Hypnotherapy For Weight Loss

by Elly Hurley on 6 November, 2012

Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss One of the reasons why using hypnotherapy for weight loss is so effective and lasting is that it’s not a diet.

Imagine a process where you can eat whatever you want and still lose weight. Please note the highlighted word ‘whatever’ – there are no restrictions about what you can eat, instead you will find you begin to change your eating habits and eat less.

There are no bars, no shakes, no pills, no deprivation and no sacrifices. You are not told what you can and can’t eat. The moment somebody hears the word ‘diet’ they automatically think about all of the things they can’t have. If you are anything like me, as soon as you think you cannot have something, you want it.  

Let’s look at some of the benefits of using hypnotherapy for weight loss:

  • 95% of all diets fail,
  • You get to eat what you want,
  • You make healthier food choices,
  • You become consciously aware of what you are eating,
  • It is specific to your individual needs,
  • Recent studies in the UK have shown Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy (one of the weight loss hypnotherapy therapies available) has a 98% success rate for long lasting results (over 2 years).

Now let’s look at 7 reasons why hypnotherapy for weight loss is not a diet. Why diets don't work.

  1. You are not told what you can and you can’t eat. A hypnotherapist will deal with the underlying root cause of your eating habits and change those.
  2. You will become more consciously aware of what you are eating but you will not be limited by what you can eat.
  3. You are using the power of your mind to lose weight, and not relying on your willpower and self discipline to make the correct choices.
  4. You are not required to sacrifice your favourite foods.
  5. You focus on listening to what your body needs and fulfil that, you are not focused on a list of foods you can’t touch.
  6. There are no substitutes for meals (bars, pills, shakes), in fact you will find you begin to eat more regularly.
  7. Dieting is no fun and hard work. Hypnotherapy is relaxing, calm and energising and all the hard work is done by your brain behind the scenes.

Your mind is like a computer

Using hypnotherapy for weight loss is like reprogramming the software on a computer. Your brain is just like a computer, and the hypnotherapy allows your brain to be rewired and reprogrammed. Think of a baby. When it is hungry it cries and gets fed. It only takes in as much as it needs and when it feels full it stops. You needs today are no different to your needs as a baby, all that has happened if you have made changes based on things you have seen, heard and felt. So all we are doing with hypnotherapy is reprogramming this, and giving you the ability to eat only what you need to satisfy your hunger.    

Why keep repeating what hasn’t worked

If you are honest with yourself, how many diets have you tried that have failed? Unless you are one of the 5% who dieting has worked for long term (and if you are I doubt you’d be reading this) I would almost guarantee the answer is they have all failed. As Albert Einstein said, “insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”  

There are different hypnotherapy weight loss programs available including Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis, Hypno-Band, and general hypnosis for weight loss. So, perhaps it’s time to try something new and see for yourself just how effective hypnotherapy for weight loss really is.
