Using Psychology to Lose Weight Because Dieting and Exercise Alone Don’t Work

This paper takes the position that because of the continuing high rate of weight-loss failure with the current standard formula, Diet + Exercise = Weight Loss, a new formula for weight loss is needed. It argues that losing weight, especially for women, is never just about the food. It is always about a woman’s psychology as well. Adherence to a weight-loss regimen and personal change are psychological matters that must be addressed by using psychology to lose weight. Dieting and weight loss as they are currently practiced are not only insufficient, but they require too much self-control and willpower, which has made the weight-loss process terribly arduous and ripe for failure. So in addition to the primary goal of losing unwanted weight, there needs to be the equally important goal of using the least possible amount of self-control and willpower to effect change. With the goal of making the weight-loss process much less dependent on willpower and self-control, the paper then points out how to implement this goal. It takes traditional weight-loss issues and, using the principles and practices of psychology, illustrates how to successfully resolve these issues more automatically, and without the need for such self-defeating effort.

In many cases, attending physicians dispense anti-depressants, (some times like candy) such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) as a means to treat their symptoms of depression or anxiety. What these patients are actually experiencing is problems with the neurotransmitters in their brains, most notably Dopamine, Epinephrine, Norepinephrine, GABA and Glutamate. SSRI’s block neurotransmitter pathways and often result in a vast array of side effects
