Losing weight is hard, nobody ever said it wasn’t. You get hungry when you diet and you get hungry when you work out, and you get incredibly
hungry when you do both. It is easy to justify eating anything when you feel like you are starving, you worked out and you have been eating healthy so you think it’s ok to grab that bag of chips or cookies and a soda… It’s not. Giving in to all of those cravings will not only keep you from making progress but they will set you back after all the hard work you have been putting in. We pt together five rules to help keep you one step ahead of your appetite.
Rule #1 – Set realistic goals. Don’t tell yourself you aren’t going to eat any sweets for a year. Pick a goal that you know you can accomplish. Once you hit that mark start over and challenge yourself to go just a bit longer. This lets you feel successful and it gives you the time to notice the benefits eating healthy has on your body.
