How to Stay on Diet

Hey guys, here are some great tips on how to stay on a diet.

  • Pick a good diet plan. Make sure you select one that is not only well balanced, but include food you like as well. There’s no need to eliminate high-caloried favorites if you know how to fit them in.
  • Allow enough time to diet. Crash diets usually depend on changes in water balance for rapid weight loss. You need to lose fat, not water. A one to two pounds a week loss is sensible rate for both men and women.
  • Set Formal goals. Make a chart on graphing paper. Fill in your current weight, then a pound less until you get your desired weight. On the bottom line, fill in the number of weeks it will take to reach your goal. If you’re on schedule, you’ll have a straight line going diagonally across the chart.
  • Throw Out All Fattening treats. The fewer the temptation you have around, the easier it is to resist “just one”.
  • Keep Busy. If you tend to nibble while watching television, occupy your hands with knitting or make up crossword puzzles.
  • Don’t expect dieting to be easy. There will be hungry days while you are adjusting to the smaller amounts of food allowed in your diet.
  • Count everything you eat for few days.
  • Take small bites and eat slowly.
  • East at least three meals a day.
  • Have small meals on small plates.
  • Avoid lunch and dinner invitations.
  • Trade secrets with a dieting friend.
  • Mark milestone. When you have lost five or ten pounds, get a new girdle to make yourself more shapely.
  • Make a new dress or get out an old favorite that is a size or two small.
  • Stamp out boredom.
  • Exercise to relax and keep firm as you lose weight.
  • Get eight hours sleep.
  • Go Swimming, play tennis or really active ping pong once a week, if you can. They are really marvelous exercise and use up extra calories.
  • Weight yourself at the same time each day.
  • When the urge for candy arises, suck on a small sour ball (less than 25 calorie each)
  • Take a long walk each day after dinner.
  • When you go out to eat, try Chinese foods. Many of their dishes are low in calorie.
  • Fill up on liquids. Water, black coffee or tea and low calorie soda all help fill an empty stomach.
  • Make a mental note of tips that have helped you the most. Make them daily habits.
