A group of independent scientists reveal the shocking truth about your body fat: there's an 80% chance you'll NEVER get rid of it.
We will begin by levelling the playing field. You need to understand what you're actually up against, even before trying to change anything.
- I will demonstrate to you, that your taste buds were actually programmed to signal you when to stop eating. You will also understand how modern cuisine is intentionally blocking that natural mechanism.
- You will learn why eating large volumes of food is a much more natural behavior for human beings than what you've been told - you will understand that portion control is actually a part of the problem - and NOT the solution.
- Some clues indicate that the most feared yo-yo effect of dieting was probably a completely natural part of our lives in the past, which blows the concept of optimal body weight out of the water.
- Greater social acceptance of our bad eating habits is probably the number one reason that enabled unhealthy foods to do more damage to humanity than all of the other addictive substances combined.
- The constant (over)abundance of food with as up to 6 regular daily meals, could actually be standing in the way of our natural healing abilities. I really wish science could provide a more definite proof of this.
- Food has become so integrated in our lives and our society, that it makes it virtually impossible for us to avoid the temptations. Even if we could pull it off, this is not how any of us would want to live our lives.
- We will also take a closer look at why is it so incredibly hard to maintain weight for some people, while for others it comes almost naturally, without them having to put in much effort.
- Our tendency to eat more food than we'd like, unfortunately can't be treated like most other substance or behavior addictions, because of one huge difference.
Learning how to do things right, must begin with learning how not to do things wrong, or the extra luggage will only keep dragging you down.
- Nobody really wants to hear this, but trying to eat the forbidden stuff in moderation is actually the hardest way of trying to take control over your eating habits from a psychological perspective.
- Most people don’t realize, that a "certified fitness instructor" or a "registered dietitian" is most probably a weight loss expert, who doesn't even begin to understand the psychology of our eating habits.
- Relying on willpower and self-discipline to stay away from the forbidden fruit can lead to the so-called "elephant chain syndrome". Instead of exercising your willpower muscle, your are far more likely weakening it.
- Were there any events in your personal past, that could have caused you to develop the bad eating habits you are struggling with today? We all learned to associate tasty food with pleasure at some point, now what?
- Trying to set some future date to finally start turning things around, or food-proofing your fridge and your house, are only some of the desperate attempts that ignore the actual underlying issues.
- What are the psychological reasons behind the fact, that even our own health and well-being is such a poor motivation to start turning things around. In some cases, even the death threats don't work.
- Most people believe they tend to eat too much because of their insatiable hunger, when in fact they are satisfying an entirely different need. What is the actual need that drives so many of us to overfeed?
- People are notoriously bad at setting up their weight loss goals correctly. They usually remain completely unaware, that the kind of goals they set for themselves, can actually mean the difference between success and failure.
- What can our own bodies tell us about how we should be eating? Is it actually possible to better tune in to our instincts, so we can start eating only what we really need to eat?
