You want to lose weight, so you try diet after diet, but for some reason you can never stick to plan. You know the underlying principles to losing weight, eat less fatty foods, eat more healthy foods and burn the access calories with plenty of exercise.
Most of us know this; the problem is not the lack of knowledge but the lack of persistence, if only we could stay on track and not fall victim to that comforting, stress relieving chocolate bar on that miserable rainy day, when everything seems to be going wrong.
If only you could get the same comfort and pleasure from eating an apple instead. Well, what if there was a way you could train your brain to appreciate an apple the same way you appreciate that chocolate bar, do you think you’ll stop piling on the pounds and start losing some weight instead?
Yes, You guessed it, I’m talking about hypnosis. But does hypnosis really work for weight lost?
Let’s continue and hear what an expert in the field has to say about hypnosis and weight loss. Taken from Fit To Post Health a Yahoo news blog.
Does Hypnosis Work For Work For Weight Loss – An Experts View
Hypnosis is an ancient method that has been used to cope with different problems for thousands of years, including quitting smoking and dealing with insomnia.
Due to a lack of understanding and misrepresentation by the media, many think that hypnosis is unnatural and even supernatural. Actually, hypnosis just helps an individual to get into a deep stage of relaxation and gain motivation for achieving his or her goals.
Statistics from a study at Stanford University have shown that only about 10% to 15% of the U.S. population “cannot be hypnotized at all.” Hypnosis can be carried out by oneself or by a practitioner. It is important to check the credentials of your practitioner if you decide to go to one.
The two stages of hypnosis
According to hypnotist Rosemarie Schulman, hypnosis consists of two stages. The first stage is to “make the patient understand his/her behavior.” In this stage, you try to understand your own habits and identify the problems that lead to your gaining weight. What is the cause of your weight gain? Is it snacking too much on potato chips, stress, lack of sleep, etc.?
The second stage is to try to change the patient’s habits when the person is in a relaxed state of mind. Schulman mentions that a person is more open to suggestions when he or she is relaxed. Therefore, once the patient is relaxed, the hypnotist will offer suggestions to change the client’s behavior. The hypnotist may say things like, “The sugar cravings you have in the afternoon no longer interest you. The wonderful smell of fresh fruit, and its taste, now interest you and make you feel very strong.”
You can also carry out self-hypnosis. The most important thing to keep in mind when you are doing self-hypnosis is to maintain a positive attitude throughout the hypnotic state. Full article published here.
I have been fortunate to witness that hypnosis really does work, a good friend of mine had hypnosis performed on him to quit smoking, and now he can’t stand the sight or smell of cigarettes, and he smoked more cigarettes than Dot Cotton.
Thinking about it, I think I have unconsciously hypnotised myself, before I started eating healthy food on a daily basis, I would enjoy, at least once a week, a full-blown burger meal from any one of the popular fast food chains. Now just the thought of all that fat makes me cringe.
