Default Eat only when feeling hungry to lose 2 stone

Having lost over 2 stone on WW, and put it all back on when I stopped going, I am thinking of using the Paul Mckenna method.

It consists of eating when hungry, not starving hungry I suppose, but waiting till you have hunger pangs.

Then combined with good choices and slow eating, is supposed to retrain our minds (which is where the problem is) to eat what we need, not what we want.

Although WW was good for me, I donīt want to go back again, as I start to obsess when dieting.

I seem to spend all my waking hours thinking about the food and points.

I think this migght be good for me, but would like to know if anyone else is doing this "plan".

Happy new year, and wishing you all sucess in 2014.

Thumbs up

I am to a degree... and I understand the frustration of always thinking about food...However if you start eating meat... for a day or 2 ... the thought of food will leave...and you wont be hungry or craving...and if you continue to eat meat when you are hungry you will lose and it is pleasant...

I am reading Deepak Chopra's book, 'Perfect Weight,' in which he describes mindful eating. It sounds similar to the McKenna diet.

I have been trying to eat only when hungry. I actually ask myself if I am hungry,and even answer. All this while standing in front of the fridge. My answer is usually not hunger, but some other emotional need(bored, procrastination,anger). I drink some water and then have either coffee or tea. This has cut down on my emotional eating as I have become aware that hunger is not behind my desire to eat.
