Weight Loss How to Lose Weight and Keep it off with Hypnosis

Eaten too much over the holiday season? Thinking about going back on a diet?

Read on. You just might change your mind.

You see, diets are fine - as far as they go. But the difficultly is that you just can't spend the rest of your life on a diet and, sooner or later, you have to come off them. And that's when, for most of us, the weight just seems to pile back on.

Why is this? We were doing so well and now we aren't. What happened?

To fully understand, we need to see the fundamental flaw in our approach to losing weight.

We need to realise that diets, though often effective in helping to shed the pounds in the short term, are pretty bad at helping us to keep them off.

The reason for this is simple:

Diets are based on the principle of denial. 'Don't eat this!' 'Don't touch that!' 'Don't have too much!' So you deny yourself until you find your weight loss program delivering just what you want - a slimmed-down you.

And then a feeling inside just seems to call out to you: 'You've been so good, you've done so well - you deserve a little reward. After all, you've denied yourself time and again; you've lost weight, so now you can eat normally once more...'

The problem is that 'normal' all too often means eating in the old way, the fattening way. And before you know it, on go the pounds and its back to square one.

But now you feel even worse. You did so well. You did lose weight. And now you've gone and thrown it all away.

Then come the terrible feelings of failure. The vicious cycle of disappointment, self-recrimination, perhaps even self-pity - and eating in order to compensate for those difficult feelings just seems to take over.

You feel so very bad. 'To hell with it', you think, 'I feel lousy and food makes me feel better so I'll eat something. Heck, I can always go back on a diet...'

You know the rest of the story: the more you eat the worse you feel and the worse you feel the more you eat.

If this sounds all too familiar then perhaps what you need is a completely new approach to losing weight, one based on something more sustainable than denial and diets.

When we have trouble controlling our weight and there really is no medical reason for it, then the simple truth is that we are eating in an attempt to satisfy something other than hunger.

We are eating in an attempt to satisfy feelings and emotions. And no amount of food can do that because food can really only satisfy hunger.

You see, the reason why you have been having difficulty controlling your weight is because somewhere in the past your subconscious mind has taken on the false belief that food can satisfy uncomfortable feelings. In all probability, the patterns of emotional eating have been 'programmed' into your mind when you were a child.

Now, emotions and feelings are triggered in the subconscious mind. So the only truly effective way to tackle emotional eating is through the subconscious mind.

And this is where advanced transformational hypnotherapy can be of real help in bringing about permanent weight loss.

Through this kind of hypnotherapy, we can go directly to the underlying reasons of why a person overeats.

Once the reasons are uncovered, effectively dealt with and neutralised, the person is free to eat as he or she was intended to eat. They are released from the compulsion to eat in response to emotional needs and difficult feelings.

They become free to eat in a natural and truly normal manner.

The emotional and compulsive reasons for overeating having been dealt with and neutralized, powerful positive hypnotic suggestions are then 'programmed' into the subconscious mind, enabling the person to eat smaller amounts of nourishing food and yet feel pleasantly full and entirely satisfied.

With the aid of advanced transformational hypnotherapy, the subconscious mind becomes the person's greatest ally, making weight loss a painless and entirely natural process.

If you have had enough of deprivation, if you are tired of the vicious cycle of on-and-off dieting and self-recrimination then why not go to the root cause and eliminate your difficulty once and for all?

With advanced transformational hypnotherapy you really can get the permanent weight loss you need - without the pain of denial.

Do Slimming Pills and Supplements Really Lead To Weight Loss
We are now a nation of overweight people. The terrible truth is that it has now become normal to be fat. In fact, more than half of us are now either clinically obese or very much overweight. The epidemic of obesity that has swept through North America, the UK and Australia has brought with it a host of major health problems from diabetes to heart disease. Nowadays, being overweight and being sick has become the rule rather than the exception. It is now the norm. Why are so many people...

Putting on Weight with Hypnotherapy
Being underweight can be a real challenge for those who struggle to gain weight but just can't seem to do so. In modern society, with so many suffering from obesity and overweight, precious little attention is given to those who have the opposite problem. Yet being and feeling skinny, scrawny and underweight can have a really negative effect, not only on the individual's health, but on his or her confidence and self esteem. Hard gainers very often believe that it's their metabolism that's...

Top 10 Tips for Weight Loss from a Psychotherapist
We see many clients who are having trouble controlling their weight, here in our UK hypno-psychotherapy practice. Here are my top 10 tips for helping to manage your eating: 1. Never eat while watching TV - When we watch television, or sit in front of a computer screen, we tend to automatically enter into a form of hypnosis. In this state our critical faculty becomes disengaged, which is why we can cry at a sad movie that we know is not real, and why time can pass so rapidly when in front of...

Self Hypnosis for Stress Management and Stress Relief
Stress is simply the way we feel when too much pressure is placed on us. It is such a far reaching condition that its effects are thought to be felt in practically every kind of illness, every kind of disease. Yet so few of us really have an effective stress management strategy in place in order to bring about the essential stress relief that we need. A certain amount of stress, of course, can be beneficial. In small to moderate amounts, it really doesn't hurt and, indeed, may be necessary...

What is Arthritis How Can it be Treated
? Many of us will experience the pain of arthritis at some stage of our lives. It comes in more than 200 different types. Though generally associated with the aging process, arthritis can also show itself in the very young and at all ages in between. In this article I describe some of its more common forms and their treatment. Osteoarthritis There is no specific cause of osteoarthritis, a condition that affects a large number of the population; however it is known that excessive wear and...

Hair Loss Hair Loss Treatment
Losing your hair can seriously affect a person's self image and self esteem. With men, however, it is something that is more or less accepted as a natural occurrence by society at large. In fact, about fifty percent of the general population experience normal hair loss by the time they reach 50 years old. We may not like it, but sooner or later half of us are forced to accept it. Hair loss in women, however, is thought of in an entirely different context. Male pattern baldness is an all...

Pain Relief with Hypnosis Managing Chronic Pain with Hypnotherapy
Pain is something each one of us has experienced at some point in our life. Though few people actually welcome it, few would deny that it has an essential role to play in our survival. After all, without pain, we simply wouldn't be aware that tissue damage is taking place somewhere in our body and that we need to do something - fast. In any approach to pain, of course, we need to first check with a qualified doctor or other medical practitioner. It is essential that we get a proper medical...

Levels of the Mind Why Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Work
As a psychotherapist who uses hypnosis I must admit that sometimes it feels like I have two separate people in my big reclining therapy chair at the same time. The two certainly are related and they seem to know quite a bit about each other. They appear to have passed through some remarkably similar experiences. But they just don't seem to communicate very well with each other. One person is entirely rational and logical; they analyze and compare, measure and debate. When I speak with these...

Hypnotherapy for Blushing and Flushing
Blushing is something that everyone has experienced at one time or another. Yet the bizarre thing is that, despite its universality, nobody has really uncovered the reason why we blush. We do know that blushing is a natural response which occurs spontaneously in anyone experiencing a powerful emotion such as embarrassment, anger or excitement, but we do not know why such emotions should produce this kind of flushing. It has been theorized that perhaps blushing is a consequence of a primitive...

How to Stop Procrastination with Hypnosis
There are probaly a few people sitting there right now thinking: 'What exactly is procrastination? Well, I'll just look it up later...' And in that thought is the answer. Procrastination is simply putting things off, delaying things - whether those things are important, family or work related. If you've ever left something to the very last minute, then you are engaging in the awful habit that is procrastination. If you have ever missed opportunities in life because of needless delay, or...
