Day 1 on Juice Diet: 4 Ways to Kick-Start Weight Loss

As Christmas is around the corner, I decided to start a short period of diet - 10 Days Fruit Juice diet. I was thinking that this could be a great kickstart to my long term weight loss plan. I must say that sticking to a diet plan to lose weight is never easy.

How discouraging it can be when a friend manage to lose weight on a particular diet plan, whereas when you tried it, you gained weight. A wrong strategies might be the reason why you can't lose weight. Fitness Magazine shows 4 tactics how to fix your effort to lose weight.

1. Make Ambitious Exercise Goals
Plan to exercise every day, even if you know you won't make it. According to research from the College of Public Health and Health Professions at the University of Florida in Gainesville, most of us accomplish only 60 percent of our weekly fitness goals. So if you plan to work out for an hour every day, you'll probably make it to three or four workouts a week.

2. Keep Your Diet Simple
Instead of eating out, prepare dinners at home. "Too much variety actually stimulates your appetite," explains Hollie A. Raynor, PhD, RD, assistant professor of research at Brown Medical School in Providence. "If you're faced with a ton of options, you'll likely eat more just out of curiosity."

3. Order First
Be the one to place an order when you're dining out. Choose healthier food like salad and grilled fish. Otherwise you'll tend to follow if everyone is ordering the burger and fries. "You can be influenced by other people's food decisions," says Gerard J. Musante, PhD, a clinical psychologist and founder of Structure House, a residential weight-loss center in Durham, North Carolina.

4. Take Eight (Hours)
Lack of sleep will lowers the level of the hormone leptin -- this can increase your desire to eat and decrease your ability to burn calories. To lose or maintain weight, there's an ideal sleep zone of about eight hours a night, say researchers.
