Top Secrets to Eating in Moderation


How can you eat in moderation while you're surrounded by temptations such as candy, potato chips, and pastries?

Fortunately, it's possible to lessen the temptation and find a way to eat moderately!

These tips will help you stay healthy and on track with your diet by learning to eat in moderation:

1. Understand the meaning of moderation.

What does moderation mean for your body and diet?

* Although moderation can vary from person to person, experts agree that it generally involves limiting unhealthy foods to small amounts and rare occasions.

This means that you eat cookies or doughnuts in small pieces and not every day.

* It's important to figure out your own level of comfort with moderation.

Are you able to avoid eating chips during the weekdays but find it hard to eliminate them on the weekends?

You have to create your own set of rules to make moderation work for you.

2. Keep a journal.

It's hard to remember everything you've consumed during the week.

You can easily forget that you ate half a candy bar at your desk or finished a small bag of pretzels while watching television.

* A journal for your food intake can help you keep track of everything you eat.

* The journal can help you figure out when and how to cut out unhealthy food.

* It also helps you notice patterns, so your goal to eat in moderation is easier to reach.

For example, if you discover that you always reach for unhealthy snacks after work, then you can create a new after-work habit that supports your goal.

3. Control your triggers.

Do you reach for the doughnuts because you're stressed or worried?

* The most common triggers for overeating are stress and anxiety. However, fatigue and boredom are also triggers that can encourage you to eat pizza instead of a healthy green salad.

* Discover how to control these triggers: First, identify your triggers and pay attention to the events that cause them. For example, does talking to your mother-in-law make you feel anxious and cause you to eat a bagel? Once you've identified the triggers, you can work on coping strategies to get rid of them.

* By trial and error, you can find various techniques that help you handle the stress and anxiety, so you're not reaching for junk food to make up for the emotions. For example, breathing, meditation, and relaxation techniques are all effective methods.

4. Hide or get rid of the temptations.

If you don't keep pastries in the house, you won't reach for them out of boredom during a TV show.

* Temptations vary from person to person, but the most common items are sugary and salty snacks. This includes cake, cookies, chips, pretzels, and other common food products.

* If you can't throw away all of the junk food, the next best step is to put it in a place that is hard to reach.

For example, you can store the food on a top shelf that requires you to get a chair or stool to reach. Another option is put it in a storage area that isn't used often.

Moderation is the key to eating healthy without feeling deprived and hungry all the time.

Use these tips to maintain your diet and avoid gaining weight or hurting your health.

Learn More About The Sirtfood Diet
by: Warren

There are hundreds of diets that you can try. However, most of them will tell you to avoid the stuff you enjoy - like red wine and chocolate. Not the Sirtfood diet. This one allows you to have those favorites and yet, you’ll still lose weight.

The Sirtfood Diet is based on eating foods that are known to contain sirtuins. These proteins are used to not only promote cellular health, but to also boost your metabolism and help your body burn fat.

The diet works by using the sirtuins to activate the skinny gene within your body. You will use the diet to lower the number of calories that you consume, but the foods that you eat on the diet, called sirtfoods, are what make energy for you.

And this is what makes losing the weight easier. The main point of the diet is to eat less and concentrate the foods you consume on a list of sirtfoods.

When your meals are built using sirtfoods, it makes your body boost the production of sirtuins.

In addition to losing weight on the diet, you’ll also lower your risk of developing certain diseases. The diet does include a type of green juice that you’ll make using a recipe.

It’s a strategy built using two phases, lasting for a total of three weeks, that you’ll need to follow.

The first one is a week long. During this time, you’ll lower the number of calories that you consume. In place of those calories, you’ll be drinking the green juice that you make.

The purpose of this phase is to kickstart your body so that it goes into a weight loss mode. At this time, you’ll lose weight rapidly because of the dietary changes you’ll make.

The caloric intake is limited to around 1,000 calories at the start but this does increase toward the end of phase one. Phase two lasts for fourteen days.

The focus during this phase is not on a heavy calorie restriction, but rather on the sirtfoods that you’ll be eating based on the recipes you’ll be taught.

If, at the end of phase two, you decide that you want to lose more weight, you just begin again with the first phase. The recipes that you’ll need to know for the phases are from the Sirtfood Diet book.

The diet is good for anyone who wants to lose weight fast and then plans to maintain that loss. You’ll need to learn the sirtfoods, but that’s given in the diet book you’ll need to buy.

A mistake that you’ll want to watch out for is trying to substitute some of the ingredients in the recipes or the green juice. These foods are listed because they work to cause weight loss.

You also don’t want to make the mistake of skipping the green juice to just eat the sirtfood meals.
