Diets Dont Work... So How Are You Going To Lose Weight?

By: Margarethe De Clermont

Another day, another new diet, another new guru or another miraculous new weight loss pill...promising instant weight loss overnight.

The diet industry is enormous; billions of dollars are spent and made every year. Anything that even remotely target a piece of the weight loss market can bring considerable wealth to those who are determined to cash in on it. So on it goes, producing yet another "new" diet/weight loss expert to tempt us to part with out hard-earned cash...

There are so many different diets and weight-loss programs on the market at the moment that it is extremely difficult for somebody who has little or no knowledge of good nutrition to know where to turn to when they want to lose weight.Which diet will work? Which book should you read? Where can you get more information?

If it sounds too good to be true, it generally is.There is no such thing as instant weight loss. Starvation diets don't work. I guess you have figured out by now that it is not possible to go from being unfit and obese one week to being svelte and in shape a few days to a month later.

One of the principles of NLP is that if something doesn't work, if you don't get the results you hoped for, then you should try something else. Makes sense, doesn't it? So why do we keep on going on crash diets? You would have heard this many times before: Crash diets don't work and the annoying fact is, this is indeed true.

Many people will start on a diet, but the percentage that will succeed will be small(less than 10%) compared to those who fail.

So why do some many people when face with failure blame it on themselves and try again... or change to another diet in the hope that this diet will finally work?

One of the problems that face people who are on a diet is the fact that they are constantly thinking about food. It is on their mind all the time and they soon end up feeling deprived.

They talk about it all the time, they tell everyone they are on a diet and bore them with the gory details...food becomes the main focus of their thoughts throughout the day (and the night!).

Does this sound familiar at all?

When you start a diet the first thing you have to deal with is HUNGER and that is why most diets fail by tea time on Monday morning. Starvation is too hard for most people to endure and for this simple reason most diets fail.

No one wants to starve and it is only human nature to do everything we can to ensure we get sufficient food so that we don't have to suffer those persistant, nagging hungerpains.

If you are trying to maintain a diet that constantly leaves you feeling hungry, then you are most likely destined to fail. It's just too difficult at the best of times, and when life gets complicated it becomes unbearable.

The outcome for most people after having had to endure this period of hardship is to get back onto the 'eating too much' bandwagon and pile the weight right back on and in no time at all. They are left feeling deeply disappointed and worse about themselves than they would have felt if they had never dieted in the first place.

So what's the solution? Try something else! Try something different. Try self-hypnosis. Hypnosis will help you change your eating patterns, unearth bad habits and reveal false food and eating beliefs. It is definely worth investigating...before you start another diet doomed to failure.
