MY SECRET SAUCE – 5 TIPS:
TIP NO. 1Instead of thinking, that you are resigning, start to look for alternatives to your favorite high calorie dishes. Personally, I love ice cream. My alternative is crushed frozen fruits mixed with low fat plain yogurt, trust me, it becomes a delicious soft ice cream. And from time to time, I also have some real ice cream. But then, I only have single scoop instead of a whole bowl topped with whipped cream – and I really celebrate and enjoy it at my favorite ice cream parlor.
TIP NO. 2Start with a complete detoxification of sugar. I did not eat any sugar, sweets e.g. for months. At the beginning of your new diet you will be highly motivated, which makes it easy to resist to candy. Use this time to wean your body from sugar.
TIP NO. 3Stay forceful and don’t tolerate any spontaneous exception. Even though people are sometimes annoyed by my strictness when it comes to my diet, I don’t tolerate exceptions. I can easily stand a coffee table without having any cake – if this gnaws at one’s conscience, it’s not of my business. And if I dare for a piece of cake, I budget it before. By the way, most host appreciate if you bring a cake, dessert or a salad to the party. This way you can prepare something that fits into your diet unseen.
TIP NO. 4Likewise I handle eating outs. I don’t want to castigate myself and quit meeting friends in a restaurant. If I would have done it, I feel, I wouldn’t have been successful. Thus, I still visit my favorite Italian or regular Greek restaurant, but I plan a visit in prior and usually check the menu before to select a dish that fits into my plans. It doesn’t have to be a salad all the time. I prefer a grilled fish or meat with vegetables and avoid carbohydrate side dishes like pasta, potatoes or rice.
TIP NO. 5From time to time you might think you’ll never make it, because your final goal is far away. In this case, it helps to define in between goals. If you reach one, you feel good and proud – this way it’s easier to stick to your plans. I always rewarded myself when I reached a goal, not with food, but for example with something new to wear, a wellness appointment or a trip.
