Hypnosis Weight Loss
by Patrick Austin
This method for weight loss is certainly unconventional but it
does have the potential to work, if you have an open mind. The
key behind hypnosis weight loss is that it trains your mind to
think differently about food. Ive said this before and Ill
say it again, you need to eat less calories than you burn to lose
weight. Hypnosis weight loss trains your brain to signal to your
body to stop eating sooner, and eat smaller amounts. If you eat
less calories, you will lose weight.
Hypnosis weight loss would be a great tool for someone who has
an injury and cannot exercise for an extended period of time.
Or, if you have an illness that prevents you from being active.
Finally, if you lead an extremely busy life and have no time to
workout, hypnotizing yourself to eat less would be a smart way
to keep the pounds off.
So what is hypnosis? It is simply a state of deep relaxation
and intense mental focus that can help you 're-program' old attitudes
and beliefs about eating.
Here are some benefits to hypnosis weight loss:
Easy to Use -You can simply listen to a CD or tape each night
before you go to bed, and let the program do the rest. Or, you
can set up an appointment to see a hypno-therapist (though, they
can be rather expensive). All of the changes in behavior and attitude
to food occur at an unconscious level.
Increased Motivation - If the main reason you can't lose weight
is due to the lack of discipline and motivation, hypnosis would
be helpful. A hypnosis weight loss program, could boost your self-discipline,
and almost effortlessly guide you towards behaviors that will
result in permanent weight loss. As you start to see the weight
come off, your motivation will naturally increase, bolstering
your commitment to the process.
There has been scientific research done on hypnosis weight loss.
The studies have been predominately positive. One study examined
109 individuals between the ages of 17-67, who completed a hypnosis
weight loss program. At the end of the 9 week trial results showed
a significant weight loss for all individuals.
A 1997 study showed an average weight loss of 12 pounds for all
of the participants using the hypnosis weight loss technique.
