Yo-Yo Dieting? ~ Cambridge Hyponotherapy’s answer
SO what is it about the Yo-yo effect of dieting?
Why do so many people go on a diet and crash only to find they become heavier than they started and more saddened and unmotivated?
Why do some people fall off the healthy eating and exercise regime and never get to their weight and shape they dream of and long for?
There’s probably one answer to all those at the heart, with a few side issues tagged along.
When we set our new weight goal how many know that the new you will be a different person than the old in so many ways?
Very few is the answer. They seem to think when we reach the goal we can live like we did before. Some even think they can live like they did before during this transition.
Guess what? It will never happen!
The old adage of ‘do what you did before = get what you got before’ is there for a reason.
SO how can we make this change with ease?
Firstly if we understand we will be a different person then we need to let go of the underlying beliefs towards food and exercise that have underpinned the old you, when you do this the changes become exciting and natural and not ‘a regime’ or a hardship or a sacrifice.
Yes we know that this to the conscious and intellectual way of thinking makes complete sense, doing this without knowing how is almost impossible. That’s where someone like us comes in to play, because we do this part for a living ~ it’s second nature to us, it’s what we’re trained to do.
You don’t need fad diets, fad hypno bandy thingies (we’ve written about those before!) simply letting go of negative beliefs and old emotional attachments to food etc with a little tweak to our motivation strategy and away you go.
If for those who need company or assistance after that then you may consider:
A personal trainer to start you off gradually where you will see and feel quick improvements
A nutritionist to help you prepare your healthy eating life
