For Savvy Weight Loss: Know Thyself
What kind of dieter are you? Knowing your diet personality can help you lose weight.
Weight loss type 5: The distracted diner continued...
As for fast food, if you're always on the road, make yourself a deal. Tell
yourself there's a cost involved, says Wansink, and you can eat fast food, but
not while you drive. Instead, pull over and eat it in a parking lot. A
distracted diner, usually too distracted while eating to notice, may never
realize how much she actually dislikes the taste of fast food until she adds
this trick to her weight loss plan.
If you want to transition from harried dining and tend to eat alone, try
replacing mealtime distractions such as work, television or household chores
with a light book or magazine. You may find you eat more slowly when your mind
is focused on less anxious, time-pressured tasks.
Your personality, your diet plan
The real goal isn't to find a diet that works for you, Sanders tells
WebMD. It's to find a way of eating that you enjoy, and which allows you to
lose excess weight and keep it off. You may need to reassess your diet plan
over time as your age and lifestyle change. But the only way to get that
perfect fit is to find the diet plan that works with you and your personality
right now. Bon appetit!
