Scope of self-restraint


A person from a small age is taught to do everything according to the pattern - using the general scheme, the adopted decision algorithm. But if in childhood it is really necessary and allows you to adapt in a complex world, then with the age, this habit of driving yourself into the frame significantly hinders. We are lost in unplanned situations, are not able to approach the problem creatively and see an effective solution if it is beyond our stereotypes.
In the case of overweight, such frameworks are artificially created barriers or banal "excuses," allowing under a plausible pretext to relieve themselves of responsibility for their slender body.
So, let's consider this psychological phenomenon in more detail.

1. To lose weight, you need a lot of willpower.
The opinion about the weakness of people with excess body weight is absolutely wrong. What kind of willpower must be possessed to wear 20-30 kilograms of excess weight daily? It's like taking full buckets from morning till night.
Contrary to the generally accepted opinion about the lack of will of complete people, psychology says the opposite. It is the full people, men and women, suffering from excess body weight, for the most part possess an enviable force of will. Just think about your achievements that are already in your life today!
Responsible leaders of different levels, mothers who have raised several children, people who have experienced serious difficulties in life, largely succeeded boys and girls ... It is with such successful people that we most often meet in our groups, and they can not be called helpless.
The problem is that, striving for harmony, a person naturally relies on what he really believes. However, success in the process of acquiring harmony is determined not by will. Remember this as hard as possible: no one has found a long-term harmony by strong-willed efforts. The will that you already have is enough, and additional training is unnecessary. The task is to redirect some of your volitional efforts to yourself and transform into care.
In fact, losing weight can be easy, and pleasant, and joyful, and willpower is required for this no more than for cleaning the house.
2. To lose weight, you need to move more.
This is true if it concerns men. But as for women ... Remember the sign of the recent past - women in orange vests, laying on the roads asphalt. Can you imagine a slender girl with a shovel loaded with hot asphalt?
On their groups, we repeatedly met fitness trainers who could not get rid of extra pounds with the help of physical education. In the best case, women (due to the peculiarities of physiology) sport and physical activity only help to maintain the achieved result. And no wonder: to spend the energy received from eating a 100-gram bun, you have to walk 10 kilometers.
When losing weight, a person limits himself to food, which in itself is stress for the body. When you add more and physical stress in the form of increased motor load, you get "stress squared."
Hence it is clear that all effective methods should firstly help to limit energy consumption, and exhausting physical education is not necessary and even harms.
3. To lose weight, you need to starve.
To normalize the weight, you need to limit the amount of food you eat. Someone gives it easily and simply, but someone suffers from hunger pangs. Let's see why this happens. The ease of losing weight is caused by getting rid of food dependence and changed eating habits. And then the amount of food eaten, at which intensive weight loss will occur, will even be subjectively high. I remember the words of one of our patients: "Previously, I bought a bar of chocolate and immediately consumed it, not even having time to fully wrap the wrapper. One chocolate business was not limited. Now, having got rid of addiction to sweets, I eat one tiny piece of chocolate and I get the same pleasure as before from all the tiles. "

Do you feel the difference? Believe me, we constantly hear from people who are on low-calorie diet and reduce weight: "Satiety comes from several pieces of food, and in order to" meet "the proposed minimum calorie content, I have to force myself to eat more." Such a rapid saturation with a small amount of food is the result of getting rid of food dependence. Therefore, almost any person can reduce weight without a painful sense of hunger.
We are convinced that, reducing weight, we must avoid the painful feeling of hunger. Only in this case it is possible to hope for a long-term result. In addition, it is very important to be able to distinguish physiologically the feeling of hunger from appetite. And appetite is a completely different story, and about it a little later.
So, dear reader, it's time to get rid of the ballast and put and go beyond the boundaries of the framework. Believe me, this process can be quite simple. As in this parable.
Once my husband asked my wife why she, when frying fish, cuts half of the carcass with her tail. She said that she does this automatically only because in her childhood, the mother, when cooking fish, did just that. When the same question was asked by the mother-in-law, she said that she had never thought about what it was, just a long time ago she had learned this from her mother. When the grandmother of the wife was visiting her husband, she told that there was only one small frying pan in their house, and to cut her fish, she had to cut off the edible mouth of the fish along with the tail.
Therefore, leave your own previous experience of weight loss in the past or for memoirs. Since you are reading this book today, it means that the problem of extra pounds is still relevant for you. Of course, some of the previous experience will come in handy, but much later. After all, the main idea of ​​this book is to get rid of how it was, and learn how it will be.

  13. Causes of gene diseases (using the example of esimopathies)
