Losing Weight, For Good

Losing weight is not that hard. Most of us are able to do it, and do it often. The problem is that usually, that weight comes back.

The reason behind this is because we change our lifestyle to lose weight, but when we do lose it, we go straight back to living like we did when we were fat, and we gain all the weight back, with worst interest than one offered from a loanshark.

None of these work long term

So, we have all these bright ideas on how to lose weight, from eat only carbs to don't eat carbs, from eat a breakfast every day to never eat a breakfast, from eat multiple small meals per day to eat only once a day.

Man, where do these "experts" get off? Yeah, you will lose weight, of course. You will because it all works short term. But, if you stopped eating carbs or ate only carbs for a year, I imagine you would be sick.

The solution is...
The solution to losing weight forever is fairly simple, yet most people don't do it for one reason or another.

Basically, all you need to lose weight is to eat less, but still a moderate amount of healthy food, and workout more.

After you lose weight, keep doing what you were doing to lose it! Common sense, right?
All the help you need

You really just need to stick to a natural, healthy program. Eat quality foods, eat enough but not too much, take a walk each day or hit the gym, that's it.

But, in order to stay motivated you may benefit from outside help. You can use your spouse or friends to nudge you in the right direction when you need it, or undergo hypnosis or use the power of positive affirmations.

All of that helps you stay mentally strong and focused, so you don't slip up. Once you do, it is way too easy to go back to the old lifestyle that you "ran" away from in the first place.
I love to use hypnosis to help keep me motivated. It is a natural way of aligning my subconscious thoughts with my conscious desires. And, it presents a great way to relax, too.

What hypnosis does is help me relax and enter a "hypnotic" state, which basically means that I am completely relaxed and focused.

Then, it would offer me suggestions which I would accept much more easily than if I was tense and nervous. And that's it.

No matter what help you use to stay consistent with your goal, I advise you to take a natural approach and alter your lifestyle slightly so the weight loss becomes permanent.
