Nothing Tastes As Good As Slim Feels
Successful weight loss requires a new set of habits. Your current and past habits have created your current weight. A different set of habits will create a different result – ideally , some weight loss.
STOP DIETING – form new habits
Being overweight is not a crime. It doesn’t lower your value as a human being. Weight , however, can affect your health. It can affect your ability to do and/or enjoy activities. It can affect your self-esteem. It can affect nearly all aspects of your life.
If you want to lose weight, do it for yourself, don’t do it because you’re “supposed to be thinner.” You must want to lose weight so that you can play with the kids without getting winded, you can look in the mirror and feel good about what you see, you want to live a long and healthy life or you want to improve your overall quality of life or look good in spandex. These are all fine reasons to lose weight as long as they come from you.
A lighthouse is a powerful light which directs ships on their journeys along rocky coastlines and in stormy weather.
I have a powerful book which can direct us along what can sometimes be the rocky coastline of weight loss.
There are two parts to “my” book. Part one covers weight loss: current popular methods why they’re broken, how the brain and body naturally change, how weight loss works, and the resulting best approach.
Part two covers strategies that are based on the conclusions of part one. Part two begins with the ideal psychology of weight loss. How should we think about our weight loss journey in general? How should we approach food and fitness? Once these questions are thoroughly gone into you’ll have a sound idea of not only the best way to lose weight, but the best mindset for weight loss. For example you’ll know that processed food is a major cause of weight gain but also that you shouldn’t try to resist it directly.
At this point, you’ll be ready to formulate your mini habits plan, and there’s an in depth guide to help you create a plan that suits your lifestyle. Unlike dieting a mini habit plan is completely flexible and adaptable to you. Once you’ve got a mini habit plan we’ll talk about situational strategies like how to handle holidays, snacking, temptation, peer pressure, eating out and buying groceries.
Some books give you recipes. Some books give you a list of foods to (not) eat. This book (Click !)teaches you how to change your behaviour to loose weight permanently, and that’s more valuable than the world’s greatest recipe book or most accurate list of weight loss foods. When you can change your behaviour you can become the person you’ve always wanted to become.
The techniques in this book are powerful and transformative and yet they’re so simple that anyone can succeed with them.

Thoughts from the “lighthouse”
Every person has a diet (noun), but it’s only if you are trying to lose weight that you diet (verb).
Why it’s a terrible idea to forbid junk food.
Why eating fruit is essential to losing weight (for lots of reasons).
How the body’s change process mirrors that of the brain,and why that is great news for losing weight.
“ In his book (Click !)Stephen lists 7 possible strategies you could use to, individually or in combination, to stop drinking soda, and I’d like to share these with you.
- Stop drinking soda (direct resistance)
- Limit soda consumption and pare down until eliminated (“weaning off”)
- Stop buying soda (starve the source)
- Create a consequence for drinking soda (negative reinforcement)
- Choose a comparably enjoyable replacement drink and make it readily available. (substitution)
- Delay drinking soda for 10 mins. (establish control, reduce temptation, and wait out craving)
- Require yourself to drink a full glass of water before every soda (healthy obstacle and semi substitute)
Isn’t that refreshing ! You’re not trapped into trying and failing with the same one every time. In theory, any of them could work. In practice, some of them will work better, and some will depend on the person.
- Temptation Strategy : Mini Routines
- Grocery Store Strategy : Healthy Swap
- Home Eating Strategy
- Snacking Strategy
- Eating Out Strategy
- Peer Pressure Strategy
- Parties and Holidays Strategy
After reading this book (Click !)you will be armed with strategies that can take you the distance. You will be able to apply these strategies seven years from now as well as today, because they are designed for lifelong use and success. If you’ve tried the frantic , motivation-driven push to lose weight quickly, you know how that ends. If you’ve tried to change your diet overnight, you know how that ends. Try this way, and you’ll see a different happier ending.
To make real, lasting progress, you need to make changes you can sustain. And these changes are not going to become more difficult over time, but easier to do as your brain familiarizes with them. When they finally become habitual, they will be your new preferences , and then you wont have to operate under any plan. You’ll just be living your new lifestyle.
Lasting weight loss is possible, not through dieting, but through small and consistent changes that mesh with the way your body and brain prefer to change. If a behavior is “too small to fail” and so easy that you can do it on your worst day, what can stop you from doing it? Nothing, and that means that nothing will stop you from changing your behavior and getting healthier.
Mini Habits for Weight Loss (Click !)is success and practice-driven. Too many people set goals they cannot reach. That isn’t fruitful. We get better by practicing hitting targets, not by failing to hit targets out of our reach. Imagine succeeding every day, not just when you are motivated. Imagine growing in confidence every day. Imagine losing weight over the next year without having fear of regaining it because of how you’ve changed from the inside out , rather than from forced , conscious -only, willpower-draining outside -in dieting programs.
This is your chance to try a weight loss strategy that can actually work long-term. I hope you take advantage of the opportunity before you. As the saying goes, once you go mini, you don’t go back.
** Another little quote from this great book: (Click !)
” Never mistake Your Goal for Your Strategy – use them both properly. Your Goal is where you’d like to go. Your Strategy is how you plan to get there. “
Processed food is terrible. It is the bane of weight loss. Therefore. the goal is to stop eating it. The best strategy, however, is not to stop eating it, since a “junk food ban” will make you feel deprived when you don’t eat it and shameful when you do. Our book will give you a number of possible strategies for achieving this goal.
Am always dipping in and out of the information in this book. It truly was a good buy and my guiding light on this my weight loss journey to Looking Good and Feeling Good. My mini habit regarding my reading is to read at least one page a day every day. Usually read a lot more than that I tell you.
Thank you for reading my article. I do hope that you have enjoyed it.
