The Joys of Weight Loss Hypnosis
I know firsthand that weight loss hypnosis works. Twenty-five years ago, I lugged around 260 pounds. Thanks to hypnosis, healthy eating and exercise, I ditched 120 pounds and have kept it off for twenty-four years.
As we are in the midst of a global obesity pandemic, I am more passionate now than ever about helping people lose weight, because this pandemic is preventable.
Nearly one in three (32 percent or a staggering 23 million) American children are obese or overweight and more than 80 percent of these children will likely be obese as adults. According to the World Health Organization, obesity is the top health problem in the world, overtaking AIDS. The world’s people are now 7 billion pounds overweight! The incidence of obesity in the U.S. has increased by 70 percent over the last 30 years for adults and by 85 percent over the same time period for children.
Study after study has shown “…that hypnosis can more than double the effects”1 of traditional weight loss approaches and that “…the benefits of hypnosis increase over time.”2 In numerous studies, those who received hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of those not receiving hypnosis and kept the weight off two years after treatment ended.3
It’s estimated that 80 percent of obese adults have at least one or more health concerns including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis, gall stones, sleep apnea and certain cancers. For most children and adults, obesity can be prevented and the health consequences are reversible with a change in diet, weight loss and exercise. As a nation, we just can’t afford this needless health care crisis.
Hypnosis for weight loss is a process that helps you take control of your health, rather than letting food control you. You can be in control of your relationship to food, enjoy eating healthy, nutritious meals and even learn to enjoy moving your body. Using the power of your unconscious mind, you can regain control of what you eat, how much you eat and, ultimately, your weight.
One client wrote about her weight loss hypnosis experience: “Everything has changed. My relationship with myself is the biggest change. I’m finding so much about myself that is special and am learning to love myself with the gift of knowing that the only thing I can change is me.”
Hypnosis has proven effective in halting unhealthy cravings and instilling desires for healthy foods. Your voracious need for sweets, baked goods and processed foods can vanish.
Imagine being able to bake a sheet of cookies and only eat one – and none of the raw dough and none of the chocolate chips right from the bag! With hypnosis for weight loss, the seemingly impossible suddenly becomes possible. Just imagine, no more diets—just healthy long-lasting lifestyle changes.
