How to reduce appetite? Psychological receptions - myths and reality of

the psychology can Promote loss of appetite.

Scientists from Wisconsin suggest to photograph food before meal and only after that to eat it.

If in an hour it wants to eat again in spite of the fact that the stomach is still occupied with digestion of the last portion, it is necessary to look at a photo, and appetite “will be ashamed“. To photograph food - all the same that to keep a peculiar food diary.

Long ago it is established that such diaries help to order food, to control it. But our records in a notebook are often subjective, we do them how ate. And the photo of a dish allows to create more objective representation. The idea is, at first sight, good. But there are many nuances.

We will begin with the fact that the photodiary is good for visual learners - people who perceive the most part of information through sight. This way will not be suitable for audial, it is better for them to pronounce aloud the list of what they ate. But it is not all.

Both the diary, and photos, and pronunciation suit only very scrupulous people who love an order. That who, going on a diet, is ready to weigh food to gram, to count each calorie. That who likes to display the life on shelves. It is not sure that among women such there is a lot of. In total - we are in the bulk emotional and impulsive. Sooner or later to us will bother to save a photo with the image of food. Or we will leave the camera at home. What then - failure?

The technique has also one more minus: it forces us to go in cycles in food. From the psychological point of view, it is wrong. Even if you need really to lose excess weight, leaving in persistence of the thoughts of food can strongly strain and exhaust you.

Also it can limit your circle of contacts - not everything interesting to discuss your diet or the piece of meat tried by you. And still it often gives rise to an inferiority complex: “Today on a photo something too big lunch, so I postroyneyu never“. It will be much better if you postpone the camera away and you will concentrate on the feelings. What emotions in you are caused by this or that food? What you want at present? To develop in itself sensitivity to the flavoring preferences and feelings - much more effective method of fight against the increased appetite.

Some consider that it is possible to bridle appetite by means of the most usual hours. When you eat, they need to be put before yourself and to strictly watch that the lunch lasted not less than 20 minutes. Then will better and better be digested, and it will want to eat not soon. Whether there is in it a sense?

I would not advise you so to do. Yes, the thought of what should be eaten not less than twenty minutes is quite good. It is known that during this time from a stomach the brain is reached by a signal of saturation. But to set before itself clock absolutely excessively.

In this method the element of violence over the personality is very accurately looked through. Eating on hours, you drive yourself into a framework, put in unusual conditions. And what if the lunch ends earlier? You will be anxious? To reproach itself? You will go for an additive to prolong a meal till the necessary time?

There is also one more very important point. Looking for hours, you will distract. Since the childhood say to us what cannot be eaten and read at the same time. Advise during a lunch to switch off the TV. The hours facing you - from the same logical row.

Unfortunately, the western civilization belongs to food without due respect. In this sense to us is to what to learn at Asia. There meal is almost sacrament, a unification with the world. During a lunch of people it is concentrated only on food. And we, chewing sandwich under the blockbuster, we swallow together with it emotions superfluous, not necessary to us. We do not pay attention to what we eat. And it is no wonder that in an hour - other appetite comes back. Perhaps we also provided an organism with proteins, fats and carbohydrates, but did not let it know that we care for it.

Therefore do not set clock on a table, you and without it will spend at dinner the put 20 minutes. The main thing - enjoy what you eat.

Speak not to gorge on for the night, it is necessary to clean at eight in the evening hours teeth. Then you will purely psychologically be adjusted on what cannot be eaten more today.

But it will help only if you in the childhood were very obedient child. Be not surprised: our “relations“ with food are very often connected with how with us our parents behaved. To refuse the easiest some delicacies or to give itself installation on what after toothbrushing cannot be eaten happens that on whom in the childhood pressed a little.

If since the childhood of people had to follow too strict instructions, then and he will ignore “the rule of a toothbrush“. The matter is that bans even in kids give rise to a protest. As a result, having matured, we begin to resist subconsciously. The head we understand that these or those actions can help us. But useful, it seems, recommendations we perceive all these as the order to which we refuse to submit.

By the way, most of all people with an excess weight are inclined to resistance to direct instructions. History from practice of the outstanding psychologist Milton G. Eriksson is known. To it the woman weighing 95 kilograms and wishing to grow thin on 20 came to reception. Its any councils did not help. And it was solved on the unusual course. On the next reception he told the client: “I give you month. During this time you have to recover. At our next meeting you have to weigh 115 kilograms. Otherwise you can not come“. In a month she grew thin to seventy. The strict return recommendation had effect.

If you the person of this kind - and all orders from the outside subconsciously perceive in bayonets, toothbrushing will not help. Nobody can prevent to open for you the refrigerator and to eat something.

Otherwise everything can turn out. If parents explained to you why something needs to be made so, but not differently if they were capable to listen to you, allowed you to undertake something independently, then it will be simple to limit itself in food to you. You will just understand that it is useful. Having decided once that it is necessary to brush teeth at eight in the evening, and after is not, you will follow this rule.

And you will sometimes dare to recede from a habit without any pangs of conscience. And then easily you will return to it.
