Want to lose weight? Eat the food you crave most
Wellington, May 10 : The best way to lose weight is to eat a little of the foods you crave, that’s the suggestion of an Australian doctor.[Image: junk-food5.jpg]

Dr George Blair-West, in the country for Diabetes New Zealand''s annual conference, believes that he understands why diets don''t work - and that the solution to effective weight control is about getting around the psychological attachment to food.

He says traditional diets that make people stay away from foods they love are ineffective and research shows that ultimately people rebel against this deprivation and end up over- eating.

"Traditional deprivation diets have a five-year success rate of around 5-20 percent. We''re better at treating most cancers than we are at treating obesity using this traditional approach,” Sunday Star Times quoted him, as saying.

Blair-West''s 2008 book, Weight Loss for Food Lovers, says the trick is to regularly eat controlled quantities of the foods people desire.

"If I was working with someone, I would work out what they have an attachment to and then prescribe them that two to four times a week," says Blair-West.

"When you allow people to have the food they crave, their cravings disappear,” he added.

The method works, he says, because it recognises the emotional importance of food.

Blair-West says another factor that causes over- eating is many people not savouring food. (ANI)

It is our general observation that most of the people try to find real peace of mind and are always in search of a quality yoga centre. Today, any Tom, Dick and Harry to have started yoga centres - without truly understanding what yoga is all about. We have been emphasizing that yoga is not only about asanas and pranayams - though they are an essential component. So, any centre merely teaching the yoga practice around these two practices is not a yoga centre.
We have been observing hundreds of educated and well qualified people being exploited in the name of yoga training at the yoga centres run by run-of-the-mill preachers. We believe we can help the society in a large way, by undertaking such yoga retreat so as to further spread the true light of yoga.
