It is difficult for most people to get into a healthy eating program. You have been eating all those fried foods and pumping all those cokes and beers for such a long time now that even thinking about giving them all up can be a nightmare.
In fact, most people don‟t think about eating healthy because of this paranoia associated with dieting. They don‟t think they will be able to survive it. But, of course, you need not be so excruciating on yourself right from the start. Start slow, drop one type of food at a time. You don‟t necessarily have to stop everything you eat if you can reduce the quantity and frequency.
Alternatively, you could eat healthy through the week and have a small feast for one of your weekend meals. These are some ways to get around the confinement of healthy eating, but even so people need motivation.
Always Keep a Goal in Mind
The stronger your goal is, the more motivated you will be. This goal could be anything – you want to look better before an upcoming social event, you want to feel better, you want to become more active and energetic, you want to do things that you cannot do because of your weight, you want to keep living a healthy life, or simply that you want to show a friend who ridiculed you! The important thing is that you have to keep this goal sternly in mind and then use it as your motivating factor.
Resolve that You Won’t Give Up
If you make a resolution that you won‟t give up, you will find it harder to deviate from your healthy eating regimen. If possible, make this resolution in front of your family or friends or the colleagues at work. This helps because whenever you are tempted to eat something unhealthy, you will remember your resolution and will stop.
Pick Up a Difficult Hobby
You could try getting yourself interested in something that is difficult for you to do at the moment, but will become easier once your body is in better shape. Swimming and dancing are good choices. These activities can keep you much interested if you try them out once, but you will need to get in better shape to do them well. The fun part is that when you swim or dance, you are automatically losing weight!
Get a Partner
This is the best motivation you could get. Get someone else with a similar problem to start the program of healthy eating with you. The two of you will be great encouragers for each other. You could even compete against each other and check out who is doing better. This helps because you are not alone in this mission; you have company.
