Weight Loss Psychology Answers Obesity Questions


QUEENSLAND, Australia January, 2012 – Australians who indulged during the holidays should not delay in getting back into a healthy routine. Research has shown that the holiday period piles on an extra 360 grams of fat that stays long after Santa’s visit*. Weight gained over Christmas is likely to still be there for the next festive season – creating an annual cycle of weight gain and increased risk of insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

“90 – 95% of all diets fail because they do not effectively address the neuro-bio-psycho-social foundations underlying yo-yo dieting and obesity including emotional eating, stress eating, and food addiction,” said Fit Minds and Bodies Managing Director Kellee Waters who is a qualified Psychologist, Hypnotherapist, Food Addiction and Obesity Specialist and Fitness Coach. Kellee has extensive experience and knowledge of the psychological factors involved in obesity but it is her own private battle with childhood and adulthood obesity that motivates her and inspires her clients.

Kellee explains, “TV shows like the Biggest Loser represent the idea that emotional eating and stress eating are simple things to conquer with willpower, discipline, diet and exercise and if you don’t, you are a failure. People may have an addiction and they need to slowly and effectively change that addiction – cold turkey is NOT the way to help most food addicts as it will only cause relapse and bingeing. To lose weight they need real knowledge, skills and tools for lifelong change without having to flog themselves in a gym and go back into their failure mentality.”

Weight loss psychology with a neuro-bio-psycho-social focus, is the answer to many overweight Australians’ problems. At Fit Minds & Bodies, a multi-focussed lifestyle management company, losing weight is tackled using a holistic approach that not only addresses problems associated with weight gain and poor eating habits but also areas such as lack of motivation and activity, family stresses and a vast array of other psychological factors associated with obesity and food addiction for both adults and children.
