Starting your diet: Choose a suitable time
There is probably never a perfect time for a diet. However, it is usually not a good time to start during the Christmas season or before an upcoming family celebration. Often, in such situations, it tends to lead to frustration rather than energy and well-being. The start date for a diet must therefore be chosen wisely. However, one thing is clear: Don’t wait too long for the “perfect” time – otherwise you might miss it. The following tips can help you avoid problems at the start.
Name a specific day for your “official” starting date. Involve your family and friends in your plans too. This creates commitment and motivation – because nothing is as frustrating as a half-hearted diet attempt that stops after a short period of time.
A weekend without appointments and responsibilities is best – so you can start your diet calmly and experience the effects of Orlistat HEXAL® 60 mg.
Start a calorie- and fat-reduced diet a few days before taking the first capsule. This way, you and your body can gradually get used to your new eating habits.
Tip: Record your food intake – either on an app or in paper form – and note each day what, how much and when you eat. If you also write down your drinks and snacks, you will find it easier to stay on top of things. In addition, the notes will help you to recognise bad habits and small dietary sins and how to address them.
