There are many things that we know we should do while dieting, but we often forget that there are also things we should NOT be doing.
We all know that we should exercise and eat healthy if we want to lose weight, but what about the things that we should not do? Here are 10 of the biggest diet-killers…
Relying on Crash Diets
Thinking that you have found a shortcut to losing weight is one of the worst things you can do. You might lose plenty of weight within a few days or weeks, but crash diets can often be dangerous to your health. Also, the weight that you lose during a crash diet usually finds its way back very quickly, as crash diets are not a sustainable way of keeping to your target weight.
Like they always say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. While you may think this is an easy way to cut calories, it will more often than not leave you feeling hungry later in the day which then usually leads to overeating.
Not Counting Snack-calories
You might be very diligent when it comes to counting the calories in your meals, but if you forget to count the calories in your snacks and cool drinks, they can easily add up and prevent weight loss.
Not Snacking at All
Whilst mindless snacking can be a big barrier to your weight loss, not snacking at all can have similar affects. Eating healthy snacks between meals can help to keep your metabolism going and can prevent you from overeating at meal-time because the time span between meals gets too long for you.
It is important to realize that low-fat isn’t the same as low-calorie. This is not a free pass to eat an extra helping and you should make sure that you keep track of what you eat carefully.
Drinking Too Many Calories
We often forget that there are calories in cocktails, beers, wine, energy drinks, and cold drinks. These are called “empty calories” as they do not offer any real nutritional value, but ramp up your daily calorie count.
Not Drinking Enough Water
This is an easy mistake to fix, and you should stick to the golden rule of at least 8 glasses of fresh water each day.
Many people think dairy is bad for you because it contains fat, but the fact of the matter is that these are good fats and can actually help you lose weight. Dairy also has many other health benefits as it is high in calcium.
To go, too often
The drive-through can be your downfall. Yes it is convenient. Yes you are tired after work. But is it worth it? Fast-foods are packed full of calories and can send your diet spiraling. If you do catch yourself at the drive through, opt for the healthier options with grilled chicken and salad – no fries! But it is best to avoid it altogether as you might be overcome by the temptation as soon as you see the pretty pictures on the menu!
Setting Ridiculous Goals
Don’t tell yourself you want to lose 10 kilograms in a week – it is never going to happen. You are only going to end up discouraged and disappointed. A realistic goal is about 1 – 2 kilograms per week, and through the right diet and exercise this can be achieved.
Sometimes we just need a bit of extra help to shed those kilograms…
