Effective Healthy Meals For Weight Loss To Help Overcome Obstacles
All too often, you will hear through a family member or a friend about yet another failed weight loss program – perhaps you have also endured similar personal disappointment on one or more occasions. Despite the best intentions to make meals and snacks more healthy in content, and to incorporate these foods into some custom diet plans that advertise ‘proven results’, dieter after dieter just cannot seem to attain that same degree of guaranteed weight loss success.
There are several factors that can be exceedingly frustrating for those who want or need better weight control and which often impede the success of their weight loss efforts:
- Commitment requirements
- Self-discipline and support
- Work and personal schedules
- Methods of food preparation
- Higher costs for healthy meals
Here is a list of the most common reasons why weight loss programs usually fail:
- Too restrictive or regimented – these diets often deprive people of their favourite foods and are therefore hard to maintain and may ultimately fail due to binge eating
- Just a temporary measure to reach a specific goal – weight loss programs that serve a finite purpose (to fit into your bridal gown or to wear a favourite bathing suit on a beach in the Caribbean) are not permanent changes in lifestyle or eating habits
- Results are not seen fast enough – some people expect to see weight loss right away and they abandon their diet after just a few days if no change is evident
- Consumption of healthy meals is poorly timed – skipping meals or eating at odd hours (even if meals/snacks are deemed as healthy) can affect proper metabolism
- Poor sleeping patterns/lack of adequate sleep – can create an imbalance in hormone levels, notably those that stimulate appetite
- Inappropriate calorie consumption – lack of attention to serving sizes (at home) and published nutrition guides (for restaurants or fast food outlets) can easily lead to calorie intake that exceeds daily/dietary limits
- Reliance on dieting only – dieting on its own without some degree of exercise can actually slow your rate of metabolism and cause the body to burn fewer calories and store more fat
- Social pressure/lack of support – family and friends who are not dieting may not respect your efforts/needs and continue to tempt-and-tease by not modifying their lifestyles or behaviours when interacting with you on a social level
- Emotional eating – celebratory events (birthday or anniversary parties, weddings, after-work team building) and eating your favourite foods to help lift your spirits can play havoc with weight loss goals
