How Pookie Jenkins bridged the gap between his mind and body for optimal performance

Pookie Jenkins was stuck.

A personal trainer bridging his mind and body
Bridge your mind and body

At nearly 410 pounds, he had tried every “diet” imaginable.

No matter what approach he took to lose weight, his body would fight him.

Then one day he realized his body wanted to be fat, and as long as it wanted to be fat, there was nothing he could do to lose weight.

He was in a fight with his body.

In the two years following Pookie's "ah-hah" moment, he lost over 220 pounds naturally, without surgery or counting calories.

One of the key components to his success was that he identified and addressed the mental and emotional reasons that his body felt safe being overweight. Once these issues were eliminated, the weight began to fall off.

Your body wants to be fat anytime it decides that being fat is the best way to keep you safe. Once your body understands that being healthy is the best way to keep you safe, your body will want to be healthy.

When you approach fat loss from the outside in, you overlook mental and emotional threats that can confuse your body into thinking that being fat can help keep you safe.

Bridge The Gap Between Your Mind and Body

Emotional Obesity:

At a subconscious level you may have the association that being fat makes you feel safer, or that it is serving another emotional need. In this case your body is simply trying to protect you; it is making you feel safer emotionally.

Mental Starvation:

Though your body only recognizes physical starvation, you can also be suffering from emotional or mental starvation. This could be a desire for love, joy, fun, intimacy, or a deeper spiritual connection. Any mental or emotional longing can send the same chemical signals in your brain that physical starvation causes.

Dysfunctional Beliefs:

If you believe that you were meant to be fat, or deserve to be fat, or if you view weight loss as impossible, then your body will obey by refusing to lose weight. Change your dysfunctional beliefs first and then weight loss will become simple.

Exercise was a big part of Pookie's remarkable fat loss journey. Once he broke through the mental and emotional reasons for his obesity, his body craved activity.
