Limiting Mind Set #1: Toleration

To tolerate is defined in Webster’s Dictionary this way: to endure or put up with.

“Tolerations” are things we allow to exist at less than the desired level; un-wanted habits and results we allow to persist without properly addressing and/or resolving them.

“Tolerations” are the things we put up with day in and day out that do not enable us to BE the person we desire to be.

“Tolerations” tend to slowly accumulate a little bit at a time … like grease in the kitchen … taking the shine off life.

Talk about predictability … perhaps THE biggest and most important advancement in SCIENCE when it comes to understanding weight loss for a given individual is this one!

A well-known clinical study was done by one of America’s top universities, Stanford University. The purpose of the study was to determine if DNA testing may be effective in assisting people to lose weight.

When compared to other well-established weight loss programs (maybe some of those out there you’ve tried in the past), those people that were on a meal plan designed specific to THEIR genetic profile lost 2.5 times more weight AND they were much more successful in keeping the weight off compared to those not on an individualized plan.
