I wonder if your ever going to run out of ideas as to how to say the same thing over and over again???
This was a comment that was left on my blog over the weekend.
It didn’t make me mad, because quite frankly..it’s a fair statement. My message is a simple one: Eat Less, workout, don’t stress as much. Yet here’s the deal…Here’s the reason why I have to repeat myself. You don’t need anyone’s permission to eat less. YOU need to give YOURSELF permission to eat less and not stress about it.
That’s where I come in.
We’ve been brainwashed into thinking that eating a little less is bad for us. We’ve also been given hundreds if not thousands of rules that “We must follow” This Brainwashing and these rules…they create guilt and self-doubt every time we try to lose weight. Which is why there are millions of people who want to lose weight, but ‘don’t know how’ …or, who are simply afraid to eat less.
So that’s why my message is repeated.
To be successful at losing weight, you need to be able to eat less, guilt free. There are probably thousands of people who kinda, sorta want to try Eat Stop Eat. But they are worried about their muscle and their metabolism. “What if they get hungry, What if they get tired, what about starvation mode etc?”
In other words, they haven’t given themselves permission to believe that losing weight can be simple. And even if they try Eat Stop Eat, it’s not going to work nearly as well without that permission. Eat Stop Eat is NOT going to work if you are stressing out EVERY TIME you fast. (I can only imagine that those 24 hours must be almost unbearable if you think your actually doing something wrong or bad.)
So it’s a simple message, but it needs to be tackled in a hundred different ways. Everyday People think up 100 new ways of making you think you are doing things wrong in your life. My job is to remind you that Losing weight can be simple and almost mindless..if you let it.
