In previous attempts, there were times I was worried about the calories in toothpaste. I would have had to answer yes to many of your perfectionism descriptions. This time,I am not expecting perfection and have allowed myself treats along the way. Sparks has been very helpful to me in changing the "all or nothing" kind of mind set I've been guilty of in the past.

If diet after diet "fails" you, ask yourself these 7 questions to identify the problem and change your habits for good
When you're given a task, do you either do it the right way or not at all? Do you strive for perfection in life, whether it's keeping an immaculate home or arriving everywhere early? And do you bring the same exacting standards to your diet plan?

Being a perfectionist dieter is "the all-or-nothing mentality," says Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association and the author of The Flexitarian Diet. "Real life is just not conducive to this perfect-eating attitude."

The desire for perfection can be learned from your parents or from living in a culture obsessed with beauty and wealth. You are reminded on a daily basis what you could have or look like if you just worked a little harder and had more self-control.

Whenever you start a new weight loss program, it's normal to want to follow the rules exactly. You trust that if you do so, you'll be successful in melting off unwanted pounds. You’re convinced that this approach is the right one--until you hit the familiar speed bumps, such as overindulging with pals at an after-work happy hour, and your resolve comes to a grinding halt.

If you can answer yes to several of these questions, you might be a perfectionist dieter:

1. Do you typically begin your new program on a Monday?
2. Do you use the words good and bad to describe certain foods and your eating behavior?
3. Do you typically want to speed up the process by eating less than your program suggests to reach your goal?
4. Do you expect to suffer, feeling starved and deprived?
5. Do you expect to completely eliminate your favorite foods?
6. Do you fall off the wagon and throw in the towel after making just one unhealthy food choice?
7. Are you convinced that past failed attempts were due to lack of effort and/or staying focused?

If these patterns and attitudes sound familiar, you may be unnecessarily setting yourself up for failure. The good news? You can successfully lose weight and keep it off without dieting "perfectly" and trying to follow a plan to the letter. Follow these 7 weight loss solutions and you'll escape the perfectionist trap once and for all!
