The most common New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. So people adopt
new behaviors – a diet or an exercise program, for example, but those
behaviors don’t always work.
Jim Bennett, from Belief Workout, explains how the brain and your behavior
play an important role in keeping those resolutions.
Sometimes people succeed in the short-term, when it comes to weight loss
goals, but all too often, the weight comes back. They seldom address why
they do what they do, in other words their thinking. If their old thinking does
not change, the resolutions don’t last long.
Resolutions fail because people don’t realize that beliefs drive the behaviors
that shape our bodies. To keep resolutions, we have to change not only what
we do, but why we do it. If we don’t do that, then our old thoughts will bring
back our old habits, and we’re right back where we started. We teach a
program called the Belief Workout that gives people the tools to change their
thinking as well as their behaviors.
Everyone watching already knows how to lose weight. Most of us have done it
several times. But if the weight comes back, it’s because we haven’t been
able to bridge the gap between what we know we ought to do and what we
actually do. That’s where the Belief Workout comes in. We provide the tools
to identify your beliefs and get them to work for you, not against you.
We’ve actually been teaching these concepts for over six years, and
they’ve been part of ongoing research at both Brigham Young University and
the University of Utah. These studies have determined that this approach to
behavioral change is significantly effective. The people who have taken this
approach don’t lose the weight overnight, but they do lose the weight
consistently, and they keep it off over time. That’s the real goal.
