Why Is Dieting Difficult?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

In a lot of cases we will find that keeping a diet oe exercise program going is just to hard. If we do not see resuls quickly we tend to stop because we are busy people. Keeping with a good healthy program of food and exercise takes time and commitment and so we need to decide if we are ready to make the effort.

We like to take the easy way out. There have been a lot of medical advances made over the years to make it seem we just need to pop a pill and we will be slim again. We need to realize that we will need to put in some effort.

Unfortunately most diets are just too difficult for people to maintain for any length of time and that is why the failure rate is so high. We tend to look for the quick solution most of the time. That is something we do to try and solve most of our problems in life whether it is weightloss, exercise, nutrition, parenting etc.

If faced with two styles of weight loss as an example. Choose the easier one. This will hepl you to stay with the program while still gaining the results you want.

Don't think to yourself. "I am on a diet" This can cause undo stress and is something to stasy away from. Rather think of it as a lifestyle change for the better.

The word "Diet" is scaryto a lot of people. Failing is a concern simply because maybe we have failed in the past and might fail again.

Think instead of changing your lifestyle in small bits at a time. Change how much food is in a serving. Change what type of foods you are eating and how often you eat. Don't think of the whole overall diet as this can be scary and over time you might not succeed.

People tend to think dieting is unpleasant and hard to do. So maybe just think of changing your nutrition and fitness levels as an alternative.

Really it is all in the mind. Your mind controls what you do. If you constantly think something is to hard and won't work, it probably won't. If you have the attitude that I will accomplish small steps at a time and remain positive you will more likely reach your ultimite goal.

Focus on lifestyle changes rather than a eating less food. You won't feel like you are missing out on what you enjoy. Food.

We all enjoy eating good food, so, enjoy! The main thing is be aware of what you are eating and how much you are eating.

Eat just one helping per meal, instead of going for seconds. Eat more vegetables, fruits and salads and cut out red meats and junk food. If you include meat in your diet, eat fish and chicken.

Remember common sense is key here. Combine your eating habits with a fitness training schedule and you will be successful. Don't give up and don't bite off more than you can chew.
