 How to Lose Weight With Hypnosis

Gaining Weight and How to Reverse Obesity

We keep hearing that we have an have an “obesity epidemic” in the UK. Some of this, as in the USA, is because of ready meals and junk food. In fact the American Health Authority calls it “junkie food” because they say that people become addicted to fat sugar and salt in high levels in the food which makes them feel good for all of half an hour!

Unfortunately this has a bad impact on the waistline. It can also lead to depression, cancer, osteoarthritis, type 2 diabetes, heart trouble and more! Your knees and back don’t thank you either because for every stone overweight it is as if you were wearing a rucksack filled with fat. You try carrying a rucksack wearing a rucksack weighing even one stone and you will see what I mean!

Losing weight with dieting

The problem is that the diet industry has always known that when you stop the diet you go back to your “normal eating” – and when you do the weight piles on again!

So we get the boom and bust of yoyo dieting.

Quite honestly dieting is boring!

Diets tend to be starvation or exclusion diets

Starvation Diets

You are asked to cut down on calories or maybe you are allowed sins (I find calling food sinful a psychological no no!) or you eat shakes or ready meals.

Some diet ready made foods contain ground duck feathers to bulk you out or a substance like wallpaper paste that mimics fat.

You may find that if they are low in fat or salt they are high in sugar or vice versa.

Starvation puts pressure on the liver and kidneys and your autonomic system makes you crave to eat more.

You might have strong short term goals – such as a wedding – and you override the siren call of your hypothalamus – the governor of your appetite.

You drink diet drinks which might contain aspartame which studies show makes you hungrier and actually may cause cancer.

You get bored with the shakes or ready meals.

You do the High Fibre Diet and get good at sprinting ..

You crash diet to beat the weigh in.

The moment you weaken you binge and put the weight back on.

Exclusion diets

Don’t eat fish on a wet Tuesday! Eat lots of fat. Cut out carbs. Take as much fat as possible out of your diet. Fast on designated days etc etc.

A nutritionist friend told me how harmful these diets can be as your poor digestive system liver and kidneys suddenly take on a huge load of one particular type of food and suddenly lacks another food group.

I suggested that I should bring in a Pineapple Diet – where you substitute fresh pineapple for one meal a day. I would talk of it’s miraculous digestive powers. I would say it was high in Bromelane a digestive enzyme. I would say it was full of fibre and bulked you out. I would tell you to watch your calories in other meals.

You might do it and lose weight … until you got bored with Pineapple and it would go the way of the Grapefruit Diet!

Perhaps I would sell it to you in pill form extolling the virtues of some obscure chemical and it’s ability to break down fat.

If all this worked wouldn’t the NHS prescribe it?

Dieting Problems

The problem is that we become calorie obsessed: “I lost / gained a pound today!” It is rumoured that some weight loss counsellors get bonuses for every pound lost – hence the obsession with pounds.

Frankly you can gain or lose a pound depending on what time of the day that you weigh. A pound is nothing. The overall aim is to lose weight steadily – and there will be peaks and troughs depending where you are in getting rid of fat – for instance.

If you are in a time where weight stands still or even goes up a little you get depressed and abandon the diet – it is “not working” – so you may as well comfort yourself with food.

Or maybe you feel it is all your fault?

Actually: You are fighting your body’s natural equilibrium.

Weight Management with Hypnosis

My approach is to help you manage your weight without calorie counting or any other gimmick. You learn how to use portion size control and eat a balance of food stuffs that meet your body’s needs.

We can also look at some foods that actually might be making you ill or lacking energy.

We can examine whether a low carb diet is the way forward or actually whether it depends on what carbs you eat .. Is there any foundation to the Paleo Diet?

Are Raspberry Ketone Pills a waste of money?

Is Dukane Diet all it is cracked up to be or is it more simply a matter of a balanced diet managed well?

Learn how to listen to your body and realise when you are full and stop eating?

You take some exercise which you enjoy

Most importantly you address why you overeat and stop tranquillising yourself with food!

Why you overeat:

Stress

“The boss / customer yelled at me so I reached for my secret Chocolate Drawer!”

