Millions of people around the world jumping from diet to diet without achieving the main objective, which is to lose weight. Quite the opposite of what is desired, this increases the frustration and lack of commitment to health. Therefore, to escape from the trap of dieting, I propose you to meet the acceptance and commitment therapy to say enough to overweight.
Most people who are overweight or obese have done and have tried most of the fad diets or have consulted a doctor to lose weight. While a percentage of these patients achieved weight loss, many go from diet to diet looking for the long-awaited prize to lose weight, almost without realizing it. This is the trap of dieting.
Initially, diets seem to be the panacea. But after the passage of time, you find yourself with reality promise more than they deliver.
Some Researchers have seen this behavior a reason to investigate. One of the researchers, Dr. Lillis, believes that the best way to lose weight forever and out of the trap of dieting is making an acceptance and commitment therapy. This method allows you to follow a number of strategies to help you get out of the vicious cycle of jumping from diet to diet.
The reality is totally different: instead of putting the focus on weight loss, you must be aimed at changing habits. If you can change your eating habits and incorrect behaviors with more healthy life, weight loss will naturally and have learned to keep all your life.
For the creators of this method to lose weight, you need to teach people how to accept herself and from there find what motivates them to lose weight. The way to do this is through acceptance and change.
What the acceptance and commitment therapy based on?
This therapy is based on teaching strategies that will allow, first, accept yourself, and then commit to changes in lifestyle that guide you in the right way to lose weight.
This type of therapy increases the psychological flexibility; that is, it helps you get in touch with the here and now in a conscious way. Through certain exercises proposed by a psychologist or physical therapist, make contact is achieved healthfully with thoughts, feelings, memories, etc. that help you understand your relationship with food and to commit to change.
This is much more than a way to lose weight: it is a change of lifestyle that manages to understand what food means to you and how it relates to feel some emotions, such as anxiety or sadness.
The treatment would reverse to traditional, as it would from the inside out. Body and mind must unite in order to become aware of who you are, what your positive and negative thoughts that can sabotage your diet and what your wishes are. Once you practice certain exercises and strategies, you get to connect with food from a healthier place. Ie you learn to eat to live and stop living to eat.
Perhaps it is the most difficult and laborious way, but in my opinion is the most recommended, as you will see not only good on the outside, but you will feel good about yourself and your environment.
It’s a different method to analyze and reflect. What do you think?
