Dr. Fabrizio Manzini says that meditation can act as a brilliant aid for weight loss. He argues for the power of thought to be the best medicine involved. He says that positive thinking rewires the brain to respond to stimuli in different ways. Similar to hypnosis, while meditating you can avert yourself to harmful food and end up conditioned not to want it. Another method which might be more universally appealing is to each whatever you want, and condition yourself to believe that what you are eating is not harming you. He says that combining this with a powerful 10 minute workout is the path to weight loss. This 10 minute workout, he says, is proven to be more effective than hours of ineffective attempts.
Meditating for just 15 minutes a day, which is the minimal effective dose (MED) for meditation, can help you see yourself in a different way. The power of thought assumes the mind is directly related to the body and can actually persuade it to lose weight and react to food in a different way. Combine the 15 minutes of meditation with the MED of exercise, that’s just 25 minutes out of your day for a better, healthier figure. That is all assuming that the power of thought is as strong as Dr. Manzini says it is. He says that the mind must program the body to receive all food in a positive way rather than a way which is negative. This shift in perception helps the person eating to lose weight.
Dr. Manzini says that his method is the way of the future and that it is beginning to have some scientific weight behind it, thanks to the research of medical doctors. The method of meditation in question is a traditional one. This ancient art has always been known to beneficial for the mind and the body alike, giving some evidence for the old philosophical question about the ties between the two objects. However, even though it is an ancient art, it is now being modernized. It is being applied in ways which are relevant to modern day life, such as the burning issue of weight loss, which has been perpetuated by the self-perception of women when presented with figures in the media. Could it be that there is an ancient cure to such a modern problem? The research will explain when it is released.
