Happy New Year!
I'm grateful for the privilege of starting this new year with you.
Today's cheat sheet gives you a foolproof formula that lets you easily push away extra food, and feel good doing it.
Do you struggle to stop eating when you know you've had enough?
Do you feel like it's wrong to waste food?
Here are 3 Steps to Feel Great about Eating Less:
Step 1: The 5-Second Pause
Pick up your first bite of food. Hold it for a moment and pause. Really look at the bite and think to yourself...
"I am present and I am easily satisfied."
Step 2: Program Yourself to Eat Less
You may be surprised to know you're already programming yourself.
You may have been programming yourself for failure by telling yourself not to overeat which just makes you want to overeat even more.
Fears are like wishes. Being afraid to eat too much makes you more likely to do it!
Shift your self-talk!
Say, "It's easy to walk away from extra food."
Then imagine yourself putting the extra food away or throwing it away when you've had just enough.
This imagination exercise is your new wish so it becomes easy to actually do it.
Try it even if it seems too simple and even if you don't believe it yet.
Step 3: ACT like you're done
This one's a little weird, but there's a ton of science behind why it works.
Use BODY LANGUAGE to send an "I'm content" signal to the brain.
Here's how to do it:
Partway through the meal, physically push the food away from you.
Make a disgusted face and think or say out loud....
"Ugh, I just couldn't eat another bite!"
You'll be shocked by how well this works.
Here's how you can be sure to remember to use this 3 step formula:
Right now, imagine having your next meal.
- Pausing with your first bite and saying, "I'm easily satisfied."
- Pushing the food away and making a face at it and saying, "I've had enough!"
- Putting extra food away or throwing it away when you've had the appropriate amount to maintain your desired weight.
By rehearsing this now, you're training your body and mind to remember to use this effective formula next time you eat.
That's all there is to it!
I hope you love this tip and I hope you try it out and let me know how well it works.
