Are you on a diet and still wondering if it's doing any good? Read these signs below and see if this diet you are trying is really working!

1. You Feel Healthy ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you’ve stopped feeling sluggish, there’s a good chance your body has started to adjust to your new healthy eating. If you haven’t, try taking a multivitamin, and checking that you aren’t cutting out any of the main nutrients or food groups.

2. You do Not Get Food Cravings ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Cravings often mean that your body is missing something, so when these disappear, you are on the right track!

3. You Are in a Good Mood ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Being in a naturally good mood means that your hormones are in line, which is hard to do! If you’re feeling grouchy, check that your diet isn’t too strict, and that you aren’t wearing yourself down.

4. You Are Starting to Lose Weight ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Are you starting to lose some pounds? This is the best, and most obvious, sign that your diet is going to plan.

5. Friends and Family Are Making Complements ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

One of the ways I know I’m looking good is when my family and friends start to notice my efforts. This should be something you aim for, and treat yourself when you get there!

6. You Feel Good about What You Are Eating ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Are you happy with your diet? Most people are a little ashamed of what they eat behind closed doors, so if you are feeling proud, you can be confident you’re eating the best things.

7. You do Not Think about Food All the Time ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

One of my favorite mantra’s is that you should eat to live, not live to eat. If you are achieving this, reward yourself! It can be really difficult to change your thinking, and this is a sign that your healthy living is a permanent change.

8. You Are Not Desperate for the Next Meal ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you starving before the next meal, your diet is probably lacking in something, or you are simply eating far too little. This isn’t good, as your body will hang on to calories, so rethink your diet plan and see what you can change.

9. You Easily Go to Sleep at Night ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Getting to sleep can be difficult, especially if you are feeling bloated, so if you can nod off naturally, it’s a very good sign. If you are struggling, try taking a bath or reading a book, and if that doesn’t work, check that you are getting enough essential nutrients every day.

10. You Are Content with Yourself ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Feeling content? This tends to happen around the end of a diet, when you are getting down to a good weight and are happy with your eating/exercise plan. This is brilliant, so make sure you appreciate it!

11. Your Body Seems to Get Lighter ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Are you feeling lighter? No matter what the scales say, you’ll feel the lack of fat and it’s a brilliant feeling. This is something you can’t influence, so if you haven’t achieved it yet, don’t worry.

12. You Want to Drink More Water ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Water is very healthy, and knowing that you are thirsty and not hungry is a breakthrough for most dieters. If you are craving water, however, try to up how much you are drinking through the day, as lack of water can cause water retention and bloating.

13. You Feel like Shopping for Something Pretty ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

One of the signs I’m at the end of the diet is a sudden interest in cute summer dresses or little shorts. You will be feeling happy and confident with your body, so now is a brilliant time to buy some new clothes that show it off!
