I understand why people go on diets. Dieting is the main way in which people balance their nutrition but not necessarily the most effective way.
When you go on a diet to lose weight you starve your body and when you deprive your body of nutrients, when you you decrease the number of calories your body is used to, your body thinks you are doing something that is unnatural, so it triggers its emergency mode. This changes your psychology towards food completely and it’s actually counterproductive.
Dieting can only be successful temporarily because the body will never let you be in a state of malnutrition. The mind and body work together and will do everything necessary to actually make you get that food back, in other words it will make you more hungry, it will make you more irritable and when you do get the opportunity to eat you will probably eat more than you would have done otherwise.
There is this fallacy, this misunderstanding, this myth perpetuated by the dieting industries that diets are all about balance and that achieving balance is easy . “If you want to lose weight there are a few simple things you need to do” even though in effect they’re not that simple to achieve.
Commercial dieting systems:
Commercial dieting systems like Weight Watchers etc. work,in fact they’re a very good starting point for most people if you’ve never been able to diet on your own because these diets create
- a social environment
- they create a set of rules or a structured way of looking at nutrition
- they look at goal setting.
The reasons these systems tend to fail long-term is that they never handle the one area of weight control which eludes most people and that is comfort eating.
When it comes to snacking and grazing between meals we are all programmed from a very early age to see certain foods with a sense of reward, we tend to eat those foods because it makes us fill a void. For most people this occur when they are bored or when they’re feeling emotionally challenged.
Just think of what we do with a baby, we give the baby a dummy (pacifier) to pacify them. But as adults, we tend to self sooth with food.
These commercial systems are very good at talking about eat less – move more, but they are not so good at telling people how not to think about food emotionally. These “snacking” thoughts are constantly present.
When you tell yourself not to do something the brain doesn’t respond in the way you think, it will want it even more. Willpower is the main factor behind most people’s attempts to to deal with food thoughts but willpower alone never succeeds long-term.
There are three main things that the hypnotherapy process can achieve:
The first and most important one is this ability to is this ability to switch off your snacking / grazing thoughts through a number of very structured and specific techniques and exercises. You will find that you are able to look at a comfort food and feel nothing at all, I mean literally nothing at all and that causes the behavior to change.
With hypnotherapy people are taught to switch off the reward center of the brain regarding food.
There’s no magic bullet or Holy Grail when it comes to to losing weight, but controlling your thoughts around the wrong foods is a good starting point. It is also one that can be sustained once it’s changed. One simply outgrow certain connections that we we’ve developed through out our lives.
What i I asked whether you believe in Santa Clause? If you’re an adult (chances are) you don’t believe in Santa, but if you were a child…Those emotions inside you towards thinking about father Christmas are very very different from you thinking about father Christmas as an adult.
The same thing can happen with food, you can think you’re very differently about food. What is important is OUTGROWING the food rather than QUITTING or DENYING the food. It is about learning that you can RELEASE rather than RESIST those thoughts.
The second element to the the gastric band hypnosis system is in its name. The idea behind the gastric band is that a lot of people tend to overeat, they tend to have these feasts. Their plates tend to be piled high with a lot of food, we eat big portions. Through hypnotherapy you learn to become more mindful of each and every mouthful. Think what happens when you have a gastric band inserted as the proper operation, you squeeze the stomach, the stomach becomes smaller, therefore it makes sense for it to fill quicker.
If you’re open to the hypnotic process you will feel that fullness, you can actually experience that fullness and much much quicker than before. So with this particular system you are taught through a number of very structured and specific rules how to recognize that feeling of satiety.
When you do recognize that feeling you stop eating, combine that with the fact that you’re not snacking in between meals and the fact that you’re cutting down the volume of food – you’re beginning to achieve the same things you would have achieved with a typical diet but you’re not feeling like you are suffering. You’re not feeling like you’re constantly thinking about food because food has now become the fuel for your body and not to be all and end all.
Why hypnosis works is because your whole philosophy changed, your relationship with food changed and you start to eat less, you’re not snacking and grazing, you are doing what the body needs to do to stay in balance.
All of these changes would be pointless unless you could sustain them and with hypnosis you can. People lose weight with the gastric band hypnosis system because it doesn’t require thought, it doesn’t require constant conscious thought.
Hypnosis is about making healthy changes but for it to feel effortless and for it to feel like you are not relying on your willpower. That is why it works.
It works because once you’ve tapped into the subconscious you can sustain change, it takes about 21 to 28 days for any human being to change any habit long term and this is one of the ways you can do it.
The third factor is that hypnosis for weight loss also deals with goal setting and setting goals that are realistic goals that are achievable. You feel like you have achieved and this allows for long term change.
It’s not like a 28-day program and then you just revert back to your old ways of eating. It’s about sustaining the change and making sure that you can go on to set new goals. So you stay in a state of setting goals and achieving them.
Chances are you’ve been disappointed in the past by what diets promised you but didn’t give you. What you wanted is to be in control of your weight and not vice versa.
You can start to adopt a new philosophy, it can change your entire attitude, it can change your entire life.
You will be in a better position to to achieve the things that you want.
If you do what you’ve always done you’re simply going to get what you’ve always got – so this is if you like a “thinking outside the box” system.
Do it at night, from home. It is easy, affordable and very effective!
Here is the program I recommend:
