The Best Diet Plan- I Looked Tighter Through My Waist
Not a Specific Diet But My Way to Avoid the Crash Dieting Mindset
Today we’re gonna talk about the best and worst ways that you can diet to lose weight. When I started I saw there were small changes in shape, I looked tighter through my waist and now I have more definition in my butt. Now to be straight up with you, this is not a specific diet but my way to avoid the crash dieting mindset. We want it to be sustainable for a long period of time- and foods that you choose to eat because you enjoy them. This is great for when you just don’t have the mental space or the energy to actually make good decisions when it comes to food.
The Best Diet Plan to Lose Weight Fast
To make sure we’re all on the same page what is a crash diet is any type of extreme diet that would it be and to make sure we are extra clear here what is the crash dieting mindset the way I see it it’s the mindset that you need results you need the mail and you will do a proper diet that is needed to get there you will do whatever it takes to get these results now I feel like this is particularly relevant because of just how overwhelming this time of year can feel you’ve got your end deadlines you got end of term projects social events there’s so much going on that you might feel like so one thing leads to another and before you know it you fall on our track because you’re already stressed you freaked out. Even though you might know in principle that crash dieting or yo-yo dieting isn’t good for you you justify it by saying okay it’s just gonna be for one week or two weeks or maybe a month whatever a period of time that you decide on you tell yourself I’m just gonna do this so I can get back on track quick or so I can get my odd definition back or so I can like loose time bands before I go on vacation you justify it by saying it’s a temporary thing or by telling yourself that you deserve this punishment for falling off track the problem is though that crash dieting no matter how you set it up no matter how motivated you are it is not a temporary thing and I know this is back when I was in Florida back when I reached my heaviest weight about 20 pounds up from. Here I pulled the same spin I gave myself this same little talk maybe 50 times packing eyes in Florida when I reached my heaviest weight I had just graduated university I had moved away from home and I was putting in 12 14 hour days trying to figure out the idol team thing okay Ana at the time a very common meal for me was a pint of Ben & Jerry’s so I dumped that into a big bowl and then I would top that with chocolate shell and then on top of all that I’d get those fancy sprinkles from Target like the thicker ones and I’d put those on top of that it was real tasty but I remember I would be sitting on the couch in front of the TV and I would be feeling bloated I’d be feeling disgusted with myself and I’d have this little pet table this little pet talk with myself on the regular take okay at the time to cut the crap time to get back on track we’re gonna crank up the cardio cut back on the calories just so we can get out of this dark place I don’t have to talk with myself on that couch and at that time when I was sitting on the couch after eating all that I would have all the motivation in the world I’d have all the motivation because I felt crappy I could literally feel the consequences of not treating my body right and I’d have all the motivation for that day that next day in the next day but like clockwork come the third day I would start feeling tired I’m gonna guess the reason for this was by the top by that time. I’d burned through that big meal I had I was working out a lot and I wasn’t giving myself enough food based on how much I was working out so it makes sense that I’d start feeling tired I start feeling tired I’d start feeling discouraged because I didn’t get abs overnight and lo and behold I would go right back to food I would go right back to feeling sorry for myself eating ben & jerry’s on the couch even if you have the best of intentions the best motivation stirring your whatever your reasons are either you’re not gonna make it till the end and you’re gonna rebound even worse or you are gonna make it to the end of the crash diet but then you’re not gonna be able to sustain the actions that got you there so you won’t be able to keep your results right so it’s kind of a lose-lose situation I get that it’s easier to think in all or nothing’ terms either you’re 100% on track or you’re a hundred percent off track but you don’t makes a whole lot more sense when you actually recognize that there is a pattern here it makes a whole lot more sense to take smaller more gradual steps towards that diet or that lifestyle that you want to maintain instead of thinking of your diet as this switch that’s either on or off if you try shifting your. Mindset to think of it as a spectrum as something that you can make smaller gradual improvements with that is gonna make your life so much easier a story I hear all the time is that somebody will start a diet on Monday because everybody it’s on Monday and then come Tuesday morning they’ll have a cookie and because they see this as some sort of monumental screw-up they’re just gonna throw it the rest of the day there now a hundred percent off-track in their minds and so one cookie will turn into three will turn into a burger for lunch will turn into a full day bender and then at that point you tell yourself okay well I’m so off track I may as well just start my diet next Monday so to make sure I’m bringing this full circle what is one small change you could make today as I’m like literally after watching this video that would be just a little bit better than what you’re currently doing all right could you maybe have two cookies instead of three could you have diet soda instead of regular soda could you skip the rice on your burrito at Chipotle like what’s what’s one small change I want you to comment this what is one small change that you could make because I’m telling you right now little changes like this will add up little changes are gonna be that much easier to make it a part of your daily routine they’re not gonna uproot your entire lifestyle they’re gonna be that much easier to do consistently and it’s those things you can actually do consistently and sustained they’re gonna get you results if you want proof that this works here’s my personal transformation pictures. Even though there wasn’t much change between the pictures there were small changes in shape I look tighter through my waist I have more definition in my butt side crease area more shape on my arms the difference between this and the crash diets I did in Florida is that I’m gonna be able to keep these results while keeping my quality of life you can’t say that for a lot of crash diets so you’ve made it this far if you made it through my rant first of all congratulations we have patients that’s the first thing that you need for this school of diet situation and secondly if you’re ready to stop it with a crash diets that I would love for you to take the transformation quiz that I have linked down below there I’m gonna ask you about your body type your starting point your goals and give you specific advice for what I recommend you focus on first you don’t have to do this overnight you just have to get started and that’s what this quiz is designed to help you to do get started point you in the right direction and start making some small gradual shifts in what you’re doing alright I hope you’ve done this video helpful I hope that I maybe changed your mind on star another crazy diet and I hope to see you in my next video.
