How do you maintain discipline with diet?

Diet is simply a selection of healthy or unhealthy foods. once you’ve made the decision to at healthy, then momentum and discipline will keep you strong for the road ahead.

My discipline comes from an intensity of thought. To build this intensity of thought. You have to first create something called a Hook. This hook creates a conditional reflex. When you activate your hook, you intensify a behavior.  You can read up on the Nobel prize winner named Ivan Pavlov that really gets into detail about this. I first learned about this in a Russian manual for bodybuilding, that I ordered from a bodybuilding magazine, about 17 years ago. So, I started created my own hooks.  Every time I opened the fridge, I would picture myself in the shape that I wanted to be in and if I ate unhealthy food, I would immediately do 400 situps.  That would kill my craving for more. Eventually, every time I would open the fridge and see unhealthy food, my abs would start to ache.

Get into a routine and focus and the next thing you must do to accomplish your task. I always have a vision. Stay very focused.  You need to believe in yourself and have no self-doubt that you will accomplish your goals.
