Lose Weight - The 2 Minute Solution

This is not a dream.

The one way to lose weight consistently is to be in tune with your body. You can connect with your body by daydreaming for 2 minutes before you eat. Take that time to tune-in to your dreams and rediscover with the big picture of who you are.

Daydreaming helps you stay in touch with how you want to see yourself.
  • It's body image power
  • Allow yourself to visualize how you want to appear and how you want to feel.
Reconnect with simple daydreams and your self-esteem will change. You will  respect yourself differently.
  • You'll discover a new found patience with who you are. 
  • The result will be a new relaxed way of eating
Remember the art of leisurely dreaming when you were young, a time of innocence, of privately listening with your senses to the rush of your life. Noticing what you're looking at and smelling is normal. It’s still important to do this. Appetites are personal.
  • Do this for 2 minutes before every meal and watch emotional habits and your body change.
Binging as a physical "solution" to emotional stress is like putting a band-aid on a  broken heart or rubbing butter on a burn.  It's a mountain of tension with nowhere to go.
  • Allowing yourself to daydream relaxes tension. 
  • Get ready to be surprised.
According to diet and nutrition experts, an apple a day can help fight being overweight.  Other experts publish lists of healthy snacks. Experts everywhere are telling you how to stop binging or start dropping pounds. Obviously, there are so many experts because there is no one answer.
  • Daydream to relax and regain your perspective. 
  • Then tune-in to your body.  
  • You'll recognize what's right for you.
Your senses have always been the way of being in direct touch with your world. Listening to intuition is not daydreaming. It’s staying in touch with the present. That's where your appetite is.

Binging- Getting Intimate

Let's get personal and talk about intimate relationships. The most intimate relationship you have is with your own body. 
  • You sleep with it every night, dress and feed it. 
  • Your body gives you pleasure and physical power. 
  • You wash it, touch yourself, use your body to get places and use it to be noticed.
Maybe you work out or maybe you hide your body with certain clothes. Everyone has an intimate relationship with their body. It's an emotional connection. 
Classic diets insist you focus on a plan and ignore physical messages from your body. 
  • That's why people binge. 
  • When you ignore what you feel physically, you stress out your body. 
  • The result is an unhealthy emotional relationship with food. 
Binging happens because you lose your natural connection with physical satisfaction. It's the result of an emotional sense of confusion and isolation.
  • When you binge, taste is not on your mind because you are thinking with your emotions, not responding to physical hunger.
  • Binging is a desperate, very personal plea for comfort.
  • Eating intuitively is a natural connection with satisfaction.
  • Use dignity and courage to respect yourself.
  • A healthy emotional connection is protective, not abusive.
Eating intuitively is relaxing when you eat, so you taste your food and notice how your body feels. Stay intimate with yourself. Stay connected with your body.
Get off of the diet dogma treadmill of emotional isolation and notice your intimate needs. You can use your senses to connect with your body.
  • Stress around eating impacts every physical pleasure you might enjoy. 
  • It's not good for intimacy in any part of your life.
Being intimate starts with respecting yourself. Honor yourself by forgiving binging and then, give yourself a chance to listen to your body.
