OVEREATING IS IT A WASTE ?
Monday, October 28, 2013
Today when I was reading the Beck diet Book, I was surprised when today you were to over portion your plate. Though, when you eat just eat the portion. Then the leftovers throw it in the trash. The thought that needed to come across was if you have to waste food that you don't eat you have a choice to throw it in the trash or throw it away in your body. Each is a waste of food! If you think about this daily your road to eating portions will be a fantastic journey to your weight loss.
Then I was to eat the right portion and then set an alarm for 20 minutes. The rule is that you will not fill full if you eat too fast and that after the alarm rings. you will know that you body is satisfied and you will eventually know when you are satisfied without the alarm.
It feel so weird throwing the food away, but I do realize that that food if I did overeat would be a waste for my body!. I did do the alarm experiment and It did work! I 'll will definitely practice that method more to really now when I am totally satisfied.
So Today I:
Read my list of reasons for my lifestyle change.
I planned my day and my meals
I exercised for 180 minutes ( did some heavy housekeeping for an hour)
I ate slowly and mindful
I did put an extra portion on my dinner plate , and yes I threw half of it in the trash! and not in my body No Waste
I set the alarm for 20 minutes to realize the feeling of being satisfied!
I give myself credit for:
doing the extra bit of exercise.
for making the Yummy pumpkin muffins I had for breakfast ( a family favorite)
and having some me time!
Family Time: DH just rested thru out the day, Daughter helped with my cutting new coupons out, and I relaxed after my busy day and worked on my crochet pattern!
