One Change Can Make All The Difference

Ever wondered why some people manage to keep their weight off easily and others just pile it all back on when they stop that new diet? The answer is easy, it comes down to one simple change.

Before we get to that simple change, you need to keep in mind these rules of thumb when it comes to dieting.

1. Never do a diet which forbids a food group. This is simply asking for trouble. One day, not matter how hard you try, you will eat something from the forbidden food group and fail. Not very positive is it? You are setting yourself up for disappointment. Dieting is hard enough, so try and make it easy as humanly possible.

2. Never give up trying. Overeating is a little like smoking, they are both addictive, costly and bad for your health. People recognise the world over that giving up smoking is very difficult but overeating is seen as a weakness. No matter what people may think, you can lose weight. Choose a diet that is right for you and start again. Never give up trying.

3. Seek help. You can get help with your weight loss program from lots of different sources. Online forums are free places where you can discuss your diet and meet new friends. You can motivate one another. If you are too shy for forums then some weight loss programmes offer online support as one of their packages but these usually involve a charge. Help from friends and family is free and invaluable to your dieting efforts. Help can motivate you and encourage you to hit your slimming goals.

Now these three points should help you to chose a healthy diet and motivate you into trying to lose those extra pounds.

Back to that simple change.

People who keep their weight loss off, change tiny things in their daily life.

Instead of full fat milk they have skimmed, they grill rather than fry and they choose to reduce the amount of cheese, cream, cakes and biscuits they eat, every single day.

Now you are immediately going to say that that is lots of changes not just one. To some degree you would be correct, but not completely.

If you look at a photograph it is one small picture but when looked at closely, it is made up of thousands of pixels. One small sugar cube is made up of hundreds of sugar grains and a handkerchief consists of numerous cotton threads. Almost everything in the world, no matter how small, can be broken down into even smaller parts. All those tiny parts still only amount to one small thing.

You make several tiny changes to your lifestyle which you genuinely do not mind and weight loss becomes easy. Remember, they have to be changes that you will hardly notice, low fat spread instead of full fat, low calorie squash or just eating more fruit.

Make the one small change to adjust your eating habits slightly and permanently and even if you break your diet program, you could still lose weight slowly and steadily.

Good luck with whichever weight loss program you choose and happy,easy slimming!
