The Mind-Body-Spirit Diet

The Mind-Body-Spirit diet isn’t just a normal ‘diet’, infact it isn’t so much a diet, but more a long-term plan that can help you lose weight and keep the weight off. I must warn you, if you’re the kind of person that loves eating big amounts of food without thinking twice about the consequences then this diet will be challenging (to start off with). However, if you are serious about losing weight and/or maintaining your weight then this “diet” is for you.
First of all, you may be wondering a little bit about this diet (or perhaps you’re thinking ‘shut up and get to the point’, in which I would be thinking too, if I were you.. but I promise I’ll get there..). Here are some questions and answers:
Question: How long am I to go on this diet before I see results? [EAT WHATEVER YOU DESIRE] but…
1) Think-before-you-eat
Before you consume such a food, think about how it makes you feel afterwards. It may make you feel groggy afterwards… so is it worth consuming? 2) Decide if you really want it or you are just consuming it because of boredom? Empty calories on empty time don’t equal fun. 3) Have small portions
If you have smaller portions of the food you love then not only will you not be overdoing it but you’ll be valueing it so much more because you know there is only a small amount infront of you.
4) Balance your meals
If you feel like pancakes for breakfast then whats stopping you? This way you are helping to get all food groups into your diet and aren’t fulling your body of unwanted fat/sugar.
5) Eat till you are satisfied. You should eat till you are satisfied. 6) Eat slowly and thoughtfully
Which means don’t scoff your food down and don’t do other things will eating food (such as driving, watching tv or going on the computer). Enjoy your food – every mouthful.
Because whats the point of eating it when it doesn’t taste as good anymore? By this point you would have been satisfied.
