Top 5 Tips to Help You Lose Weight on Any Diet

1. Get organised.
When you see you've picked up a few pounds, don't rush off and start the nearest diet. Get organised - plan your menu, plan what snacks you'll have that you enjoy, go shopping, get rid of all those bad foods and fill your cupboards with the good ones. Prepare for the weekly rush by planning lunch menus for work, emergency dinners for the days you work late. .. You get the idea. Get organised and give yourself the highest chance of success in your diet.
2. Tell your family and friends
Its good to tell the people around you. Firstly, you may find that they are an invaluable source of support. Hopefully they will also not lead you into temptation if they know you're on a diet, like arriving with a great big chocolate cake or your favourite ice-cream. Let them know what you can and can't eat so that if they want to invite you to dinner they can make something that will suit you - if you don't you may find your social invitations dry up for no reason.
3. Choose a diet which suits you.
There are as many diets out there as there are people, so choose a diet which is as close to your lifestyle as possible. There are cabbage diets, high protein diets, high carb diets, calorie diet ... yes even chocolate diet ... or so I'm told, to choose one which is most suited to your lifestyle, that way the changes to your lifestyle will not be so drastic and you will have a much greater chance of being successful at changing your lifestyle and thus keeping the weight off.
4. Choose the type of exercise which you enjoy.
Like with the diets, there are numerous kinds of exercise out there so find out what exercise facilities there are in your community and then choose one which you enjoy. If you want to lose weight successfully and keep that weight off then you need to make exercise a routine, not just something you do when you have gained those extra pounds. Once again it comes down to the fact that it's a lifestyle change, so choose something that you will enjoy doing for many years to come.
5. Prepare mentally - this is a lifestyle change not a diet.
As mentioned above, the most successful diet plan is one which ultimately leads to change in your lifestyle, which means you will keep the pounds off and hopefully never have to diet again. So in order to change your lifestyle, I would recommend changing one or two things at a time. Let those changes become a habit and then make the next few changes. If you change too much too soon, you're going to probably end up chucking the whole lot. Small changes need not mean small weight loss. See what is keeping you from losing weight the most and change that first, like sugar for example. Just substituting sugar for sugar substitute could help you loose three or four pounds a month. Once the habits set in then change the next thing... but keep making those changes, until you are the new healthier you.
Good luck with the weight loss.
