Common Sense Tips To Complement Your Weight-Loss Programme

February 26, 2019

Don’t sabotage your diet or weight-loss programme!

If you have signed up to something akin to the weight-loss programme shown here, Β, you will soon burn off those calories and start to look and feel great. But you do need to use your common sense. The best programme or diet plan in the world won’t work for you if you don’t also show some wisdom within your daily habits.

Here are our common sense tips to complement your weight-loss programme.

Choose who you eat with. According to the article at, our dining companions influence what we eat. Should you go out for a meal with a light eater, for example, chances are you will choose something smaller from the menu in line with your meal partner’s choice. But the reverse is also true. Should you eat with somebody who enjoys bigger meals, then you may well follow suit. For you, there are two things you need to focus on. The first is willpower, so you aren’t tempted to ruin your weight-loss programme by following the bad eating habits of another. Secondly, choose your dining companions carefully, perhaps going out for a meal with somebody similar to or respectful of you and the weight-loss programme you are on.

Distract yourself from snacky eating. When we’re bored, we tend to eat, and that can be counterproductive to any weight-loss programme we are trying to follow. Therefore, try to do something else with your time when you feel the urge to grab a snack, such as going for a walk, getting out into the garden, or playing a game on your phone. The same applies when you’re at work. Eating to break up the monotony of your day can be counterproductive to both your job and your weight if you eat between mealtimes. Again, practice willpower, though if you do need to eat something at home or at work, opt for the healthier snacks we mentioned in one of our previous articles at, so you don’t ruin your weight plan.

Eat before you go shopping. Going to the supermarket hungry is tantamount to disaster. You might be tempted to stock your trolley with those foods that you know you shouldn’t eat, but are just far too tempting when those hunger pangs strike. Those chicken wings will always look more appealing than those salad boxes, for example. Therefore, eat before you go, as you will hopefully be more inclined to make healthier choices. You might also prepare a list before you go, being sure to stick rigidly to it to avoid putting anything you shouldn’t into your basket.

Clean out your fridge. And while you’re at it, clean out your food cupboards too. If you have any foods within either that are disastrous for your weight-loss plans, you need to remove the temptations before you. Even those things that you have earmarked for your treat days could be too much of a temptation when the urge to eat something sugary strikes! Instead, fill your fridge and food cupboards with foods and drinks that have been recommended to you in your diet and weight-loss guides, and choose healthier items for your treat days.

Let common sense rule! If you want to see the best results from your weight-loss programme, change your daily habits to follow suit. It will take willpower, and it will take effort, but keep in mind that the end result will be worth it.
