Upon reading this Kindle book, by author Doug Fredricks, I picked out what I found to be the important parts to share with you.
Fredricks starts out by teaching that learning to control your cravings and reduce your appetite is the key ingredient to being successful at any weight loss attempt.
The factors: boredom, stress, comfort and diet will combine to provide you with an increase in calories, fats and sugars that you may not actually need.
Cravings originate in the brain rather than the stomach. The brain responds more to emotional needs than physical needs.
Understand that not all cravings should be fulfilled. Control your cravings by eating the right foods and the right time of day.
The problem arises when the craving is created by a habit or an association rather than an actual need.
Consuming 2 to 3 cups of coffee each day, particularly when you are hungry, can have a positive effect on your body, increasing metabolic speed and suppressing appetite.
Foods rich in fiber must be included in your daily meals for feeling fuller and to ensure all waste products are removed and digestive tract kept clear.
Milk and low fat dairy have 2 proteins, whey and casein, which are natural appetite suppressants.
Fatty acids keep your skin soft, provide energy and deliver fat soluble vitamins.
Slow down as your stomach needs 20 minutes to tell your brain you are full.
Drink water before meals to feel fuller and between meals.
Spices help you feel fuller longer.
Breakfast reduces cravings ensuring you have a lighter lunch.
Food types slowing the digestive system include: sweet potatoes, dark chocolate and tofu.
There are many artificial suppressors at stores, on-line and at health stores.
Finally, controlling your body by adjusting your habits, associations and even the physiology of your eating habits will result in successful weight loss.
Understand and control those cravings and appetite...the rest will happen by itself!
Well, these are the little gems I have found in this book. I hope they help you and make you determined to lose that weight.
