6 Biggest Mistakes In Your Diet

Sometimes when you follow some strict diet rules in order to lose weight, you get good results, but sometimes it’s helpless. One diet provides different results at different time. Which are the mistakes you make and what makes your diet effortless?




1. You forgot your training

No diet will work without any exercise. Sad but true!
Even if you gain few pounds, it is very likely to gain them back, if you relax and afford some delicious and unhealthy meal for a moment. But when you are doing exercises along with your diet, you can lose weight much easier.

2. You skip breakfast

You should not skip breakfast if you are following special diet program. In the morning you wake up 8 to 10 hours after your last meal. Same as your car, your body needs “fuel” to function normally as well.
Plus, when you eat your breakfast regularly, the chances to eat too much at lunch are minimal.

3. You do not get enough calories

Your body needs a certain number of calories per day to function properly. Consuming less than 1000 calories can lead to some health problems.
Your metabolism will slow down and it will take several years to start normal functioning again.

4. Do not control the size of a portion

The amount of food you eat during a meal is important. If you eat too much, your body may not be able to digest food well and if you eat a little, then you will not satisfy the needs of your body (vitamins, minerals, proteins, calories, carbohydrates, fiber etc…) Controlling the size of  your meals is one of the things you should always have on mind.
And remember that it is better to eat smaller portions five times a day, rather than having 3 large meals during the day. This is also boosting your metabolism.





5. You are not sleeping enough

Sleeping has the same importance for your body as food and water do. If you do not sleep enough, your diet efforts will not give any results.
So do not be one of those people who spend their lifetime pactising weight loss diet  without getting any results, because of the stupid mistakes which can be easily avoided.

6. You eat in nervous and stressful situations

— You are under stress every day and problems constantly come out of nowhere. What are you supposed to do to feel better? You most certainly should not eat any junk food and drink alcohol! Find a new way to relieve stress and solve problems.
Free tips to relieve your stress: Do some exercise and activity, go out for a simple walk, socialize like going out with friends, calm your mind with some meditation and relaxing music, sleep well and eat food rich in Omega-3 acids.
