6 hacks to make your next diet plan really effective

2015-08-04 07:02

Diet plans and weight loss are not easy, but these six life coaching tips and hacks can help you make sure that your next plan will work more quickly and effectively by getting your body, mind and heart in on the game.

1. Goal Setting

It is said that successful people write their goals down daily – and truly successful people write them down five times a day.

Spend time every day writing down your weight loss goals for the next week, fortnight, month, 3 months and 6 months, as well as what you are willing to give in return for achieving those goals.

You can use throwaway pieces of paper, a journal or this free online tool from your desktop or mobile device: bit.ly/lctfreeweightlosstool

2. Tracking & Gratitude

If you do go the journal route, then use some of that space to track your daily and weekly achievements.

Often when we think we aren’t making progress it’s because we’ve lost track of where we are and how far we’ve come. Writing down your daily weight and how much you’ve lost each day will help you stay on track.

You can do the same with centimeters lost, and you can even track how you feel looking at your body in the mirror each morning.

Over time you will build up points of reference that will show you the progress you’ve actually made.

Once you’ve done that, give thanks for your weight loss!

Simply take a moment to write down what you’re thankful for, say it out loud to the powers that be or use this free online tool: bit.ly/freedailygratitude

What we appreciate, appreciates, so you’ll not only attract more weight loss into your life, but you’ll give yourself a positivity boost that will make the momentum easier.

3. Release Stress

If you’re prone to carrying weight around your belly area, then stress hormones may be a factor at play.

When we experience stress, either good or bad, our brains release a cocktail of chemicals into our bodies, chemicals like cortisol and adrenalin. These have been known to contribute to weight around the middle area when left unchecked.

Use the Go Ape exercise listed on this page to tell your body to turn those chemicals off: bit.ly/lctshocktrauma

4. Support your System

BodyTalk Cortices Tapping can be used daily to support your overall system health and speed up weight loss: bit.ly/lctcorticestapping

The freely available technique is easy to learn and takes about a minute to run. It can also be used to help you combat food cravings, feelings of hunger and lack of motivation around exercise wherever you are.

5. Make yourself love (or hate) something

This NLP anchoring technique is one you can run on your own, using your phone or tablet to make it more effective: bit.ly/lctlovehate

Depending on how you structure the tool, it can be used to either:

  • help you love foods and exercise that you currently hate, or
  • help you feel horrible about foods that are a problem for you

6. Change your Inner Voice

Another tool that lets you use your mobile device for better efficacy, this exercise will change your inner voice dialogue to support you better in your weight loss goals: bit.ly/lctinnervoicescript

When you are utilizing the tool, ensure that the new statements that you’re programming in focus more on your appearance, speaking to your attractiveness.

Engaging your body, mind and heart in your weight loss regime will help you reach your goal weight more quickly – and should help you keep it off this time too.
