The Top Six Diets of 2013
The Body Fat Solution
The Body Fat Solution isn’t a diet. Developed by Tom Venuto, natural bodybuilder, personal trainer, and founder of a fat-loss support website called “Burn the Fat Inner Circle,” the site’s central thesis focuses instead on the emotional, psychological, and social factors that sabotage the success of any eating regimen.
“One of the reasons guys struggle with their weight may be one they don’t want to admit—emotional eating,” Venuto says. “Emotional eating means eating for reasons other than hunger, whether it’s stress, grief, social pressure, or a desire for comfort or escape.” In his book, Venuto teaches dieters how to identify the emotional triggers and replace them through goal-setting, visualization, and social support.
One of the most effective training tools Venuto uses is self-image reprogramming. “The benefits of cognitive psychology on weight management can’t be overstated. You can train your unconscious mind to change automatic behaviors that prevent you from attaining whatever goal you’ve set. Peer-reviewed science supports the idea that mentally rehearsing, visualizing, and affirming your goals helps you achieve them,” he says.
Try this: Every day, sit quietly for 5–15 minutes and imagine not just the body you’ve resolved to build but also the steps you’ll take along the way. See yourself going to the gym. Rehearse being in a social situation and refusing unhealthy food. As Napoleon Hill said in his seminal book Think and Grow Rich (1937), “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
