6I am hungry!
Your food plan has been developed to reduce hunger and to give a feeling of well being during the weight loss phase. If you are hungry, you may not be following the plan 100% by eating more carbs than prescribed. If you skip your protein supplements or have them more than 4 hours apart this can also cause hunger. The most common reasons you may be hungry are as a result of physiological reasons such as low blood sugar known as hypoglycaemia. Another physiological reason for increased hunger is fatigue caused by lack of sleep. Your hunger may also be the result of psychological causes if your are dealing with stressful circumstances The most important thing for you to do is to commit to following the plan 100% as prescribed to make sure your hunger is not being caused by hypoglycaemia, then make sure you are getting 7-8 hours of sleep each night and finally to address any stress your are experiencing. This strategy will usually allow you to manage your hunger.

8I feel deprived when on a diet.
It is very important for you to address this emotion because it is the number one reason people give up on the program. Ask yourself: what do I tell myself that makes me feel that way? This feeling of deprivation is an emotion that results from how you perceive the diet. In your mind, the benefits of eating whatever you want, whenever you want, are stronger than those of being at your desired weight. So it is very important that you confront these thoughts right away. By confront I just mean to challenge the way you think. Ask yourself: What do I tell myself that makes me feel that way? Repeat the question until you know why you feel deprived. When you have identified your reason, ask yourself if it is a realistic thought or an unrealistic one? Then ask yourself: What is more important for me? To have my health, to look and feel my or to be able to eat whatever and whenever I like? The feeling of deprivation can be reduced by using this technique

Creating new habits is difficult but it is essential in order to maintain your weight loss. Start by selecting one small easy goal to be achieved in the coming week. As you add small successes week after week this will build up your confidence. Be realistic and don’t try to change your most difficult habits right away and if you have not worked on your chosen habit this week, don`t feel guilty – just recommit focusing on it in the coming week.
11I have an event like a party or a dinner at a restaurant where that will make it difficult for me to stick to my diet.
In order to avoid cravings, especially at parties or restaurants, I strongly suggest that you have one or 2 protein supplements prior to going as this will reduce your hunger and will help a lot to stay in control.
12I can’t see why I am doing this!
You have difficulties recording the physical or psychological benefits acquired since you follow the program. You have to know that we do things because we feel that they are worthwhile. Be constantly aware of those benefits. Think about them, say them loud and even write them down frequently. It is very important to be conscious of these benefits and think about them daily so you do not want to lose them anymore. Human beings have the bad habit to forget about the benefits once he has reached his goal.
