It’s not just babies and children…the farmer proudly explained that the buffaloes were played Mozart three times a day to help them produce better milk. Does listenting to Mozart really improve your brain power? C. Hammond BBC Jan 2013 (Also Source of Photo above)

How the Mozart Effect impacts all our lives
“The scientific evidence does not support that listening to music by Mozart will increase your intelligence at all. Yet, 40% of people still believe in the Mozart Effect, despite the scientific evidence against it…consider some of the implications:
Parents holding this belief might think they are doing just as much, if not more, for their children by sitting them in front of a baby DVD or playing classical music than by interacting with them. Daycare centers, schools and other institutions might follow suit. The fad of playing Mozart to babies could substitute for much better practices, ones that might actually help the social and intellectual development of children.
In other words, a belief in the Mozart effect might make children worse off than they would have been otherwise.”
How can this help cure obesity (and especially childhood obesity)?
Simply change the words “Mozart Effect” above with any concept considered to be a proven method to achieve lasting weight loss, fitness or health over 5 years. In most cases the percent of those who continue to believe in concepts not supported by overwhelming science to the contrary is well above 40% so the impact of accepting scientific evidence could be huge. Here are a few examples:
- Counting calories or points
- Restricting food groups
- Defining foods as “healthy” or “unhealthy”
- Requiring exercise
- Forced portion control
- Relying on motivation or support for your success
There are many others, and until the findings of science are acknowledged and accepted, opportunities for new paradigms and real, lasting progress will continue to be missed.
The results are clear. The EET Fitness Plan is built to respect these results. How you adjust your thinking and approach to the current undeniable reality of results due to the consequences of “the illusion of potential” is up to you…
