The number one key factor in the success of a new diet is whether or not you can keep the diet consistent. You may find plenty of diets that help you lose weight, but you are going to fail 100% of the time that you cannot sustain your diet. Your success really depends on your ability to sustain your diet – potentially for the rest of your life. If you don’t think that you can possibly continue your diet for many many years without any breaks, it is probably not the right diet for you. It is best to do some searching and find something that you can sustain.
There are plenty of diets out there, from low carb to raw food. All are supposed to help you lose pounds and keep them off. Regardless of what your specific diet is, the basic premise of weight loss is that you are spending more energy than you are taking in. You should be getting daily exercise in conjunction with choosing healthy meals and cutting out any empty calories (such as soda, cookies, chips, etc.). Weight will slowly start to come off if you adjust your eating and exercise habits. Eventually, you will get down to the weight that you want to be, and as long as you keep your diet and exercise routines going, you will stay at a healthy weight for a long time to come.
The one problem that most people encounter is trying to find healthy diet food that they can continue to eat for sustained periods of time. Many people find one or two different healthy meals that they enjoy, but have difficult creating any sort of variety. They consistently eat the same few health food options, but eventually they get sick of eating the same things over and over again. A good idea is to have an assortment of healthy diet food options so that you will get some variety in your diet and be able to continue your diet for much longer than you had imagined.
If you are trying to find a variety of healthy diet food, you have a few options that may help you find what you are looking for:
One idea is to cook everything yourself. The problem with this is that it takes a lot of time to cook yourself a meal every time you want to eat. Also, having all the ingredients might not be easy or economical (products going bad before you finish them). If you do want to cook, you can do what my dad does: batch. Go ahead and cook yourself an entire week’s worth of meals in one day. Put them in some containers, freeze everything and then heat and serve when you want to eat.
Another option is to go to the grocery store and start picking healthy pre-packaged diet meals. There should be a ton of options in your frozen food section. The only problem is that it can be expensive, you really have no idea what you are getting, and you don’t even know where to begin.
Finally, my favorite option is to order all your diet food online and have it delivered to your front door. You can do this for relatively inexpensive, and they will send you literally everything that you need to eat for that month. Just heat and serve when you need to eat. This service takes all the guess work out of picking your healthy diet food.
Always keep in mind that sustainability is the key to success for any diet. Find something that works for your taste buds, schedule and wallet.
