I love food.

Sunday, July 07, 2013

I feel like food is my biggest problem when it comes to weight lose. I find eating right to be a big struggle. I don't eat at the same time every day. Lots of time this has more to do with the fact that I get so distracted by whatever it is that I am doing that I don't really think about eating until my stomach starts to complain and by that point I am usually so hungry that I end up over eating. I also have a bad snacking habit. I like to be chewing. I have tried to work on this by chewing gum more, which I do think helps quite a bit. But I still love unhealthy snacks like potato chips. At least I can make my own popcorn at home without butter and I actually think it taste good. I still like butter popcorn but I know it isn't good for me so I am glad I like a similar version. I just like food, especially sweets, too much. It really surprises me when another person who is overweight tells me they don't really care for sweets because I also associate fat with sweets. I don't want to spend my whole life feeling fat and ugly, but I can't seem to keep my conviction to eat healthy when the opportunity to have sweets presents itself.

    if that's you in your profile pic, you look just fine, so you need to do two things:
    1. get a better image of yourself in the first place
    2. just maintain the status quo.

    then, you need to stabilize.
    discipline wouldn't hurt.
    plan your meals, eat at regular times, about every 5 hours.
    make your meals last about half an hour.
    don't chew gum, it only increases your appetite.
    if you eat regularly and get your daily requirements, your body will stop craving junk food and you won't need constant chewing.
    and turn your attention to things which will improve your quality of life. good recipes, your work, hobbies, friends and family...

    go for it!
