"We cannot solve
Weight Loss - A Neurolinguistic Perspective by Andrew T. Austin
A live recording of a workshop by Andrew T. Austin exploring weight loss and obesity from a neurolinguistic perspective.
Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to psychotherapy and organizational change based on "a model of interpersonal communication chiefly concerned with the relationship between successful patterns of behaviour and the subjective experiences (esp. patterns of thought) underlying them" and "a system of alternative therapy based on this which seeks to educate people in self-awareness and effective communication, and to change their patterns of mental and emotional behaviour".
The co-founders, Richard Bandler and linguist John Grinder, believed that NLP would be useful in "finding ways to help people have better, fuller and richer lives". They coined the term "Neuro-Linguistic Programming" to emphasize their belief in a connection between the neurological processes ("neuro"), language ("linguistic") and behavioral patterns that have been learned through experience ("programming") and can be organized to achieve specific goals in life.
Weight Loss and NLP
"You cannot solve a problem with the same level of thinking that created it."
Shift your focus from the process (being heavy) to the outcome (being light and joyful).
