Think: Use Your Mind to Shrink Your Waistline is written by David Meine, a certified hypnotherapist who specializes in weight loss.
He explains how to harness the power of your mind and thoughts for losing weight and creating your ideal body.
This book discusses the importance of the subconscious and the science of the brain, and outlines practical techniques for achieving your goals.
It is important for you to identify the ten negative behaviors or habits that could be holding you back. Think lists them as follows:
Meine says that most people typically struggle with five or more of these behaviors.
The first step to permanent change is to recognize, which of these are currently manifesting in a negative pattern in your life.
In Think, you will learn how to let go of your negative behaviors at the deepest levels of your subconscious mind with motivational hypnosis.
Motivational Hypnosis is a positive method of creating change, using visualization, repetition and suggestion. It can help you adopt new positive habits both consciously and at subconscious automatic levels.
To lose weight and improve your health you need to change not just what you eat but also how you eat. Most people need to let go of automatic and culturally-ingrained eating habits that are blocking their ability to follow a healthy diet.
By adopting three positive eating habits you will not only improve how you eat, but will also effortlessly improve the quality of your food choices.
1. Eat Five Times a Day
2. Eat More Slowly
3. Eat Until Satisfied, Not Full
Think teaches that you need to train your subconscious to make good choices that will move you closer toward your desired goal. This is where motivational hypnosis is recommended.
Hypnosis can make it easy to adopt the three positive eating behaviors automatically. It also helps you prepare for potential negative situations so that you are ready with effective strategies when they arise.
When your goals are firmly planted in your mind healthy eating becomes like a natural reflex. Challenges and excuses that previously blocked your progress will simply fall away.
Physical activity provides a range of positive benefits. It helps with stress management, is a natural mood booster and increases the production of your body’s “feel-good” hormones. Exercise also improves your mental outlook so that you stay optimistic and motivated.
Think encourages dieters to follow a regular exercise routine that you can enjoy as you create and maintain your ideal physique.
Finding activities that you love to do is the key to burning the maximum amount of calories for losing weight.
