Hypnosis For Weight Loss

Weight Loss With Hypnosis

Weight Loss Struggles Can Be Over With Hypnosis

Have you been beating yourself up over your struggle to lose weight? Have you struggled with diet after diet, with exercise plan after exercise plan, but all that seems to happen is you lose the weight to gain it right back? Do you feel like the person you see in the mirror is someone else, that it isn’t the real you? So you struggle with cravings, with eating because to feel sad, or because you feel happy, or any one of a number of emotions? Hypnosis for weight loss has been clinically shown to assist with weight loss. In fact, one study suggested that hypnosis may increase weight loss by as much as 16 times.

If you have, there’s a chance you’re looking at the problem from the wrong angle. You see, the real key to long term weight loss is not in your diet or your exercise plan: the real key to long term weight loss is in your mindset.

With the right mindset, staying with a healthy food plan is easy. You are eating the foods you eat because those are the foods you want to eat. It’s not a struggle any more. Imagine that you can choose healthy eating and healthy exercise as easily as you choose to do your favorite pastime. How easy would it then be to stay with choosing healthy foods, how easy would it be to stay on a healthy exercise plan? If it were all that easy, you would have the fail-safe way to lose weight, and, more importantly, to keep it off.

You might think that such a mindset is impossible. Look around you, you almost certainly know people who are already in that mindset. Not the select few who seem to eat anything and never gain an ounce, but look at those around you who say “no” to extra food, who choose healthy food, who exercise, and who do it regularly, even automatically. You know that if they can do it, so can you. It’s all about what you think, what you feel, and what you say to yourself as you decide what to eat.

Changing your mindset is what we do with hypnosis. Hypnosis helps you think and feel differently about your food choices, so choosing healthy becomes automatic, as easy and natural as anything you’ve ever done. And that’s why those who use hypnosis as an aid to weight loss keep the weight off. So many times, people find it a struggle of will against will to stick to a food and exercise plan. Eventually, that battle is lost.

But Wait, Does Hypnosis Really Work?

While hypnosis has gotten a bad rap over the years, there is an overwhelming amount of scientific evidence throughout history that backs up its validity.

If you have tried a million fad diets and are ready for a new approach weight loss, read on to find out how hypnosis can help.

How Hypnosis Works

Hypnosis works very differently from anything you’ve tried before. All the diets and exercise plans tell you what to do, and expect you to use ‘willpower’ to follow the plan. And the more ‘willpower’ you use, the more you think about the things that you aren’t supposed to eat, the more you think about skipping exercise. Eventually, ‘willpower’ becomes ‘will-weakness’ and you stop your food plan.

Hypnosis works differently. We bypass your conscious mind and speak directly to your unconscious mind, which is ultimately responsible for all your behavior. As we bypass your conscious mind, we bypass ‘willpower’ and enter a very different area of your mind: the area of your mind that does things effortlessly and without struggle. It is the area of your mind automatically creates the opportunities and space for doing the things you truly want to do. How successful would your diet be if you adopted healthy eating and exercise habits because you wanted to? Not because you tried to make yourself do it, but because you wanted to. It’s a big difference, and the big difference that can make the difference in your success.

Hypnosis is Self-Empowerment

Effective hypnosis always relies of empowering yourself to choose to the things that help you get the results that you want. For this reason, among others, we always emphasis what you want rather than what you want to avoid. Hypnosis always emphasizes your own power and you own control over your mind and body, and this is one reason why it is so effective. It is by controlling your thoughts, feelings, beliefs and actions that propels you to success.    Here are some examples of principles we may use in giving hypnotic suggestions.

  • Suggestions are always phrased in the positive. We make suggestions for what you want, rather than what you don’t want. Your unconscious mind is like a GPS–it will take you where you tell it to go. And when you enter directions into a GPS, you always tell it where you want to go. It just wouldn’t work if you tried to enter into all the places you didn’t want to go!
  • Hypnosis relies on the power of your own mind to activate all the things that help you achieve your goals. This is one reason why hypnosis is so effective across so many different kinds of changes you may want to make. Hypnosis helps you really take control of your own brain. And practically everything you do, if not everything, relies on you brain.
  • Weight loss hypnosis, for instance, reframes food as fuel for the body and mind. Food is not the enemy, it is fuel that helps keep your body strong and functional. Food is not a cure for negative emotions–emotional eating stops almost immediately with hypnosis.
  • Say Bye-Bye to Food Cravings: hypnosis effectively eliminates cravings for unhealthy foods. Imagine eating healthy foods because you want to and avoiding unhealthy foods simply because you don’t want them.
  • Visualize the Victory: Hypnotherapists will help you imagine yourself at your ideal weight or even just imagine a day of healthy eating. Such exercises can reprogram the mind for healthy eating, healthy exercise and reinforce the mindset necessary to achieve your goal.
