Research has shown that an astounding 95% of diets fail, so it is no surprise that many people have been left feeling confused, terribly frustrated and disillusioned after attempting the latest fad diet.
Bodytrim, which focuses on the timing and type of food consumed along with gentle exercise like walking, has to date helped over 300,000 Australians transform their bodies and lives with scientifically proven fast and permanent weight loss. In fact, the average weight loss is 6kg in the first 7 days on the Bodytrim program.
After intense consumer research of over 100,000 Bodytrimmers, creator Geoff Jowett saw that while the Bodytrim system was incredibly effective for those who maintained it, some people were failing due to psychological issues like motivation or fear of change. So Jowett teamed up with Dr Natalie Green (B Sc Psy M.Rhb.Cns.D.Psy Clin), a clinical psychologist and rehabilitation counsellor specialising in weight loss and weight management to create the improved Bodytrim+ system that could help 100% of Australians reach their weight goals.
Here are Dr Natalie Green’s five steps to the right mindset for weight loss:
1. Think of weight loss as a lifestyle and not a diet as this automatically represents thoughts of deprivation. Also ensure you keep variety in meals/menu choices. If there is variety it is more likely to be sustainable and reduce boredom which leads to self sabotage.
2. Set clear and realistic goals. The Bodytrim system has established 4Ws of goal setting; What amount of weight do you want to lose? Where do you want to lose it from? Why do you want to lose weight? When do you want to do it by? The constant reviewing of your goals will help keep you on track. Goal setting and visualisation techniques are important because the mind is a powerful thing.
3. Record your progress by tracking your meals and exercise as this increases accountability to yourself and the goals you set, therefore increasing awareness and motivation.
4. Don’t beat yourself up! If you make a poor choice get straight back on track; don’t let a lapse become a collapse.
5. Recognise emotional eating and self sabotage and seek assistance through coaching or counseling to unveil the real core of the issue. If you get to the core early you can increase success rather than providing a bandaid approach to the symptoms.
