First things first, you need to have the right mindset in order to start any sort of diet, there is no point in starting a diet and not having your end goal in mind. What is the point in starting a strict eating plan when you think you may fall off the regime and go back to your old ways. You need to make sure that you are motivated to lose weight or you may get fed up of the monotony of some of the diets. You will need to look into what can and cannot be eaten in each diet, you cant exactly go on a diet that allows you to eat just red meat if you are a vegetarian right? You need to ask yourself if you have any dietary requirements or allergies alike. If you are pregnant you should not be dieting, you should be watching what you eat. Moreover you need to ask yourself, is this diet suitable for the lifestyle I lead? If the answer is yes, then go ahead with it. However if the answer is no then steer well clear of it. What is the point in choosing a diet that you need to eat or drink at certain times and your at work and this can’t be done.

OK so once you have thought about how this diet will affect your lifestyle and eating habits you can begin to get the right mindset.

Unless a diet specifically states otherwise, be sure to keep yourself fully hydrated throughout. Sometimes when a person is dehydrated they can mistake this for hunger. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. I personally take 2 liters of water a day, this helps keep my system cleansed. If you don’t particularly like water too much try adding some sliced lemons to give it a zing. Or try adding sliced cucumber to make it refreshing, or try adding mint leaves. If this still doesn’t tickle your fancy buy a low calorie sugar free squash that can be diluted, that way you will still be drinking mainly water. Theirs no need to stop drinking coffee or tea. Try cut back on caffeine slightly if you are addicted.

Whilst dieting the right mindset is important and try and not drink any alcohol. Alcohol depending upon what you drink can be full of calories and can make you look and feel really bloated. Not only can alcohol do this to you but it also dehydrates you and the day after your alcohol consumption your body is trying to burn the alcohol off, until this is done your body won’t burn any fat. Even diets that work well can’t do much when alcohol is involved.

Try eating slowly, the quicker you eat the less time there is for your stomach to tell your brain that you are full. Try chewing all of your food fully before swallowing. Also try and put your cutlery down between each mouthful, this will make you take a little bit longer. Try and eat away from the TV, the more focused you are on the TV, the less your brain tells you that your stomach has had enough.

Try and incorporate light to moderate exercise within your dieting too. Try walking to the local shops instead of getting in the car.

These are just some of the tips that can help you get the right mindset and lose a few pounds here and there.
