I have no idea how many different diets you have tried. Probably too many to count.
But one thing I do know, is if you don’t change your mindset, no matter what type of diet you try, you will never be successful.
If you’re like most people, you have probably had your own experience with the vicious cycle of weight loss.
It goes a little something like this….
You start a new diet and you’re all excited about it. You follow the directions exactly as they are laid out.
Because you are carefully following the guidelines, you start to see results.
This pattern continues for the next few days.
But sooner or later, you start to notice the pounds coming back.
This is the vicious cycle of weight loss and it affects all too many people.
The good news is you can reverse this frustrating pattern by adjusting your mindset.
3 Mindset Shifts That Will Ensure Keto Diet Success
Believe That You Can Do It
The first step in accomplishing anything is actually believing you can do it. Success with the keto diet is no different.
Its easy to get hyped up when you see all the unbelievable before and after pictures.
One thing you have to remember, many of those photos have been edited.
However, that doesn’t mean the diet isn’t effective.
While its perfectly normal to be skeptical, you don’t want to be so skeptical that you stop believing the diet will work for you.
There is proof that the keto diet has helped thousands of people transform their body’s.
Chances are it can do the same for you.
But first you must believe that it will work for you.
If you can’t adjust your mindset to believe the keto diet will work for you, then chances are you won’t get good results.
Start With What You Already Have
One of the biggest reasons so many people fail with diets is because they believe they have to make major changes right out the gate.
When you take this type of approach it usually results in you taking no action at all.
Listen, we understand why people take this approach.
If you have tried hundreds of diets with zero results, this can leave you feeling jaded and frustrated.
Because you keep running into failure, the next go round you think you need to change everything all at once.
When you take this approach you make things a lot harder than they need to be.
Things don’t need to be 100% perfect for you to get results.
So instead of waiting for conditions to be just right, start with what you already have.
It doesn’t matter what’s going on in your life right now.
Decide to start.
If you continue to push it off, and you try to wait for the perfect time, you will never move the ball down the field.
So stop overthinking and get started today!
Always Enjoy Your Food
This is one of the most important mindset shifts you need to make.
Most people fail on their diets because they think they can no longer enjoy the foods they eat.
They literally force themselves to eat bland food all because they think that’s the way to get results.
When you don’t enjoy the foods you are eating, you will be more likely to revert back to your old eating habits.
The very habits that got you into this position in the first place.
Yes, you will need to make some changes to the way you eat if you are going to follow a keto diet.
However, that doesn’t mean you have to deny yourself and eat foods you hate.
The key is learning how to enjoy food according to the keto rules of eating.
Eating low carb can be somewhat restrictive. We are fully aware of that.
Learning to be a little creative in the kitchen can go long ways in helping you enjoy your meals.
Here are over 70 low carb meals you can make in 30 minutes or less.
Though simple, these three mindset shifts will set you up for great success on the keto diet.
No, it is not going to be easy to change the way you think.
It takes time and practice.
Don’t expect for things to change overnight.
You have to remember, you have been programmed to think a certain way your entire life.
Changing that thought process, is a big process.
So go easy on yourself.
Instead of looking at the keto diet as a diet, look at it as a lifestyle change.
You are changing the way you eat for the rest of your life. Not just temporarily.
That’s not to say you will be following the keto diet for the rest of your life.
Its just saying don’t view it as a temporary fix. View it as a step towards improving your health and well being.
