Sometimes, it could be a struggle to eat food that makes us feel happy inside. While those amazing pub meals feel like heaven when you’re chowing down on them, that type of lifestyle can make us feel miserable from time to time. Not to mention, it’s incredibly draining on the old finances! When we embark on that horrible practice, diet, we can deprive ourselves of the good stuff in life. And this isn’t fair, and because we think that we need to cut calories in order to lose weight, going without leaves us feeling miserable and falling off the wagon. So, are there any options for us to enjoy our food, but still feel healthy and happy?

Portion Control

Now, don’t panic, because it’s not like you would be staring at one single leaf! But the idea of portion control is something that takes a while to get round to. The best way to implement some food portion control is to just have a smaller plate. Now, this is more of a psychological trick than anything else, so don’t go from a big dinner plate to a small dessert place overnight. But do it gradually.

Fill Up On Fat

This sounds like insanity, but you might have heard about people going on a ketogenic diet, or high fat low-carb diets, and it has been shown to have a positive impact, not just on weight, but on overall mood. Because when we go on a diet we deprive ourselves of everything we like, we don’t feel full. The idea behind filling up on fat, having low carbs, and moderate protein is that you feel satisfied, and therefore don’t feel tempted to fill up on crap. One of the best ways to do this is to have a butter coffee, but it’s always best to get some of the best fresh coffee beans at your disposal, because it tastes a little bit nicer, and blend it with coffee and a little bit of coconut oil or MCT oil. It may take a while to get used to, but by having this for breakfast, you feel full enough that you don’t want to snack on anything else, but you’re giving your body what it needs, and people are losing weight as a result of this.

Eat Until You’re 80% Full

This is an approach adopted in countries like Japan, where you don’t stuff your face until you can’t move. Eating until you are 80% full can take some time to get used to contact, the idea is for your body to have the time necessary to replenish itself. Eating until you’re 80% full means you still have some energy which to move around, but you aren’t overdoing it.

These three approaches can take some getting used to if you are looking for ways to feel happier with yourself but still enjoy food, these approaches may be the key to unlocking your relationship with food, and making you feel more content within yourself.
