Contrary to popular belief, going on a diet doesn’t mean starving until you reach your weight goal. On the other hand, going on a diet doesn’t mean stopping until you reach your fitness goal.
You see, going on a diet means eating the right kind of food rather than eating less. You also see, going on a diet means doing the right kind of activities rather than doing more.
That being said, remember these when going on a diet:
When going on a diet, time matters – just like when building new habits (e.g. eating like a king during breakfast, eating like a prince during lunch, and eating like a beggar during supper) or when starting new habits (e.g. running outside for 30 minutes, doing chores for an hour, and playing badminton for 2 hours). Time also matters when it comes to cooking healthier food (ex. when following the instructions on the cookbook), as well as doing better activities (ex. when following the instructions on the manual.
When going on a diet, effort also matters – just like when starting new habits for that energizing perk (e.g. eating more vegetable-based food or drinking more fruit-based beverages) or when building new habits for that enlivening perk (e.g. climbing up and down the stairs or pushing up and down the floor). Effort also matters when it comes to food (ex. assuring your condition with the right kind of food), as well as activities (ex. improving your condition with the right kind of activity).
Always remember, you don’t have to starve just to reach your desired goal – or more specifically, your weight goal. You also don’t have to stop just to reach your desired goal – or more specifically, your fitness goal.
