Is there an easy weight loss plan? On the surface, one would have to say that such is not the case and that the term should be regarded as an oxymoron. America is crippled with an obesity problem that despite the plethora or diet plans present on the market today, the number of people in America that are obese continues to increase at an exponential rate. However, there are people who were once morbidly overweight but have now lost the extra weight to such a degree, that they can no longer be recognized by those who knew the individual when he or she was overweight. How is that possible? Why do some people fail with their diets and other succeed? This is a question that will help us to realize if there are indeed, any such “easy” weight loss plans.
An easy weight loss plan, or rather an easier weight loss plan, is one that is built upon a solid and realistic foundation.. I speak from experience when I say that many diets fail when at the onset of the diet, the dieter creates lofty and unrealistic goals which are usually unattainable. The goals are not met and the dieter quits as he or she feels as though the diet or even themselves are the ones to blame. However, it is usually the former and not the latter that is really to blame. Do some people have more desire and will power than others? This is most certainly the case. However, a diet that is based upon realistic and solid footing will be the diets that help the dieter to help go the distance.
Starting a weight loss plan that increases in its degree of difficulty is very important. There are two main reasons for this. A diet plan which starts out with easy to complete tasks helps to give confidence in what he or she is trying to accomplish. How many people would continue on their journey, when on the first day, everything that could go wrong, did go wrong, not because of the dieter, but because of the unrealistic goals that were set before the diet began? Most people and diets would fall by the waste side and yet another “failed diet” would have come to fruition and the further eroding of the dieters’ confidence would soon follow.
Your diet must be one that builds on the confidence and gains or previous steps. As the goals are met, the future goals are increased in difficulty but with the confidence that the dieter now possesses, the steeper climb serves as a source of motivation and a challenge rather the perception that it is an impossible task and one that need not even be tried. An easy weight loss plan is one that continues to build on the success of the previous step. Only then will the dieter begin to see an exponential increase in the degree of his or her successes and the speed in which they race towards their ultimate goal of sustained weight loss and the ability to live a truly healthy lifestyle.
