The start of a new diet is always very important. If it doesn’t work out as you thought it would, you are likely to end up feeling even worse than before you started. This could have a negative outcome on the progress of your diet. Therefor it is important to make a good plan. If the plan of a diet is good, and the goal is reachable, your chance of success is a lot higher.
A good idea for the start of a diet is to make a new, weekly, goal for yourself. This goal could contain the following elements.
The most important thing about the plan is, that it should contain enough goals for you to accomplish. If, for instance, your goal is to walk an hour every day, and you succeed in doing this, you will feel good. If you set the bar too high, and you do not reach this bar, you will not feel well. This leads to a drop in your motivation. And motivation is one of the most important things if you are following a diet.
If it has come to a point where you weigh too much, you probably are consuming too many calories. This means that you will have to lower the amount of what you eat per day. This actually is the most important thing of every diet. The healthiest way of losing weight is by not eating too much. If you do this, and at the same time you start working out more than you did, you will lose weight in a good way.
Your goal should be to consume no more than 2000 calories per day. Of course you can try to eat a lot less, but this would not be healthy. You would be destroying your body by consequently eating way too few calories. Most of the times you will end up depressed as well. If our bodies don't get enough energy, we will start feeling unhappy.
It may be true that you will lose weight a lot less quickly when you try to lose weight the healthy way, but speed is not the most important thing when dieting! The strength in a diet lies in the fact if you can stick with your diet. This is a result from the fact that your body familiarizes itself with the amount of calories it receives. So when you would give up your strict 500-calorie diet and you pick up your normal eating pattern again, you will gain weight very fast.
