A Diet is Never a Diet

For many people a diet can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. Constantly surrounded by temptations that seem so hard to pass up. Which leaves the question: What do you do? Be healthy and have a salad or choose an unhealthy choice by having a Big Mac and fries from McDonald’s?

Now the healthier choice would be the salad, but eating salad all the time can be boring. The key to dieting is not necessarily banning out all the foods you like, or sticking to a specific regimen, but instead having a healthy balanced lifestyle that works best for yourself.

Of course portion size and how food is prepared does play a factor in a diet too. Bottom line is, a diet should never feel like a diet. The harder and more persistent you try to keep yourself on a set regimen, the more likely things may start to backfire, eventually giving in to your cravings that you may have been suppressing for so long.

A diet should never feel like a chore or job because it is part of your life, not something that has to have rules. The most satisfying thing about embracing a new lifestyle change is being creative. Have fun with it and try out different recipes. The more you cook at home, the more you can control what ingredients are going into your body. You may even spend less money since you’ll be cutting back on restaurants and take-out.

Just simple and minor changes in YOUR lifestyle can go a long way in the benefit of your health. For example: Instead of always getting a side of fries, try substituting for vegetables or foods with fiber. That way you stay fuller longer and it eliminates some of the carbs and starch you find in potatoes. Another tip is adding more water into your life instead of always grabbing for juice or a fizzy drink.

The more water you drink, the clearer your skin and you’ll be less likely to have breakouts. Water may even help if you are having trouble with a dry scalp or dry hair.

Cutting back on salty and greasy foods can make you feel less bloated and perhaps decrease water retention in the body, which leads to water weight. The possibilities of what you should eat, and not eat, are endless. You can always find millions of resources through books and the internet . Even if you may not be the best cook, it is never too late to learn. When all is said and done, remember that life is about choices. So what if you have a couple of cheat days, the world is not going to end. Don’t beat yourself up, there will always be time to pick right back up where you left off.

Life is about learning from your mistakes and not being perfect. So remember these 2 things if you ever decide make a change in your lifestyle: improvise and substitute. Best of all, a diet is never set in stone.
