Tip #26: Focus On Fitness And Diet As A Lifestyle, Not A Program
We’ve all seen article headlines like this:
- 10 Weeks To Better Abs!
- 8 Week Fat Blasting Diet!
- Drop 15 Pounds In 2 Weeks!
Instead of seeking programs that provide temporary fixes, approach exercise and diet as a lifestyle. If you are only after short-term changes, and follow a short-term program, there’s a good chance that once the program is over you will resort back to your old habits. In fact, men and women who use short-term, fad approaches usually fall off the wagon and end up worse off than they started.
Seek out diet and fitness plans and programs that will fit well as a lifestyle. Set both short-term and long-term goals. Understand that once your short-term goals have been reached, the real work begins: maintaining your results.
