Are Your Thoughts Making You Fat?You may have heard it before, that your thoughts create your reality. But what about your physical appearance? Do your thoughts affect your health and body shape or size? Research and health professionals prove that what you think can have a powerful reaction to your weight and physical well-being.

Sometimes people try to  “think” or “push” there way into a healthy body.  After trying really hard they see it doesn’t happen that way. You can’t just think good thoughts about your body, in order to change you must take action too.

In order to be healthy you must take action to reaching your health goals. If you want to lose weight but think you are overweight and constantly belittle yourself, you are making it harder to lose weight than it needs to be.

Here are the main thought patterns that that can prevent you from weight loss:

 1. Belittling yourself

What do you say to yourself first thing in the morning? Do you wake up feeling recharged and alive? Or do you feel lethargic and run down. Do you say positive things to yourself for negative thoughts about you? What you say to yourself matters. When you say kind things you feel better and often look better.

 2. Comparing yourself to others

When you compare yourself to others it makes you feel worse. Instead of looking at other people look at the positives in yourself.

 3. Insecure about your smile

Many people are insecure about their smile or the shape of their mouth. So they don’t smile often. People who don’t smile often feel more depressed than those people who do. If you are insecure or not confident about your smile you can visit your dentist they will help.

 4. Having an Off Limits List

Many people who are dieting have a list of foods they should avoid. Such as sugary foods. But what happens is the brain thinks ” I can’t have that: so it focuses on it more and puts the dieter in a personal torture. Eating too much sugar can cause many health problems like obesity and cavities but eliminating it isn’t necessary. If you really want to lose weight, just focus on moderation and taking care of your self.
