One of the biggest reasons people lose weight initially and end up gaining it all back, is they follow popular weight loss trends. When you try to follow new trends, you end up on diet plans which only give short term results, but are not sustainable long term.
The big question you need to ask yourself before you commit to a diet plan is “Can I follow this diet for the rest of my life?” If the answer is no, you will more than likely follow the diet for a few months, begin to see results, and then put all the weight you lose back on. However, if the answer is yes, and it is a diet you can stay on for the rest of your life, you will ultimately see results because you can commit to the diet. Once you have found a diet you can commit too, you can follow this diet long term and begin to see the results over time. Even better, you will not fall off of the diet and lose all your progress.
If you have found a diet you can see yourself staying on for the rest of your life, it is important to make sure you enjoy it. Therefore, you should not use diets which cut out carbs or your favourite foods, because you will not cut these foods out of your diet for the rest of your life. You will be miserable not being able to eat the foods you want, and will eventually break your diet and lose all your progress. This is why it is so important to have a diet which allows you to eat your favourite foods, so you can stay on it and not have to break your diet.
Another key part to dieting is not focusing on the short term, and instead of looking long term for your results. When you focus short term, people tend to pick a diet which gets their short term results of weight loss, but after accomplishing these short term goals, you put all the weight back on. Instead, if you focus long term and set up a diet plan which can be followed for years, you will see results gradually come in, and you will not lose your progress. By having this sustainable diet, you will make steady progress and not gain back the weight you lose by constantly going on and off difficult diet plans.
In conclusion, difficult diets which force you to cut out certain foods and not eat the foods you enjoy are the reason for losing weight and gaining it all back. When choosing a diet, it is important to pick a diet plan which allows you to go out to eat, eat your favourite foods, and enjoy your life. If you can find a diet which you enjoy, and where you can eat all of your favourite foods, you will not have to go on and off of a diet and you will see results. These results will last, unlike the temporary results you get from extremely restrictive diets. This video further explains why hard diets cause you to lose weights and gain it back, while sustainable diets help you lose weight and keep it off.
