Changing Our Ways of Weight Loss, Having a Different Mindset
Body image continues to be a struggle for many people. Current fashion magazines and TV commercials constantly put pressure on men and women to maintain a certain figure or look. Hundreds upon hundreds of weight loss programs advertise their miracle wonders, claiming that their solutions work. But what is a fake and what actually works? What can we do to feel good about ourselves, our body image?
Through self-regulation and body image sessions, a new review has shared some simple tips for building a positive self, ultimately leading to a body image, better health, and weight loss. A recent study has taken a closer look at behavior changes among a group of obese women who went through a year-long weight loss program. Instead of controlling the way you eat, such as counting calories, the results of this study focused on changing the way you think about your body and focusing more on what your body feels and making the right decisions for your body.
Some factors to concentrate on within self-regulation include having confidence for success, being semi-conscious of what you consume and make healthier choices, paying attention to the reason you are eating and what emotions you feel before you eat, and realizing whether you’re really hungry when you eat. By tuning into your body, this self-regulation may bring surprising results.
In addition, the article touches upon how we view our bodies. It suggests for women to run through some body image sessions daily, exercising our acceptance and improvement of our bodies instead of disdain and hatred. By creating a more positive image of yourself, the article reported that women were more happy with themselves and more motivated to continue with healthy weight loss.
