Weight loss isn’t about losing weight but it’s getting rid of what you don’t want. “Loss” implies that we want to keep something.
Lived from waste to waist?
Hypnotherapy for weight control is not about dieting or gyms…
All living things want to survive. Our subconscious wants us to live the longest we can, which means that our bodies would want to be a natural, healthy weight. But somewhere along the line our minds have become mis-programmed. Eating, and the emotional reasons behind consuming calories in excess, is personal to each individual. However, there can be in addition, practical and behavioural habits towards eating that can be addressed in hypnosis.
Many overweight people have difficulty reaching their ideal weight due to believing they have no self- control, mostly due to the rocky “Yo-yo” dieting. Our diet industry tells us we are weak – too weak to diet. Most diets are unrealistic and involve some alternative way to “eating normally” – buying into the dynamic that we are not slim enough to eat like ordinary people. When we buy a product and it doesn’t work we return it and ask for our money back….when we buy a diet and it doesn’t work we say there’s something wrong with ME. The diet industry is a multi million pound industry…. would it be if it worked?
Why calorie count? Why measure your weight? Just belt it!
How can hypnotherapy help?
Hypnosis tackles the underlying reasons for our brain’s faulty wiring, and by communicating with the subconscious and “re-aligning” the neural pathways, it can alter our perspective on what we “want” to eat., Subsequently the day to day behavioural living can be altered. Having taken away the original desire, work can be done with planning for success- including reducing stress and increasing the desire to exercise.
Using hypnotherapy we can ask the subconscious to modify lifestyle and we can work with increasing the will power in the right, constructive direction. We can evoke the desire to change for healthy natural reasons without causing distress to the body or the mind.
Factors such as old behaviours, feelings and emotions, habits and exercise level can all be altered during the hypnotic process simply and easily, so successful weight control will continue for the rest of our lives. As hypnotherapists we believe that if you know what you should be eating and what exercise you should be taking then you don’t need to be educated on what you should eat and what exercise to do to lose weight . All you need is the “how” to make all you know happen.
Hypnotherapy simply removes your subconscious programming from getting in the way of your success.
Dieting doesn’t work – here are the top 5 reasons…..
1. People who diet don’t lose weight in a way that last
This is because when we diet we experience short-term weight loss, which usually lasts no more than six months. Then this is followed by weight regain – usually more weight is gained than was lost. Hypnotherapy breaks this cycle by tackling the underlying causes and changes behaviour for good.
2. Dieting disrupts our natural body processes.
When we lose wight rapidly we put our bodies in a stressed unnatural state. The body’s reaction is to defend itself by stopping weight loss and does this by decreasing metabolism, heart rate, temperature, and sexual function, as well as intellectual, emotional, and social activity. Hypnotherapy weight control does not stress the body – on the contrary it is relaxed and weight loss is gradual and easy.
3. Dieting can lead to eating disorders.
Most experts agree that the high rate of eating disorders, especially amongst the young. is due in part to high numbers of people restricting food and becoming chronic dieters.
4. Dieting causes food preoccupation.
Unfortunately when we diet we spend a great deal of time thinking about food and eating. This “drive to eat” when food is limited is believed to be a survival trait against starvation. Hypnotherapy for weight control helps us to think of food in a natural, healthy way again – and food can be enjoyed not feared.
5. Dieting leads to chaotic eating patterns such as binge eating.
Dieting by definition disrupts normal eating. When we diet we override internal signals of hunger thus there can be confusion as to when we are hungry or when we are full. Hypnotherapy for weight control allows us to subconsciously pursue a natural eating pattern in which food and mealtimes no longer become the focal points of our days.
