Eat to Lose Weight Like a Pro:
Eat to Lose Weight? It's easy to believe that in order to lose weight, one mustn't eat - WRONG!
I always thought that in order to lose weight I would either have to wear a muzzle, or become an exercise fanatic - imagine me sporting a headband and leg warmers! Is it possible to eat to lose weight? Absolutely. If you really let this concept sink in, it's a beautiful thing - EAT TO LOSE WEIGHT.
When those words sank in, I was doing the happy dance - he's a maniac!!
Changing your eating habits does not take place overnight. I continue to have my share of challenges. Please remember, this is not a diet. This is a lifestyle change.
The process of making a lifestyle change is difficult, but not impossible. Fortunately, I've gotten to a point in my life where I don't feel well if I eat foods that are not healthy. My life has changed for the better since I've learned how to eat to lose weight. Another point of interest, I learned to make eating healthy my primary objective. Focusing on this main goal resulted in a secondary benefit - weight loss!
Here are some tips to help you eat to lose weight:
1. Eat! - start with breakfast (eg: low fat yogurt, steel cut oatmeal, egg whites)
2. Avoid processed foods - GO FRESH & GO RAW (eg: celery, tomatoes, avocados, carrots, apples, salad greens - dressing on the side)
3. Eat Before You Eat: If treating yourself to a cheeseburger, drink lots of water and
nibble on some celery prior to eating that burger. The fiber in the celery combined
with the water will fill you up and leave less room for the bad stuff.
4. Slow Down: Make time to eat, chew and taste your food. I used to inhale my food while standing up - I was like a world record largemouth bass!
5. Eat more, smaller meals rather than 3 larger ones and be aware of portion sizes.
Hypnosis is the best way to train your mind to choose to eat healthy foods as a matter of course.
Are you fed up with losing weight and then putting it back on again?
Do you find it a struggle to maintain a healthy eating regime?
That word - regime - may be the culprit. It can have the same effect on you as the word "routine." These words suggest being hard on yourself. Making rules. Punishing yourself if you go off the rails. It makes the whole business of getting to and maintaining a healthy weight seem like so much hard work. You can keep it up for a while, but then you just get exhausted!
And once you have fallen off, you are more likely to say to yourself, "What's the point? I'll never manage it!" And then you swing in the opposite direction and over-indulge yourself. Unfortunately, the consequences of that don't exactly make you happy either, do they?
Do you need more willpower to eat healthy foods?
How do you get out of this? Do you just need more willpower?
Of course, willpower plays a vital role when it comes to making important decisions in your life. If you want to turn things around in your life, you know that you need will power to make the decision to start, and will power to persevere with all the steps required to implement and maintain the changes that you make. So developing your will power is clearly a useful thing to do.
Eat to lose weight: How junk foods can overpower your will
But when it comes to choosing to eat healthy foods, you've already encountered the weak link in the will power approach. Something about that particular moment of choice is stronger than your will. Isn't that what it feels like? Almost as if you've been hijacked. As if the choice for the unhealthy food has been made behind your own back. How does this happen?
When you have a sudden strong desire for something that's right in front of you, it is like being hypnotized. You've heard of hypnotized people experiencing amnesia, "forgetting" things that they know. This is what those deliciously attractive junk foods can do to you. They make you forget something very important - your future. In that moment, all you can think of is the satisfaction you will enjoy now. It's very hard to resist.
The good news is that you can deliberately use hypnosis to remember.
Hypnosis can help you naturally choose to eat healthy foods
My weight loss hypnosis sessions are created with you in mind. Hypnosis is a tool for ensuring that your brain can no longer be hijacked by those tempting (but detrimental) goodies without your consent.
As you listen regularly and repeatedly to these audios, you'll find that you...
Start using hypnosis to lose weight and remember what really matters to you.
