Glen Fichardt has discovered that if an individual’s subconscious thoughts, beliefs and assumptions around weight-loss are not revealed and reprogrammed, that any weight lost won’t stay off. Once these are dealt with, Fichardt says students have launched new careers, improved relationships and even started businesses while achieving their weight goals.
In a recent phone interview Fichardt explained how he was forced to use his engineer training to analyze why he had been able to lose 20 – 30 pounds on several occasions, only to have the weight return every time.
“As a civil engineer I built $100 million construction projects around the world, and thinking about this, it dawned on me – in construction we spend almost as much time installing the foundation as we do building the bridge superstructure” said Fichardt.
“So, as I looked at my inconsistent weight-loss it struck me like a ton of bricks that the foundation, the crucial foundation for sustained weight-loss is your subconscious programming. We all have it. You can think of it like subconscious software running the computer that is our mind” added Fichardt.
Fichardt says he had been able to lose weight using the standard approaches of diet, exercise and combinations of the two, though he had not addressed the subconscious beliefs that were responsible for the inevitable “rebound weight gain” he says every dieter is familiar with.
“I spent years studying the subconscious programming that everybody carries around and I’ve developed a real aptitude for helping people discover and delete their unsupportive thoughts and beliefs and install supportive ones” says Fichardt.
“The truly astounding thing for students is that once we’ve identified and upgraded their subconscious software, they experience positive effects in many other parts of their life – not just health” added Fichardt.
Fichardt has created a program called Autopilot Weight-Loss which he says is unique, in that students cannot simply enroll or pay for entry to the course. Fichardt insists on a 15-minute interview over the phone before he accepts anyone into the program.
“The interview is vital for two important reasons – one is to establish that a student is actually committed to their own success, that they are doing this for themselves and not someone else, or because they have been told they should lose weight” said Fichardt, who says unless a goal is personal it’s going to be virtually impossible to achieve.
“Secondly, because the program involves regular group conference calls and interaction with other students, it’s very important that each student is prepared to support other students in their goals too. The sense of community within the group is one of the most powerful aspects of the program” Fichardt added.
Fichardt explained that the interview process also gave prospective students an insight into his unique approach to weight-loss, and often revealed a subconscious belief that had been working against the student.
