-Only counting your calories that you are eating. There is more to counting calories than just hitting a target number. The QUALITY of the foods and the macro-nutrient content. For example if you are eating 1800 calories and the majority of them are from carbohydrates, you are going to look very different than someone who is eating the proper breakdown of macro-nutrients to yield the results they are looking for. So in simple terms, know that the calories you eat need to come from a specific breakdown that is congruent to your goals!
-Consistency is key! You need to be consistent in order for results to happen. Yo-yo dieting is not the answer. Eating clean 4 days in a row and then having the weekend to binge on whatever you want will over all hurt those benefits of clean eating, People tend to have an all or nothing approach, In reality you should not be depriving your body ALL the time that will set you up to binge and possibly undo the hard work you put in to achieve the goals you already accomplished. Stick to an 80/20 rule. 80% of the time eat clean healthy foods that are vibrant in colors, lean meats and complex carbohydrates. 20% of the time eat something that is "tasty" but don't over do it. Maybe go out to eat so it's not sitting in your house all day !!
-Stay hydrated. If you are not properly recovering from your workouts by being hydrated there are many adverse affects that can happen. Your body is made of 70% water. If you are dehydrated, your body will not recovery properly, your skin will not look as vibrant, and you will not have the energy that you desire. Making sure that your hydrated properly is key. Sometimes hunger is portrayed and really you are dehydrated. Try drinking 16 oz of water to determine if that was really the cause of your hunger pangs. Try to drink enough water which is about 4 liters a day and more if you are losing a lot through sweat.
