Brain Flip Weight Loss: David Zappasodi
“The root of the weight loss problem isn't in your thinking. The root of the problem is a survival brain association that was formed when you were younger around food and stress to survive. Trying to identify this association by using your conscious mind simply mind doesn't pair up no matter how hard you try. That's the only problem you have; you're trying to use a tool that isn't designed to fix the deeper block. It's like you're trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.” – David Zappasodi

Power Quotes From The Show
“I don't try to help people lose weight so that they can transform their lives later. I help them to drastically and intensely transform their lives right away and then I help them lose the weight. Once we have the brain flip transformation, the survival brain where ice cream no longer equals enjoyment but pain switches the flip so that being overweight no longer means feeling safe anymore but unsafe. Once the conscious brain and the survival brain are one in the same intention, it's easy to change your life and lose weight easily but you have to go through the pain of the brain flip first before you can get to that point.” – David Zappasodi
“I think traditional talk therapy is great in certain circumstances but in another case, the more that we focus on our past and the problems we've had, the more we create an identity where we bring that into the future and we keep perpetuating it. So, I don't have people focus on their faults at all. I have them listen to an audio of them talking about all the painful things but when they of thoughts and memories come up, we don't try to deal with it, forgive anybody, or anything like that. We just keep going with the practice and all of those mental images and emotions just iron themselves out.” – David Zappasodi
“Generosity is when we're willing to get out of our comfort zone and do something different which will allow us to let go of the past; to generously give it away. The saying, ‘If you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting what you've always gotten.' That's the opposite of generosity. Generosity is doing something different so that you get a different result. In the process of getting a different result, you're letting go and generously giving away what's no longer needed.” – David Zappasodi
