The One Word That Leads To Weight Loss

Monday, September 10, 2012

It's Not 'no'. It's 'want', as in "I really don't want that order of fettuccine Alfredo." How does this approach work? Dieters typically think, "I can't have that". This makes them feel deprived, according to a new study in the Journal of Consumer Research, If you think instead, I don't want it, you'll cultivate a sense of increased self-control that will give you the psychological edge to resist when temptation strikes.
Thanks Prevention magazine. I will try that!!

    I agree with this.

Another thing that I say when I'm tempted by a certain food is "I don't eat that." It makes me feel STRONG!

    Thinking "thin" helps. You can visualize "thin". You can do it.

    I think it does work...I use the thoughts I can have what ever I really want, but how well does it fit in to my new healthy life it can mean picking something else or sharing the meal or bringing home half of it for another meal.....

good approach though to help us get what we want and not feel deprived
