“Every weight loss program, no matter how positively it’s packaged, whispers to you that you’re not right. You’re not good enough. You’re unacceptable and you need to be fixed.”

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! Please hold onto your seat, don’t blink your eyes for a second! This is an amazing and mind bending stuff will shock you beyond your wildest imagination.
To begin with let me ask you this simple question. Alright? What does your weight say for you? Is there a hidden benefit of body size? Why? Because honestly, the same ‘benefit’ dynamic is at work in the situation of weight loss. We want to lose weight, but there is a silent voice in us that speaks louder than we do. Operating as if the Wizard of Oz did, behind the green curtain. Maintaining a body size larger than our biologic comfort figure is how we send wordless messages to others.
Even, if we Spend Years of dieting and sweating pounds, this voice will express itself through a relentless sabotage that results in weight staying rock solid. Little or none of this is conscious. We don’t purposely sabotage our healthy eating and scuttle our exercise plans to keep our weight high! Sorry, but it may be still happening.
We Seem To Spontaneously regain the weight without really knowing why. What is our challenge? Answer! To give that voice words and sounds so that it can speak directly to us to stop expressing itself through extra weight. For this reason, the part of the body pride’s cycle is learning to use words instead of weight to express ourselves.
One moment please! Before we delve deep into the article proper, do allow me to give you a quick glimpse of what wonderful tactics lies ahead of us. Alright?
To jump start this article; let’s take a sneak peek of what great ideas are in store for us. Okay? Below are the psychological tactics that all smart dieter must internalize and practice at all cost.
- 1. Believe That Nutritious Food Is Not “Fattening” By Itself.
- 2. Accept The Fact That Fasting Or Special Diet Works Because Your Mind Believes It Will Work.
- 3. Deem As Truth That Your Body Always Obeys The Instructions Of Your Mind.
- 4. Recognize That Attitude And Belief Are The Common Denominators Of All The Causes Of Obesity.

Now that you have a quick glance of this article, you should be prepared to fast forward to the first and foremost tactic to hasten your weight loss. Agree or not?
- 1. NUTRITIOUS FOOD IS NOT “FATTENING” BY ITSELF.
You probably can see the point of this one right off. The thoughts you have about food are what make it fattening. A study done on people weighing precisely their desired weight showed that all of them could eat whatever they wanted without any concern or worry. Plus they could do so because all of them had one thing in common. They all had the same thought that they could eat whenever they wanted whatever without gaining weight. “I never gain weight” is simple enough. Get the picture?
By the way, the next tactics is where it gets even more interesting. Don’t believe? Just continue reading.
- 2. ANY PHYSICAL TECHNIQUE, SUCH AS FASTING OR SPECIAL DIET WORKS BECAUSE YOUR MIND BELIEVES IT WILL WORK.
That statement is a little flip. You probably wonder what I mean by it. I mean you must just use an uncommon amount of common sense! Believe it or not, until and unless you handle the CAUSE of your overweight, you will most likely gain the weight back with added interest, if I may say so myself.
A moment please! Do you want the next tactic fast or are you in a hurry? All the same let’s proceed!
- 3. YOUR BODY ALWAYS OBEYS THE INSTRUCTIONS OF YOUR MIND.
Maybe your have heard this before but it bears repeating. Just a few words can do much. Mind research clinics have discovered that it’s really the instructions you give your body about food thatmatter. Gaining and losing weight is highly dependent on your inner voice that is the deciding factor. You don’t need a PhD in Psychology to gasp this truth.
And in passing, I would like to reveal the fourth tactic which I believe is very workable in most cases using applied psychology.
- 4. ATTITUDE AND BELIEF ARE THE COMMON DENOMINATORS OF ALL THE CAUSES OF OBESITY.
No matter how you argue or try to justify, common sense will dictates that what causes you to be overweight is what you believe. In truth, this ‘belief’ never failsto produce positive or negative results all thetime.
Next, here is the best part. Although it is the final tactics yet believe me, it is the most effective way to lose weight psychologically.
- 5. YOU MUST NOT DIET FROM NEGATIVE THOUGHTS ABOUT YOUR BODY AND FOOD AND YOURSELF.
If there is something I want you to take away from this last tactics but be prepared to be shocked, disappointed and finally energized with this new workable strategythat will lead to fantastic result. This is the only way to get permanent result. Therefore to be successful you must use only positive thoughts.

Next, remember that fasting or special diet only works because your mind believes it will work. Beside your body always obeys the instructions of your mind. Plus attitude and belief are the common denominators of all the causes of obesity. Finally, you must not diet from negative thoughts about your body and food and yourself.
