The Golden Key

I love Take Shape for Life because it helps my clients with their emotional eating. Many programs play into that. But TSFL really takes the obsessing out of figuring out what you’re going to eat, and takes people out of the craving place that makes them vulnerable to overeating.

I’m reading Awakening the Giant by Anthony Robbins. In there he mentions overeating frequently enough that it stands out. He says it’s a core value issue. I’m eager to hear more about his explanation on this because, while I love his work, I’m not sure I’m aligned with where he’s going.

I believe that the dynamics that tie people into food are complicated and interwoven. It’s not just the food industry, but it is the food industry. It’s not just genetics, but it is genetics. It’s not just nurture, but nurture is definitely a factor. All of these threads weave together to make a blanket that it’s easy to hide under while snarfing down a pack of Oreos.

The beauty of the TSFL tools, though, is that they give you a chance to get a grip on all these dynamics. In Phase I, they take you out of craving mode and put you into fat-burning mode for efficient weight transformation. In Phase 2, you learn how to mimic the nutritional footprint with grocery store foods, and identify what substances trigger cravings in you. In Phase 3, you take the habits of health you have learned, practice them daily, and ideally, pass on what you have learned to others in your world.
