Now as most of you know,as a Weight Loss Hypnotherapist and Coach I do not believe in deprivation or “banning” certain foods. So by all means have a little of what you fancy:that is normal and absolutely fine. Indeed,even mentally knowing that you have your own permission to have chocolate,or Easter cake or whatever it is for you,psychologically can sometimes just make it easier to have a little and not have to overindulge! However, what if the temptation of Easter may just become a little too much for you? Are you someone who when faced with copious amounts of chocolate finds that their resolve “to be good” goes out of the window? If this is you,then these “Easter Bunny “ tips may just be what you need this Easter!
My Easter Bunny Chocolate Weight Loss Tips:
1) If you know that being bought lots of chocolate at Easter will result in you eating it all yourself and you feel that you won’t be able to control your chocolate intake,then how about asking for alternative Easter presents rather than chocolate eggs? How about some pretty flowers,or plants for the garden? What about a pedicure or manicure voucher,to get your hands and feet looking gorgeous as we are about to start showing them off more when the warmer weather comes!
2) If your family insist on buying you chocolate then share,share,share! Open that big yummy box and take a few that you wish to eat and then keep passing the box around until they are gone!
3) If you are worried about children’s chocolate hanging about well after Easter,set up a children’s chocolate tin,put all the remaining choccie in there and hide it well away from you. Would you really steal chocolate from your kids?
4) Remember that being overweight and having cravings is actually more about what is going on in your head rather than the food itself. So if you find yourself having a mental argument about eating Easter chocolate,have a little bit and see if you feel satisfied. If the answer is no and you are still dying for more (and you are not really hungry) then ask yourself what is this really about? What are you hoping that eating the chocolate will make you feel? What need do you think it will satisfy? Whatever comes up deal with it, in the best way you can,without eating more chocolate!
Now on this note, if you are stuck with your weight loss; you feel that your cravings for certain foods are causing the problem; you have forgotten what it is like to eat normally and not mentally beat yourself up for the food that you are eating, you are constantly telling yourself that “the diet starts tomorrow” and yet you never manage to stick to it or lose the weight, and you would like to find the affordable solution to your weight loss, then read more
