If you are like me, you know how to lose weight, it’s simple eat less of the wrong foods and exercise more. If you are even more like me, you have tried every fad diet and joined countless gyms but have never been able to maintain the momentum to consistently lose weight in a healthy way. I would lose weight then go back to what I was doing and put it back on plus some. At one point I was nearly 18 Stone, I’m 6 foot 4, so people would tell me I could carry it but I was unhappy, I thought I had tried everything then I discovered NLP and a technique called Chunking.
Don’t worry Chunking isn’t an extreme purging technique and it doesn’t just apply to losing weight but for the purpose of this post I’ll explain it in a weight loss context. I realised that my problem was that the thought of cutting out everything I thought was nice (Fattening) and never having them again was just to big for me to commit to. Because I couldn’t commit to it 100% I couldn’t maintain it and would slip back to my old habits. Chunking is about breaking a large problem down into smaller components and dealing with each of the smaller components separately.
I first got myself incredibly motivated to get me in the right frame of mind and then started breaking my bad eating habits down into each area. For example, if I had a biscuit I would finish the pack so I started there. I committed to not have another biscuit and used NLP to reinforce this change. After I hadn’t eaten or even wanted a biscuit for 6 weeks, I moved onto chocolate, I haven’t had a Biscuit or Chocolate since 2008 and I am eating healthier and feeling better than I have ever in my life. Below is a picture of me and my wife Patricia 5 years ago and a picture of me with my daughter Daisy taken last week while on holidays. I hope you can see the difference.
Before – 2008
After – Present day
