8. Be consistent
No diet needs to be perfect to get good results. Data from the US Weight Control Registry — which tracks the progress of more than 5000 Americans who have lost more than 15kg and kept it off — has shown that consistency is the key when it comes to weight control.This means a one off treat is not the issue when it comes to weigh gain. The problem is what you are having for breakfast, lunch and dinner most days of the week.
