Hypnosis provides suggestions to the subconscious mind to change the way we think — which in turn can positively impact our behaviors.
So can it work to help you lose weight?
The simple answer is a resounding YES! More and more people are exploring hypnosis as a means to lose weight and to keep those pounds off over time.
There are many ways in which hypnosis can be used to help you reach your weight loss goals:
Changing what you eat, how much you eat, and how often you eat are important factors in any successful weight loss program. Whether you are a secret binge eater or have overwhelming food cravings leading to overeating, hypnosis can help you change the way you think and feel about food.
By providing the mind with hypnotic suggestions for healthier food options and eating the right portion sizes at that right time, your mind can be a powerful weight loss tool. While changing the way you think and feel about food, hypnosis makes it easy to overcome stress and emotional eating.
Let’s face it, only a certain percentage of the population is consistent with exercise The rest of us have to almost force ourselves to be active or end up procrastinating it out of existence. Unfortunately, apart from diet, exercise is the second most important factor in weight loss and maintaining that ideal weight.
Imagine if you could change the way you feel about exercise and enjoyed making it a part of your lifestyle.The good news is hypnosis can guide you to gain the motivation to get off the couch and exercise your way towards achieving your weight loss goal.
Some people who struggle with losing weight are aware how it may relate to the way they see themselves or their self-image or body image. In other words, a person who is overweight might think of themselves as a “fat” person and therefore behave the way they think someone overweight would act.
Thin people have the same subconscious thought process, except they act and behave in a manner that maintains a healthy weight. This is the reason many people, who have lost vast amounts of weight, do not recognize themselves in the mirror (for months) after losing a substantial amount of weight. Hypnosis can help retrain your brain so you see yourself as a thin person and, therefore, act and behave like one!
