IMGCA Article - The Mental Game of Weight Control


The Ultimate Weight Loss Attitude

Greg Ryan

We in the diet and exercise industry have our opinions on what diets work and which ones are just sales gimmicks. I believe this can be very discouraging to you the consumer. Unfortunately, a lot of people want to get on the band wagon of wellness and tap into millions of Americans desperate need to feel better, lose weight and get in better shape.

Over my twenty year tender in the weight loss business I have seen every single program and have heard thousands of success and failure stories. The facts are that any dietary plan on the market has some portion of it that works, but the basic principle of any good eating program, no matter how sugarcoated, centers around calories IN- calories OUT.

The eating "only one type of food diets" will not be effective, and such a restricted diet defeats you mentally. Most diets are just too unrealistic for a person's lifestyle. Plus they don't supply enough basic nutritional needs for people to stay with them. Balance is the key! Attitude is the key to keeping balance!!

For whatever its worth, I would like to propose this mental approach to you using four of the best plans out there. I want to point out the message, so do not shoot the messenger.

Principle #1: Change your unwanted behaviors: For what ever you think about Dr. Phil he still has the best approach to weight loss when it comes with dealing with the beliefs behind the behaviors.

Goal #1: Figure out your illusions behind your behaviors. Change them and you will change your life.

Principle #2: Have an accountability system. When Weight Watchers decided to put responsibility back into the consumers hands by connecting points and weigh-ins into your eating habits their business tripled. You need accountability.

Goal #2: Incorporate a support and accountability system into your wellness plan.

Principle #3: Sugar is killing you inside out. Instant gratification is killing you. Sugar busters taught us to watch our sugar filled foods.

Goal #4: Lose the sugar, lose the weight. That simple!

Principle #4: America has a protein deficiency. The South Beach Diet has been successful because it does two things. Increases the amount of protein in your diet and cuts down on the meats filled with so many preservatives.

Goal #4: Start eating more protein in your diet and less complex carbohydrates.

Whatever your beliefs and success in these four programs, in my experience after working with thousands of people - those who had these four principles in their diet plans were more successful. I call this the Changing from the INSIDE OUT mindset.
