4 Habits of Highly Successful Dieters Revealed

By Caroline Monroe

The more you eat and the less you do, the more weight you gain. It seems like an easy formula to understand, but knowing that the more you eat and the less you work out the more weight you tend to gain, is a tough lesson to grasp for some. If we want to lose weight, and we know the formula to do so, then what seems to be the issue?

Committing to your diet and exercise program is the number one key to losing weight. The ability to avoid temptations is important, and sticking to an exercise routine and making it a habit, is the number one key to success. Sticking to this tried and true method of weight loss not only is proven by scientist, but by me. These tips are how I was able to lose a great amount of weight, in just 2 weeks.

"Lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks" is a specific goal. "Lose weight" is not. You must be able to be specific in your weight loss goals in order to achieve them. To make them come to reality, you have to be precise and accurate. If you do, you will be amazed at what happens to you and your figure. When you set specific goals, you mind and attitude will change and adapt in order to realize your goal. You will bridge the gap between where you are, and where you want to be.

Stick to a predetermined meal plan. Studies have shown that sticking to a meal plan that is already thought out will increase your chances at weight loss up to 2 - 3 times. When you are headed home and you know that dinner is a salad, but you end up defrosting a pizza, you are just sabotaging yourself and your ability to lose weight. Go with your first instincts and make the salad. Weight loss is easier and more effective with a predetermined meal plan.

Staying positive is important. Losing weight fast is not the most easy thing to do so it is important to have a healthy, positive outlook. Be aware though, that being positive and being nieve are closely related and don't think that losing weight will come easy to you. Thinking it will be easy will lower your ability to stay motivated. Stay optimistic, work hard and shoot high in your goals and they will come true.

Strengthen your mind by flexing your "self-control muscle". In order to lose weight and to keep weight off you have to practice restraint. And I do mean practice. Strengthening your self-control muscle is a practiced art and it takes awhile to build up. You don't have to go full on, anti-junk food over night, but instead, opt for an apple instead of your usual bag of chips next time you are at Penera. Small things do add up and self-control is a learned thing. Take baby-steps.

Know the formula for successful weight loss. Eat less, and work out more. But know that that is not where it stops. Successful weight loss is 90% habit, motivation and goal setting. If you are able to figure these out then you are well on your way to losing weight fast and keeping it off for good. Stay positive and stay focused and you will have success.
