I’ve been on a diet for two weeks and all I’ve lost is fourteen days. ~Totie Fields
Most diets fail because weight loss goes well beyond the numbers on the scale! We are creatures of habit and since we eat many times a day, our eating habits are firmly engrained in our behavior patterns! Willpower is not sufficient because motivation wanes. There is only so long we can fight against human nature before we snap back into our old bad habits.
Eating habits tie into some of the deepest workings of our minds. In order to make lasting positive changes, you need to recondition your mind and your perceptions. This must be done at the right pace that will ensure lasting changes and results.
