Dieting And Self-Restraint

Introduction And Background

Obese people often find it hard to lose weight. It is easy to tell someone to go ahead and diet and lose weight but it is not that easy to do it yourself. Obese people are obese because they love food. Only a few would be overweight because of their genes or perhaps they have some medical problem such as hypothyroidism. The rest of the world is overweight because they cannot keep their hands off food. Otherwise, every other dieter would prove to be successful and have a success story to boast about. But that is not the case. Self-restraint is very hard to achieve during a diet and only those who are really determined about weight loss are able to do so. Read on further to see how important self-restraint is and how you can achieve it.

Importance Of Self-Restraint
Self-restraint is just another word for suppressing the appetite. We all know how important and essential appetite suppression is and without it, it would be almost impossible to lose weight. Self-restraint is something you need to practice more often and only then can you truly get what you’re aiming for. Think about it, a person who is sticking to his diet and following rules and not losing his self-control would lose weight more quickly or a person who gives in to his cravings daily? Of course it would be the person who is exercising self-control on all his food desires. Thus, self-restraint is pretty important!

How To Achieve Self-Restraint In Dieting?
Now that you are aware of how vital it is to a diet, you will obviously want to know how it is possible to achieve it. Well, there are a few things you can do and they will help you a lot along the way.

  • You should drink water before every meal. It not only fills up half the capacity but it will make you feel full sooner with lesser food in your body! You will eventually get used to that amount of food and pretty soon you won’t even feel as if it is less for you. Drinking water is a good enough trick and actually healthy for your body. It will aid in digestion too and will ensure that you do not feel dehydrated during the entire time you are dieting. Thus, have water at least ten to fifteen minutes before every meal.
  • Research on food that suppress the appetite. A lot of foods have the ability to keep you content as they have substances and nutrients which alert the brain and the brain sends signals to the stomach that it is already full. It will probably help you a lot if you are aware of these foods. An example is berries and almonds. Two very different foods but with the same capability of satiety for your stomach.
  • Eat high fiber foods. They do not have many calories and you will be able to keep off of other foods if you eat high fiber foods. They feel like a heavy meal but in fact are very light and not at all fattening. Apple is a high fiber food! There are even healthy snacks available in markets which are high fiber.
  • Eat proteins for breakfast. This is the best possible solution for restraining yourself until lunch. Proteins take a longer time to digest in the stomach and not only will that be helpful for you, you won’t feel the need to grab at a bite before lunch because you’re already digesting that protein. This is why a lot of doctors tell people to eat eggs and have a proper meal for breakfast. It is the healthiest and most important meal of the day and will probably be the deciding factor for your metabolism for the rest of the day!

No matter what you do though, in the end you have to exercise a little will power over it all. These tricks will not work if your heart isn’t into it. It will only make things easier. But other than that, you have to be your own man and learn the art of appetite suppression and self-restraint. Otherwise, you will not be able to lose weight the way you want to.

Dieting is not an easy thing to do and those who think it is should try it out! In this age and time, food has become a sort of a desire for people and cannot be avoided. Its ease and availability makes it even harder to resist. You should try to resist it along with these cheat tricks and they will probably make things easier for you. But in the end, you are the game maker. You have to assess the situation and control yourself. Only then will you get what you want.
