If you have been struggling to lose weight your whole life, maybe you’ve “tried everything” and nothing seems to work for you, you have been focusing on the effect and not the cause level.
You may be focusing on your diet and exercise before you focus on your mindset and developing the self-discipline it takes to make a strategy a long-term habit. Temporary change leads to temporary results. Mindset is critically important to healthy sustainable lifestyle changes to lose weight and truly reduce your risk for diseases like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and dementia.

[05:21] Superpower #1: Consistency. I’ve learned that without consistency, you have nothing. If you want to get stronger, going to the gym or doing push-ups ONCE will not get you there. If you want to eat healthier, buying better options at the grocery store ONCE won’t get you there. Here are 4 steps to add consistency to your life.
[10:54] The importance of consistent reflection to lose weight and improve your health.
[12:08] Brief overview of the 3 types of reflection that I learned during my residency, continue to use, and teach to my clients and course members.
[13:10] Practical example about how to eat healthy when eating at a restaurant. Reflection for action: Look at the menu ahead of time and decide what you will eat and drink, drink plenty of water and eat healthy throughout the day, anticipate road-blocks like what you plan to say when the waiter or someone else at the table offers dessert.
