– If you’re among those who blame time for their diet woes, stop right there. While most people lead fast-paced lifestyles, trying to balance jobs, homes and relationships, if you’re serious about losing weight, time should certainly not be an excuse. Don’t go overboard while making your diet meals. Instead, eat small meals at regular intervals and also snack on nuts and salads
– In a bad mood Think that is an excuse to go on a binge eating spree No matter how much of a bad day you’re having, never think that food can be the answer to your problems. One bar of chocolate or a scoop of ice cream can lead to several more and you’ll eventually regret it. Instead, divert your mind so that it doesn’t automatically go towards food.
– Going on a diet doesn’t mean you have to spend a bomb on expensive diet food. Remove all junk food from your refrigerator and stock up on fresh fruits and vegetables. Keep portion sizes small.
– While some people are blessed with great metabolism, not everyone is that lucky. But that does not mean you blame your ‘slow’ metabolism for not going on a diet. In fact, you need to be stricter with yourself if your metabolism is slow so that your body does not store all those excess calories.
