About this course
Hi, I’m Steven Blake and I have been helping people lose weight since 2002. During that time, I have helped several thousand people and now want to help hundreds of thousands. When I started it was providing a service with very low calorie replacement meals which was a very easy and effective diet for people who stuck to it, In order to help more people stick to it and to provide them with as much support as I possibly could, I studied the diet industry and all the alternative solutions. It soon became clear that food and exercise advice was very contradictory, so I concentrated on the things everyone seemed to agree on.
I realised that if food experts could not agree on much of anything and neither could personal trainers then I would concentrate on what is proven to work. It also had to be simple and not overly rely on will power. I have been studying the way people think for over 25 years and in particular the power of positive thinking. I decided to add to this and qualified as a Hypnotherapist, a subject that had interested me since I was 7 (I'm 67 now). I also trained in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) which sounds complex but really is about how the language we use in our head programs the way we behave.
Hypnotherapy and NLP are tools I use to guide others in helping them re-program themselves in all areas of their lives, and to make this an acceptable process for everyone I have eliminated the need for trance .
Amending the way we are already programmed is particularly helpful in weight and fat reduction and the maintenance of that, because eating is so driven by habit and habits are no longer a conscious act. It is my intent to help you take your unconscious bad habits and turn them into unconscious healthy habits that you enjoy, so that it is not all about willpower. You do however need to act upon what you read. As the comedian Eric Morecambe said to Ernie Wise “I don’t know why you buy that slimming magazine – you never eat it!”
So, in conclusion, there is no need to digest all that I tell you, but you do need to accept and digest the suggestions that ring true with you. Don’t look for perfection, the more you can put into practice the healthier and happier you can be.
Not a diet! A revolutionary way of naturally getting to the size/weight that is best for you, and that you can maintain without continuous massive conscious effort.
OldFat2Go is based on Steven's expertise in talking directly to the unconscious mind without needing a trance. He originally created OldPain2Go, a method of asking the body to stop sending out unnecessary pain messages, which is used by over a 1,300 Practitioners Worldwide and includes Doctors, Psychologists, Physiotherapists, Hypnotherapist and Multi disciplinary therapist including Bowen Practitioners. The additional support you can purchase (if you feel you need it) will come from someone who originally trained in OldPain2Go as they have a firm grasp of the concept of BrainBargaining and story resolution, which is at the heart of all Stevens work.
Steven explains why diets rarely work, and yet we keep doing them, getting temporary results.
We discuss here the reasons for fat storage. It goes way beyond just calories in being more than calories used.
Steven developed this theory to explain why diets only usually work as a temporary fix. The true answer lies in the way we think.
Most of us Yo-Yo diet. Steven explains why, and how we can get ourselves back into balance.
The latest thinking and science shows that our genetic programming is simply a tendency towards our originating programs (from both parents). But nothing is fixed and we can make changes that alter the structure of our DNA.
Hormonal differences lead to fat storage being in different places and our survival system ensure some of that storage is used up last so as to be available in certain emergencies.
Steven explains why Fat protects us, and the role of water in helping us remove the excess fat.
From Steven's experiences of helping many people it was rare to find that their wasn't an emotional issue behind storing excess fat. Steven explains why and what you can do to de-clutter that emotional baggage.
Steven regularly asked people who are thin was this naturally how they are, or did they have to work at it. The answers were quite eye opening.
Lacking sleep is a big factor in fat storage. Steven explains why Trying to sleep is the opposite of helpful.
You may have noticed that you get more offers of "treats" when you say you are on a diet. Steven explains how and why other people will take you away from your goals, and how to stop it happening. Learning assertiveness will help you resist - easily.
Most of us are programmed to clear our plate. Steven explains how we can overcome these old programs that trap us in sending fat to our waist instead of our waste bin.
We are driven by our survival system to do things that make us survive. We naturally go towards things that are necessities to live and are repelled by things that do us harm. Modern methods of food production often confuse us which is which.
Quantity is not what turns the hunger off. Steven explains why Junk food is a vicious circle of consumption.
The speed we eat at is a major factor in overeating. Steven explains why and how to eat to get results.
Eating more than you should in one sitting is rarely about food! Steven explains what we can do instead to satisfy ourselves.
Alcohol can have a role in our life even at low levels. We discuss the effects on the body so that you can make informed choices.
What we think about how we look is rarely shared by others! We tend to be very self-critical, and we can learn to love and care for ourselves without feeling guilty about it.
It could be just that you take in more calories than you use up, but is that the "real" reason. The Story is the key!
The hand flip technique. To help you convert negative repetitive thoughts into a positive instruction for the Unconscious to help you with.
A simple, quick and easy way to reduce the emotion of anything where it isn't appropriate.
