Most people who have trouble losing weight and more important, keeping it off, generally feel pessimistic. So how do you overcome your pessimism? You have to reprogram your state of mind to be one of more optimistic and powerful because most people when they feel pessimistic generally give up, feel defeated, and sabotage their diet. You want to learn how to change your state of mind by changing your language from what it is not to what it is. So instead of saying “diets never work,” you would say “sticking to a diet is a challenge.” Instead of saying, “I can’t eat that,” say, “I can eat this.” Concentrate on changing your language. Talk about what it is instead of what it is not and then you will see by far better results.
