Excess weight is a curse of modern times. The human body is both brilliant and adaptive.
However, nothing in our evolution prepared it to deal with the quantity of food that is available to us in this day and age. The body is better prepared to deal with a lack of food.
Studies have shown that various animals and humans live longer, healthier lives when they are fed lightly. In the face of plenty it is a common instinct to overeat. We have taken this tendency to an extreme and have become a culture addicted to excess.
Hypnosis is a proven way to change habits and the hypnosis process can help you change unhealthy patterns of eating, therefore creating healthy weight management.
At Direct Path Hypnosis, we will work with you to help form a pattern of eating that works for you.
Hypnosis is not magic, although some would argue; you need to be determined and ready to make important dietary changes. Direct Path Hypnosis can then help you establish healthy patterns and follow through with forming a new approach to food. After deciding how you want to approach your changes, you will be guided through the hypnosis process. In this cooperative state, you receive suggestions customized for you. You only need to follow instructions to make the changes that you came in to make.
Here is how it works… There are two main factors that contribute to weight gain:
1. Eating too much, or eating the wrong kinds of foods. These are habits that can be picked up as early as childhood (though often later). These unwanted habits are difficult to change on your own. Hypnosis makes it much easier.
2. The overlap of food and emotions. Most of our clients are very aware of the connection between food and emotions. Many people eat when they are bored, nervous or lonely. Some eat because of stress. Others are emotional eaters and don’t even know it. Our approach offers you a process that helps develop control over your habits. You can tame emotional eating, and positively change your relationship with food; rethinking the emotional link that causes over eating and weight gain. Our work is designed to help you overcome any patterns of eating that are related to stress or emotion. This process will reduce the desire to eat when you are not truly hungry. Understanding these factors improves your ability to control the quantity and quality of the food you eat.
Our primary goal is to help you achieve lasting change. During the hypnosis sessions, you will gain additional insight into your eating patterns and be empowered to create more healthy new patterns.
Self-hypnosis can also help assure permanent results.
As part of the hypnosis process you will have the opportunity to learn self-hypnosis, a powerful aid to ongoing self-improvement.
As for food intake each client is different in this respect. It depends on many factors such as how much weight you want to lose, how quickly you want to lose it and whether or not exercise is part of your effort. Many hypnosis clients report that they did not have to restrict the foods they ate to reach their weight loss goal, they simply ate more carefully. There are also those individuals who may need to follow a formal diet while they are using hypnosis to lose all the weight they want to lose. The primary benefit of hypnosis is that it makes it easier to eat in a more careful and balanced manner. You will have the choice to determine the eating pattern that will most benefit you. It’s not magic, but it’s that easy with hypnosis.
