The Hunger Games: Stop Killing Yourself to Losing Weight
No one likes feeling hungry.
The need for food is the most hardwired biological drive; it’s goes back to the earliest humans and their need to survive.
But then again…
Our cave ancestors didn’t have the option of hitting up the Wendy’s that’s right around the corner.
Or the thousands of processed items we can get at any grocery store/gas station/shopping mall, etc.
So while hunger was once a vital indicator that food was needed thousands of years ago,
Today it might just be a symptom of boredom, depression, or even addiction.
Our relationship to food has TOTALLY changed.
And this is why losing weight can be so difficult.
Because no matter what diet you go on,
If your goal is to drop some pounds, you are going to have to get used to some level.
There’s no getting around it.
If this wasn’t true, than everybody would be walking around at their ideal weight. It’s easy to see that this is not the case.
Here are a few tips to help you deal with hunger that might help:
- Eat slower. Try to be a bit more mindful when you eat. SLOW DOWN. If you’re shoveling a meal down while watching TV or looking at your phone, it’s very possible that you’re missing the early signs of being full. Chew your food a bit longer, this not only can help you enjoy it more, but it goes a long way in helping the digestive process.
- Drink more water. You already know how important it is to get enough H2O. A lot of the times when we think, “Hey, I could go for a snack,” we’re actually in the early stages of dehydration. When you first notice that you’re hungry, drink some water and see what happens.
- Consider your “Why.” Say you just finished your dinner on a new diet plan and your kinda like, “Is that IT?” Tell yourself WHY you’re embarking on this journey. Maybe you want to make sure you’re healthy and be active with your kids. Maybe you want to finally fit into that smaller size. Whatever it is, keep reminding yourself that nothing that’s awesome and worth having comes easily.
- Put veggies into play. You can eat as much celery as you want. Literally. Other green and leafy vegetables are similar in their ability to eat huge amounts without worrying about bowing your daily calories. Of course, this doesn’t mean you can drown them in ranch, but at least it’s it’s a good option.
Turn hunger into your opponent. When those thoughts of “just have one little piece of cake” start rearing their ugly heads, smack them down!
Think of how fortunate you are to live in a culture in which you DON’T have to worry about not having enough food. There are millions of people around the world that don’t have that luxury.
The point is you can redefine your relationship to hunger while losing weight.
Will it be a bit uncomfortable at times?
But will it get easier as you have one little success over it after another.
Yup. You better believe it.
And if you cave in sometimes, don’t beat yourself up. Just get back on track and keep moving forward.
Life tends to work out best when we don’t treat it like a sprint.
It’s a marathon.
