The idea that one is beautiful has always been erroneously associated with body shape and size. This is why many people, especially those who are overweight and obese try so hard to look for the easiest and fastest remedy that will enable them to cut corners, solutions like extremely tiring and demanding exercise regimes, fad weight loss diets and diet pills. These quick, temporary solutions, however, are most likely to fail because these do not address the real source of the problem.
Well, let’s face it. Being heavier does have negative effects. First, it is unhealthy and increases a person’s risk of developing severe conditions, including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, heart attack or cancer. Second, it has social repercussions, like verbal/emotional bullying and/or discrimination, which can lead to low self-confidence, stress and/or depression.
Some of those whose resolve to lose weight is sincere (like through dieting) achieve what they hope to accomplish. However, diet and nutrition plans focus only on the food they eat – specifically, the food’s nutritional value and the amount consumed. Eat plenty of non-nutritional food, though one may enjoy, he/she will suffer his/her act’s consequence: additional body fats and weight. On the other hand, diet and eat only nutritional food, one may dislike the lack in taste, but he/she would not be sorry for the results. The only concern he/she would have is how long he/she will have to keep eating this way.
Hypnotherapy as a solution for weight loss is an alternative, a very effective alternative, in fact to dieting and exercising too much (well, exercising, not too much, should never be taken out of the picture, though, due to the tremendous benefits it has). While hypnotherapy does not make one stop from eating nutritional food, what it does exactly is make him/her enjoy the food he/she is eating. It makes a person change his/her thinking pattern, allowing him/her to gain control over his/her cravings in a way that will not depress him/her.
As explained in the website of the Orlando Hypnosis Clinic, hypnosis is not a magic pill or solution that will make a person drop thirty pounds in a week; this is neither realistic nor healthy. Positive suggestions, instead, is what will serve as the roadmap to success. While in a comfortable trance state a hypnotist will give verbal positive suggestion to eat healthy food instead of junk food. He/She will help replace bad behavioral habits with healthy ones.
After hypnosis the person hypnotized may even become aware that he/she always has a choice when it comes down to what to eat: nutritional meal, fruits, and vegetables. That’s it. Hypnosis is a very effective tool for normalizing weight naturally – without surgery, drugs or pills.
