Most people think that being on a diet means you need to learn how to be hungry.
That’s a HUGE mistake. Hunger is the #1 enemy of a successful diet.
To successfully lose a lot of weight, your thinking, rational self needs to be in control over a long period of time (it could be months or even years in some cases). But when you let yourself become hungry, you relinquish control to your lizard brain.
I’m HUNGRY the lizard brain screams – and while your rational self may fight the overwhelming impulse to eat for a little while, it quickly loses control and you find yourself standing in front of the refrigerator doing the nasty with a baguette and a bucket of Humus.
The surest safest way to lose weight is to establish a meal schedule that’s low on calories, but keeps you content and full 95% of the time.
