Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss
Do you eat when you aren’t hungry, or go on eating long after you are full? Do you find yourself wondering why you’ve eaten something that you didn’t really want or even enjoy? Do you eat when you’re sad, or angry or happy, but not hungry?
We all know that a healthy diet and plenty of exercise is recommended for a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, even though we know what to do it’s not always that easy! Most of us have tried all kinds of diets in the past and research shows that one in three of us is on a diet at any one time.
Why People Struggle to Lose Weight
It is much easier said than done to only eat healthy amounts of food in order to maintain a healthy weight. For one reason, stress is a factor that causes many people to eat too much. If you constantly live with high levels of stress in your daily life, food can become a way for you to escape. Even if it feels like there are plenty of things in your life over which you have no control, you can still control the amount of food you take into your body.
There are many different methods and systems for losing weight, you may have already tried and failed with some of these. The reason that these other methods fail to achieve all that they promise, is that they fail to address the personal and emotional issues that allow you to succeed in becoming the slimmer and happier person you wish to be.
How Hypnotherapy Can Help You Lose Weight
Hypnotherapy effectively removes unhelpful habits and addresses problems in a positive way, establishing a more helpful and healthy emotional response to food, leaving the negative and uncomfortable feelings behind. Sometimes it is not so much a case of what you are eating, but what is eating you!
These issues need to be addressed to achieve lasting change. We will focus on your relationship with food rather than your weight – losing weight is a by-product of having a good relationship with food and your own body.
Benefits of Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss
If you find yourself overeating to compensate for stress in life, hypnotherapy will help you find other ways of coping with that stress, allowing you to eat healthy amounts and start losing weight. Hypnotherapy can then help to create different attitudes towards food and allow new eating habits to be developed.
All this helps you to start a positive cycle for yourself, helping you to feel better, to look better, for yourself.
