Do you go on a diet or do you just start living a healthier lifestyle? That question is on the minds of millions of dieter’s that embark on that dreaded journey of losing unwanted pounds. What is better to do? What makes more sense? What will produce not just results, but lasting results? Well, for me personally, dieting is what got me amazing results… and in this article I’m going to talk about 4 reasons why.
But first… I just wanted to quickly mention that I am in no way advocating that living a healthy lifestyle is not a good idea. It IS a great idea… and it’s actually very necessary. However, what I’m talking about is that for you to GET in shape, I believe that it is better for you to diet, and for you to STAY in shape, it obviously makes sense to continue living a healthier lifestyle. I could actually end the article right there, but I just want to help you out in understanding why it is so important to go on a diet program…
1.) Going on a simple, effective, and 100% all natural diet produces results. What happens when results are produced? Yup, you guessed it… you get more motivation! What happens when you get more motivation? Yup, you guessed it again… you will stay consistent and ultimately reach the body of your dreams!
Starting off your transformation with simply changing things around to living a healthier lifestyle requires that YOU design everything. Unless you are a professional with diet and fitness, this can certainly be very difficult to do. And it certainly will then translate to you losing motivation… and that’s because amazing results are least likely to happen.
2.) Effective diets do not have you eating the same things everyday. This is HUGE. The reason why is because not only will you get bored and lose interest with dieting if you are eating the same things everyday, you are training your body to SETTLE down to eating habits. If your body SETTLES down to your eating habits, your bodies fat burning hormones slows down as well. When you consistently change your eating patterns around (known as shifting calories), you stay motivated and you skyrocket your bodies fat burning hormones.
3.) The best diet programs have a much better structure to the types of nutrients and calories you need on a day to day basis versus something we can come up with on our own. This makes perfect sense as to why you should go on a natural diet to reach your goals… unless of course you are a certified nutritionist.
4.) The best diets are not only easy to stick to, they also make it easy to transition to living a healthier lifestyle permanently. Remember what I said above: It’s best to start off dieting and then live a healthy lifestyle. BUT… if you are on some restrictive unnatural fad diet, then you will certainly find it very difficult transitioning from those types of diets to eating normal again. In fact, one of the biggest issues that develop with going on “fad diets” is that when you do start eating normal again, you PUT THE WEIGHT BACK ON! The reason why is because those unnatural diets slow your metabolism down, and once you start eating normal, majority of the calories you eat are stored as excess calories!
Tips On Choosing An Effective Diet…
A.) What I recommend you do first is make sure that the diet program is natural and is based on eating ALL types of nutrients and NEVER starving yourself or restricting calories too much.
B.) Next, I recommend you check to see if it is based on doing dieting methods that will NATURALLY boost your metabolism.
C.) Another thing to check for is if the diet is based on getting NORMAL FOODS. And by normal foods, I’m talking about the fresh and natural foods you get from a grocery store. In other words, you should not have to have foods delivered to you, and I certainly do not recommend those prepackaged meal programs. Those types of foods are processed, they have ton of sodium, and they are packed with preservatives.
