How to Prevent Weight Gain: The EWH/SEWF programme

with 3 comments

This article follows from, and should be read in conjunction with, my previously published paper ‘Do More Eat Less’

There has been much speculation as to what is causing the obesity problem here in the UK, with the podgy fingers of blame often pointing towards the Government, the media, and even Maccy D’s.  My last paper*, Do More Eat Less looked at the startling effects of LAZY on the waistlines of the great British public, but today’s lesson will focus on the other leading cause of weight gain – the condition ‘GREEDY

GREEDY is a lesser documented condition that affects the human brain, causing it to reject the feeling of ‘fullness’ and continue to eat despite there being not immediate need to.  Paradoxically, people living with GREEDY very rarely – if ever – actually feel ‘hungry’.  As a result, sufferers tend to eat too much too often, which – over time – leads to weight gain and can contribute to the previously discussed medical condition LAZY.

(As a point of reference, studies have shown that the feeling of ‘hunger’ (or being ‘hungry’)  is our body’s natural way of letting us know that we need to eat food, while the feeling of ‘fullness’ is  our bodies natural way of telling us that we no longer need to feed our faces)

While GREEDY,like LAZY, does affect a high percentage of the British population, the good news is that it can be treated easily and effectively with the newly developed ‘Eat When Hungry / Stop Eating When Full’ system**.

The Eat When Hungry / Stop Eating When Full (EWH/SEWF) system is a foolproof method to discourage weight gain, and is very easy to fit in with your day-to-day life.  You simply eat when you feel hungry, and when you no longer feel ‘hungry’ (i.e. when are full), you simply stop eating.

In trials it was found that it did take a little while for participants to recognize genuine feelings of ‘hunger’ and ‘fullness’ – as a result of many years of GREEDY and the free availability of food, these sensations are not often experienced by people living in the first world.  However, with prolonged use of the EWH/SEWF programme, users will find that in time they will learn to recognize and appreciate the feelings of being both hungry and being contentedly full.

Following the EWH/SEWF programme (which is also sometimes referred to by its other name ‘eating as the human body is designed to‘) will not only result in decreased risk of weight gain, and the associated condition of LAZY, but can also can contribute to substantial monetary savings as followers find that they are no longer compelled to feed their pudgy fat by buy shed loads of take-aways, pies and cakes.
