Have you ever noticed and thought about what you would do for your toddler? I would assume a parent would do almost anything to make sure their toddler had the best medical care, nutrition, and a stable living environment. Most parents will do practically anything to protect their children and foster a nourishing environment. When I asked my own mother about what she did for me as a baby from a nutritional standpoint, I was surprised to learn that I ate only organic food and healthy food including sweet potato, semolina, couscous, yogurt, fresh fruits and vegetables, and eggs.
Did you ever stop to think how eating like a toddler could help you lose weight?
Did you ever stop and think what natural rhythm your child has during the first few years of life?
When a baby is born their stomach is the size of a walnut, the second day of life it is the size of a cherry, and about the 10th day, it is the size of a large egg. It continues to eventually grow to the size of an adult stomach (the size of a large grapefruit). This small stomach prevents your baby from eating a lot and therefore requires more frequent feeding, which helps prevent hunger and aid in satiety. I provide five tips below on how eating behaviors of a toddler may aid in sustained weight loss.
People can choose to eat healthy by taking a few tips from their child on healthy eating and proper nutrition. Most of the time a parent is preparing meals for their child, so why not eat every three hours like your children do? For those who don’t have children, it was not too long ago that you were a toddler and ate the same way. Making a few small changes to a person’s lifestyle can prevent some of the most dangerous diseases in the world.
After reading this if you are in disbelieve I challenge you to try to eat like a toddler for 1 week and see if you lose weight in the process. I am confident you will lose weight and start to feel great about your health.
