How to Stop Wanting the Extra Food With Isabel Diet Solution

It is believed that the root cause of weight problems has to do with us not being taught how to effectively take care of ourselves when we are children…mostly because our parents probably didn’t have the skills needed to nurture our eating habits. This is why we are seeing obesity running in a family, most probably not because it is genetic, but because we are passing bad skills to our children. Please do not get me wrong by blaming our parents or grand-parents for the weight problem that we are facing now.

To stop wanting the extra food, we can learn the skill of strong nurturing, effective limits, body pride, good health, balanced eating, and a mastery of living – changing our eating habits right away. If we just diet and exercise, and not taking care of the root problem that is causing us to overeat in the first place, then we are only treating the symptom and not the problem. If we are seriously treating the problem then the symptom and the problem will go away as well.

Here are a few tips to help you control the urge to overeat:

1. Have a good light breakfast

Start your day right with a good light healthy breakfast, such as two hard boiled eggs, sprouted grain toast or oatmeal with almond butter and half a grapefruit or a green apple. Protein should be included in every meal throughout the day and breakfast is no exception according to nutritionist, Isabel De Los Rios from Isabel Diet Solution. Make sure to include organic eggs, cottage cheese, raw nut butter or smoked fish as one component of your healthy breakfast.

2. Do not skip meals

Skipping meals does not help in weight loss because it increases your tendency to overeat is very high during the next meal.

3. Drink water

Drinking water either before or after a meal will help you to eat less. Sometimes when you think you are hungry, in fact your body may actually be dehydrated and all you need is a glass of water.

4. Eat “whole foods” as much as possible but in moderation

Whole foods are foods that are unprocessed or unrefined. Examples include unpolished grains, fruit and vegetables, unprocessed meat, poultry and fish, and non-homogenized milk. This will help you to take away added salt, sugar or unwanted preservative in processed food such as sausages.

5. Sit down and enjoy your foods slowly

Eating too quickly can cause to miss out bodies signal that were are getting full, causing us to overeat until we are bloated. You should really taste your food so you can savour every mouthful of nature’s produce.

6. Do not eat and drink at the same time

Eating and drinking at the same time will dilute the digestive enzymes and stomach acids making digestion more difficult for the body. If you really need to drink then do it an hour earlier.

7. Add a salad to your diet every day

Whenever possible make your own dressing instead of buying commercial ones. One such tasty dressing that I found out lately is olive oil and lemon juice, simply mix them together and you get a tasty, healthy dressing.

To eat in moderation and listen to your body is the key to control your food and calorie intake and it will help to stop wanting the extra food which you do not need. Learn the secrets of wanting less by asking more of this healthy lifestyle by visiting this website.
