Community Task: Journal or blog about an area of your lifestyle that needs moderation. What can you do to change your attitude ... and future outcomes?
The area of my life that requires moderation most is my food and portion control. I wish to get my food in total control, (I eat healthy but my portions can be out of control atimes) when I am not at that time of the month I am able to do things right but at that time, it seems something is not working right. I seems to use food to suppress something I don't know yet but its there. Maybe its the craziness of my hormones, maybe its PMS, I cannot actually say.
...but I know the very first solution to all this problem is a WILL, self will, strong will, a desire to do what is right, to continue eating healthy and in the right portions. I scarcely take soda, am not sugar freak at all, I eat fried things with minimal oil and I try to eat less bread, so am able to say I eat right but I am not an authority over my portion sizes all the time.
...apart from my will, I read articles on portion control and to keep them under, they will always be there to help me out.
...also calorie counting is a good way out, when I realized how much that small contains I will keep it lower and make sure am still within my caloric range for the day.
...now the use of small dishes can really be my way out, and waiting for some minutes before a second helping. I will try that to see how it will help.
...right now am doing this 3:1 dieting, i.e. eating at my highest calorie range for 3 days and below the lowest for a day and the cycle continues that way. I was able to break a plateau that way and I hope to see the scale come down. A friend also introduced a 5:2 dieting to me (ave not tried that) i.e. 5 days eating and any 2 days fasting. I will continue with this and I think its something I can maintain for a very very long time.
The future outcome I hope for is a reduction in my weight, an improved health and a longer life and able body.
Thanks for reading, we shall all get there.
