By now, everyone knows the drill - whether you want to lose 10 pounds or 20, decrease your calories and get more exercise. Every year, we set out to do just that. We get on a diet, pay for a gym membership, and resolve to stick to healthy habits.

Multiple studies indicate that while many people succeed in short-term weight loss, they struggle to keep the pounds off. The statistics are sobering - 80% of people who lose a significant amount of weight regain it within a year.

Psychologists have discovered why it's difficult to stick to healthy habits long enough to lose weight and keep it off. Based on a recently developed framework, Cognitive-behavioral therapy for weight loss, it's proven that the only way to get yourself to adopt positive, long-lasting habits is to change how you think.

The BetterMe team discovered that successful weight loss is not just about being motivated and signing up for yet another program. People who repeatedly fail at losing weight and keeping it off are unable to get past negative thought patterns.

The most important asset such people need are cognitive skills. Fuelled by this realization, the program creators selected a psychology-based approach to weight loss that is more effective than any other.

How A Psychology Shift Guarantees Weight Loss Success

This psychology-powered approach focuses on identifying negative thought patterns, then replacing them with more positive thoughts. The technique not only helps manage weight loss, but can significantly improve one's quality of life.

Research has shown that even when people are able to lose weight, they struggle with social situations because they haven't developed cognitive skills needed to cope with food cravings and control their eating habits. CBT addresses these issues head-on by teaching people how to maintain focus and control their thinking.

This therapy approach leads to greater motivation and self-esteem, which are key factors in long-term success of any weight management initiative. More specifically, this approach has the following benefits:

  • Triggering positive thoughts that lead to positive actions
  • Overcoming negative thinking to lower cortisol and boost your body’s fat burning abilities
  • Reframing long held fears to reduce procrastination and keep you focused on the goal.
