The main problem with your past efforts to lose weight is you've been looking in the wrong place. You've been searching for answers outside yourself. You've turned to Richard Simmons, Denise Austin, and doctors in white lab coats. You've conned yourself into believing that somehow they knew more than you, that they had more wisdom than your very own body.
Through proper breathing, you learn to tune into your body. Breathing builds a bridge between your mind and your body. The two must become one. Most dieters wage all-out war on their bodies, despising them because they refuse to stay in line. Consequently, there's no harmony, no union - just this angry, never-ending tug-of-war. We blame our bodies for everything. We look in the mirror and feel sick, desperately wanting to trade them in for a different model. Consequently, we become cut off from our bodies. It's us against them. No wonder we can't lose weight. Maybe it's time to call a truce. Maybe it's time to do something radical, something like giving your body a little credit. Maybe, instead of constantly fighting it, you should actually sit down and invite it in for coffee.
