Subliminal messages are a powerful way to change the way you think about certain things in your life and to change the behavior that you’re hot very happy with, but without making a conscious effort that will follow them, subliminals will only get you so far.

Why Listening to Subliminal Audios Only Isn’t Enough to Lose Weight?

Weight loss is a tricky game: if you want to gain and keep the desired weight, you need to make some lasting changes to the way you live right now: you need to eat healthy foods not only during 30 or 60 days, but for the rest of your life; you need to adopt regular physical activity as a part of who you are, not some temporary activity needed to attain your current goal.

In order to do all of this, your mind needs to change. You won’t get very far if you keep viewing healthy nutrition as a chore and exercise as time-drainer. You need to change the way you feel about all the little daily activities required for weight loss, and you have to find a way to make these changes permanent.

Subliminal messages that contain positive affirmations which help you to strengthen your positive mindset about the process are a great place to start – but they won’t do all the work for you. Why?

Well, our mind is another tricky thing. You know that the reason why subliminal messages work is because they bypass the barrier of our conscious mind end enter directly to the subconscious – in a way, we are tricking our mind into receiving the messages that will re-write its current programming.

But our mind is stubborn, and our old, negative thinking patterns die hard. The old thinking patterns were making us avoid the gym and make excuses not to eat healthy food. Naturally, these patterns are followed by suitable actions: we were running in the opposite direction of everything that our mind saw as “me no likey”.

That’s why, if we want the new patterns to stick, we need to make a conscious effort and follow the new thoughts and beliefs that we want to build with the actions that will confirm it: we need to show to our mind that we truly want to change. We need to commit to healthy eating and regular exercising and we need to follow through with our actions.

Only then will we be able to create lasting changes, changes that will stick. Subliminals are a way in which our brain can meet us half way, but we have to do the other half.

In short, in order to be sure that we will lose weight for good, we need to do everything that we can to ensure success. We need to show to our mind that we believe we’re able to make the shift and that we will do what it takes. Think of subliminal audios as the aid that instills the “good will” into our mind, and the next time you should go to the gym – go! Your brain will know how to appreciate it.
