Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) October 01, 2008 -- In preparation for the upcoming holiday season, full of events and gatherings that involve food, author and world renowned hypnotist Joshua Seth (www.joshuaseth.com) offers consumers a few "industry insider tips" for keep off those extra holiday pounds while still enjoying the festivities.
"New Year's 'weight loss' resolutions are pointless. Everybody makes them and almost no one keeps them. Instead of going through this hollow ritual year after year why not take a pro-active approach to eating during the holidays," quipped Seth. "When you change the way you think about food and eating, you can still eat all your favorite foods, you'll just become more satisfied with less of them."
Seth, who has worked with individuals from every age and background creating strategies for a healthier more sustainable approach to weight loss, suggests a "Three M" approach for keeping off that extra turkey fat while still enjoying the holidays:
â¢Mentality: Don't focus all your attention on food and eating, which is what you actually want to minimize in your mind. What you focus on expands, so focusing on foods you should avoid during the holidays is counterproductive. Instead, think about other enjoyable holiday elements, and make food a secondary focus.
â¢Moderate: Don't deprive yourself of foods you love. Instead, balance the foods that are good for you with the splurges. Chances are, if you completely avoid something you crave you'll end up going overboard.
â¢Mate: Partner with someone who will support your commitment to eating wisely. People can exert a strong influence to overeat during the holidays, especially if that's what they do themselves. Keep good company and benefit from the power of positive influence.
