So, before you 5 tips that will help you to endure the hardships and deprivations of a strict diet with a smile on your face!
I practically do not drink alcohol, so this is not a problem when I'm on a diet. However, I understand that a couple of servings of alcohol can awaken in me a brutal appetite, which it will be almost impossible to ignore.
One of the worst (and best) properties of alcohol is its ability to shoot indoor units. Without a quiet inner voice that tells you "Hey, you do not need this portion of pizza," the chances that you will go from cheese and pepperoni to gin and tonic grow geometrically, even if you are well aware of the consequences. If you are not on a diet, a portion of pizza will not kill you, but if your goal is a superstructure physique, additional calories will greatly complicate the task. In addition, the next morning you will have a heavy head.
In general, I recommend completely to remove alcohol from your diet. However, I understand that this task is not always possible. If you are on a diet, do your best to refrain from drinks. If there is nowhere to go, and you just have to take it on your chest, limit yourself to a small portion and drink away from gastronomic temptations.
Oh, this irresistible craving for chocolate, which overtakes us right before going to sleep! Probably, there are no stronger temptations than those that tempt us in the evening hours. The good news is that if your diet is under full control throughout the day, even later a treat can become part of the plan!
However, under evening delicacy I do not mean a large pack of chips and donuts; it's about the protein bar that you make with your own hands. There are a lot of useful recipes that are poor in calories, but they contain a lot of protein and differ tremendous and exquisite taste. On the Internet, you can find recipes for mouth-watering protein cakes with chocolate flavor, ice cream, cupcakes and many other goodies!
I like one more way to deal with temptations – to avoid situations when snacks will be literally at hand. Do not store chips, salted nuts and chocolate bars at home. The probability that you will change your diet will be much less, if for the sake of a treat you have to drag yourself into the store.
3 Council: openly state your goals
Friends and family members have a significant impact on your choice of products. Even if I have already set up to eat a certain dish, a small push from the right person is enough to get me off the chosen course. Surrendering is really simple, if your beloved aunt persistently asks you to try her famous pastry.
I must say that I do not ask you to delete the relatives from your life during the diet, but it is very important that you openly talk with them about your goals. Even if your family and your friends do not understand something, take the time to tell them about your plans and what kind of support you need from the family.
There is nothing reprehensible in frankly talking with my aunt. Tell her that baking does not fit into the concept of your nutrition program, but after the end of the diet, you will try it with pleasure.
Diet can be a tremendous stress. And the last thing you need is for someone to mock your selection of products. Therefore, spend more time with people who respect your choice and support you in every possible way. They will show more understanding and are unlikely to make you feel at home.
Sleep has a tremendous impact on the hormonal balance. Deficiency of night sleep negatively affects the secretion of hormones that control appetite and hunger. A tired mind can easily accept a harmful product as an energy source.
To improve efficiency in the gym, strengthen willpower and improve overall well-being, try to sleep every night for 7-9 hours. We are all busy and live at a feverish pace, but the priority of a night's sleep is a competent and useful choice.
If the list of your goals includes a good physical condition, you must do everything necessary to move towards these goals. Do yourself a favor: go to bed early!
5 Tip: Remember, this is a lifestyle
If your diet is confined to a particular event, you should be even more attentive to what gets into your body. On a small time interval you are able to resist any temptations. Therefore, do not go crazy if you have not eaten a day's serving of chocolate.
These difficult choices and time constraints can be an excellent training for profound changes in the style of life. Everyone can be a little healthier, and not just for a few months of the year.
Start with a change in eating habits – this will give a powerful push for global changes in lifestyle that you can enjoy all year round. For example, try Protein homemade ice cream instead of a shopping plombir, or instead of regular chocolate bring to the party protein bars.
These small changes will be summarized, and eventually will teach you how to lead a healthy lifestyle, to which everyone should strive.
