An Effective Positive Psychology Mental Exercise for Lasting Weight Loss

Think you know it all when it comes to lasting weight loss? Think again.

I want to share an effective positive psychology exercise that will help you lose weight and achieve your weight-loss goal that has nothing to do with calorie counting! 

When they first come to meet me, my weight-loss clients always say the same thing: "I know it all. I've tried everything and I know exactly what I should be doing, I just need some help with motivation."

But such a position of certainty doesn't allow any space for lasting change.

So please, let go of all the old inhibiting ideas you're holding on to about weight loss and diets. They haven't worked so far and they are not serving you.  Forget about the 'I have a slow metabolism...' or 'being overweight is in my genes...' or 'the only way to lose weight is to stick to some strict diet and deny myself the foods I love...'



The Psychology of Weight Loss: “Thinking Thin” Will Help You Lose Weight

I am always interested in the cause as opposed to the symptom because this is where we can affect lasting change.

In my work as a weight loss therapist I have really come to understand that lasting weight loss is not about what you eat, it’s about why and how you eat.

I’m a psychologist and weight loss specialist and I help people to lose weight without dieting. I focus on the psychology of weight loss.

Understanding the mindset of a thin person will help you to change your relationship with food and your body. By the time you’ve finished reading this you will have the tools you need to start ‘thinking thin’. Weight loss will be a joyous consequence!
When you see a thin person, what do you think? Is it something like…

“It’s genetics, he must have the skinny gene” or, “she must starve herself to look like that”, or “she must just have a really fast metabolism”, or “he couldn’t be happy, because he must be hungry all the time!”.

This is such a misconception!

Did you know that people who are naturally thin and people who constantly battle with their weight are extremely different? Not just on the outside but on the inside too.

So many people think that genetics have a fundamental part to play in our size, but recent scientific evidence tells a different story.

The most significant difference between people who battle with their weight and people who are thin is not genetics or their metabolic rate.
