In the resorts with the system "all inclusive" there is a risk to gain a few extra kilos. Resist the temptations of the buffet will help intuitive nutrition. Its principles are: 1) to eat only when a feeling of hunger appears; 2) move away from the table when full. We listen to ourselves.The body will tell you what products, when and in what quantities are needed. We fix the result by keeping a diary: we record all meals (menu, time), emotions and sensations before and after (joy, repentance, fatigue, a burst of energy). This will help you learn to eat only when you really want to, and create a diet that you can always stick to.

- Misconceptions about the intuitive power - that you go to fast food and start eating uncontrollably. On the contrary, you will learn to feel normal (and each has its own, depending on the season, mental and physical condition, stress). If you enjoy the dish - aroma, taste, decoration, overeating can be avoided.
