If you dream of the body of a Greek god or goddess, you don't have to battle one-eyed monsters or hurl thunderbolts - simply eating like the ancient idols can help you get a body that people will worship.
The Mediterranean way of eating, which is a diet meal plan featuring plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fish, olive oil and red wine, can help you attain the ideal figure. The Mediterranean diet has also been linked to a healthier heart and a longer life span. Foods with refined sugar, red meat, and fatty dairy products are rarely consumed, if ever.
Thousands of years after the powerful gods shook things up, the Mediterranean style of eating still makes great sense as a weight loss diet because you get full on a lot of high-fiber, low fat foods that leave you feeling satiated longer. The fruits and vegetables eaten as part of the Mediterranean diet are naturally low in calories, and are chock full of antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, elements your body must have to create new and healthy cells.
The Mediterranean diet permits a higher fat intake than most weight loss diet plans, but it is healthy fat that comes from olive oil and nuts, which are rich in beneficial monounsaturated fats, and low in unhealthy saturated fats, like those found in cheese, ice-cream or beef.
Just bear in mind that for higher calorie items, like the red wine, olive oil and whole grains, you still must focus on overall calorie intake and serving sizes. The key to any successful weight loss meal plan is consuming fewer calories while still feeling satisfied.
When you feel satiated, it makes it a little easier to defeat cravings that most people who are trying to follow a weight loss diet go through. What good is a diet if you cannot remain on it because your appetite is out of control? Before starting any weight loss diet, you will need to find a safe, effective method to eliminate your urges, cravings and appetite to overeat.Lose weight hypnotherapy is a wonderful resource to help you curb your cravings.
The average person feels cravings and an urge to eat for two key reasons:
A. When you pair eating with any other behavior, the other behavior will trigger cravings and an impulse to eat.
B. When you feel tension, you feel compelled to put something into your mouth for pleasure and relaxation.
Let's examine Part "A" first. Over 70% of the population learns much more quickly and easily by seeing, rather then by hearing. Think about it: If you have an urge to eat when watching TV, it's because your mind recorded the video image of food in your hand, and then associated that image with the image of the television. From that point, each time you watch television, your unconscious flashes the image of the food in your hand, and you get a corresponding urge.
You have actually "programmed" your unconscious to make you feel cravings and urges as a "conditioned response" to watching television. The same thing occurs when you eat in your car or while on the telephone, etc.
Weight loss hypnotherapy will eliminate the conditioned responses easily by reprogramming your mind to have it trigger unconscious images of you watching the television without eating, and that will eliminate the urge to eat. It will also give you an urge to reject food in that scenario!
But what about Part "B"? Our sensations of stress are created by our thoughts. If you think negative thoughts, you feel tense and upset. If you think happy thoughts, you feel happy and relaxed.
If you have an upsetting thought seated at your computer, your mind will associate that thought with the computer. Thereafter, when you are sitting at your computer, you have a conditioned response; your mind will flash to that negative thought and you feel anxiety. Self hypnosis techniques can help you overcome these patterns almost immediately.
The techniques used in the most effective self-hypnosis programs are based on Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). This technology works by using a person's existing thought processes instead of post-hypnotic suggestion.
Video weight loss self-hypnosis can program your subconscious to use negative thoughts as a trigger for comforting thoughts. So if you start to think of something that is distressing, your unconscious will automatically change to a relaxing thought in a millisecond. You become relaxed, so there are no sensations of anxiety to set off your cravings. And without an appetite to overeat, it is easy to lose weight and keep it off permanently.
Adhering to a sensible diet plan, like the Mediterranean style, along with weight loss hypnosis means you can finally overcome your cravings to attain the body of a Greek god or goddess.
