HOW TO STOP CHEATING ON YOUR DIET AND LOOK GREAT!

Being consistent with your diet and training is critical to managing diabetes, and building a stronger better-looking body.

 

There are many challenges and distractions to getting in shape. The temptation of high-calorie convenience food presents itself everywhere you go and machines are taking your jobs.

It’s becoming easier and easier to overeat, move less and become an obesity statistic.

In this article, I want to highlight 5 useful tips that will help keep you on the straight and narrow with your muscle building and fat loss efforts.

 

 


1. Persistence is important, but planned, periodic bouts of “being bad” can actually be a good thing.


 

This can include everything from holidays, training breaks, sleeping in right through to portion controlled food options that lie outside normal ‘clean eating’.

 


 2. The SMART method is a great way to approach your diabetic body building and fitness goals.


 

Specific,

Measurable,

Attainable,

Realistic,

Time-Bound

 

Are your behaviours allowing you to achieve your goals?

If not, what can you do to alter these behaviours or habits?

 


3. If you keep slipping up (take note.)


 

You either don’t want it bad enough or your diet and training programmes need to be tweaked.

 


4. A rigid, all-or-nothing approach to fitness is self-sabotaging to the majority of individuals, especially those who try to do it long-term.


 

Staying in contest or photo shoot ready shape 365 days a year is not practical for 99% of the population both Physiologically (physically) and Psychologically (mentally) speaking.

 

Realise most of the incredibly shaped body’s you see on the fronts of magazines and Instagram eat, sleep and breathe fitness 24/7.

 

It’s their full-time job to look good. And, they usually have more time, money and effort to dedicate towards their goals than the average member of the public who works a full-time job.

 

There are various reasons behind an ‘all or nothing’ approach. Most people follow what they deem necessary, largely as a result of media influence. But, fail to question or critique their approach.

 

Other reasons include habit, deep rooted insecurity and even a superiority complex of ‘I’m working harder than you.’

 

Anxiety, depression and loss of opportunity in life and business can often result from being too fixated on your fitness endeavours.

 

You must find balance, be patient and realise not everything goes to plan.

 


5. Enjoyment is often more important than progress.

How you look, feel and perform right now is a result of what you do on average. If you can’t stick to your approach over the long term, your results won’t last.
