Weight Loss

When it comes to losing weight, there are often psychological issues that are underlying over eating and weight loss. Negative self esteem and low confidence are also barriers that maintain the weight loss cycle/weight gain/weight loss cycle.

  • Are you tired of short term weight loss achievements?

  • Are you spending a fortune on diet products?

  • Have you tried every diet out there?

  • Looking for a sustainable relationship with food and dieting?

 

Now for something that actually WORKS… The Thrive Programme

How does The Thrive Programme help with Weight Loss?

Going through The Thrive Programme is NOT a diet, it is NOT a short term quick fix but it is a consistent and steady approach to help you address your relationship with food in a way that allows you to enjoy food in a healthy and guilt free way!

 

This will be a long term, sustainable basis. You will learn to build a foundation of resilience and persistence  where you feel in control of what you eat and how much you eat. You will also learn to manage your emotional wellbeing and self esteem, regardless of your weight, otherwise weight loss comes under extreme pressure, where you also believe that it is responsible for your level of happiness and wellbeing.

 

It is often a case of not believing that you can actually lose the weight and maintain a healthy weight, that spirals into a learned helplessness where you then give up….until the next spurt of energy. If diets actually worked, the diet industry should be shrinking (excuse the pun), when in actual fact, it is increasing year on year.

Losing weight is not about having something magical happen to you, so you suddenly don’t have an appetite for over eating or unhealthy foods. It is about you understanding how you can feel in control of what you eat and believe you can do it.

 

It is about you building sustainable psychological resources that allow you to make healthy choices, because you really want to. It is about putting in effort and understanding as to how you can achieve this. It is very much about consciously understanding what you need to do to bud healthy belief systems around food and portion sizes.

 
What to expect?

You will learn to build the belief systems and resilience to feel in control of what you eat and how much you eat. Anyone caught up in the weight loss spiral, don’t really trust themselves around certain foods and don’t believe that they will be able to resist. This is an extremely unhelpful way of processing food and eating, as it is something that we are confronted with on a daily basis, generally at least 3 times a day. You want to, mentally, be in a strong position, where you belief you will be able to manage what you eat, without the negativity and doubt about your ability to have a healthy relationship with food.

You will also learn to take hold of your self esteem and understand what you need to do to feel fantastic about yourself and manage that independently of your weight.

  • You will understand the difference between emotional hunger and physiological hunger

  • You will still eat the foods you enjoy eating – NO calorie counting

  • You will enjoy a new relationship with food

  • You will feel in control of food as opposed to feeling like food is controlling you
