🎉 Tired of dieting roller coasters, quick fixes, and the never-ending cycle of weight loss attempts? You’re not alone! But guess what? There’s a better way, and it doesn’t involve magic tricks or diet industry shenanigans. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll walk you through the journey of achieving permanent weight loss, step by step, with a dash of humour and a lot of practical advice. 💪
Why Most Diets Fail (Spoiler Alert: It’s Not Your Fault) 🙅♂️
Let’s get this straight from the get-go: It’s not you; it’s the diet industry. The dieting game is rigged to keep you in a perpetual state of fear and failure. Why? Because it’s big business, and they thrive on your struggles. But fear not, we’re here to help you break free from this cycle!
Step 0: Define Your Destination 🗺️
Before we embark on this journey, ask yourself: What do you truly want? Permanent weight loss requires a clear destination. Create a flight plan that breaks your goal into manageable skills and actionable daily practices. (Hint: We’ll show you how to get your personalised flight plan later in the article.)
Next Step: Determine your specific goals and create a flight plan that aligns with them. Ready to take the first step?
Step 1: Magic Tricks for Quick Wins ✨
Quick fixes can be tempting, especially for short-term goals like weddings or vacations. While we often advise against them, let’s acknowledge that they can serve a purpose. They can provide that initial burst of motivation and accomplishment. The key is to use them wisely and not rely on them forever.
The Magic Tricks
- Calorie Counting: Creating a substantial calorie deficit can lead to quick results. Apps and trackers can help you keep tabs on your intake.
- Carb Cutting: Reducing your carbohydrate intake, especially refined carbs, can lead to a swift drop in water weight.
- Intense Exercise “Bootcamp”: Joining an intense exercise program can kickstart your fitness journey. These high-energy workouts can be exhilarating.
- Alcohol and Liquid Calorie Elimination: Cutting out alcohol and calorie-laden drinks can lead to rapid calorie savings.
- Intermittent Fasting: Short-term fasting patterns can result in quick weight loss, primarily through calorie restriction.
But remember, these are like magic tricks – impressive but not sustainable. They can help build momentum and motivation, but they shouldn’t be your long-term strategy.
Step 2: Building the Skill of Change 🧰
After the initial magic tricks, it’s time to transition into building the skill of change. While those quick wins are motivating, they aren’t meant to last. Sustainability is the name of the game.
Begin with a 5-minute action that supports your goal. It might be as simple as a daily walk or choosing a healthy snack over an unhealthy one. The key is to make it easy and doable.
Step 3: Structure Your Nutrition 🥗
Say goodbye to endless snacking and hello to structured meals. Building satiety and experiential satisfaction is the name of the game.
Meals, Not Snacks
Shift your eating habits towards regular meals rather than continuous snacking. This can help regulate your calorie intake and reduce mindless munching.
Step 4: Savor Each Bite 🍽️
Eating slowly has a multitude of benefits: better food choices, improved digestion, and increased satisfaction. Plus, it’s a fabulous excuse to relish your meal.
Step 5: Wait for Hunger, Stop at 80% Full 🕒
Avoid those roller coaster rides of extreme hunger followed by overindulgence. Listen to your body and stop when you’re satisfied, not stuffed.
Step 6: Add Nutrition to Your Plate 🥦
Ask yourself, “Where are the protein, fat, carbs, veggies, and hydration?” Focus on whole foods to fuel your journey.
Step 7: Gradually Increase Exercise 🏋️
Going from zero to hero in a workout regime isn’t sustainable. Gradually work your way up to 5 hours of exercise per week.
Step 8: Embrace Sleep, Stress, and Recovery 😴
Step 9: Shape Your Environment 🌟
Make good choices easy by curating your social and physical environments. Set yourself up for success!
Step 10: Smart Supplementation 🌿
Once you’ve nailed the basics, consider adding essential supplements like a multivitamin, omega-3, and extra protein to support your journey.
Step 11: Keep the Goal the Goal 🎯
If old habits sneak back in, focus on that 5-minute action and rebuild from there. Keep your eyes on the prize!
Step 12: Embrace the Process 🔄
Permanent weight loss isn’t a destination; it’s a journey. Focus on the daily process rather than obsessing over the end goal.
