Losing weight is an issue that many people on this planet are facing, and part of the reason we are still facing it is because we believe what we ingest makes us gain weight.
You heard me! The food you eat does not make you gain weight, it’s how you see it.
A little more on this later, but let me first tell you the second reason why people gain weight, especially women: to protect themselves from unwanted advances.
Somehow we believe that if we look less atractive, we won’t be victims to possible rape (it’s also a past life issue), advances we don’t know how to turn down, etc.
A third reason is we equate the pleasure we get from eating to the pleasure and excitement we would love to get elsewhere.
A good way to get over this is to journal what trully gives you excitement in life (aside from food) and start implementing those actions in your day to day life.
So whenever you want to eat excessively, you have your list of things that give you MORE pleasure than eating. Once you do those, you will see the hunger disappears.
So, as I promised I’m going to now talk about the first reason people gain weight, and that is believing their food makes them gain.
A guy I know once told his audience that “you can basically ingest a gallon of toxic waste and still be perfectly healthy, if your mind believes it”, reason being everything is devoid of meaning, including a gallon of toxic waste, and it only takes on the meaning that we assign to it.
This quote resonated deeply within me, since it is something I intuitively believed my entire life. Our mind creates the reality we perceive, and we can change that reality by what we believe about it
Therefore at some point in my journey I started repeating to myself “food makes you lose weight” and repeated with every single food that I believed would make me gain like bread, pastry, etc, that it makes me lose weight.
Plus, I repeated to myself inspite even nasty comments from other People that “I am slim” and inspite my own beliefs and thoughts that said otherwise.
Now I must admit, I haven’t spent A LOT of time doing this, so the results are for now me not gaining weight even though I eat a lot, but that’s good enough. From the way I am currently eating, I should be probably around 200 pounds when in reality I weigh much less.
There are also great ways to lose weight like listening to subliminals and affirmations over night repeatedly, for long periods of time (minimum 30 days)
Two of my favorite YouTube subliminal/affirmation creators are Dylan James (affirmations) and Serenity Now Mindful Meditation (subliminals). For subliminals, I also like and use Beauty Krystallized.
