The Simple Steps On How To Stay Consistent On A Diet


Consistency is key to any result you want to achieve


The steps we take every single day determine our outcome and so when it comes to losing weight and keep the weight off, it is important that we stay consistent and learn the habits needed to get the results we want


In order to understand how you can stay consistent, you have to first understand what type of 'dieter' or 'exerciser' you are when it comes to your plan


Type 1:


This is your most common and one that will unfortunately be yo-yo dieting for years... until they change their way of thinking


A typical week goes like this;


Monday - Amazing

Tuesday - Amazing

Wednesday - A couple of things off track (treat, drinks, skipping exercise)

Thursday - Finished... breakfast usually ok but the rest is no where near what they want

Friday - Start again Monday

Saturday - "Who cares... blow out - I am starting Monday"

Sunday - "No way... this is it... I am starting Monday"


And unfortunately they usually repeat


That is type 1


Type 2:


These are slightly different


For 4-5 weeks they are amazing


They do everything they set out to do and then for some reason they get complacent


The scales have dropped and they are really starting to feel good about themselves


And because of this


They sneak in things where it was not planned


A mid week drink...


A few extra treats that were not accounted for


A skipped workout


And before you know it


The next 2-3 weeks is a huge undoing of the hard work they put in to the previous 4-5 weeks


And then we have the final one


Type 3:


Type 3 tends to be the inspiration for a lot of people


But they also tend to be the person who receives the most 'well its easy for you' comments


These are the people who just 'get it'


They decide that Monday is the day


And away they go


New habits


New gym routine


New lifestyle


Long lasting changes


The ones we love to hate


But the ones who get the results and keep it off


How You Can Be Like Type 3


As someone who has coaches 1000's of women both on offline over the past 20 years


What we never really see about 'Type 3' is that they too have struggles


But what type 3 does which type 1 and 2 do not


Is type 3 makes contingency plans and also recognises the triggers


So, for that split second of satisfaction they learn to ignore it and do something that they

KNOW will make them feel good


An examples is; Instead of reaching for a 'small glass of wine' they will reach for water too


Yes they might crave the wine


But once they have drank the water and got in to bed, the craving will not be there


And in one step they are working on creating their habits of not drinking through the week


You have to put temporary 'satisfaction' aside and look at the bigger picture


The Power of Consistency


Let's say you want to save £30


If, everyday for 30-days you put £1 away you would have £30 :)


But... if you skipped 12 days you would only have £18


Meaning it would take you slightly longer


But let us say that in the following month you only saved 10 days


That would mean you would have an extra £10 to go with your £18 (£28 in total - I am a wizz at maths...)


And for the following month you managed to save the £2 in the first 2 days


That initial goal of saving £30 took you 3 months instead of £1


BUT...


And this is the huge part


You didn't give up


You messed up


You skipped days of saving


But eventually you got to your goal


Losing weight and staying consistent is exactly the same


It is not always as easy as 'just losing weight'


The things you have to do each day (like save £1) is part of the journey


And when you get in to the habit of doing that


The whole process becomes easier


Consistency Means To Never Give Up


Part of the journey of creating habits (consistency) is to never give up


No matter what mistakes you make


Just make sure the next meal/drink is the right choice for your results


Identifying the habits you currently have that are stopping you from getting the body and weight loss results you want is step 1


Simply list what you are currently doing that you know isn't helping


If this is something you enjoy (like a drink)


Then look at ways you can add this in to your week to your benefit and not something that

stops you getting the results you want
