Anyone who is ﬁt and healthy will tell you it didn't happen by a fad diet or a miracle pill, it happened because they have the habits of success and excellence. 95% of all dieters will gain the weight back after losing it, and the reason is simple, they didn't continue healthy habits.
Stop Blaming Your Taste Buds
Food isn't the enemy; it isn't your friend either. It is fuel. The habits you have developed over time and the things that trigger you to eat unhealthy foods in amounts that your body cannot use are the reason for your size. You must change your relationship to food and exercise for the long run to make changes that will stick and keep you from gaining back any losses you may encounter.
Diets will never work as long as you continue to ignore your motivations when you eat. How you think and feel about food will be the way to unlock the secrets of staying at your ideal weight.
It Really IS All in Your Mind
Everything in your life is a product of how you perceive and react to the things and people around you. You cannot ignore the inﬂuence your mind has over you or your eating habits.
There is no reason to expect that part of your mind to be silenced by just choosing to eat different foods. The triggers that have always driven you to food are not going away without your taking time to acknowledge them and deal with them and your fat will return if they are not addressed.
The information I have to share is not new, it has been available all along, much like Dorothy's ruby slippers, and it is the way to where you want to be. You may have even heard it before but knowing about it and implementing it in your life are two very different things.
If you stay with me and commit to truly changing your life and creating healthy habits you will ﬁnd that you can retrain yourself to have a mindset of excellence and control. You will change your life through taking responsibility for and control of your experiences and responses. Learn the things that drive you to food and answer them in a new way. You can have the life you have always dreamed of, not just your ﬁtness level but every single aspect of your life will be improved by learning to recognize the times when you let the outcome of your actions and decisions be the motivating force behind what you do instead of making those decisions based on the outcome you desire.
