Top 5 Diet Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
By Daniel Harper
Following a proper diet is very crucial if you want to achieve a healthier and better looking body. But sometimes mistakes happen and instead of getting abs, you end up gaining flabs. It’s called “yo-yo dieting” and this kind of result gives you a defeated feeling that it will be hard to motivate yourself again to do better. So, before you get stuck in this deadly cycle of dieting, read about the top 5 diet mistakes and how to avoid them.
Skipping breakfast. This is a very common mistake among dieters and sometimes can be difficult to avoid. People usually skip breakfast when you’re running late for work or just don’t have the time to fix your own breakfast. The result is you end up so hungry later during the day that it’ll be hard for you to resist junk food, fast food and getting double servings during lunch. What you can do to avoid skipping breakfast is to stock up on easy to eat breakfast meals such as oatmeal or whole grain cereals. If it can’t be avoided, bring a cup of yogurt or a piece of fruit like an apple or a banana.
Going on a celebrity diet. Almost everyone wanted to have a body of a celebrity and most think that in order to achieve it is to follow the celebrity’s way of dieting. That involves restricting one food group such as carbohydrates. The problem with following celebrity diets is that your body is not identical to that of a celebrity and sustaining that kind of diet can be dangerous for you. Instead, you can go on a low-fat diet but still containing all the food groups in smaller servings.
I can burn it off. I’m sure there are people out there believe that they can eat whatever they want then just burn off those calories through exercise. The truth is exercise alone is not enough. If you are eating too much than what you can burn then it is a losing battle. Be aware of what you eat and never depend on exercise alone. Make sure that you are taking in less calories than what you can burn.
Eating a lot of low-fat foods. This kind of diet is doomed to fail. Most people who are eating low-fat or fat-free foods are more likely to have a larger serving. The larger the serving, even if it’s nonfat, means more calories. And those extra calories turn to fat. What you can do is to be aware of the amount of calories and eat your greens. Make sure that you include a healthy serving of vegetables in your diet as they are low in calories yet extra filling.
Jumping on a “Lose Weight Quickly” scheme. Those advertisements promising that you’ll lose weight just by sitting on your couch doing nothing is really tempting. Yet you’re wondering why is not working. Accept the truth that getting the healthy body that you want requires hard work. And that means getting up from that couch, starting a proper diet and exercising regularly.
Let’s not forget that not everything that is easy, fast and convenient is good for us. It’s also wise to think that what works well for others may not be safe for you. Being healthy is about knowing your body and what is good for you. A healthy body requires knowledge, hard work, and a lot of patience. “What some call health, if purchased by perpetual anxiety about diet, isn’t much better than tedious disease.” ~Alexander Pope
