How to overcome the 12 mental blocks that can sabotage diets

Have you ever wondered why it is so difficult to lose weight?

Or why is it so hard to stay away when you are losing a lot of weight?

After all, you probably know what to eat to maintain a healthy diet. You don't need to be told again that sugar is bad for you and you should fill yourself up with vegetables.

And you know you need to exercise more too. You might even be quite motivated to hit the gym or spend time on the treadmill. The will is there.

And yet, despite all this knowledge …….

Weight loss is still an ongoing struggle.

It's not just about appetite either. In fact, 70% of people eat even when they are not hungry.

The key question is why?

It's in your head, not in your stomach

The truth is that there is one big factor in losing weight that most of the time is not recognized.

It's what's going on in your head.

Until they are examined and treated, you will find it difficult to reach and maintain your ideal weight – no matter how good your eating plan is and how attractive your gym membership is.

The 12 possible stumbling blocks

Each person's mental blocks preventing them from losing weight are different. However, there are 12 categories of blocks that are very common individually or in combination. You can identify strongly with one or more of them.

1. Sexual blocks: Often times, you fail to realize that challenges with or lack of intimacy are at the root of many weight problems. In your life, you may have a partner who is not interested in sex or is selfish in bed.

You may have grown up with taboo sex or you didn't talk about it. Any such reality can be one of the mental blocks that keep you from losing weight.

2. Out of contact with your body: If you've never been thin and weigh more than twice your ideal weight, you may have lost touch with your body and just don't know how serious the problem is.

Maybe you haven't really looked down at pictures of yourself from your neck down lately. Perhaps you've stopped taking care of yourself – and you actually take better care of your car or home than your own body …

3. Negative associations with thinness: You may associate thinness with illness or weakness, possibly through firsthand experience with someone close to you who was thin for these reasons.

4. Conditioning: When you overeat, there are likely certain triggers that make you want to eat. For example, consider whether you associate eating with boredom and therefore eat whenever you are bored.

5. Luck: You can be unhappy because of your weight. But to be happy you have to love yourself.

Happiness can only come from within, from a sense of pride and accomplishment for having achieved your goals through hard work. If you don't feel this, weight can be difficult to lose.

6. Secondary profits: You may be suffering from an emotional problem and using weight gain to gain attention or to make up for a lack of assertiveness, for example.

7. Imitation: If you lack confidence and self-esteem, you may try to compensate for those shortcomings by modeling yourself after someone you admire.

If you are overweight you may unconsciously want to look like what you look like … and be afraid to deviate from your example.

8. Self-punishment: Self-punishment is a serious block. Not only can it lead to obesity, but it can also poison a lifetime. If something has caused you to feel guilty, you can punish yourself by overeating and making yourself unhealthy.

9. Emotional shock: If you had emotional shock earlier in your life, and coped with it in part through overeating, you are likely to react the same way when you experience emotional shock.

10.Response: The response is to reject what we feel compelled to do and then do the exact opposite to prove to ourselves that we are completely independent and able to take care of ourselves.

If you've had a parent harassing you about your weight, you can overeat to refuse like you were forced to diet as a child.

11.Fear of failure: You may not be able to lose weight because you are afraid of making a mistake that would weaken your already bad self-image, so you never get started.

12.Fear of success: When your self-image is that of failure, you may find yourself unable to succeed and face the responsibilities associated with success.

Your self-image is key to your diet

Our actions are always determined by our self-image. We are what we think we are.

Most of the time, your diet is a self-fulfilling prophecy: if you believe that you cannot lose weight because all of your previous diets have failed, you will be convinced from the start that if you start a new diet, you will be unsuccessful. You will inevitably fail no matter how good your intentions are.

But at the end of the tunnel, despite all the mental blocks on the way, a light shines. You can change your own self-image.

How?

This is how you determine which mental blocks belong to you

Most people are unaware of their respective mental blocks that are preventing them from losing weight – so they can never deal with them.

This doesn't have to be the case for you.

Through careful analysis, it is possible to identify your blocks.

This analysis begins with the assessment of mental weight. Your mental weight is the measure of all the factors that are going on in your head that motivate you to eat. Each person has their own inner voice that explains why you overeat.

Indeed, mental weight is the weight you are sure to achieve if you stick to your current eating habits and behaviors. For example, let's say you weigh 13 stones on the scales, but when you measure your existing behavior and attitudes towards food, your Mental Weight Score is 18.

That means you will almost certainly hit 18 stones if you do not understand your personal pyscho behavioral factors and handle them properly.

Mental weight may seem immaterial, but we have a proven scientific way of measuring it.

By measuring your mental weight, you can assess and change the habits, attitudes, and behaviors that are responsible for your weight gain.

Our goal is to identify and reduce your mental weight so that it is your ideal weight. And get you to achieve and maintain both.
