Sticking to a diet and weight loss regime is basically that.
You have to accept certain things before you start and while you’re at it. Be brave.
- Accept that you will never be able to eat like you used to.
- Accept that you will no longer be able to have your favourite foods often.
- Accept that you will feel hungry, especially at night, before bedtime.
I will not talk about the good things that come from such a regime. You must take the hard stuff first. You must accept. If you don’t accept, your quest will be futile.
If you’re still unsure – test yourself first. Change your diet. Cut your carbs intake by 1/3. Try that for a start and see if you can maintain it for a few months, enough to lose a bit of weight. If you succeed, you are on your way to learning….. to accept.
The good news is this: acceptance later becomes the norm – it will no longer bother you.
