More and more adults today in western society are getting fatter and fatter. There’s simply no nice way of saying it. There are some people who are perfectly OK with this, and if you are on of those, then stop reading. However if you are one of the millions of adults who have tried every diet on the planet with little or no results, then this article is for you.
There is one thing that many people forget when trying a novel diet or exercise plan. Almost one and all goes into it with the top intentions, and with a significant amount of willpower. Nevertheless, I’m sure you are well aware that resolution alone isn’t enough to sustain any diet or exercise plan. You need something else.
That something else is the collaboration of your subconscious mind. There’s a constructive reason for every behavior that you do. Believe it or not, you are receiving a lot of rewards from overeating other than the clean happiness the food gives you. The food may supply a feeling of emotional safety, consolation, and sometimes even self friendship.
So when you compel yourself through utter resolve to go on a diet, you are withholding all those secondary rewards that your subconscious thinks it can only through consumption. Only by way of retraining your subconscious can you stand a chance of permanent, lasting weight loss. And the decent news is that it is much more simple than you think.
The subconscious is that commanding part of you that controls all your emotions, your yearns, the beating of your heart and the breathing of your lungs. You will need to persuade it that you really do want to slim down. The only way to do that is to do some self meditation, or some self hypnosis.
The first thing you’ll need to do is develop an ideal proclamation of your perfect body weight. A positive declaration that is in the present tense. A constructive statement in the present tense that is packed with positive emotions. For example:
I enjoy and am grateful for my body that effortlessly fits into a size 34 slacks, and is hardly ever hungry. I enjoy and am glad about beneficial fresh food that supports my weight and lifestyle. I am wholly happy with my existence and am grateful for all aspects of it. My heart, lungs and organs are all vigorous and working well.
Take the time to write something that sounds rational, and makes sense to you. When you say it, get into a relaxed position, either laying down or in a good easy chair. Take a few deep breaths, and count yourself down from ten to one. With each number take a full-size deep breath, and on the gasp, say gently to yourself, “I am…” and then on the exhale say, “relaxed.”
Throughout each breath, picture in your mind the numbers ten through one. Once you get down to one, gently mention off a few body parts, like this: My arms are relaxed. My shoulders are calm, my chest is peaceful, etc., until you get down to your feet.
This whole procedure shouldn’t take more than five minutes. One you are suitably relaxed, silently and slowly articulate the declaration you’ve prepared ten or fifteen times. Take your time. Say it like you genuinely mean it. Even if you are a thousand pounds overweight, speak in the present tense as if you already are at your ideal weight, and actually feel the appreciation. The more gratefulness and gratitude you can muster, the quicker this will work.
Clearly, it takes a while to blaze off body fat, but if you keep up this easy process every day, you should start noticing some unconscious changes in your eating habits. You should start losing weight without ever needing to resort to determination or diet pills or anything like that.
Once you combine the fundamentals of a appropriately worded announcement, deep relaxation (or self hypnosis), adequate emotion, and regular repetition, your weight loss will be inevitable.
