Are you prepared to overcome pitfalls of dieting to achieve optimal success?
When diets fail, it leaves you with a feeling of demotivation.
Upon research, Astro Ulagam found 4 reasons most diets fail.
1) Unrealistic Calorie Consumption
Most people assume that dieting means starving. This method will only set you up to fail because when you consume so little food, your body will start to shut down to conserve fuel due to stress. Then, you will only experience weight gain!
2) Lack of Satiety-Boosting Nutrients
Sadly, the conventional diets lack the most filling and satiating nutrients which are fiber and protein! Protein is essential for building muscles and breaks down very slowly in the digestive system, thus keeping you fuller for longer.
3) Meal Prep Is Time Consuming
Do you have time spending an hour each and every day to meal prep? If it’s impossible, no wonder it’s hard to stick to and find success. Always remember that your diet plan should work with your schedule and lifestyle, not against it.
4) The Long-Term Approach
Most importantly, your diet should be a sustainable approach for it to be successful
