Whether you are religious are not, you may agree that there is a hidden power in you mind that starts with believing. Faith lets us get though times easier, which would otherwise prove difficult, like walking through a dark cave without ample light. Knowing that things are going to be okay is what drives us forward. We want to do the same thing with your diet.
Sickness starts with the mind, as they say, how you think plays an important rule in your overall well being. Do you take placebo? The first time hearing word, placebo, you may have thought that it was some sort of diet drug. It can be if you take it just right. The placebo effect has been shown to help people recover from sickness without actually having to take medicine. That's right; the medicine you need to get better was there all along. How this works is as follows. While your head is busy processing images, you brain reacts by secreting various substances throughout your body. As a result, your body has what it needs to cope with the environment, changing how you feel. You would be surprised what the placebo effect can have on your mind and body.
- While working out your abs, it is possible to get better results if while workings out you imagine that your abs are a bar of chocolate being vertically broken down as you exercise. Who said candy is bad for you when you are working out? It's all in your head. Give it a try, only this time do it with Skittles.
- Given two people with the same illness, one prescribed the usual medicine and another told that they are being given a newer fast-effecting drug, which is actually a sugar pill (placebo); the person in the placebo group recovers faster from their illness. Note that the reason behind why this works out is not in the sugar, it's in your mind.
The above are two real examples of how the placebo effect works its magic. It's a mystery of how this happens. Who would have thought that just by changing what you think something is before acting or inducing on your body can produce results in areas that otherwise didn't work out in the prior. Following the tracks of medicine, there are many ways the same effects can be produced in other areas such as your diet.
The same placebo effect can be realized in your diet. If your mind is full of negative thoughts, such as pain and hardship, this makes your harder for you body to cooperate with your effort to slim down. Just by changing the way you think about exercise and eating, reinforcing a positive image on the things you do, the placebo effect could make your diet yield results faster.
Faith in being able to lose weight is the first step towards diet success
Let out the little voice in your head telling you, "You can do it." This person is the real you, not your negative self image. If what you were doing before didn't work out, it about time you add something new to your diet's menu, believing. With more faith in your diet, it is possible to block out negative thoughts standing between you and diet success. "Halleluiah!" you can do it too. There are many benefits that come along with thinking positive.
Positive thinking doubles diet results! Imagining your body in motion
Some people call it, "head strong."
