Don’t Diet, Do Make a Lifestyle Change

Schedule Appointment 

Dieting has been proven to be the worst thing for your health. While taking control of your eating is vital to your weight loss journey, there is a better way than choosing a fad diet. A complete lifestyle change is what will be most beneficial to the lasting success of your journey. Allow the Aspen Clinic of Louisiana to give you some tips on how to make a lifestyle change, and ditch the diet. 

Diet vs Lifestyle Change 

A diet is a temporary change. You change your eating habits temporarily until you meet your weight loss goal, and then you return to your old ways. This takes quite the toll on the body and will have you right back where you started in no time. 

A lifestyle change consists of adopting healthy habits that promote long-term weight loss and control. This means making small changes in your everyday life, rather than making drastic changes all at once. Some examples of ways to kickstart your lifestyle change could be:

  • Gradually cutting back on junk food
  • Organize / plan workouts as a part of your everyday routine
  • Meal prepping
  • Drinking more water
  • Trying to incorporate more nutrient dense foods and cutting back on junk food
  • Organize / plan physical activity as a part of your day
  • Meal prepping
  • Drinking more water
  • Meditate or find ways to manage stress
  • Reduce TV or screen time to prioritize sleep

Eventually, if you stick to it, it will become a routine, and each step you take toward bettering your health will become a permanent change.
