How to change your mindset to attract weight loss.
When it comes to losing weight and eating healthy, your mindset plays a large role.
Most people have favorite foods that they are used to eating. Many people eat the same types of foods throughout the day.
These habits become engraved in our minds.
I am someone who loves to eat salad. I would eat salads for every meal if I could. When I go eat with friends, they always comment about how they could never eat salads like I do. I was not like this when I was younger though. It took time for me to make the change, and now I really do enjoy them.
My lunches and dinners used to be more carb based. Pizza, sandwiches, burgers, and other fast food that you could get quickly. Going away to college changed a lot of my eating habits. I found that in the beginning I would crave the foods that I was used to. Once in a while I would allow myself to eat some of the not so healthy foods, and I still do this occasionally.
Have you noticed that the more you try to tell yourself that you should not do something, the more you think about doing it? Then as you think more about not being able to do it, then you fall into telling yourself you will start tomorrow. Then it turns into you not starting at all.
Breaking this pattern and changing your mindset will bring you MUCH better results.
Sometimes it’s much easier to break the pattern if you start with small changes, like swapping soda for water. As you get used to one small change, you can add another small change. This will help you build up you habits and create better results over time. It keeps you from falling into self sabotage.
This will help you develop more confidence in yourself and your abilities.
Don’t forget to reward yourself once in a while though. Many people are successful following the 80/20 rule.
What is the 80/20 rule?
It means that 80 % of the time you will stick with the good foods and good habits. Then 20% percent of the time you can reward yourself with the foods that are not as good for you.
We tend to be much harder on ourselves many times than other people are. Remember that you don’t want to be hard on yourself, because it will send you in that downward spiral.
One of my favorite habits that I have added into my own routine is a meal replacement shake. It’s packed with good vitamins and minerals that your body needs. It also tastes more like a sweet treat! You can check out my favorite one here.
Sometimes I will also add some chocolate belly fat blaster to the shake if I didn’t take it in the morning before breakfast. If you’re someone who loves chocolate pudding, you will love the taste of it! You can check that out here.
Whatever habits you start out with, remember to keep them small. You can always add new habits over time. Hope this help you out too!
