Some people turn to hypnosis for weight loss as their goal to lose those extra pounds. Hypnosis offers a solution. But, how effective is hypnosis for weight loss?
Some people feel that reasons for the success of hypnosis for weight becomes clear if you suffer from weight problems and just can’t seem to find a diet that suits you.
With this sort of problem you begin to realize that it isn’t really your weight that is that problem. There is an underlying reason preventing you from achieving your weight loss goal.
In most cases there are psychological reasons preventing you from losing weight. For example, you may crave unhealthy snacks rather than healthy ones. It may sound strange, but eating foods that are bad for you may make you happier and more comfortable. Or, you may eat the wrong amount of food whenever you are unhappy, uncomfortable, or stressed. Hypnotism can help with these annoying habits.
Hypnotism for weight loss goes straight to the root of the problem which helps to modify your behavior. Your main problem could be your unhealthy eating patterns. So, after your hypnotic treatment your mind will not tell you to eat fatty foods. You will be told to eat healthy ones. And, instead of reaching for an unhealthy snack when you’re worried or stressed you will find alternative ways to manage stress. This behavior modification is what brings about successful weight loss and a better lifestyle.
How do I know hypnotism for weight loss works?
Since hypnosis modifies your behavior at the source you stand a greater chance of keeping the weight off rather than putting it on again. A study that appeared in the Journal of Clinical Psychology in 1985 tested a group of people who used hypnotism for weight loss and a group who did not. While both groups lost weight during the study the hypnosis group continued to lose weight after the study had finished and achieved their weight loss goals. The group that did not have the behavior modification benefits of hypnosis did not achieve this.
