A number of studies indicate that hypnosis – when combined with a behavioral weight management program – contributes significantly to weight loss.
It’s not difficult to find someone struggling with their weight and then beating themselves up for failing to keep to the latest fad diet. The reason is normally obvious to anyone not trapped in the same old cycle – diets address the wrong area. The problem is not with what you put into your mouth. It’s what is going on in your mind that really counts!
People who are happy with their weight and keep to a healthy weight don’t actually need to try all that hard. They just do things a certain way. The formula for success is actually easy and it’s the same formula being used again and again. It’s actually all about developing healthy habits, which work at the sub-conscious level much removed from the determined efforts of someone attempting to stick to a diet.
The reason hypnosis is such a powerful tool for weight loss is it’s potential to help you build new healthy habits. This is ideal for easy, natural weight loss.
Hypnotherapy can help with weight loss and weight management in many ways
* Developing a new self image. See yourself in the future after losing weight and make that your desired future outcome.
* Learn to be more relaxed about weight loss and weight management. Stress is often a serious factor in bad diet and comfort eating.
* Positive thinking about weight and diet. Stop worrying about your weight and about weight loss and start looking forward to losing weight and achieving your goals.
* Create a self-fulfilling prophecy. In other words, start to feel better about yourself. This will help you to lose weight and, of course, losing weight will help you to feel even better about who you are and what you can achieve. The whole thing becomes a very positive cycle which goes round and round. Most people expect to have to lose weight in order to feel good about themselves. Interestingly, when you start to feel good about yourself, weight loss, health and happiness often follow.
People who hear of the success of hypnotherapy in treating weight-loss often find it difficult to believe. For example, we have had clients who lost 5 stone in one year and later described it as “easy”! The reason is that they did not have to battle day-in and day-out with sticking to a list of foods they had to avoid. Instead, they learnt to see themselves, their food and their eating in a completely different light.
And now you can too!
