There are just a few simple things you need to do as I learned through Paul Mckenna's book "I Can Make you Thin"
1. eat when you are hungry
2. eat slowly
3. eat until you are full. Put down your spoon,fork, whatever between bites. Chew your food. Be aware what you are eating. When you think you are full. STOP. Wait a few minutes. If not sure you are full, eat some more. Then stop when feel full. You can always come back for more if you think you're hungry 10 min from then.
4. Eat what you want. As long as you follow the above rules.
You will be amazed at what your body will begin to tell you that it needs.
I have lost 96 lbs by following Paul's book & advise. After I read his book, I thought why didn't anyone ever tell me these things before. It just clicked & I was off & running with the weight loss. The book also comes with a CD you listen to. Worth every cent I paid.
