For any diet to be successful, we have to give less attention to food and more to our fat-causing thoughts.
By the Law of Attraction, you can’t get slender and beautiful by considering yourself fat and ugly. Tough but true.
If you hate and despise yourself in a world that has a low opinion of people who are overweight then you will create fat – and the food that creates fat will leap to your attention and clamour to be devoured - we know it does that, right?
If the world respected fat people and despised thin ones (as used to be the case in some countries where fat indicated wealth) then the odds are, you would be thin. It’s what you think and believe about yourself that is the key; not the food itself. If you need a cause to hate yourself, your weight is an easy target in a world full of yummy, addictive, sugary or salty foods.
And, of course, the more we worry about nutrition, the more cause for worry we attract too..
