Quick Weight Loss Tip - #12: A One Diet Woman
Written by Diet Bites
Bouncing around popular diets that just don't work? We've got tips to get you back on track....
Going from one diet to the next like a pollinating bee can lead to Yo-Yo Dieting. At this stage, the dieter is locked in Diet Limbo, constantly trying to pry the unwanted weight off.
Routines, Daily Life Patterns & Weight Loss
As humans, we tend to get into a routine that words best for us - and at times, we're even forced into a routine due to the basics of survival.
For example, very few of us enjoy what we do for a living. We'd much rather stay at home - or go somewhere fun than have to drag ourselves off to work. Every morning we're greeted by the whine of our alarm clock, ordering us to get out of bed.
But on our day off, we rarely set the alarm clock - and we enjoy sleeping in and getting up when the mood suits our fancy. It feels great to do what we want to do, whenever we want to do it, doesn't it?
The downside to sleeping in is that nothing is ever free. We pay the price the following morning when that blasted alarm clock is warning us to rise and shine. And because we slept in the following morning, it's even harder getting up than normal. Oh those crummy Mondays...
The same situation is true regarding our sleeping patterns. Most of us tend to go to bed at a certain time of the day. If our sleep is fitful or we have difficulty falling to sleep or if we wait too long to get into bed - we slip out of our normal routine and pay the price the following day - feeling as lousy as a duck out of water.
When it comes to losing weight, the dieter will likely experience a higher rate of success by sticking to a daily routine or pattern. Those bumps and unfamiliar situations can throw even the best of dieters totally off track.
Think about it....
When we wake up to start our day, we have a pattern where breakfast is concerned. If we're used to eating breakfast (and you should) and we miss the meal, we've upset our pattern. By the time that lunch arrives we'll more likely than not - be famished and we'll eat far more than we should. And once we feel like we have blown our diet for the day, we may continue bingeing or grazing throughout the remainder of the day. At times, that's enough to put a total stop to a weight loss plan.
These Yo-Yo diets that we discussed at the beginning of this article are related to a disruption in patterns. Just as we jump about and try to remedy the skipped breakfast - once the dieter gets off their weight loss plan they have upset the pattern. They must begin all over again. And because the last diet failed - they more often than not blame the diet plan they used rather than the fact that they didn't stay true to the routine or dieting schedule.
If the next plan fails and results in a dead diet, it may take a while for the individual to have thoughts about weight loss.
Another negative aspect about yo-yoing is that the body struggles to find solid ground - as it's been dislodged from its normal routine. Where the body is concerned, it processes things very meticulously and precisely. Even that tiny scratch on your finger takes days to mend. Think about how challenging it must be for the body where balancing energy is concerned. Losing weight indeed takes time.
And it can be best accomplished with a diet plan that remains on track - one that the dieter will stick with until all the unwanted pounds are gone.
In Summary: Choose thy diet plan wisely and stick to the diet plan until all the unwanted weight is gone.
