Is how you eat affecting your body composition more than what you eat? Studies suggest that, yes, where diets fall short to produce long-term health (weight loss) benefits, intuitive eating practices are picking up the slack and providing real, sustainable results. So why are we still collectively struggling in bodies we don’t like? How can we make intuitive eating work for us? These are important questions, and in this article I’ll provide some answers. The results of intuitive eating are slaying long-term calorie restriction and slowly proving that the only truly effective way to long-term health is through re-establishing close connection between the mind and body.
Ever wonder why some people are effortlessly slim while others can’t lose weight any way or how? Why do we oftentimes blame “genetics” when only 5% of overweight people are genetically predisposed? There is a major contributing factor, which is largely inherited from family, that is so complex and multifaceted it is almost impossible to study given current research methods: the unconscious mind. Subconscious mind reprogramming can play a major role in changing body shape, losing weight and dramatically increasing energy levels.
Body Recomposition isn’t about weight loss. To be honest, losing weight should never have been identified as a goal. You can dramatically change your body composition without losing weight. “Weight loss” was never about weight, it’s always been about losing fat and gaining muscle. What people actually want to achieve is ideal body composition; it’s about health, it’s about how you feel and how you move in your body — it’s about the uniquely ideal fat-to-muscle ratio your bone structure is meant for. Maybe that’s why the weight loss industry has got many of their prescriptions for body recomp all wrong: they never had the right vision to begin with.
