The Freedom of Counting your Bites

Some people look at Bite Counting as another Restrictive  "rule".
The thing is, some of us do not eat like naturally thin people. 
And some of us never will eat like naturally thin people without some guidelines and putting forth effort
One of those guidelines that has helped me 
is Counting my Bites.
                                  Some of the Advantages...

Counting my Bites gives me a Clear Place to Stop. 

 Counting Bites is virtually free

    Food choices are many
       You dont need to follow a special diet or foods, but if you choose to, counting bites can work with that too!

      It doesn't require that I spend alot of time pouring over calorie counting books, apps, and websites

  The concept of bites is so simple, A bite is a Bite! When your bite limit is up, you are done, you can always eat that food the next time/day etc...

      When I go to my mother-in-laws for a meal with the family, I don't have to worry about how many calories are in a certain food. I know how many Bites I can have, and I know where to stop.

   When you go to a restaurant for a fancy dinner with your spouse, you can enjoy a nice amount of food and feel full without overdoing it! Simply stop at 25 normal sized bites, and enjoy it slowly. ( I use the Eat Slower app, setting it to about 1 minute between bites)

You can precisely control the rate of weight loss by decreasing and increasing bites as needed if you desire to lose a bit faster, slower,  maintain, or gain.

It's all about STOPPING! That is where bite counting comes in, a place to stop, eating any food you desire/in your plan, without spending hours of your day obsessing over calories

 I will close with this little bit from the chapter on The Mouthful Diet by Edward Abramson, etc

The more we do a behavior, the more it becomes automatic and reinforced 

One Quote from the book in the Mouthful Diet Chapter... page 95

Learning to stop eating is the most difficult part of dieting.  When you practice stopping frequently enough, it becomes easier to continue this pattern.  At first, stopping at bite 150 is as difficult if not more difficult as stopping at bite 75 or less later on.  This is especially true when you stop and don't see weight loss. Don't give up. Keep cutting down and keep stopping.  You are rehearsing  the behavior which is going to make the difference later.  You are controlling your own eating behavior.  You are stopping when you don't want to stop.

So practice STOPPING! This really seems to be a lot of Dieting/Maintaining  in one paragraph. When we STOP eating when our allotted Bite count is eaten, and Accept it, make a habit of it, that is when the results come. The results that Follow Behavior.

  36. You should see how my acquaintance Wesley Virgin's biography begins in this SHOCKING AND CONTROVERSIAL VIDEO.

    Wesley was in the army-and soon after leaving-he unveiled hidden, "MIND CONTROL" tactics that the government and others used to get anything they want.

    These are the exact same methods many celebrities (notably those who "became famous out of nothing") and the greatest business people used to become wealthy and successful.

    You've heard that you utilize only 10% of your brain.

    Really, that's because the majority of your BRAINPOWER is UNTAPPED.

    Maybe that expression has even occurred INSIDE your very own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head around seven years back, while riding an unregistered, trash bucket of a car with a suspended driver's license and on his bank card.

    "I'm absolutely frustrated with living check to check! When will I finally make it?"

    You've been a part of those those questions, isn't it right?

    Your very own success story is waiting to be written. All you have to do is in YOURSELF.


  37. Haha wow! I'm really impressed by this option of dieting. It's much easier that to count calories and you don't need to constantly think about foods.
    As I understood it's important to eat healthy foods while counting bites cause for example you can eat the granola bar in 10 bites or even less but it has more calories than an apple for example.
    For those reasons different calorie counters are creates, for example like this

  39. It was during my research on HIV/Herpes that I stumbled upon the Hiv/Herpes information; information which is quite easy to find when doing a search for STD on google. I was into conspiracy at the time and thought of HIV/Herpes Cured' being a conspiracy was something ignorant though,I found it pretty interesting about herbal medicine. I asked questions about the Herbal cure's on official HIV/Herpes websites and I was banned for doing so by moderators who told me that I was parroting Hiv/Herpes propaganda. This reinforced my belief that there is a cure for Hiv/Herpes Then i found a lady from germany name Achima Abelard Dr Itua Cure her Hiv so I send him a mail about my situation then talk more about it and send me his herbal medicine I drank for two weeks.And today I'm Cured no Hiv/Herpes in my life,I searched for Hiv/Herpes groups to attempt to make contact with people in order to learn more about Hiv/Herpes Herbal Cure I believed at this time that you with the same disease this information is helpful to you and I wanted to do the best I could to spread this information in the hopes of helping other people.That Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's,Alzheimer’s disease,Bechet’s disease,Crohn’s disease,Cushing’s disease,Heart failure,Multiple Sclerosis,Hypertension,Colo_Rectal Cancer,Lyme Disease,Blood Cancer,Brain Cancer,Breast Cancer,Lung Cancer,Kidney Cancer,Love Spell,psoriasis,Lottery Spell,disease,Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Syndrome Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Infertility,Tach Disease ,Epilepsy ,Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Autism,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma, (measles, tetanus, whooping cough, tuberculosis, polio and diphtheria)Allergic diseases.Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Lung Cancer,Breast Cancer,Colo-Rectal Cancer,Blood Cancer,Prostate Cancer,siva.Fatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone ToxicitySyndrome Fibrodysplasia Ossificans ProgresS sclerosis,Seizures,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic diseases.Hiv_ Aids,Herpe ,Copd,Glaucoma., Cataracts,Macular degeneration,Cardiovascular disease,Lung disease.Enlarged prostate,Osteoporosis.
