Top Weight Loss Techniques You Might Not Have Tried

For some people, losing weight is a constant battle. It’s all too easy to succumb to temptation, lose motivation or simply not know the right way to go about your weight loss. Surveys suggest that approximately 8 out of 10 diets fail – it doesn’t make for encouraging reading! Nevertheless there are techniques out there that you might not have tried, techniques which don’t rely on fad diets or crazy exercises. Losing weight is largely psychological and sometimes a fresh approach can give you the boost you need.

The power of the mind

The strength of your mind set towards weight loss should not be overlooked. Are you one of those people who start off with good intentions which eventually fall by the wayside? Do you find it difficult to ‘stay on the wagon’? Sometimes it isn’t enough just to want to lose weight. You have to have the strength to put those feelings into action.

If you are a spiritual person, one technique which you might not have considered is to have a psychic reading. Spiritual healers are trained in helping you to organise your thoughts and see a more positive outlook for the future. A psychic reader can make you understand the power of your mind when it comes to weight loss and give you the inspiration to put your thoughts into practice.

The power of suggestion

Hypnosis is a treatment which has grown in popularity in recent years, particularly thanks to celebrity endorsement. Hypnosis can be used to treat a variety of things, including addiction to cigarettes, sleep deprivation and, of course, weight loss.

The treatment works by targeting the unconscious mind to create a new positive outlook towards healthy eating habits. Hypnosis aims to not only change the way you think about food, but also the way you think about your body. Having positive thoughts about your appearance will help you to move forward in your health and fitness goals.

Doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results

Albert Einstein once said that the definition of insanity is ‘doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results’. Does this sound like you? It’s all too easy to fall into a rut when it comes to healthy eating habits. Perhaps you think you’re eating the right types of foods but in actual fact they’re loaded with salt or sugar. Maybe your gym workouts are half-hearted and don’t give you maximum benefits.

Another thing which afflicts a lot of people is ‘secret eating’. Quite often you can consume calories without even realising it for example through snacking or sugary drinks. It’s a good idea to start keeping a food diary so you can really keep track of where the calories are coming from. You might find it quite eye opening!

When it comes to losing weight, the main thing is not to feel disheartened. Think about how long it took you to put the weight on in the first place – you can’t expect it to simply fall off at the drop of a hat. Don’t think about healthy eating as a short-term fix, but more of a long-term lifestyle change. Once you start feeling the positive benefits you’re likely to want to continue in your new balanced lifestyle!

  1. Still another amazing piece! May I share a fantastic tip for weight loss: You should steer clear of the notion that you are on a “diet”. It is fine to be honest about monitoring your intake, but committing yourself to the world of “dieting” may conjure feelings of deprivation.

  2. This is pretty mind blowing, no pun intended. Any weight loss method can be rather tedious and would need a lot of willpower to see it through till the end, so it’s no surprise that mind power is a factor.

  3. The power of the mind does do a lot of tricks even on the physical aspects of our body. And though it may not seem directly affecting, it does suggest reactions to our body which leads to us having greater strength and even adjust our metabolism and weight losing capabilities.

    And this are all true, besides the usual mind set of having a diet.
