If you eat little and often and have glass of water between, theres no reason at all for you to be hungry. Are you leaving it for hours before you eat again..? that wont help the weight loss either, because if you go into that mode, the body reacts by 'holding on to the fat, because it has no idea if or when the next food is coming' and THAT fat is the hardest to rid yourself of.
If you have a decent breakfast, then something at mid morning then lunch at midday 30 then afternoon snack at 315 then tea/dinner at 530-6 .... theres times in between those that if you need you can have water or mineral or juice... A lot of dieticians tell us, that sometimes when we think we are hungry, we arent really , we are thirsy. Thirst often presents as hungry, so you not alone there. But next time you feel hungry try having a glass of water... BUT DRUNK SLOWLY NOT GULPED
I used to think I was hungry at times, and go for the chocy. Cos its a quickfix and easier than waiting for potatoes or healthy food to be made ready. THIS was totally wrong and I learnt from that. But to get me off the chocolate...
Ladies, this works....
Dyou know what I did? Well ok you obvously dont and sorry to have asked such an outragously stupid question there, but...
I USED to (and this is now very much in the past) crave chocolate.
The way I did it, was...
First let me say that there is nothing worse to me to eat than STALE ryvita (originals) They taste like corrogated cardboard (not that Iv eaten any cardboard, corrogated or otherwise) but U understand where Im coming from yeah?
So if you LIKE ryvitas this wont work for you. If you dont, it will.
((If you do JUST FIND something else that would have the same effect the ryvita has on the haters of it.))
EVERYTIME you think you want chocolate, have a stale ryvita.
(You get them stale by leaving the packet open!!!)
Its a mind over matter thing that really does work..i know it does, cos I did it. So thats proof enough for me to be able to pass to you lot 100% plus!
Pretty soon, your brain will realise that it is asking for chocolate and you are giving it stale ryvitas, which it certainly doesnt like, so in the end your brain stops asking.
This takes about a week to a fortnight.
THAT was about 18mths to 2years ago and I did it. AND iv not touched chocolate since.
With some the time may be shorter, others will lapse and time will be longer.
If you lapse, DONT feel guilty about it, just start the count again... from after the guilty deed.
