NLP and Weight Loss

  1. Aug 8, 2006 #1
    NLP and weight control have more to do with the way you think about food than food itself.
    The NLP Weight Control Program has three fundamental keys that make it work.
    The first being realigning your attitude about yourself first, your self image and your inner voice.
    The second is rethinking the thought processes which cause you to over- eat, or binge, in the first place.
    The third key factor is installing behaviors conducive to a healthy life style.
    Can anyone add the "how to do that" to this information? RST

    Self discipline and the desire to lose weight.

    Without those two, it's not going to happen.

    Bottom line you need to consume fewer calories than you burn.

    Exercise comes first. Then change your diet to a low-fat or no-fat diet. Then exercise more and more and eat lots of low-fat stuff. Keep track of your weight and waist measurement every day. You will lose fat and get into shape, which makes it easier to keep the weight off and stay in shape. It's a positive feedback situation.

    Lose the realigning your inner self and thought processes and fad diets. Find high-cardio exercises that you enjoy so you can do them every day, and start reading the labels on what you eat.
