When you aim to lose 20 pounds

Wanting to lose 20 pounds of weight is a great deal, but people dieting fall astray when they have such hefty resolutions. Instead of putting so much weight on your shoulders, focus on losing one pound a week by setting undersized exercise and diet goals.

When you plan on trying a diet

When you plan on going full diet mode which requires striking out one or more food groups that include grains, fruits and meat may prove unhealthy. A balanced eating requires lean meat that serves the purpose for long term weight loss.

Your plans of not eating at restaurants

Ditching your friends just for the heck of sustaining your strict diet regime would only frustrate you. Instead of boycotting your friends and your social life, have an apple or some almonds so that you don’t end up bursting on your craving and then probably start with small salads.

Going on a juice cleanse

After binging on your holiday, having a detox might just be the idea, but having a all-or-nothing approach towards losing weight will fail eventually.

Going on a vegetable diet

To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than that you consume, but skipping non-veg meals will not really cut your calorie intake.
