How to Lose Weight but Never Go Hungry Again-pt. 2

fruits-386758__180

This is our 2nd Wellness Tip in our 8-part weight loss series that began last week and will continue for the next 7 weeks. These tips confirm you don’t have to be hungry in order to lose weight.

This week we will consider that we can actually eat as much as we want, when we want, and still lose weight.

How is that possible, you ask? Here’s the secret:

Wellness Tip #2: Fall in love with the right foods.

Whoa, you say! What kinds of foods are those?

Real foods. Fresh foods. Foods with no added chemicals, excess salt or sugars, hidden fats or preservatives.

Plant-based foods such as fruits, veggies, and raw nuts for starters. Here’s a great guide on this subject!

These foods have higher fiber content so they fill you up. They taste good naturally. You don’t have to worry about counting calories when you eat them.

No dieting. You can eat all you want, when you want. Without feeling hungry. And, still lose weight.

Now, those are good foods!

The Experiment: Head to the store and buy your favorite raw fruits, veggies and nuts (no added oil or salt). Try eating just raw fruits and veggies plus a handful of raw nuts for one meal daily this week, and for any snack as you feel hungry. Gradually eliminate foods and drinks from your regular diet that are high in fat and sugar. Be patient with your tastebuds. They’ll fall in love with the right foods if you just give them a chance.

And, don’t forget to be mindfully thankful for what you eat.

Silence Your Inner Critic: You don’t think that you will like these foods. You think you will still be hungry. You think you can’t possibly lose weight if you’re not on a diet. Just try the experiment anyway. Give yourself and your tastebuds a little time. You can adapt a new way of thinking and eating.
