I have got a new idea for permanent dieting success.

Lately, I have been thinking about dieting and why people fail, and if you have watched my previous video’s about how to avoid junk food, it is kind of along the same concept and line.

The reason, why I believe, that most people fail on their diet is because they say…

“Starting Monday, I am going to do everything perfect.  I am not going to cheat on my diet, it is going to be great.  I am going to continue on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and for the rest of the month – it is going to be awesome, it is going to be perfect, I am never going to fail.”

Have you ever said this before?

However, you are good on Monday, by Tuesday – you know, you get the jitters, and by Wednesday you want to headbutt the wall.

Before you know it, you are off your diet, and then you say…

“Look, I will give myself a few days grace.  On Monday, I am going to have another crack, but this time I am going to make sure I am going to do it right.”

We just simply keep repeating this process.

The reason, why I believe, this happens is because it is too much, it is too consuming, it is too overwhelming, and it is too soon.  We are probably just not ready for a ‘perfect dieter’ yet.

If you think about when you started exercising, I bet you when you started you said…

“Look, this week, I am going to probably train 2 or 3 times this week.  Then in week 2 or 3, I am going to add in another session.  Then in week 3 or 4, I am going to add in another session.”

You continue along this path until maybe you get to training every day.

But when it comes to our diet, we think, “Well, starting Monday, I am going to get everything right for the rest of the week.  I am going to have the best diet for the week, and then continue in week 2, week 3, and week 4.”

For most people, we last about 3 days, and then we fall off the wagon.

Again, it is because we are setting ourselves up for failure.  If you don’t do it with your fitness regime when you started, so why should we do it with our diet?

If this is you, then keep on reading…

I am going to put this all up on the whiteboard for you, and give you the new 6 week diet plan which will allow you to have greater dieting success.

Here, is the new 6 week diet plan.

Remember what I said before, the reason why most people fail on their diet is that they are trying to do everything from the get-go.

They say, “Starting Monday, I am going to do all of this right,” and they just drain themselves.  They are completely confused, they are too overwhelmed, it is too much, and it is too soon.

Come Wednesday, they are off their diet.  Then, they put their hand up and say…

“Hey, after the weekend, come Monday, I am going to do it all over again, and I will make sure I get it right.”  We just keep repeating the process.

Rather than falling into that trap, here is what you are going to do instead…

What you are going to do in week 1, is you are going to pick 1 day in the week where you are going to have what we will call a “best dieting day.”

You need to get everything right.

You are not going to slip up, you are not going to cheat.

You are just going to get it right.

The cool thing is that for the rest of the week (the other 6 remaining days of the week) you can do whatever you want.

From a results point of view – from a fat-loss results point of view, is this great?  No, probably not.

However, long-term is this going to work?  Yes, and you will see why in a second…

Now, in week 2, you are going to pick 2 days, non-consecutive days – don’t try to do it in a row. 

Pick 2 days, Monday and Thursday for example, where you are going to have a perfect dieting day.

The other five days, we can call them off days.  That is where you can do whatever you want.

If you want to have a few healthy meals here and there great, but if you feel like having whatever, do it.

Go for it! I am encouraging you for this.

Again, this is not about the short-term success, this is about the long-term.

In week 3 (you are probably seeing where I am going with this) you are going to pick 3 days, non-consecutive days, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for example.

The other days, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, you can do whatever you want – they are your off days.

If we continue along this fashion, here is what we get…

By week 4, you are going to do 4 days.  Four perfect dieting days, and 3 off days.

In week 5, you are going to have 5 perfect dieting days, and 2 off days.

Come week 6, you are going to have 6 perfect days, and 1 off day.

I would say, that once you have reached week 6, you will continue with that momentum of having 6 great days, and 1 off day – consider that your cheat day.

I have found that this has been the best success in terms of results point of view, and for just keeping you sane.

The 6 Week Diet Plan [In a Nut Shell]

Week 1: 1 "perfect diet day" / 6 "off days"

Week 2: 2 "perfect diet days" / 5 "off days"

Week 3: 3 "perfect diet days" / 4 "off days"

Week 4: 4 "perfect diet days" / 3 "off days"

Week 5: 5 "perfect diet days" / 2 "off days"

Week 6: 6 "perfect diet days" / 1 "off day"

If you know that, “Hey, come Sunday it is your cheat day,” – for me I call it hog smash day.  That is when you can eat whatever you want.  You are going to be far more successful at sticking to this diet long-term.

However, if you try to do this week 6 in week 1, it is not going to work.  It is too much, it is too confusing, it is too overwhelming, and it is too soon.  You are not ready.

If you start with week 1, like I said it is not the greatest, it is not the sexiest, and in fact you are probably not going to get the best fat-loss results at all.

If you think long-term, and if you build up to week 6, and you stick with week 6, for week 7, week 8, all the way through to however long you want to stay in check for.

I can guarantee that you are going to have far better success with this.

We have all done it before.  We have all been there, and you know exactly what I am talking about.

There you have it.  There is the 6 week dieting plan.

Let me know how you go.
