Most of us launch a weight loss program when we're at Brain State 5 and highly motivated (often by health issues) to lose weight. It's then that the latest diet seems appealing or at the very least, loses its "ick factor."

The purpose of Brain Based Health is to make that diet more appealing, healthy eating more joyful, and most of all keep the weight off. By decreasing physiological stress, we stop that "Stress Eating Triangle" from spinning off chemicals that make us gain weight and feel lethargic, depressed, and hungry.

A new study conducted by researchers at Tufts University analyzed data from a one-year weight loss program and year four follow-up. Participants who regained the weight were compared to those who maintained weight. Maintaining weight loss was better than regaining for all risk factors. Maintainers who kept off ≥75% of weight originally lost had the greatest benefit.

The significance of this major study? Weight loss is hard, so pair up your favorite food plan with the EBT tools to promote lasting results.

Imagine yourself not only losing weight but having freedom from the issues of eating and weight. That is something you can have, but it takes training your brain to get from stress to joy, again and again, until finally, you are free.
