Do you experience uncontrolled gluttony attacks? Don't ignore it, go to the doctor's!
Perhaps you suffer from binge-eating disorder! Similarly to anorexia, bulimia or other eating disorders, this one needs treating. If the periods of uncontrolled eating are very sudden and are accompanied by losing consciousness, specialist's help is compulsory!
Don't treat diet seasonally!
If you care about the improvement of the quality of our menu and physical activity but you do it in fits and starts - you'll never achieve satisfactory and permanent effects. Many people start to care about the content on their plate only two weeks prior to their holidays or a family or company party. They are desperately looking for some fast methods that would correct their figure aesthetics, which usually ends up with a failure and has negative effect on their mood and health. Don't make this mistake and change you eating habits once for all choosing a healthy diet.
Are you afraid of the yo-yo effect? Use common sense when dieting!
People who use "instant diets" from full-colour newspapers and magazines or base their diet on their friends' or their own ideas, are prone to the yo-yo effect, which means coming back to the previous weight after finishing the diet. The alternative to the unwise reduction programmes is the rational approach, which introduces gradual change of eating habits for better as well as having consultation with diet and training specialists and other experienced people.
Are you often hungry between your meals? Watch out for the carbs!
Do you know a proverb "the more you eat, the more you want to eat"? It describes perfectly the situation of an excess amount of refined carbs intake. Glucose-insulin interaction disorder and lowering the sensitivity of receptors that read the signals sent from insulin and leptin hormones leads to the deregulation of hunger control mechanisms. The reason may be excessive consumption of carbohydrates.
You want to lose weight so you don't eat supper? It's not a good idea!
A common belief that in order to lose excess weight you shouldn't eat meals after six p.m., has no support in a form of research. Nobody has proved that this method is beneficial, and you can see in real life that it can be a burden. Instead of concentrating on the time of supper, pay attention to what you can find on your plate during the day and in the evening. The quality of the food you eat influences the effectiveness of slimming procedures much more that the times of meals.
