The majority of Americans want to lose some amount of weight, whether it be 10 pounds or 200 pounds. The sad truth is. most people who are aiming to start living a healthier life and get rid of excess weight are unsuccessful. This can be attributed to a couple of common mistakes we see people making time and time again.
Common Mistakes That Kill Weight Loss Progress
1. Allowing unhealthy food in your home: We know, we know. Your family doesn’t like the food you are eating nowadays. However, which is more important, the satisfaction of your kid’s taste buds, or their overall health and well being? It may be time to consider getting your family on track with your clean eating plan. More than likely, there will be a healthy alternative to whatever foods they are missing. Also, keeping unhealthy foods in your home will only lead to your demise. Odds are, if there is a container of ice cream in the fridge, you are going to want a scoop or two. Or maybe it’s the chips, you know it’s impossible to have just one. Do not leave these things lingering around your home.
2. Going out to dinner: To be frank, if you are going to be successful on your clean eating / weight loss journey, you are going to have to start cooking. Regardless of how close to healthy the foods at the restaurant may seem, you are inevitably going to end up packing in the calories. Unless of course you plan on ordering a salad every day for the rest of your life. So stock up on fruits and veggies and fresh meats and prepare to become the top chef of your home.
3. Eating dinner in front of the TV: I’m sure you have heard this before, but it is true. If you are eating dinner while you watch TV you are zoning out. This often leads to overeating without thinking about it. During you meals, sit down at a table, turn the TV off, enjoy yourself. You will definitely notice that you eat a lot less when you are paying attention to what you put on your plate.
4. Overeating: Just because it’s healthy, doesn’t mean you can shovel it in. If you overeat, the fact that it was healthy is sort of irrelevant. Make sure you are paying attention to the portions you are giving yourself. A good practice is always leaving the last couple bites on your plate. This way you will not think to yourself, ” I can have one more serving”.
