7 Weight Loss Tips to control our food intake
In this article you will discover some simple, yet effective weight loss tips which will help you break your bad food habits and fight off the cravings.
When you can feel a food craving coming on, brush your teeth…
When your belly is not rumbling but your mind is telling you to open the refrigerator, it is time to unleash the toothbrush. When you are not physically hungry but you are craving food, brushing your teeth can work wonders. It is a little known fact that brushing your teeth can help the craving pass and you will no longer feel like eating. Next time you’re craving chocolate, give it a try.
We eat foods in some social situations, but do we have to?
It is easy to fall into a routine, for example – when you settle into your seat at the cinema, isn’t it nice to have a big tub of popcorn and a Coke to hand? When we begin to associate snacks with other pleasurable experiences, habits begin to form. Next time you visit the cinema, why not skip the popcorn? Try drinking Diet Coke or even water.
You are allowed to eat food, don’t starve yourself
Eating when you have a good appetite is always the best approach to dieting, if you wait until you are starving you will find that you eat more. If you deprive yourself of food, you are more prone to binge eating. Junk food and snacks always seem more appealing on an empty stomach.
That is why the very low calorie diets don’t work in the long run. You go over the top when you can’t stand the deprivation any longer. Make sure that you eat when you have a good appetite and don’t wait till you’re starving. If you wait too long, you won’t be able to stop.
You actually NEED fat in your food
Fat is an essential source of energy, however, there are good fats and bad fats. Good fats can be found in fish oil, oil from seeds, nuts and olives. Dairy products, red meat and fried food contain bad fats.
Change your attitude to food… comfort foods, why do we have them?
Did you know? Babies only demand food when they are hungry, they stop eating when they are full. As we grow up, we are ‘rewarded’ for good behavior with treats such as sweets and biscuits – when we are older, we treat ourselves with chocolate and ice-cream… this is why we eat for comfort when we are upset. By understanding where this habit comes from, you can begin to combat it – why not treat yourself to a makeover or a new pair of jeans instead? What a perfect incentive to hit your weight loss goals.
Don’t take food restrictions and exercise over the top
Becoming fanatical about your weight and foods you can eat, can be counterproductive, furthermore, you are more likely to succeed when you enjoy what you are doing. Let’s take jogging for example, it would be ridiculous to jog five mile per day if you simply don’t like jogging – in next to no time you would become jaded and probably resort back to not exercising at all. You should take time to discover the things you enjoy, try swimming, jogging or even cycling.
Don’t be afraid to say no to foods
Sometimes other people do not understand your goals. For example, you’re out to dinner and your friend exclaims “you must have dessert!” It can be difficult to say no. We don’t want to appear rude, but, do you ‘really’ need to eat dessert? If you’re not comfortable saying no, perhaps you could say “It looks great but I’m full, I’ll definitely try it next time.” It is a much kinder approach and rarely offends.
