Losing Weight Is Easy(keeping it off is difficult!)

Hello, I’m Rick Taylar, and this is Weight Loss Mindset!

Ever lost weight and then put it all back on again? 

It's like your own body is fighting against you? 

How can you win this struggle with yourself without too much suffering?

The most crucial time you need to be aware of when losing weight is just after you’ve lost some. Why? Because the body wants it back!

It’s not easy keeping off the weight after a diet. Most, if not all, people who lose weight stack it back on. The worst part is, they put on more weight. Isn’t that horrible?

Here’s the simple reason you regain your weight

Losing weight reduces your stored fat and energy stores. It sets off a chain reaction and triggers your hormones to let your brain know the amount of fat in the body is at a critical level. There’s a hormone called leptin.

Your fat cells make this hormone to decrease your appetite. So, of course, when you have less fat, the appetite suppression is lifted, and the cravings start.

Don’t give up. It’s not over just yet.

I know that all sounds like bad news when you desperately want to lose weight, but don’t leave feeling defeated just yet.

Change your mindset and realize the body isn’t sabotaging you. It’s only making you aware of what you’re up against. When you know what you’re up against, you can take measures to counteract the natural responses of the body, so you don’t regain your lost weight. You can do this using behavioral or environmental interventions.

Different kinds of foods and supplements reduce hunger and don’t contain lots of calories. Things like Protein-rich foods and fiber-rich foods. Try drinking enough water before every meal. Try eating slower over 20 minutes, so your body has time to feel satisfied.

There’s a great article called - 18 Science-Based Ways to Reduce Hunger and Appetite. I’ll give you a link in the show notes for this episode. Go to the website at weightlossmindset.co, and you’ll find it.

Some excellent nutritional supplements stimulate the brain to help suppress the appetite. They’re worth a try for that added support. I’ll make a note of the best ones for you in the show notes for this episode.


You’ve worked hard to lose some weight, and it’s starting to come back. Don’t panic and give up at this critical stage. Understand it’s merely your body’s natural response to the process. Don’t let your body win, though. You’re fighting against your body’s natural response. As you start losing weight, your calorie needs drop too.

Remember, if you were 200 pounds when you started and you’ve lost 20 pounds already, you must reduce your calorie intake considerably more than a person who began their diet at 180 pounds.
