Lose Weight With Hypnotherapy
How can I lose weight? What’s the best way to get rid of fat? Which diet is the best one for me? People looking to lose weight ask themselves, and everyone around them, these questions all the time. But weight loss doesn’t always mean dieting. Hypnotherapy and the techniques used during hypnosis are fast becoming the most popular way to lose weight without the need for expensive and time-consuming diets.
Crash dieting to reduce the pounds and a dramatic exercise regime can be detrimental to your health and many healthcare professionals consider this a dangerous way to approach weight loss. Modern, trendy dieting techniques involving the avoidance of certain foods or sticking to one food group can lead to other complications with your health. And even if you do manage to slim down, keeping the weight off is a whole new ball game.
Hypnotherapy taps into the subconscious to help Weight Loss
Hypnotherapy approaches weight loss from a different perspective that has proven to be effective time and time again. Hypnotherapy understands that successful dieting is habitual. A bad diet comes from bad habits. A healthy and well-balanced diet comes from the habit of doing something right, over and over again. Choosing hypnosis could be the answer to all your questions.
Hypnotherapy works by inducing a trance-like state in which you are fully aware of your surroundings. Once in this state, known as hypnosis, you are open to suggestion from the hypnotherapist and able to take over involuntary thoughts, feelings and behaviour that reside in the subconscious part of the mind. The mind is made of two parts, the conscious and subconscious. The conscious side takes control of decision making, hypnotherapy taps into the subconscious which responds only to way it has been previously programmed. This is where habits are formed and in the case of weight gain, the bad habits.
Using hypnotherapy to lose weight
When in your hypnotic state, the hypnotherapist can begin to make suggestions on how to break your bad habits and form new better ones. Therefore, in the case of weight loss, keeping the weight off and eating the right foods, you won’t need to diet. Hypnotherapy simply suggests to your subconscious to form the habits of eating less, eating the right food at the right time, stopping eating when you feel full and becoming more active. Perhaps more importantly, hypnotherapy can make you start to feel good about yourself.
One of the biggest problems that people who are overweight struggle with is self-esteem. Putting yourself down or being put down by others is detrimental to your mental well-being. When you are emotionally fragile, you probably reach for the food and it’s typically the wrong sort of food for weight loss. Hypnotherapy gives a boost to your confidence.
