Did you know that an NLP technique can help you maintain your weight?

Do you know someone who can eat whatever they want and never gain weight?
They probably never stand on the scale or worry about their weight, yet they always fit in their favorite jeans!
If I could show you a simple way to become naturally thin and healthy, would you be interested?
In this cheat sheet, you'll learn a simple NLP technique that lets you act like - and then become - the kind of person who easily maintains your ideal weight.
NLP means Neuro-Linguistic Programming because it reprograms the brain to create positive behaviors.
You may already know that NLP is a quick, effective way to change your life.
NLP works so well because it focuses intently on the SOLUTION rather than the problem.
When a person wants to lose weight, they often focus on what's "wrong" with them or the food or their body.
But what if you created a relentless focus on acting like a person who has never struggled with their weight?
You know, that annoying friend who never worries about her weight and always fits in her favorite jeans?
Connirae Andreas is one of those people (minus the annoying part). She's what we'll call a "naturally thin eater" because she automatically maintains her ideal weight without trying.
In her book, The Heart of the Mind, she outlines the internal processes that allow her to easily and automatically maintain her ideal weight - without using willpower.
Most naturally thin eaters wouldn't be able to explain the process because it happens automatically. They don't even understand what it's like to struggle with weight issues.
These are the people who say, "Why don't you just eat less?" because they don't understand it's just as automatic for you to struggle as it is for them to not struggle. (Don't worry - that's about to change.)
Because she's an expert NLP practitioner, Connirae was able to map out the exact process that lets her easily maintain her small size. Here's what she teaches.
How to think like a naturally thin eater:
1. Notice thoughts of food.
This could happen for ANY reason.
- It's 12:00 and that's when you usually eat.
- You smell bacon sizzling down the hall.
- Your co-worker just called you a jerk and now you want pizza.
- You're bored.
- You're walking through the kitchen and you always grab a snack when you walk through the kitchen.
2. Check-in with your stomach.
Ask, how will eating this make my stomach feel?
- Your stomach is up high, just below the sternum. If you feel hunger somewhere else it might be emotional hunger - not true physical hunger.
3. If I eat this, will I feel more comfortable or less comfortable?
Imagine eating it and notice how it makes your stomach feel.
4. If you'll feel more comfortable, then eat it and enjoy it.
Naturally thin eaters do NOT beat themselves up when they eat or stress out about how much they're eating.
Worrying keeps you overweight.
5. Keep checking in with your stomach.
After each bite ask, "Will another bite make my stomach feel more or less comfortable?"
This may seem like a lot of effort but it only takes a split second and you'll find it quickly becomes automatic.
Here's why this works: It puts you back in touch with your own body.
When you realize it's your own body telling you "I'm content now" it makes it easy to stop.
No willpower needed.
When I heard this technique I thought, "Yeah right, that wouldn't work for a person who is used to overeating."
I have NOT always been a naturally thin eater.
I used to obsess about food and my weight constantly. I gained and lost the same 60 pounds more times than I can count.
If someone had asked me, "How do you know it's time to overeat?" I would've said, "I don't know. It just happens automatically!"
I had done it so many times, it just happened by itself now.
When I used to binge eat, I WANTED my stomach to feel full. (At least I thought I did.) So I thought this wouldn't work.
Then, the day after I read Connirae's technique I noticed I only drank half my coffee. I reached for my coffee cup to take another sip and I felt weirdly compelled to ask myself,
"How will another sip make my stomach feel?"
When I imagined more coffee in my physical stomach, I realized it would feel LESS comfortable.
This made me think, "Duh, of course I don't want that coffee."
I poured the rest down the drain with zero reservations and I felt great about it.
I'd love to hear how this technique works for you!
