The Skinny Persons Default Switch

The Skinny Switch. It’s a funny title for a page, don’t you think? But, after fifteen years, and having treated well over a thousand overweight clients, I really believe it exists, at least in some form. I am confident it is one of traits adopted, maybe unknowingly, by those almost ‘God-like’ people, who stay naturally thin, regardless of what goes in their mouths. I was attending a Psychology Conference at Warsaw University when I first heard about it, and it piqued my interest.

Where is Your Switch Set?

If you read any of the hundreds of articles about French Women, and how they maintain their weight, you may observe some parallels. So, let me try to explain what I mean about your ‘Default Switch’. Then, if that grabs your imagination, I will go on and give you a few pointers on how you can go about changing yours. Not from an On to Off, but changing it from a Yes to No! So, my guess is that, if you are struggling to lose weight, then your Default Switch could be stuck in the ‘Yes’ position, and that is not where you want it to be.

No or Yes

Firstly, let me explain that changing your psychological default switch from one position to the other requires a considerable amount of both effort and energy. That in itself is half the problem. So, as an example, let’s imagine you’re on a diet. You are making an effort to succeed, then a group of friends call you to say they are going out tonight to your favourite restaurant. They really want you to join them, because you know the food and wine will be amazing, as will the company. Do you say Yes or No?

Just Dream for a Moment

Just relax and dream for a few minutes, what would it be like to be completely 100% in control. To effortlessly say No whenever you wanted, without having to think about it. For the first time in your life, to think about yourself and what you want instead of pleasing others. So, instead of saying Yes and giving in to every request, you just stopped, and selected whichever option served your best interests. Does it sound like a dream? No, it’s just about flipping your default switch.

It is Hard to Change

Your switch has probably been stuck in the Yes Position for many years. So, what’s it like living a life in a permanent Yes phase? Well, it’s like this, “Martin, do you want to come out tonight? Yes! Do you want a pizza? Yes! Do you fancy a glass of wine? Yes, in fact I’ll have two! Martin, how about going away for a weekend? Yes! It was always Yes. Because Yes was my default switch. It never needed any thinking about, it was automatic, it was painless, it was easy, just say Yes to everything. Martin was always up for fun, and pleasing other people.

Yes Was Easy, No Was Hard

Then, out of the blue, I decided to change, to see what it would be like, to have No as my default. To be honest, I had to use every little bit of energy in my body to flip that switch to the No position, to make No my new default setting. It is harder than it sounds, but you can do it. From then on, whenever anyone asked me something, I would in most cases just automatically say No. Then they, or I, had to work very hard to get it to a Yes. As a result it took the pressure away, in fact it often put the pressure on them.

Whilst flipping the switch needs a lot of effort, that is also a positive, as once you have re-positioned it, it takes a lot of effort to flip it back again. But be careful, you may become someone your friends describe as boring, always saying no. However, if that it takes, even temporarily, for you to achieve your target weight, then maybe, just maybe, that’s OK. Most French women seem to be able to control their weight, almost effortlessly. They often do what is best for them: ‘will saying yes, take me closer to my goal, or move me further away?’.

Stop Saying Yes!

Whilst changing the position of my Default Switch helped me on my weight loss journey, it also changed many other facets of my life. I find that I think about myself a little more now. Before, if I had decided to have a few nights in and catch up on my sleep, and just chill, I would often find myself just giving in, as soon as someone invited us out. If anyone asked me to take on some extra work, I used to say Yes! Whereas now I think about the consequences, and make a more considered decision.

Changing your Default setting from Yes to No will serve you well in many areas of your life. So, make sure you commit to changing the default to where you want it to be. Try it; like I say, it takes more effort than you may think, but the results come very quickly. Once you have mastered it the whole thing becomes effortless. Give yourself seven days, you may be surprised. It will certainly allow you to take decisions that benefit you, and take you on the route you want to follow, rather than always pleasing others.

Overweight People Are Not Lazy

Being overweight, having an unhealthy relationship with food, is predominantly a psychological issue; a learned behaviour… because people are not born obese. Rarely are people overweight because they are lazy or lacking in willpower. But people are rarely overweight because they are lazy or lacking in willpower; the issue goes much deeper. As a result, they simply need a ‘Psychological Reset.’ Alison, photo below lost 70 pounds with Martin and Marion’s treatment.

And so, we will ask you: “Do you eat when you are bored, stressed, tired, lonely, depressed, sad, to reward yourself, or maybe just to please someone else?” Then we will help you to change your mindset around food. You can experience the new fully downloadable weight treatment today. Hello Magazine featured Martin and Marion’s work.

We will help you

We will also help you to make simple changes in your other thought processes… How much better could your relationship with food be, if we taught your subconscious mind how to effortlessly replace the word “want” with the word “need”? For example, instead of hearing the waiter asking, “Do you want fries with that?” without thinking you process the question as, “Do you need fries with that?” You can watch a short animated video explaining Want and Need at the bottom of this page.
