The RIGHT and WRONG Ways to Lose Weight

2. Think Long-term

As much as we all would love it, there really doesn’t seem to be any quick way to lose weight. Starvation might work for a while but that’s both impractical and potentially dangerous to your health. Your best bet is to not think of your diet as a diet. Instead, think of it as a lifestyle change. That may sound difficult but your new lifestyle doesn’t have to be completely free of tasty, indulgent food. A lot of people are successful with something called the “80/20 rule.” This plan demands that you stick to your diet plan 80 percent of the time but allows you to indulge a bit for the other 20 percent of the time. A plan like this is usually much easier to stick to since you are not completely depriving yourself of the food you love.
