With weight lose, knowledge is power….
So many people think that if you get on a diet you will lose weight. Sure that might be true, but what happens when you are off that diet? You slowly go back to those habits, you eat cheeseburgers and ice cream. You don’t plan for success and find yourself running to McDonald’s to get a quick fix. Losing weight should not be about a diet it should be able a lifestyle change.
Losing weight is a mental game. You will always have to fight with those inner voices to eat the unhealthy stuff. To go back to the food that use to make you happy. But you have to have the “willpower” to tell those voices that you are happy with your new life plan. You have to tell them to shut up! The more you know about weight loss the easier it will be for you to lose weight.
You have to ask questions like “Why do I overeat?” Once you figure those questions out this will lead you to control. Simple but powerful!
Know the lies
There are so many lies out there in the fitness world. Take this pill, do this workout…blah blah blah. Let’s say you’ve been watching TV. You see this ad that tells you that you can lose weight in your sleep. All you have to do is sleep! Amazing right! Let’s say you believe that commercial. You can lose weight without exercises, without changing your food, all you do is sleep. And now you start eating all you want because you believe in it.
Well, you can’t. It is not possible to lose weight in your sleep. It just simply doesn’t work that way. Have you tried this? Or tried the magic diet pill? What happened? Where are you now? My bet is that you are still unhappy and are still in the same place before you believed in this sleep theory.
So, what do you do now? If you want to really find out, “Why do I overeat?” First, you have to forget about those miracle diets, you have to forget about the quick fix. You have to unlearn all the unworkable things that you were told. And what really does work. When you do you will understand, “Why do I overeat?” and you’ll know what to do about it.
So really search that question. Find why you “overeat.” Maybe you are not eating enough good foods or maybe you are depressed and that food makes you feel better just for a second. Know the reason. This will help you know where to go next!
