Hypnosis for weight loss is usually not the first thought when people are looking for a weight loss plan, however, it could be the easiest and most effective way to lose unwanted weight.
Weight loss is usually accomplished by diet, exercise, medication and surgery. Sometimes one of these methods is used and sometimes a combination of any or all of these methods. Well there is another way to lose weight that is often overlooked and that is by hypnosis. Yes as weird as it may sound, weight loss is possible through hypnosis. As a matter of fact, many people find hypnosis easy, safe and effective for weight loss.
Many people having to lose weight are struggling with unhealthy habits such as poor food choices. Through hypnosis you can be guided toward healthy options. Your eating patterns are recalibrated and restored back to your original, innate, internal program.
You should know that the primary objective of hypnosis is to change the attitude and perspective of a person in a certain situation. When you choose weight loss by hypnosis, you will be given new suggestions and an alternative reality about how food looks, feels and tastes.
By giving the subconscious these suggestions, it allows the mind to realize that there are other options aside from the one that it has been used to. Your subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between reality and fantasy, so when you introduce it to a new perspective it can broaden your outlook quickly to a new environment. However, you should keep in mind that hypnosis is not a magic bullet. It is simply a tool. It may or may not work for you.
If you are submissive and give into the idea of hypnosis for weight loss can work easily for you but if you are resistant, it may not work at all. In addition, even though hypnosis is an excellent aid for weight loss you should not rely on it alone. According to Dr. David Katz, a professor at Yale University and an ABC medical contributor, hypnosis is not a sole solution for weight loss and weight control. In order for you to achieve your desired weight you have to also follow a proper diet and exercise program. Hypnosis just makes it that much easier to do that.
A major way a hypnotherapist starts to alter your perception is through disassociation. Often times, people have a strong inclination to associate themselves with the images and thoughts that go through their minds. Once they undergo hypnosis, they become capable of disassociating themselves from their thoughts. Hence, they begin to realize that they are the observers of these thoughts and not the thoughts themselves.
Aside from disassociation, hypnotherapists also use reframing. This technique is crucial for people who want to achieve weight loss by hypnosis. Usually, when you associate yourself with your thoughts, you also believe them. So when you say discouraging things to yourself your mind tends to believe what you are telling it. Reframing is a way of viewing and experiencing events, ideas, concepts and emotions to find more positive alternatives.
So when picking a hypnotherapist, you want to be careful to choose one with experience, reliability and professionalism. Also, please remember that this method of weight loss is not recommended for those with epilepsy, serious psychological disorders or post-traumatic stress disorder. And as always, you should consult a physician before starting any type of weight loss plan.
I suggest this for a couple of reasons. First, with the internet at our fingertips, it is easy to get information and testimonials about specific hypnotherapists. My favorite is Steven G. Jones. I have learned so much from him over the years and his reputation precedes him. Just Google his name and you will see what I mean.
The second reason I suggest purchasing an online program is because it is cheaper than office hypnotherapy sessions. I charge $90 per hour and require at least four sessions for weight loss, Steven charges a lot more for a private session. A good online hypnosis for weight loss program will cost you under $100 and you can listen to it over and over again.
Dr. Jones offers an extensive hypnosis for weight loss program containing five CD’s and a month of coaching. He also offers a complete 60 money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied, no questions, and no hassles. I know this for a fact because I returned a recent purchase, not because it didn’t help but because I realized I already had it, oops. A couple clicks of the button and my money was returned to me.
I have included a video of an interview with Steven so that you can see for yourself what great work he does.
