Hi guys, so I am now on a diet, and I would like your tips. Also wanted to tell you about a great free app I found called LoseIt, they also have a site at loseit.com. Anyway, the app keeps up with your weight progress with a clever graph. It also lets you enter what you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner and counts calories.
Wish me luck, and pass along your tips and motivation.
Hey, good luck and don't worry. Diets are easier than most people make them out to be. I mean if you think about, diets are mostly about not doing things. Now I don't know about you, but I am ridiculously good at not doing things. There are so many things right now that I could be doing, and I'm not doing any of them. You see, it's that easy.
I have a very negative view of traditional dieting, and here's the reason. A diet is a temporary restriction of what you normally do. After a goal is achieved, most people tend to drift back to their typical habits. I have two pieces of advice that I think are absolutely foolproof, and don't require any traditional dieting. Firstly, the easy one, don't keep any snack foods in the house. Snack foods are called snack foods because you eat them between meals, and they're essentially irresistible if you have them on hand (including soda); who can not eat a bowl of ice cream or a few cookies when they're there for the taking? If you don't buy it, you won't miss it after a couple weeks when it becomes the new normal for you.
