There’s no denying it – trying to lose weight can be a long and challenging journey. If you’ve ever tried and failed
to lose weight before then you probably know just how frustrating it can be – especially when feelings like stress, low self-esteem, sadness and boredom crop up.
It’s not unusual for people to get into a cycle of dieting, overeating, feeling guilty and dieting again. This is known as ‘yo-yo dieting’ and makes weight-loss difficult to sustain.
While fad diets and nutrition plans focus on what you eat and how often, hypnotherapy for weight-loss changes how you feel about what you eat. For instance – on a diet you might eat a carrot and wish you were eating a carrot cake, but with hypnotherapy you can learn to enjoy the carrot and not give that cake a second thought. It might be hard to imagine a world where you’d happily turn down your favourite food for something healthier, but with certain weight-loss hypnotherapy techniques it may be possible to change your thinking patterns and gain control over cravings in a way that doesn’t depress you.
By targeting the unconscious mind with powerful suggestion techniques, a hypnotherapist will help you develop a new, positive relationship with food and exercise. The aim of hypnotherapy for weight-loss is to make you feel confident about your body, change any negative thoughts about eating and help you lose weight responsibly without impacting your emotional well-being.
