In western countries more and more interest is shown to the healthy living. As nowadays many people go to the gym and care about their healthy rest, one of the post interesting points here is to mind what you eat. The method of Intuitive Eating was developed by Dr. Steven Hawks, who had been suffering from obesity for a long time. He had used to keep hard diets, which have nothing common with healthy living but couldn’t have seen good results. But one day he developed this method and was able to loose 22 kg and keep this result.
What should we know about Intuitive Eating? It’s absolutely different from any diet, as diets teach us to limit our desires, refuse our body in its demands, but it only leads to snapping and overeating.
But healthy living and intuitive eating tell us another thing: give to your body what it wants, listen to in and make it feel satisfaction. Your body knows better what it needs.
Remember, that any diet doesn’t mean healthy living, so forget about diets. You should understand that it’s false that diets help to lose weight fast, easily and forever. Concentrate on the intuitive eating.
Healthy living means respecting your body. Respect the fact that you are hungry, too. Give yourself a relevant amount of energy and carbohydrates.
Understand the first signals of your hunger, so that you can make a friendship between you, food and healthy living. It’s necessary to understand that you eat to satisfy your hunger.
Moreover, stop counting! Healthy living has nothing common with strict numbers of how much you ate, which only blame you. Let yourself to eat. “Fruit often tastes sweeter when it’s forbidden” – don’t forbid anything.
Listen to your body when it says that it ate enough. Think how you feel when you are well-fed and mind this feeling. While eating thing about the taste and your prosperity.
Asian people care about healthy living much. They believe that eating is a real pleasure. They eat when they are hungry, they stop when their stomach is filled. When you eat your favorite food in a nice atmosphere, you can get much more pleasure from it. You may even notice that less food will be enough for you. Enjoy your every piece, as if you didn’t get pleasure with the quality of food and the atmosphere while eating, your mind will make you get satisfaction with its amount.
Another important step in healthy living is to respect your feelings without food. Find the ways to calm yourself down, switch to something else or praise without food. Food will not help you to cope with anger, loneliness, boredom, anxiety. It can only comfort you for some time.
It’s also necessary to respect your body: accept your genetics. Be realistic and not too strict to yourself. Love and respect yourself, no matter how much your weight is.
Be active. Mind your moving, not training for losing weight. Concentrate on the effect after your exercises.
Respect your health – intuitive eating means sensible eating. Choose the products which will care about your health. To be healthy you don’t need keeping a strong diet.
Mind your own progress – only what you eat for a long time matters, not your weight numbers.
