Way Of Life

Living as a fit person is a way of life, this mindset must become second nature to you. The millions of people in the world that struggle with their weight use food not only for nutrition… they also use it as an emotional support system. In order to change our mindset towards a fit and healthy mindset we must...

  • Think long term fit, think long term healthy. Really think about that piece of cake, candy bar or donut before you eat them. Focus on the real consequences, rather than the temporary satisfactions of eating them.
  • Here’s a really neat trick I came up with. If you want to know what that piece of cake tastes like, then go ahead and take a bite… taste it, now that you have satisfied your curiosity… spit it out. Job accomplished, by doing this you won’t suffer the consequences of actually consuming the cake. Genius I thought to myself!
  • When you’re tempted to eat something you don’t need, visualize how you and your stomach is going to feel after you consume the evil weight increasing food that you are thinking of.
  • Keep practicing these methods until they become second nature to you.
  • Always pat yourself on the back and give yourself credit for what you have accomplished. You are GREAT… never forget that important nugget of information.

Surround With Likeness

Surround yourself with the people that you would like to become. By doing this, you will start to emulate the successful things that they do. Remember… learn from only the best to be your best. This is one of my favorite weight loss motivation quotes.

You will understand your weight loss journey better when you understand the emotional triggers that might throw you into a weight gain mode. Some of these emotional triggers might be…
