Hydroxycut Discusses Psychological Implications Linked to Weight Loss

Although Dieters Try a Variety of Weight Loss Plans, Many Never Meet the Results They Expect, Leaving Some to Wonder if Psychological Barriers Are Preventing Individuals From Shedding Pounds; Hydroxycut Comments on These Implications and Offers Tips on How to Handle Them

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 12, 2012) - Losing weight is a challenge that many Americans are familiar with, and although the goal may be the same for every dieter, the journey is typically an individual experience. In addition to the external factors, such as diet and fitness routines, dieters often face difficult psychological barriers. A recent article from The Huffington Post discusses one such mental block that many dieters may not even be aware of -- the nature of habits. The makers of Hydroxycut comment on these factors and note that it may prove beneficial for some to find ways to exercise the mind to reduce the likelihood facing psychological obstacles.

In the article, Irene Rubaum-Keller, licensed psychotherapist and author of Foodaholic, explains many engrained food habits, including eating pre-dinner snacks each night and ordering the same thing from restaurants. She comments, "These entrenched habits take time, energy, focus and often professional support to change. It takes work to maintain those changes as well. Over time it does get easier." Although some may have an easier time than others in changing habits and behavioral patterns, the creators of Hydroxycut remind individuals that it is essential to carry an optimistic attitude.

In a recent press statement, Hydroxycut notes, "The key components of a well-rounded weight loss plan include diet, exercise, and a positive attitude; however, there are many ways in which people can create the different aspects of a healthy lifestyle." In the article, Irene Rubaum-Keller shares a similar sentiment adds that others can get the mental boost they need by finding group support via online programs or by joining weight loss clubs. In addition, she suggests, "If you have tried to [lose weight] alone in the past and failed, get support. If you can afford individual psychotherapy, do yourself a favor and go."

Considering that those pursuing weight loss are apt to make drastic life changes, Hydroxycut recognizes that many may benefit from consulting a professional therapist. Hydroxycut concludes in its press statement, "Psychology, behavioral psychology in particular, is able to help some individuals change their perspective, or paradigm. Therapy can help people understand the need to lose weight and the way in which to accomplish this goal."
