Mindful Eating Better Ensures Weightloss

Often times losing weight just feels like you live a lifetime of deprivation and have little to show for it other than an evil cycle of losing and gaining weight. The yo-yo cycle, many call it. But that stops now. Now you will learn the power of mindfulness and how hypnosis can also help improve your commitment to yourself and let you end the yo-yo cycle once and for all, becoming the weight you have always yeared to be.

Creating a Healthy Body Takes Commitment

Like anything worthwhile, making your body more healthy requires a commitment. You probably know what foods you should and shouldn't eat, and you probably recognize what eating habits you have that are hurting your success at weight loss. But you probably also feel that your lack of willpower makes losing weight impossible. However, a ?lack of willpower? is not your real problem. You simply need to learn how to get your subconscious mind on board to make a real change, and you need to learn a few simple strategies that will help you lose weight.

Eating Mindfully Leads to Success

If you are overweight you are eating too much. This doesn't mean that you are eating a dozen eggs and a kilo of bacon for breakfast, but it means that you are eating more than your body needs to sustain it. Assuming that your doctor has found you healthy, with no metabolism issues, the simple truth is that you need to eat less in order to lose, and then maintain, your weight. The problem with many people in today's fast paced, fast food world is that too often we eat absentmindedly, without being consciously aware of what we are doing. Studies have shown that this type of eating causes us to eat far more than we normally would, as we ignore or do not recognize our bodies' cues that we are full. Thus, the first step in your commitment to lose weight needs to be becoming more mindful of your eating.

Mindfulness is a concept that psychologists have coined to simply mean that you are consciously present and paying attention to your actions. Many of us tend to go through much of life not being mindful, as we fail to pay attention to our children, drive to work on "auto pilot", and snack on junk without even realizing it. Thus becoming mindful of your actions is a very important step in curbing your eating and becoming a healthier you. But what does this mean?

Being mindful is a simple concept. It really just means to pay attention, in this case, to be aware of what you are eating. This means that when you eat all you are doing is eating. You are not watching TV or reading a book; you are not checking your Facebook status or writing an email. You are simply paying attention to the taste and the textures of your food and enjoying the experience. When you are mindful of your eating a few things happen: You enjoy your meals more, you fill up more quickly, and you make better choices about what to eat.

You can master mindful eating in 2 ways. 1) Keep a food journal. A food journal helps you identify patterns in eating and recognize when you are eat out of emotion rather than hunger and other issues. A food journal can also let you see when you are eating too much junk food and lacking healthful food. 2) Be conscious of what you are eating. Turn the television off, put the phone on mute, pay attention to your eating, chewing each bite completely, putting down your fork between bites and truly enjoying your meal. Mindful eating is a necessary step in your journey to weight loss and maintenance.

You can begin to lose weight right now with healthfull, toxin free living and being mindful of what you consume.
