The One Mistake You're Making On A Diet That's Preventing You From Losing Weight

November 15, 2016 by Lisa Fogarty

If all diets worked like a charm, there would never be a need to go on yet another diet every time the scale tips upward. Anyone who has ever felt frustrated by a lack of results on a diet, despite feeling like they’re doing everything they can and even depriving themselves to lose weight, may be making one huge mistake that is costing them in the long run.

Having a weight loss goal is a great thing–it gives you something tangible to work toward. But having an overly ambitious weight loss goal can mean the difference between actually shedding unwanted fat and building muscle and seeing little or no improvement in your health.

“People do too much too fast and set themselves up for failure,” says personal trainer Wes Showalter at Instructor Studio Three. “Diet is about building and maintaining habits for your healthy lifestyle–if you want lifelong results you need chronic grooving, not just acute changes.”

One step that Showalter says he finds helpful is for someone to write down three things they know they should do, take ONE of the three they KNOW they can do starting right now, and get on it.

“[For] example: Drink one glass of water every night before bed,” Showalter says. “Once the person has been able to perform one of the three tasks consistently for about 2-3 weeks, add another one of the three original tasks. This will build a sense of self confidence as well as get a steam rolling effect, as opposed to 10 different things at once and setting someone up for failure and negative self talk which inevitably makes them bail all together. Build the house brick by brick, start small and feel confident as you continue to build as opposed to tear down.”

Easy does it–in life and while you’re dieting and in the process of transforming your body and health for the better.
