For Weight Control, Try the Forklifting Diet

July 25th, 2011

If you reduce the number of times you lift your fork to your mouth, you will either lose weight or choke on too big a forkful. Eating with your hands is not allowed on this diet. If you think we are being facetious, we are. But much truth is said in jest and that is no joke.

The comical picture the above implies may help you remember the next time you eat a meal. Eat more slowly; take fewer mouthfuls. Some successful weight losers we know actually count the number of times they lift their forks to their mouths during a meal. Okay, okay, we know what you’re thinking—Get a life!

Anything that we can use, however, to help us be more mindful of what we are putting in our mouths will be a tool for helping us lose weight. Absent-minded eating puts on pounds. For example, eating in front of the refrigerator or while watching T.V. automatically makes some of us eat more. It is far better to sit at a table and concentrate on the meal and enjoy the taste of each morsel. You’ll be satisfied with less.

Studies have shown that the majority of overweight people are faster eaters than their thinner counterparts. Also, it takes 20 minutes for the ‘stomach’ to tell the ‘mind’ that it’s full. The next time you eat a meal, sit at a table (preferably attractively set with nice cutlery,) try forklifting fewer times and more slowly. If you think you want seconds, or heavens forbid, dessert, wait 20 minutes and see if you can outsmart your stomach!

The quantity of individuals who are suffering from weight troubles is growing tremendously and greatly. Limit hunger thank to the natural appetite suppressants that are successfully shown to work and effect.
