Have you ever tried losing weight only to find you gain it back within weeks and months after? It’s a frustration many dieters will have experienced at some point.
Let’s take a look at some of the common obstacles in the path of people looking to lose weight. And by the way, if you’re overweight, you’re not alone. In 2014, researchers found there were 2.1 billion people in the world who were obese.
Don’t be too strict with weight loss plans. Of course, to lose weight, you need to eat less an exercise more. A common pitfall I see is people will start off highly encouraged and motivated but when their desired results don’t materialise in the time expect, they soon regress and go back to their old eating habits. So my advice is that it’s OK to have ‘off’ days – these are the times when you don’t eat healthily or you skip a gym session. It’s OK. Just accept it and get back on target asap. A good way to deal with such pitfalls is to use mindfulness techniques where you notice what has happened, you forgive yourself and move on. Don’t let an indulgent piece of cake lead you back to old habits.
Have you recognised the emotional reasons tied to your eating habits? No doubt, you will have comfort eaten at least once in your life and it’s important to recognise why it is you’re eating out of comfort. Often, you won’t even be hungry but yet you will eat certain foods because of the emotional connection you have. For example, a relationship breakup may lead you straight to that chocolate bar, or chocolate cake. It’s not often obvious why a person comfort eats and sometimes, hypnosis can delve deeper into the mind to identify the true reasons why people do what they do. In the case of comfort eating, hypnosis can be used to curb food cravings and overeating habits.
Weight loss is hard and without a big enough reason it can be even harder. We often seen massive turnarounds in people who have suffered a near death health emergency and have been told by doctors in no uncertain terms that their life on this planet is limited due to their eating habits and unhealthy lifestyle. Sometimes a wedding or important social event is the reason for weight loss, but as soon as that has been and gone, the pounds get piled on once again. So it’s important to have a big enough WHY when you approach not just weight loss, but any goals you’re looking to achieve in life.
Setting yourself up for weight loss success involves not just mindset but having the right foods and kitchen appliances in place to help you along the way. Always go shopping for your food when you’re not hungry – that way you won’t be tempted by less heathy food offers. There are cooking appliances which allow you cook great tasting foods but with minimal fat or oil. There’s plenty of choice too and we found a couple of low fat fryers which will help you with healthy cooking. The Breville Halo health fryer is a popular choice although there are also other models reviewed here http://www.healthfryers.com.
