When you’re on a personal quest to get healthy and lose weight, it’s important to plan for success. Here are some key traps and pitfalls to look out for on the road to healthy eating and weight loss.

One of the primary motivators for eating junk food is cost. After being accustomed to the low cost of junk food a healthy diet may seem like a financial burden. But, actually you can get a salad at McDonald's for less than a burger meal and there are many affordable whole foods at the supermarket.

Once you’re eating healthy, it can be difficult to stick to your new diet plan when you are socializing with friends, family, or colleagues where you may be tempted to break your diet, therefore you may need to re-think your social environment, especially in the beginning.

It can be tough to make a dramatic change in your lifestyle and that is why getting support from family and friends is so important. It will help maintain your motivation if a friend or family member is also eating healthy right along with you, but even if they’re not; their continued support will serve you well and take out the anxiety of change until healthy eating becomes a habit.

So, you’ve been eating a healthy diet for a little while and weighing yourself regularly. The problem is that the pounds just aren’t falling off as quickly as you’d like them to. First, make sure that you have a sound diet and exercise plan, and then stick with it, it will happen and it’s well worth the wait!

When we think about weight loss, we may fall victim to fad diets that are full of magical promises with little lasting results. You don’t need a fad diet, make healthy eating habit changes, and follow a balanced and nutritious diet that can bring you permanent success.

Sometimes, in the quest for weight loss, we actually starve ourselves and our diets lack nutrients the body needs. Your body needs a certain number of calories daily to function optimally; the key is to create a calorie deficit so you burn more than you eat every day. Starvation is never a smart route to weight loss.

Just when you think you’re eating healthy food, you end up feeling drained and tired. One trap that many fall into when changing their eating habits is not following a balanced diet that includes all the vital nutrients the body needs to thrive. Eat a wide variety of whole food to prevent this problem.

Be smart, plan ahead and revel in your weight loss success!
