Feeling of hunger


Below is a "Health and Weight" Program.

It is believed that overweight is the result of overeating. More precisely, the fact that an overweight person consumes less energy than consumes food. With age, the former diet leads to weight gain. Want to lose weight - you need to eat less, or more to move.

People overweight are not very pleased to hear, because we believe that the body regulates itself when we eat, and if not. To refuse overeating, "snacks" and late dinner is difficult. But I assure you that this is a mistake. Tell me, how often do you think about food between a healthy lunch and a quick dinner? But the stomach after an hour and a half after eating is already empty.

The manifestations of hunger are clear to us. The body demonstrates its readiness to eat. It is then that you need saliva in your mouth and gastric juice in the stomach, the stomach actively leads ("sucks under the spoon"), bile is produced (it starts to rumble in the stomach) and all thoughts are directed towards food.

Hunger, that is, - the reaction necessary for the organism to succeed in digestion. It is senseless and harmful if you eat "not to take". In other words, the feeling of hunger is false expectations.

Ivan Petrovich Pavlov convincingly showed how eating behavior (readiness to take food on the signal) can be formed in dogs. Food, a signal. So several times. Now only the signal. Done!

Regularly from birth, eating "in hours" creates a stable reflex at our time of eating. This reflex led to the general conviction that it was dangerous to miss lunch, and to starve. Dog logic Unlike animals, a person is able to control conditioned reflexes. This is to be learned, and that's why.

A great desire for food leads to the appearance of acid in the empty stomach. It very often promotes the colonization of its bacteria Helicobacter pylori, leads to gastritis, and even ulcers. If the gallbladder is not released, it causes nausea and weakness, stones are formed in the stagnant bile, an infection is easily clogged to it. Fooled in their expectations, the intestine is prone to constipation. Thrown out of time insulin can cause a state of half-consciousness - hypoglycemia.

If timely (reflex) do not eat, gastric juice will erode the stomach. As a result, an unhealthy face color, an unpleasant smell from the mouth, constant tongue plaque and caries damaged teeth.

If you always eat when you want (by reflex), you will inevitably grow thin.

In the reasoning that eating should be strictly on the clock, there is no logic, because in the course of evolution, there was no three meals a day. Our body is adapted for a long time to do without food, and when it is in excess - to accumulate energy in the form of fat to "eat" it later.

Conclusion. A feeling of hunger - a normal state, but only useful before a meal and harmful if it is not. To tolerate it or learn how to manage it?

Practice. If you feel hunger, and do not intend to eat, follow the next exercise. Stand straight, spread your shoulders. Put your palms on the stomach, one on the other and exhale. At the inhale, as much as possible, pull the stomach, with some help with your hands, and hold your breath for 3-4 seconds. Extend and relax. Repeat the exercise 10 times. After 1-2 minutes, a hunger will go through.

This exercise works always if the stomach is empty. It is effectively in positions standing, sitting, and even walking.

What does it give? You can safely skip meals and not damage your stomach. And when fasting? You are free from the feeling of hunger from the first minute, you will have a clean, plain tongue, there will be no smell from your mouth, the most important thing is that there will be no stomach patient after a hunger strike, you will not need a "restorative diet"

If you have stomach ulcer or gastritis, this exercise will help you get rid of them.

How does it work? During the breath, the diaphragm shifts the stomach down. At the same time, the stretched belly holds him back. The acid contents of the stomach is transferred to the intestine and neutralized.

Appetite. The sense of satiety, as is commonly believed, comes from stretching the walls of the stomach, filled with food, - and a large stomach, accordingly, requires more food. It does not. Our experience suggests that sentiment occurs when all gastric juice is eaten. If it's not enough, the strain comes quickly, and if a lot, then the other way around. To get rid of the habit of overeating at the table, perform several times the breathing exercise before eating. You will see that the strength will come before and the state of food comfort will last longer.

Since the basis of "bad habits" of food is a stereotype, produced over the years, it's easiest to change it after a food pause. During the first few days after starvation, the diet (the amount of meals per day), the composition of food (vegetable or animal, sweet or salty, acute or fresh), as well as the amount of it can usually be changed, based on a new, more adequate lifestyle stereotype food.
