Two Quick Weightloss Ideas To Kill Your Bad Habits

Oct 12, 2007
A long time ago I learned a couple of weightloss ideas to help you kill a bad habit. It works to eliminate your attachment to something, as you'll see below.

Some quick background. I grew up dieting. When I was about 10, I started putting on weight, and my mom started putting me on diets. Awful right? At least she went on them, too.

So I have spent many years with this ingrained idea that food is fun, and no food is no fun. One of the weightloss ideas I learned as a teenager came back to me recently, about this habit of eating for fun.

Go buy your favorite food or snack, whether you eat it now or not. Get a cookie, a big muffin, a double sugar latte, or some Ben and Jerry's. Once you have it, you can either take a bite, or not, and skip ahead.

When I say take a bite, I mean it. If you eat any, eat only a small amount. Next, toss it out. Yes, throw it away, whether you ate any or not. You want to change the idea in you that you have to finish that item or save it. You can get more.

Some more weightloss ideas to help you with this: Picture all the food you will ever and have ever eaten all in one place. Not easy, right? It would be a mountain of food. Just the turkey will make a huge pile for me. With all that food, you can spare a few cookies or a muffin. Toss it out.

And don't buy another one to take its place right now. I know all about forbidden foods. I was on Sugar Busters for two years, and the second half of that included a lot of cheating. By the way, in Sugar Busters, you quit eating white sugar and white flour. Its a lot like South Beach.

This method of giving up ingredients creates a ton of forbidden foods. I decided, after quitting in frustration and gaining the weight back, all 35 pounds, that forbidden foods wouldn't work for me. If it does for you, congratulations, and stay with it.

I decided my weight loss would have to come by prudently eating all kinds of foods in the right quantities. And so, throwing out some of it helps to keep me focused. If I want more, I can have it tomorrow or the next day.

Give these weightloss ideas a try. Go get that double scoop of rocky road and mint chocolate chip ice cream on a sugar cone. Take a bite of each, and chuck it. You can handle it. And always know you can get another one tomorrow, and eat or throw it away.

You are in control.
