Losing weight is 80 percent mental and 20 percent physical. Most people spend a great deal of time debating which diet is best and arguing the merits that distinguish one plan from another. Not enough time, however, is spent “training the brain” to take on one of life’s toughest journeys—the journey of weight loss. I have worked with thousands of people who have struggled and succeeded in their weight-loss efforts, and I have learned a tremendous amount from their personal experiences. Each person has talked enthusiastically about the most critical piece of their success being something you might find surprising: mental preparation. That is why I’ve written THE 4 DAY DIET, a diet that begins with something I call Induction, and which is given to you here as THE 4 DAY DETOX.
Lack of mental preparation before beginning a weight-loss program is the first and biggest mistake people make before starting on their journey. If you don’t get your mind in the right place, it will only work against you, like an anchor dragging behind a boat that is trying to move forward in the water. But pull up that anchor—get your mind ready for what’s to come—and that boat will go forward full force.
I have discussed privately and publicly the importance and advantage of mastering the psychology of weight loss. Unfortunately, discussion of the mind’s role in getting thin and fit has largely been absent in popular diet books. The mental game is largely ignored because everyone is eager to focus on carbs and calories and exercise regimens. Make no mistake, carbs and calories and exercise are vital to weight loss, but focusing on them before focusing on the mental side of weight loss is like putting the cart ahead of the horse. Your mind will lead you in your battle of the bulge, and your body will execute the mind’s strategy. THE 4 DAY DIET is a simple, straightforward guide that will help you understand how to set your goals, how to get and stay motivated, and how to resist the temptations that will threaten to derail your journey.
I have configured THE 4 DAY DIET plan in segments of days that allow you to eat a variety of different foods and prevent you from becoming bored and restless, pitfalls that often lead people to abandon those diet programs that ask you to eat the same thing every day. The foods in THE 4 DAY DIET eating plan are tasty, inexpensive, and easy to find. Nothing is packaged or fake or full of chemicals. You can easily buy what you need at your local grocery store and get prepared to make small changes that will deliver tremendous results.
This special electronic detox diet from complete THE 4 DAY DIET is called the INDUCTION MODULE. It will detox your body, get you to lose weight fast, and focus your mind on what you can do when you commit to change.
