How do you know if your diet is working? Like most people you’ve probably started a diet, but were not intentional enough on tracking progress toward your weight loss goal. And somewhere along the way you lose interest due to your lack of progress. With The Action Diet program you can start today on a successful journey. Allow a simple Excel spreadsheet to give you the feedback you need to remain on track towards your goal.
There are literally dozens of diet and exercise plans that will help you lose weight. The Action Diet supplements your favorite nutrition and exercise program, keeping you honest and on target. By tracking your progress daily, and taking rigorous action when required, any diet you choose will get you there.
Enter your weight each morning in the spreadsheet. The Action Diet program will tell you each day what actions to take to reach your goal. You’ll see one of three messages each day:
|EAT NORMAL||Follow regular diet and exercise. You are reaching your Goal!|
|MODERATE||You are on target, but careful here!|
So what does “Take Action!” mean? For me it meant two changes to my ‘normal’ plan; 1) Nutrition Shakes (no solid foods), and 2) Increased Cardio.
Increasing cardio could be additional time on the treadmill, an extra walk or jog, and/or taking the stairs at work instead of the elevator. As you move along toward your goal you will learn how much extra cardio is necessary to get back on track.
Using The Action Diet program I lost 30 pounds this past year. My ‘normal’ eating plan was healthier, more portion-controlled meals than I had been eating. When I needed to take action, the nutrition shakes and additional cardio got me back on track. Nutritional shakes aren’t always much fun to prepare or consume. But it takes a little drastic action every now and then to reach your goals. My goal was always to get back to ‘eating normal’. Your body needs the feedback that ‘we are going to lose the weight!’. Send your body this signal and it will respond. Extra cardio, along with the shakes provided the environment necessary to get back on track towards my goal.
Here’s an example of The Action Diet program at work:
The spreadsheet draws your weight loss journey as a sloped line on your personalized chart. Weigh yourself every day and watch your progress as a new dot on the graph. If your dot is below the trend line, you’re on track! If your dot is above the line, you’re at risk of missing your goal. The spreadsheet tells you each day what action is necessary to reach your weight loss target.
Every diet you go on takes commitment to be successful. But without measuring where you are on a daily basis you are not set up to succeed. Weighing in once a week leaves too much room for error or excuses. The Action Diet will become a simple part of your daily routine.
