2. Calm down and make a deep analyze of your current situation
Food addiction is the same thing as drug addiction. It cannot be stopped in an instance and you can’t convert to healthy food overnight. The first thing what you need to do is to calm down and make an analyze of you current situation. How much weight do you want to lose, how long it will take it, what method are you doing to use etc. We recommend you to follow this simple 10 methods in order to be healthier, more beautiful and to lose weight.
The first step which you need to do is to stop consuming sweets, artificial sweeteners and all forms of sugar. They just slow down your metabolism, store fat in your body and provoke food cravings. Next you need to eliminate all food which contains trans fat. Read the labels before buying food and stick to fresh food.
3. Avoid beverages which contain calories
Beverages which contain sugar or some kind of artificial sweetener have more calories than you can imagine. Try to avoid sodas, juices which are not homemade, sport and energy drinks, iced tea, coffee to go. The sugar from these drinks goes directly to your liver where it stores and also they make digestion more difficult and slow.
Just for the record, one 20-ounce soda has 15 teaspoons of sugar; Gatorade contains 14 teaspoons of sugar only in one bottle. One can of soda a day increases a kid’s chance of being obese by 60% and a woman’s chance of type 2 diabetes by 80%.
4. Consumer proteins for extra energy.
Start the day with big protein breakfast and you will have energy during the day. This will prevent your food cravings during the day and it will provide you energy for all of your activities. Also consume healthy snacks between meals such a nuts, seed, almond etc. Consume meat for your main meal but be careful the servings not to pass the size of your palm.
5. Eat healthy carbohydrates
Probably you don’t know that vegetables are rich in carbs and that you can consume them as much as you like. The non-starchy veggies such as greens, anything in the broccoli family (cauliflower, kale, collards),asparagus, green beans, mushrooms, onions, zucchini, tomatoes, fennel, eggplant, artichokes, and peppers should come first on your list. Avoid potatoes, sweet potatoes, grains, beans.
6. Don’t avoid fats.
Don’t try to avoid fats just because you believe that they make you fat. This is not true. Sugar makes you fat that is what you need to avoid. Fats keep you full for long time; give you extra energy and strength. Add olive oil, coconut butter, omega 3 fats to your diet and you will feel amazing.
7.Food cravings will arise from time to time and that is OK..
Your blood sugar will drop eventually and in that moment you will have to give extra fuel to your body. But before you reach for the vending machine or fast food restaurant you need to be aware that in that way you are importing junk to your body and your body is your temple. The best thing you can do is to be ready for these emergencies even before they happen. Pack a small pack of nuts, almonds, walnuts, seed, fruit, vegetables, wild salmon or anything else which you prefer.
8. Get rid of stress.
Stress is your enemy and you should get rid of it. When your body is stress than the hormone cortisol goes up and this makes you hungry and in need of comfort food. But next time when you are stressed and you reach for food all you need to do is wait one second and take a deep breath. Studies show that taking deep breaths activates a special nerve, called the vagus nerve, that shifts your metabolism from fat storage to fat burning and quickly moves you out of the stress state
9. Calm the inflammation.
Inflammation creates imbalance of the sugar level in your blood and makes you feel hungry. It is proven that another source of sugar and trans fats are gluten and diary. Try to cut these two out of your diet for 10 days. At first it won’t be easy because our body is used to them but after several days as your body recovers from the shock you will feel better and you will have more energy.
