Mistake #1 

Expecting too much too soon: You are not going to become lighter after just a day of eating right. That is not going to happen even in seven days or maybe even two weeks. Stick to a plan and you will lose weight.

Mistake #2

Skipping breakfast: Or having just a glass of juice for breakfast is a huge mistake as it is the most important meal of the day, so make sure you make it nutritious and filling.

Mistake #3

Binge post workouts: By doing this you're throwing all the hard work down the drain. Decide on a cheat day and control the portion if you want to indulge in your favourite comfort food.

Mistake #4

Overdoing proteins: Loading up on all the protein you can get your hands on, is not going to help. Determine the right amount of protein your body needs and have just that much.
