Patience: A Virtue Essential To Your Weight Loss Success
The key to success for first-time and returning dieters.
One major mindset challenge to losing weight is expecting too much, too fast. Sure it’s human nature that once we resolve to drop the pounds, we want the results F-A-S-T! We live in a world of easy access and ever greater conveniences, where the need for instant gratification creates an unreasonable expectation when it comes to weight loss. Losing weight is really about learning to eat correctly for the rest of your life. This process takes time – something many dieters may find frustrating.
Most weight gain is years in the making, so why expect rapid weight loss within days or weeks? If you find yourself feeling impatient or in a hurry, are you being reasonable with your expectations? Likely not. According to most medical experts, a weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week is considered a good rate for most healthy adult dieters. Couple this with the fact that history shows you can typically get the best and most lasting results when you work towards modifying your relationship with food and learn to eat healthfully. When you concentrate on eating correctly, the weight takes care of itself.
While no diet is final, the approach and science behind the Ideal Protein protocol enable you to lose fat at an appropriate pace while preserving muscle mass and maintaining a healthy metabolism. We believe this fat loss and muscle sparing method is the most effective way to lose weight.
When you are ready to jump on the weight loss bandwagon for the first time or get back on, be sure to adopt a healthy measure of patience to ensure lasting, productive, and positive results.
