Are your thoughts holding you back from crushing your weight loss goals?💭🧐
90% of weight loss is psychology. And self-sabotage lies at the heart of weight loss psychology. It’s the “two steps forward, two steps backwards” dance that keeps our weight stuck.
Here are 5 tips to lose weight without diet and exercise, and find a healthy relationship with food in the process.
➡️ Food makes you happy. This poses as a psychological block to weight loss when food is your only joy. Learn to reward yourself without food. Try a bubble bath, take yourself shopping, or start a gratitude journal to bring more joy into your life without food.
➡️ You’re stressing about food or your weight. Stress makes you gain weight, not lose it. Stress is a huge psychological block to weight loss. It’s one of the reasons why restricting your diet causes you to gain weight in the long run. Stop trying so hard and make choices that you feel good about.
➡️ You’re restricting your diet. And for every restriction, there is an equal and opposite binge. Give up saying no to certain food groups. Food restriction blocks weight loss in the long run. We end up eating more, often at night. If you want to eat something “unhealthy” plan out your portion before hand and have a plan for your next meal so you are able to stay in control.
➡️ You weigh yourself too often - and it’s messing with your head. Say goodbye to the scale and the emotional roller coaster of weighing yourself.
➡️ You hate wasting food. Find a solution for the extra food that makes you comfortable. Plan to give it away or learn to forgive yourself by choosing to honor your body and throw extra food way.
As you can see, the triggers for weight gain and compulsive eating have almost nothing to do with food. 🍽
Once you address your psychological blocks to weight loss you will lose weight without diet and exercise, and finally be able to keep it off for good. 🥳
