Common Diet Traps Can Ruin Even The BEST Intentions
In this short article I will give you 5 tips on how to get your game-face on and avoid the most common diet traps so you can become a success.
Map out an Action Plan
First and foremost, if you don’t outline a plan of action you may as well stop dead in your tracks now. To get to ANY destination you need a written outline and the more clear and more precise you can make it, the easier it will be to meet your fitness goal.
An easy way to test your figure competition prep abilities is to enter an online body transformation contest. Many of the online challenges come complete with prizes including cash, supplements, clothing, trips, etc. It’s a win-win situation for you… You get in shape and have a chance at prizes.
Get an Accountability Partner
What makes a figure prep diet and training program manageable is simply to know you are not going through it alone. Having a partner check-in on your or workout with you can give you a huge advantage in your success rate.
Hire a Figure Coach
While having an accountability partner is helpful, nothing beats the trained-eye and support of a reputable figure coach. Look for an established figure coach with history including before and after success stories, testimonials, and even articles. Be sure to search them on Google and find out all you can.
Check Your Progress Weekly
A good figure prep plan can show results weekly in either stats (weight and body fat), how clothing fits, how you look in the mirror, and photo and video comparisons. Keep in mind that in the beginning you can gain muscle and lose fat at the same time, which can blur the scale weight, but you will see and feel the difference in photos and how clothing fit.
The simple act of putting these 5 easy steps into action can literally transform your body in as little as 21 days. The longer you keep it in action, the better and better you will look and feel.
