The Keys for Diet Success

The little things make all the difference

keys to diet success

Whatever date you’ve decided to make Day One of the Diet, you may know from past experience that just the anticipation of going on a diet can make you do things you ordinarily would never do—like take a serving spoon to a gallon of ice cream before the clock strikes midnight on the eve of D(iet) Day. It’s a fact that the thought of going on a diet and its anticipated deprivation can trigger the mother of all binges. There’s even a name for it: Last Supper Effect.

We want to put your mind at ease right from the get-go: You don’t have to worry about deprivation on the 7 Years Younger Diet. You’ll enjoy a variety of foods, so you won’t feel hungry or deprived. It was designed for you to experience a new way of eating, one that you’ll love and want to continue for a lifetime. Two tricks to start—and stay committed:

Make a contract with yourself
Making a commitment and keeping those words in mind gives you a big mental edge in your ability to stick with it. A Dominican University of California study that examined the success of goal setters found that those who wrote down their aspirations were more likely to reach them than people who merely made mental vows. Photocopy your pledge and post it somewhere visible to inspire yourself—on your bathroom mirror, on the refrigerator, your desktop or computer screen, wherever you'll see it often.

Pick a pal to diet with
Multiple studies have found that dieters who buddy up are more likely to stick with their regimens and lose more weight than those who go it alone. They also have less trouble keeping it off. Diet buddies are mentally connected. Research shows that they truly support each other, offering encouragement when one hits a rough patch, and celebrating together when victories are achieved.
