Have you been trying to lose weight for years?
Did it used to be easier to drop a few pounds?
Are you struggling to find that “magic cure” to help you shed the weight?
The cycle of disappointment caused by trying to find a way to GET THAT WEIGHT OFF is overwhelming and can have real consequences for your emotional well-being and your physical health.
If you’re ready to experience real CHANGE that lasts, you’ll need to first understand what’s blocking your change.
1. Dieting is healthy!
If you’ve been dieting for decades, and consider it just part of life, a change of mindset is in order for you to experience lasting change.
In fact, if you’ve been putting your body in chronic deprivation mode, over time, you’re making it harder and harder to maintain a vibrant and responsive metabolism.
If you’re like most people in this category, you’re so tired of fighting this endless battle of on-and-off yo-yoing year after year that eventually you just cannot deprive yourself anymore.
Now is the time for CHANGE!
When you think about self-loving steps like filling your body with the nutrients it so desperately needs, you’ll be on a course of action that gets results.
2. Magic solutions do exist!
This is one assumption that can stop progress in its tracks.
There is NO magic bullet to losing weight or feeling great.
It takes putting one foot in front of the other, one CHANGE at a time, one step at a time. So drop this false thinking that’s preventing you from changing.
3. I’ll be happier if I lose 10 pounds
Woah, is this a biggie!
Associating your happiness with a number on the scale is dangerous.
That’s because it doesn’t tell you anything about your true health: How much energy you have, how much muscle you’re building, how fit you are.
These are the important factors; not what the scale says!
4. No pain, no gain……or loss
If you’ve put yourself through one diet after the other throughout your life, then you’ve become accustomed to thinking that in order to lose weight, you’re going to have to deprive yourself.
But that’s just not true. And worse, you won’t get lasting change from something that’s painful, and that you can’t sustain!
You’ll only get lasting results if your approach is something that brings you joy.
5. Weight loss is mind over matter
Your body needs nutrients.
And if your “diet” doesn’t supply those nutrients, your body responds with hunger. Hunger is a survival instinct and once it kicks in, there’s no way your mind will be able to “will” your body differently.
There’s just no way around it.
That’s because your body’s natural need for nutrients is so strong, your mind just can’t overcome these signals.
6. Failure is all my fault
A cycle of dieting makes you gain weight.
If you exercise excessively, you’ll become weak.
You’re sure to gain fat if you overeat.
After years and years of this process, affecting your body with chronic stress, starvation and bingeing, you’ll no longer be able to lose weight and you’ll increase the aging process.
And blame it all on yourself.
But it’s not your fault!
Self-defeating thoughts like “If I had more discipline”” or “I’m not strong enough”” puts fuel on the fire.
It’s NOT your fault that you can’t stick to your diet.
It’s your body’s way of functioning and you can’t fight it.
If you deprive your body, it WILL seek out food in some way, shape or form – survival doesn’t rationalize waiting for a healthy choice. It takes the quickest calories it can.
Your body is like a well-oiled machine.
Give it care, attention and the right fuel, and it’ll perform.
Quick fixes and restrictive dieting are the real cause behind the disappointing, repetitive cycle of failure that so many experience – it’s not your lack of discipline or strength. You can’t succeed if you continue with this false mindset.
So confront these misconceptions about dieting for what they really are: Change Blockers that are sure to put you on the path to long-term, detrimental effects on your health and weight.
