#4: You’re An Over-Analyser! – 10 Reasons You Struggle to Lose Fat and Keep It Off!

The Over-Analyser is an EXPERT at dissecting posts on Facebook and text messages for hidden meanings….. or stalking people online….

The Over-Analyser spends hours vividly imagining and replaying all the cringe-worthy or embarrassing things they did in the Summer of 2005 (at the time of this writing its July 2017!)

“Why? What else? What if…?” These are some of the favourite questions of the over-analyser.

The Over-Analyser makes the simple things, uber complicated creating issues when there were none to begin with.

So lets discuss, analysing and fat loss!

Analysing is an extremely important skill. If you’re an architect, scientist, mathematician, accountant, engineer, you have to be an analyser to do your job effectively.

However, there is a time and place for analysing, and you have to know when to switch it off. If you over analyse yourself, your capabilities, and your sense of self worth you’ll end up in trouble.

The over analyser will constantly ask questions such as “What else is wrong with me? What if I can’t? What if I’m not good enough? What if I’m just not meant to?” You’ll find any number of problems, flaws and faults in yourself if you look hard enough. You’ll either find tiny meaningless things and make them bigger and bigger. Or you’ll create issues that weren’t even there in the first place.

All these struggles are built on one fundamental misunderstanding. You don’t need a more intimate understanding of why you’re stuck and struggling.
You need a more intimate understanding of how to get the results you want.

Here’s an analogy:

● Why did the car break down? Because the fan belt broke.
● Why? I didn’t service the car.
● Why? I was really busy at work.
● Why? The boss was away on holiday.
● Why? And so on…

What you need to ask is HOW:

● How can I get to my destination?

Call a cab or pick up truck. Problem solved.

When it comes to fat loss, the over-analyser will:

● Struggle with binge eating and exacerbate that issue by asking “Why do I binge eat? Why is this so hard? What’s wrong with me?” etc.
● Live most of their life with excessive stress, and as we’ve discussed before, chronic stress leads to fat retention and impaired recovery.
● Struggle with low self esteem and seek to numb themselves or distract themselves – often with food and drink or work.

So, think in outcomes. What do you want?
Remember, you get more of what you focus on!

Stop focusing on why your car broke down and pick the easy route – call a cab to your destination!

This stuff is monumentally important to overall happiness, confidence and your ability to lose body fat and keep it off.
