Turbocharger Kito lifestyle results with these following tweaks.
I’m not going to lie to you Switching to a new diet can be very challenging It definitely will take quite a bit of effort It definitely requires a lot of focus and willpower.
And if you want to stick to a diet and keep the pounds off indefinitely you’re going to have to focus on consistency Thankfully there are certain tweaks that would enable you to convert your Kido diet into a Kido lifestyle.
This really is the secret to any kind of weight loss program If you look at diet just as a means for you to lose a few pounds here and there then chances are you’re going to regain those pounds.
It’s only a matter of time On the other hand if you look at your weight loss system as a gateway or a transition point to a different lifestyle then the weight is probably going to stay off That’s how it works.
Keep the following tweaks in mind I don’t expect you to master all of these The first time you try them Usually it takes a while to get used to them but eventually it will become second nature to you as long as you give them enough focus and importance.
Eat only when you’re hungry I can’t even begin to tell you how many people eat out of obligation I know that sounds crazy It definitely sounds ridiculous but it’s true I know it because it happened to me.
This was my standard practice I would look at my watch or my mobile phone and noticed that it’s a certain time That’s when I know it’s time to eat So regardless of whether I’m hungry or regardless of how busy I am I just sit down and enjoy my meal.
That’s a serious problem because if you’re not hungry you don’t have to take in those calories You can just lose yourself in your work or you can just focus on what you’re doing regardless of the time.
It doesn’t matter what your schedule is if you’re not hungry you don’t have to eat This is a hard habit to break A lot of this has to do with our upbringing our parents Bless them would sit us down at certain fixed times in my household.
We were expected to eat from six to seven thirty a.m. and then from eleven to twelve thirty pm our final meal together would be from 6 to 8 p.m. depending on people’s schedules But those are the time ranges.
When you’ve been doing that for many years it’s hard to break free It’s hard to try something new It’s as if your body clock has essentially evolved around those schedules but there’s really no rule written on granite stone that dictates that you should eat out of obligation because of time.
If you want to convert your Kido diet into a lifestyle that you can stick to for life Eat only when you’re hungry This is the most empowering thing you can do You’re eating to live you’re not living to eat.
I know that sounds like a cliche and it is but it’s also true You’re not eating out of obligation you’re not eating out of custom or tradition You’re not eating because that’s just what I do No you’re eating because you want to and you should only want to eat because you’re feeling hungry.
Drink first when you get hunger pangs It’s very easy to just go to a drive thru or to the nearest restaurant or even a corner grocery store and buy some ready meal when you feel hunger pangs After all you are hungry you’re doing something to take care of the hunger as soon as possible.
I get that That’s what most people do The problem is the hunger that you’re feeling may not linger for long Those hunger pangs may be temporary This is why I suggest that you drink first when you get hunger pangs.
You’d be surprised as how quickly your hunger dissipates The secret here is to drink first Now don’t go crazy There’s no need to go overboard You don’t have to whip out a liter of water or a gallon jug and start pounding away No.
Just a small cup would do See if it does the trick And then I have another glass Another trick that I use is to first drink warm water If you can get it drink a little bit of hot water you’d be surprised as to how much of your hunger pangs is actually just your body looking to rehydrate itself.
Stick to this plan Drink first when your hunger pangs drink warm water first then drink more cold water If that doesn’t do the trick then decide to eat eat slowly Once you have decided to eat don’t rush through the process I know this is easier said than done.
If you’re like most Americans you feel that you really don’t have much time In fact if you’re like most people you think that time is a luxury Believe me I understand where you’re coming from and I totally get you But here’s the thing.
If you just blow through your meal your mind is not going to register say shitty fully it will still be partly hungry What do you think happens next That’s right You eat even more calories until you’re fully sated Usually in that context your body only feels full when your stomach has expanded enough as you can well imagine.
This is not a recipe for weight loss You end up eating too much This is why it’s a good idea to eat slowly your eating your Kido meals That’s awesome But he’d slowly This means that you get to enjoy your food more.
It also gives your brain time to synchronize and line up with your body because when you eat you’re actually releasing chemical compounds through your body It’s sending all sorts of signals There’s this interplay between your brain and the rest of your body particularly your digestive tract.
If you rush through your meals this delicate balance of signals cascading into each other and reacting to each other doesn’t play out fully So you end up overloading your system with calories Eat slowly There’s no rush.
Enjoy each mouthful celebrate your food again eat to live Don’t live to eat Look at each of your meals as some sort of event When you have chosen to eat slowly your mind has opened itself to the possibility of looking at food as some sort of celebration.
It is not just empty generic fuel that you just load up on so you can do more important things throughout the day Unfortunately this is how most people view food Food is an end in and of itself It is something to be celebrated.
It is part of what makes life special You need to slow down and eat more deliberately for you to really savor your food Once you’ve started to do that then eventually you’ll be able to look at your meals as some sort of event It’s something to look forward to.
It’s kind of like your feast for the day Eat more mindfully Not only should you eat slowly but you should also be as conscious of the eating process as possible Savor each mouthful Be aware of the flavors going through your mouth.
Understand yourself more fully by experiencing your food preferences in a more direct way Different people have different tastes different people have different preferences when you eat mor mindfully the meals say something about you they say something about your preference they say something about the textures that you like they are part of an event you’re connected to the whole eating process when you eat choose to eat.
In other words focus your attention on what you’re doing it is no surprise that a lot of people who are multitasking while they’re eating tend to eat too much They also tend to eat more frequently How come you’re not there.
Their attention is somewhere else Maybe it’s in the email that they’re monitoring or maybe it’s in the social media updates that are obsessed about.
Or maybe it’s work.
Maybe they’re talking to other people Whatever the case may be they are not letting the eating process unwind itself You have to understand that just like sleep eating is a big part of you All people have to eat.
It doesn’t matter what corner of the globe you come from It doesn’t matter what your specific background is You have to eat If you are a member of the human species it really is a tragedy that you go through your meals like it’s an afterthought.
You have to pack as much meaning into it as you would with sleep One third of your life is spent sleeping well a significant portion is also spent eating Wouldn’t it be great if you’re more aware and appreciative of that percentage of your precious time you spend eating.
The good news is that this will pay off handsomely when it comes to weight loss.
You’ll be able to keep the weight off because you don’t have to eat as much and also when you’re eating Kido foods you enjoy them better and they make you feel fuller for a longer period of time.
