Losing weight and keeping it off can be a challenge. You have probably already tried a range of diets and exercise programs. And after all that effort and denial, you lose some weight, only to have it creep back on again.
The truth is, you will only lose weight permanently when your actions and desires are in alignment.
We don’t believe in quick fixes for weight loss because we know that a comprehensive approach that supports you emotionally, physically and psychologically is the best way to achieve long-term weight loss and a lasting improvement in your health and wellbeing.
With the hypnosis for Weight Loss and Balanced Eating Program, you will learn new information and be supported to adopt healthy habits that lead to gradual, sustainable weight loss that is right for your body type.
You can also experience real, lasting change by releasing old emotional patterns that may be associated with your approach to food.
Research has show that a mindful approach to eating is an effective way of losing weight, improving eating habits and maintaining these good habits in the long term.
The Harvard School of Public website has some very informative and accessible articles on the subject, to learn more see here.
The Weight Loss and Balanced Eating Program
The program is tailored to your specific needs. Here is a brief over view of the key elements:
You will learn and begin to experience that the way you eat is just as important as what you eat and how much you eat. For more information on mindful eating see the Resources Page.
Stress and anxiety
Feeling stressed, anxious or over tired can have an impact on the food choices we make. You will learn very simple but effective ways to balance your nervous system, allowing you to naturally feel calmer and more relaxed without resorting to high fat, high sugar, comfort foods.
Why wait? You can start making those positive changes right now.
Go to the Resources Page for guided relaxation meditations to melt away stress and tension.
Real or emotional hunger
Do you eat every time you feel something – boredom, stress, anxiety maybe even happiness? If so, you are not alone.
Most of the decisions we make about what and when to eat have nothing to do with physical hunger but are based on a feeling or an emotion.
If you are an emotional eater and this habit is derailing your efforts to lose weight, with hypnotherapy you can learn to recognize the difference between real and emotional hunger and install into your subconscious new, healthy ways of satisfying real hunger.
Appropriate food choices
You will learn to make food choices that support your health and wellbeing as you continue to respond to your body’s innate tendency towards balance and harmony.
Did you know that what you eat at breakfast can make a big difference to your eating pattern for the rest of the day?
In a study reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition researchers found that people who ate a high protein breakfast ate less over the course of the day and were less hungry than those who skipped breakfast or ate a low protein breakfast – ajcn.nutrition.org/content/83/2/211.short
Patterns from the past
Unresolved emotional issues can influence our relationship with food and prevent us from making the positive changes we want, regardless of how motivated and committed we are.
It may be that unmet needs or fears from the past are causing your food related problems. For example, one client told me that whenever she finished speaking to her mother on the phone she found herself in the kitchen eating, usually something soft and sweet.
When she realized this was a pattern, she was able to connect, in a kind and loving way, with the part of her that felt the urge to eat and positive behavioral changes followed naturally.
Changes that last
The biggest frustration with a dieting approach to weight loss is that for most people, the results are not sustainable.
If you’ve had enough of the the struggle-denial-succumb-to temptation-guilt cycle so common to the deprivation mentality of dieting it’s time to try a different approach.
You can learn to enjoy a new, healthy relationship with food based on an understanding of your body’s needs, your emotional triggers, and how you deal with stress.
Hypnotherapy enables you to access your resourceful subconscious mind and establish new patterns and habits that will stay with you.
Enjoy the feeling of letting go those extra kilos naturally, be at your ideal weight for the long term, at a pace that is right for you. Call or email for more information about the Connect Hypnosis Weight Loss and Balanced Eating Program.
