Most diet programs draw you in promising quick results. "Follow this plan and lose 7 lbs in one week." "Loose that belly by Spring."
The best diet plans are no diet at all but a change in lifestyle.
Sure, I can starve myself and lose 7 lbs in a week and wear that dress to that "big" event but will that really help me be around when I'm 90? I seriously doubt it.
When you are looking for a plan to lose weight choose the ones that will help you do the following:
1. lower your food intake
2. increase exercise activity
I know this sounds difficult but it is not.
Not when you look at it as taking one tiny step at a time. The first tiny step you could start today would be to eat one less cookie tonight before bed, go for a 5 minute walk, drink one less soda, have one scoop instead of two.
You'd be surprised how far you can go when you take losing weight as "one slow step at a time" instead of "hurry up and never really get there."
Start today taking that first step and you will be "feeling fit and loving it" before you know it!
