Lose weight by thinking it, study says. Tamala Edwards reports during Action News Mornings on October 2, 2018.

If you're trying to lose a little weight, a new study says you can just think yourself slim.

Researchers in Australia have found that dieters can lose up to five times more weight by using a new technique called "functional imagery training" or FIT.

The therapy requires a person to "imagine" themselves slimmer.

Overweight people who used the therapy lost more inches from the waist, and continued to lose more weight after the intervention was finished.
