Here’s another easy trick for successful long term weight loss.
…save room for dessert.
It’s a simple strategy, but it works.
I don’t really count carbs or fats. I count protein and calories, and even then, most of it is a guess.
But that’s just me, really it doesn’t matter what it you count, this trick is the same – save some of your calories / carbs / fats for dessert.
Whatever you count, save some of it for dessert.
My choice is usually mint chocolate chip ice-cream. I don’t go crazy with it – A cup of ice-cream in the evening is all I need to not feel like I’m depriving myself.
Give me a pint of Guinness at dinner and a bowl of ice-cream before bed and I can be 100% on track with the rest of my eating for months and months.
Deprivation kills consistency, and consistency is where your results come from.
If a diet isn’t sustainable, it’s not going to work.
