For many who are struggling to lose weight, starting a weight loss hypnosis program can really help them to overcome the emotional reasons that cause them to overeat. Many of us eat, not because we are hungry, but because of some emotional trigger – either you are stressed out, or your sad about something, or maybe your happy – how many times have you used food not only as a comfort but also to celebrate?
Hypnosis works on your subconscious mind, reprogramming these unwanted behaviour patterns and bad habits. Hypnosis can help with weight loss because you can program your subconscious mind to want to eat nutritious foods in the proper amounts and only when you are hungry and need nourishment.
Habits are easily formed and can quickly become automatic – ingrained in our subconscious. Habits like always having a dessert with supper or getting an egg sandwhich with your coffee every morning whether you are hungry or not. How many times have you sat on the couch watching TV and wolfed down a bag of potato chips? Were you even hungry? Did you even taste them? You see, these habits become so ingrained in our subconscious then eventually when we don’t give in to them we start to feel deprived.
When you apply weight loss hypnosis, you reprogram your subconscious to get rid of these bad habits and put good habits in their place. This is totally safe and harmless, in fact hypnosis can be used for many other things besides weight loss and once you learn to relax your mind properly you may find many more uses for it.
The first step to hypnosis is, in fact, relaxing your mind. You can do this in a few ways – one is to sit in a quite place where you know you will not be interrupted and gradually relax your body from the feet up. Another is through affirmations or suggestions. It is actually a bit like meditation however meditation is meant to clear the mind of all thought and hypnosis is meant to introduce positive thoughts to the subconscious.
After you are relaxed, or in a hypnotic state, suggestions will be made to your subconscious mind. You can try self hypnosis for this either by yourself or with a tape or see an experienced hypnotist. The goal is to reprogram your subconscious from the habits of unhealthy eating so that you will not longer eat when you are not hungry and will want to eat nutritious foods.
The subconscious is a very powerful tool and weight loss hypnosis is just one way that you can utilize it in order to realize your full potential and have the life you’ve always wanted.
