Weight Loss and hypnotherapy
Nearly everyone who comes to me has tried dieting for weight loss. And it hasn’t worked.
Yes, you lose weight, but about 95% of people who lose weight by dieting will regain it in one to five years.
Why? Dieting, by definition, is a temporary food plan.
It won't work in the long run. Starving your body can lead to a diet-overeat or diet-binge cycle.
And since your body doesn't want you to starve, it responds to overly-restrictive diets by slowing your metabolism, which of course makes it harder to lose weight.
What I look at is mind-set.
The wrong mind-set and weight gain are inextricably linked.
But turn that idea on its head and the right mind-set can help you lose weight.
Overeating is wrapped up in:
Self-confidence and self-worth
getting rid of anxiety eating
changing eating patterns
possible PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Together we can straighten things out and use your thought feeling and behaviours to create new patterns and habits to get to your weight loss goal.
This is where hypnotherapy comes in. To help you have a new relationship with food.
Note I still not using the word ‘diet’. It’s not helpful. We’re looking to create a lifetime of good habits, not a crashing down of weight that we all know in our heart of hearts is not sustainable.
