Set yourself up for success
First things first. If you want to change your lifestyle, you need to set yourself up for success. This means that you absolutely must take away anything that could send you right back down the alley of old behavioral patterns (yes, you should throw that bag of chips away). But it also means that you should invest in things that make the creation of new habits as easy as possible. If you want to lose weight for example, a smart body analysis scale is a great tool to keep track of your progress.
Are you really hungry?
Now that your Tanita scale is ready to provide you with accurate information about your progress, it’s time to inform yourself about how your hormones can become allies in your journey towards a healthier life. Did you know that your hormones can make you feel hungry when you actually aren’t? It is simply impossible to follow through on a strict diet when your hormones are working against you. This isn’t your fault. The first thing you need to know is that hormones are the ones responsible for your feelings of hunger and satiation. Unfortunately, they aren’t always giving you the correct signal. They can make you feel like eating when you are hours away from actually needing food.
Peaks and lows
Get your hormones on your team and losing weight will be the byproduct of feeling great. Learning this simple lifestyle trick will make your life lighter and easier. Before you know it, the numbers on the scale are flying down. Your hormones respond to peaks and lows in blood sugar levels. Low blood sugar means hungry. Except that it doesn’t. Not with our modern day diets that cause rapid peaks and instant lows. This fluctuation leaves you feeling drained and empty. Get your hormones back on track by stabilizing your blood sugar. This is all you need to focus on. Cut out all processed foods and don’t use artificial sweeteners. Eat what mother nature provides, simple as that, and your are on your way to hormonal health and a healthy weight for life.
