This is a simple way to measure whether or not you’re giving your body too much food. Intermittent fasting is a great way to limit the amount of food that you consume in a given day. If keeping a schedule for eating is too much for every day, you could fast intermittently a few days each week.
Limiting the amount of food that you eat is a great way to be mindful of your food intake. We’re definitely not saying to not eat! Intermittent fasting simply allows you to do so mindfully and with purpose.

Emotional and mental health are a vital piece of the weight loss journey. For so many, physical health when it comes to weight loss or gain are somewhat dependent on mental and emotional health.
So, it’s important to ask yourself, “How am I doing? What triggers me? How do I handle stress?”
Sometimes, life happens and we need to grab some fast food or have a drink or meet up with a friend over a great meal. Those are all okay and often just what we need in order to maintain good, whole health. But, has it become a pattern?
Just thinking it through and having some honest conversation with yourself is a great first step. From there, talk with a trustworthy friend, start journaling and meditation, join a new class or community group, or connect with a professional. Your health is important and weight loss maintenance is a part of our health.

Stress causes a person to react in many different ways. For many, stress causes a person to consume extra food or seek out food that isn’t very helpful for weight loss maintenance purposes. Stress also causes the body to sense that something must be happening, and therefore, it needs to hang on to extra nutrition and water to keep you safe and healthy.
As stress levels decrease, the body is able to let some of that excess go. In order to stay at your new weight, keeping stress under control is key.
