If you are thinking of losing weight and are looking at weight loss plans there are certain things you must consider properly before committing yourself to one, otherwise you will end up moving from one plan to the next, an expensive process believe me. This is a checklist you should always use when deciding upon a weight loss plan, it's short but to the point and will save you a lot of wasted time further down the line.
1. Does the weight loss plan restrict too many of the foods you enjoy. If it does then it is not the plan for you. You may well start the weight loss plan with all good intentions but if it deprives you of all that you enjoy it will not be long before you find yourself cheating and as soon as you start down that slippery slope there is no return and you will straight back to square one.
So the first rule is to find a diet plan that will allow you to have some of your favorite foods, you will be less likely to come off the rails and more likely to succeed.
2. Don't go for a weight loss plan that is linked to a line of diet meals or shakes or weight loss pills. You may well succumb to the glossy sales pitch of remarkable results but it is all a front for an expensive range of products that will be pushed at you the whole time you are on the program.
If you have money to burn and are that lonely that the welcoming voice of a diet shake salesperson is heart warming to you then go ahead, otherwise steer clear, the best saleswoman out there is Mother Nature and her wares are a hell of a lot cheaper!
3. Support is vital and all good weight loss programs have a support network whether they are regular meetings, call centers, online forums or chat rooms. If the weight loss plan you are considering has none of these don't bother with it. You will need support at one time or another and a company that offers no support is only after selling you a product that probably doesn't work and that is why they do not want to stay around and chat!
So there you have it, quite straight forward but a checklist to finding the right weight loss plan for you. Never get suckered in by the promise of results if you have to compromise on one of the above as you will be destined to failure.
