Weight loss is both a mental and physical journey. We are told to "eat right and exercise". That sounds simple, yet why does the diet industry keep getting bigger, along with our waistlines? The one piece of the puzzle that's not addressed is the "head space problem". Our subconscious emotions and feelings will always defeat the logical part of the mind. Over eating and craving certain foods, such as those containing high levels of sugar, are not logical. It's always emotional. Diets don't change the feelings that make you eat. Research has already shown that people with eating and weight loss problems have them because they
have an emotional relationship with food. Feelings such anger, stress, anxiety and loneliness may be
temporarily numbed out with comfort food but then that comes at a high cost with feelings of guilt,
shame, lack of worthiness, and more weight gain. Hypnosis works to rewire your subconscious mind so that you naturally focus on choosing healthy food, with portions that encourage weight loss. It gets your mind working for you, not against you. The diet industry uses shaming, restricting or banning certain foods, labeling foods as good or bad, along with promoting expensive shakes and bars. Hypnotherapy uses the power of your mind to create an environment where it feels easy to adjust your habits and motivations. It's a tool that can help you change your eating behaviours so that certain previous practices become easier to resist. For ultimate results, hypnotherapy should be added to a treatment program that includes making
healthy lifestyle changes.
