Eric’s Guide to Boosting Willpower with Food & Wine

Ask Eric:"I have no will power when it comes to wine and food, what do I do?"

People often discuss the triggers associated with food, emphasizing the negativity we associate with certain items. Thoughts like “I can’t have this,” “This is bad,” or “Why can’t I stop drinking?” initiate a negative cycle. To combat this, plan for indulgence by banking calories during the week. This way, you can enjoy the “bad” foods like chocolate, alcohol, cookies, brownies, and, of course, wine without guilt.

How Do You Want to Look?
Visualize Your Goal!

Visualization is crucial in evaluating what’s truly important, helping you weigh your goals against the immediate pleasure of wine. Start by planning one small, indulgent food event per week. This practice not only makes the journey enjoyable but also reinforces the principle that visualization is key to achievement. If you can visualize it, you can achieve it.

Envisioning the New You in Different Scenarios:

If you’re unable to visualize your goal, achieving it becomes much harder. Take a moment to imagine your ideal self. Once you have a clear image in your mind, look for visual representations—search for photos online or in magazines that closely match your ideal vision. Cut out or print these images and place them in spots you frequently see, like on your mirror, bulletin board, or refrigerator. These visuals will serve as continuous motivation and a reminder of the power of visualization.

Making visualization a daily habit is vital, and the best way to solidify a habit is by making it enjoyable. Think back to your childhood—daydreaming, playing pretend, and imagining—embrace this creativity in visualizing the person you want to become. Nothing is more exciting than creating a better version of yourself.

With the image of your ideal self firmly in mind, imagine placing this new version of yourself in various situations. Picture entering a party in your ideal outfit. Experience the feelings of happiness, pride, and confidence. Notice the positive reactions from your friends and bask in their compliments and astonishment at your transformation. This visualization isn’t just about pride; it’s about feeling strong, fit, and healthy, having achieved your weight loss and fitness goals. By visualizing these successes, you’re making them more attainable.

Similarly, envision yourself at a class reunion, surrounded by old friends. Imagine feeling confident, enjoying conversations, and not being self-conscious about your appearance. You look and feel great, and your peers notice and comment positively, possibly even saying you look better than in high school.

These exercises in visualization are not just fantasies—they’re a pathway to achieving your goals and becoming the version of yourself you’ve always wanted to be.
