The Connection Between Your Brain Thinking Preferences And Weight Loss

Throughout history, people have attempted to understand human behaviour. But the human brain is a complex organ, and understanding how it works has proven to be a challenging task. One of the interesting aspects that have been studied in recent years is how our thinking preferences may impact our weight loss journey.

When it comes to weight loss, we often focus on physical factors such as diet and exercise. However, our brain plays a crucial role in determining our behaviours and habits.

If you’ve tried everything to lose weight, from diet pills to fad diets, but still struggle to maintain a healthy weight, it may be time to look at your thinking preferences and how they affect your weight loss journey.


What are Thinking Preferences?


Thinking preferences refer to how our brain processes and organises information. These preferences can determine how we make decisions, solve problems, and perceive the world around us.

There are four main thinking preferences: analytical, practical, emotional and structural. Depending on your dominant thinking preference, you may have a particular approach to weight loss that works better for you.

For example, if you’re an analytical thinker, you may prefer to track your calorie intake and plan out your meals meticulously. On the other hand, if you’re a practical thinker, you may focus on finding a sustainable and realistic approach to weight loss that fits into your lifestyle.

To get a definite answer about your thinking preferences you can invest in a brain profile.


Neethling Brain Instruments (NBI®) 


The Neethling Brain Instruments consist of battery instruments that strive to develop whole-brain thinking in individuals. These instruments assess your thinking preferences and help you understand how your brain works – ultimately providing you with a brain profile. 


What Does A Brain Profile Indicate? 


A brain profile can indicate how you: 


  • communicate
  • act towards people in certain situations
  • do your business
  • learn and teach
  • solve problems
  • make decisions
  • how do you think you can lose weight


Under the brain profile, you can dive deeper and select a specific profile e.g. preferences, skills, leadership, learning, parenting, eating habits or careers. 

Because this article revolves around weight loss, we will discuss the eating habits profile


Eating Habits Profile


Why is it so hard to lose weight” is a question that many people ask themselves. The answer might lie in their thinking preferences, specifically in their eating habits profile. This profile can give you valuable insights into how your brain thinks about food and what may be hindering your weight loss efforts.

The NBI Eating Habits Profile measures thinking preferences, not the skills necessary to execute them. It’s possible for someone to strongly prefer order and organisation without having developed the corresponding skills. In this case, it is recommended to develop the skills that support the desire for effectiveness in following the chosen weight loss program.


Why Do People Need To Do Their Eating Habit Profile?


People who struggle with weight loss often follow the latest trends and fad diets, without understanding why they are not successful in achieving their desired results. However, by taking the time to do an eating habits profile, individuals can gain a better understanding of how their brain perceives food – which is ultimately the first step in creating lasting change.


What Do People Get From Doing Their Eating Habit Profile?


  • Reports regarding their eating habits profile.
  • 21-day lifestyle journal
  • The doctor will discuss the profile with their patients – the dynamics and pitfalls!
  • Patients will gain a unique insight into their own eating habit profile
