SELF-TALK TIP NO. 1. YOU SHOULD EATONLY GOOD FOOD WHEN YOU GET HUNGRY
You probably can see the point of this one right off. Everybody now what is good food is made up of. However an important emphasis must be stress that ‘fiber’ constitutes excellent food. Studies show that most people eat about the same weight of food each day, says Barbara Rolls, PhD, author of The Volumetrics Eating Plan. If you choose high-fiber, water-rich foods — such as broth-based vegetable soups, salads, fruits, and vegetables — instead of foods without fiber and water, you can eat the same weight of food but feel full on fewer calories! Get my drift?
SELF-TALK TIP NO. 2. TAKE COMMAND OF YOURUNDER-EATING/OVEREATING CYCLES
That above tip may be a little flip. You probably wonder what I mean by it. I mean you must just use an uncommon amount of common sense when reading this! Here is some startling expose. Some people are concerned that weight cycling can put more fat around their abdominal (stomach) area. People who tend to carry excess fat in the stomach area (apple-shaped), instead of in the hips, thighs, and buttocks (pear-shaped), are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure.Would it now be easy for you toconnect the dots? A big ‘YES’ if you ask me!

SELF-TALK TIP NO. 4. WORK WITH YOU BODY’S AUTOMATIC MECHANISM
It is beyond a shadow of doubt. Research after research as proven that just as your body temperature is programmed to stay around 98.6 degrees, your body weight is naturally regulated to stay within a range of 10%-20%, says Thomas Wadden, PhD, director of the Center for Weight and Eating Disorders at University of Pennsylvania Medical School. This weight range is known as the “set point.”
A COMPLEX SET OF HORMONES, CHEMICALS, AND HUNGER SIGNALS help your body keep your weight within this range, says dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD. It is not just about your genes. You’re eating and exercise habits can also help to determine your set point. Wouldn’t that be something? It’s all coming up, so keep reading.
