If you are having difficulty with dieting, then don’t diet! Did you know that an anti-diet can help you lose weight? How can you start anti-dieting? Here are some simple methods that you can follow to do this.

  • Make use of your senses. – To become more mindful of your eating habits, you must utilize all your five senses. According to Lilian Cheung;”This gives you more pleasure from your food, so you end up being more satisfied.” Due to this reason, you must start eating slowly. Make sure to feel each bite. Enjoy the colors in your plate and take some time to smell your food. Listen to the crunch of raw carrots and take pleasure in the texture of the creamy Greek yogurt.
  • Identify your hunger. – According to Evelyn Tribole, RD and author of Intuitive Eating;”Give yourself unconditional permission to eat when you’re hungry. But be sure it’s the stomach-rumbling, physical kind.” If you are just bored, sad or just feel like celebrating, then food is not the solution.
  • Learn to label your foods. – Based from the research in the journal Appetite, 1 in 4 dieters are labeling the foods that they’re eating. According to psychoanalyst, Carol Munter;” Part of what drives you to overeat ice cream or chips is a fixation on the allure of bad foods. Try to view all foods as being equal. This takes practice so remind your­self of your new mind-set when you catch your­self thinking Brownie equals bad, and grape equals good.”
  • Learn to slow down. – Stop smelling your dinner. Instead of doing this, sit at the table while eating your meals and make them last for 20 minutes or more. When you act slowly, you’ll be able to easily read the hunger and fullness signals of your body. To prove this claim, a study that was published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association says that;”Women consumed less, yet reported feeling fuller, when they put down their utensils between bites and chewed each mouthful 20 to 30 times.”
