Beyond Dieting - Your Body As the Best Source of Natural Non Diet Weight Control Pt 1 of 3

If you are a woman who has been dieting or watching your weight for a while, there is a good chance that you have lost touch with your body hunger signals. Did you know that your body is actually the best source for controlling your non-natural weight? Betcha didn't know that, because it was a tight secret. Diet organizations invest billions of dollars every year in an effort to keep you on a diet.

If you have been a diver, you have been taught to accept that eating a diet and denying your loved one is the only solution to your problems. And if you want to control what you eat and / or lose weight from being on a diet it's something you just have to smile and bear for the rest of your life. But by accepting that diet is the answer, you agree that you have no control over your body and that you are willing to give up your authority to the outside authorities; your diet.

Belief in this diet solution has led generations of people to look for a miracle diet, hoping that one day the right diet will come and guarantee they will lose weight. But did you know that ...

Diet does not work

If you have struggled for years with overweight, ups and downs, getting caught in a cycle of dieting and dieting, then you should know that it is not your fault and you are certainly not alone in your frustration, because the diet is not working.

A new study published in the April issue of the journal "American Psychology" shows that for most people, dieting does not work. Samantha Heller is a nutritionist with "Health" magazine, and she offers her professional opinions on why diets don't work. Here's a summary of his suggestions:

Why Diet Does Not Work

  • People think they are temporary - the tendency is to think about nutrition until you lose weight, and then you can go back to eating as you did before.

  • One size fits all - diets are too tight, they are too rigid, they do not allow individual or cultural priorities, budgets, food availability

When asked why people gain more weight after a diet, Ms. Heller explains, "When you lose weight and you block calories, your body thinks you are hungry and you are starving. Your body doesn't know that your body's mission is to conserve energy, and they are fat.When you start eating again, your body prepares for the next famine by storing fat, metabolism and filling your fat cells. To lose weight without triggering your body's hunger response, land and be careful.

Experts suggest that the best long-term solution for regular weight control is to eat moderately and exercise more. But if you've always been a diver, you might be wondering how you can live without the structure so familiar to you in your diet. You may not like it, but you come to rely on rigid regimentation that guides you every step of the way like a diet. Your fears are justifiable and easy to understand because the years of your diet have made you think about yourself and your relationship with food in a very unpleasant way. But now it's time to give you back control and teach you how to feel safe around food. The answer is in you!

Your Body: The Best Source for Non-Dietetic Weight Loss

Dr. Nancy Bonios, creator of The Bonios Plan: The Diet Program (a non-dietary approach to weight control) said, "The National Center for Health Statistics and many medical authorities have recently highlighted this failure as a long-term way to control weight loss. What has been completely overlooked, in the pursuit of diet's' magic is the magical ability we experience, naturally. "

If you stop thinking about it, your body is doing so many wonderful and wonderful things for you every day. All of these processes are controlled by a part of your consciousness called your subconscious mind. It is your subconscious mind that directs your body to do everything necessary to keep you alive. That's why you breathe, your heart pumps, your body knows when and how and where to move blood. It constantly releases toxins, repairs, replays your cells and it's just the tip of the iceberg. Without having to think about it or deliberately plan what to do, or how to do it, thanks to the direction of your subconscious mind, your body automatically monitors every complex detail that works for you. So why can't you trust it to guide you in controlling your appetite and managing your weight?

Make Peace with Your Hunger - It Is Fearless

Naturally, our bodies are engineered to crave food when we are hungry and stop eating before we are too full. Newborns show up every time they turn their heads and push away breast milk or bottles. They intuitively understand that if they continue to eat outside of their virginity, they will become uncomfortable. Diet prevents the natural connection between you and your body. If you want to regain your body's natural ability to feel satisfied, first you must be prepared to be at peace with your hunger.

Intuitive Foods: Natural Formulas for Effective Weight Control

Eating according to your body hunger signals is called intuitive or coordinated eating. The term "intuitive eating" was first coined in the early 1990s by two prominent nutritionists and registered dietitians, Elyse Resch, M.S.R.D., F.A.D.A and Evelyn Tribole, M.S.R.D. in their book, "Intuitive Eating: The Working Revolution Program." As far as I'm concerned, no other book can explain the whole process of becoming as intuitive as the book itself. It's a stone!

