1. So many of my clients over the years have a very specific and immutable number of pounds that they need to lose, or target weight that they need to attain. They give all kinds of power and worship to such a number. Where do these numbers come from? And why do we have such a religious fervor in the supremacy of such a number? Oftentimes, the physiologic stress of trying to attain such numbers is more detrimental to our weight loss efforts than our eating habits. Check out the video and learn more.

    We all want to be happy, but many of us have a very specific list of the exact conditions that must be met around our diet and our weight. Once this seemingly impossible list is fulfilled, then we can finally be happy. Talk about pressure around happiness! This toxic nutritional belief can powerfully hold us back form getting the results we want. Learn more, and check out some new alternatives that can help get you to where you truly want to go.

    Perhaps the most common toxic nutritional belief is that there’s a perfect diet – meaning a perfect way of eating that will make us happy, healthy, slender and live forever. So many of my clients believe they’ve found the perfect dietary system and put all their efforts into following the perfect diet perfectly. The problem is, no one and no thing is perfect, and when people fail even once in their dietary efforts, the net result is self-rejection, self-attack, and a lot of wasted energy. Check out the video and see what you think.

    One of the most pervasive toxic nutritional beliefs when it comes to weight loss is that the body I am currently living in is “not the real me.” If you’re trying to lose weight, it makes perfect sense to take this approach. But the problem is, if we believe the body we’re living in is not really ours, we create a physiologic stress response that changes our digestive metabolism and calorie burning capacity, and creates the opposite result that we are intending from our weight loss strategies.

  5. Many people live with the false belief that appetite is something bad. After all, if we’re trying to lose weight then appetite must be the enemy. But consider the biological insanity of such a concept and how it goes against the whole of natural science. As soon as the brain senses “enemy” – it goes into a stress response, and signals the body to create a long cascade of unwanted symptoms including digestive shutdown and inhibition of full calorie burning capacity.
