My Online Weight Loss Consultant. Do you need a Diet Specialist – So would you benefit from having a discussion with a weight loss Expert or Specialist before you start the next diet? Will it make any difference? Will your weight loss attempts be more successful if you do? Maybe it will ensure that any weight loss is permanent. Or maybe you’re thinking, why bother, what is a weight loss expert or specialist anyway.

To the people who say, why bother, I always ask “just how successful have your weight loss attempts been in the past.  Did you arrive at your target weight, has the weight loss been permanent”. If their answers are of a positive nature, then no, they don’t need any assistance or guidance. However if the answer is no, then sorry, but you really should talk to someone before you jump in to the next diet.

My Weigh Less

You have probably read or heard it all before, as we all have but let’s just confirm it in writing. The average person will undertake 20+ diets in their life time. The average life time spend will exceed £20,000; wow…that’s an awfully large amount of money. I know many people question the amount, but it has been documented by many independent studies.

The sad part about these statistics is that 98% of people will fail in their weight loss attempts. Sadly they will end up weighing the same or more than they did when they started. So with that amount of hard earned money at stake along with the years of failed attempts, and possibly being depressed about it, then maybe there is a place for the Weight Loss/Diet Specialist.

What is a Weight Loss Consultant

But, what exactly is a weight loss specialist. Is it the same as a diet specialist? In reality they are probably the same person. If your interested in knowing the difference between someone being labeled as an Expert as opposed to being a Specialist, then Google it. The answer is a little vague, it seems to be a grey area. But generally both are presumed to be experts in their fields.

A specialist is “someone who limits his or her studying or work to a particular area of knowledge, and who is an expert in that area.”

So then, who is a specialist in the weight loss arena, is it the lady who comes to the Church Hall once every two weeks to do the weigh-ins for the local Slimming Club? Or, maybe it’s the Nutritionist who advertises her services in the local paper…What about your doctor; surely he is a specialist you can rely on.

Unfortunately doctors are often not the best person for you to have a conversation with about weight loss. As an example doctors in the US receive virtually no training regarding weight management. It is stated that 50% of US states don’t require medical professionals to have any training nutrition. A recent study found that doctors spend less than 10 hours training on obesity during their four years of medical school. Doctors in the UK are in a similar situation.

It is believed that the lack of sufficient medical training and education often results in many medical professionals simply recommending weight-loss surgery, or other expensive treatments, when in many circumstances this is not the correct solution.

So who are we, and why are we described as weight loss specialists. People often use the terms, Experts or Specialists to describe us, Martin and Marion Shirran. But why? Because, we are the joint authors of the two bestselling, books on the subject, both published globally by leading ‘Mind and Body’ publishers, Hay House, in New York. The books were endorsed by professor Windy Dryden of Goldsmiths University in London, along with professor Zimbardo of Stanford University in San Francisco.

So our advice, it is probably exactly what you would expect. Before you commence on your next weight loss regime, ask some questions, and get all the answers before you start. After all it is your health and your hard-earned money that’s at stake. Ask, or find out, what experience the principles of the plan actually have. Also check that you are able to read legally verified case studies with before and after photos of their past clients. Ask if the treatment has been independently reviewed by others and the media.

Psychology Focused

Our approach to ensure our clients achieve permanent weight loss is psychology focused. No diets or exercise, yes it is different but it works. Traditional dieting works for some people, some of the time. Or does it? Yes, diets do work, but only for a while. Why? Because they fail to get the root cause of the issues that a person has with food. They also fail because they are temporary.

What is a Weight Loss Consultant

In any medical training, one of the first things students learn is: “Never treat the symptoms of an illness, always treat the cause”. So, don’t treat the pain in the patient’s chest with an Aspirin, find the cause. After all, the patient may be having a heart attack, so fix that.

My Weigh Less

What is a Weight Loss Consultant

Treating the cause is the focal point of our approach when helping someone reverse their situation of being overweight or obese. Telling someone to follow a liquid only diet, or even surgically inserting a band around the stomach, can never permanently solve the problem. The person has at some level a food addiction or other psychological issues.

What is a Weight Loss Consultant

During the My Weigh Less treatment as an example, we ask our clients. Do you ever eat when you’re tired, sad, lonely, depressed, bored, or maybe to please someone else. If they answer yes, then that’s the first thing we fix. Because of course, a restrictive diet or surgery, can never fix Depression, as an example.

