What About Diets:

By: doclind

Diet is the routine of what you eat. Nutrition is the value of what you eat.

You can have a diet full of junk; it is still called a diet. Not a good one, but a diet nonetheless. Your diet is a general term you use that may be filled with anything and can do good things to you or bad things. It is a category, a term used to define a list of food that you enjoy. Diet does not mean weight loss necessarily. A diet is anything you eat. We call it your "diet" referring to the food you eat.

Food is the only thing that can provide nutrition to your body. Nutrition varies in quality. You can have a an unhealthy diet or a very healthy diet.

There is a lot of information about diets -- some good, some okay, and some not even worth spending a moment on. How is anyone supposed to know what to do?

Some people spend a lifetime on the subject, and maybe you should, there are only a few points you really should know. Well-meaning people try to make the rules of diet fit their style of life and that becomes a problem.

What About Diet Food

I know youíd like to buy some kind of diet food and make it work to loose weight for the long-term: it isnít going to happen! It is not possible. Oh, you can loose weight without much thought or direction. You already know what to do.

Your challenge is to live a healthy lifestyle while eating packaged diet food. This isn't going to happen unless you make your own diet food.

Commercial diet food is devoid of vitamins and nutrients and is sold at exuberant prices for your convenience because you work too hard. But if you donít buy packaged food when you come home you work even harder trying to find something to put together for dinner while trying to satisfy finicky eaters who live in your house.

I have great news for you! You can prepare your own diet food! Yes, it is possible and there are several good reasons to do this. The benefits of preparing your own diet food:

Taste better than what is soaked in food additives and chemicals
Is more satisfying than reading the ingredient in packaged food
Will give you satisfaction in your cooking talents

It takes time and preparation but isnít it worth the effort? The food you eat goes into your body and makes you healthy or unhealthy.

Weight Loss for the Weak of Mind

The motivation you have is one of the most important parts to diet and weight loss.

Here are just a few motivation tips to keep you on track.

Only weigh yourself every now and then. Think long term about this project. This is a lifestyle change so go easy on yourself. If you look at a scale every week, you know whether you need to make changes or not. Keep a picture of the heavier version of yourself in plain sight. This image will remind you of everything you need to loose weight and will keep you from going back into old habits. It will also remind you of how far you have come and how much better you will look.

Visualize your new you everyday. Visualize about how you want yourself to look. If you have achieved your new goals then just imagine yourself doing some new things, in your new body.

Make new goals farther and higher. When you reach your ideal weight, then you should set some new goals that will push you further into health. As soon as you don't, you will likely fall back into old habits. It is easy to slip back into old habits so work to achieve something new. For example when you have reached your ideal weight, then set a goal to increase your workout. Think about yourself in perfect health, like you never imagined you could. Look high and far, make your goal and then reach it. Nothing will keep you more motivated then setting and achieving your new goals.

Find a manual about food, diet, and weight loss. There's nothing like a program of how to eat that will motivate you.

Since youíve read this far I might as well let you in on a secret. Eating correctly is easy. The difficult part is setting your rules. When you set your rules you are less likely to fail. Sure, you will stumble. But donít get down on yourself. On the other hand youíve got to keep going. You canít give up because youíve messed up a day or weekís diet.

One major problem is gaining confidence in yourself to trust what you decide about your food rules. You are the only one that can make them, only you can follow them, only you can break them, and only you can re-set them.
