How to Lose Weight Fast by Changing What Food You Crave for: The 5 Step Mental Method


Visitors: 242

Discover the secret to lose weight fast by redirecting your craving for food that makes you crazy or food that you can't resist. Today, if you are given the opportunity to pick your favourite food, what would they be? Well, let me guess - most likely it will be pizza, chocolate, snacks and etc. It will be mostly unhealthy food. Am I guessing it right?

Your mind has not been conditioned to think about healthy food. Instead, you follow your instinct and most likely you will think about unhealthy food most of the time. You can now change that condition. Instead of thinking about snacks, ice cream, you can pre-conditioned your mind to think about healthy food i. e. apples, oranges, watermelon and etc. This is really possible and if you follow through this article, you will know how to do it in no time.

When I start to survey people's eating habits, I gathered information about what these people are eating, the frequency they eat and how do they normally eat. You will be surprise at how some people eat. Having breakfast in the car; taking a quick bite while walking to office; silently having breakfast on subway. Yes! These are all some of the methods that people eat. May be you have something else and I would love to hear about it.

Form the surveys, I found the main contributing factors to people's overweight problem are: taking snack food, having unhealthy food or they just over-eat. When I asked these people if they like healthy food i. e. fruits and vegetable, none of them hated it. Ask them further if they take these healthy foods frequently, most of them will tell say no. They will engage more in unhealthy food, instead of the healthy food.

After I have collected all my data, I will normally ask these people to come back to my office for a close door session. On course, firstly I will have to convince them to come to my office for consultation if they are really serious about losing weight.

When they are in the office, I would ask them to sit on a comfortable recliner and have their eyes closed. Within minutes these people will feel relax and I would then redirect their mind to a peaceful place. After that, I will tell them about the benefits of eating healthy food i. e. fruits and vegetables and ask them to imagine taking a sip of their favourite fruit juice. I will then say to their mind, “from now onwards, whenever you think about any unhealthy food, any cravings for this food, start to think about your favourite juice or fruits. "

After the session, most of these people will have their craving change from snacks or unhealthy food to healthy food. Why is this happening? Basically what I did is to tell them subconsciously to change their cravings. Never underestimate the power of your subconscious! Your subconscious plays a major role in helping you to make decision. When you change your subconscious or your thoughts, then your body will follow by taking action. This is really as simple as that. Don't make it complicated.

Let's look at this from another perspective. If I were to give you your favourite juice, let's say orange juice. Would you take it? Of course you would. Next I take out chocolate from the fridge and offer you together with another cup of your favourite orange juice and ask you to choose one? Which one would you choose? Most likely you will choose the orange juice as you have just tasted how good it was. The point I am trying to make here is that, your craving for healthy food is no less than the unhealthy food. You'll enjoy the healthy food as mush as your snacks. Think about that!

Remember the close-door session I have with the people and change their cravings from unhealthy food to healthy food? We will look at here through the following 5 minutes mental exercise.

Step 1: Get yourself a comfortable place, away from the distractions where you can be alone for at least 15 minutes. Take a deep breath and start to feel relax. After that, count from 10 to 1. With every count just begin to get more and more relax and let your mind drift deeper and deeper.

Step 2: When you have finished counting from 10 to 1, imagine that you are at a peaceful and quiet place - best will be the favourite place. It can be a beautiful garden, or a log in the woods. Any place that will make you relax and peaceful.

Step 3: Now imagine having your favourite freshly picked fruit right in front of you. You can see it, feel the freshness and touch how good it is. Then you take a bite, yummy, and it tastes really good.

Step 4: Then repeat the following for at least 10 times: “From today onwards, whenever I think of eating, I will think about my favourite fruit. No more will I think about the unhealthy food (best if you can mention these unhealthy food as you will be programming your mind on specific food that you shouldn't take)

Step 5: Slowly count from 1 to 5. Then take a deep breath and slowly open your eyes.

Congratulations! You have just shifted your cravings for junk food to healthy craving - fruits. With that mental shift, you'll be able to lose weight fast.
