28 Day Diet Challenge

By October 10, 2022 No Comments

Dieting can be a lot of hard work and getting started can impact your lifestyle in more ways than you first imagine. 

A diet ultimately requires a lot of commitment and dedication. So if you are interested in starting a diet then there are a few things you can do to make life easier and increase the chances that you will stay motivated as you work towards your ultimate goal.

Remember: Small Steps Lead To Big Goals

The first thing you should do is set some realistic targets for yourself. Start with the small things too, because this will help you overcome inertia. 

Little changes can be made without too much effort. The mental boost you get from successfully changing little things in the early stages will motivate you to get to the next target. You basically hack your psychology to form the habits that make the whole thing a self-fulfilling process.

Drink More Water

Drinking more water can work wonders. Not only does proper hydration keep your body functioning properly, but it also boosts energy and brain function.  

The other thing to consider is that by drinking more water, you can actually end up drinking less of the stuff that can be bad for you. Things like caffeinated, or sugary drinks. Not only do these sorts of fluids have lots of hidden calories, but teas, coffees and sugary drinks can actually have a dehydrating effect. 

Get yourself a BPA-free water bottle and try to track the amount of water you drink throughout the day. 

 

Make Your Life As Easy As Possible

We have built a business out of helping busy people improve their health and wellbeing. We know from experience that life often gets in the way! It is day-to-day stuff, like trying to prepare a healthy meal after a long day at work, or grabbing something unhealthy because you didn’t have time to sort breakfast. 

There is a simple solution: plan ahead to make sure you’ve got the right things around you! 

Work Out Your Meals

At the start of your 28 day diet challenge you should work out the sort of meals that you like to eat. Think about healthy and nutritious dishes that you will be happy to have over the next month. It is recommended that you try to eat a balanced diet that includes fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as enough protein and carbs to keep you moving forward.

Ideally you should be eating the right sort of portions for your caloric requirements too. A hearty meal doesn’t have to be MASSIVE. We’re not really for diets that count calories at Recipe for Results, but it is really easy to overeat so watch your portion sizes.

 

Go For Convenience 

A lot of the food industry is built around convenience. Unfortunately, convenient options are often the most unhealthy options. 

It is really simple to batch cook meals at home. There are loads of easy to cook recipes that can be refrigerated or frozen for later. If you aren’t the best chef, but would like to have healthy and convenient meals then you should check out our meal prep services

Do Your Research 

There is so much information out there online, some good and some a little more extreme. Take a bit of time to research different diets, fitness plans and healthy activities. Talk to people who have been on their own diet journeys and try to learn from their experiences. The main thing to look for is something that will work for you, because that will be key to your success!

What They’re Saying About Us

I started Personal Training with Recipe For Results recently with a very specific goal in mind, but I had no idea how to achieve it or if it was even possible. When I met Martyn he was very knowledgeable and encouraging.

I started Personal Training with Martyn as I had recently had a hip replacement and I was very overweight and unfit. I had been doing a gentle, boring routine for a while and lost some weight but needed motivation to increase my fitness.

Martyn keeps the Personal Training sessions interesting by teaching you different exercises each week and really pushing you forward so you can achieve your goals.
