The 5 things you should do when you STOP a diet
It’s very easy to focus on your diet and just doing that however when you stop dieting or come off your diet what you do next is more important than the diet itself, as what you do next can have disastrous effects on all your effort and hard work you have just put in.
Some people will lose a lot of weight, look and feel incredible but deep down believe they are still a fat person, that they don’t deserve the body they now have, that they’re lying to themselves and everyone else being this weight, I come across this feeling A LOT in my role, people believing that they just shouldn’t be happy, that they don’t deserve it for some reason.
Knowing people have the chance to be truly happy and comfortable in there ‘new’ body but feel like they don’t deserve it makes me feel sad!
If you have done the work, you have got the results and you love the way you look, you NEED to make sure you keep it, beat your mental demons and stay happy.
So when you come off your diet what you do now is essential to keeping your ‘new’ body and newly found confidence.
Here’s the top 5 things to do now:
Losing weight is SO easy that’s why so many people do it every year, but 95% of diets ‘fail’ that failure rate is that high because people lose weight and a week later put it all back on, people lose loads of weight feel like they aren’t them selves anymore, even there friends will say dumb stuff like I preferred you being fat, you were funnier, FUCK THOSE ‘FRIENDS’ any friend who stops liking you because you want to become healthier, leaner and aren’t the same as before isn’t a real friend, they are a selfish person who wants you to be the same old person so they feel good about themselves that they can’t change but you can, and it’s the exact same with office colleagues, who say things like ‘you don’t need to lose weight you look good now’, ‘you should enjoy yourself while you can and lose weight in the future’ or ‘you do you bother going to the gym, you aren’t a gym person, just be yourself’
YOUR PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING, PUT YOURSELF FIRST - I’m sorry if you lose friends because of your weight loss I really am, but now you have the opportunity of better overall health, find new friends who put theirs and you health first but don’t take the world too seriously like vegans do.
Fitness isn’t a cult, don’t be draw into one.
Sorry for the rant!
Good luck with your diets! Keep the weight off!
Be Happy and Be Strong 💪
