When it's all a guessing game of "what to eat" and "when to eat" and "how much to eat", it's hard to see yourself succeed. It seems impossible to plan when it's all left up in the air... it becomes a guessing game.
We're told to just "eat mindfully", but if we were all successful at eating mindfully, we would never have gained weight to begin with. :)
So, instead, I will show you EXACTLY what to eat. Exactly what works. I leave nothing up to chance, nothing in the air.
Instead, I needed specifics, so I am giving YOU specifics.
I needed direction, so I am giving YOU direction.
I needed "Do exactly this and you will lose ten pounds," so I am giving you the same thing!
That is how our minds operate. We don't want to leave it up to chance again... we need a plan, and we need a plan that WORKS.
