A Healthy Diet Check Up…From The Neck Up

If you’ve tried every supposedly healthy diet plan on the planet and workout program from the latest fitness guru and repeatedly failed to hit your weight loss goals, you probably need a “ healthy nutritional check … off the neck. ” “

There is no such thing as a healthy, fast weight loss diet plan. Successful weight loss doesn’t just happen. It took more than a few days to get to the point where you are now. Give yourself a break and expect it to take a while before you see measurable results. Take a leap of faith and follow some basics in your diet plan.

Start with your “self-talk”. This is the conversation that goes through your brain continuously. What kind of conversation are you having with your self-talk? What kind of negative self-talk prevented you from achieving your weight loss goals in the past?

Would you change the dialogue if you had a chance to do it again? That’s a no-brainer, isn’t it? Well, the good news is that you can turn the tide of negative self-talk that is starting now. It’s never too late to start, and you start reprogramming your self talk and starting a whole new weight loss diet plan.

A good starting point is to start with positive affirmations. Positive affirmations, spoken aloud with authority and conviction, positively influence your attitude, direct your thinking, and lead to a course of action that will help you become the person you want to be and have the things you want to have.

Start writing your weight loss affirmations on paper. You can start with something like, “I want to lose 25 pounds for Christmas.”

<p value="<amp-fit-text layout="fixed-height" min-font-size="6" max-font-size="72" height="80">That's a worthy goal and achievable, but we need to do some work to structure the affirmation. First of all, 'I want' gives the impression that what you want is always in the future. To reprogram your self talk, you need to trick your mind into believing that you are already having weight loss success. This is how your subconscious mind functions. Your subconscious mind has no capacity to understand the concept of time. Everything is in the moment … here and now. When you tell your subconscious mind that you "want," that's exactly what you're getting … want. without ever attaining fulfillment.

Unless you change your mental tape recorder, you will achieve exactly what you tell your subconscious mind, which is that you want to “lose 25 pounds.” You will want to “lose 25 pounds” for the rest of your days unless you change your self-talk. If your weight is 150 pounds and you wish to weigh 125 pounds, then you must be 125 pounds from the time you make the decision to change your self-talk. What if you write your affirmation to read something like this, “I am healthy and fit and weigh 125 pounds.” It is extremely important that your affirmation is crystal clear because what you affirm is exactly what your subconscious mind will bring you.

You don’t have to limit yourself to one confirmation either. Write down one more that fits your new exercise program. “I’m enjoying my healthy new diet,” or, “I like the healthy foods I eat.” Write and rewrite until you are absolutely sure that you have your weight loss goals written down “in the here and now” AND represent exactly what you want. Only then do you start to speak it out loud, several times a day. Remember to use the present tense. “I recognize performance in all of my weight loss goals.” “I have the skill and talent to practice every day.” “I am a winner.” “I am grateful for all my accomplishments, however small.” At first, you feel awkward and uncomfortable and may not feel or believe what you say. It doesn’t matter, keep speaking them out loud with as much conviction as possible.

It took a long time to train your subconscious mind to use negative self-talk. If you persist in speaking your affirmations aloud, boldly, and confidently, you will be amazed at how quickly you can change your thoughts. You didn’t jump on a bike the first time and just drove down the street. It took practice to train your body to balance on those two wheels. This will also take some practice. Keep repeating your affirmations out loud several times a day for the next 30 days and you will be amazed at how much you change your thinking and attitude. Above all, take action. Do nothing and nothing will be done. Do something and many things will be set in motion. No matter what you do in life, you have to take action. Do something every day to start your plan.
