• Psychological strategy of eating a naturally slender person

    In the now popular form of psychotherapy, neurolinguistic programming, the so-called nutrition strategy of a naturally slender person has been developed. Indeed, we often see how some people have struggled for years to reduce their weight, while others, seemingly without any special efforts, remain slim all their lives.

    What's the matter? It turns out that naturally slender people do not at all like obese people decide what to eat during the next meal.

    Slender people do not limit themselves in food, do not worry about "depriving tasty", do not force themselves to be thin.

    The nutrition strategy of a naturally slender person is based on obtaining more pleasant sensations, rather than on dietary constraints and coercion. Obese are focused only on the momentary taste of the food they eat, and slender people think that they will bring the best sensations after a while.

    These are the "food habits" of a slender man.

    Let's say you wanted to eat. Check: is it actually a famine? Do not you worry about something? Maybe you are lonely? Imagine that you ate. Has the emotional discomfort that you are experiencing has disappeared? Now imagine that you talked with a good friend, a close person. Have you felt better? If yes - hardly worth to eat: it will not help!

    So, decide: are you really hungry?

    If you are really hungry, imagine that you ate some food, and some time passed( that's how it feels, not the food, but the ones that will appear later).Remember your feelings. Then imagine how you will feel if you do not eat this food. Compare both views and decide which one suits you the most.

    If it seems to you that it is more pleasant to remain hungry, or after the mental eating of a mountain of donuts you are tormented by mental heartburn, then you should not eat this food. Yes, and hardly want, if you clearly imagine how you will become sick from something harmful to you.

    If the idea of ​​how you will feel after a while after taking this food does not cause you unpleasant sensations, then this food will not hurt you.

    Repeat the above thought process with other types of food, compare the "long-term consequences" and select the food that, after eating, will cause the most acceptable sensations.

    Now imagine how you ate this food, and feel the pleasure of what makes you feel good over time, and not at the time of eating.

    What keeps naturally slender people from eating, say, sweets?

    Nothing. Slender people eat and the most "seditious" in terms of nutritionist food - but rarely and gradually. They just imagine how a dozen cakes will be "a lump in your stomach" midnight, and this unattractive feeling does not attract slender people.

    What does a fat person who overeat?"I have a weak will, I'm such a glutton!"It's okay, to spit on a diet, even singing for your own pleasure. "Slender thinks differently: "Wow, overeaten! That's how the stomach swelled. Now I'm not going to get ready for the next party( banquet, birthday, etc.), but for now I'll do it for a couple of days. "In other words, in both cases, the defining moment is the attitude of a person to food, to his habits, but not some fatal force, explained by heredity, a greater or lesser predisposition of a person to obesity, etc., etc.

    Carried out to automatism, the above-described power strategy generates the desire to eat NORMALLY, BECAUSE THAT IS SO PLEASANT.

    Of course, not everyone can overcome psychological causes contributing to the development of obesity, independently. In those cases when psychological problems are too complicated and seem insoluble, it is worth consulting with a psychologist or a therapist.
