6 Steps For A Good Diet Plan

"I've got to lose weight as fast as I can!"

Step 1 -- Find where you are now

The more directly you face a problem -- any problem -- the easier it is to solve.

Short-term quick fixes get you nowhere. A real solution includes planning.

Planning starts with:

  • Current weight?
  • Body composition?
  • Likes and dislikes?
  • How disciplined are you?
  • How able to make changes?
  • Any real trouble spots?

Proper planning can help you reach goals that you thought you'd never reach. Find our more about the best diet plan for you at this link.

Step 2 -- Set your goals

You should set firm goals. These include:

  • Weight -- short term
  • Weight -- long term
  • Body composition
  • Time

Short term weight loss -- dropping the first 10 pounds -- celebrate that. It's reachable.

But don't sell yourself short. What about a long-term goal:? Lean and sexy. Muscular. Trim. Or just thinking you look good in your clothes and can do the things you want to do in life without a struggle. How would that be?

Body composition? Lose fat, not muscle.

Time? The most successful weight loss is sure and steady. Not fast. Not drastic. It takes time.

Here's a link to much more about setting your weight loss goals and actually reaching them.

One step at a time is enough for me. Impatience is simply a way of beating yourself up.

Step 3 -- Make your goals real

How? First, invent -- dream it up -- your new body. Pick your:

  • Dress size
  • Waist size
  • Hips
  • Thighs

Dream it up and write it down.

Find a picture to go with it. That's how you're going to look. Put a copy on your refrigerator. Another one on your mirror.

Second, decide how you'll get there:

  • What can you do?
  • What will you do?

Without goals and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.

Step 4 -- Activate your goals

How? Commit yourself. Write it down.

  • What will you accomplish?
  • When will you accomplish it?

Then post it: On the mirror. In your journal. But only post it where you have complete trust in anyone that might see it. Any chance someone will see it that does not support you 100% at all times? Then never let them see your goals.

"Lose weight" is not a goal.

  • 25 pounds is a goal.
  • 3 months is a goal.
  • Size 8 is a goal.

Goals are exact. Numbers. Dates. Nothing wishy-washy.

Clear goals = clear path to success.

Real goals aren't made of spider webs and shadows. Real goals are set in concrete. Find out more about successful weight loss here.

Step 5 -- Don't overlook the details

It's the little things that count. There's no magic bullet.

Looking for an instant solution? Stop looking. It won't happen.

  • Little steps add up to big results.
  • Weight is gained -- and lost-- on the details.
  • Small tips have power to transform.

Will it make you healthier? Stronger? Leaner? Then use it.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.


Step 6 -- Adjust and balance

Your plan should lead to success. Not failure.

Not "papa bear" too hard. Or "mama bear" too easy. But "baby bear" just right.

  • No treats? No snacks? No pizza? Too hard.
  • Daily drive-through? Chips? Cheeseburgers? Too easy.
  • 90% healthy during the week? Fun food Saturday night? You're in balance.

These all need to be in balance: Exercise. Diet. Sleep. Supplements. Free time. Friends. It all matters.

The key: Don't do things that make you fail.
