If you are practicing a diet only in order to lose weight, it is very likely that you will not achieve long-term effect.
Even if you persevere in a diet and lose excess pounds, soon after the return to the old regime of diet and lifestyle, lost weight will return you again “at the beginning”.
Instead of diet and strict diet, long-term solution that will not only help to maintain body weight, but also generally contribute to their health is to adopt a healthy lifestyle, which includes a positive attitude towards your body, healthy diet, engaging in exercise that suits you, enough hours of sleep, reduce stress and spending time outdoors.
When you love your own body as it is and you start to feel good about yourself, then it is a natural course of events that will as part of caring for your body also will want to adopt a healthy lifestyle: it’s not because losing weight, not because to be able to wear a dress that is this season fashionable, not because for a selfie on Facebook, but for yourself, for your health and as part of caring, respect and love that you feel towards yourself.
If you just take the time to eat, you will be more aware and present in the moment, and will not happen while watching your favorite TV series “unconsciously” to eat a whole bowl of popcorn, a bag of chips or a loaf of bread (How many times this has happened ?).
Become aware of your emotions while you consume food
Whether we realize it or not, there is a feedback between our emotions and the food we eat.
Often, due to feelings of loneliness, anger, frustration after an argument with your partner or “toxic” day at work, people resort to “comforting food” that “dumb down” negative emotions.
Most often is about food that is not safe or nutritionally meets the needs of the body (such as sweets, chocolates, chips, snacks, cakes …), which in the long run with a sedentary lifestyle can contribute to weight gain, a kind of nutritional deficiency, skin problems …
Love your own body
Feeling good about yourself is the most important mental “diet” that you can start today for the beauty and health!
Include more healthy, whole foods into your diet
