Hypnosis For Weight Loss
We know, losing weight is hard. Even if you manage to make some progress, keeping the weight off can be just as hard. But what if there was an easier way? Can hypnosis be used for weight loss? If so, how does it work and how long does it take?
How Do You Lose Weight With Hypnosis?
It might sound a little TOO good to be true right?
Lie down, put on a hypnotherapy weight loss mp3 and listen to some hypnotherapy to lose weight. Great, sign me up!
But is it really that easy? How does it work? How effective is it and where’s the proof? They don’t really dangle a watch in front of your eyes do they…?
Let’s have a look!
How Hypnosis Can Work For Weight Loss:
So, most of us are smart enough to understand that you can’t just go to a single hypnotherapy session, lie down and be guided through some mental scenarioes and then watch in awe as the weight just falls off.
Hypnosis is not a magic solution or a quick fix.
Losing weight is always going to be about good habits like eating well and doing exercise (boring answer we know). But lets be honest, sometimes working out, eating healthy and avoid sugar can be hard.
But what if it wasn’t as hard? What if going towards the healthy option in the fridge and being eager to hit the gym was your normal? Do you think it would be easier to lose weight?
That’s how hypnotherapy can help you lose weight. It works indirectly by improving your feelings, patterns and unconscious motivations.
Hypnotherapy Strategies For Losing Weight:
Okay so now we know generally how hypnosis can help us eat healthier and feel more inclined to do that naturally.
But what are the specifics, how can it actually help day to day?
- Hypnosis can be used to encourage or maximise your motivation to eat well. This will usually be done by a guided hypnotherapy session which would take the listener through the process of feeling amazing when facing a particular situation (ie when wanting to prepare a healthy meal)
- Hypnosis can be used in an almost pavlovian sense to bring about feelings of restlessness which can be resolved by doing some exercise at a certain time each day
- Guided hypnosis can be used to create a mental journey. A series of subtle suggestions can build a picture in your subconscious ind of each stage of the journey of weight loss and how GREAT it will feel as you lose weight. Vividly describing the way you feel, the way you look and how other people look at you in a positive way can be extremely motivational
- Some Practitioners often use age progression techniques. This is where you visulise and feel what it’s like to be your future self, feeling and looking great. Once you’re back in everyday life after these sessions, that mental image sticks in your subconscious and make sit much easier to behave in ways that will fulfil that vision
These are just some of the specific techniques involved in hypnotherapy when looking at weight loss. Different hypnotherapists will have their own methods which have worked well for their clients.
Hypnotherapy For Weight Loss – Case Study
Okay so that’s some info and it’s kind of helpful, but it’s always helpful to see how hypnosis affects real people. This case study has been taken from a hypnotherapist call Alix Needham. The case study describes the process her patient went through and how she approached her weight loss journey.
Jasmine, a 24 year old woman who was quickly approaching her wedding date.
” I was getting married and desperately wanted to fit into my wedding dress. The problem was I was about one size too big. It fitted when I tried it on about six months ago. But since then the weight had been piling on. I was so angry with myself.”
Negative emotions and thoughts about her wedding was creating a vicious cycle. The worse she felt emotionally, the more she ate. Instead of being excited for her wedding, she began feeling anxious and stressed.
” I actually started to put weight on, when in reality I was desperate to lose it. Moreover I was getting depressed at the thought of my big day. In particular not looking how I wanted to look. Just because I couldn’t control my weight. I had tried everything, classes, pills, exercise, even thought about a gastric band. I was that desperate.”
Jasmine went through a explorative process with her hypnotherapist, looking at the root causes of her negative feelings around food. Once these feeiling were identified, guided hypnosis was used to change the way she responded emotionally to certain situations, specifically her wedding.
Instead of feeling anxiety and then using food as a way to relieve the anxiety, Jasmine began to retain her brain to think of her wedding with feeling of hope and excitement.
Jasmine was able to retain her negative thoughts and begin to think positively about her wedding. She was able to break the vicious mental cycle she had become entangled in and allow herself to become healthy and happy again.
I got married in July and the wedding dress was a perfect fit.
