Discover the Missing Link: Why your Diet is Failing you

by : heather picken



There is a missing link in why diets will often fail women. It is the mental diet you must have and re-programing your subconscious mind is the key to losing weight and more importantly keeping it off. If you learn how to program it the right way you will stop the vicious cycle of gaining weight or not being able to lose it.

The average person thinks 40,000-50,000 thoughts a day and most of them are negative. You get what you think about. If you think that you will always be broke then you will. The same thing applies to gaining weight or not being able to lose it! Your subconscious mind is so powerful that it remains on like a computer program running 24/7.

This means when you are sleeping whatever thoughts you have during the day they are programmed in your subconscious. Think about the dreams you have at night they are a direct reflection of your current mental state, so if you wake up in the middle of the night scared from a bad dream that means you are scared of something going on in your present life.

How does this work with weight loss?

First let's look at why so many women have trouble either keeping weight off or losing weight. It simply starts with what they believe.

For example do find that you say these statements to yourself:

"I am too old to lose weight."

"My whole family is overweight and it's just in my genes."

"It's too hard."

"Nothing ever works for me."

"I can't seem to motivate myself to eat better or workout."

I'm sure you might have a few more to add to this list.

If you have these types of beliefs then it will be hard for you to lose weight or keep it off because you have essentially programmed your mind for failure.

So what can you do?

If you find your mind is programmed with these disempowering beliefs you can actually re-program it for ultimate success. Think again about your subconscious mind being a computer program and giving it a better program to run, rather than one that takes up too much space or has a lot of errors.

I want to share with you some powerful motivational tools that help re-program your mind for ultimate fat-loss success. Nutrition and exercise are very important. However, without the right mind set, permanent weight loss is impossible. You need to know how to change the internal dialogue or program in your mind in order to change the physical part. Trust me no diet will work if you don't understand and apply these principles.

Here are some powerful ways to re-program your mind:

Start by putting yourself on a "mental diet". Each time you find yourself saying something negative about your body, food, or exercise try turning that negative statement into a more positive one.

For example you might say "I hate this fat around my stomach" Instead say "My stomach is getting flatter".

This sounds very simple yet it's a very powerful way to start changing your beliefs and in turn change your body. Just for fun keep a log of how many times you do this and of course make sure you re-frame the negative statements into positive ones. After putting these powerful mental tools in place you will be amazed and think it's magic because all of the sudden your weight seems to melt off your body and you will be happier than you have ever been.
