Lose Weight Fast! Try the Mediterranean Diet and Self Hypnosis
Do you wish for the body of a Greek god or goddess? There is a way of eating that can help in that venture, along with a way of thinking that can make weight loss easy and fastIf you wish for the body of a Greek god or goddess, you don''t have to hurl thunderbolts or battle one-eyed monsters - simply eating like the ancient idols may help you get a physique that people will worship.
The Mediterranean way of eating, which is a diet plan that includes plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, olive oil, fish, whole grains and red wine, can help you achieve the ideal figure. The Mediterranean diet meal plan has also been linked to a healthier heart and a longer life span. Fatty dairy products, red meat, and foods with refined sugar 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 large amounts of low fat, high-fiber foods that leave you feeling satiated longer. The vegetables and fruits eaten as part of the Mediterranean way of eating are naturally low in calories, and are full of antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, things your body needs to create new and healthy cells.
The Mediterranean way of eating allows a higher fat intake than most weight loss diets, but it is healthy fat that comes from nuts and olive oil, which are rich in beneficial monounsaturated fats, and low in unhealthy saturated fats, like those found in ice-cream, cheese or beef.
Just keep in mind that for higher calorie foods, like the whole grains, olive oil and red wine, you still must focus on serving sizes and overall calorie intake. The secret to any successful weight loss plan is consuming fewer calories while still feeling satisfied.
When you feel sated, it makes it a little easier to defeat cravings that many people who are trying to follow a weight loss diet face. What good is a diet if you cannot stick to it because your appetite is out of control? Before starting any weight loss meal plan, you''ll need to find a safe, effective technique to eliminate your urges, cravings and appetite to overeat.Weight loss self hypnosis is a wonderful resource to help you curb your cravings.
The average person experiences cravings and an urge to eat for two main reasons:
A. When you pair eating with any other behavior, the other behavior will trigger cravings and a compulsion to eat.
B. When you feel tense, you feel compelled to put something into your mouth for relaxation and pleasure.
Let''s look at 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 television, 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, every time you watch television, your unconscious mind flashes the image of the food in your hand, and you get an urge.
You''ve actually "programmed" your unconscious to make you feel cravings and urges as a "conditioned response" to watching television. The same thing happens when you eat in your car or while on the telephone, etc.
Lose weight self hypnosis will erase the conditioned responses simply 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 feelings of anxiety are created by our thoughts. If you think negative thoughts, you feel tension and upset. If you think happy thoughts, you feel happy and relaxed.
If you think an upsetting thought while you are sitting 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 flashes to that negative thought and you feel anxiety. Weight loss self-hypnosis techniques can help you overcome these patterns almost immediately.
The techniques used in the most successful hypnosis programs are based on Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). This technology works based on the utilization of a person''s existing thought processes instead of post-hypnotic suggestion.
Video weight loss hypnosis can program your unconscious to use negative thoughts as a trigger for tranquilizing thoughts. So if you start to think of something that is distressing, your unconscious mind will automatically change to a relaxing thought in a millisecond. You become calm, so there are no feelings of tension to produce your cravings. And without an appetite to overeat, it is much easier to lose weight and keep it off forever.
Following a sensible weight loss meal plan, like the Mediterranean style, along with self hypnosis means you can finally beat your cravings to get the body of a Greek god or goddess.
