If you’ve ever wondered whether you were the only person to have questions about dieting, know that you are definitely not alone. And you aren’t alone if you worry about your weight, as millions of people do. But did you know that worrying about it can actually result in unwanted weight gain? The stress of worrying can actually increase your body’s production of cortisol, a stress hormone which can cause fat to deposit around your midsection. Not only that, but high cortisol levels over a long period of time will make it more difficult to lose the weight you want.
Being afraid of food may not be something you’ve ever considered, especially if the love of food has caused you to gain unwanted weight. But trying to figure out how to eat healthily can strike fear into the hearts of many a dieter. The good news is that it’s possible to make the choosing and eating of healthy foods a positive habit, even though it make take time. And for those who wonder about portion control, The Diet Mindset advises that this may not be the be all and end all. Instead, it’s suggested that you concentrate on what your body is telling you as you eat; eating when you are hungry and then only until you are satisfied can help you lose just as much weight.
