Staying motivated is a challenge for many activities, including weight loss. Maintaining weight loss motivation while shopping for food needs is important for those who really do want to take off and keep off excess pounds.
Here are a few easy to remember tips to boost weight loss motivation when grocery shopping:
1) Incorporate the help of friends. Even an occasional reminder can stick with you for long after the moment. For example, you are craving "diet" chocolate. Your friend reminds you that you were going to not buy that product. Later the same day, you are in the grocery store, looking at the diet candy. You look again at the ingredients and sugar or fat content, but put the item back. Your friend's words are clearly being repeated in your mind, making it much easier to put that item back.
2) Read labels. Once you are aware of sugar gram, fat gram and calorie counts, it is much easier to decide to select the food product that have lower numbers.
3) Enjoy feeling the pride inside as you bypass high calorie items and skip entire aisles of tempting foods, like candy, the deli, or the frozen food department.
4) Never shop while hungry.
Stay in touch with your feelings when shopping for food. Use your memory to pull out any nutritional information you remember for continual weight loss motivation.
