Hunger Is A Very Dominant Sensation
Feeling hungry is just human nature. We eat, then later we become hungry again. Hunger is a very dominant sensation, but a necessary one for our survival.
Lots of people centuries ago suffered through famines and droughts, and had very little food. But today, we’re overrun with fast food places and an abundance of available foods, and many of them are fattening.
40 Your Hormones Change
Around 40 is when the hormone changes begin to take place. And along with this can come some veracious appetites and serious hunger. There are two systems within your brain that create the feeling of hunger, and play a part in your losing weight.
Once your level of energy from burning calories drops below a certain amount, then your body will let you know it by the feeling of hunger. This means it’s time to replenish the energy and fuel supply.
Many people experience a feeling of happiness when they eat. This may cause some to overeat, because they like that feeling and want to experience it more. Once you reach the age of 40, your body burns less calories. So at this age you need to just eat enough to feel satisfied, and then stop and not gorge yourself.
Watch What You Eat
Even if it makes you feel happy, you should still watch what you eat. If you eat while you sit around and watch TV, it’s easy to keep on eating even though you’re not really hungry any more. You’re just eating out of impulse. This can really block you from experiencing any permanent weight loss.
Most anyone who has ever tried dieting knows that it’s not that easy. But the thing I want to point out in this article is that with the internet today, you can find plenty of online tools for dieting that can be very effective, and you can learn to lose weight, and also keep that weight off once it’s lost.
Some Of Us Burn Calories Faster Than Others
Everybody has a different metabolism. Some of us burn calories faster than others. So you need to design a diet that suits your specific bodily needs. We all need to reach a point in our diet and exercise where we’re burning more calories than we’re taking in.
And we need to make this diet change, and this exercise regimen, our new lifestyle. Change the old habits, and implement the new. This way when you lose the weight, you will keep it off. But if you revert back to the old ways, the weight will come back as well. It takes a lifestyle change to lose weight and then keep the weight off.
