These more people are turning to hypnotism to achieve a goal. You may want to quit smoking, get rid of you phobias, or lose weight. For all of these hypnosis offers a solution. But, how effective is hypnotism for weight loss?
If you look at hypnotism for weight loss then the reasons behind the success of this method becomes clear. If you suffer from weight problems, whether you constantly are on a yo-yo diet or can’t seem to find the motivation to get on a diet that suits you, then you probably already know that your problem is not really your weight. There is another underlying problem preventing you from achieving your goal.
In the majority of cases people cannot lose weight effectively because of some psychological issue that prevents them from reaching their goal. You may, for example, naturally crave unhealthy foods rather than healthy ones. Eating unhealthy foods may make you happier and more comfortable. Or, you may eat the wrong foods or the wrong amount of food whenever you are stressed, unhappy, or uncomfortable. In either case hypnotism for weight loss can help.
Hypnotism for weight loss helps because it goes straight to the root of the problem which can be your unhealthy eating patterns, and helps modify your behavior. So, after this kind of treatment your mind won’t tell you to eat sugary or fatty foods. It will tell you to eat healthy ones. And, your mind won’t tell you to reach for a snack when you’re worried or stressed. Instead you will find alternative ways to manage stress. This behavior modification is the key to successful weight loss and keeping it off.
How do I know hypnotism for weight loss works?
Hypnosis is a scientifically accredited method of helping people overcome all kinds of difficulties. For example, in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology (Vol.64, No.3) in 1996 a study showed that the average weight loss without hypnosis was 6.03 pounds. With hypnosis average weight loss came in at 14.88 pounds. So, with hypnosis you can double your weight loss with no extra effort.
And, because hypnosis modifies your behavior at the source then you stand a far greater chance of keeping the weight off rather than putting it on again. A study that appeared in the Journal of Clinical Psychology (41) 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.
