8 Easy Ways To Stop Temptation Ruining Your Summer Diet Plan
Get your summer diet plan off to the perfect start thanks to our 8 top tips to stop temptation ruining it!
The arrival of warmer weather and the fact that summer is fast approaching can leave many of us with the realisation that we haven’t quite completed (or even started) our dieting journey. If you are planning to begin or continue a summer diet plan, this blog post is definitely for you! The idea of dieting during summer may seem daunting but the truth is, it can actually be an easier time of year to lose weight. With warmer weather and longer days, it’s much easier to get outside. Plus, many people have the perfect motivation in the form of a wedding, big occasion, trip away or sun holiday.
To maximise your success, help you smash your summer diet plan and achieve the results you’ve dreamed of, we’ve put together 8 top tips to help stop temptation ruining your summer diet plan.
1. Get Support In Secret Slimmers
Instant help is at your fingertips. If you need a little boost to help you avoid temptation, simply reach out on our Secret Slimmer’s Facebook page. It is an amazing community and the members always know the right things to say to help you stick to your summer diet plan.
2. Get Yourself a Summer Diet Plan Buddy
If you know someone who would like our plan, get them to join you! Dieting with someone else will make you accountable and instil a little healthy competition, meaning you are both more likely to stick to the plan and succeed!
3. Take Before Photos
We get it – when you are feeling your absolute worst the last thing you probably want to do is take a photo of yourself, but trust us, you will thank us for this later. At the beginning take a full length photo of yourself. Stick this somewhere that you can see it throughout the day for an instant boost of motivation.
Grab a pen and paper and write down how you’re feeling. What is it that is makes you feel like you want to blip? What can you do to avoid this? What can you do instead of eating that will make you feel better?
5. Make a List
Write a ‘for’ and ‘against’ list. In the ‘for’ section you can write all the reasons why you feel you need to have a blip. In the ‘against’ list write down all the feelings you will have and consequences there will be from having a blip. Comparing the two should steer you in the right direction.
Meditation is an easy and effective way to restore calm and clear your mind. Dim the lights, light some beautifully scented candles and practice taking some deep breathes until you feel your heart rate settle and your mood rebalance.
7. Lose Yourself In Something
A good book or audiobook can be great distractions, taking your mind off food and focusing it elsewhere. Likewise, going for a walk and soaking up the beauty of nature is an excellent distraction technique.
8. Complete That Project
We all have one – that project we’ve been putting off for weeks. If you are feeling tempted to ruin your summer diet plan, get stuck in! Fully immerse yourself and when it’s complete, you’ll enjoy a great sense of satisfaction.
