It’s a sad fact that obesity has become a major health threat in the U.S. and now worldwide. The vast majority of those on a weight-loss diet today will fail. The Worst part is virtually 100% of the people who fail won’t know the REAL reason for their failure. Many will blame the diet they chose, the circumstances in their life, their “lack of willpower,” and on and on. But the REAL reason — the ONLY reason — they won’t succeed is because they didn’t change their thoughts. Their thoughts about themselves and the food they eat.
If you’re trying to change your eating habits for the better, and improve your diet to get healthy, lose weight, or just maintain the weight you’re at now, one thing is for sure: You need a can-do attitude. Visualize a picture of yourself as healthy as you want to be, and at a weight, you are comfortable with, and then believe in that picture, hold on to it, and use it for motivation.
The more you practice thinking positively about following a healthful diet, the sooner you’ll adopt a more positive attitude toward food. And as a result, your relationship with food will improve immensely.
