Be inspired by our collection of Diet Quotes. There's an old saying "You can't outrun a bad diet!". If you're trying to lose weight, you'll have to develop new habits of eating well - as well as upping your exercise levels. This is because what you consume must be balanced by what you burn off each day.
Before we get to the Diet Quotes, here are some tips from me to help encourage you: Celebrate small victories (lost a pound? that's great!); Don't beat yourself up for making a few slip-ups (moving onwards and upwards!), Drink TONS of water (it helps!) and - most importantly - keep to a routine that you can maintain over the medium to long term. The reason most 'fad diets' don't work is because people make things too tough and use up all their will power too soon. If you tack a new habit onto an old one (e.g. each time you go to the bathroom, get out your phone and record everything you ate and drank since the last time), it gets easier. Tracking your consumption, eating well and having a healthy long term attitude to food will help you get off the diet treadmill and 'live healthy and well!' Enjoy these Diet Quotes; you can do this!

Motivational Quotes About Life
There are many good reasons to exercise. But to stick to an exercise routine day in and day out, you need more than good reasons. You need a mission—one powerful reason to get your butt off the couch when that little voice inside sats, "I don't wanna." When you find that reason, you will find your motivation.
Keri Gans, The Small Change Diet
A fitness or workout program without a sound diet or the motivation/reason to do it will be much harder to accomplish successfully.
