The 8 Stages Of 'Dieting'

For those of us who aren't so great at making changes.

The 8 Stages Of 'Dieting'

At some point in everyone's life, they realize "I should probably eat better" and attempt to go on a "diet." For some people, it's a total lifestyle change that they can keep and manage for the rest of their lives. If that's you, I say good on you. Others of us try to do too much too soon and wind up hungry, cranky and disappointed.

Here are the eight stages of a diet.

1. Excitement

"Yes! I can do this! I'm going to be super healthy and it's going to be so easy."

2. Confusion

"Can I eat this? What about this? Is this healthy?"

3. Disgust

"Ugh, I can't believe people choose to make kale for dinner."

4. Re-invigorated

"Just a small hiccup in the road, I've got this."

5. More Confusion

"What can I actually eat?"

6. The Inevitable Trip to McDonalds/Arby's/Cookout/Chick-fil-a

"Yeah, I'll have a number 2 please."

"That'll be $4.32"

"$4.32 and my dignity."

7. More Disgust

"I can't believe I ate that."

8. Convenient Ignorance

"What diet?"

Some of us just weren't meant for the diet world.
