Everyone women that I train has different strengths, weaknesses, and eating patterns. I tell my ladies that you will only become successful when you learn to respond to your own feelings and not to what someone else says is right for you.
It is critical that you learn how to be aware of and attend to both feelings of hunger and fullness, and learn what will satisfy you both physically and psychologically.
Ladies Your own body, not someone else’s estimated guess, is the very best guide for how much you need to eat.
So, try to get in the habit of tuning in to your internal cues of hunger, and not just eating the amount of food you think you should to be “good.”
It’s okay to eat any amount of food to feel both physically and psychologically satisfied. But the real trick is you must learn to stop when you feel comfortably full, not stuffed.
In addition to learning how it feels to be hungry, full, and uncomfortably full, you must learn from your mistakes.
If you eat past comfortable fullness, don’t beat yourself up about it. There are bound to be times when you eat too much for your body’s comfort. That’s normal.
Just try to remember how eating too much feels, and remind yourself of this feeling the next time you are tempted to overeat.
With practice, you will change your eating patterns and start eating when your body tells you you’re hungry … and stop eating once you begin to feel comfortably full and satisfied.
This is especially important because restaurant and coffee shop portions are completely out of control.
For example, one muffin and a coffee drink can set you back 800 calories! You can only imagine what some of the calories can add up to on an oversized restaurant plate!
When dishing up your plate, use this general guideline as a good starting point. Remember, you can always go back for more if you’re truly still hungry.
If you use the strategy for dishing up your portions taught at the link above … and you then listen closely to your body to know when you should push away, you just cannot go wrong.
You don’t have to eat everything on your plate just because it’s there.
Someone in total control who’s listening closely to his/her body, knows that it’s alright to leave a few bites on your plate, because they’ve determined they’ve had enough.
It’s really empowering once you’ve learned this skill just like Kati my Realfit Success story , and I think you’ll be amazed at the results that will soon follow.
