“There’s never a good time to start a diet.”
I couldn't disagree more.
Specifically, regarding the Ideal Protein weight loss method, there are better and worse times to begin our simultaneously restrictive and freeing program. Is there a wedding or a reunion several weeks away—might be a good time. Is there a vacation or triathlon in your near future—terrible time.
The reason is, Ideal Protein is going to require something great of you—the desire and the endurance to change fundamental eating and drinking patterns. You will have to set aside many habits for the duration of weight loss and afterward, reform those patterns to maintain your healthy weight.
Is it difficult? At times the diet is extremely difficult. It requires commitment, sacrifice and discipline yet other times it’s effortless because the diet allows your body to work with you, instead of against you. Either way, it’s always worth it. Whether you finally get that last 10 pounds off, or 50 or 150 you've earned a sense of freedom and accomplishment that words can’t really describe.
There are 18 weeks until Thanksgiving 2013. Those 18 weeks are going to pass one way, or another. Another way to pass them would be to lose 50 pounds (women) or 70 pounds (men), conservatively and enter the holiday, more importantly the New Year with a resolution already met. Since Christmastime is the best example of the worst time to start Ideal Protein, why not do it beforehand?
