Weight loss is so difficult for most people. If you listen to the media it is as simple as calories in versus calories out. While true, there are so many factors involved. The brain and how we think plays such a huge role. A few ears back I discovered Beck Diet Solution. I really like how they approach weight loss and healthy eating.
Below is information from their website: https://beckinstitute.org/get-training/topics/beck-diet-solution/
You don’t lose weight and keep it off long term just by cutting calories and increasing your exercise. What’s the solution? You have to learn how to diet.
This means: Changing the sabotaging thinking that gets you off track.
For example: “I ate something I wasn’t supposed to. Oh, well, I might as well eat whatever I want for the rest of the day and start again tomorrow.”
Solving diet-related problems: Diet Traps include emotional eating, food pushers, special occasions, stress, feelings of deprivation, discouragement, lack of motivation, disappointment, and other hurdles that interfere with your weight loss efforts.
As you can see it is more about how you perceive things and less about what foods and how much. We are going to dedicate Wednesday to learning and implementing these tips that can change how you look at dieting and weight loss.
Until next time…
Change. Discover. Transform.
