So you’ve finally decided to start a diet, congratulations!
But there is one problem, you don’t know where to start. Don’t worry we got you covered!
Here are 5 quick tips that will help kick start your weight loss journey on the right foot!
1. Get Your Body Information
Weight loss is a lot more than just looking at numbers on a scale.
First you need to weigh yourself and get your pre-diet weight, you should also take other physical measurements so you can keep track of your progress.
You should take a before photo to help with motivation later on. Get a measuring tape and measure your entire body.
Start with your neck and do your shoulders, chest, bicep, waist, hips, and thighs.
By tracking your body features you’ll have an accurate view of what’s working for you and what isn’t.
This will help you shape your diet plan and what part of your body you would like to focus on improving first.
2. Choose The Correct Diet Plan
Stay away from fad diets such as diet plans that promise exaggerated weight loss results in a short amount of time.
Be sure to research multiple options that provide you long term results and are medically backed.
Choosing a plan that suits your lifestyle is ideal because you must leverage every situation towards your goal.
After your diet is over the real challenge will be maintaining your new figure after the initial weight loss.
3. Clean House, Toss All Junk Food
Before you start any type of diet you must get rid of all those tempting snacks laying around the house.
Empty your entire house, car and any secret stashes!
After clearing out all your junk food head to your nearest whole food store and choose organic healthy foods.
4. Set Personal Goals
When you’re ready to start your diet it’s best to have a set goal weight you wish to hit.
If you aren’t specific about a certain weight you won’t be able to measure and track your progress.
It’s best to have a set of short and long term goals, when things start getting tough (which they will) you will have incentive to keep going.
5. Measure Food Portion Sizes
This is the main key to get you into that slim black dress you’ve been eyeballing!
Just because you’re now shopping at whole foods DOES NOT mean you can eat crazy portions of food.
In order to see desired results you must measure how many calories you intake!
Now that you have a little understanding of how to get started, the next step is to start!
