TMHS 031: Why You Can’t Lose Weight (The Truth)

In this episode of The Model Health Show we’re having a real, heart-to-heart conversation about why most people simply can’t lose weight. Millions of people have tried, failed, and tried again to lose weight but have come up short in the end. Why has this happened to so many good people?

The reality is, it doesn’t matter how good you are, it doesn’t matter how smart you are, if you’re not following the principles we’re talking about today you will undoubtedly struggle and fail in the end. People all over the world that HAVE achieved the weight loss they wanted have all followed these principles. They are simple, fundamental laws to get you from where you are, to where you want to be with your body and your life. Listen in with an open heart and open mind, and I know that you’ll finally discover what’s been holding you back.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why the steps to losing weight are EASY but most people still can’t do it.
  • What the “social brain” is and how it’s controlling the results in your life.
  • How mirror neurons work to program your thoughts and actions.
  • Why having low quality food in your house literally messes with your mind.
  • How your friends impact your health and habits (the real science behind it).
  • What Albert Einstein said about changing our mindset.
  • A simple practice you can do every morning to keep a positive, healthy mindset.
  • The most important decision you have to make if you want to lose weight.
  • Why your “reason” for losing weight is more important than how you lose weight.
  • What happens to me when I see people’s shopping carts full of unhealthy food.
  • The 3 levels of service and understanding that you can bring to someone’s life.
  • Why you have far more time to exercise and eat healthy than you realize.
  • How time itself is a huge oversight when you’re trying to lose weight (hint: life is short).
  • Why having a healthy lifestyle is a cliche that most people don’t follow.
  • Why just one small mistake can make people “fall off the wagon” in their weight loss program.

    Great show. We are all actors and we act out what we see. Jawanza Kunjufu stated this years ago about children, but we all fall into this mirror category. Subliminal messages are everywhere on purpose. We have to learn how to activate our filters for a better life on purpose!

    When does your weight loss program start, how to sign up and what do you think about HCG diet.

      Hi Joyce, the New Year, New Body 2014 banner above is where you can get all the info you need. The HCG diet is not all it’s cracked up to be… Lots of things to cover with it. I’ll do my best to do a podcast on it this year.

    Wow, some straight to the heart-of-the-matter stuff!
    “Can’t lose weight because I think I don’t have enough time.” I think that I have been living that way, but you’re right: Life is short and I have a mission and a job to do here.

    Because I’ve already lost a good amount of weight, I’ve let myself get lazy/complacent/stuck here–instead of pressing on toward the goal. It’s time to “end this chapter of my life and step into the next one.”
