How do naturally lean people stay lean? We all have a friend who eats what they want and doesn’t put on weight. In fact, sometimes they seem to eat more than you. “’Snot fair,” you say, but lets look a little deeper.
How do they do it? Well each person is different but several reasons why a person remains naturally lean can be they have many (or all) of the habits and beliefs below. Scroll down the page to hear interviews with naturally lean people as well as helpful video exercises for you to do.
Certain Weight; Set Point Belief
Set point belief. Their belief is often that they can’t put on weight and they “know” they never go above x weight on the scales no matter what. They programme themselves to stay that weight both consciously and unconsciously. Hear Chloe talk below.
Some days they may have no appetite at all- other days they do and just eat and eat. Do you programme yourself for the opposite? “I only have to look at cake= 2lbs on”?
Not A Great Boredom Eater
Food is not the top of the agenda so they don’t eat when bored or for comfort (ok some might but not many). People who struggle with their weight tend to think about food all the time except when eating as they often go into a trance.
This is why hypnosis can really help as it can help free you from your unhelpful trances.
When I’m Upset, I Just Can’t Eat
When upset, most cannot eat at all, their appetite goes. When someone upsets you at work do you head for the crisps, chocolate or your comfort food of choice?
I’m Ill, I Can’t Eat
When ill they often cannot face food, their appetite switches itself of completely.
Do you feed your cold? And comfort eat through any other bouts of illness?
I Don’t Want Anymore
They leave meals half finished. They seem to know instinctively how food will feel in their body and know when enough is enough.
Sometimes they will eat a lot during the day and not eat again later- skipping meals as their appetite switches off as their body processes the day’s food.
