Does Weight Loss Hypnosis Work?
“How does weight loss hypnosis work?” I hear you asking. When I was a teenager, I asked myself the same thing. I really did not know what to do about my extra weight and being overweight, so I really did not know how to lose it.
But then I started doing some research about this topic and I found out that hypnosis can be used for weight loss. It is sort of like an alternate medicine but one that has been around for many years. People have been trying to figure out if hypnotism works for losing weight. In fact, there are whole books on the subject.
You see, I believe that all the great diet plans out there like Slim Fast, Atkins, South Beach and others are part of the same weight loss myth. Those diets do not work because they are not real. They are not good enough to keep you from overeating. If you want to change your eating habits, you have to understand that hypnosis is your best bet.
The next question you might ask is “What is hypnosis?” It is a method that was developed in the late 1800s by a man named Milton Erickson. He used a form of hypnotism called neuro-linguistic programming. You probably have heard of people who have been exposed to NLP, such as Dr. Phil. This is the same type of hypnosis that I am talking about.
The use of neuro-linguistic programming is to get you to visualize what it is you are trying to accomplish. You see, during the hypnosis process you will be led into a trance. During the trance state you will have an opportunity to make whatever changes you want to make. There are people who have used this technique to lose weight and keep it off. In order for you to lose weight with hypnosis you have to get yourself in the right state of mind.
It is best to choose a reputable hypnotherapist who has a great deal of experience under their belt. They should also be a licensed psychologist. When you start any type of weight loss program, you should always check with your doctor to make sure that it is safe for you to proceed.
Some people use hypnosis to lose weight, but you need to make sure you start with a reputable program. Many programs that claim you can lose a lot of weight quickly and easily are scams. If a program makes outrageous claims, such as you will lose weight without diet or exercise, you should stay far away from them. Instead you should seek a program that is reasonable in their claims. Check with the Better Business Bureau to see if there are any complaints about the weight loss program. The reason you want to do this is because some programs take advantage of people who really need help.
To find out if hypnosis to lose weight really works you will need to have an honest assessment of how much weight you can lose and the time commitment you are willing to commit. You must also check with your doctor to make sure you are healthy enough to participate in a program. Weight loss hypnotism is not right for everyone. Some people cannot or do not want to put their health at risk by using hypnosis to lose weight. Others may have a hard time concentrating when they are under hypnosis. If you do decide that this is right for you then you will need to research the different types of hypnosis available to find the one that will work best for you.
