Want to Succeed on Your Diet, Find a Diet Buddy


If you're like most people who tried losing weight on a diet and failed it's probably because you didn't have enough support. Sure family, friends and even your spouse can help but one the best ways to succeed on a diet is to choose a diet buddy. The best diet buddy is someone whose goals are similar to yours. If you have to lose 10 pounds and they have to lose 60 that's not a good match. The more weight you have to lose the closer that person should be to you physically. If you've only got five to ten pounds to lose that person could be across the street or across the country. However if you have 40 pounds to lose you really need someone who can offer you more support. One of the most effective weight loss methods is keeping a journal of what you eat and how much you exercise. You should exchange your journal with your diet buddy and help each other correct mistakes you may have made. You should meet with your diet buddy as often as possible. One of the best places is to meet at the gym every morning and compare your journals over breakfast. Another good alternative is lunchtime, this helps you make smart healthy food choices and resist the temptation to pig out.Try to avoid choosing someone who you live with as your diet buddy. Sibling rivalry or spousal spats are a natural part of life, causing stress and anxiety about not having the full support of your diet buddy leads to unnecessary anxiety and stress or emotional related eating.

Be sure you and your buddy set up goals and rewards for yourselves. Think going shopping or going to the movies, not hot fudge sundaes. Realize it's ok to have some non diet foods like pizza occasionally. Just make sure occasionally means occasionally. Try experimenting with healthy recipes or new foods with each other. If each of you suggests one new food item a week it can help break the monotony of rice cakes on a regular basis. Remember you and your diet buddy are in this together and are not competing with one another. It's not supposed to be competition of who can lose the most, or fit into their skinny jeans first, it's about helping and supporting a friend.
