The Psychology of Diet Preparation

By Lisa Beverley Subscribe to RSS | November 26th 2011 | Views:

We decided to lose weight due to a number of reasons: we do not like the way we look, the clothes do not fit, our health is in danger, our partner is wandering, our job is at risk, or our children are embarrassed . We tend to think of weight loss as something that involves only the body, surely no one decided to lose weight because the fat of a swollen brain or mind.

However, "decided" is a mental function. When and why that decision depends on our mind, our body does not. We can choose when we are five kilos more than they wanted, or after passing the mark of 200 pounds and entering true medical obesity. The actual size of the body leads to the decision to lose weight, as an option in the current in the brain.

From the beginning (and continuation) of a diet program is a mental process, it seems worth exploring the factors that could lead to such a decision.

1. Self-image.

Each of us has a double image: the face down into the world and our inner idea of how they appear. Although we got dressed and prepared, in an effort to be considered attractive by others, which are much less influenced by others than by our satisfaction or dissatisfaction with ourselves.

Explore this concept by observing yourself and others in the course of next week. You will notice that often receive compliments on the clothes you wear that to you, do not feel "very well". Use a favorite team that fits perfectly, that you think is outstanding and makes you feel especially running - and no one notices! The same phenomenon occurs with a haircut. One morning, he ran on time, you can not get your hair to do anything so she angrily pulled the clips and hope that it is important to look so horrible. Voila! Three people commented that they like what they've done with your hair.

Not the same disconnect when it comes to our weight. If we look closely at the eye of our mind, do not feel fat, although friends and coworkers are whispering about our steady weight gain. However, if we as overweight, no amount of confidence in those around us will make us feel less fat. Taken to the extreme, this mental image of our body size can lead to anorexia nervosa eating disorder in which people are painfully thin dangerously restricting your calorie intake, as we constantly see themselves as too heavy.

We decided to go on a diet, therefore, in response to our internal self-image. Some of the benefits we anticipate that go along with being thin and fit take into account the other, that will be more attractive to the opposite sex, I will be seen at work when it's time for a promotion, my family and friends jealousy and will have to re-evaluate myself as a stronger person than I had thought. But the real reward for getting fit is what it does for us personally. It is the desire to feel good about ourselves that leads us through the pain and monotony of the diet and exercise. It is the vision of the future of ourselves in our mind that drives us towards our goal. The loss of vision, or the conclusion that we will not feel much better about ourselves, are the reasons that we give up and fall back into the relative comfort of settling for just "good."

2. Body from mind dominance.

All fight a lifelong battle between our inner body and mind. Each one is dominant at different stages of development. Like children, they are little more than a collection of sensations. Explore new and exciting world around us through touching everything within reach, all we can taste in our mouth, watching the movements of everything around us, and hear all the sounds you hear until you finally learn to imitate.

As we progress in our first years of school, we began to focus on our minds. We greedily devour vast amounts of information. We must learn to read and our world expands its boundaries by a thousand percent. Learn to use the Internet and an unlimited universe is in our hands.
