Permanent weight loss requires understanding thoughts. Thoughts drive emotions, actions and inevitably your results. Evaluating thoughts critically, challenging fixed false beliefs and being intentional with new thoughts are key components of getting results, including permanent weight loss. In this four-part podcast series, I discuss the thought model in-depth. During this episode, I provide an overview of the theoretical model called the Thought Model. The next episodes will focus on (1) thought downloads, which help you critically evaluate thoughts, (2) being intentional with your thoughts, and (3) planning for the future.
