How You Can Ditch Those Yo-Yo Diets For Good

Like many other people you may be tired of going on endless diet plans and although you may lose some weight at the start it always ends up piling back on again. It's not much fun, is it? Don't worry though, you are not alone, diets don't work for around 95 percent of the people who embark on them and they fail to lose any significant amount of weight for the long-term either.

You may not be aware but the reason diets don't work is that they actually work against your metabolism (your body's engine). It's a fact your body does not like diets at all, and will do all it can to help you to fail. If that isn't bad enough, when you go 'off' your diet your body does its best to restore you to your previous weight usually with some extra as well.

The reasons why you have become and stay overweight are based in your habits, particularly in regard to nutrition and proper exercise. You may be eating the wrong types of foods, too much of them and avoiding exercise and when these things combine it is virtually impossible to remain slim and toned.

You may not even realize it but your habits are like a 'template' in your mind. Hidden patterns of thought and self-beliefs shaped over your life dictate your behaviour and drive your actions (or inaction). This template has a set procedure for "every circumstance" and it just happens automatically without you 'thinking' or 'choosing'.

If this 'mind' template has been formed with misinformation and inherited wisdom about nutrition, dieting and exercise together with some plain old self-delusion losing weight is always going to be a struggle.

Even though you may have good intentions and are fully aware of the healthy changes you need to make that old template is going to override those good intentions every time. This is the self-sabotage we see with stop/start, on/off, yo-yo diets and exercise programs and the pattern is repeated continually causing frustration and misery. Engaging in a battle with yourself can never have a happy ending.

What really needs to happen is those old templates in your inner mind programming need updating so they are a match for what you want to have happen on the 'outside' of your body. If it is a slim, fit, healthy, feel-good body that you want then you need to make some changes on the 'inside' first so you can get out of your own way and achieve it.

Take it from me, your inner mind programming can greatly influence and affect your weight and your health - both short term and long-term. The trick is to know how to make the way you think and what you believe work for you, not against you. Being 'in the know' about why things happen to you in regards to losing weight will make it easier for you to understand what you need to do to put things right.

First we need to find the obstacles and roadblocks in your inner mind and then we change them to more positive and focused thoughts and self-beliefs that will serve you better.

To sum up how it all works - it is about getting to know YOU a whole lot better and there are some simple facts you need to know about how YOU work. This better understanding gives you the control to make the healthy changes that you need to make to lose weight and more importantly KEEP IT OFF.

There is no need for you to be living in an overweight and unhappy body and there is no need for you to live a life plagued by endless diets - it does not have to be this way. Imagine what it would be like to be slim and healthy. It's a great thought, isn't it? But you can make it more than a thought - you can make it really happen and I can help you do that.
