Weight loss, fighting the emotional mind is fighting a losing battle

Frustration can be described as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. People attending conventional weight loss programmes are eternal optimists, no matter how often they fail, they still believe they can succeed using methods that failed in the past.

It is time to get real about weight loss. We fail due to the resistance we hold to our goal. People are not aware of the resistance because it is hidden in the subconscious mind. You can logically want a slimmer body, but your emotional mind may see food as your only or best means of rewarding yourself and escaping from negative feelings.

Resistance is what is pulling you in the opposite direction from where you logically want to go. People believe that by putting more energy and motivation into the goal of winning they will overpower the part that is in resistance. The problem is that by pulling against what you resist you are adding energy to it, what you resist persists. This explains why, after being successful in losing weight on a weight loss programme, you finally cave in and return to your old relationship with food.

There is a reason that an aspect of you is pulling against what you want, it actually believes that is in your best interests. You must remember that your subconscious is never doing anything against you, it is doing things for you. The problem is that the goals of the emotional mind may be in total conflict with your logical goals of being slim and living in a healthy body.

Unless you address the conflict between your emotional and logical needs, you are doomed to fail. Your emotional responses will overpower your logical mind, it is only a matter of time before you cave in to the might of your emotional mind.

The solution to the problem is to use trance to gain direct access to your emotional mind. You can then execute profound change and align your emotional needs with the goal of becoming a healthy eater. Hypnotherapy can help you achieve this transformation.
