There easy to do and will make your dieting a pleasure rather than
1. Be Realistic!
Healthy dieting takes time and this applies to ANY diet so don't
crash diet not only is it unhealthy it will make you ill and even
more importantly when you stop the pounds will pile back on even quicker.
Take it in simple steps but use this diet to get the fastest results
when you start and get you motivated - The cabbage soup diet.
It lasts only 1 week and is the fastest way to get started. It should
only be used for 1 week then you can switch to any healthy diet you
wish that is balanced i.e. you get all food groups
2. Starving yourself is not the answer!
Your body will only lose a few pounds a week and starving yourself
will not make it any quicker or depriving yourself of any of the major
You need to eat 5 meals a day 3 main and two snacks and make sure
you never skip breakfast to avoid hunger pangs later in the day.
While you need to eat 5 meals a day you need to keep in mind portion
control, how do you do that?
Well lets consider say rice tuna and vegetables as a meal the size
of each portion should be the size of your fist. This is a simple
way to achieve portion control
So try the above and make sure you eat 3 meals per day and snack
on as much fruit or vegetables as you wish.
3. One Day a week do the following
Follow your diet for six days a week and then on one day forget about
your diet and eat whatever you want.
There is logic here and it's the psychological impact on your mind.
If you overeat once a week you remove the one reason many diets fail,

stick with your chosen diet.

I will stick with the diet and I can still have the foods I really
want i.e I have a choice.
So won't this defeat the object of dieting No it wont, and there
are 3 reasons why:
1. It makes NO Long term difference
You will have been eating sensibly on the other six days and one
day won't make much difference.
2. It Teaches you better eating habits
By overeating and having treats you will perhaps realize that that
your body has adjusted to better eating habits.
This day may not be the pleasure you thought i.e. when every day
was a free day, or you don't actually want to eat as much as you thought
before you came to your free day.
3. It gives a choice.
By giving us choices we are more likely to stay with the diet we
Remember: To gain weight you have to eat a lot
Gaining weight is a long term process and you won't undo the good
you have done on the other six days by having a free day. What you
will do is give yourself the choice and make sticking with a diet
No one wants to be told they can't have the foods they really enjoy,
the free day gives you choice (the major reason most diets fail) and
helps you stick with sensible eating longer term.
So on your free day if you fancy a Big Mac or a pizza go ahead and
don't feel guilty dieting should be a pleasure and not a chore so
don't feel guilty.

in a healthy fashion and reach your ultimate weight while enjoying
