There are a number of things you can do while on a diet program that can cause you to not get results. However, there is one thing that many people do that ends up affecting the 2 of the most important aspects of you improving your body (your motivation level and your metabolism). To find out what this terrible thing is and what you can do to avoid it, continue reading to learn more.
You see, as I said above, there are a number of things you can do during a diet that can cause some serious setbacks on your quest to getting the body of your dreams. Some of those things are going on fad diets, taking diet pills, starving yourself, or ignoring any one of the core principles of healthy living (which are drinking more water, getting more sleep, eating ALL types of important nutrients, and exercising at least 3 days a week). With that said, those are common problems that can be fixed very quickly.
But, during a diet, many people do something else that ends up causing issues with their metabolism and ends up causing them to lose a ton of motivation to stick with their goals. My friend, this serious problem is having INSANE cheat days or cheat meals!
Now yes, it is highly recommended that you have cheat foods or cheat days during a diet program. In fact, there are diet programs based specifically around having cheat days. The reasons why is because having a SMART cheat day can actually increase your metabolic rate and it will also keep you from feeling deprived.
The problem comes in when people have outrageous cheat days where they eat extremely terrible foods and/or they eat WAY too many calories. The problem with doing this is that for one, you can end up screwing up your metabolism. You’ll also cause SERIOUS issues with your digestive system (bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and more). And last but certainly not least, you can end up losing a TON of motivation and start feeling guilty like never before!
So, what can you do to fix this? Well, what I recommend first off is that you find a diet program that is based around having STRATEGIC cheat days. Diets like this are HIGHLY effective because they do an amazing job with increasing your bodies fat burning hormones… and you’ll more than likely stick to a diet like this since you aren’t depriving yourself as much. Secondly, I recommend the obvious: TAKE IT EASY! I know you may be craving everything under the sun after dieting so clean for sometime, however, you have to take those negative consequences into consideration.
Also, another tip that I highly recommend you consider is to have “smart” cheat foods. What I mean by that is to eat foods that you shouldn’t really eat often, but they are actually still pretty good for you. For example, one of my favorite “cheat snacks” are dark chocolate covered almonds! Think about it: You have dark chocolate (which is loaded with antioxidants and can help burn fat). You have almonds (which have healthy fat plus many other benefits). Put those 2 together and you have a VERY DELICIOUS (and pretty healthy) cheat snack! You could even have alternatives of your favorite cheat foods as well.
