What would you do if you wanted to run a 5K race? That’s 3.1 miles. So what would you do? And don’t use the old line, “you’d lie down until the urge goes away.” Well, first off you’d probably prepare—mentally as well as physically. You’d train, wouldn’t you? You’d train real hard and as smart as you can, making sure you didn’t put too much pressure on yourself to do things you weren’t ready for.
If you have weight to lose, this is how to diet too. Don’t be so desperate to lose weight that you plunge right into a diet without a period of preparation first. Training for weight loss can be just like you’d train for a 5K race. Not only will you need to build up your stamina and endurance, you will also be working on how to stay motivated to lose weight.
To make sure you have the weight loss success you want, bear in mind that it’s best to put in the time and effort and prepare for how to diet just like you would if you were running a long distance race.
