We all know how to start a diet, Transitioning off of a diet is tougher. Maybe even more how to start lots of diets but never really sure how to transition off of a diet. I think that this is something that is really important as you don’t want to spoil all those great effects of losing be gaining it back again.
Often people will go on a diet and just follow blindly as long as it works and then afterwards with no plan will just go back to old habits and lose that great momentum and therefore gain the back.
Your body is not built for wild swings and I really would rather see people do one diet, lose weight, and then use good habits to continue with a healhty and happy life without having to look back. More often than not though people will becomeexperts at how to “game” diets, losing and then gaining it back.
Here are some things that you should look at while on your diet to make sure you are successful afterwards
Transitioning off of a diet Tips
1. Diets are supposed to be temporary, life is not – When you are on a diet you will pick up good habits and lose weight. After you have lost the you will increase your eating to that correct amount where you will not lose ro gain over a month but instead keep in a small range. Think about what is keeping your dropping, the food, the exercise? What are you going to continue afterwards.
2. Love the exercise, whatever it is – All diets need some kind of exercise. Do that exercise with everything you’ve got and if you can’t find something you love to do for exercise. Is it running, spinning, ballroom dancing, walking with friends? You can always find something that YOU find fun to do and keep it up consistently after the diet.
3. Plan your eating. Take responsibility – Sometimes I find people blame the diet saying that the diet made it easy and then afterwards they do not know how to eat. Transitioning off of a diet by figuring out what your body is doing and become a bit of a nutrition scientist knowing what makes you bloated, what makes you gain , what foods hurt your energy levels. Everyone is a bit different and only you know what affects you the most.
4. Plan your Meals – After a diet is over it is easy to look back and just let yourself gain by easing off the diet. Transitioning off of a diet and “Easing” is much easier if you plan your eating, exercising and entertainment for the week ahead of time. Be strict after you are off the diet so that you can give yourself a fighting chance of integrating those great new habits.
