Top 7 Ways To Increase Self-Discipline To Stick With Dieting And Exercising

If most people had the self-discipline of a Samurai or U.S. Marine (ooh-rah!), then most people would probably be in the best shape and health of their life. Unfortunately for most of us, getting self-discipline to start, stick to, and finish a diet and exercise program is something that is hard to come by. Sure you could just sign up for some fitness boot camp, etc., but most of us don’t have the time or money to be dedicating ourselves to something like that. So, what can you do? How can you increase self-discipline to stick with dieting and exercising?

Below I’m going to share with you my top 7 ways that I have practiced during my journey to get in better shape and health. Now, please understand that these tips are not etched in stone. These are things that I personally did that helped me overcome lazy thinking and being physically lazy. Since I think I’m a normal person (lol), I figured these tips should work for you as well…

1. Start off easy…

Yes, it is motivating and exciting when you first get started with a diet and exercise program. And because of that, most people want to get started by jumping in with both feet. This ends up causing them to start some type of super restrictive diet program and crazy intense fitness program. That in turn causes them to lose motivation within the 1st week!

What I have found is that if you start off easy, and gradually increase the intensity of fitness and gradually increase the healthiness of your diet, then you will more than likely stick to it.

2. Constantly seek motivation…

Don’t just get motivated in the beginning of your program. SEEK (which means to continually look for) motivation on a constant basis. Doing so will keep that strong motivation bug going through you pumping you up for the next workout or keeping you focused on eating the right foods.

3. If it’s not in your house… then…

You won’t be eating it! To get self-discipline to avoid eating foods that are bad for you, the number one thing you should be doing is keeping it out of your house to begin with.

4. Choose a diet that won’t conflict with your daily lifestyle…

If you have a hectic lifestyle, then going on some type of crazy diet program not only will be ineffective (and that’s because it’s a fad diet), it will also be difficult to stick to. Natural diet programs are the best diets to go on because they are the easiest to stick to and of course, they are the one’s that produce the best results.

5. Exercise early in the morning…

If your life is busy, then one of the best times for you to workout may be first thing in the morning. Now remember this: To ensure you don’t burn off muscle tissue during a workout, I recommend that you eat something high in protein and moderate with carbohydrates prior to working out in the morning. It could be something like a banana (carbs) and a protein shake (protein).

6. Educate…

To really increase your self-discipline and motivation to stick with healthy dieting and fitness, one of the best things you could ever possibly do is to educate yourself on the wonders of eating right and exercising, and the dangers of eating poorly and being a couch potato. Trust me on this, once you find out what that double cheeseburger with a strawberry milkshake is doing to your body, both of those things won’t start to look so good!

7. Only do the things that have been PROVEN to produce results…

There is nothing more damaging to your motivational levels than being pumped up on your diet and fitness program… “thinking”… that you are doing something great with your body, only to find out later that you have been doing more harm than good. This nightmare happens when people go on fad diet programs or they do ineffective fitness programs that are more focused on cardio. Fad diets slow your metabolism down and too much cardio without building muscle causes you to lose muscle tissue (which slows your metabolism as well).
