You Don’t Need Willpower to Lose Weight


Are you someone that has attempted to lose weight in the past? Have you searched for online solutions, listening to various weight loss gurus? Have you tried all the fad diets you could find? There are many different ways of losing weight, many of which have a common mentality. They believe that willpower and discipline are the most important elements of weight loss. 

At The Metabolism Reboot, we have helped women lose 20 to 45 pounds in 6 weeks on average. 90 to 95 percent of our clients are 40 or older. One question we tend to receive frequently from potential clients is, “How do I get more disciplined?”. Unfortunately, answering this question won’t actually help you lose weight and keep it off. We’ll explain why. 

How To Lose Weight Sustainably

Most of our clients have tried different diets and weight loss programs only to feel discouraged and dejected. Even when those methods worked in the short term, they always ended up gaining that weight back. People are led to believe by weight loss gurus that they are lacking discipline. If only they would force themselves to do something they didn’t want to do, they would get the results they desire. 

While willpower and discipline might help you lose weight, it is not a sustainable, long-term solution. When considering how to lose weight, one must develop an identity as a healthy person. Willpower represents forceful and unnatural energy. Losing weight sustainably starts with developing a mindset and belief in yourself that you are healthy and capable of staying healthy.

Establishing Healthy Habits 

What does a healthy person do? What are healthy habits that can lead to sustainable weight loss? Answering these questions begins with a little bit of research and guidance. While weight loss can be a healthy goal for many, it can actually cause disordered eating along with other destructive habits. 

The main focus of a healthy person is to nourish the body rather than deprived it. A healthy person understands that food is meant to be the body’s main source of nourishment. They understand that real and natural foods can bring balance to their hormones, and blood sugar, and reduce inflammation.

A great way to start your health and weight loss journey is to begin to establish a positive relationship with food. This begins with understanding how a healthy person thinks and acts, then carrying out healthy behaviors. Developing this sort of identity can create a dramatic shift in a person’s life. Once you identify as a healthy person, your behaviors will follow naturally. 

At The Metabolism Reboot, we will help you shift your mindset. We understand it can be difficult to break away from the habits of forceful action. We will educate you on how to maintain a healthy relationship with your diet and exercise. Willpower and discipline don’t need to be your method for weight loss anymore. 

The Metabolism Reboot: How To Lose Weight Fast

Most fad diets expect you to eat less and exercise more. They may encourage you to use meal substitutes, shakes, or weight loss pills. These methods force you to put added stress on your body and overextend yourself. Discipline and willpower cannot overcome such strenuous and unreasonable long-term habits. 

The Metabolism Reboot is designed to promote healthy habits that show you how to lose weight fast and keep it off. You don’t need to starve yourself in order to get the results you want. In fact, depriving your body of vitamins and nutrients will throw your system out of whack, making it harder to keep the weight off. 

Are you ready to lose weight fast? Are you tired of diets that only work temporarily? The Metabolism Reboot is ready to serve. Let’s get started! Schedule your Metabolism Strategy call today.
