Stop Eating When You Are Satisfied is the sixth step of the Seven Steps to Permanent Weight Control. Easy said, not so easy to do for most of us. I don’t know about you, but when I was obese, I had no idea what hunger was and I pretty much was always overfull. I ate to prevent hunger, I ate a lot and I always cleaned my plate no matter how much food was on it. Thanks to weight loss hypnosis I am able to recognize that the edge of hunger is good and to stop eating when my body tells me that I have enough fuel. Slender For Life™ clients at Seattle weight loss hypnosis learn to eat when they are hungry and to stop eating when satisfied. Stop Eating When You Are Satisfied is this weeks reading from my book, Becoming Slender For Life.
Sixth Step: Stop Eating When
You Are Satisfied
Eat when your body signals hunger, and stop eating when you feel satisfied. If you follow the guidelines in this book and this simple rule, you should never be overly hungry. You will be eating plenty of good food. Remember, you are not dieting. You are changing your eating habits. This is not about starvation. Denial does not equal weight loss. It’s a myth that in order to lose weight, you have to be hungry.
IMPORTANT: when someone has not been losing weight fast enough or at all, sometimes others will criticize their portion sizes. The truth usually is that the client is refusing to follow the eating strategy (or even come close to it).
Eat five or six times a day. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a healthy snack of fruit during the mid morning and mid afternoon.
Portion control should not be a problem. Imagine a scale of 0 to 10. Satisfied, is a 5 or 6 on this scale. It’s just like when you put gas in your car and the gas pump shuts off. You learn to recognize that signal when your stomach says Enough…no more! On your CDs you were given hypnotic suggestions to become more internally aware of your appetite. This is complimented with mental conditioning to take small bites. Chew your food slowly until it liquefies. And stop eating when you feel that feeling of satisfaction. It’s okay to be proud of yourself for saying “No thank you” to extra portions, and it’s perfectly fine to leave food on your plate when you stop eating.
Our bodies were biologically engineered to survive the Biblical seven years of abundance and seven years of famine. Today we live differently. Most likely, you have plenty of food in your house. Your neighbors probably have plenty of food in their cupboards. You most likely live within a few miles of grocery stores and restaurants. Most likely, you will not run out of food.
Hunger is a good thing. It means that it is time to eat. We no longer need to store fat for survival. In fact, today, fat is killing far too many people and it is bankrupting America. At Slender For Life™ you can learn the hypnosis for weight loss tools that allow you to lose weight and keep it off.
