To really see best results from any diet plan you choose to use, you need to learn a few ‘diet commandments’. These are guidelines that must be followed if you are going to see superior results that will help propel you forward.
Sadly, many people miss out on one or more of these and it greatly costs them their success.
Want to learn more? Check out the list of five commandments below.
Thou Shall Eat More Protein
Of all the foods that you could eat while on a fat loss diet, protein is perhaps the most important. Protein helps combat hunger, it helps stabilize blood glucose levels, and it helps prevent lean muscle mass loss. This in turn helps speed up your metabolism and accelerates the process of fat loss.
Don’t let your diet intake fall short. Aim to eat some protein in each and every meal and snack that you consume.
Thou Shall Eat Regularly
While the concept that your metabolism will increase the more often you eat isn’t entirely accurate — as the boost you get after a meal is directly related to the size of that meal — eating regularly does help to keep hunger at bay.
Thou Shall Prioritize Fresh Foods
If you only make one change to your diet plan, make it this one.
Thou Shall Set Short Term Goals
One diet rule that you should abide by and follow is to always set short term goals for yourself. Think about what you are doing in the here and now, not months from now. It’s too easy to lose sight of your goals if they are going to take place six months to a year down the road.
Thou Shall Stop Comparisons
Instead, start comparing yourself today to yourself from yesterday. That will give you all the details you need to know. If each day you are getting better, you are successful in your journey.
