Hypnosis for Weight Loss has everything to do with your state of mind

If you ever find yourself eating because of any of the following reasons: boredom, anxiety, depression, reward, stress, time of day, other people… then hypnotherapy can help you. Some people do not eat out of hunger or to fuel their bodies. They engage in what is called Emotional Eating.

Many people turn to food for comfort — consciously or unconsciously — when they’re facing a difficult problem, feeling emotionally unfulfilled, or looking to keep themselves occupied. Sometimes when you are feeling emotionally weak, you will find that your longing for food increases.

The good news is that if you are prone to emotional eating, hypnotherapy will help you regain control of your eating habits and create a healthier lifestyle.

Hypnosis is a safe and natural weight loss method. In fact, hypnosis is the only method that helps you reach a healthy weight without having to use will power. It has everything to do with the state of mind. Once you re-educate your subconscious mind, you never have trouble again.

With hypnosis you re-educate how you think about food and change your attitude toward food.

After resolving the core issues and emotional reasons for weight gain, suggestion therapy is used to encourage healthy eating and exercising. These positive affirmations are designed to bypass the conscious reasoning mind.

Through the hypnosis sessions, you will create new beliefs, values and thinking patterns that will help you achieve and permanently maintain a healthy weight (or achieve another specific goal).

Hypnotherapy will make it easier to follow a healthy lifestyle. Hypnotherapy encourages you to embrace a mindset that will support you across all areas of life. For this reason, most hypnosis sessions for weight loss also build confidence and self-esteem.

“How Can Hypnotherapy Help Someone Lose Weight?”

“Many people who want to lose weight have already made multiple attempts to make changes in diet and exercise habits before trying hypnotherapy.3 This can lead to feelings of discouragement and even hopelessness.

“Hypnotherapy increases a person’s chance of success by addressing issues surrounding self esteem and body image, as well as resolving conflicts between conscious and subconscious motivations…”  [To continue reading this article CLICK HERE]

Hypnotherapy in weight loss treatment
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology

Investigated the effects of hypnosis in weight loss for 60 females, at least 20% overweight. Treatment included group hypnosis with metaphors for ego-strengthening, decision making and motivation, ideomotor exploration in individual hypnosis, and group hypnosis with maintenance suggestions.

Hypnosis was more effective than a control group: an average of 17 lbs lost by the hypnosis group vs. an average of 0.5 lbs lost by the control group, on follow-up.

Effectiveness of hypnosis as an adjunct to behavioral weight management
Journal of Clinical Psychology

109 seventeen to sixty-seven year olds completed a behavioral treatment for weight management either with or without the addition of hypnosis. Results show that, at the end of the 9-wk program, both interventions resulted in significant weight reduction.

However, at 8-month and 2-year follow-ups, the hypnosis sample size showed significant additional weight loss, while those in the behavioral-treatment-only group exhibited little further change. More sample size who used hypnosis also achieved and maintained their personal weight goals.

It is suggested that hypnosis may have been an effective motivator for sample size to continue practicing the more adaptive eating behaviors acquired during treatment. Findings support the utility of employing hypnosis as an adjunct to a behavioral weight management program.

Hypnotic enhancement of cognitive-behavioral weight loss treatments–another meta-reanalysis
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology

In a 3rd meta-analysis of the effect of adding hypnosis to cognitive-behavioral treatments for weight reduction, additional data were obtained from authors of 2 studies, and computational inaccuracies in both previous meta-analyses were corrected. Averaged across post-treatment and follow-up assessment periods, the mean weight loss was 6.00 lbs. without hypnosis and 11.83 lbs. with hypnosis.

At the last assessment period, the mean weight loss was 6.03 lbs. without hypnosis and 14.88 lbs. with hypnosis.

Correlational analyses indicated that the benefits of hypnosis increased substantially over time.

Weight Loss for Women: Studies of Smokers and Nonsmokers Using Hypnosis and Multicomponent Treatments With and Without Overt Aversion
Psychology Reprints

Study 1 compared overweight adult women smokers and nonsmokers in an hypnosis-based, weight-loss program. Smokers and nonsmokers achieved significant weight losses and decreases in body mass index.

Study 2 treated 100 women either in an hypnosis only or an overt aversion and hypnosis program. This multi-component follow-up study replicated significant weight losses and declines in Body Mass Index.

The hypnosis only and hypnosis with overt aversion programs yielded significantly lower post-treatment weights and a greater average number of pounds lost.

Controlled Trial of Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss in Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea
International Journal of Obesity and Related Metabolic Disorders

Randomized, controlled, parallel study of two forms of hypnotherapy 1.) directed at stress reduction, or 2.) directed at energy intake reduction, vs 3.) dietary advice alone in 60 obese patients with obstructive sleep apnea on nasal continuous positive airway pressure treatment.

18 months only the hypnotherapy group (with stress reduction) still showed a significant mean weight loss compared to baseline.

Analyzed over the whole time period the hypnotherapy group with stress reduction achieved significantly more weight loss than the other two treatment arms.

Conclusions: This controlled trial in producing weight loss using either dietary advice or hypnotherapy has produced a statistically significant result in favor of hypnotherapy.

10 Ways Hypnosis Can Help You Lose Weight—For Good
Oprah Magazine

Most people, including my colleagues at Harvard Medical School, where I teach hypnosis, don’t realize that adding trance to your weight loss efforts can help you lose more weight and keep it off longer.

Hypnosis predates carb and calorie counting by a few centuries, but this age-old attention-focusing technique has yet to be embraced wholeheartedly as an effective weight loss strategy.

Even after a persuasive mid-nineties reanalysis of 18 hypnotic studies showed that psychotherapy clients who learned self-hypnosis lost twice as much weight as those who didn’t (and, in one study, kept it off two years after treatment ended), hypnotherapy has remained a well-kept weight loss secret.

Imagine hypnosis actually helping you lose weight—because the news is: It does.

Genuine change requires genuine desire!

Your subconscious mind has many beliefs about losing weight. You might automatically think: Losing weight is impossible, that you don’t want to give up your favorite foods, or that you don’t have time for exercise.

These unconscious thoughts – which are shaped by memories, experiences and expectations – ultimately drive our conscious actions, and we don’t even realize this is happening.

In short, our subconscious sets us up to fail. And that’s true about many of our bad habits – negative self-talk, smoking, overeating – they’re all deeply rooted in unconscious thought.

Through hypnotherapy we can begin to alter and update these negative assumptions.

Hypnotherapy is not magic. It requires that you are a willing participant in the process.

You need to be motivated and willing to change for best results.

Most studies that have demonstrated a positive effect of hypnosis on weight loss have used it in combination with a weight management program. This research showed that hypnosis was able to enhance weight loss when paired with dietary advice or behavioral treatment.

I do not recommend a particular approach to eating, weight loss or exercise, but I do help you discover the approach that works best for you and remove any limiting subconscious blocks you may have towards achieving your health goals.

Hypnotherapy helps to anchor new beliefs about one’s own ability to make positive changes to regain health, vigor and ideal weight, as well as to live a happy and successful life. Without a strong and positive self-esteem it can be difficult to actively engage with life.
