The Lifestyle Change
This is not a “diet” by definition, it’s pretty much what the name implies… and that is making a change to your current lifestyle. This means to simply switch around everything you are doing now to the healthier version. Drinking tons of soda switches to drinking tons of water, eating tons of junk foods switches to eating plenty of raw fruits, veggies, and nuts, skipping breakfast switches to ensuring you eat breakfast everyday, eating one or two GINORMOUS meals a day switches to eating 4-6 small healthier meals a day, etc.
If you choose this approach, you’ll obviously find it more easier to get started, but it may be difficult to stick with. The reason it may be difficult to stick with is because you don’t necessarily have any supportive structure to doing this. You are going off of your raw will power to stick with it. Some people can manage this, some can’t. I know I couldn’t in the beginning! That’s why I chose to go on a simple to follow, but very powerful type of diet to get rid of my HUGE stomach and excess weight!
By the way, I’ll share with you at the end the type of diet I used that flattened my stomach and helped me lose over 52 pounds in 8 weeks… naturally and permanently!
The Cheat Meal Diet
This type of diet is becoming more and more popular. It’s based around eating VERY healthy for a set amount of time throughout the week. Then, you are allowed to have a specific type of cheat meal or day based off of some principles. The theory of this diet is that by doing this you will end up causing your metabolism to soar as high as possible. The faster your metabolism, the quicker you’ll burn fat… and keep it off.
The only problem with this type of diet is that many people find it hard to stick to. The reason why is because their will power is not strong enough to just have one or two cheat days a week. Once they have those delicious BAD FOODS they were so accustomed to before beginning the diet, it’s hard not to continue eating them past the cheat day!
