Help Yourself Succeed by Getting Support
Imagine that you are trying to avoid white rice and someone sitting next to you is enjoying a hot bowl of white rice with your favourite curry on top. Annoying, isn’t it? Perhaps even insensitive? One very important key to successfully losing weight is to find yourself a good support system.
- Educate your friends, family, and coworkers about your struggle with weight. Inform them about the foods you are trying to cut out of your diet. Some of them may even join you or will at least not eat such foods in front of you. This will help remove temptation. It's much easier to avoid something when it’s out of sight. If you can, surround yourself with people who are willing to help and support you.
