The brain has incredible power to shape our choices, and in turn, our bodies — and much of that happens beyond our conscious awareness. The creators of most weight loss plans are experts in nutrition and exercise physiology and have wonderful insights into the human body. But they do not necessarily understand how the mind works. If your brain is not engaged in creating your ideal shape, any weight you lose will eventually come back — plus a few more pounds. The internal mental processes that guide our choices and actions can be very complicated. In fact, scientists believe that up to 80% of our thoughts and actions are dictated at the subconscious level. This is why it’s so important to program your mind to work with you toward your health goals, at all levels of consciousness. It starts with understanding the 10 negative behaviors that are holding you back from achieving your ideal shape.
