You can train your mind to see yourself as a stronger, sexier, leaner and more fit person.
The Truth about Fat Cells
Your body has a certain amount of fat cells that grow and shrink depending on how you feed them. Other than liposuction, there is no dieting way to reduce the amount of fat cells in your body.
Smaller Fat Cells
After working out and eating healthy, take some time to imagine yourself shrinking. Just before you fall asleep is a good time, or while you get dressed, or anytime you have your brain all to yourself.
Then imagine what one of your fat cells looks like and look into it’s face. See how weak it is, confused, and scared. Be cool and picture your fat cell shrinking, or even feed it some fresh produce and watch it shrink — and know that you can do this with all your fat cells. You know that shrinking them will shrink you, which equals a smaller you.
DO NOT listen to their pleas for fatty, greasy, salty, or fake foods. Remember that you’re in charge of shrinking your fat cells.
What is a Round Diet Visualization?
A Round Diet visualization is a picture or set of pictures of your less Round, slim and fit self that you form in your head. You then take these pictures, also known as imagery, on an inner journey inside your head for the specific purpose of becoming less Round.

Why Visualize Yourself Less Round?
Like an athlete who uses imagery to train their mind to win, you can train your mind to win the slim and fit body that dwells within in you. This is something I did as a top-placing competitive bodybuilder, where I pictured myself on stage with the eyes of the judges and audience all over me.
There was no way I was going to stand up there and be criticized–not after I worked so hard. I pictured myself so lean and ripped and symmetrical that I had to win.
Picturing winning a competition activates the same area of the brain as actually winning a competition. Picturing yourself losing weight and becoming slim and fit activates the same areas of your brain as actually losing weight and becoming slim and fit.
