When people think about weight control, they think about seeking the advice of doctors, nutritionists, and personal trainers. However, did you know that hypnotists can also help with controlling weight gain? In this month’s blog, we will discuss how hypnosis can actually help with weight control and ultimately lead to a healthier lifestyle.
Reasons Behind Weight Gain
There are many variables behind weight gain but a common reason is due to overeating. When a person overeats, it may be because they feel like its fulfilling a necessary need whether it be for entertainment, boredom, or to reward themselves. For example, after committing to a strict diet plan or workout schedule and ultimately losing their desired weight, an individual may feel the need to reward them self by eating unhealthy foods. In most cases, people accidentally eat too excessively after forbidding themselves from fattening foods, which results in gaining back all of their weight and more. Others may overeat because they see food as a comfort and a source of relief from a past trauma. Whatever the reason may be, the most common offender is a person’s mindset and how they perceive food.
Now how does hypnosis come into play? Hypnosis can help change a person’s attitude and perception of their relationship with food. The ultimate goal is to positively influence the client’s mind and have them feel that smaller portions are adequate and will satisfy their appetite. In other words, people don’t have to give up their favorite foods and turn to a strict diet, and instead they can still enjoy the same things but in smaller quantities.
Overall, hypnosis is all about changing one’s habits for the better. It addresses the subconscious and the root of what makes you tick. If you have problems sticking to a healthy diet or have trouble with portion control, hypnosis may be a viable option for you.
Additional Tips to Integrate Into Your Life:
Other than hypnosis, it doesn’t hurt to integrate more healthy routines into your life. Here are a few to help with weight loss:
- Keep a food diary or tracker and identify if you’re eating because you’re hungry or out of boredom.
- Incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your meals.
- Remember to drink plenty of water daily.
- Make a habit of taking walks or jogs throughout the week to keep your body moving.
- Try not to skip meals because this can slow down your metabolism and make it harder to lose weight.
