How to make the diet easier to follow

The first step in making the diet easier to follow should be to set smaller and more realistic goals, like losing 0.5 kg per week, instead of 5 kg per week, for example. That's because realistic goals not only guarantee he althy weight loss, but also reduce frustration and anxiety with results that are difficult to achieve.

However, the biggest secret to making the diet easier is to think that this "new way of eating" should be practicable for a long time. For this reason, the menu should never be too restrictive and should, whenever possible, respect the preferences of each person.

In addition, physical activity must be present and regular, so that weight loss can be intensified without the need to create greater restrictions on what you eat.

How to start a diet the easy way

An excellent way to start the diet easily is to remove processed foods from your diet that are very high in calories and low in nutrients. Some examples are:

  • Soft drinks;
  • Cookies;
  • Ice cream;
  • Cakes.

The ideal is to exchange these products for natural foods, which in addition to almost always having fewer calories, also have more nutrients, being more beneficial for he alth. A good example is replacing the soda with a natural fruit juice, for example, or replacing the afternoon snack cookie with fruit.

Gradually, as the diet becomes part of the routine and becomes easier, other changes can be made that help to lose even more weight, such as avoiding fatty meats, such as picanha, and using other ways of cooking, giving preference to grilled and boiled.

Example menu for an easy diet

The following is a 1-day nutritional schedule, to serve as an example of the easy diet menu:

Breakfast Coffee + 1 slice of pineapple + 1 skimmed yogurt with 1 tablespoon of granola + 20g of 85% cocoa chocolate
Morning snack 1 boiled egg + 1 apple
Lunch Watercress, cucumber and tomato salad + 1 grilled fish fillet + 3 tablespoons of rice and beans
Afternoon snack 300 ml of unsweetened fruit smoothie and 1 tablespoon of oatmeal + 50g of wholegrain bread with 1 slice of cheese, 1 slice of tomato and lettuce
Dinner Vegetable cream + pepper, tomato and lettuce salad + 150 grams of chicken

This is a generic menu and therefore can be adapted according to personal preferences. The most important thing is to avoid the use of industrialized products and give preference to natural foods, in addition to not exaggerating the quantities. For this reason, it is always important to consult a nutritionist to create an individualized meal plan.
