Using Psychology to Lose Weight Will Get You There

There is definitely a psychological side to your eating and weight. No question about it. Take for instance the old adage, only eat when you are hungry. How possible is that? Do you only eat when you are hungry? Of course not. No one follows this course of action.

We eat and overeat and eat lots of fattening food for many different reasons. We do it because the sights and smells of food stimulate us, not only our senses but our psyches as well. We indulge our appetites because we anticipate the enjoyment we will get from eating. That’s psychological, isn’t it? Food is often our savior when we are feeling blue, tired, anxious, or worried. Another example of psychology. 

If you establish a mindset of restricting your food intake in order to try to lose some weight and you keep this mindset wherever you go, you are likely to be more sensitive to environmental cues that lead to eating and less sensitive to your own internal hunger cues. Again, psychology is at work here.

So if you want to lose weight, truly want to lose that unwanted weight of yours, guess what? Using psychology to lose weight will be what gets you there.
