Successful Weight Loss is Yours. No Willpower Needed.

Posted Nov 03 2012 5:38am

If you’ve got the willpower, then you can do it.

This is the override theory of reducing your weight. This is where successful weight loss is the result of regulating your urges, turning down temptations, exerting your self-control, and applying lots of energy and effort to control yourself. In other words, you have to override all of your tendencies to eat too much food, eat all the wrong foods, and stray from your diet. In plain English, you have to turn against yourself and your ways—at least those ways you’ve developed that are maintaining your weight right where it is.

A daunting prospect.

What if you didn’t have to work so hard to lose the weight? No, this is not the usual pitch for the fantasy of easy weight loss—10 pounds in 10 days, or watch the weight drop off you just by taking this magic elixir. There’s a more realistic way. It’s using psychology to lose weight, and you can get a lot of strategies for doing just that by going to the whitepaper on Using Psychology to Lose Weight: Because Dieting and Exercise Alone Don’t Work”.
