What Are the Biggest Reasons Diets Fail?
Who has an hour each and every day to meal prep? Not me — and definitely not you. Yet, many diet plans are complicated enough to require this. If that describes your diet, it’s no wonder if you’re failing.
Alternatively, you want to find an approach that gives you basic and easy-to-implement guidelines that help you realize true success with your program.
This plan should not require hours of extra effort each week. In that case, it’s stealing free time that you should use to reward yourself for good behavior. It should work with your lifestyle, not against it. When you find such a plan, it’ll be cakewalk to stick with it.
Chances are you’ve heard that any diet plan you use should follow a long-term approach.
That’s excellent advice.
However, if your diet plan is designed to span months, this can be a motivation killer.
Find a diet with a definite deadline. Two weeks is optimal because that’s how long it takes to form long-term habits. Two weeks is also long enough to see good results, but not short enough to stay motivated.
Anyone willing to lose weight can diet for two weeks. This is foundational to The 2 Week Diet. In many, many cases, the initial transformation is so remarkable, it provides abundant motivation for continued fat burning. Success breeds success.
