The "5 Commandments" Of Smart Dieting
To really see best results from any diet plan you choose to use, you need to learn a few ‘diet commandments’. These are guidelines that MUST be followed if you are going to see superior results that will help propel you forward.
Sadly, many people miss out on one or more of these, causing the diet plan they choose to fail.
Here's a list of 5 "diet commandments" that have been proven to help dieters experience some serious weight loss:
1: Thou Shall Eat More Protein
Of all the foods that you could eat while on a fat loss diet, protein is perhaps the most important. Protein helps combat hunger, it helps stabilize blood glucose levels, and it helps prevent lean muscle mass loss. This in turn helps speed up your metabolism and accelerates the process of fat loss.
Don’t let your diet intake fall short. Aim to eat some protein in each and every meal and snack that you consume. (CAUTION: Please stay away from Protein Bars! SEE Fat Loss Foods Sabotaging Your Diet)
2: Thou Shall Eat Regularly
While the concept that your metabolism will increase the more often you eat isn’t entirely accurate - as the boost you get after a meal is directly related to the size of that meal -eating regularly does help to keep hunger at bay.
By feeding your body frequently throughout the day, you’ll help avoid food cravings, energy lows, and make it that much easier to stick to your diet program.
3: Thou Shall Prioritize Fresh Foods
When selecting your foods, eating fresh is a MUST. We live in a world where processed foods are around every corner, just waiting to cause us weight gain.
If you only make one change in your diet plan, make it this one.... Eliminate the processed foods and you’ll really give your diet a boost. Focus on foods in their natural state - fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, healthy fats and oils, and lean proteins.
4: Thou Shall Set Short Term Goals
ALWAYS set short term goal for yourself and make it a MUST to abide by them. Think about what you are doing in the here and now, not months from now. It’s too easy to lose sight of your goals if they are going to take place six months to a year down the road.
Try thinking in three-week segments. Three weeks is about how long it takes for good habits to form, which makes it the perfect amount of time for you to build behaviors that will stand the test of time.
This is precisely why The 3 Week Diet was created. It will help you stay motivated and consistent until you don’t even have to think about making those changes any longer... They’ll just be automatic.
5: Thou Shall Stop Comparisons
Finally, stop comparing yourself to others. Realize that this is your own journey and your own body. It’s unlike anyone else’s so you simply can’t expect to see the same results as everyone else.
Instead, start comparing yourself today to yourself from yesterday. That will give you all the details you need to know. And if you are getting better each day, then you are succeeding in your goal to lose weight and improve your overall health.
Keep these diet commandments in mind. Focus on these and you can feel confident that you are headed in the right direction.
