10 Don’ts Of Losing Weight (Part 2)

Dieting can be one of the hardest things you ever do in your lifetime. There are many dos and don’ts to dieting. If you follow these then maybe you won’t fall off the wagon and start eating stupidly. You absolutely do want to stay away from these don’ts if you want you’re dieting to work. This will be a 2 part miniseries that I hope all will look at and use for their present and future diet endeavors.

6. Stay Away from Your Scale

Everybody always wants to see if their hard work is paying off so three times a day they are running to the scale. Weight loss has some funny fluctuations sometimes like gaining a little before losing a bit more. This is something that is going to turn you of and result in failure. So if you go to the scale everyday you’re just going to end up quitting your diet.

7. You Have To Control Your Feelings

Eating is too easy of a vice. When people get mad, frustrated, sad or even happy they eat. But you know this so you have to deal with it. You know that when you’re bored you grab that bag of chips so it’s important to come to term with these issues and make sure your in control and not your feelings.

8. Its Often Hard To Do It Yourself

As we said earlier everyone is different. It’s really not a bad thing to ask for help. There are people that are trained for stuff like this. The other alternative is family or friends. If it’s too much for you to handle on your own then yes you will fail so why not get some help and succeed.

9. You Still Have To Eat Happy

You can’t cut yourself off entirely from your favorite foods. You will want to cut back on them and maybe use them as a reward for good progression in your diet. At the end of the day if you do things right the occasional chocolate bar or soda pop is not going to make a difference on the out come.

10. You Have To Do Your Homework

You’re going to have to write things down. Study these lists. See where you’re going wrong. Propose changes where they need to be. You have to be honest with yourself. If you just try and rely on will power to take care of it all then you’re doomed right from the beginning.

This is the end of part two in a two part series on the don’ts of dieting. If you’re a new dieter then it’s important that you have a look at these. Dieting doesn’t have to be a frightening experience for you. Go ahead and share these tips with your fellow dieters. I am confident they will make your weight loss more enjoyable.
