Just the other day, someone asked me “how do we control our weight?” The answer is: There is no control. If you understand the power of the mind and the law of attraction, then you know that the more you focus on something, the more you will attract it. In other words, if you keep focusing on losing weight then you will actually get more of it.

When we try to control our eating by denying ourselves some of the foods that we love, it will generally “backfire”. So, reverse psychology is actually the name of the game. If you let go of your grip on deprivation and say to yourself “I can have that”, then you will feel a release of the temptation. When that feeling of deprivation is gone, then you may lose the desire to eat whatever it is that you were denying yourself in the first place.

In fact, there was a study in which two groups of women were given a plate of cookies. The first group of women were on a “diet”, and their intention was to not allow themselves to have any of the cookies. The second group were allowing themselves to go ahead and enjoy the cookies. In the end, the second group actually ate less of the cookies than the first group, because the desire to eat the cookies was not as strong as the group of women who were denying themselves.

The point is that if you try to allow yourself to enjoy foods that you love, and release the need to control your eating, you may find that you experience less emotional eating. Ultimately it is important to be good to yourself, and enjoy the foods you love. At the same time you can feed your soul in ways that will fill your heart and not just your stomach. As a result, the body will find its own natural weight balance.
