First of all what not to do – panic! It may be tempting to opt for a short term crash diet after indulging this Easter, but this will not be beneficial in the long run. They are aptly named, as although they may get you the quick result you desire, the benefits will be short-lived. It will not be sustainable in the long run, and will most likely be accompanied by an array of unwanted, negative side-effects.
Opting for a quick fix plan often is actually more difficult to stick to and the likelihood of experiencing negative effects on both your physical and mental energy levels is high. This will translate into your daily life, making things like getting up in the morning or getting through a chaotic day at work 10x harder. Add feeling hungry and surviving off energy dense foods devoid of any nutritional value, which go hand in hand with these fads and you’ll soon realise there are better roads to take.
Crash diets also tend to encourage an unhealthy relationship with your body, as well as disordered eating behaviour that can make you obsessed with the number on the scales, rather than the bigger picture. Ultimately methods of this kind lead to inconsistent results.
Below are a few simple tips to get yourself back on the right path:
1. Eat Regularly
2. Drink Plenty of water
3. Get enough sleep
4. Don’t skip meals
5. Get moving (at Ride Republic!)