One area of MWL that continues to gain the interest of the media is the mental ‘re-setting’ component of the treatment around the words ‘WANT’ and NEED. Basically the programme uses a number of approaches, including Clinical Hypnosis to reprogram a person’s unconscious reaction to the word Want, replacing it with the word Need.

What is a Weight Loss Consultant

Let us give you an example. You are sitting in a restaurant with friends, when you order your meal; say a gourmet burger as an example, the waitress says “Do you WANT fries with that” but following the MWL treatment almost unconsciously you are more likely to hear “Do you Need fries with that”. The word Want will be Replaced with Need. It may sound like a small thing, but it’s a fact, that at a cognitive level we react to those words very differently.

Its often true that people completing a traditional diet, or even under taking weight loss surgery, whilst leaving  their psychological issues un-rectified, will suffer with problems around having an unhealthy relationship with food for the rest of their lives. That of course is the main reason for the dreaded ‘Regain’ or ‘Weight Creep’ that many people suffer with following virtually all surgical weight loss procedures.

What is a Weight Loss Consultant

The MWL approach was designed to identify the issues and then almost undertake a ‘reset’ of a person’s thinking. Resulting in them eating and enjoying food when they are hungry and then just stopping when they are satisfied regardless of if their plate is empty or not.

Below is a selection of weight-loss tips that everyone can start using straight away. And, if you enroll in the My Weigh Less Course, you will learn many more of our helpful tips and techniques about how to achieve successful, permanent weight loss.

Tip No. 1 – Only Eat When You’re Hungry!

This has to be our number one, golden rule, when it comes to achieving successful weight loss. In our experience, most overweight people eat for many different reasons, other than physical hunger. But, if you allow your emotions to control your eating habits, then it is unlikely that you will be able to control your weight as a result. So, before you reach for anything to eat, stop and ask yourself first if you physically NEED to eat, or you just WANT to…

Tip No. 2 – Use a Smaller Plate!

You’ve probably heard this many times before, but it’s a fact that people who use larger plates tend to eat more food than those who eat from smaller plates. No doubt you know about the power of optical illusions. But are you aware of just how much more generous the same size portion of food appears, when presented on a smaller plate, instead of a larger one? Have a look at the image below. It’s known as the Delboeuf optical illusion. If you stick to our mantra, “always go for quality over quantity”, then you will definitely lose weight much more easily.

Delboeuf Optical Illusion

Tip No. 3 – Drink a Glass or Two of Water Before Your Meal!

Reduce your calorie intake by over 20%, with almost with no effort! Research results, published by Harvard Medical showed that people who drank two large glasses of water, just before eating, on average, consumed around 20% less food compared with when they didn’t drink anything before they ate. This is possibly as a result of the stretching and fullness sensation in the stomach.

Tip No. 4 – Eat Slowly and Mindfully!

A growing number of studies have consistently found a correlation between speed of eating and weight, so it is officially accepted now that faster eaters are definitely more likely to become overweight. Studies have also shown that people are much more likely to eat more when their eating is mindless, as opposed to mindful. So, make meal times an occasion by sitting down at a table, with no distractions. Then eat slowly and savour every mouthful. You will naturally eat less food and also find it easier to lose weight as a result!

Tip No. 5 – Stay Away From Sugar and Highly Processed Foods!

It’s a fact that sugar and highly processed foods have addictive properties! So much so, that many people find that once they start eating these foods, they literally can’t stop. And, of course, if you’re making such poor food choices, this in turn will make it almost impossible for you to lose weight. So, our advice is to choose healthy, unprocessed foods and limit the amount of sugar you consume. As a result, you will have far more control over how much you eat and also how much weight you can lose.

Tip No. 6 – Eat Your Favourite Foods on the Plate First!

You may not be aware of how important this tip is, but the order in which you eat your food can actually have a big impact on how much you consume! It’s quite common for overweight people to “save the best til last” when eating. In other words they only eat their favourite food right at the end. It’s not so surprising then, that they also tend to eat everything on their plate, regardless of how uncomfortably full they feel. Because, of course, they don’t want to miss out on the “best bit”!

top weight loss tips

However, our advice is to eat your favourite things first. Not only will you enjoy it more, but it’s also much easier to stop when you’ve eaten just the right amount and leave the rest on the plate.

You can read a full breakdown of all the components included in the treatment package on the Course Details page. There is also an explanation of the treatment on the Does This Work? page.
