Zouareg describes how everyone can learn and implement his method for mental motivation--what he calls our `core desire'--and then learn how to master the tools (visualization, meditation, affirmation) to keep on track with weight-loss goals. After readers understand and practice these tools, they learn some of the basics about nutrition and the Miraval way of healthy living. The book comes with an exercise plan developed by the author to shed unwanted pounds. According to Mr. Zouareg, consistent use of the mind body spirit method will keep the additional weight off forever.
But to truly test any self-help weight loss book, I knew that I had to bring it into my own life. I started with the creative visualization, then the meditation, and finally the affirmations. I admit that I felt more than a little silly saying the affirmations. Being a writer, I found I did best by saying them, and then writing them down in a journal.
I then read about the basics of nutrition and the 40/40/20×5 fat loss plan, and tried some of the sample recipes that were actually quite tasty. The vegetable omelet was a big hit in my household.
On to the exercise....I'm more of a couch potato, but oddly enough I enjoyed the stretching exercises, even found them relaxing. The more strenuous exercises...well, I'm still working on those. I see this more as a slow progression, one that will hopefully develop into a good habit. So, how much weight have I lost? 4.5 pounds in ten days.Read more ›
The diet suggestions are easy to prepare and use everyday ingredients. Helpful nutrition information is included so that we can all understand how to make the best food choices and become empowered to create meals that will support our fitness and health. On this diet you are allowed to eat regular meals and snacks and even to cheat! The exercise plan is a balanced program that takes just 24 minutes a day 5 days a week and includes cardio and strength training. The program is realistic for busy people.
As great as the diet and exercise plans are, the real strength of the program is in the mind. Nordine skillfully shows how it takes more than just a good plan to be successful. Becoming aware of our undermining thought patterns is the first step to changing them. Nordine demonstrates how to increase awareness, how to get out of negative thinking that focusses on what we don't want and turn instead to our core desires to develop positive motivation to get what we do want. Drawing on the wisdom of positive thinking and spiritual awareness, Nordine describes a mental fitness plan for success in attaining a desired weight, a healthy body or success in any area of life.
I asked myself what many will probably ask, and that is, HOW? Well, "Mind Over Body" describes in detail what Mr. Zouareg implemented in order to achieve all that he desired.
The key to being, having, and doing all that you desire starts with training the mind via positive self talk, visualization, and affirmation. Only when the mind is prepared can one truly manifest their core desire(s). After reading this fabulous book, I realized that it was not only about retraining the subconscious mind in order to become fitness, but becoming all that you truly desire to be.
Applying the steps and principals in "Mind Over Body" has changed the way I attack goals in my life. Most of us, if not all of us, have goals and aspirations that constantly resurface. These goals may or may not be true core desires and hence the "reburial" of these said goals. "Mind Over Body" explains how one should feel if these goals and aspirations are true core desires or just fleeting interests and gives you the steps and tools needed to manifest your desire. I will never feel or be the same again.
"Mind Over Body" is fantastically empowering, I strongly suggest the purchase of this book to all.
