Have you started on your EFT weight-loss journey and find the weight not shifting like it would if you were dieting or doing boot-camps? Well, to lose weight, you need to eat less harmful foods, a moderate amount of healthful foods, and exercise more. When you first start your EFT journey of releasing old and unhelpful attachments, you are being prepared for that. You see, when people simply change their food habits without enjoying doing so, they end up feeling deprived, and more often than not, eventually put the weight back on. But you may find that you are releasing tension right now and feeling more confident rather than losing weight as yet. Trust me, the weight can certainly come off, as I know from personal experience.

Releasing tension releases the need to overeat or eat rubbish. As well as releasing tension and feeling more worthwhile, EFT can de-program your thinking about “food” and “drink”. The idea is that by slowly de-programming you from years of being hypnotised by well-meaning loved ones or the omnipresent “food” advertising, that certain "foods" are yummy, that you must finish the food on your plate, that you must eat certain things for breakfast such as cereal, and that exercise is boring, or some such variation thereof, you will be in tune with what your body really wants and not feel the need to eat as much and feel excited about exercising more.

Take for example feeling hungry and thinking you need to eat, when you are simply thirsty and have been conditioned not to drink whilst eating or conditioned that water is not as good for you as fizzy drinks or juice. This programming has ancient sources and modern twists via advertising and marketing and social beliefs. I think back in the day when we were cavemen and women, water was not necessarily plentiful, and our bodies are programmed to adapt and have anything with water in it. Somehow in modern times, this instinct has survived, as our DNA is not much different from our cave-woman fore-mothers. However, we have plentiful water and too much of stuff that contains water but the excess of which is not good for us. An excess of water-containing fruit, for example, was not as easily available to our ancestors.

You can also tap for drinking more water. Put a glass of water in front of you and rate the situation on a scale of 100% (the scale I use for positives), where 100 was that you would like to drink it and 0 was that you would prefer another drink or a piece of fruit. Tap until you prefer the water. This exercise works best when you are not physically hungry, as then the body would naturally want to have something more nutrient-dense.

As for committing to losing weight with EFT, put in your diary an hour 2-5 days a week for tapping. If you find you cannot do that, then tap:

"Even though part of me is resistant to committing to this, in case it doesn't work, like perhaps other things didn't in the past, I deeply love and accept myself"
"Fear of it not working"

"Even though part of me is afraid of commitment or finds it boring, I remember that every minute of my life, I am committed to breathing, and that has never harmed me. It had been safe. It has not been a chore. I do it without even thinking."
"I already commit to many things, like breathing, and that is safe and OK"

Tap the above every day for as long as you can until you feel that committing to your program is safe, ordinary, fun, and OK.
