Would you like to Change but still like Chocolate and Alcohol?
If there's one thing that you need to understand it's the fact that, changing your eating habits to better, more balanced ones that will help you to lose weight and eventually live longer, doesn't have to be a struggle.
It takes most people years to get to the stage of being obese, and even to the stage where they are carrying just a little too much body weight, so you can't expect to reverse any long term habits overnight.
Even making a few small changes to your eating habits can have a dramatic effect on your weight when viewed over a longer period of time. Just the reduction of a hundred or so calories a day will amount to a very large reduction in calories over the term of one year and that will also amount to a sizeable decrease in body fat. This can be done by simply removing a small portion of the amount of food you consume with each meal. If you find that this is causing more than normal hunger, have a glass of water a half hour or so before each meal and you will be less inclined to feel like you require more food.
You can replace a similar quantity of low value food with good food, and this will also reduce hunger and will help to lose weight. By doing it in this manner you will find that you will begin to enjoy the 'new' foods in your diet just as you learnt to enjoy the poor foods that you have been eating up to this stage of your life.
Many people find it hard to accept that they will be able to get the same enjoyment out of the food that they know they should be eating, but that is only because they have been accustomed to the tastes of the food they eat at the current time. A good example of this is the reaction people have to drinking a cup of tea with sugar in it after they have stopped having sugar for a while. Most people find it difficult to drink as it seems too sweet after having been without it for some time.
