San Jose Diet Clinic Discusses New Year’s Resolutions For Weight Loss

It’s the time of year when most of us in San Jose make New Year’s resolutions, promising ourselves to lose weight.  Our intentions are good but studies show we are not very successful in shedding our pounds.  At our San Jose diet clinic, we help individuals keep their new years resolutions by successfully helping them lose weight and break the habit of destructive eating.

Many of times when individuals try to lose weight, they go about it incorrectly.  Using huge amounts of will power, many San Jose residents restrict their intake, instead of looking at the causes for being heavy. Their will power, which is in abundance on January 1, starts to fade quickly and they quickly revert to our old patterns until the next New Year.

Causes Of Being Overweight

Why are we overweight? Most people, approximately 75% of us who are heavy, are eating for reasons other than hunger, typically for emotional reasons

Emotional eaters consume large quantities of food, often “comfort” or junk foods, in response to thoughts and feelings instead of hunger. Throughout our lives, many of us learn that food can bring us comfort and we then turn to food to soothe ourselves when we are upset.

Emotions such as anxiety, depression, loneliness, anger, boredom, stress, frustration, guilt, shame and jealously commonly lead to eating for the wrong reasons. Only by identifying these triggers to eating can we successfully break the destructive habit of eating when we are not hungry. Our San Jose diet clinic will not only help you identify the triggers that are causing you to eat excessively but also help you break the habit and lose weight fast and successfully.

Tips On How To Lose Weight

Keeping a journal and recording why and what you eat will help identify the triggers that lead to excessive eating. A food diary that records thoughts and feelings when eating will help you identify the triggers that lead to the destructive behavior of overeating. (more…)
