Is There Any Way to Change My Metabolism?

Sorry to inform you, but unless you have a metabolic disorder there is no way, other than changing your activity habits, to increase your metabolism.

Rest assured that you can succeed at weight control, but to get started, you’ll need to accept the fact that you’ll need to habitually eat less than you’ve been eating.  That’s what my program of counseling, therapy and training helps people to do. You might think it’s impossible or at least very hard to change, but as long as you postpone working to change how you eat, you will remain overweight or more likely, keep gaining.

In order to solve your weight problem, you’ll need to create habits where you habitually eat the right number of calories instead of habits where you overeat, eating too many calories. It can be done, with the right technique. Some clients say it’s easy with these techniques. However, those are the ones I’ve seen working hard for what they want.

If you suspect that you have a low metabolism because of a metabolic disorder, go to your doctor or clinic to get tested. The doctors who specialize in this are called endocrinologists, and they can test your blood for hypothyroidism as well as other disorders, and measure your metabolic rate with devices called calorimeters. Getting tested will relieve your mind of wondering, and will result in either correcting a metabolic imbalance, or letting you know that there is no problem other than having an overeating habit that needs to be changed.

Taking drugs, pills or weight loss products to try to “boost” your metabolism, as if taking cocaine, speed or something to make yourself hyperthyroid will help, is a bad idea that can ruin your life. Don’t do it.

I lost 140 lbs. when I discovered my methods over 25 years ago, and I’ve kept it off without too much difficulty. I’ve trained thousands to do the same, written a book about it, and now I train other therapist too. Follow me to solve your weight problem and change your life for the better in ways you haven’t dreamed of.

Questions?

So, I’m going to try this blog thing. I’m William (Bill) Anderson, the psychotherapist who discovered Therapeutic Psychogenics when I lost 140 lbs. 1n 1983 after 25 years of obesity and failure with diets and exercise schemes. I’ve kept it off for over 25 years now and helped thousands to succeed at weight loss with The Anderson Method. Now, I’m training others to do this counseling and therapy all over the country in places like Atlanta and North Carolina as well as here in Sarasota. What will I write? When I’ve done radio and TV call-ins, there are always more calls than I can take, and now I’m starting to get emails from readers who have questions. So, I figure my blog will be an “Ask Bill” opportunity for me to answer the specific questions that readers and other interested people have about working the method and losing weight for life. 

Please send me your questions.
