When it comes to weight loss,the equation is pretty simple:the calorie going out has to be greater than the calorie coming in.
We all know that. However, the problem is in execution—in making it happen. From creating healthy diet plans to convincing yourself every morning to go for a run, it can be quite difficult to follow a weight loss regimen.
This is where NLP comes into play.Here are some ways NLP can help you lose weight:
The Future Pace Technique
A very useful NLP technique, this technique involves imagining yourself after having completed your goal of losing weight. What will it be like? How will you be feeling? What will you be seeing and hearing at that moment?
Answering these questions will keep you motivated towards your goal.
Stepping Inside the Shoes of Someone You Love
This is also an effective technique. The person is asked to step inside a loved one’s shoes and asked to imagine the self from their perspective.
What do you see? What do you hope you would see? What is this person saying to you? Thinking this way, you become mindful of your loved one’s thoughts.
Figuring Out the Triggers in Your Environment
What happens in a person’s life has a role to play in weight gain. It is very important that you look for triggers that prompt you to eat more. It can be work stress or it can be an occurrence of an unfortunate event, such as the death of a loved one.
Whatever it is, make sure you find it out and look for healthy ways to deal with it.
Picking a Role Model
Whether it is a friend who has lost some pounds quickly or a celebrity you adore, have a role model to look up to.
This will keep you focused and on the right track.You will have a sort of encouragement – if they have done it, you can do it too.
Thinking About How It Will Affect Your Life
Surely,you want to lose weight because it is affecting your life in negative ways. On the other hand, when you do lose weight, there will be some healthy and positive changes.
From good physiological results to increase in self-esteem, think about all the amazing life changes that weight loss will bring about. This will help in keeping you motivated towards the goal.
