4 Free Ways to Re-Commit to Your Diet

Ways to re-commit to your Diet.
1) Re-commit. Take a minute to look back and remember why you decided to diet in the first place. Perhaps it was out of a health concern or perhaps you decided to go into this out of wanting to shed a few pounds. On a blank sheet of paper write down what ever action brought you to start a diet.
Next ask yourself to remember the feeling that brought you to this resolution. What where you feeling when you decided to do this? Where you feeling fear, disappointment, concern? What ever the reason or feeling you had at the time, revisit that and re-focus your efforts.
2) Start a Diet journal. Starting a journal of any sort can be a daunting task but can be a very powerful tool to add to any diet. A journal can help dieters keep track of food by adding accountability. I can think of at least one VERY well known diet plan that uses accountability as it’s prime tool in the battle of the belly fat.
The two things you’ll need in order to make a diet journal work are honesty and regularity. You must be honest enough to write down what you’ve had and you must make entries with regularity in order to make sure you’ve stuck to your.
3) Drink lots of water. You hear it all the time but it’s a fact, water is good for you. Some studies have also shown that people often mistake thirst for hunger. And we all know that hunger is a dieter’s worst enemy. That said, the next time you think you might be hungry, stop for a sec and be sure. If not it may just be a question of easily extinguishing this urge with a glass of water.
I might also add to be sure it’s water. None of this sugar substituted iced tea stuff, just plain old water.
4) Read the nutritional information. Whether you’re on a diet or not, reading the nutritional information is always a good idea. In fact I dare say that a dieter who does not read the nutritional information is akin to a financial expert who refuses to read bank statements. After all how do you know what you’re eating if you don’t even know what’s in it. Burying your head in the sand might make eating that tasty treat easier in the short term but you owe it to yourself and your diet to read what’s in it.
I sure hope this helps, they’re just a couple things I’m trying out myself so I decided to share with all of you as well. Till next time.
Happy Dieting
