Before you eat the second plate, say 'stop' to yourself and wait for the 20 minutes to be up. Let the brain send the signal of satiety. If you are still hungry after 20 minutes, make sure to drink water first and change the environment you are in, even for 5-10 minutes.

One of the main reasons for me to study psychology as a minor is to be able to guide my clients well in this process. Because the weight loss process is successful not only with a healthy diet, but also when we can manage the psychological processes of the clients well. One of the steps to make the diet sustainable is to accept that your program is not a diet, but a healthy diet. Therefore, ask your dietitian to arrange lists that can be adapted to daily life. Because as long as you accept the new nutritional model you will adopt and adapt it to your life, you will be successful.
