Losing weight: 3 reasons why it’s hard hard and 1 reason why it can be easy easy!

I wrote about weight control for the National Enquire magazine for 10 years. I run a weight control workshop for LA County, Whittier hospital, a college and many clinics. Let’s you and me get to business, it’s free: Listen, dude, it is very hard to shed pounds because we sit down to eat and toward the end catch ourselves overeating and it’s too late in the meal to stop right. In one experiment I asked participants to pour 3 oz of serial into a bowl, participants pours 5 oz unknowingly, 33% more breakfast cereal than they tought they ate. Worse, we eat out too often because we are social beings and can’t pass an opportunity to be with friends. Also, eating is a pleasure and we believe in eating to live instead of believing in living to eat, yes, the oriental dude lives to eat. Chinese guys live to eat, go to any good oriental restaurant in Chinatown and you can see and hear the laughter and energy spreading around round tables (roundness of furniture increases IQ, energy and consciousness). We Americans sit confronting each other and eat to live while complaining about our looks and preoccupation with food.

In as minute you will find out that it is easy to lose weight if you use a trait that Freud called real awareness. He proclaimed that humans are rarely really conscious while they say that they use this “C” trait a lot – Consciousness! What is real consciousness? Consciousness is focused thinking that is expressed. Only automatic thoughts come from most minds. FT comes from the spiritual environment, choice! If you start practicing it within a few weeks you will noticed the effect. You will be able to stop a meal any time you choose! Now, sounds easy, yes, if you do it but research shows that most people don’t exercise their consciousness. In terms of Dr. Kahneman’s System 1 Heuristic or System 2 Conscious, most people go heuristic thinking they are conscious. The mind resist consciousness because it doesn’t want to lose its power over you in favor of free-will. You see, to use your consciousness to lose weight is easy to do but practically you have to ask your mind for permission. Let’s say that you are the 5% of the people who are really stronger than their mind so you start living consciously right now (For example: choose to do 10 things about food in the next hour that you usually don’t do). Can you sustain it? Good luck!
