Social influence and eating for the wrong reasons

Many people who are obese or overweight are like that because they don’t have the right relationship with food. They may use food as a way to comfort themselves when they’re sad, or to keep themselves occupied when they’re not busy. Still others eat for the enjoyment of it. Just look at the way we entertain our friends. Everything revolves around food. We usually meet our friends for dinner at a restaurant or we invite them for a feast at home. Everything is about food and lots of it. This is a problem because when you think of food in this way, it’s hard to change what you’re eating.

Si vous ne mangez pas pour fournir le bon type de nourriture à votre corps, vous serez piégé par cette embuche. La nourriture est censée être principalement du carburant pour que votre corps fonctionne. Mais si la nourriture devient votre principale source de divertissement et de plaisir, les choses peuvent dérailler. Cela prend du temps, du travail et parfois l’aide d’un psychologue professionnel, mais vous devez vous assurer que vous mangez pour les bonnes raisons. La nourriture devrait être considérée comme un outil que vous utilisez pour perdre du poids, et non comme un divertissement social ou une aide émotionnelle.

Se laisser influencer par les autres :

If you’re not eating as a way to provide the right type of nourishment to your body, you will get trapped by this roadblock. Food is supposed to be primarily fuel for your body to function. But if food becomes your principal source of entertainment and pleasure, things can derail. It takes some time, work, and sometimes the help of a professional psychologist, but you need to make sure you’re eating for the right reasons. Food should be considered a tool that you use to lose weight, not something you turn to for social entertainment or emotional help.

Letting Others Influence You:

Think about the people you spend the most time with, and it’s likely that some of them weigh about the same as you do if not more. When everyone around you is going out to eat unhealthy food and encouraging you to forget your diet just for the night, it’s easy to give in and keep giving in until you’ve completely fallen off track of your diet.

Sometimes, you may need to cut people out of your life or at least spend less time with them so that you can focus on what you need to do and not let their negative influences affect you. You can also try taking the lead when it comes to planning activities and suggest your get-togethers involve more physical activities or healthy restaurants. Next time you’re planning to get together with some friends, try to meet them for a nice walk in the park or a bike ride on the bike path. Chances are that you would have more fun than just sitting around a table indulging one plate of food after another.

If you want to lose weight, you are going to have to make some choices and some lifestyle changes. You may actually influence your friends for the better.
