Using Psychology to Lose Weight — Why Psychology?

Posted Aug 15 2012 5:21am

Losing a lot of weight has to more with what’s on your mind than what’s on your plate.  That’s why using psychology to lose weight is such a good idea.

Here’s what psychology is all about.

What motivates you.
What prevents you from succeeding.
What causes you to fail.
How and why you learn.
Setting goals, implementing them, and reaching them.
Who you are as a person.
   Your personality.
   Your defenses.
   Your openness.
   Your closed-mindedness.
   Your history.
What you do with self-perception.
The social comparisons you make.
How and what you think, and believe.
How you go about monitoring yourself and using the feedback.
What personal conflicts you are facing.
What your feelings do.
Habits.
Patterns of behavior.
