Would you lock your jaw shut to lose weight? Featured Image

Earlier this year, a new method was introduced to losing weight.

A magnetic device to actually lock your jaw and prevent it from opening any more than 2mm wide.

This begs a few questions in my mind, how on earth have we got here as a society? And what can be done to solve the problems of reactionary eating that is so severe, as to have science create such a monstrosity?

Behaviour change coaching and education needs to be at the forefront of the obesity crisis, if all investments were aimed towards this, a long term strategy would emerge.

A few keys to losing weight:

  • Take responsibility for your eating habits.

Unless you’re a child at the mercy of your parents, you’re in charge of what you put in your mouth. Sure, this can be complex but unless you realise this, nothing can really happen long term.

  • Join a support group.

We are social creatures and as Jim Rohn once said “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”. Think about that.

  • Take it slow.

Choosing a very manageable incremental change, one step at a time often means you won’t fail… Not only that but because you are actioning something worthy of your goal, you will feel empowered to do more, knowing you can do more.
