A new study suggests that some of our personality traits can either help us lose weight or, on the contrary, make the process more difficult. In total, just over a hundred obese people took part in the study.

During the study, they were provided with combined counseling, as well as diet therapy and exercise therapy. The results showed that not all recipients respond to the program in the same way, and their results also depend on the type of personality.

For example, study participants who were optimistic at the beginning of a six-month journey found it harder to lose weight. At the same time, people who successfully lost weight, on the contrary, became more optimistic during the study, even if they were very pessimistic at the beginning of the experiment.

In addition, scientists found that another key to losing weight is self-awareness. That is, people need to know how food intake works, to collect information about what changes have occurred and how they were achieved.

At the end of the experiment, scientists made several rules that will help you lose weight

strong>:

  • do not approach weight loss with childish optimism;
  • increase self-efficacy;
  • work on self-control;
  • reduce psychological stress.

Researchers believe that people who take a sober look at the facts and consider alternatives are much more likely to get results when trying to lose weight.
