How and why the Weight Loss Diet often fails

Why diet for weight loss?

Diets often work against your weight loss goals.  They restrict your eating and what you can enjoy. Most weight gain is a result of emotional eating. It is however,  no coincidence that most junk food is also comfort food.  This means that you are not likely to stay on a diet long if it is of no comfort to you.

People tend to get to a size where it becomes a pain (emotionally or physically) and then go on a diet.  At first they lose weight but after a time they plateau and just staying at that weight becomes a pain,  so they stop and put it all back on again.  This is Yo Yo dieting and is very unhealthy.

You seek the junk food because you were often given it as a treat or to comfort you when you were young.  Today when you get stressed, hurt or upset your brain goes for the pattern that worked in the past.  It seeks comfort in the form of food high in sugar, fat or both.

Hypnotherapy aims to treat the stress issues that cause us to behave in this way by changing the patterns in our relationship with food.

Looking good

I Just Want To Look Fantastic! It may be that you are healthy but just want to tone up a bit.
Looking your best is important.  It is wonderful for your self-esteem.  Don’t you just love those admiring looks as you walk down the street?  Or perhaps on the beach in a bikini?

The trouble is that as we age it can become more difficult to keep in shape because we tend to exercise less.  Let’s face it, healthy eating all the time isn’t much fun either.  Why not change your relationship with food so that you do not over eat which means you can eat the food you enjoy without worrying about piling on weight.  To do this though you do need to have your brain working with you and not against you. This is what hypnosis does!

Many people struggle with weight control because of food “cravings,” and research tells us that it is fairly common for food “cravings” to occur at certain times, quite often around bedtime. Your guard may be down, or you may have had an unusually hard day, and off you go on your not-so-merry way, intent on finding that tasty treat.  Fatigue and stress often combine to take their toll on the best of intentions, so please don’t worry about it, rest assured you are not alone.

Health reasons

Avoiding weight gain as you get older is an important way to prevent a host of weight-related health problems.  Indeed, if you are more than 20 pounds over your ideal weight, you are at greater risk of a rogues gallery of potentially nasty or even deadly conditions, which includes diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, endometrial cancer, obstructive sleep apnoea, and breast cancer.

What’s more, most people who are overweight tend to avoid exercise, and that avoidance just adds to the toll paid for extra pounds.

Diabetes is the major concern and already in the UK is nearly 4 times as common as all forms of cancer combined.  You are 20 times more likely to go blind if you have diabetes.

Because it does not involve drugs or any kinds of medications and surgery, professionals tend to think that losing weight through hypnosis is one of the safest and most effective weight control programs.

Hypnosis can also help with those times when you are having a bad day and just get a craving for something you know is bad for you. This means you dont fall off the wagon so easily
