Diet: It Doesn’t Have to Be Boring

Whenever you hear the word diet, you probably think of hunger, pains and boring food.

Face it. Drinking a protein shake and counting calories is just not fun.

Is it possible to lose weight, eat healthy, and enjoy the whole process?

Of course it is. It just takes some imagination.

Before you even begin the process of shaping up your body and your diet, you need to change your views on eating.

Part of the problem with diets is that they fail. But if we take the word “diet” and change its meaning in our minds, we can put a positive spin on the idea. Don’t think of diet as starvation or hunger. Instead, change the definition to mean healthy eating habits. You need food to live. That’s not a sin. Traditional diets are sinful because they deprive you of nutrition.

Okay. Let’s get started. To succeed in this process, you have to think about the reasons you want to change your life. It can’t just be about weight loss. You have to think about your health as well. Write down your reasons for eating healthy in a notebook, sign it and date it. You have just made a commitment to yourself to live better.

Now, you have to plan how to eat.

Instead of grabbing the first thing you see in the refrigerator or stopping at the fast food window, brown bag it for lunch. Make a shopping list that includes foods you like that are healthy. Throw in healthy salad dressings and other condiments and spices to liven up the flavor.

Finally, go shopping and get started.
