Surely, many have tried to control the amount of food they eat, but as practice shows, almost all ways to fix what they eat are powerless in the face of hunger. And this is not surprising, because food is our physiological need.
Do you believe or not?
Perhaps the most difficult learn to “not seize” your emotions with food and to distinguish between such important signals as hunger and satiety. Once upon a time, we knew how to do all this, but we unlearned it with age and under the influence of various diets and dietary ideas (when, for example, sugar, salt, trans fats were alternately declared evil and recommended to be avoided).

For example, in order not to miss the feeling of satiety, you should pause in the middle of a meal.
Or just start eating a little slower than usual to focus on the process and answer questions:
Do you like the taste of what you eat? Or just got used (la) that “you need to finish eating”?
- Are you still hungry? Do you have something similar to a feeling of fullness?
- At the end of the meal, try to understand at what level of saturation you stopped by rating from 1 to 10.
- It is also very important to know which foods are good and which are bad.
Food that is not satiating
- Fresh fruits
- Chicken/turkey breast
Optimal food accompaniment
- Tuna, chicken; Turkish peas, beans; bread or bread with bran; dressing or salad dressing
- Cheese, bran bread, yogurt
- Cereal side dishes, pasta; whole wheat bread; sauce
To learn how to satisfy your needs without food, it is very important to recognize these needs themselves. Agree that you have the right to rest, sensual pleasure, the expression of your emotions.
The taste of food
If you have been dieting for a long time, it will be difficult to accept that food actually has a lot of advantages. Yes, it is because of these delicious donuts that you get better, and then you feel like a weak-willed person, but it is they that console us, dull the resentment and annoyance at loved ones.
In this case you should try to make your own list of dishes and productsto figure out what is good and what is bad food in your case: tasty / raises cholesterol; relieves boredom / makes you feel full and unhealthy …
By accepting that food has its perks, instead of feeling like a slave to it, you will finally gain power over it.
