4 Simple Rules to Hypnotic Weight Loss – Pt 2

October 10, 2017 | By More

This is a continuation of last month’s article…

Protocol number 2 is eat what you want to eat, not what you think you should eat. What does that mean? It means that if in front of you, you have some Brussels sprouts and some broccoli, and you don’t like those but you’re told that they’re healthy for you, and you have a piece of cheesecake, a slice of cheesecake that you really enjoy. If you really want the cheesecake but you don’t want the Brussels and the broccoli, for example, eat the fricking cheesecake. If you really want the broccoli and the other things, then you can eat those, but you’re just weird if you’d rather eat that than cheesecake.

But you eat what you want, not what you think you should eat. See, every diet works short term if you follow it, ‘cause it’s slowing down your options. It’s closing down your bandwidth of what you can eat, what you can put into your body, whether that’s low carbs, low fat, juicing, whatever it might be. Weight Watchers counting points, counting calories. Initially it’s going to work, which means you’re going to lose weight. But eventually, as science shows us, as any studies will show this. Go on Google Scholar, you’ll find this out for free. The health and weight loss industry has a fail rate of a round about 98%, and I’m being conservative there. It means 98% of the time, everyone who tries to lose weight not only gains all the weight back, but on average an extra five to seven pounds on top of where they were. But now they’re out of pocket, and they’re doing the yo-yo diet, which is bad for your metabolism.

And when you say you can’t eat something, if I say you’re never allowed to eat any carbs anymore, what are you gonna do? You’re only gonna focus on carbs, because you’re like, “Why can’t I eat them anymore?” If I say to you, “You’re never allowed to eat chocolate again,” and you love chocolate, what are you gonna do? You’re only gonna focus on eating chocolate. If I say to you, “Don’t think of a blue tree,” what do you have to do to process the sentence? You have to think of a blue tree.

So here’s the thing, once you take away any food from your diet, out of pure willpower you might go a couple of days, maybe even a couple of weeks, but eventually you will break and you won’t just eat one donut, you’ll eat 10, you’ll eat 20, you’ll eat 30, and you’ll become addicted to them. Because you were told not to do something.

So in this, this is not a diet. You’re allowed to eat whatever you want. That does not mean that you eat a whole frigging cheesecake that’s for a family of five. No, no, no, that’s not what it means as Tiger joins me now. And Tiger needs to lose a bit of weight as well, but I don’t like to tell her because sometimes she gets upset and bites me. But it just means you eat what you want to eat, not what you think you should eat. Because when you realize that you could truly eat anything, but the right level, in moderation, and you realize no food’s a sin, nothing becomes so much of a big deal then. When you start to edit the foods you can eat, “Well I’m never going to eat chocolate again even though I love it. I’m never going to eat donuts again, even though I love it.” Because then what happens is eventually you’ll break, as most people do most of the time, and they’ll eat way too much of it. But when you realize that if you truly want to eat it, you can eat it, but you eat it in moderation, that starts to take away that barrier. You stop playing that game with yourself of what I can’t eat, what I can eat. So protocol number two is eat what you want you should eat…what you want to eat, not what you think you should eat. Okay?

Protocol 3 will be in next month’s Tone.
