Successful Diets and Why Most Diets are Doomed to Failure
Is there a reason why some people go on successful diets while the majorities are doomed to failure? The reason most diets are doomed to failure at the outside could be because of a simple mistake. This simple mistake is made by millions of people worldwide; millions of people, who have no idea why they struggle, week after week, while others seem to do well and achieve their goals.
No doubt you've been there, we probably all have. I was one of those people who made this simple mistake, the mistake that stopped me from losing any significant, or meaningful, weight without a gargantuan struggle. It was not until I understood, really understood, the very literal way the subconscious mind, the part that runs our body, reacts to the way we think and speak, that I stopped making it.
If you've ever been on a successful diet in the past you somehow avoided making the mistake and that's why you succeeded. Then, if you put the weight back on again, and most people do, and you went back on the original successful diet, only to find it did not work this time, you made the simple mistake.
The Simple Mistake that Stops Successful Diets in their Tracks
So, what is the simple mistake made by millions of unsuspecting dieters? The simple mistake they make is, they 'go on a diet,' or, 'start a diet' and when they're going on a diet 'that's what they get,' a diet. ' What is a diet? Everyone who has ever been on a diet or on lots of diets knows what a diet is for them; this information is already downloaded into their subconscious mind.
For most people diets are hard, they combine deprivation, calorie counting and denial. When you go 'on a diet' you will get all that, and whatever else a diet means to you, and that may be all you'll get, because going on a diet is as foolish as going on a journey.
Imagine setting off in your car, 'on a journey,' without a destination? A journey means traveling and so you would, on this journey, just drive round and round. You've got to fill up with fuel every so often and probably you sleep in the car. The journey would go on until you decided on a destination. However, the idea of anyone being foolish enough to do that is so bizarre that you can not imagine any sane person setting off on a 'journey.'
Going, 'on a diet' without a final destination is just a crazy, for the same reason going on a journey without a destination is mad. When you get up to go somewhere, you have to have a destination in mind, do not you? Even if it's just the kitchen or the toilet you are going to, you have to direct your actions. That's why, simply going 'on a diet' is utter madness yet that is what hundreds of thousands of other intelligent people are doing, worldwide, every day.
On their 'diet' they turn down cake and treats, they count calories, cut out carbs, and increase exercise and then, when the diet does not work they tell themselves they lack the willpower needed to succeed. Yet, what if, just what if, it was not so much the lack of willpower but the lack of a final destination that was creating the problem? Your subconscious mind will take you unerringly towards the focus of you attention, if your attention is on 'diet,' then 'diet' it is.
You'll never get slim by going on a 'diet' but you may get slim if you 'diet' to reach your goal of your ideal size and weight and that's what successful doctors do.
I help people to create their final destination and give them tools to keep it in mind, and keep walking towards it, until they come there. Successful diets seem to be out of the reach of most people but they are no longer need to be for you.
