Now that you’ve decided to become fit for life, what next? How do you get from here to there? Becoming healthy and trim should not be a chore. It feels fabulous to be light, healthy and strong and the journey to getting there should also feel great. The best weight loss program, if done right, lowers your stress and raises your energy levels.
A good weight loss program needs to get fast results. It needs to be simple, enjoyable and composed of sound nutritional habits that keep working after the excess weight is gone.
To lose weight permanently you must increase your metabolism and lower your “set point.” Grueling work-outs are unnecessary, frustrating and can even cause injury. The right exercise routine for you is one that is fun, leaves you feeling energized, and that you look forward to doing!
Successful weight loss does not require a radical lifestyle change. The best weight loss plan only requires small changes that fit easily into your current lifestyle. You lose weight while you continue to eat the foods you love.
Most importantly, the best weight loss plan is the one that you can stay with for life! This is why diets fail!
Hypnosis is the big game changer! Because while most people can lose weight on a diet, their old “default system” eventually reactivates and they sink right back into their same unhealthy eating patterns and sluggish habits. Hypnosis can make it easy for you to adopt new healthy habits without relapsing into your old fat causing behaviors. In hypnosis, your subconscious mind can begin to accept healthy living as your “new default” so that staying slender is as automatic as writing your name. (Yes, hypnosis really is just like that.)
Imagine yourself fit and feeling energetic, preferring healthy foods over junk and loving to move your beautiful new body. Can you see yourself free to think and live like a slim person – and become a slim person! Does this sound good? Hypnosis can make it your reality.
DO YOU NEED MORE PROOF?
HERE’S THE RESEARCH!
Hypnosis has been scientifically proven to be a safe, natural and effective way to lose weight. Researchers have found that those who used hypnosis lost significantly more weight than those who did not – and, more importantly, they kept it off years later. Consider these published reports:
In a study of 60 females at least 20% overweight, Hypnosis was Over 30 Times more Effective for Weight Loss than the control group. The hypnosis group averaged a 17 lb. weight loss while the control group averaged only a 0.5 lb. loss.
(Gordon Cochrane and J. Friesen, “Hypnotherapy in Weight Loss Treatment” Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology.)
And in another study of 109 people who completed behavioral modification for weight loss both with and without hypnosis over a nine week period, follow-ups at 8 month and 2 year intervals showed that the hypnosis subjects continued to lose significant weight while the others showed little further change.
(Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology – 1985)
In an analysis of 18 studies comparing cognitive behavioral therapy both with and without the addition of hypnosis, those who received hypnosis lost more weight than 90% of those who did not. And they maintained the weight loss two years after the treatment ended.
(University of Connecticut, Storrs, Allison DB, Faith MS. Hypnosis as an adjunct to cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy for obesity: a meta-analytic reappraisal.)
And in an analysis of five weight loss studies, all five indicated that hypnosis can more than double the effects of traditional weight loss approaches. (University of Connecticut, Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1996)
In yet another study cited in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology it was reported that the benefits of hypnosis actually increase over time.
THE RESEARCH IS CLEAR
If you are serious about losing weight, then shifting your mental relationship with food will be the key to fast and long lasting success. This is why weight loss clients do significantly better than those who attempt to lose weight on their own. Willpower works only temporarily, but cannot maintain it’s strength. Because willpower is nothing more than resistance, it does nothing to alleviate the compelling force – desire. Like a rubber band that has been stretched away from something, eventually it snaps back – in force – straight back the opposite direction toward the resisted (mmmmm donut) object. Hypnosis removes the old mental patterns so that healthy eating habits are installed abad resistance (or willpower) is unnecessary. Weight loss comes naturally as the old unhealthy eating patterns, and the desires that cause them, shift into new healthy habits. As you change your mind, you change your body! And you keep the results!
