With countless fad diets out there, you may find one that helps you lose weight for a while. But unless your diet and exercise plan is based on sound principles, you will probably see the weight come back eventually. To help you lose pounds and keep them off for the long haul, here are some great tips to stay on track with your weight loss.

Make Realistic, Specific Goals

Millions of people want to “lose weight” or “work out more,” but they rarely go beyond this to actually make their goals. Have a particular goal in mind, such as walking for 30 minutes every day or losing 20 pounds in the next several months. Having this specific and realistic goal in mind can help you stick to a concrete plan more than a vague goal ever will.

Understand What Triggers Your Overeating

Do you indulge in food when you’re stressed? Do you snack when you’re bored? Can you not turn down free food? Learn about what circumstances typically lead you to eat too much; then, try to avoid those situations or find healthier solutions. For instance, you can handle stress through meditation, going on a walk, or some other coping method instead of eating.

Being more self-aware can help you recognize opportunities to make better choices and see real results. Plus, you can develop healthier habits that can improve your quality of life overall.

Take Your Time Filling Up

By the time you finish a meal, you should feel full. Unfortunately, many people rush through meals, which can make the body feel as though it needs more when it really doesn’t. Slow down when you eat and savor your bites. If a meal takes you between 15 and 20 minutes to eat, you’ll likely feel more satisfied and avoid overeating.

Also, when you dish up, you can use a smaller plate, which can make a smaller portion still look like a substantial amount of food.

Keep Track of Your Progress

You may not realize how much you eat in a given day. Recording your food intake daily will help you see what kinds of food you eat and how much, potentially revealing areas you can improve. Also, writing down your weight progress can be incredibly rewarding and motivating. If you see the steady decrease in your weight, you can see that your efforts are working and have the strength to continue them in the long term.

If you want to avoid a roller coaster ride with your weight, follow these tips. You’ll see progress that you can maintain for years to come!
