How To Starve Yourself Of Negative Diet Patterns

The power of the mind has been well known to successful and fulfilled people for centuries. Experts of the sub conscious mind such as hypnotists have come up with ingenious ways that bypass the conscious mind and speak directly to the sub conscious. Often hypnosis is used to help people achieve their weight loss goals. In this article I will show you how to do that without any fancy hypnotist or high fees.

The sub conscious mind

The sub conscious mind is the most powerful force in any human being. When you first learned to drive you had to think about every single thing to keep that car driving in the way you wanted to. Gears, mirrors, indicators, steering and many other factors were constantly thought about. After a while though all of these become a habit. You repeat them so many times that your conscious mind no longer has to think about them. Your sub conscious runs you on auto pilot to carry out the manoeuvres.

So what does this have to do with weight loss? Well by using a concept called "auto suggestion" you can help your sub conscious mind "reprogram" yourself to stick to diets, eat healthier foods, enjoy working out (seriously) and much more.

Why people fail to lose weight

The reason so many people fail to lose weight is because they program themselves for failure each and every time they try a new diet. Because of bad experiences with shoddy diet programs in the past they often tell themselves "This won't work for me" and give up a few weeks in. Think about whenever you've tried to diet in the past. How long did you stick at? Probably not long enough if you're honest with yourself.

Starve yourself of negative thoughts

The technique I am to teach you now will enable you to starve yourself of these negative thought patterns that you are constantly bombarding your sub conscious mind with. Let's retraining yourself to be more positive about your weight loss and in turn develop a thick skin that won't give up whenever a diet doesn't show instant and massive results.

Your emotions and thoughts are like signals. Whenever you feel bad about weight loss or dieting and have thoughts such as "I'm always going to be overweight" stop what you're doing and follow these steps.

Step One - What makes you feel overweight?

Think about what it is that makes you feel you'll always be overweight. You'll get an image come into your mind. Maybe it's of you feeling down about a diet or you in the future and you haven't lost any weight.

Step Two - Self image

Pay attention to this image. This is your unconscious telling you what thought is holding you back in your quest for dieting. This is the image that you consistently put into your sub conscious. You have programmed yourself to think this way and that's why it is so easy to give up on diets when things get a little tough

Step Three - Shrink the image

Drain all the colour out of the image. Shrink it and move it into the distance. If it happens to reappear repeat the process. Drain it, shrink it and put it into the distance.

Step Four - The perfect you

Replace the image with an image of what you really want to be like. Fit, healthy and at your perfect weight. Get emotionally involved with the image. Think of how great it would feel to have lost all the weight you want to. Make it full colour and bring it closer to you.

Step Five - Pinch yourself

Hold your thumb and middle fingers together when you feel that rush of excitement about the new future you.

Whilst this may all sound a little crazy this a very cool technique for programming your sub conscious. If you do this every time you feel a little down about weight loss or have any negative thoughts soon it will become a habit.

Eventually you will have created "a mind anchor" so that you can press your thumb and middle fingers together and get the rush of excitement about your new, slim self. Any time you feel negative about weight loss you put your fingers together and your sub conscious will recognise this habit and use it to your advantage.

It's an NLP technique

Ok. I do understand that this may seem a little "out there" but this is based on the science of Neuro Linguisitc Programming (NLP). This is not some pie in the sky idea thought up by a lunatic. It is based on the science of the mind and it works in reprogramming yourself. Give it a go and stick at it!
