6. Beware of elimination diets
For most people, taste trumps nutrition. If you’re drawn to high-fat and sugary foods, eliminating them from your diet might seem sensible. However, most people fall out with these types of diets when restricted foods become irresistible. Instead of eliminating these foods altogether, use them in moderation or eat them less often. As you incorporate other healthy foods in your diets, you’ll have an easier time letting the bad foods go.
