Despite spending what seems to be a lifetime dieting, many of us just don’t seem to be able to lose weight. Our meal plan may be paleo and our exercise regime punishing, but our body remains, stubbornly, at that same weight on the scale.
What do we do? Well, a very wise man once said that if we want to achieve a different result we must be willing to do something differently, otherwise diet insanity may be our fate. For this we need to reframe how we look at excess weight.
This is crucial because how we view something ultimately determines how we will deal with it. We view weight as the problem, but weight itself is not the true problem: it is merely a symptom. Treating weight as the problem through systematic dieting is the same as taking a painkiller and then never expecting to get a headache again. Excess weight is a symptom of body imbalance. Correct this imbalance and you’ll solve the problem and relieve yourself of the symptom in the process.
