Repetition is mother of all learning (OK, not exactly like that, but now I cannot un-say it). So, let's repeat what are the things that will ensure your weight loss and maintenance: - take on only on changes that you keep maintain for a long time (not for 7 days) - drink more water - think of your eating times and portions (more precisely think of intermittent eating and smaller portions) - work on your attitude towards food (treat yourself with healthy food, not junk, limit and force yourself when eating fast food, not when eating highly nutritious foods) - choose healthy fats (avocadoes, fat fish, nuts) - eat more fiber (full grain products) - eat more protein - eat fruits and vegetables - choose coffee or green tea - start exercising if you don't already - sleep well - be gentle on yourself (meaning don't force yourself and do not be mean to yourself) - take care of your gut and its bacteria Article: https://www.farrinstitute.org/best-weight-loss-tips/ Photo: stux from Pixabay My name is Monika, I am psychologist.

Another book that I would like to recommend. Not the only one of this kind, I will come back to this later as well. Even though it is not psychology, but this knowledge is still very important. One of the obstacles that does not allow to achieve the desired result is lack of knowledge about how things work. If you stand in front of the door with the key in your hand, but have no clue how to use it - you can spend loads of time just standing there, experiencing despair, anger, blaming the door, the key, yourself or the others. But the door will not open because of this. Accepting this fact, also that knowledge needs to be verified, collected, updated - is the field of psychology. This specific knowledge - on food and eating - currently is developing very rapidly. There are still things that are valid, but a lot of other things that are new, and even contradict the previous "truths" - to avoid fats, to snack, to eat until full and not get hungry by any means, to eat sugars or food in general in order to have energy (whatever that is), to be able to compensate by exercising if you ate more the day before, to be able to "burn" excess food, etc. Now we know more, so we can treat our bodies a lot better and achieve results a lot faster. Bon read. #spoonfulofreading #books #psychology #nutrition

Several things you should know about the Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, ARFID. It is not "just" a picky eating. This eating disorder causes great psychological and physical stress, people may gag or choke if trying to swallow something that causes them anxiety - foods of specific texture, smell, appearance, or something they choked on before. Because of this people may avoid eating situations all together, like cafeterias or parties. This disorder may be the cause of serious weight loss of failure to grow. People with this disorder are not concerned with their weight or body image as often is the case with other eating disorders. It may occur in people of all ages and genders. Along with this disorder, people may experience anxiety, mood disorders, symptoms from autism spectrum. Cognitive behavioral therapy is effective method of help - it focuses on exposure and response prevention.

Research. Eating healthy? Great. Because of that allow yourself "to let go" and eat something not so healthy on the side? Then not so great. Researchers have found that a very positive impact of Mediterranean diet (fish, olive oil, vegetables, legumes, full grain products, a bit of red wine) on the cognitive functions, memory and perception are significantly diminished by adding product typical to Western diet (fried meals, refined grains, processed meat, full fat dairy products, pizza, etc.). Cognitive age is increased by appr. 6 years. Just the facts. For slow consideration. Research: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2021/01/210109152410.htm Photo: S. Hermann & F.
