Don’t start a diet that has an expiration date… focus on a lifestyle that will last forever.
The tricky thing about the mentality of “going on a diet” is that it’s very temporary. You see this in advertising all the time. “10 Day Military Diet!” “One Week Cleanse!” “Whole 30” “21-Day Fix”
None of these explain what happens after the time period is over though. Many people will go on one of these diets, and even possibly be successful, but once it’s over, they go back to their previous habits, and all that hard work gets erased. This is why it is often recommended that you make small changes. Make one little change. Get used to that change. Once that change becomes your new normal, add in another change, or make that change a bit bigger. Bit by bit, it all adds up, and since it’s your new “normal”, it is a change you can live with for the rest of your life. And that means that the results of those changes will also be life-long!
Finding an eating plan that works for you can be difficult with so many of them out there. That’s why I put together a guide outlining 12 different “diets” and listed out their pros and cons along with recommendations so you can quickly find one that will work for you. Check it out!
