A Simple Plan To Create The New You
know your bad habits so that you can make whatever changes you
need to make. Successful long term weight loss is more than losing
the weight for a few weeks it is understanding that you need to change
your lifestyle and commit to those changes 100%.
The reason we need a permanent solution is because we are
reprogramming our subconscious, our attitude and ourselves towards
our food. Think of it this way, you didn't form these habits over-night
so you will not change them overnight. Give yourself enough time to
break the old habit and create a new health habit.
Our eating habits are never more dramatic than when we eliminate all
of our favorite foods at once. This type of drastic change is very
difficult for our bodies. When you remove all these foods you will
experience cravings and cravings lead to snacking and over eating.
Losing weight is not about depriving your body of essential nutrients
so never create drastic change that is impossible to sustain.
Our bodies are marvellous pieces of machinery and will stop at nothing
to preserve us at all costs. What this means to us as dieters is that
when we drastically reduce food and calories our body will actually
slow down our metabolism and begin storing fat. You can't fight this
feature of your body because our chemistry has had millions of years
to develop and understand how to survive.
So how do we get around this? You must understand your body and
work with it. You must introduce all changes gradually. Prepare meals
that will not leave you craving for more when you are done because,
as I stated earlier, cravings lead to snacking and over eating. When
you make the commitment to change your life make sure you give
yourself enough time to make all the changes necessary. If you do this
you will reach your long term weight loss goals and be able to
maintain your weight with ease.
