Nutritional self-help: psychological strategies so that our diet does not fail

Nobody has said that losing weight is easy, especially because it requires an effort and a daily constancy in what we really should eat, as well as in a practice of regular exercise that, to a large extent, will help us to reduce that over weight.

If you are one of those many people who are currently following a diet to lose weight, as if you are one of many others who have begun diets but have finally left, then we are going to deal with a series of " psychological strategies"That will help us, our diet, not fail.

Psychological strategies for weight loss diets

They are simple ideas that, first of all, are easy to follow, but we must take into account in order to achieve our purpose:

  • Never serve twice
    It is a better option to serve yourself abundantly, and keep in mind that there will be no second course. In this way we will eat with a better appetite and we will be able to taste the food.
  • Always leave something on the plate
    Many are the experts who agree that one of the bases to both maintain and reduce weight, is to eat in less quantities, thus restructuring our diet in 5 meals a day.
    In that case, an equally good option is to leave something on the plate, although from the beginning we must think about it before serving.
  • Have a yogurt before an important meal or a party
    If we are going to attend an important meal in which we know that there will be plenty of food and we are afraid of recovering some of the weight lost, we can have a lean yogurt enriched with ten grams of protein powder and, why not? with sweetener.
    The proteins will then slowly begin to pass into the blood, attenuating the desire to eat in this way.
  • Never buy food when you are hungry
    It is proven and demonstrated that when a person who is hungry buys food, he ultimately buys much more fatty and sugary foods, acquiring in addition a greater quantity than, in reality, he needed at first.
    That is why it is recommended never go to a supermarket when we are hungry.
