Ok, so the cliffhanger from my last blog maybe wasn’t all that exciting, but here it is. The answer to the question: how? How do you bring all that knowledge about living healthy in practice? I’ve read more books about healthy food, losing weight and living a long life then fit my rather spacy book case. And still, most of the time I can’t manage to follow up on all this good advice.
Your thoughts matter
Judith, the author of The Beck Diet Solution thinks it all starts with the way you think. If you’re not successful in your attempts, you need to change this. Although that sounds sensible, it’s not easy. But, with a bit of practice, it is doable, she says.
The most important thing to change, are your limiting beliefs. Tony Robbins also mentions them, saying you should figure out what they are and turning them around. Because we are masters in telling ourselves the craziest things. A personal favorite: “why can other people eat whatever they want, without getting fat?” Fat BS of course. Sure, there might be some exceptions, but most people that eat what I eat, gain weight too. Ouch. A bit painful to admit, but true. Better to face it then to keep feeling sorry for myself. Better to realize that my actions have consequences.
What to do
So, you want to lose weight? Then you need to change your eating habits. In the next few blogs, I’ll talk about some more of these limiting beliefs. At least my eyes have been opened: I wasn’t dealt a worse card then others, I’m just fooling myself. Or at least I was!
