Weight Loss Secrets - Get in touch with your eating habits

~~~"Without enough sleep, we all become tall two-year-olds." - JoJo Jensen, Dirt Farmer Wisdom~~~

1. Quality sleep is going to make changing your diet an easier process. One thing you should keep in mind is that digestion can interrupt deep sleep. Heavy meals late in the day can make you sleepy, but they can also keep you from getting the quality of sleep you need. The same is true of alcohol. You should avoid snacks before bedtime of grains and sugars. This will raise blood sugar and inhibit sleep. When blood sugar levels drop later in your sleep, you can awaken and not easily fall back to sleep.

~~~"When the cause of the disease is removed, the body becomes a self-healing entity." - Norman Ford~~~

2. Beyond sleep, the most important factor to your success is going to be putting yourself in what TV's Dr. Phil calls a "no-fail environment." A no-fail environment is one that has many of the foods that you can eat and none of the foods that you can't. (You can't binge on food if you don't have access to it.) You must clean out your cupboards and fridge to purge your home of the foods you shouldn't eat. Anything less would be like expecting an alcoholic to live in a bar and never give in to the temptation to drink.

~~~The belly is ungrateful--it always forgets we already gave it something. - Russian Proverb~~~

3. Live the Boy Scout motto to always "be prepared". When you leave your home, have healthy foods with you. Don't allow yourself to be in a situation in which you are forced to eat fast food because you are on the run without a healthy meal or snack.

~~~"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." -Mark Twain~~~

4. Let your family know you are changing your diet because certain foods so that they aren't tempting you with poor food choices. Don't spend time with those who are not supportive of your efforts.

~~~"Make your own recovery the first priority in your life." -Robin Norwood~~~

5. Avoid sights and smells that trigger cravings. If TV commercials for fast food and other junk food make you salivate, stop watching TV and read an uplifting book instead. Don't walk through the food court at the mall. Do whatever it takes to keep your eyes, mind, and nose away from tempting foods.

~~~"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson~~~

6. I have one more powerful aid to suggest. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is an unconventional, but effective way to help remove the burden of food addiction. EFT is based upon the principle that negative emotions have disrupted health. It is very much like acupuncture, but instead of using needles, the person taps on certain areas of the body.
