Ben Leber’s Tips for Sticking to a Diet and Exercise Routine

When people start a new diet or exercise routine, they often stick to it for a few weeks. Then, they start slipping into old habits. Ben Leber, a former professional football player and BiPro user, has three tips for sticking to a new diet or exercise regimen:

  1. Keep it simple and fun
    Don’t shoot for a goal that’s too lofty. If you keep your goals simple, you’re more likely to reach them and steadily better yourself instead of getting frustrated.
    “Remember to also keep things fun. If you don’t like running, find a different cardio workout that you enjoy. It’s much easier to work out when you’re doing something that you find truly enjoyable,” Leber said. 
     
  2.  Find a friend
    Embarking on a new diet or exercise routine with a friend can really help you stay accountable.
    “I box twice per week at 6 a.m. Sometimes, when my alarm goes off early in the morning, I don’t want to get out of bed,” Leber said. “But then I get a text from my boxing buddy, telling me he’s on his way to the gym. That helps me stay motivated.”
     
  3. Cheats are ok
    Just because you’re starting to eat healthier doesn’t mean you have to cut out all of your vices. Leber loves eating potato chips while he watches football.
    “If you really want to eat or drink something unhealthy from time to time, then do it: reward yourself,” Leber said. “But when you do indulge, do so in moderation and really enjoy it.”
