Ideas from books, articles & podcasts.
Staying in shape is mostly about program compliance.
It’s not about having the best fitness program, but about having one that’s good enough, eating less junk food and making sure you actually stick to it.
And most people have trouble doing that.
Successful dieters usually declare certain foods to be completely out of bounds, or allowed only during occasional designated cheat meals, rather than expecting themselves to eat everything in moderation.
It might seem like a simple matter of self-control. But it turns out that people with high self-control may not necessarily be better at resisting temptation. They might just experience it less often in the first place.
Counterintuitively, you’d be better off viewing photos of junk food, instead of healthy food, because viewing the photos induces satiety, decreasing the desire for and enjoyment of foods of the type shown in the photos.
