Stick to the Plan
It can be easy to lapse into old habits, especially after a long day or an exhausting gym routine. Don’t be tempted to treat yourself too early, Giosa says. “At the beginning, stick to a strict, healthy diet and workout regime. And then a month later, you can start treating yourself a little more,” she says. “After you’ve built up your muscle base and have lost some excess weight, you can indulge more because your metabolism is a lot higher than it used to be."
