1. Do not skip meals.
One of the most common mistakes that people make when they go on a diet is skipping meals. It seems to make sense when you eat less, you 'll lose weight, but that is only true when you keep your food intake consistent. According to the National Institutes of Health, when you eat less than two meals a day, your body is not supplied with enough fuel and ultimately will fail to maintain a normal blood sugar level. As the result, you will feel fatigued. Other than having low energy levels, you might end up eating more after skipping a meal and that will make you gain weight while not having enough nutrients. Instead of eating one or two big meals a day, you should eat 5-6 small meals. If you 're not as determined or don 't have enough time to eat 5-6 small meals, you have to eat a breakfast, a lunch, a snack, and a dinner.

8. Eat the food you love, less frequently and in a smaller quantities
Being strict on yourself when you try to be healthier is determination but you still can indulge and have a treat once or twice a week. You should think of ice cream, donuts, pizza, etc., as rewards for your hard work and commitment. If you are invited to many social events that involve foods and drinks, planning your previous meals ahead will allow you to have a cheat meal on Friday night, eat a piece of cake at your friend 's birthday, or drink a beer with your coworkers. Moreover, it will be fun for you to explore and experiment alternative and healthier recipes of the foods you love. You eat to live and you live to eat so what you need to aim for is balance.
