Starting a New Years Diet? There's never been a better time to change your eating habits, lose weight and get healthier. A new year brings the momentum you often need to make changes and achieve your brand new body.
Here are 3 tips to help you lose weight on your New Years diet and make healthier changes:
#1 Take Your Time
Just as with any New Years resolution, take some time to assess where you want to go and what you want to achieve. Write down your goals and what kind of eating plan or diet would seem logical and doable for you. Then choose a New Year's diet based on what feels right for you.
Don't just plunge into the latest popular diet. Take your time and really choose a weight loss plan that fits with your beliefs, goals and lifestyle.
#2 Let Go Of the Past
A new year is a great time to let go of the past. Let go of last year - any failures, hard times or setbacks. This can also mean clearing out old foods that you no longer want to indulge in.
Let go of who you were last year and strive to build a new you this year - a healthier, stronger, more positive you.
If you keep hanging on to the past and remembering past diet failures or hangups, it can keep you stuck in a weight loss rut. Letting go can lighten you up (psychologically and literally) to strive forward to a new, thinner you.
#3 Focus on the New Foods You Can Eat Instead of Old Foods That Are Not On Your Diet Plan
This is something that seems obvious but most people don't do it. Don't think 'Oh man, I can't eat pizza anymore' or 'I really wish I could still eat those donuts'. Banish thoughts of what you 'can't' eat from your mind.
Instead, focus on the foods that you can eat. Think about fresh strawberries or that delicious veggie omelette you're going to have for breakfast tomorrow.
It's a proven fact that we are drawn to what we focus on - even if it's in the negative (for example, 'don't think about chocolate chip cookies'). So if you don't want to be drawn to old, unhealthy foods, focus instead on thinking about the new healthy foods on your diet plan.
So those are 3 tips to help you on your New Years diet. Take your time, let go of your dieting past and focus on the new foods you can eat. It may take a bit of work at first but it will get easier and you'll be enjoying a new, slimmer body in no time at all!
