While there truly is an avalanche of weight loss information and an enormous smorgasbord of diet plans available ‘out there’ to choose from, most, if not all of them fail to address 2 specific and very important components that take place ‘within‘ each person’s individual body … including yours. These 2 vital components have a direct and tremendous impact on when and how much weight you lose … if at all!
The 2 components that effect each and every one of us and which actually determine the eventual outcome you will experience are in fact:-
- the psychological component (mind processes); and
- the physiological component (bodily processes)
In other words, it’s the way your mind and body automatically work on the ‘inside’ that responds to what, when and how much you eat on the ‘outside’. This also includes the underlying reasons as to why you eat the way that you do.

WHAT You Eat Or Don’t Eat
WHEN You Eat Or Don’t Eat
HOW MUCH You Eat Or Don’t Eat
WHY You Eat Or Don’t Eat
ALL HAVE A DIRECT EFFECT ON THESE 2 IMPORTANT PROCESSES
The fact is, the combination and response of these two processes have a tremendous effect on if, when and how much weight you lose AND whether you are able to keep it off or not – regardless of which diet plan you are following.
There are many psychological responses that are both typical and common amongst people. At the same time, there are other psychological responses that are purely a result of each person’s individual past conditioning and experiences.
When it comes to your physical processes, while the basic mechanics of your digestive system are the same as everybody else’s digestive system, your particular system is influenced by your individual genes, metabolism, hormones and more.
Most people are totally unaware of how their mind and body respond to the way they eat, especially when they try following typical diet plans in order to lose weight.
What they find instead is that they spend a lot of time, money and effort for nothing as, sooner or later, they end up putting any weight they have lost back on … plus more.
Worse still, they compromise their health each and every time they start yet another diet.
Recurring Weight Gain – Here’s The Problem In A Nutshell
Firstly, most people think they know all there is to know about weight loss. They follow the crowd not realizing that the longer they pursue traditional diet plans, the longer they actually work against their mind and body – the real reason why people put weight back on.
Secondly, no longer do most people eat for the purpose of nourishing and fueling their body, which at the end of the day, is what food is truly meant for. They eat for many other varied reasons (some obvious – some not so obvious), all of which have a very direct and considerable impact on their psychological and physiological processes – whether they are dieting or not.
Without becoming aware of these reasons and addressing those that need attention and without finding out how to work with your mind and body, it won’t matter how many diets or other methods you try, your results will unfortunately always be the same … short lived, totally frustrating and maybe even depressing, especially when you end up putting on more weight than when you first started dieting. Instead of burning fat, you end up burning out.
Mind Your Own Weight & Stop Following The Crowd
By reading the above, you have now probably realized that there are many variables that exist within each individual. The key to losing weight and keeping it off therefore very much depends on you tuning into your own body and responding accordingly rather than following diets that are created for the masses.
By keeping abreast of the articles as they build over time as well as the blog posts that appear here on the Mind Your Own Weight site, you will not only learn how to tune into your own body, you will also learn how to respond to the many signals your body gives you as a true guide to losing weight effectively and healthily.
