Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) facilitates behavior change, breaks bad habits, and increases motivation to achieve weight loss goals.
How many times have you thought the following?
- I already blew my diet today. I will start again tomorrow.
- I am just going to gain the weight back again anyway.
- I’ve tried to lose weight before and it never works. I’m not going to succeed this time either.
- I’ve been overweight my entire life. That will never change.
- I don’t have any self control.
- I stay on track during the week and then overeat on the weekend.
NLP is a powerful tool to change our programming and help us lose weight fast! In fact, NLP has been referred to as “magic” because some of the techniques can be done in less than 10 minutes with incredible, lasting results!
What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming?
Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP, was created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s and is now used by many famous people including Tony Robbins, Bill Gates, Tiger Woods, Oprah Winfrey, and Bill Clinton. NLP is based on the connection between our neurology, language, and behavior patterns. We are “programmed” at a very early age to believe certain things, think a certain way, behave a certain way, and even eat a certain way. These deeply ingrained attitudes, beliefs, values, and behaviors combined with our memories and past decisions make us who we are today and shape the way we experience the world.
Change is difficult because our subconscious mind is literally programmed a certain way. If we want to behave differently, we need to change our programming. It usually isn’t enough to “want” to lose weight because willpower lives at the conscious level. We need to get down to the subconscious level, where habits live, to really make the change happen.

How does NLP facilitate Weight Loss?
Most of us would agree that we need to eat better and exercise more. Just because we know we need to do it, doesn’t mean we will do it! Knowledge does not equal action! Old habits, behaviors, and beliefs constantly pull us back to what is comfortable, which is usually the opposite of what we want when we are anxious to lose weight. NLP helps us lose weight fast by doing the following:
- Remove self-limiting beliefs
- Change negative thinking to positive
- Increase energy
- Overcome negative emotions
- Create new strategies
- Stop unwanted habits
- Use powerful visualization techniques
- Increase motivation
- Change eating habits

Darleen is an excellent coach! I have been (unsuccessfully) trying to lose weight for the majority of my adult life (20+ years!) and for the first time in a very long time I feel like I am back on track and on my way towards reaching my goal. She does an excellent job of identifying areas where there’s an issue (such as habits or triggers that are holding me back) and then helping me to think through solutions, while also providing helpful tips and ideas. I’m down 6 pounds in less than 4 weeks and I am so excited to continue working with Darleen.Ruth
Where do I begin! A couple of weeks ago I was at such a low point. I felt like a failure. The weight I had gained over the last 7 years impacted all aspects of my life, relationships, and confidence. But then I started working with Darleen. My habits have improved, I’m down 5 pounds already, and I am making the necessary changes so that I can live a healthy lifestyle consistently. The investment in Darleen is an investment in yourself!Kelly
