Appetite Control: When There Is A Will, There Is A Way

Introduction And Background
When we talk about appetite, we usually talk about large appetites and how difficult they are to control. And having large appetites generally mean that obesity has either been reached or is not a very faraway destination. This article will aim to explain appetite and the control you can have over it if you really want to. If you have enough will to control your appetite, there is certainly a way you can achieve it. Remember, once the human mind puts their mind to something, it is either circumstance or luck that fails them. Otherwise, that thing is almost bound to happen. These words, in different words, have been said by many famous people!

Your Mind Over Matter
Ever watched an episode of the famous Tv show Grey’s Anatomy? It is a show about doctors and their lives. In one of the episodes, the main character of the show is feeling really nauseous and has some sort of viral bug and she has to give her board exams. Her friend tells her to use her brain and control her nausea and give the exam. She tells her to exhibit a show of “mind over matter” and to control what she is feeling. If one can control nausea, can’t one control their appetite and hunger pangs? This is where the line is used, where there is a will, there is a way. If you want to do something, you will end up doing it. If you truly want to lose weight, you can control your appetite and achieve what you set out for.

A Thing Psychiatrists Say…
A friend wanted to lose weight really badly before her wedding and although she was doing good most of the days, she found it excessively hard to stay away from any sweet things lying around the house or any desserts. She consulted a psychiatrist just like that who told her a trick that changed her life. He told her to look at the sweet item for a full ten seconds and shake her head from left to right, either saying “no” out loud or whispering in her head. After the ten seconds, she wouldn’t want to eat the sweet item and can walk away from it easily instead of devouring it. He said those ten seconds make her see sense and her ultimate goal and she can weigh in the consequences of what eating those extra calories would bring. It really helps and just using your head can bring about appetite control, imagine that!

Use Your Will Power…
Because it is the strongest thing you have. If you do not have enough will power to lose weight, you will never lose weight. Know why? It will be because you will not follow your diet, will probably cheat on your diet even if you try to follow it and in the end might even leave it because it isn’t doing you much good. Thus it is important to use you will power to control the appetite.

What Will Happen If You Do?
If you use your will power to control your appetite the first two or three days, gradually your appetite will have lessened itself and before you know it, you are effortlessly eating less than you did before. Isn’t that what everyone wants in the end? Appetite control in the most natural manner, by actually using your brain and control, you will be happier with the weight loss and it will be more permanent than any other way. If you decide to use drugs, you might become dependent on them and if you decide to use machines for appetite control, they have major consequences as well. Once a woman used a belt around her stomach for weight loss and since it gave away heat, her skin was burnt. Isn’t it better to use brain rather than such devices?

Appetite Control Means Weight Lost
If you have learned to control your appetite, consider it done that your weight will be lost. You don’t have to worry about it then because once you have got your eating habits under control, you will begin to shed pounds when the your calorie intake will be less than the number of calories you are burning in a day!

The conclusion that you can draw from this article is to believe in yourself. If you believe that you can control your appetite and will be able to achieve your goal, you can do it. If you already think in the beginning that it is hard and your will power isn’t into it much, the probability is high that you will fail at your diet. But trust yourself and apply the control you have and you will see results!
