You also want to listen to your body when it comes to eating. So you are not eating too much or just eating when you are bored. I get what I call the munchies alot. No it's not because I just got done smoking a joint LoL.... I really get these cravings for crunchy or snackey foods and I just want to munch because my mouth is bored. It's really strange, but it happens. I see it in kids too. They don't want to eat in between meals because they are hungry sometimes, they want to snack because they see someone else have it or they just like to chew to have something to do. Mine do it. So you have to sit down and actually think while you eat. Do I really want to eat? Do I need to have this much? Am I full yet? I know that I grew up having to clean my plate or you got in trouble. So now I clean my plate and most of the time I am beyond the full point by then. I shouldn't do that. I should stop when I feel full and save the rest for another meal. That's the main reason that they say to not eat in front of the television. You will blindly eat and eat, because you are not paying attention to how much you are eating. I takes alot of focus and prectice but it's a great technique to learn.
Once you learn what your body is telling you then you can tune into yourself more and lose more weight. You will know when you are really in need of a rest day or just making excuses because you just don't feel like it. That's the next thing you need to overcome. You need to learn how to assert dominance over that lazy part of you and say no, we need to get this workout in! You will also be able to say no to foods that you really don't need or even want to eat. You just wanted to chew on something.
I am going to leave you guys on a short one tonight, but I know we will be doing another podcast next week about body image. So if you have anything you want us to cover on that subject please contact me via the Facebook or Twitter pages or just comment below!
