Hey it’s Easter Time at the gym and at the offices of the “Fat Loss Review”
That means that I can eat the odd chockie with my daughter and feel good about it.
But seeing that the word “moderation” (the word that I hear people use from time to time) was clearly not borrowed from my dictionary; how do I stop eating once I get started?
That may be a question that all of you ask, I mean not Now, (of course) but sometime you may have realised that you had eaten a little too much.
Of course this is no replacement for the real Fat Loss Review, click here for more details.
There is a tomorrow.
You don’t have to do it all now. We tell our kids to save some chocolate for tomorrow yet we find it hard to follow that advice. Before you eat; begin to focus for 90 seconds on how you would feel if you over ate,
…I mean really over ate like a starving lesser spotted Vietnamese pot bellied pig, (or something like that)
Allow yourself to imagine that guilty, fat feeling, that unpleasant feeling of regret.
Then bring yourself back to know by telling yourself that an angel has allowed you to go back in time and do things correctly.
“Oh how I wish I could have time back” we sometimes cry, and we can, you know have it all back and do things correctly.
Now, with the chance to do things differently, do them differently and take your time and eat little bits. Stop before you are full.
How full are you?
Some people focus on how hungry they are, (Half empty glass) well can you feel that there is a little food in your tummy? What does that feel like?
Bump up the calorie expenditure.
No it’s is not healthy to attempt to lose weight either by starving yourself or without exercising. Remember your fat loss / gain is a function of three things.
- Calories in,
- calories out and
“I don’t like exercise” I hear one of you whinge? Your body was built to move and if you want it to carry on moving you into your old age’ then you need to look after you body now and that means exercise.
Exercise could mean as little as 20 minutes on the treadmill, exercise bike, rower or elliptical trainer, (that’s about the same time that some people spend on the toilet! so don’t tell me that you don’t have time)
I teach my weight loss and fat loss clients to eat in a meditative way. If you are chugging chocolate down like there is no tomorrow, (and there is a tomorrow, I have it circled in my diary) then how can you really be enjoying it?
Take it easy and slowly. The hungry hormones will carry on working your appetite for about 30 minutes after you eat. That is why you overeat.
Eat some good food first.
It’s the same advice I give to all my clients when they are trying to control the calories in side of the formula. Small healthy starters mean that the Hungry Hormones have a chance to start tailing off. When the calorie rich foods come out, then the appetite has been brought down a bit.
Here is a suggestion that I received via email today. Use it, don’t use it. The numbers are correct so it is interesting reading.
