8 Ways We Sabotage Our Weight Loss

billkozyBillkozy on 06/09/2009

8WaysWeSabotageOurWeightLoss Photo There are several traditions people have adapted in the interest of maintaining a healthy diet. However, in an ironic twist, psychologists have come up with some interesting theories as to how these well-intended habits actually undermine our efforts. Dr. Lisa Turner puts it this way: "It's not so much the behavior itself that sabotages our attempts to lead a healthier lifestyle, it's the unconscious thinking that underlies that behavior." Here now are 8 ways in which the subliminal thinking in these activities sabotage our attempts to attain a healthy weight. From Psychologies magazine UK edition Feb. 2009 issue.

As a researcher and author of the books, 'Largely Happy' and
'Healthy Kids, Happy Kids' I found this quiz fascinating. The
true reason we don't lose weight, however, is because our
bodies are programmed to defend fat and fight back, even after
bariatric surgery, when food intake is minimal - it's all stored
as fat. So size-acceptance and health should always be the
priorities. Very interesting quiz indeed. Thanks.
