This skepticism is generally based on the fact that people realize how hard it can be to do stuff like lose weight and quit smoking. It can be particularly hard to lose weight as it’s all too easy to fall into the yo-yo diet trap. Here you try out a new diet and lose the weight you need – then, you stop the diet and relax and the weight just comes back. Before you know it you’ll be back to square one….
But, with hypnosis this doesn’t need to happen. Many people find it hard to lose weight simply because they view food in the wrong way. They may, for example, view sweet and fatty foods as desirable because they were rewarded with these kinds of foods when they were young and behaved well. Or, they may associate the short rush you get with certain foods with feeling good so they reach for candy when they feel low or stressed.
Hypnosis can simply help you re-program the way your brain feels about food. It can stop your cravings for the wrong food types and introduce cravings for healthy food instead. It can give you the confidence to stick with a healthy eating and exercise plan and it can help you manage the issues you may have with the food you eat.
