Many people begin a diet to lose weight and improve health as part of their new year’s resolutions. But, instead of making huge drastic changes, experts say that in order to stick to a successful weight loss plan it is best to not bite off more than you can chew – figuratively and literally. Here’s more:

Follow a Healthy Eating Plan

Plan your diet in advance. Do not wait to think about what you are going to eat until you are hungry and staring into your refrigerator or pantry.Your plan should include foods you enjoy along with plenty of healthy, natural foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, seafood, beans, and nuts. These satisfying foods have lots of fiber and will help to keep you feeling full longer. Also include lean proteins found in meat, fish, dairy, and soy.

Remember that your new diet begins at the grocery store. Planning all of your meals in advance will help you choose the right foods while shopping which will make it even easier to stick to your diet because you will have everything you need on hand.

Take it a day at a time, a meal at a time

Making small, gradual changes in your eating patterns is the best way to overhaul your diet. Some experts suggest making just one change each week to give you time to get used to the new behavior. Your ultimate goal is to establish new eating habits that can be sustained for a lifetime.
