There’s no denying it – trying to lose weight can be a long and challenging journey. If you’ve ever tried and failed to lose weight before then you probably know just how frustrating it can be – especially when feelings like stress, low self-esteem and boredom crop up. That’s where hypnotherapy for weight loss can help you. Hypnotherapy for weight loss at my London practice uses expert, evidence based techniques so that weight loss is long lasting.
It’s not unusual for people to get into a cycle of dieting, overeating, feeling guilty and dieting again. This is known as ‘yo-yo dieting’ and makes weight loss difficult to sustain.
While diets and nutrition plans focus on what you eat and how often, hypnotherapy for weight loss changes how you feel about what you eat. For example – on a diet plan you might eat a carrot and wish you were eating a carrot cake, but with hypnotherapy for weight loss at my London practice you can learn to enjoy the carrot and not give that cake a second thought. It might be hard to imagine a world where you’d happily turn down your favourite food for something healthier, but with certain hypnotherapy for weight loss techniques it may be possible to change your thinking patterns in a big way and gain control over cravings in a way that doesn’t depress you.
By targeting the unconscious mind with powerful suggestion techniques, I work to help you develop a positive relationship with food and exercise. The aim of my London hypnotherapy for weight loss programme is to make you feel confident about your body, change any negative thoughts about eating and help you lose weight responsibly without impacting your emotional well-being.
Do I have to get more fit and spend hours in the gym?
Many clients on my hypnotherapy for weight loss programmes demand they have to get thinner, regardless of whether they’re overweight or not. Truly, not very many individuals are content with the shape and size of their bodies, paying little mind to regardless of whether they have to get in shape. Hypnotherapy for weight loss is about your relationship with food. Exercise is important but its about enjoying what you do and about seeing your body as something wonderful, not as a means to feeling better about yourself. So, no, you don’t have to go to the gym necessarily – its your weight loss plan and we will organise your plan in line with what works for you.
Insights from Public Health England say that almost 66% of grown-ups in England need to shed pounds since they’re overweight or eat too much. You may benefit from hypnotherapy for weight loss if you:
• have a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or more
• are a man with a waist circumference that exceeds 37 inches
• are a woman with a waist circumference that exceeds 32 inches
• have a high body fat percentage for your age and sex
• have pain in your joints (excess weight puts greater stress on joints)
• have type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease.
Working out your BMI
1. Firstly, find your weight in kilograms and your height in metres – e.g. weight = 50 kg height = 1.8
2. Multiply your height by itself – e.g. 1.8 x 1.8 = 3.24
3. Divide your weight by that figure – e.g. 50 ÷ 3.24 = 15.4
4. 15.4 is a BMI that is below the healthy body weight range.
If you do not have access to a set of scales at home then why not just visit your GP or practice nurse, both of whom will measure your height, find out your weight and tell you your BMI.
Even when you are on a hypnotherapy for weight loss programme, it is important to eat a balanced, healthy diet and exercise more. Below are some of the tale tale signs that you maybe overeating:
• You eat fast and do not really taste the flavours in your food or notice your body signalling that your tummy is full.
• You always eat everything on your plate, and that’s even when you feel full up. This might also be because you don’t like to waste food, a
common belief many of us grow up with.
• You eat when you feel down, bored or lonely.
• You eat when you are upset or miserable.
• You eat to reward yourself (i.e. I’ve done so well at work today, I truly deserve this cake right now).
It’s unhealthy to be overweight or obese because you have a higher risk of developing/suffering from:
• type 2 diabetes
• high blood pressure
• high cholesterol
• heart disease
• heart attack
Being heavier than normal can likewise have social repercussions, including feeling ignored or less valuable than others. On your hypnotherapy for weight loss programme we will address these issues, if relevant. Feeling over weight can make people feel bad about themselves, sometimes leading to :
• low self-esteem
• low self-confidence
These feelings can genuinely decrease a person’s personal satisfaction in life and even have a domino impact on their professions, connections and ordinary encounters. Hypnotherapy for weight loss is not just about eating less, during hypnotherapy for weight loss, we look at thoughts and feelings like these as well. It is sometimes true that many individuals look for hypnotherapy for weight loss to lose weight – since together we look at the hidden reasons for unfortunate dietary patterns which might add to weight gain.
Body Image and weight loss and gain
While it is imperative for someone who is overweight to act quickly and consider a hypnotherapy for weight loss programme, it’s bad to feel down or discouraged about it. You will be okay and in fact you are lovable as you are already! Since body shape and size is so tied in with the western thought of what is attractive and beautiful, individuals are continually searching for ‘fast fixes’ to compromise and ‘fix’ problems which are often about self esteem and not what the scales say. Forget consuming calories pills, craze weight reduction diets and overwhelming fitness and activity regimes and plans, hypnotherapy for weight loss is a more sensible and natural way to simply look after you, both body and mind. What you need to ask yourself is – am I upbeat doing this? If a diet makes you feel restricted leaves you feeling down, then ditch it today. If its not a long term solution, forget it working long term. Hypnotherapy for weight loss is about success long term.
