Tips For Losing Weight That Actually Work

Reject Short-term Remedies and Embrace the Long View

You won't always notice the results if you can't maintain a particular diet. Consider tiny modifications you can make to your nutrition, exercise, stress, or sleep. Make sure that you can keep up week after week, month after month, and year after year rather than making big changes that have drastic effects.  

At most meals, fill half of your plate with veggies. Eat every three to four hours. Take 10,000 steps per day. Strength train twice a week. Simply avoid tackling it all at once.

A registered dietitian advises clients who feel dejected and frustrated about their past failures to follow diet plans to reframe their thoughts  from "I lack willpower, diets rob me of all my enjoyment in life, and I simply lack the ability to maintain a diet,” to "Getting healthy requires skill power, not willpower. I can succeed if I pay attention to my body and make plans in advance." Hence, it’s all just embracing the long view.  

Quit Uttering the Phrase “Screw It, I’ll Start Again Monday."

Have you ever gone on a Friday night emotional eating binge and then told yourself the weekend was wrecked and you would have to start over Monday? This is the exact kind of self-defeating speech that perpetuates the cycle of overeating followed by restriction.

There are registered dieticians who offer clients "Helpful Thought Switches" to reframe unfavorable attitudes. Some advise telling yourself things like, "I will be happier now if I make choices I'll be proud of now," "Overeating doesn't actually feel good," or "I choose myself, right now.”

So that you can use them when you're feeling defeated, write down these empowering phrases. And keep in mind that you are not required to "start again" on Monday. Every meal is a fresh opportunity to modify something little, and little changes over time add up.

Stop Thinking That Everything or Nothing Matters

Being in an all-or-nothing mindset leads to the attitude of "starting over Monday." You are either on a diet or not, following a plan or not following one, keeping track of your meals and being "good" at it or not keeping track and indulging in whatever you choose. Instead of creating equilibrium, this causes eating and emotional stress.  

To guide you in breaking the all or nothing mentality, concentrate on taking a calm and steady approach to changing one habit at a time. And accept that it's a shift in lifestyle rather than a diet. When you're on a diet, you're eager for it to be done, but bear in mind that in order to sustain the results permanently, you have to eat this way for the rest of your life.

Give Up Categorizing Food as “Good” or “Bad”

You cannot lose weight permanently if you think of your food as "good" or "bad" and feel guilty when you consume particular foods, such as carbohydrates or sweets. You don't need to give up any food or food group in order to successfully lose weight, even though some foods are better for our health than others.  

In fact, the more you perceive these food and beverages as being "bad," the more it backfires and usually promotes overeating when it is there.
