It’s the new year, you’re excited to bring you weight loss resolutions to life and elevate your se3y👙
Here are 4 mistakes that will keep you from getting frustrated and save you a lot of time and energy
1. Doing too much too fast – You plan to go to the gym 5 days a week, cut off carbs, intermittent fasting….and…and…the list of changes goes on and on. Slow down. The more the number of changes you make, the higher the chance that you will not succeed. Pareto’s 80/20 principle holds true – 80% of your results will come from 20% action. All you need to do is change 1 or 2 things and execute consistently. Doing too much too fast can lead to exhaustion and demotivation when results don’t happen.. Less is indeed more
2. Not eating enough can be counterproductive and go against your goal. Weight loss happens when you eat the right foods, in the right portions, at the right time, while providing adequate nourishment and creating a caloric deficit
3. Short term thinking – assuming that losing weight is a one time thing and that once goal is achieved you can go back to old habits. Successful weight loss requires a lifestyle change, hence method used needs to be sustainable.
4. Setting unrealistic goals – Rome wasn’t built in a day just as you didn’t gain weight overnight. Find a sustainable solution that delivers results and be patient.
