You have heard a lot about crash diets, high protein diets, fat-free diets, egg diets, liquid-formula diets and diets requiring wonder foods and drugs, and those build around special exercises. Far too often the crash diets find that the scales show a rise the moment the regime ends, and so begins the seesaw existence of loss and gain that is discouraging and demoralizing.
* So, what is a PFI?
* What makes the PFI system unique?
PFI otherwise known as”Portion Frequency Item” in full, is a series of food table designed by a doctor, dietician or a nutritionist, that teach you how to eat and at which time to eat.
The PFI (Portion Frequency Item) is unique because it enables you to lose weight in pounds and also keep them off-by teaching you how to eat.
PFI is always designed to meet the need and actually of modern day life: it makes it possible for you to eat sensibly at home, in the office and in social and occupational situations that present food traps. You don’t have to give up your diet because you are going to a party, or out on a date, or because you are being taken out for lunch. You can have sandwiches for lunch, cocktail before dinner and wine with it; you may even have ice cream for dessert! Your diet will not be restricted to special foods and fad gimmicks and you will not have to rely on pills. You will not even have to count the calories because it has been done for you. You can eat as well as those slim friends you envy once you learn about food. There is no magic to the basic method. PFI system is a rigid dietary approach- a group of diets designed to meet your individual needs. Each is based on a specific Portion-Frequency-Item control that has been shown to be amazingly successful and surprisingly practical. The diets define precisely what you may have, how often you may have it, and how much of it you may have. They are a unification of proven concept well-known to the nutrition professionals but rarely presented as a practical method of weight control. By this diet system, physician and nutritionist can predict and effect weight loss to the tenth of a pound. Unless you have a medical reason for not dieting, this message is intended for you; whether you are long overweight or never had a weight problem until you give up smoking and even if you are the person that who finds it easy to lose weight but all to easy to put it back. But this is not for the dreamer who goes to bed at night hoping to wake up thin.
(a) PFI system will: provide you with the proper nutrition to maintain health and appearance. (b) Allow you to lose weight consistently.
(c) Give you the type of training and food education that will be the basis of permanent weight and appetite control.
What makes people Overweight The reason why some people are overweight is as a result of excessive eating or because of eating more food than the body needs for energy. But did you know that more than 90% of overweight people are fast eaters? That the majority are stand up eaters, people who do more eating while standing than when sitting? Or the most Overweight people are such plate cleaners that when they are through eating their dishes look prewashed? If you wish to lose weight then you must start to eat slowly so that you can be able to give the body process that stop hunger attitude and also avoid the the seconds. You can also try eating slowly than everybody on the table. You can also try to leave a half bite on the plate if there is more than you need. Some individual isolate themselves on an island of fat, they use Overweight as a protection wall and make themselves unattractive and avoid relationships, they also avoid taking responsibilities and challenges as a result they are fat. Oral drive is an inner force to put something in the mouth, whether it is food, gum, cigarettes, fingernail or a pencil. All people has this, some much stronger than others, but because a man is overweight or is a heavy smoker doesn’t mean he has strong oral drive. Smoking for most people is a habit that is perpetuated and reinforced by it’s continuation. This habit involves more than the inflation of smoke. Cigarettes also have a tranquilizing effect on tension. In as much as giving up of cigarettes doesn’t mean that there is a giving up of tension, most smoking tends to use the hand and oral approach to continue sedation originally afforded by cigarettes. Eating is an almost reflex way of attaining a similar type of gratification. Because additional food means extra weight, a large number of individual who stop smoking start gaining unless they follow a preventive program. If you are planning to stop smoking and are worried about what that will do to your weight, I will suggest the following: Concentrate on the between – meal time. Since the extra eating comes when you would be smoking. So take an extra cup of coffee at the end of the meal (without milk, cream or sugar). Stop staying at the table long after meal and also try eating carrot or garden eggs, if you find the need to eat something, if you practice like that your desire for extras will soon diminish. Or you can the use of extra cigarette holders which you will soon give up. Do not try to give up smoking, if you are overweight and go on diet, the simultaneous approach can be achieved rarely. Stop smoking first and follow the weight loss program and avoid further weight gain. When you have definitely stopped smoking, give your self three to six months to prove it then start PFI diet. If you have already given up smoking, and have thereby gained weight, then simply follow the plan on weight reduction. Most people who give up smoking find out that there is a gradual increase in eating and weight (unless the above preventive program is started). After a while their weight levels off. If you don’t have a preventative program, start one today. Do not delay. And do not think that if you are overweight, smoking will control your appetite. It won’t!
