You Are What You Think About Start Thinking Thin

When I say thinking thin, I’m referring to the mindset that’s the opposite of thinking you’re fat. The only reason people get fat is that they think they’ll get fat and then the universe provides them with all the choices to get fat and that’s what they choose to do.

Everything in life comes down to a choice we each have to make. This is especially the case with overeating and becoming overweight. There’s always the choice to head in the other direction and start thinking thin instead of thinking fat.



Some people have a bigger structure than others and those people will generally have a bigger frame than those with a small type. We can’t do much about our body structure, but people with big frames don’t have to be fat. The same thing goes for genetics. If your parents are fat, it definitely doesn’t mean you’ll be fat since you always have a choice.

Fat people think fat and their bodies simply follow their thoughts. The body always follows the mind in all of life’s circumstances. For those who are thinking thin, their bodies follow the same train of thought and subsequently they’re physically thin.


If you’re overweight and have had trouble losing the weight and wondered why diets don’t work, it’s not the diet that’s not working; rather, it’s your mind and your habitual thoughts that are letting you down. However, you can change all this in a heartbeat by changing your subconscious mind and thinking thin.

Just like you can open up the refrigerator and choose to grab a piece of chocolate cake or an apple, you can choose to think fat and you can choose to think thin.


When I was in school, I was a generally skinny Australian kid but I wanted to be big and muscular since I believed that it’ll boost my confidence. I went to America on a holiday while I was still in school and while I was there I got a picture of my head superimposed onto Arnold Schwarzenegger’s body and put that picture on my bedroom wall when I got back home from my holiday in America.

A funny thing started to happen the more I looked at that picture. The picture was near my bed and was the first thing I saw when I woke up and the last thing I saw before I went to bed. I didn’t know it at the time but I was drowning my subconscious mind with the image of me being this giant muscular guy.


Fast forward 5 years and at 22 years old I was a 240-pound bodybuilder. Sure I worked out a lot and ate an insane volume of food. But my intuition tells me that the universe lures all the choices I had to make to become that big bodybuilder. It also helped me become the confident person that I saw when I looked at that picture of me in Arnold’s body.

I became what I thought about and have stuck with the bodybuilding lifestyle throughout my life to this day and the confidence problems disappeared along with the skinny body I wanted to change all those years ago.


A creative visualisation is a powerful tool that many successful people follow to get where they want to be. This is a way to help you start thinking thin. To avoid thinking fat and begin thinking thin, there really is not all that much more you need to do.

You don’t have to start some crazy diet that probably will not work. Just keep thinking thin and the universe will present the right choices to you. Then you must decide if you want to follow those choices or synchronicities when they present themselves.

Find the ideal body in a magazine and paste a proportionate size picture of your own face on that body. You must always carry it around with you. Copy the picture and put it next to your bed. This will make it the first thing you see when you wake up and the last thing you see before you fall asleep. This can only help you to start thinking thin and avoid the old habit of thinking fat.

The more time you spend thinking thin, the less time you’ll spend thinking fat. And as this new thought impregnates your subconscious mind, the opportunities will arrive in your life to follow to a new thin you. Just like you are what you eat, you are what you think about. What you think about is always your choice.

When you put together the sum total of my 30 years of bodybuilding training, the contests, the vast array of diets I have experimented (tortured) myself with as well as the experiences I have been through with various training partners in the gyms I have trained in all over the world, it’s been a great ride and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to be able to do lots of personal training for private clients alongside my day job. For a few years during my 30’s, I moved to Asia and worked as the Fitness Manager and head personal trainer at one of Thailand’s leading gyms in Bangkok. Learn More
