5 Tips On How To Stay Motivated On A Diet

When you begin a diet, in most cases you will be highly motivated and excited to be taking a healthier route. But as time goes by, you may feel that you are getting tired of the diet or just want to give up altogether. You can motivate yourself when your excitement has faded and here are some suggestions to keep you going.
Be Accountable To Someone
It can be your personal trainer, your spouse, a friend or someone who is on diet with you. When you are accountable to someone it is easier to stick with your diet. Sometimes it is okay to take a break for a short while such as a day or a weekend. Eat the foods you are craving, in moderation then go back to your diet. This will also help you stay motivated for longer.
Take Photos Of Yourself Looking Slimmer
Take photos constantly of your weight loss so that you see how much you have lost weight so that you stay on it. Try and remember how you felt before with extra weight, probably tired and lethargic and how you feel now. You can keep the photos in a place where you can easily see them so you can see the results of your diet which will help you stay motivated.
Try Out New Recipes
Try new recipes and healthy foods all the time so that you have a lot of choice. If you are on diet with someone else or a group of people, you can organize get together where you try out new recipes so it is fun and will give you a wide variety of foods to eat.
Set Realistic Goals
It is important that you set goals that realistic so that you don't set yourself up for failure. If you are getting a diet plan from somewhere else like the internet or a book, go through it carefully and take note of what is allowed and what you may have in small quantities and what is forbidden. Ensure that you tailor it so that it is realistic for you. For example, if you love chocolate, coffee, wine and soda and the diet restricts the intake of all these, you may decide to cut back on the sodas and wine and leave the coffee and chocolate. As time goes by, you can reduce your coffee and chocolate intake so that you don't feel so deprived like you are being punished which can seriously de-motivate you.
Reward Yourself
You can reward yourself with a nice piece of clothing you have been eyeing, or a luxurious set of bubble baths or even ticket to a concert that you have been looking out for. It is easier to do something when you have a reward to look forward to. You can set a goal so that by a set time, if you will have lost a certain amount of weight you can get the reward. The reward should be special enough so that you are motivated.
