High protein diet: Most likely you are having some hypoglycemia si you should try a small fruit like an apple or a small banana and that should resolve the problem , also make sure you hydrate well when you are on high protein diet.

Motivation: Create small goals , if you need to loose twenty pounds, work on the first five first. Loosing the first five gives you a sense of achievement and motivate you to keep going . Keep reminding your self why are doing this diet and what are the benefits. Also some time little rewards are very effective. For some women for example being able to fit in their favorite outfit comfortably is all it takes.

Weight maintenance : The most important thing is check your weight once or twice a month to know how you are doing, also make sure to make changes to your diet if you notice your wright is going up , do not wait till you are twenty pounds before you look for the problem, early intervention is easy and productive. I recommend an app for calorie counting like my fitness pal to see what is your average calorie intake, .