The Benefits of Eating In Answering Your Body vs Dieting

There are so many interesting benefits to learning how to eat intuitively. They include the following:

It's easy to resist temptation: When you eat intuitively, it is not uncommon that you will find yourself craving food at times when you are not physically hungry. This means you will not have any problems with 'temptation'. to eat because you will automatically associate eating more than your fill, with pain. For the most part, you will not feel any urge or desire to eat something simply because you look at pictures of food, smell good, or see others eating, Eating habits when you are not hungry for a sense of compulsion. lack and fear of never getting enough. This is the result of diet.

Eat the food you like: With diet, there are many restrictions on what foods to eat. Often we believe that we cannot, cannot or will not eat certain foods. As a diet, we are led to believe that certain foods are beyond our control, so we do our best to avoid them, but this creates an unnatural or urgent desire to eat them. In your quest to learn to be an intuitive eater, you will level the playing field. As long as you know that you are free to eat what you want, you can always have the food you enjoy.

This is actually important to your success in learning how to be an intuitive eater, because by learning to eat and feel safe around your old temptations, you will re-establish the confidence you have broken from your diet. When you become more detailed about how your stomach feels, and how your hunger level changes, it's easier to stop eating before you are too full.

My Experience Learning How to Become an Intuitive Eater: Discovering the Missing Links

At 47, I've been on a diet for most of my life, since I was 11 years old. In 2006, I finally decided to jump on faith and decide to quit my diet. A friend told me about an intuitive meal and I saw it as an opportunity to eventually turn off the roller coaster diet. I know in my heart that I just need to prove to myself that I can trust myself with food.

In the first week I started the process, I could easily recognize that certain foods no longer tasted as good as I remember. by them. My first pillar experience was eating potato chips and deciding that they were too bad. I was shocked and surprised that it would never stop me from eating chips before. Shortly after my family and I traveled to Chocolate World, Hershey, Pennsylvania and with chocolate everywhere and easy access, no one appealed to me and all I wanted was some kind of fried chicken. A few days later after a few days of eating fried potatoes, I like roasted potatoes. All of these examples prove to me that this process really works, so I'm committed to continuing to learn, but as a collector at the time, I couldn't be satisfied. I've always wanted to eat more. Now I know why.

Eating is intuitive as a way to be gentle with yourself, but what if you're not used to it?

As a woman with a ton of eating disorders and a history of abuse, I have learned over the years to become my own worst critic. I'm often harder on myself than anyone can be. From my understanding of intuitive eating, I realize that this is a process that is based on learning how to treat yourself well and lovingly. Since it didn't come as second nature to me, I ended up eating more than I could handle. I learned the hard way that it's not easy to make the conscious decision to take care of yourself, eat in response to your hunger and expect the weight to begin to fall. It doesn't work that way. Here's why:

Like every other body function, your eating habits are controlled by your subconscious mind. If you have stress and frustration, and the need to eat for your own comfort is stronger than your desire to get thinner, you will face conflict. Here's why:

In the same way that the subconscious mind controls your body processes, it also holds the inner image of how you perceive yourself; image of yourself. Consider your subconscious mind to be like the internal operating system of a computer software program. It is a repository that stores all of your life experiences, beliefs and interpretations of who you are and the world in which you live. Because I have had horrible experiences with diets in the past, I have a strong belief that I can't trust myself around food and that I may always be fat and ugly. This means I carry around what I like to call a fat, ugly image of myself, so the more I regret myself and feel out of control, the more I want to eat to feel better. Because the stress of my life at that time was so out of control and I didn't use the pressure relief techniques I knew to help myself, I kept eating.

My faith in the diet is intuitive, never wavering, because I know it works and because I attend many non-diet discussion boards, I always read about the success of others. For me, intuitive food gives me the ability to be very selective about what foods I eat, but it seems that the guidelines for the process are so vague that it lacks the structure that I expect from a nutritional year. Left to my own device, I don't know how to listen to my body hunger. For the way I thought, my body was always hungry, so I kept eating until I gained an extra 35 pounds.

Embarrassing and embarrassing to my mind, I knew something was missing. During the Aha lights, putting on my coach's hat, I realized something was missing. That's when I realized that I had to integrate what I learned about stress relief and actually apply it to myself. In a flash, as soon as I started to do so, my pain, discomfort, subsided. That's when I learned that stress relief is a key element to success with weight-loss control.

If you find yourself eating consistently, keep in mind that it's just an old habit that comes from having no other way to deal with stress. If you can't stop eating, the signal that your body gives you indicates that you need to be really serious in handling your stress.
