Why does losing weight seem harder to lose now?

December 10, 2023


Because Your Body is Stubborn

Because your body adapts to whatever you throw at it, and the older you get the more stubborn it is against change. Your body wants everything to stay the same, and your mind gets in on this by maintaining the habits it knows and trusts.

To change your body, you start with changing your thinking. Think of your mind as a grassy field, and your thoughts as the pathways worn across it. When hunger strikes, your mind will naturally want to make the same right turns to walk down the same path.

Start Taking Little Left Turns

The most common mistake we saw our customers make is jump from a fast-food and takeout-only diet to hardcore salad and vegan over night. This is like taking a completely opposite route across the grassy field, while walking backwards; your mind will dismiss this as an irritating interruption it must tolerate for a little while, not a new reality—this is why diets fail.

The trick is to introduce that change gradually, with lots of little left turns. This encourages the natural curiosity of your mind to compare the right turns it knows and trusts to the new ones, and lets it learn where the left turns make more sense than right turns.

Wield Your Natural Curiosity

One day your mind looks up and it’s taking a path across the field, sprinting backwards, wondering why it was ever on the other side. In turn you look at yourself in the mirror with 50 pounds gone, wondering why you wasted all these years forcing your mind, instead of gently nudging it in the right direction and letting its natural curiosity take care of you.
