How To Stop Diet Cheating Starting Now

Let’s be honest, most of us do it often.

Yup, we cheat on our diets and use a bunch of bad excuses to justify it to ourselves.

That’s why I have outlined seven of the most common bad excuses for diet cheating.

This list of 7 bad excuses will help us recognize when we’re about to cheat and hopefully stop us dead in our tracks. Let’s get to it.

Bad Excuse #1:
If no one sees me eat something bad, it’s not really all that bad.

Yeah, it’s bad. The truth is we just say this so we feel less guilty about eating badly.

Bad Excuse #2:
If I have a diet drink with a bad junk meal, I’m better off.

No! ‘Diet drinks’ are a scam, and nothing makes a bad junk meal okay. The truth is we just say this so we feel less guilty about eating bad.

Bad Excuse #3:
If I eat badly along with someone else it’s okay and we sort of cancel each other out.

Wrong! We even tell toddlers that two wrongs don’t make a right. The truth is we just say this so we feel less guilty about eating bad.

Bad Excuse #4:
Everyone needs some bad comfort food sometimes.

Nope! Babies need comfort. We need to lose weight and get fit. The truth is we just say this so we feel less guilty about eating bad.

Bad Excuse #5:
Sometimes I’m running late and the bad food drive-thru is all that’s available so I have to eat bad food, or I’ll starve.

Sorry! Nobody ever starved to death from missing one meal. Besides, there is usually at least one SOMEWHAT healthy meal available at the bad food drive-thru.

The truth is we just say this so we feel less guilty about eating bad.

Bad Excuse #6:
Event foods like popcorn at the movies, or hot dogs at a baseball game, don’t count because they’re part of the experience.

Nice try, but it’s a no go. There’s no rule that makes it absolutely necessary to eat bad foods at certain events. The truth is we just say this so we feel less guilty about eating bad.

Bad Excuse #7:
If the label says ‘fat free’ I can eat as much as I want because it’s free from fat.

Oh boy, not even close. ‘Free fat’ is basically a scam and no matter what any label says no one should eat as much as they want of anything. The truth is we just say this so we feel less guilty about eating bad.

Overall, the only reason we make these bad excuses for cheating on our diets is so we will feel less guilty about our behavior. That’s it!

We’re just attempting to justify doing something we know is wrong. That’s the whole deal.

So, in the end the only thing we really need to come to terms with is that we won’t lose the weight, or get as fit as we want, until our desire to do so eclipses our pull to make bad excuses for diet cheating.

The next time we’re confronted with making bad excuses for diet cheating, will we do it? Or will we be strong enough to push ourselves past the drive-thru?

We always have that choice between doing what we know is right, or using bad excuses to justify doing something we know is wrong.

So let’s all start making less bad excuses, and more better choices, today.

That’s ultimately how to stop diet cheating while further tapping into our inborn power.

This will bring us closer to living as the most complete version of ourselves immediately.
