Dr. Petra Caruso has some great ideas to help you achieve your healthy weight. In fact, she was featured recently on KGW’s Portland Today show! Every day we make countless decisions both on a conscious and subconscious level. Those decisions come from goals we explicitly set for ourselves as well from outdated beliefs or even fears that we hold in our minds.
When we set a new goal it is important to phrase that so that our brain can be working toward that goal at all times, The brain has a difficult time with negative statements such as “I want to ‘lose’ 10 pounds,” so setting a goal of “I am moving toward healthier eating habits,” or “I am at a healthy weight,” allows the brain to move in a positive direction to match that goal.
