To take control of the diet is not necessarily to give up delicious food and nice drinks. Ask yourself a few simple questions, and you can eat and drink as much as you really need.
Do not be shy, we all do that. We overeat and then regretted it terribly. We have promised myself not to do it, but did not fulfill that promise. Only a small piece of chocolate cake, only a small piece of cake... And half is gone. And then - a sense of guilt and regret. Night snacks? Well, as without them. Another glass of wine, and in the morning - "Bloody Mary." Then, so as not to inflate the bubble, we sit down on a diet or punish ourselves with additional exercises.
It is very unpleasant to feel that you can not take control of your desires. Especially when you start to eat properly, but one stall blew all of your accomplishments. However, because of this endless cycle of excess and self-restraint there is a way.
Does this mean that we have to give up that brings us so much joy? We all want to savor your favorite food and drinks and not feel in this case is defective. In the end, if the cook tried to keep the food I wasdelicious, Why should we be ashamed of the fact that we enjoy it?
We can learn to eat delicious food, from which will not suffer our physical form. And for us that eating will not be ashamed. You just need to change the angle of perception of food consumed. Perhaps this phrase sounds too vague and unattainable, but in reality it involves very specific steps. Follow the two simple strategies.
1. Eat, for which the body will thank you
Choose a meal, using which you will feel equally well at the time of the meal, and a few hours afterwards. And it is not associated with indulgence. Healthly foodWhich saturates your body with nutrients, can (and should) be palatable. A food that does not make your body to use, can be relatively harmless. This means that it will not make your stomach burn and will not lead to joint pain. Before you consume a certain food (or drink), ask yourself these questions:
- whether it will be beneficial to my body? If so, feel free to move on to the food.
- If not, will I be sorry when it eat? If your answer is - no, come on, eat with pleasure!
- Even if the food does not bring me good, is it worth it to at least try it? If not, give up this food.
The idea is clear, right? The idea is to control yourself and time to press the button "Stop", before falling into an endless rabbit hole eating (or perepivaniya). Using this strategy, you will be able to choose food wisely, without too limiting themselves instead of mindlessly absorb everything that comes to you in the eye.
2. Use the rule of the first bite
That first sip fine wine, made in the summer patio in good company, does not leave you with no choice but to breathe a sigh of pleasure. It was the first piece of brownie makes you publish satisfied "th-th-th." Food is meant to enjoy it. But should not we savor every morsel as well as the first? However, it needs to keep track of what you feel after each bite (or sip).
- After a few bites of the dish still seems to me so delightful?
- I really enjoy it or it simply because it started?
Answers to these questions require a conscious attitude to the process of food consumption. If you seek to stop overeating, especially not limiting itself, it is this awareness is your ultimate goal.
Pausing to make sure the meal process continues to bring you the same pleasure, you will be able to stop in time to yourself and never eat more than you really want. Soon you will realize that you do not have to leave a plate without a single crumb or drink up to the bottom of the bottle. Ask yourself these questions - the most natural and effective way to avoid regrets after overeating.
To follow these principles, you need not be a rocket scientist. But for their development requires constant practice. In the end, our goal - to live a bright and fulfilling life in which there is no abuse of food and drink and the subsequent self-flagellation. You still overeat or suffering from a hangover? Enough tolerating this. Just a few questions to ask yourself - and you are free of the bitter regrets.
