3 Diet Hacks When You Can’t Commit To Dieting
Hello, my name is Sharita and I have commitment issues – with dieting. I think it goes back to my inner rebel, and I just don’t like being told what I cannot have! Whatever my reason, I know that I am not alone in this boat of non-commital dieters. For us, we want to eat clean, lose weight and look good in jeans, but going cold turkey and cutting out all bad foods is just not the answer. Instead, we have to trick ourselves into cleaning up our eating habits.
I’ve come up with a list of three small diet hacks that will help to tweak the way you eat. You can try these individually or all at once. I suggest that you introduce one hack into your diet every 2 or 3 weeks before introducing the next. This way, you can get used to the new eating style and you won’t be overwhelmed with restrictions. Keep reading to find out what works best for you!
1. Track Your Meals
While this step doesn’t directly affect what you put on your fork, it will make a huge difference in your food consumption if you stick to it. For me, food tracking is the most difficult hack just because I tend to forget to log my food. But setting up reminders and using simple apps makes this a lot less painful. Apps like MyFitnessPal have a huge database of foods so you don’t have to count calories or anything. You plug in your food and it does the rest. The latest versions of this app will even remind you to log your food throughout the day!
When you stick with it, you’ll start to hold yourself accountable. Just the feeling alone of logging “2 slices of cheesecake and 1 large milkshake” in one day will make you step up your eating on the next day, trust me…
