When we set a goal like weight loss but don't share it with anyone else, the only person we let down when we don't achieve it is ourselves. And unfortunately, a lot of us are okay with that.

So that actually forces me to be more mindful of the food choices that I'm making.’” “I already see the future version of you. I see what's possible. So I'm here to believe in you until you're able to believe in yourself. So until then, you can borrow my belief until you get there.” PRODUCTS / RESOURCES: Click here to watch Eva’s Weight Loss Mini-Training Click to Apply for 1:1 Weight Loss Coaching with Eva Eva on Instagram @itsevarodriguez - instagram.com/itsevarodriguez Visit Eva's website at eva.fit or uncomplicatingweightloss.com Have any burning questions for Eva?

EP59 Ditch the Diet Mentality
We’ve all been there before…the yo-yo dieting, feeling guilty for eating “bad” foods, and the feeling of defeat when yet another restrictive diet does not work. But is this pervasive and pressuring diet culture really the only way to lose weight and reach our goals?    On the one-year anniversary of Uncomplicating Weight Loss, Eva urges you to reject the diet mentality. Lose the guilt, shame, and “last supper thinking.” It’s time to stop being miserable, listen in, and start building a better relationship with food and your body!   KEY POINTS: - What is intuitive eating? - How diet culture feeds on our insecurities  - The negative influence of a diet mentality  - Why restrictive dieting does not work! - Recognizing and overcoming diet mentality    QUOTABLES: “Letting go of a diet mentality doesn't mean that you stop taking care of yourself.

It just means that you're not bought into the idea that certain foods are the enemy.”    PRODUCTS / RESOURCES: Click to Apply for 1:1 Weight Loss Coaching with Eva Eva on Instagram @itsevarodriguez - instagram.com/itsevarodriguez Visit Eva's website at eva.fit or uncomplicatingweightloss.com Have any burning questions for Eva?

EP58 How Releasing Emotional Weight Will Help You Lose Weight
Processing pain is uncomfortable, so we often avoid, resist, or even fight it back.

We get to decide what we want to think of it. And we get to decide what we are going to make it mean. Your thoughts, create your results!” “Processing pain is really uncomfortable. It, in and of itself, is a process that takes time. Feeling pain on purpose does not feel good at all, but here's what I learned. When we allow ourselves to feel our pain all the way through, we see that it's manageable.”   PRODUCTS / RESOURCES: Click to Apply for 1:1 Weight Loss Coaching with Eva Eva on Instagram @itsevarodriguez - instagram.com/itsevarodriguez Visit Eva's website at eva.fit or uncomplicatingweightloss.com Have any burning questions for Eva?

EP53 How To Change Your Mind In Order To Change Your Results
Change is not easy. Evolving into a newer, better version of yourself and creating the results you want in your life takes effort and intentionality. It goes against homeostasis, efficiency, and comfort, everything our brain craves and defaults to. But we all sometimes feel that urge moving us forward, that unspoken energy pushing us to become better. So how can we?   In this episode, Eva discusses the importance of understanding and changing your mind in order to change the results you have in life. Tune in as she shows you how to train your mind for change and encourages you to push through the “river of misery” until your new way of thinking, feeling, and acting is so automatic that you won’t be able to remember what you did before.    KEY POINTS: - Why is change so difficult? - Breaking down our need for growth and evolution  - How to create new neural pathways and forget the old  - Ask yourself: Where am I? And where do I want to go? - Matching the thought and the feeling - the real key to change    QUOTABLES: “The process of change is discovering it, then changing it. Allowing it to be awkward and painful until it becomes effortless. That is the process of change. It's discovering, creating, and then closing the gap.”   PRODUCTS / RESOURCES: Eva on Instagram @itsevarodriguez - instagram.com/itsevarodriguez Visit Eva's website at eva.fit or uncomplicatingweightloss.com Have any burning questions for Eva?

EP52 How to Build Self-Confidence
We often say things like “I'll feel more confident when I finally lose the weight.” Or “I'll feel confident when I can fit into a size four.” But confidence should not be conditional! While our brains are programmed to see what’s wrong and do not produce self-confidence naturally, we must work against these beliefs, programming, and humanness. We must learn to manage our mind and practice confidence like any other skill. So in this episode, Eva guides us through the three parts of self-confidence and how you can train your brain to get more of it!   KEY POINTS: - Feeling confident should not be conditional - How to earn trust from yourself - “The worst thing that can ever happen is an emotion” - What emotions are you afraid to feel? - The way we think of ourselves determines our confidence - Self-confidence is a practice of self-belief   QUOTABLES: “You don't need to change anything about yourself on the outside to start feeling confidence on the inside.” “When you have more self-confidence, you'll find that you'll set more goals, you'll take more actions, you'll talk to more people, you'll take more risks, you'll achieve more, you'll start to believe beyond your current capability and capacity, and you'll start to live into your future.”    PRODUCTS / RESOURCES: Eva on Instagram @itsevarodriguez - instagram.com/itsevarodriguez Visit Eva's website at eva.fit or uncomplicatingweightloss.com Have any burning questions for Eva?

EP51 How One Word Can Shift Your Mindset
If you know Eva, you know that words matter.

There is a clear difference in the emotion behind each, right? So what if we start rewiring our thought patterns from obligation to opportunity? After all, everything truly is a choice. So why not choose this simple yet powerful mindset shift and start getting the results you want with less mind drama and resistance. The choice is yours!   KEY POINTS: - “I have to” versus “I get to” - Why words matter! - Do we really HAVE to do anything? - How to shift your mindset from obligation to opportunity - Practice, practice, practice!    QUOTABLES: “Words matter. When you believe ‘I have to,’ ‘I should,’ or ‘I can't,’ it changes how you experience each of those actions that you're attaching after the words. It adds an emotional weight to it. It adds a sense of obligation to the process of doing the thing.”   PRODUCTS / RESOURCES: Eva on Instagram @itsevarodriguez - instagram.com/itsevarodriguez Visit Eva's website at eva.fit or uncomplicatingweightloss.com Have any burning questions for Eva?
