How Does Hypnosis Help You Lose Weight?
The simple answer for the question is we humans are slaves to habit. Hypnosis is an excellent tool for eliminating bad habits and creating good habits.
Before you begin any weight loss program, it is very important that possible medical reasons for excess weight be diagnosed. Get a clean bill of health from your doctor. This usually comes as an "eat right and exercise more" statement. We sometimes find ourselves living to eat rather than eating to live. In our modern society we have learned to eat for reasons other than hunger.
Most of our eating habits are unconscious and do not involve actual hunger. We eat because we are emotional, bored, tired, happy, unhappy, guilty, afraid, sad, and many other reasons that do not involve hunger. Hypnosis works for weight loss because it re-programs your unconscious need to eat when not actually hungry. By eating nutritious food, in the right proportions, only when hungry, your body will automatically begin to return to a more ideal weight. Hypnosis is a tool for change at the sub-conscious level where our habits are formed.
Habits, both good and bad, become unconscious, or automatic. Have you ever driven your car and arrived at a destination realizing you were on "auto pilot" the whole time? Without conscious thinking you stopped for red lights, stop signs, made turns, and got where you were going. Driving became an unconscious task and hopefully, all your good driving habits got you to your destination safely.
The example of being on autopilot also applies to our good and bad eating habits. That bag of chips, pint of ice cream, or candy bar etc. can disappear almost without our knowledge. Many people who struggle with weight often find that their eating habits have become unconscious. For driving our car, the unconscious keeps us safe. For food, our habits may drive us to eat when hunger is not a factor.
Hypnosis is a very natural, pleasant state of mind that often occurs twice a day for most people. It is a dreamy far away feeling that we sometimes experience just before drifting off to sleep at night, or just before being fully awake in the morning. Another example of how you feel in hypnosis would be gazing into a fireplace or campfire, you are aware of everything around you but you just drift enjoying the relaxed feeling. In Hypnosis you will be aware at all times but the awareness is in the background.
The hypnotic state for weight loss opens the subconscious seat of our habits to suggestions by a skilled hypnotic guide. These suggestions reinforce our good habits and replace our bad habits.
Hypnosis provides powerful subconscious suggestions for eating healthy nutritious foods and snacks. The first time you reach for that bag of cookies and your hand stops in mid air you will realize that you are now in control. It is a powerful testament to the power of your mind.
Hypnosis is a powerful tool for following the Doctor's advice to eat right and exercise.
