Finding that managing your weight and the food you eat has become a losing battle? Most of us find that our weight goes up and down at times. There are many reasons for this but addiction to sugar, comfort eating and eating through boredom are probably the most common. You might have tried going to the gym or following a diet but the reality is that the only way you will lose weight and keep it off is to change your relationship with food.
Diets Don't Work!
When you think about the word diet, what does it mean to you? There’s a good chance that it means either punishing yourself by depriving yourself of food you enjoy, or it means a short period of restricting what you eat until you reach your goal….or both!
These are the two things that most people think about when they think about going on a diet, and the main reasons why people tend to yo-yo with their weight.
If you punish yourself by depriving yourself of things you enjoy eating, or replace them with shakes, powders etc. then you probably won’t last very long and you most likely won’t achieve your goal.
But if and when you do reach your goal, what happens then? Most people go back to the way they were eating before, and before they know it the weight they worked so hard to lose will pile back on, leaving them with feelings of failure and guilt.
Why Hypnotherapy Works For Weight Loss
Without doubt the best and most lasting way to lose weight is not to go on a diet, but to make permanent changes to your lifestyle. Hypnotherapy works with your subconscious mind to make positive changes to the way you think and feel about food by:
- helping you stop snacking through boredom
- utilising your motivations
- helping your subconscious mind understand the need for a healthy diet
- remove your need for comfort eating
- remove your negative body images
- improve your self-esteem
- changing your relationship with food
Because these changes are made at a subconscious level you don’t need to go through the pain of a diet and the changes will be much longer lasting!
