CUM SA PIERDETI IN GREUTATE ANTRENANDU-VA CREIERUL

Doriti sa pierdeti in greutate? Antrenati-va (si) creierul, nu corpul!

 In ciuda avertismentelor medicale,si eforturilor individuale, pentru a castiga razboiul impotriva obezitatii, din ce in ce mai multi oameni sunt supraponderali. Media din acest an este cu 10,9 kg in plus fata de anul 1960!

Cercetatorii si oamenii de stiinta din medicina, nu au gasit (inca) o pastila minune care sa ajute oamenii sa piarda in greutate rapid si/sau sa se mentina. Abordari traditionale, cum ar fi dieta si exerctțiile fizice pot functiona pe termen scurt, dar oamenii, aproape in mod inevitabil, recapata greutatea dinainte. Studii clinice, controlate de chirurgie si pierdere in greutate, au aratat unele imbunatatiri in diabetul zaharat, dar nu si a mortalitatii, in cazul cancerului si a bolilor cardiovasculare.

De curand s-a demonstrat ca nu este de ajuns sa lucrezi fizic pentru a slabi, ci trebui sa iti antrenezi SI creierul. “Circuitele” din creier, controleaza stresul alimentat de emotii, ganduri si comportamente. Aceste circuite pot fi “rewired” la om, astfel incat prin schimbarea lor, ar avea o sansa de a aborda cauza problemelor legate de stres, inclusiv obezitatea!

Se fac din ce in ce mai multe cercetari care indica faptul ca stresul joaca un rol important in cresterea in greutate. Multi oameni mananca pentru confortul mintal, ghidat de probleme si stres, nu de foame.

To take care of your body, take care of your brain

 

Primul pas in preluarea controlului asupra greutatii noastre este de ne destresa emotional. Exista cinci niveluri de stres si cinci instrumente de reglare. Pentru va face o idee despre modul in care lucreaza, face cateva exercitii de respiratie,  acordati-va timp pentru voi si a identifica nivelul de stres. Apoi, utilizati instrumentele necesare pentru a reduce stresul rapid. Am sa vi le postez in engleza, preluate dintr-un articol de psihologie:

1. Compassion Tool (Stress Level 1 – Very Low Stress) Say to yourself, “Feel compassion for myself,” then wait for a wave of compassion to flow through your body. Next say, “Feel compassion for others,” and feel a slight wave of warmth. Last, say, “Feel compassion for all living beings.”

2. Feelings Tool (Stress Level 2 – Low Stress) Ask yourself, “How do I feel?” Often, three feelings bubble up, but wait long enough so that one feeling is the strongest. That’s the one! Next ask yourself, “What do I need?” and, finally, “Do I need support?”

3. Flow Tool (Stress Level 3 – A Little Stress) Say the words: “I feel angry that …” and watch what words arrive in your mind to complete the sentence. State the sentence again, for seven more feelings: sad, afraid, guilty, grateful, happy, secure and proud. Notice the glow in your body and how your stress is gone.

Why? When we feel our negative feelings, they fade. We are no longer in peril and the brain naturally focuses on positive feelings that give us the energy to move forward and do good things in our life.

4. Cycle Tool (Stress Level 4 – High Stress) Start by stating what is bothering you (don’t hold back!), then protest that stress by saying “I feel angry that … I can’t stand it that … I hate it that … .” and each time watch what words arrive in your mind.

This can unlock the circuit so that you can change at a deeper level. Pause and take a few deep breaths, then say the words: “I feel sad that … I feel afraid that … I feel guilty that …” and watch what words arrive in your mind to complete each sentence.

Next support yourself, and say, “OF COURSE I could do that (such as overeat) because my unreasonable expectation is … ” and again wait for words to bubble up from your unconscious mind, such as: “I get my safety from overeating.” That’s just an old glitch of a memory that needs updating. So, update it!

Say the opposite expectation (such as “I cannot get my safety from food … I can get my safety from connecting to myself”winking. As you stated this when the circuit was freshly unlocked, the circuit can change into the expectation of your choosing.

As the new expectation becomes dominant, the emotional drives for various excesses (including food) can begin to fade so that changing behaviour becomes easier.

5. Damage Control Tool (Stress Level 5 – Very High Stress) When we’re that stressed, we need to be held and comforted. Sometimes just rocking in your chair or breathing deeply helps. Also, you can say calming words repeatedly: “Do not judge. Minimise harm. Know it will pass. After all, it’s just stress and it will fade.”

  1. Am tot citit studii pe tema asta si am vazut si diverse emisiuni la BBC foarte bine documentate. Creierul chiar joaca un rol important in scaderea in greutate si nu numai.
    Dieta si exercitiile fizice nu functioneaza in cazul celor care tin o dieta si fac miscare doar pana ajung la greutatea propusa iar apoi se intorc la a manca haotic si renunta treptat la miscare, iar asta se intampla deoarece nu inteleg ca a manca sanatos trebuie transformat intr-un stil de viata (asta suna deja ca un cliseu dar este cat se poate de adevarat).

    Creierul e responsabil de tot, daca intr-o situatie reusesti sa ti-l controlezi reusesti sa manevrezi situatia dupa bunul plac. Sunt multi care au facut boli fizice din probleme psihice.
    Nu e de ajuns sa te infometezi sau sa tii nu stiu ce regim rebuie sa constientizezi si sa iti antrenezi si creierul deci eu cred in ce scrie aici.
