The Biggest Dieting Mistakes You Might Be Making

Working hard towards your goal to shed excess body fat? If so, you should be doing self-checks regularly to make sure that you’re staying on track and are not making any serious dieting mistakes that could significantly cost you your progress.

So which are the most critical slimming mistakes that many people make?

What must you avoid if you want to see optimal success?

Let’s have a look at the biggest  mistakes that you must make sure you’re not committing if you hope to see success.

Lack Of Monitoring Your Diet

The first mistake is not monitoring your diet plan. You eat healthy and figure that’s enough. As long as you cut the junk food out of the mix, that should be enough to get you seeing results, right?


While eating healthy is good, you can still gain weight eating healthy foods.

You need to eat healthy and eat a calorie deficit to help your body to shed those extras pounds. That is your ticket to success.

Doing Too Much, Too Soon

Another vital mistake that you must be sure you’re not making is doing too much, too soon. This means hopping onto a workout programme that has you in the gym six days a week for 90 minutes each time.

And on top of that you’re taking your calorie intake down to 1200 calories per day.

If you do this, your body is going to revolt and you will pay the price.

Slow and steady needs to be the name of your game. Sure, in the short term you may think it’s going to take longer, but really, you’ll get to your end goal faster going that route.

Not Having A Plan

The last mistake that you must be sure you aren’t making is not having a plan in the first place. Far too many people start the day without knowing what they’ll eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all the snacks in between.

If you leave your diet up to chance, the chances are that the foods you eat are not going to be ones that promote weight loss. Temptation is just too high and that temptation will lurk around almost every corner.

Put a plan in place and you will see greater success.

So there you have the top mistakes to avoid. Are you committing any of these?
