Weight Loss Can Be Fast and Sustainable

Weight Loss Can Be Fast and Sustainable

The Pareto principle says that 80% of consequences stem from 20% of causes, aka, the 80/20 rule. This is true in many categories of your life, be that work, study, diet, habits, practically anything you can think of.  This principle can be used to help you lose weight fast!

Apply The Pareto Principle To Your Diet to Lose Weight

If you are overweight and want to see a remarkable change, just eliminate your biggest weakness.  When your weakness is just one thing (like sodas) it is a lot easier to remove than all things of that category (like all sweets).  If sodas are your weakness, get rid of them.  Find something you like to drink that has zero calories instead.  Surely there is something.  For me, this would be Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls.  These are very dangerous for me.  I like them so much, I run the risk of eating an entire box in a day!  So, I eliminate them and eat something I like (Oreos), but that I seem to have some control over.

Some people are sweet snackers, some are savory snackers, and some are beer drinkers.  So, if eliminating one item within these categories doesn’t do much for you because you have 50 other choices, you may need to eliminate the category itself.  You’ve been eating these things for years, so you may need to replace it with something healthy just to satisfy the habit.

The key to getting rid of your food weakness is discipline.  If you can’t master yourself, be sure that you know yourself.  That means don’t even bring it into the house if you know you won’t have the discipline to leave it alone.  If there are others in your household who want it in the house, ask them to help you be accountable.

It is the simplest thing to do.  Eliminate your food weakness, and you’ll definitely start losing weight.
