      This is a charming hub. I find your unique voice with English refreshing. The video by Camelia Johnson is delightful.

      Additional aids to dieting are 1) visualization, and 2) affirmations. Camelia mentioned in her video the problems she's having with her dreams and not wanting to process her emotions. Emotions have to be processed. Waltz music, color therapy, journaling, and counseling are all aids to processing the emotions.

      Very often a dieter is starved nutritionally even though he or she is overweight. The body is not getting the nutrients it needs, so the person overeats. Because the foods are high caloric but empty nutrient based, eating patterns become a vicious cycle.

      The dieter is very often emotionally starved too. There is a direct relationship between low self esteem and obesity. The layers of fat serve as a buffer in an attempt to protect the individual from the negative psychic bombardment that occurs daily. So, the solution is to begin to process the emotions.

      Keeping a picture of a dancer or athlete on the refrigerator serves as a diet incentive. This image goes into the subconscious and acts like a visual command to the body, "Look like this."

      Perhaps the biggest mistake dieters make is weighing themselves daily. Don't! Calmly accept yourself where you are. Be understanding and compassionate with yourself. Forgive your mistakes. Calmly tell yourself, 'This is where I am, and that (weight loss) is where I intend to go." Checking on the scale once a week is sufficient to see if your diet plan is working. If weight loss is just a fraction of a pound at first, that is success. Keep going.

      Pure water (H2O) is the best coolant and solvent. If one cannot obtain distilled water (not in plastic), then spring or filtered water is the next best choice.

      Because eating patterns are changing, yes, one can expect a mild healing crisis in the form of tiredness, possibly headaches, nausea, and flu-like symptoms. Massages, baths (as hot as comfortable), mild exercises, even enemas will get the dieter through the healing crisis, which may last three or four days. After that, if the energy doesn't pick up, then one needs to slow the cleansing process by eating something like whole grain bread. A consultation with a trusted health care provider is advised to be sure a healing crisis is not damaging the kidneys or liver, an extreme case. Usually after a day or two of slow cleansing, one can begin a diet regime again.

      Reward yourself when you reach part of your goal, say five pounds of weight loss. Do one thing that will make you happy. Buy a new shirt or blouse. Go to a movie you've been wanting to see. Get a new haircut or style. Perhaps you can purchase that book you've been wanting to read. Take time out for socializing--whatever makes you feel positive and emotionally nourished.

      Dieters' groups can be helpful because you don't feel you're alone in your effort to lose weight. Being with people who are losing weight can give you the psychological support you need to stick with a diet plan.

      Good living and good health!

      Thank you for writing this hub. Voted useful.
