Hypnosis for Weight Loss
Hypnosis is very effective in helping people to need to lose weight as an experienced Hypnotherapist will deal with the underlying causes and thinking patterns behind a person's weight problem. It really doesn't matter if you need to lose only a few pounds or several - once these issues have been resolved the weight should drop off easily.
This article will look behind some of the reasons why someone becomes overweight. It is important that your Hypnotherapist understands completely why you have been struggling to lose weight or to maintain a healthy weight.
The most obvious reasons are over-eating or under-eating as the body stores fat in both cases, in order to use it at a future date. If you are eating more calories than your body needs then clearly you need to cut down on the culprit foods, however everyone has different dietary needs so your therapist will need to have an understanding of food combinations and healthy and junk foods.
Why do I overeat?
There can be many different reasons why you overeat. If you were brought up in an environment where you were plied with sweets or cakes as a reward then your mind may have formed an association between food and pleasure (reward). On the other hand, if food was scarce when you were younger you might find yourself compensating for what you felt was missing then.
Some people see food as a comfort - perhaps you are trying to fill an emotional gap and use food as a pacifier. Others may feel that by gorging themselves they will become unattractive and so avoid relationships which they feel unable to handle (as in the case of someone who has been hurt in the past and doesn't want to put themselves into a position where they will be hurt again.
Will I miss food if I use hypnosis for weight loss?
If you have tried dieting you're probably all too well aware of how your thoughts constantly revolved around the next meal or calories or points. Hypnotherapy helps by teaching your subconscious mind to think and feel differently about food. You will learn to accept that you eat to live, not the other way around.
So, the answer to this question is a resounding No. There is always plenty of food around so there is no reason why you should miss it.
You will only eat when you are truly hungry and when you have had enough to eat you will stop. There is little worse than having a very full and bloated stomach - not being able to feel comfortable and having your clothes feel tight around your waist.
What other reasons could there be why I can't achieve a decent weight loss?
Is your lifestyle sedentary? Since your weight began to increase, what changes have occurred in your lifestyle? Lack of exercise can cause weight gain, as can an excessive intake of alcohol or snacking between meals.
Or perhaps you don't eat a lot but what you do eat is starchy, maybe your eating habits are erratic or your lifestyle means that you spend a lot of time going out for meals or eating the wrong sort of food at work because of a lack of choice.
In the latter case you could prepare a lunch box with food that you know is good for you. There is plenty of information about nutritional facts around so I won't go into what is and isn't healthy (maybe in a later article).
Most Hypnotherapists will want to see you a few times in order to see how you are progressing and to address other issues that crop up. It may be necessary to use regression to take you back to the cause (if you are not consciously aware of what this could be). Keeping a food diary is a good idea as it's surprising how those little snacks can add up.

Easy Weight Loss
Let go of excess weight easily and effortlessly with this professionally-recorded MP3 download from World Hypnosis.
The task of losing weight can be a difficult one - while some lose weight with something as simple as sticking to a dietary plan, others find that any method they try offers no results. Further more, anyone who has ever been on a diet will tell you - they are obsessed by counting calories and the next meal. Diets can be agony!
Weight Loss: All in the Mind?
Probably the most important aspect overlooked by those wanting to lose weight is framing their mind to adhere to their goal. Weight loss takes a concerted effort, not just a short term attempt. Dissuaded by a lack of weight loss in the short term, people often revert to their old ways and resume the gain of weight. Hypnotherapy enables you to adopt a positive, persistent and ultimately effective approach to losing weight that other methods are unable to match.
How Hypnosis Helps in Losing Weight
The good news is that you can lose weight and attain your ideal shape and size without having to deprive yourself - hypnosis can help to reprogram your mind so that you only want to eat as little or as much as is necessary for you to attain your goal. You will not only reach your goal of losing weight - you'll also enjoy the process.
Exercise in your Sleep
Visualize an exercise routine and gain the motivation to lose weight.
Imagine being able to go to sleep every night and get all the exercise you need to tone up your body.
No, this is not something you'll simply dream about; this powerful hypnosis MP3 session will teach your subconscious mind how to mimic the exercises you need in order to gain a slimmer, healthier body - and you will still wake up feeling refreshed and alert.
Research has proved that visualization can actually help to stimulate neural pathways within the brain so that we can find it easier to accomplish an activity, whether it be something we are familiar with or not.
You can enjoy a good night's sleep - allow your subconscious mind to exert its natural control over your body and lose weight easily without the need for diets or excessive physical exercise.
