The problem is the way the body deals with so called ‘dieting.’ Motivational Hypnotherapy can provide a totally different way of dealing with weight loss. By delving deep into your subconscious, it helps to find out the reason for your unhealthy eating habits.
Struggling to lose weight is an on-going fight for many people; both men and women alike. In today’s appearance conscious society the constant pictures on social media platforms and magazines of stick thin celebrities and public figures can almost make you feel like a social pariah if you carry a few extra pounds. There’s a multitude of diets offering unattainable miracle results, and when they are endorsed by household names, it’s no wonder people become brainwashed into thinking that they’ll end up looking the same. Perhaps, if you follow them, you may even end up losing a few pounds, but the likelihood of the weight returning, plus a bit extra, is all too common.
According to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, a huge percentage of Americans gain weight in the winter, which is not lost during the summer months. This can then become an ongoing problem with the weight gain accumulating over the years. This is also a fact verified by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disorders. The problem is the way the body deals with so called ‘dieting.’ If you cut your food intake to less than your body needs on a day to day basis, it thinks it is being starved. Your body then slows down your metabolism and tries to store as much food as possible as fat. When you start to eat normally once again, the body stays in this ‘ration’ mode, and the weight piles back on. Motivational Hypnotherapy provides a different approach to dealing with weight loss. By delving deep into your subconscious, it helps to find out the reason for your unhealthy eating habits. The reasons for your bad eating habits could be anything from teasing in childhood to parents who themselves ate in an unhealthy manner, but by finding out the crux of the problem, motivational hypnotherapy can help to alter these deep seated beliefs; thereby, guiding you towards a complete change in attitude towards food and exercise.
Hypnosis for weight loss has been greatly studied, researched and documented by doctors Harold B.Crasilneck Ph.D. and James A. Hall M.D. They have found after extensive tests that Hypnotherapy can often help in the treatment of obesity, and this is confirmed in their book – Clinical Hypnosis: Principles and Applications. The thing is, shedding the pounds isn’t just a case of eating correctly and exercising. First you need to start with motivation, and the motivation to do this starts from within. If you’ve followed the cycle of so many Americans of losing weight, putting it back on, losing it, putting it back on and so forth, your attitude towards your weight becomes despondent. Gradually you change from thinking ‘I can’ to thinking ‘I can’t.’ And if you don’t understand the reason why you have weight issues in the first place, you can end up so called yo-yo dieting for the rest of your life.
This is where Motivational Hypnotherapy's approach is different from all the other weight loss methods. It deals with the cause rather than the symptoms. By allowing you to change the very reason you are overweight, Motivational Hypnotherapy can help you win your battle to lose weight and keep it off.
