This is stopping you from losing weight
We are creatures of habit. We wake up, hit the snooze button and then we go into auto-pilot... You have breakfast. You brush your teeth. You get dressed. You go to work. You come home. You go to bed. Then you do it all over again the next day.
Losing weight — all boils down to the same thing. Habits. We are creatures of habit. Now you can use habits to your advantage. Good habits help you get the things you want (and achieve the goals you have) quicker and easier. It can help you lose weight or… habits can make you fat. I need you to think long and hard about what I’m about to ask, and be brutally honest with yourself. What is your biggest weakness when it comes to your food?
Overeating at meal times
Going without food for hours and then binge eating
Snacking between meals
Getting bored late in the evening before raiding the kitchen
Opening the ice-cream and eating it ALL!
These are classic BAD eating habits. The problem is these are bad habits we do without thinking. We do them (almost) on auto-pilot. Then regret it afterwards. There are plenty more but if you can identify your biggest weakness you’re on a winner when it comes to losing weight. I used to be a terrible evening snacker. At night I’d raid and re-raid the fridge, freezer or the cupboards. I might start with having one cookie and finish the pack. I did it when I got bored in the evenings, watching TV or surfing the Internet. I didn’t need the food. I wasn’t hungry. It was just habit. When I realised and ended it (and of course I was exercising) my body changed.
Now here’s what you need to do. Think long and hard (and be honest). What is your weakness? What is your Achilles heel? Isolate it. Zone in on it. Then by either replacing it with a better habit or cutting it out completely – good things will start to happen. Like losing weight, seeing results, burning body fat and living a longer, healthier and leaner life. So today, that’s your task. Discover and zone in on that killer habit. It’ll be the start of a fantastic new you.
