Thomas here, and today I wanted to talk about something going on in your brain that’s crucial for you to take advantage of before you ever start another workout or diet.
I’m talking about the placebo effect – where a pill or treatment that has no actual therapeutic value makes an impact on your health and psyche.
I first learned about this effect in my early 20’s in a book titled “The Magic of Thinking Big” by David Schwartz.
2:02 – The placebo effect describes any psychological or physical effect where your brain can convince your body that you’re receiving treatment and your body will begin to heal.
3:05 – Study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24401940
You see, people associate taking a pill or medicine with becoming cured and being better after the fact, so when simply doing the act with a pill or medicine that doesn’t have any active ingredients, your brain tells the body to still begin the healing process and feeling better.
3:52 – Study: http://www.columbia.edu/cu/news/07/07/placebo.html
4:53 – A psychosomatic condition is one that is caused by a mental factor.
Say you psyche yourself out before walking into the gym – this causes you to not be able to lift as much or you don’t work as hard, so when you look in the mirror you don’t see the results you want.
On the other hand, if you walk into the gym or approach a workout with the mindset that “I’m going to get the most out of this right now to achieve my fitness and health goals” you’ll be surprised at how much smoother the workout will go and better performing you will be.
Especially if you’ve been struggling to lose weight and get into the shape you want for some time now. In fact, I just posted my free video seminar for those of you who are looking for the #1 most effective, fat-burning method that I personally used to transform from being nearly 300 lbs to the shape I’m in today.
