Why Do We Cheat On Our Diets?Written by Kim Beardsmore
Continued from page 1
The famous “Pavlov’s dogs” were conditioned to eat at sound of a bell, and we human are much same when it comes to habitual cravings. If you wonder why you always feel like a chocolate when you sit down to watch a movie, or you have to have a box of popcorn….think again. You are not necessarily craving these foods because you are hungry, but rather consider force of habit. During time when you have a craving, try to ask yourself whether you are really hungry or not. If you are hungry, reach for a low fat snack rather than a chocolate bar or bag of crisps.
Eating or thinking about food can be a distraction from your troubles and you may therefore be unnecessarily over-eating. Emotions and hormones can trigger certain cravings, for example, if you are feeling low, chocolate and carbohydrates assist production of serotonin in your brain. Serotonin helps you feel happier. This is why we might crave sweet or starchy foods during times of sadness or stress.
If you identify with any of above factors, you could be on your way towards discovering what is triggering you to overeat.

The tough part with exercise is getting out there and doing it. Exercise has to become one of your priorities. You have to make time for it. You have to find a passion. If you don't like what you're doing, you won't do it. Set a goal. Try to improve your times or lift more weight. Put on more muscle through resistance training. The muscle burns more calories around clock. Eventually, workouts that once invigorated you now leave you feeling blah! You have to reinvent yourself and change way you do things. These tips will help you stay motivated. Train for an event, or pretend you are Split your routine up so that you work your upper body and lower body on different days. Hit hills, you'll burn almost 25% more calories. Try a different exercise for every muscle group. Hire a personal trainer. Change number of sets you are doing, every 2 to 4 weeks, increasing weight as you decrease repetitions. Use a heart rate monitor and gauge you progress. Add intervals to your cardio. Alternate 2 minutes of high intensity exercise with 1 minute of lower intensity. Use heavier weights. You need to get to point where you can absolutely not do another repetition. Try a new routine. Have someone help you in gym. Join a team. Count to 10 when you lift weight, and to 5 when you lower it again. It can increase your strength by almost 50%. Try Yoga or Pilates. These disciplines force you to move your body in a different way, which also build stronger abdominals and back muscle. Exercise should be a part of your life, like eating, drinking and breathing. You should aim to make your daily exercise routine a normal daily occurrence. 5 ways to fight plateaus Vary your weights Change order of your exercises Vary angles of your lunges Add cardio to your weight workouts Instead of a circuit, do a series of supersets.
