Let me ask you something..
Do any of the following statements describe you?
You are not alone; Millions of people accross the planet spend their lives focussing on losing weight, experiencing a little success and then slipping right back to where they started. Does that describe you too?
I bet that you are probably totally fed up with how you look and feel. Whatever you have tried so far has not worked! Its time to look seriously at what you have been trying so far.
I don't work with weight loss any more, but when I did, I didn't focus on weight loss, instead I focussed on....
In order for you to lose your weight and stay thin, I strongly recommend you find a therapist who can address the above issues in conjunction with helping you get your needs appropriately met. This is a much more effective way of dealing with the real reaons you overeat.
Consider the following questions
There are enough books and web sites that offer copious hints and tips, diets and routines to lose weight, so I am certainly not going to re-invent the wheel here. Instead I ask you to consider the following questions in the context of your life. If you struggle to recall the last time you did any of these, then they may start to help to build a picture of why you tend to eat unnecessarily
When was the last time
If you do nothing more, I urge you to sit down and think about these in the context of your own life. It can be helpful to keep a log of the details from the last two bullet points for 7-10 days to really help you understand these in more detail. You can then identify ways to change where they need to be made. When you have identified the patterns that pertain to you, then find a therapist who can help you change it for the better.
I can highly recommend buying and reading this book to help you understand more about why you crave food when your blood sugars (energy levels) are low. You only need to read the first 40 pages to get a good understanding of how important this concept is to getting control of your health and weight. Don’t be put off by the title, it is NOT a diet. You can pick it up pretty cheaply on Amazon market place.
I strongly recommend that you find yourself a therapist who works from a Human Givens Approach and deal with your issue for good.
I work with clients from across the UK.
