Making Changes Stick

The low-carb lifestyle is something that was previously quite a challenge for my family and me. Such a drastic change to avoid convenient filler items like bread and pasta. The restrictions alone seem to be complicated enough for a first-timer trying to get into a better body. After many ventures of eating low-carb for extended periods of time, it is pretty much just how we eat. It's not a struggle to come up with some food ideas, or to figure out my nutritional needs for the day. It gets easier; much easier. Over time we crave carbs less, and crave healthy fats and protein more! Even on my days or weekends off I still try to eat lots of vegetables and healthy foods.

The reason so many people end up failing at dieting is because they are simply trying to diet, lose the weight, and go back to the way they were eating before. It's no surprise that if they do lose weight initially, they tend to regain it back - and sometimes end up even worse than before. The important thing to realize is that some changes will need to be permanent. There is a reason you are trying to diet, and that's because your normal routine isn't working out.

Part of this is weeding through the misinformation out there. And there is a lot of it. On top of that, there are those who seem to be dead set on discouraging you. "It's just one slice of pizza!" or "You can work out tomorrow!" "You look good how you are!" Or anything along those lines. They might mean well but it is absolutely not helpful.
