Naturally Slender Eating Strategy

Did you know that the average Americanís weight gain during the Holiday season is fifteen to twenty pounds? Would you like to have a sure-fire method of keeping that down to five pounds or less?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a methodology that lets us model successful strategies some people have. In the case of food, we have modeled a successful eating strategy. By contrast, one woman had an eating strategy that went like this: SEE food . . . EAT food. Itís no wonder she was 100 pounds overweight!

Toss out the other choices since theyíre not as satisfying, and use the one that feels best over time. If none of the available choices seems like it will feel good over time, youíve probably eaten enough and itís time to STOP EATING!

As you probably know, NLP can be used successfully to help people change their strategies for any number of things, such as eating, shopping, selecting jobs or relationship partners. Of course, just changing a strategy is not always whatís called for. Sometimes, a change is needed at the Beliefs or Identity level.
