Plan Out Your Diet
To seriously lose weight, you need an active eating plan. How do you respond when you are faced with stress or boredom that prompts your bad habit? Take the necessary steps to break this habit. For example – What are you going to do when you have that craving for something salty, sweet, crunchy, etc? You need to have a plan for what you will do instead of caving in to your bad habit
Recognise your hunger
Most of the time, we’re conditioned to ‘think’ that we’re hungry rather than actually ‘feel’ the hunger. Are you bored or stressed about something? Do you really need food? Perhaps, you just need a little boost of liquid or a little distraction. Try drinking water or eating a banana. Don’t give in to your cravings for something unhealthy like chips or ice cream.
Think before you eat
Don’t just reach into the cereal box and grab multiple handfuls. Take note of whatever it is you’re putting in your mouth or hand for that matter. Reproach yourself over and over each time the temptation comes, in time it will definitely help you from going all the way. This will not actually help you lose weight but it will certainly help you avoid gaining weight.
It is important to remember what your health goal is and don’t give up or give in. Visualise your success and see as you take on a new identity. If you can, pair up with friends who want to attain the same goals like you do. You two can hold each other accountable and celebrate your achievements together. When you know someone expects you to be better, it can serve as a powerful motivator
