Many people struggle for years with their weight and try almost every diet and weight-loss method under the sun. They change their diet and join the gym, and the weight is still there, or it comes back.
The truth of the matter is: the biggest thing that helps shift weight is through understanding the reasons why they are eating so much. If you do not address your personal issues (ex: what are the causes of your unhappiness, anger, sadness, frustration, whatever it is), you will tranquilize your problems by comfort eating. Addressing what’s going on deep down is something slimming clubs don’t do. You join, spend lots of money, have a miserable time sticking to boring diets, and then when you lose the weight and leave the weight-loss club, the weight usually piles back on, and each time you put the weight back on, you feel frustrated, knocked-back, and feel that there is little point in trying again.
Weight-management coaching is about dealing with underlying emotional and psychological issues that cause weight gain. When you are able to resolve your personal problems, the weight starts to come off.
It is also about providing support to overcome the challenges of weight-loss.
And of course, it is about embracing a healthier lifestyle: sustainable lifestyle changes, diet, basic nutrition and exercise.
A powerful tool is NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). The aim is to help people understand their personal struggles with weight-loss. By choosing positive and empowering healthy behaviour and reprogramming their weight-loss mind-set, people learn how to regain control of their thoughts, lose weight, and create a healthy lifestyle.
People who undergo Weight Management coaching report feeling happier, more balanced and more confident and able to take control of their diet and lifestyle. They lose weight, form a new relationship with food and adopt a healthier lifestyle. They feel fitter and have a deeper understanding about the causes of their weight gain.
