Started a diet, and struggling to stick to it? You aren’t alone. When I first started following the Paleo diet, I really struggled to avoid all of the naught foods I wanted: pasta, ice cream, you name – I wanted those deep fried chips and hot dogs. Luckily, I found some tips that helped me avoid giving into my cravings, and I’m going to share them with you now.
One of the first tips to sticking to your diet and avoiding bad food when being indulged by friends is to just take a little of what’s being served to get friends off your back. A kind, ‘I’m really stuffed but I couldn’t help having some of that’ is a nice way to make you and your companion glad. Another thing to do is to create a habit of serving yourself when ‘tempted’ by the bad food which you’re trying to stay off.
Another thing you should be careful off asides food is also watching out for drinks which could be harmful to the schedule you have drawn up for yourself and try to share the details for your diet to friends close to you. The importance of this is that people around you who realize why you are doing this will more likely help you achieve your aim. Most importantly however is a personal decision to be firm on your plans. Your reason to go on the diet is first and foremost for your own god, hence you should channel your efforts towards this effectively. A good way of achieving this is by following a game plan effectively.
And at the end of the day, while it may be tempting to pick up that hot dog, just remember: it isn’t worth it! It isn’t worth it to eat it and everything else you’re eating that you shouldn’t, and not have that bikini body that you’ve always wanted. Keep your eye on the prize, and stay true to your diet.
