At times we can be bombarded with weight loss stories, articles, hacks, and advice. It feels like you can’t open a magazine without reading about the new fad diet or a list of tips on how to fast track your weight loss journey. It can be so easy to get sucked into the weight loss media frenzy. Here are some of the top myths that you can use to release yourself from mental roadblocks on your own weight loss journey!
Many people use harsh psychological and physical tactics to lose weight. Obviously, to lose weight an individual has to exercises and improve their diet. However, they never truly get to the real root behind why sustained weight loss is so difficult.
There are many health gurus who actually encourage people to do things like stick their weight loss inspiration on the fridge. This may be a model, actor, or someone you aspire to look like.
This attitude and practice is very unhealthy, and seldom produces results other than making you feel worse about yourself!
When looking for inspiration, the answer lies within. The only person that can truly influence your weight loss journey is you. But it’s important to realize that you must get to the real causes before you can ever see any real success.
You need to be the change in the inner beliefs you have about yourself to be successful at weight loss. You and only you can implement the changes you want to see in your body and your life.
You may not realize it but you have most likely set up mental roadblocks, also known as disempowering beliefs about weight loss from a young age. These sabotaging mental beliefs will always win out unless you learn exactly how to eliminate them at the root.

Are you using weight loss as a temporary fix?
Many people believe that losing weight is about getting a sexy beach body for summer or fitting into a certain pair of jeans or dress for a special occasion.
However, this is a disempowering and degrading belief. Improving your diet and including more time for exercise has a slew of different health benefits. But who are you really doing it for? It’s as though you have already set up in your mind that this will be temporary and once it’s done you can go back to your old ways.
You know in reality that people who diet and exercise generally have more energy, stamina, improved concentration levels, and even a better sex drive! On top of this, a nutritious and balanced diet alongside physical activity can decrease symptoms of anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem.
Of course, everyone wants to look great. However, starting a successful weight loss journey is about so much more than that.
Common Disempowering beliefs about weight loss
Deprivation is the answer
This is one of the most popular and disempowering beliefs about weight loss. There are countless fad diets out there that promote deprivation! You may experience rapid weight loss in the first few weeks, but how long can you realistically keep this up?
Many people who start very intensive and strict diets fall off the bandwagon within the month. They start binge eating to comfort themselves emotionally and physically.
This is an erratic way to diet and lose weight. It rarely ever works. Keep in mind, that to lose weight long term, you need to change your relationship with food. But in order to do that you first have to eliminate your disempowering beliefs!
Remember, weight-loss is a life long journey. You need to make changes that are sustainable. This is the only way to make small positive changes that will make a big difference in the long run.
Organic superfoods for hunger control will help supercharge your body to lose weight naturally without depriving your cells of necessary nutrition. But even these helpful aids will only work if you believe in yourself.
The truth behind fad diets
We’ve already briefly mentioned the negative side of fad diets, but there are a few other things to keep a look out for. Most fashionable diets promote a quick health fix with a limited amount of effort.
Unfortunately, this is completely wrong. Making changes in your lifestyle to lose weight is one of the most difficult things you will do in your life. It takes a huge amount of effort, self-control, and self-discipline.
When you really think about it, the philosophy behind fad diets is actually very disempowering.
First and foremost, fad diets are stressful, because they lock you into a fixed, harsh routine. They make weight loss look like a walk in the park, but instead, they require so many restrictions they are almost designed to set you up to fail.
How do we bust this myth? The best way is to make positive changes in your life and keep away from fad diets as a rule.
Telling everyone that you are losing weight!
Telling friends and family that you have started your weight loss journey is one of the most disempowering weight loss practices around. It’s believed that telling everyone that you are trying to lose weight makes you more likely to actually do. But the results actually say otherwise.
Ask yourself this question, why do these people matter? You shouldn’t be losing weight for your social circle, but for yourself, because you want a better quality of life.
On top of this, there is nothing more satisfying than people taking notice of your weight loss without telling them anything. People often marvel at the fact that someone is losing weight without saying a word.
Wait until the results start to show, it will be that much more satisfying. In the age of social media, keeping something private and to yourself is one of the most special things in the world. Keep your weight loss journey a secret.
Let the results of your hard work speak for itself.
These are just some of the negative myths surrounding weight loss. At the end of the day, these beliefs will still exist but how you feel about yourself is the only thing that counts.
Whether it’s through magazine articles, health blogs, lifestyle gurus, or even friends and family. The best way to tackle these myths head-on is to be aware of them and do your best to avoid them.
It’s easy to get sucked into fad diets and making your diets known on social media. Just keep in mind that your story could inspire and influence others. Just like JLo and A Rod’s no sugar diet. Totally unrealistic.
