Self Hypnosis to Lose Weight
How can you lose weight and keep it off for good? Depending on what you do, it can either be very easy and smooth, or it could turn out to be the most frustrating thing in your life.
For starters, the healthiest way to shed fat is not the fastest way to lose weight. Most commercial, trendy weight loss plans push for crash diets and drastic exercises, which most times are abrupt.
Most doctors do not recommend such an approach to weight loss and in any case, they consider them harmful to your health.
Many people who have tried these fad diets think that weight loss is just one big lie. You shed some weight, and then regain it within no time, and each time you’re left feeling more miserable than when you were just starting out.
One funny thing is that many people look back at their weight loss history and realize that they’ve actually put on more weight over time. What a contradiction!
You will be surprised to learn that people who have a healthy weight and are comfortable with it don’t even try. They just have a certain way of doing things. Achieving success is not that hard if you master the formula for success. Success is all about ‘habits’.
The reason why hypnosis is guaranteed to help you succeed in losing weight is because it helps you adopt new habits and stick to them. If you want easy, natural weight loss, then hypnosis is what will do it for you.
What is hypnosis?
Simply put, hypnosis is a level of mind. It is the frequency at which the brain works; the higher the frequency, the faster your brain works, and vice versa. Hypnosis alters the state of consciousness, like being in a daze.
All hypnosis is self hypnosis, although it is often done with a hypnotherapist using mental images and repeated words. A person under hypnosis has highly focused attention and can easily respond to suggestions, such as behavior changes, which can help in weight loss. To practice hypnosis on your own, you need to learn the right hypnosis techniques.
Weight loss with hypnosis
Weight loss hypnosis has been used for some time now, with many claims of success. A number of studies have been carried out to establish the effectiveness of weight loss hypnosis. Many of those studies have indicated some weight loss, albeit a small one, averaging about 6 pounds. However, the exact effectiveness of hypnosis is hard to establish because the there have been many questions raised on the quality of such studies.
Hypnosis in weight loss is used to improve awareness of your new choices and the thoughts which come before those choices, and then learn how to respond to them positively. The thing is to practice over mental images or sounds repetitively until your response become second nature. Hypnosis particularly helps you to go beyond your conscious limited thinking and the automatic responses to situations which lead you to repeat patterns that are detrimental to your health.
While hypnosis may contribute to weight loss, it certainly should be used alongside the basics – healthy diet and consistent exercise. If you've tried other weight loss methods without success, you might want to try self hypnosis to lose weight. It's harmless, and you never know - it just might work!
