”A diet is the penalty we pay for exceeding the feed limit”~Author Unknown
I love this weight loss quote because it is so true. If I hadn’t eaten all the food in sight I would have never had to diet. It states the fundamental law of action and reaction.
That is why having healthy eating habits is so important. You can’t expect to avoid getting fat if you keep eating lots of food. Learning when to stop from eating can be quite hard, especially if you are confronted with your favorite food. Over indulging is a sin, we all know it, but it is a sin we all love.
I can still remember the time when I didn’t had any control over my eating habits. If any food was placed in front of me I just had to eat it. It was an unconscious drive that kept me chomping at the food until it was done. My body had enough food a long time ago but I wanted more.
You would be amazed how little food you need to survive. Your body doesn’t need that much food to function properly. In fact too much food will harm your body. Ideally you should eat only enough food to make the hunger go away without feeling stuffed.
After a meal if you feel full and require a small siesta to let the food settle, you should know you have eaten too much food. All that extra food will make it so that, in not time you will gain a lot of weight. Maybe at first you won’t get alarmed by the few extra pounds.
As time passes the pounds will pile up and eventually you will have to lose weight. Maybe you won’t stand your imagine anymore, or maybe your health will deteriorate so much that your only chance of living more is losing weight. Regardless the motive, you will have to diet to lose weight. Wouldn’t it be a lot better to avoid the penalty, the diet, by acquiring healthy eating habits that keep you slender and in peak shape.
