Self Help And Losing Weight
Self Help And Losing Weight With Hypnotism. Using hypnotism
to achieve weight loss might be the best way to accomplish this
often huge undertaking.
So many people start a diet which is based on a major
cutback or change in their regular diet and habits of eating
with the thought that they will resume eating as they always
have as soon as they reach the desired weight again.
What will this end up causing? Lets take a closer look and
explore how hypnotism might help improve results. Are you a
person who diets and then just cant wait until you can stop
Do you celebrate somehow your achievement with something
tasty? Do you often gain that weight back? Consider the
possibility that you have a cycle here and the trend is toward
recovering those pounds you just starved yourself to lose.
Many people complain about this trend and it is otherwise
known as the yo yo effect. If you happen to look at things in a
simple way with weight loss, like I'll just do this diet until
I lose this amount then I can eat normal again....well then
your dieting will end in failure and be a long term loss with
and a short term gain.
Why? Because youre dieting without changing how you eat and
knowing how your eating affects your weight. Losing weight
depends on several things and they are as an example:
- Exercise activity
- The quality of the food you eat
- Your emotional state
- Your mood
- Your Habits
- The knowledge you have about nutrition and
- Any food sensitivities you might have
- The way you grew up with food and family practices
Now these factors are important because if you dont change
old ingrained programming that is causing you to do things that
dont contribute to losing weight or to maintaining an optimal
weight then you most likely will have a very limited amount of
long term success with your weight.
You will either not lose the as much weight as you want to
and or you might be limited on the amount of time you maintain
your desired weight level. However, if you take into account
the above factors and take measures to correct what is
necessary for long term and successful weight loss then you can
more easily obtain successful long term weight loss.
But how does hypnotism help? Can hypnotism help you with
your weight loss? Well, with the subconscious having so much a
part to play in our day to day life, if you alter your thoughts
about exercise and eating that affect weight with hypnotism
then it is very possible to achieve weight loss success for the
You have to use hypnotism as a tool to develop better eating
habits and exercise routines. By using hypnotherapy and or
self-hypnosis along with other weight loss routines you can
achieve good results.

Hypnosis Can Help Children
According to a study by the department of psychology at Standford University hypnosis can help children if they need a medical procedure.
The parents in the study reported that the children where more content and seemed to be less traumatised after the treatment than before.
What was ever more astonishing with the study was that the medical staff reported that the procedures were on average 14 minutes shorter for the hypnotised group than for the control group and also that the procedure was easier to perform on the children that had self hypnotised.
The conclusion of the study was that Hypnotic relaxation may be beneficial for children who undergo invasive medical procedures and make such programs easier for the parents to accept because they can control the distress caused.
If it is done right... Hypnosis helps with weight loss because
affects it the ingrained habits and upbringing; whereas dieting
programs can not. Long term success isnt really even dependant
on exercise programs that include dieting to lose weight. Long
term achievement of your weight goals is dependent on altering
the bad habits and programming that interfere with your
You dont even have to necessarily change what you eat. You
can be hypnotized into feeling more satisfied with smaller
quantities of food at a time. And a side benefit is you
might start choosing foods that are best for you instead of
what tastes best or is most convenient.
Hypnosis or meditation are good ways to
help yourself relax and let go of things
that cause you stress or anxiety.
This in turn can help you if you comfort
eat, or if you can't sleep due to
That being said, if there is a medical reason for weight
loss and not simply overeating, then medical help might be
needed. But if you change your habits, thoughts, and
attitudes you will change your life in possibly some big
ways with the help of hypnotism.
