“The human body is a miraculous self-healing machine, but those self-repair systems require a nutrient-dense diet.” – Joel Fuhrman
When you are on diet, it is more of a battle everyday. What makes it even more arduous? You are fighting against your weaknesses. It could be your favorite food or habit, but now you have to look them as your enemies. Yes, it’s tough but you have to do it.
At times, people stand on the weighing machine and wish for the numbers to magically turn into the lean figures. Unfortunately, it seldom happens that you see the significant difference in early stages of your weight loss regime. For continuous motivation, you need to focus on routine changes.
Let’s check out the identifiers for your daily health check :
1.Meals Are Enjoyable & Not A Concern
When the constant urge to push in some ounces of food inside your belly at regular intervals ends, you start to make progress. It is uncomfortable and people often struggle with lethargy, tiredness and mild headache but if side effects don’t go away within a week, you are not on the right diet, my friend. Having said that, your body will adapt to the changes if you train it well. The mind and gut has a relationship to work on which triggers the satiation button to stop eating. Don’t let your gut rule over your mind and its exact evaluation of the energy that you’ve consumed. Always adhere to this – Anything extra will add a layer. Once you start to grow upon liking the food that goes down your belly, you’ll realize, high calorie food will make you cringe.
2.Energy Is A Science Concept & Well Portrayed By Your Body
It is definitely related to your body when you gulp down the food. Take them as the energy packages and you’ll know how they work. The thermodynamics remains same. Biological process needs energy from food and everything extra is stored in form of fats. Once you start to diet, you are eating more of “Working energy” and less or negligible “Stored Energy”. This makes you more energetic and less ennui.
3.Your Temperament Is At Level “Wile E. Coyote”
No matter how many times you’ve succumbed to your bad habits, you look past and continue to chase your dream like Wile E. Coyote from Looney Tunes. The feel good hormones are at rise and depressants reduce when you fill your body with only the needed nutritious food. Ask your family to rate your behavior and frequency of your anger attacks before and after the diet has started to have a clearer view.
4.The Fit Of Your Fitting Clothes
Are you getting crazy because of your wardrobe? Guess what? It’s a great news. Make your most fitted attire, the judge of your dieting. If it’s loose, you’re on your way to have the dream-like body sooner. Ladies, you can save your dates of menstruation which usually causes bloating in some women during their periods. For everyone else, get to the work everyday. If you are on weight gain diet, then the tighter it gets, the better it is.
5.Sleep Pattern Is A Roll On Perfect
Your body needs an average of 6-8 hours quality sleep everyday. If you no longer wrestle with sleeping disorder like insomnia, irregular pattern, etc, then thank your gut for accepting the diet you’re working on. In most cases, your biological cycles are directly proportional to the food you eat.
6.Gym Doesn’t Fright You Anymore
With energy flowing in your bones and muscles, you shouldn’t be afraid to show off some of your gained skills at gym. With your nutritious diet, you almost recover from muscle tear and fiber damage within a few hours itself. So, pick those extra “lbs” and workout a little more while your diet is working on your strength and endurance.
7.Your Dietary Plan Is No Longer An Onus
Everything sums down to you – Do you enjoy it? There is no point if your diet is not of your interest. You’re sooner or later going to ditch it. Save your efforts and indulge in the plan that suits your need as well as satisfies your stomach.
