Firstly, new year is a great time to start a diet. You may have a new goal or new years resolution but it’s a time when the slate is swiped clean so to speak.
But typically, why do these diets last for a short amount of time?
- They are too drastic
- Eating food that you don’t enjoy
- Too much exercise
- Belief that cardiovascular training is the only way to lose body fat
- Unrealistic goal setting
- Loss of motivation when weight loss slows down
Stay motivated, set yourself realistic goals and eat a sustainable diet!
