Put Some Personality into Your Diet

Make Your Diet Fit You...Not the Other Way Around


Are you a "Fast Fueler" and an "Adventure Seeker?" Or are you an "Independent Thinker" with some "Emotional Eater" tendencies?

Most people have no idea. But knowing the answer may give you an advantage over your weight loss goals that you didn’t have before. Whatever struggles or roadblocks you face, if you know your personality well, you’ll know how to react in a way that works.

SparkPeople has developed two quick and easy Personality Profiler quizzes that can come in handy when you need help the most:

The path to weight loss is different for everyone. We have different tendencies, tastes, preferences, and doubts. Low-fat diets may work, but if your downfall has always been too many sugary carbs, you’d be looking in the wrong place. Spinning workouts may have helped your neighbor lose 30 pounds, but if you’d rather be outdoors, it may not be right for you.

People who ignore this principle ignore the realities of who they are and what motivates them. It’s no wonder that diets and workout programs usually make people feel intimidated, uncomfortable and frustrated.

To be successful, your program has to stay true to who you are and fit your personality. This is true right down to the individual meal and workout choices you make. If your daily dieting and fitness actions ignore your nature, how likely are they to become habits or permanent parts of your lifestyle? Not very.

Take these fun profile quizzes today. 10 minutes now can save you a lot of trouble, failure and self-doubt in the future. Knowing yourself is the first step to knowing how to succeed this time around.
