    Glen Fichardt Teaches a Weight-Loss Mindset, Gets Astounding Results


    Glen Fichardt has found that if an individual’s subconscious thoughts, beliefs and assumptions around weight-loss are not revealed and reprogrammed, that any successful weight lost won’t stay off. However, once these are dealt with, Fichardt says students have launched new careers, improved relationships and even started businesses while achieving their weight goals.

    Western Business Journal reports that Fichardt was forced to use his engineer training to analyze why he had been able to lose as much as 20 - 30 pounds, on several occasions, only to have the weight return each 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” he said.


    Fichardt 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 or on Skype, before he accepts anyone into the program.
