Weight loss is a slow and steady process. You need to have an unshakable lifting and dieting ethic. Just like Rome wasn’t built in a day, your diet too won’t show results in a week. Be wise, there’s a thin line between losing weight and becoming skinny. Most people get it wrong.
Beware if you are making any of these 5 stupid mistakes.
1. Choosing A Diet Regime Based Heavily On Your Food Choices
Listen, a good body is something that’s hard earned and unless you don’t let go of ‘your flawed food’ choices, you will never be able to earn it. An effective diet will mostly not have what you love to eat. Deal with it! You can either give in to your urges or have a commendable physique and fitness ethic.
2. Efforts To Follow A Diet Are Half-Assed!
So you have a diet in place. Great! Don’t half-ass your efforts now. If the diet doesn’t allow you to cheat, then don’t. If you are fat or weak-willed, cheat days are not for you. If you aren’t dedicated, don’t blame your diet!
3. Jumping From One Diet To Another Like You Know It All
Your routine is shit. If it was effective, you wouldn’t be reading this article. Let a coach decide your diet; your duty is to stick to it. Don’t apply your brains. The body takes time to adapt to a diet, give it that space.
4. You Are Following A Diet That Worked For Your Bro
One diet never fits all. If at all it does something, it’s making you fat. Analyze your physique, know which areas you need to work on and what all you need to do. Look at your lifestyle and then design a diet for yourself. Just because your bro lost weight or gained muscle doesn’t mean you will too.
5. Your Diet Isn’t In Sync With Your Workout
Whatever you dunk in, needs to be put to work during your workout. If you are on a high cal diet for muscle gain and don’t work out as hard as you eat, then you’ll only get fat. If you eat less, you’ll lose muscle mass. Have your diet planned around your workout and the goal you are looking to achieve.
