Episode Highlights:

(02:03) Thriving means that you're not just trying to make it through your day; So many of us get up and think: "How am I going to make it through another day?" We all have a few days like that once in a while, but if that's your experience on most days, then what that means is that you're struggling.

We want you to be thriving so that most days you're waking up and you're feeling well rested, and eager to do things that are enjoyable to you.

When I say a healthy, vibrant body, what that means is that you have the disease of obesity under control, your blood pressure is excellent, you're nourishing your body with whole foods, you're exercising regularly because you enjoy it, you have all the energy you need to do the physical things that you want to do and you're just full of vitality.

(07:45) The job of our primitive brain is to keep us safe, to not make waves because right now we're alive and we're surviving. So anything that we do differently could jeopardize our survival. This means that any kind of change is very scary to the primitive brain. Anything new, anything different could mean impending doom, and our primitive brain will fight against it and keep us in that safe cave where we belong.

(09:49) To make this transformation, we have to develop an entirely new set of thoughts and beliefs. Beliefs like: I am vibrant and healthy, I know how to nourish my body correctly, I know how to manage my emotions without using food or alcohol as a buffer. All new beliefs.

And these thoughts may be in complete contradiction to your current thoughts. There's a term for this that comes from psychology, it's called "cognitive dissonance". It's when we're thinking two different contradictory thoughts. Being in cognitive dissonance is very uncomfortable, so we'll instantly go back to the old practiced thought in a heartbeat.
