Nothing can hinder your weight loss goals, you’re getting results, you’re happy with it and then one day pooofff! All is gone! We don’t know what happened!
We often get anxious when these type of demotivations start to linger. While the community blog tries its best to provide some tips on how to handle hard situations and minimized the damage on our metabolism, we can’t deny the fact that there are still some of our challenged fast metabolism dieters who fall off the wagon from the diet. Either they forgot their meal map and switched the phase-specific foods, they cheated and ate some non phase-specific foods, or they indulge to foods from parties and events and never turned back.
As you fell off from the weight loss wagon, it is completely natural to feel frustrated. It is our immediate reaction if e didn’t reached our goal. But to continue dwelling in our frustrations and self-pity for a long period of time is not a good idea. We’ve prepared these tips to help you gather up the courage again and get back on track! We cannot afford you to give up now!
- Don’t Push Yourself too Hard
This is the most important and number 1 tip you always need to remember. You need to recognize that as a human being, you are bound to make some mistakes. The most important thing you need to remember is you acknowledge your own mistake and you know how to fix them.
So if you make a mistake, you cheated, you slipped off, just forget about it and move on. Don’t panic! That’s fine! You just need to move forward and get back on track to your next meal, snack, or phase. Don’t let yourself get stuck up in depression.
- Set Short, Achievable Goals
Remind yourself that losing weight cannot be done in just one go. It needs commitment, patience and determination to succeed. Losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle needs long term, even lifetime commitment.
Having a goal of losing 100 pound in just a month just won’t do. You will only just pressure yourself in achieving it, and in turn wrecks your diet in the process. Instead, learn how to take baby steps. Set smaller, achievable steps and milestones. You can have 20 pounds set as an initial weight loss goal for a month, or about 5 pounds loss weight goal in a week. That way you won’t feel pressured in losing weight and concentrate on achieving it. In the long run, you won’t noticed you already reached your overall weigh loss goal! Because you’re focus on relishing the moment and enjoying the foods you eat
- Understand your Craving
When you were prone to eat non phase-specific foods, understand the reason why you did it. Are you feeling frustrated, angry, or tired that triggered your cravings? Understand why you’re bound to crave. Here are the two interesting topics you can read to go more in depth about craving: physical craving and emotional eating.
- Start Over Again
If you really felt guilty in continuing up your fast metabolism diet schedule, then you always have the option to restart. Starting over again can help you identify your mistakes back, why you did it, and provide some solution so that you won’t commit these mistakes again the next time you reboot.
Don’t get discouraged now! You’ve gone this far! Don’t let our efforts go in vain! Let’s stick to the plan and keep moving forward towards a healthier lifestyle!
