Many people start craving unhealthy things after a long period of dieting, and this could be your weak period. Just don’t fall and try to do unhealthy meals in an alternative healthy way without preventing yourself from what you love and crave. Always remember; Prevention leads to failure, so never prevent yourself from what you love, but keep your choices as healthy as possible. Try to make your plate full of all your needed nutrients; Proteins, Vitamins, Carbs and Healthy fats.
Always try to maintain your calorie intake per day more than worrying so much about what time do you take them. But keep in mind that maintaining a healthy lifestyle requires that you consume around 80% of your daily calorie intake during the day, and leave only 20% for the night so you could give yourself around 2-3 hours of successful digestion before sleeping.
Don’t be too harsh on yourself, don’t let your scale measure your success! Try to avoid measuring your weight on a regular basis as your weight might vary in few days; Water levels in your body varies, fat levels in your body varies, so your weight won’t be stable or constantly decreasing when dieting. Just use your scale monthly to monitor your successful changes.
