There are many things that you can do to help you stay on track while you are dieting. First thing you need to remember is to accept yourself and love yourself for who you are and stop beating yourself up over being overweight. This will go a long way in helping you get through your diet. If you are comfortable with who you are no matter what, those rough moments when you slip off the diet won’t be such a big deal.

One of the most important things that you can do is watch the amount of water you drink and make sure it is enough especially when you are exercising.

Reward yourself when you do well or meet a goal. This goes a long way towards keeping you motivated to continue. Write down your goals starting with little ones that you can accomplish quickly. Avoid the obvious like chocolate and alcohol. Snack on nuts when you do feel the need for a snack. Nuts are cholesterol free and full of nutrients that will help your heart. Eat negative calories, which mean foods that take more calories to digest than they are worth like Brussels sprouts, broccoli, carrots, celery, apples, kiwi’s celery and strawberries.
