Hypnosis To Help Control Your
Hypnosis And Your Eating Habits You know about the
connection between food and weight. You understand that you
make choices everyday concerning what you put into your mouth
and how not only what you put in there but how much, determines
how much weight you lose or gain.
Did you know that you could use hypnosis to talk yourself
into making healthy eating choices? When you count how many
times you make choices about snacks and meals that you eat
between say the age of 8 (when your mom starts letting you make
choices) to say 90 when perhaps someone in a nursing home may
be making those choices for you; that's approximately 145,960+
choices about what to put into your mouth.
No pressure there, right? Our parents, school staff, perhaps
a nutritionist, nurse or doctor may try to teach us how to make
good choices. No matter how many try to teach us or how many
times we hear about the food pyramid or about counting
calories; it comes down to a matter of how we personally think
or feel about food.
Hypnosis allows you to direct one thought to your
subconscious mind (the area of your brain where your belief
systems are located). It is so much easier to convince yourself
to not eat that piece of candy if your conscious and
subconscious are on the "same page" when it comes to the
decisions you face, such as what food to eat and how much to
eat at one sitting.
Hypnosis can help your override how your subconscious views
(pre-programmed for) certain topics. Changing how your
subconscious view a topic is how hypnosis is used to relax
someone, or help them to overcome a certain phobia, fear,
stress, or anxiety.
The ability to overcome these conditions can help alleviate
health issues that these conditions can contribute to in the
same way that alleviating the stress concerning each meal or
snack decision can help free you to see each meal as a separate
decision instead of lumping all meals and snacks together.
An example is that most people are under a lot of pressure
when it comes to weight loss and eating. They look at each meal
as a time of intense stress to adhere to diet plans or caloric

Hypnosis And Meditation
Thinking versus not thinking
But there is a major reversal when it comes to thinking in relation to meditation and hypnosis. With hypnosis you strive to still think unlike meditation where you try to clear the mind and not think.
A great beginning point
For this reason hypnosis is a great precursor to meditation. Why? Because as one enters hypnosis and reaches the subconscious mind old programmed thought patterns can be released thus freeing up and clearing the mind for a deep a quiet level or state of meditation.
If you mess up at one meal or snack time, you put that much
more pressure on yourself to do better at the next meal or
snack time. The pressure increases until you become a bundle of
fear and anxiety over what you eat at every mealtime or snack
time. There are many who swear that you can use hypnosis as a
way to change how you feel or think about food.
Hypnosis can help you by helping you to lose your taste for
fattening foods, allow you to feel full as soon as you
start eating, help you to lose your appetite for fats, and
also have you craving healthy types of food. Hypnosis can
also help to speed up your metabolism by increasing your
desire for water and helping to decrease your desire for

discover any difficult, or problem areas,

Even solve problems with stretching
better, or having more endurance and
strength to say in a pose longer.
The results of changing how you relate to fats, feeling
full, healthy foods, water and salt is that you then have
the ability to lose weight. Combine how you feel about food
intake with using hypnosis to create a craving for exercise
and you have a winning combination to losing and
maintaining proper weight.