We tranquillise ourselves with sweets or food and binge or comfort eat.

We could however use a strategy to address the stress and also lessen the possibilities of being yelled at by someone: prioritising is one great strategy instead of eating.

The problem is that you stress eat and it makes you “feel good” for about 15 minutes and then the stress still hasn’t gone.

A little stress is a good thing – a lot can prove fatal! It is now one of the biggest killers.

Anxiety

“I get anxious and eating a snack makes me feel better.”

I had a client that I regressed to find out if she unconsciously understood her addiction to jelly babies. She recalled a long repressed memory of being eight years old and her Mother sitting her in a sunny garden and saying: “Never mind darling – when you have a problem eat a jelly baby and all will be well.”

Her 25 stone self thanked her Mother for that well intentioned dietary nightmare but realised that she didn’t have to address her anxieties that way.

I taught her how to diminish the anxiety and address the source of the anxiety.

Boredom

“I get bored in the evening and watch TV and reward myself after a hard day with beer and snacks.”

This is a huge danger area for some people and eating late means you never really get to digest properly so the body deposits it as fat to digest later. Of course you never get to digest it later.

Boredom is a craving for company or mental stimulus – so we need to find a strategy for that … one client started making bespoke cards .. another loved reading and joined a book club and made friends … another rediscovered Art … another took up running again and is now doing half marathons .. another wrote her village history.

We also need to suggest gently that eating or drinking too much alcohol is not the best default.

Depression or PTSD or Trauma:

“I find that bad thoughts can be addressed with eating or drinking.”

Actually the fix is only temporary and overeating or drinking too much alcohol can lead to you spiralling out of control. Your self image is perceived as bad which makes you more depressed.

If the Comfort or Binge Eating is related to past trauma – perhaps it is time to stop letting that event or events affect you. The event, abuse or PTSD, continues to affect you. A properly qualified Hypnotherapist with training in Psychological Abuse Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder CAN help you move forward and stop self medicating with food or alcohol.

You cannot change what happened but you can alter how you feel about it and put it behind you.

There are many reasons for weight issues

I work with you using my many years of experience to find solutions to overeating or drinking too much alcohol. We work in a holistic way through the issues – so whether it is PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Boredom or anything else that causes you to tranquillise yourself with food we will find a strategy, explore nutritional alternatives, have some fun along the way, motivate you to lose weight and much more …

How to move beyond Anxiety Stress Depression and Panic Attacks

I am seeing an awful lot of people at my clinics in Suffolk and Essex recently for Anxiety, Work Related Stress, Depression and Panic Attacks.

I suppose with the Financial Climate and the pressures on people this is unsurprising!

On it’s own Stress is now one of the big three killers in the World – and in the US workers, who have ended up with severs health issues because of stress, have even ended up suing the Companies that don’t practice Stress Management!

Many people don’t realise that there is an alternative approach for Depression Anxiety and Panic Attacks. Medication helps – but the question is whether you want that sort of support long term? My years of experience of working with Clients with Hypnotherapy and NLP have helped me evolve an approach that seems to work for most sufferers.

Stress, Anxiety and Panic Attacks are all based in the Fight or Flight response – this was useful when you faced a Sabre Tooth Tiger – but less usually useful these days! We probably don’t want to fight or run away from Nigel from Accounts because of an overspend! (Or maybe we do!)

We hate the feeling of adrenaline, the sweaty palms and raised heartbeat and we try to quell it – the unconscious part of you concerned with this thinks you haven’t noticed that help it just gave you – and dumps some more adrenaline into the bloodstream .. and you could soon be hyperventilating.

Simply put: you are headed in the wrong direction! I teach clients how to get the situation under control by a combination of proven techniques and strategies.

People who are depressed get into the mindset of: the light at the end of the tunnel is definitely a train coming in the opposite direction! We explore a number of different tried and tested approaches to help you get past depression.

You CAN get control of Depression Stress, Anxiety and Panic – talk to me for FREE to see how.

Hypnotherapy takes work with your therapist – so results can vary – it is not a substitute for Medical advice but complementary to it.
