The enemy of a successful diet is boredom. That little rut can happen anytime but it is more likely to happen when you are bored. The problem is that it is very easy to become focussed on doing the same thing every day because let us face the fact that these good habits are what got you where you are today.

Focusing on establishing good habits can be helpful, but it can also create that stagnation that will make you lose focus and slip up. A change to the program that adds new, but still healthy habits and breaking away from the same thing every day will create variety and maintain change. Boredom can make you crave variety and lead to you interrupt your routine and grasping for those bad habits that cause you to gain weight the first time.

Constancy can also create mindlessness. Being mindful of what you need to do can assist you in maintaining your diet. Some of the distracting tasks are more harmful than good so you have to choose wisely. Watching TV nay keep your interest and entertain you, but eating while doing it will not helo weight loss. On the converse side, changing the foods you eat or altering your exercise plan can keep you interested.
