Is eating self-control a myth?


Your body controls itself and has complete control over how fast it burns fat.

If you want to trim some pounds or take control of eating, tune-in to your body.

If you force yourself to lose weight, you are violating natural physical laws. Your body will rebel by holding on to fat. The path for physical self-control is to connect with your needs by being patient with yourself. Use dignity and your 5 senses to be clear about what feels right. 
Using a book or diet method to force yourself into 'healthy' eating misses the point of noticing what your body needs. There is no such thing as 'one size fits all' eating. Everyone's body is unique.
'Self-control' imposed by ideas or rules feels like a threat to your body. That kind of self-control is a myth. Feeling threatened puts your body in the survival mode where there is no self-control.
  • Everyone is physically programmed for survival. That's why your body can force you to eat, breathe or sleep. 
  • Your body is designed hold on to fat any time it decides that being fat is the best way to keep you safe. That's what ultimately decides how much you weigh - not your conscience, a diet program or a book. 
For genuine eating self-control, get to know your body. Tune in with your senses and notice what you notice. You will discover you abuse your body. That is something you can control. Use intuitive eating to enhance your observations. The better you know yourself, the more automatic it becomes to eat in sync with the body you want.
Take a deep breath today and realize that your body is talking to you.
Begin this way:
  • Be picky. Nourish your body every day by only eating what you really want. 
  • Be personal. Listen with your senses to your heart and body. Respond to your needs.
  • Take charge. Visualize and imagine your healthy fit body, exactly the way you want to look and feel before you get out of bed in the morning and before every meal. 
  • Feed that body.
