How To Eat Whatever You Want Without Gaining Weight

Imagine a lifestyle where you can eat whatever you want without gaining weight. You only eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full, that would be fantastic? wouldn't it..?

there is this method I have heard once before and it's called intuitive eating... and it’s a way of eating that helps you to have and build a healthy relationship with food and you're body. Learning to love both is the key, Wouldn’t it be amazing to be able to eat whatever you want without worrying about what you're eating and how you'll feel thereafter ?  here are some steps and small tips i believe are useful.

1. Stop dieting and start living!!
Diets don’t work, if you want to lose weight and keep it off or just want to be a healthier version of yourself, you have to make a lifestyle change. Diets give you rules about when and what you should eat.

2. Eat when you’re hungry
this kills me.. I am always so bad at this, snacking is my enemy, but hunger is your body’s way of telling you to eat. Nourish your body by eating when  mild hunger kicks in and eat before you get ravenous.  Waiting until you’re extremely hungry may lead you to overeat.

3. Make Peace with Food, be friends not enemies 
 Slow down and eat slowly, without distraction. Give yourself unconditional permission to eat. If it’s a piece of chocolate or cake, go ahead and enjoy it without guilt.

4. Don’t expect yourself to eat perfectly
Stop categorizing food as good or bad.  Don’t expect yourself to eat perfectly — it’s not possible or even necessary.

5. Stop eating when you’re full
Learn to identify when you’re comfortably full. It’s the point when you’re no longer hungry and the food you’re eating is losing its enjoyability.

6. Make eating enjoyable
Eating should be an enjoyable, satisfying experience. Make it a special moment, set the table and sit down to eat. Value quality over quantity.

7. Don’t use food to honor your feelings
Eating shouldn’t be your main source of comfort. There are other ways to deal with your feelings that are not food-related. Take a bath, call a friend, write down your feelings or take a walk.

8. Respect Your Body! Your beautiful !
Accept and respect your body as it is now, whatever shape and size you are.

9. Exercise for your health
If you’re exercising just to burn calories, then it becomes boring. Exercise for health and energy, not to earn the right to eat or beating yourself up for eating a “bad food.”

10. Honor Your Health
When you start realizing how food actually tastes and how your body feels when you eat, then you’ll also start noticing that some foods make you feel better than others.

Meal prepping is a good one to do? and I think that helps me? and it saves me pennies and keeps me going for the week at work! having time for breakfast is also just as important as its the first meal of the day! you need all that energy! , and if you don't enjoy the taste of water add some fruit? In a filter bottle?
there are so many enjoyable ways you can jazz your food/drink intakes, to make it a lot more enjoyable!!?

let me know what you believe is an easy way to think about food? any tips and tricks?

Thanks for reading !
