Only 5% of our 70,000 daily thoughts are conscious and influenced by willpower. Our hunger, satiety and habits operates out of our non-conscious mental pathways.
Willpower can't force subconscious abilities. If it can't make our left hands write proficiently, neither can it force us to adopt a healthy lifestyle consistently.
Willpower should be used to correct our automatic mental pathways. Such changes reduces negative thinking about weight loss and fitness and triggers the other 4 Forces in our arsenal. (Elements of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy).

95% OF THE SUBMERGED ICE (UNCONSCIOUS BRAIN ACTIVITY)
Willpower alone cannot change our lifestyle.
Reframe - Apply, Analyse and Evaluate
Apply knowledge to experience Eg. Slice of bread (50 Cal) = physiological experience of walking 25 floors
Analyse what we experience as Pain and Pleasure
Evaluate, then develop awareness E.g. How fast do we chew?
Relearn - Remember and Understand
Deconstruct our personal myths E.g. "I have fat genes."
Deconstruct urban legends E.g. "Eat less, move more" to lose weight
Remember new knowledge E.g. "How does body store fat?
Understand new ideas E.g. "Food can be an addiction"
Don't start exercising. Start Learning. Starting to exercise without building our knowledge of how our mind and body works is like jumping off a cliff hoping to fly.

“An enormous portion of cognitive activity is non-conscious, figuratively speaking, it could be 95 percent; we probably will never know precisely how much is outside awareness.”
