Giving way to temptation is almost inevitable when trying to lose weight. Five strategies are presented to help minimise the damage. read more
Well, the choice is yours. You have the power to say yes or No to these foods. No matter the choice you choose to make you, there is no need for you to feel guilty. But after all, why can you not make choice, What are your fears, considerations or roadblocks making it difficult to say no.
Well yo don'y want to be fat or that you are addicted to these food. What is your problem?
You can say, Yes but cut down on your calorific intake. Or say No and not indulge in any of them, but consider the health benefit.
Whatever choice you make be a position of power. Know what outcome you want to achieve in your overall purpose in life. Consider the reasons for your being - to learn, grow and contribute. Will eating stop you from not achieving your potential? If so I think it's not worth the effort. Live to eat and not eat to live.
Say "no" by planning your indulgence. My grandmother eats one chocolate fudge ice cream sunday a year. She plans out when she's going to go, with whom, where, etc. And she enjoys that sunday enough so that she can say "no" the rest of the year. Even if you plan to indulge more than once a year, make it planned so that you don't feel out of control.
mmm.. tough question. I usually eat all that stuff when I want it, but I follow 2 rules:
1. I never eat it when I'm hungry as a hunter. Always eat good healthy food first (salads, meat, etc). It fills stomach and then I don't eager sweets as much and consume less amounts.
2. Exercise regularly. It gives me moral permission to eat sweets one day. LOL
Find other food that isn't so unhealthy that you like. But this may be easier said than done I guess, I personally don't even like sweets. Or find a healthier way to enjoy them maybe? Low fat, low sugar, mix fresh fruit in with it. Then you can get your occasional fix without going overboard too much.
Or just focus on your goals and how those foods prevent you from reaching them
If you completely sacrifice these food, you are just going to crave them more. Instead, why don't you try eating them in moderation? Like Bobri Dobri said, eat your healthy foods first, then allow yourself a small indulgence.
Try to become interested in teas. There are some very aromatic teas to discover. You don't even need to add sugar to enjoy. Try to go to a fancy tea shop and spend a lot of money on a some really good tea leaves. Try it once and see if you like it!! Maybe you'll replace your bad habit with a GOOD one!
I'm going to try this new product called Sensaslim, it's one of those sprays that numbs your tongue and doesn't make you feel hungry anymore after sending the message to your brain that you're full. A little warning though: it also sprays away the kilos. If you watched the news (forgot which one) a few days ago it would of said that a French jockey used Sensaslim. He sued Sensaslim after being disqualified for being underweight. So you should try it, sorry I babbled on too much.
I have same problems with those tempting foods, just like you. I just can not say no
Some foods are tempting because they cause your body to release feel good chemicals. A food craving can be a craving for endorphins or other feel good chemicals. Reducing your stress and exercising can reduce food cravings. For example I could eat some comfort food like chocolate or I could exercise. Both make me feel good. The problem with using food is that it does not last very long.
I eat better when I do relaxation exercises and exercise regularly. Not because I am working hard at eating better but because I do not crave junk food. Practicing meditation or slow moving exercises like tai chi, yoga or qigong are a good way to eliminate the need for caffeine.
Avoiding food entirely is only going to make things more difficult. Rather than avoiding them, simply eating less of them will make your journey much easier. One or two bites rather than six or eight bites.
You could try chewing gum. I have heard of people using it to lose weight. When you are presented with sweets, start chewing on a stick of gum. It will satisfy some of the desire for something sweet and keep your mouth occupied.
Can you see Eve's predicament ? She was tempted by a mere apple..lol! I say if you crave, go ahead an indulge, then figure out the damage (calories) and burn them off with some cardio, like walking or an exercise bike. When you realize what it takes to burn these calories, next time you just may decide you can live without the treat....or not!

Is sushi an acquired taste?I have been into sushi for some time now, but those around me find it weird and only many times of eating it did they finally admit to liking it. I just remember how I like it the first time eating it.
