Can you think your­self slim?

Oxygen - - Move -

Re­search says yes. Ac­cord­ing to a study from the Uni­ver­sity of Ply­mouth and Queens­land Uni­ver­sity, weight loss can be boosted by five times with the use of a men­tal tech­nique known as func­tional im­agery train­ing (FIT). FIT makes use of multi-sen­sory im­agery, teach­ing clients how to come up with their own men­tal pic­tures of what change might look and feel like to them and how it might be achieved and main­tained. Us­ing FIT gave peo­ple the con­fi­dence to achieve their goals, which re­searchers be­lieve is be­cause men­tal im­agery is more emo­tion­ally charged than other types of thought.
