A two-dimensional approach to weight loss is concentrating narrowly on dieting and exercise. A three-dimensional approach to losing your unwanted weight is one in which you take a look at your psychology to see what about your psychology will help or hinder you during the weight loss process.
Let’s go right to the three-dimensional approach to reducing your weight. How easily can you recognize the feelings that send you right to food? What will you have to do to deal more directly with these feelings you are subduing or avoiding by weight gaining and weight maintaining eating? What conditions might make it difficult for you to do something about these feelings? What will it take for you to recover from an eating bout and get back to trying to deal more effectively with your feelings? These are the kinds of questions you will be asking yourself if you take a three-dimensional approach to losing your unwanted weight.
