So, diet resolution week is January 1 – 7th. Indeed, committing to any type of diet is a lot of work. However, each year many individuals begin the New Year to exercise more and diet. But, how many don’t stick to the plan. So, today’s post will help you get started on a plan to success for a healthy year.
Diet Resolution Tips
In the first place, you have decided to begin the year with changing your diet. Incidentally, the best way to start a diet is to set a goal. In the same way, it is important to give yourself some time to adjust to different food choices.
When you start a diet, there are many programs available. Visit my Best Healthy Weight Loss Diets post to read about some of the different plans. Since I was a prior member of Weight Watchers, I was able to learn a lot about this diet.
In fact, one positive key about this diet is you can attend weekly meetings and share your stories with others. Moreover, the Weight Watcher staff tells you not to give up. For instance, if you gain a pound or two, don’t give up. To summarize, the key to this diet is to remember it is a lifestyle change.
Of course, the most important part of any diet is to learn the process of eliminating bad food. For me, I have found the best diet is a combination of low-carbs and good fats, such as cheese, meat and protein.
No doubt, committing to a diet is a lot of work. But, it doesn’t have to be. By making a few small changes in our every day food choices, we can be on the road to success. Although you may have family and friends wanting you to try something; it is important to say “No”. As they continue to hear the word no, they will know you are serious about making changes in your diet.
Another important part of changing your food choices is to alter your food. No one wants to eat the same type of food over and over again. Variety is the spice of life. With this in mind, try some new healthy recipes. In my opinion, one of the healthiest and fun ways to lose weight is to eat different vegetables daily.

Diet Resolution Rewards and Affirmations
As you meet your goals, give yourself a reward. For example, buy something you thought wouldn’t look good on you and now does.
In essence, it is important to remind yourself that you can achieve whatever results you put your mind to. It is important to realize you’re in control. As I always say, slow and steady wins the race. So, take your time and stay on track. If you gain a few pounds or slack off, don’t give up.
No matter what diet you choose, it is important to incorporate exercise into your life. With that, I’m off to my first class of Salsa Dancing tonight with my Hubby and another couple.
As always, I welcome your comments.
