An Interesting article for those who are trying to lose weight or actually achieving anything.
New Research has found that your mind is an important muscle when it comes to weight loss. In fact, it can increase your results by as much as 500 per cent. A study by UK and Aussie researchers compared the weight loss results of participants who were given Functional Imagery Training (FIT), which involves multisensory visualisation techniques, to those given “talk Therapy” for motivation. Neither group received additional diet or fitness advice. After 6 months, the FIT group lost an average of 4.1 kg compared to just 0.74 of the other group. While most people are aware you need to eat less and exercise more to lose weight, according to lead researcher Dr Linda Solbrig, “people simply aren’t motivated enough”. By encouraging you to use all your senses to imagine what it would feel like Ito lose weight and what it would enable you to do, FIT strengthens your resolve and inspires you to make healthier choices.
