Anytime you start a diet, or even if you’re just maintaining one, be sure you’re aware of some dieting don’ts that can save you some heartache along the way.

It’s exciting when you find a diet that works and satisfies you, but for some women, diets are both a drag and a health risk all in one.

Be sure you avoid some dieting don’ts if you’re looking to lose weight, and in no time the pounds will drop without you having to feel deprived or depleted!

1. Too Few Calories

One of the top dieting don’ts of them all is to eat too few calories.

If you are constantly cold or always feeling weak, these are two signs you’re not eating enough and that your metabolism has slowed down to conserve fat for fuel.2

In fact, eating more healthy sources of calories can actually help you lose more weight instead of gain it - lucky you!

2. Fear of Food

Fearing food not only leads to insufficient calorie intake, but also a warped mindset around food.

Remember, food is fuel for your body that allows you to have the energy to do the things you love.

Embrace nourishing your body, not depriving it out of fear.

3. Low Blood Sugar

When your blood sugar gets so low that you become shaky, moody, and starving, two things happen: First, your body goes into fat-storing mode, and two, your insulin levels skyrocket and then nosedive minutes later leaving you weak and exhausted.

Not fun, right?

To prevent this health tragedy, be sure you eat whole sources of food every 3-4 hours.

4. Lack of Sleep

Getting too little sleep is also a major dieting don’t if you want to lose some serious weight.

Sleep allows your hormones to “do their thing” and increase fat-burning around the clock.

Without at least 7 hours, you’re setting yourself up for overeating, fat-storing, and cravings just by getting too little shut-eye.

So go to bed already!
