Diets and Daydreaming Therapy

Are you sitting at your computer trying to ignore the nagging feeling that you’re missing something (like a cookie)? It's perfectly okay to admit that you daydream about not following your diet. Just do not let your daydreaming turn into a reality.

 
PRLog - Aug. 29, 2011 - Are you sitting at your computer trying to ignore the nagging feeling that you’re missing something (like a chocolate chip cookie)?  It is perfectly okay to admit that you daydream about not following your diet. Just do not let your daydreaming turn into a reality.

It is completely normal and you should not feel guilty that you are still longing for those “off limit” foods.  Do not believe the hype when diet manufacturers say their plan (or food) is so good that you will never even consider going back to the fattening foods you consumed before. You probably will, and that is completely okay.

Some manufacturers say that when you finally rid your system of sugar, you will not crave it anymore.  But dieting pitfalls often occur because of habits we have formed around certain foods, not necessarily because we are encountering a biological phenomenon. For example, maybe you always have pizza Friday nights. Or maybe you are used to starting your day with a coffee drink that is full of fat, sugar, and… of course… a few hundred calories.

While it may be great to know you are normal, what can you do about it?  Sometimes it feels as if these daydreams will eventually lead to complete diet failure.  But these daydreams, or cravings, do not have to lead to the end of your diet.  

Facing your food issues is a good way to put them behind you. If you ignore the feelings, and suppress them long enough, you may binge one day when you are not feeling particularly strong. Some of us are emotional eaters or stress eaters. This could trigger an eating binge or diet failure when you are just simply having an overly emotional or overly stressful day.

So what is the first step? Stop thinking of yourself as a dieter – someone who has to abandon a certain food for the rest of his or her life.  You may have eliminated the food while you became healthier and fit, but it does not mean it has to be gone forever – only until you have your food fears under control.

Over time, as you begin to accept the fact that your favorites dishes are not necessarily gone for good, you will daydream about them less often and then you will be able to go about your day without food clouding your thoughts at all.

Daydreaming comes into play as therapy.  Your mind misses something, so it is trying to relive it again for you.  It is just a phase of growth for your diet plan and you will feel a great sense of accomplishment when you realize one day – at the end of a day – that food did not cross your mind even once.

Becoming healthy is a long journey. You do not just give up poor eating habits one day and wake up thin the next. It takes mental and physical preparation to get you to a place where your body is fit and your mind is functioning without fail to help you make the right choices.
