Weight Loss: Hypnotherapy helped me do it!

Finally, following having Hypnotherapy for weight loss I can finally say it has helped me (I'll go through how in a minute) to achieve my first target weight of 95Kg.

At first I thought this would be a mammoth of a challenge, I've never been one to lose weight, Even with my military background, I've always been one of those people who either stay at one particular weight or keep creeping up towards breaking the scales.

So how has hypnotherapy helped me I can hear you thinking. Firstly once I was put into an hypnotic trance, I was given the suggestion to stop snacking, I know this doesn't sound like much but I could easily eat 1/2 - 3/4 of a packet of digestives with a cup of tea in the evening.

I always knew it's wasn't good for me, I just couldn't stop myself from the enjoyment. I now go daily without even thinking about snacking in any form. The only time I do have something small is if I'm REALLY hungry.

I was also taught (whilst in trance) how to actually notice when my stomach is full. This has helped me not try to fill my face with a plate full of food until destruction, you know that feeling when you say 'why did I eat so much'.

My other big goal when given the therapy was to start eating more fruit and vegetables. This element went a little less smooth as I still haven't got used to the texture of fruit. however, I've been enjoying to taste.. Vegetables have been more of a success, enjoying more different vegetables with my meals rather than just plain old peas.

Together with these simple methods and a bit more physical I'm proud to say I've been able to drop from 110kg to 95.5kg. My clothes fit me (or too big in some cases), and my belt is back to being worn on the first hole.

I'm sure some people who read this think its common sense eat less food and you'll lose weight, however its not been the quantity per say that I've changed, but more the type of foods that I'm eating.

If I've been feeling like I'm full during a meal I simply stop and leave.

Hypnosis helped me lose weight!

During my Hypnotherapy Diploma, I took the opportunity to undergo a weight loss session, Now as a 6'3" male I was weighing 17.1St before the course. Training has not been capable due to a knee injury, I've also been very poor at eating fruit and veg.

A lady on the course (Bev) completed her diploma a few months before but was after a refresher. So I challenged her to hypnotise me for weight loss. I explained how my only intake of veg was a portion of peas, as I was put off veg when younger due to my dad force feeding me if I didn't finish my vegetables.

After approx 40-50 minutes of going through a number of past memories and changing the way I thought about fruit and veg I spent the next 15 minutes thinking how I wanted to buy and apple from the local store. The strange thing was I kept saying to myself that I was being stupid, but the more I thought that the more I wanted to purchase and taste an apple.

In the end i purchased a bag of apples, to my amazement I took a bite and the old retching reaction didn't happen. I also found the apple to be very tasty. But how  could this be? I've never liked eating apples, but it was nice... later that evening when having my dinner i ordered a burger (I know not the healthiest of choices). When it was served it came with salad on the burger. Now normally i would just flick the 'Rabbit food' off an be one with it, but this evening I had this voice in my head that was telling me to try it.. So i did, and to my amazement again (that's now twice in one day) I enjoyed it.

I always knew that the hardest person to believe that I had made these changes to my life would be my wife (I'm not 100% sure she's convinced). But when I was making my cereal for breakfast and didn't put my normal sprinkle of sugar on top as my head said I didn't need it I was confused, especially when I ate it and it still tasted the same as when I would have the sugar on top.

Since being on the course (of which i started 17.1st) I've been able to stop junk food eating, mostly cutting down on bread intake. I've also been able to manage the pain in my knee more, allowing me to complete for physical activity and drop down to my current weight of 16.3st in the 2 week period.

So should you sill be reading this far in, always realise that you can make the changes you require to lose weight. It's fair to say its all in your head, but sometimes you need that nudge to assist you.

If you want to lose weight I suggest hypnotherapy, not just because I'm a therapist but because its changed my life more that I could imagine. Get in touch today for a free consultation: Bookings & Enquiries.

Hypnotic Trance To Stop Snacking

Since becoming qualified as a Hypnotherapist a lot of women ask, “can you stop me eating junk food?” Now although that's the first question, there also seems to be a trending theme of not liking to eat three regular meals a day, or not liking to see their reflection in a mirror.

So why do they let them get themselves like this? Is it starving through the day, as no calories mean weight loss right? Or can it be through social media and magazines seeing the skinnier photoshopped models who create an inner doubt about who they are?

I truly believe that what the person has gone through, be it in childhood or teenage years that has set this pattern in place. even when that jealous person in a classroom calls that person a fat whatever that creates an emotional bond and irregular eating pattern.

Everyone knows that the worst food always tastes the best. The biscuits that you know have 150+ calories per biscuit, but tastes SO good when dunked in to a cup of tea. But why do we choose these foods when we know they are unhealthy in the first place? Is it the chemicals/ingredients that create an addictive reaction, the same (but less intense) that an alcoholic or drug addict gets. Yes that sounds extreme, but why does your conscious mind keep telling yourself 'just one more will be ok'?

So how can hypnosis change this negative feeling, to create a positive mind? Well if you are still reading this blog it would be fair to say that you have some things that regularly play on your mind. Of course you do because you're human, however, some of these negative feelings will be linked with the feelings from when you was younger and saw the edited model that made you feel 'fat'. So... once these feelings  and thoughts are gone, what is left to stop you from changing your ways? Nothing.

For anyone who's reading this that thinks they cannot be hypnotised or it's not real, just remember how many times you've been suggestible to adverts on TV or in magazines. It's the same result, just different method.

So, next time you're heading for the snack cupboard for the biscuit barrel just think, WHY?

In the video below you see how I've helped someone to like more fruit and veg, over skype, in New Zealand. You can make these changes in life.
