Do you struggle with gaining weight? Is it difficult to maintain a healthy weight? Are you constantly judging your self-worth based on your appearance and labeling yourself a failure because you never seem to measure up? How many diets have you tried? Losing the weight you wanted to, reaching your goal and feeling good about yourself … only to eventually regain the weight back?
Frustrating, isn’t it? We are bombarded on a daily basis with pictures and commercials depicting what the perfect person looks like. The endless touting of miracle diets and miracle foods leaves us confused about what really works. Low fat, high fat … low carbs, high carbs … one day something’s good for you, the next day, not so much. It’s no wonder that we find ourselves tempted to just throw our hands up in the air and decide it’s all too difficult to manage.
The truth is that nutrition matters. Nutritionally dense foods give our bodies the building blocks we need for good health, good energy levels and a clear mind. This information is nothing new. Don’t we know that an apple has greater nutritional value than a Twinkie? Of course we do. Do we understand that when we eat unhealthy foods, our bodies suffer with poor health, low energy and excess weight? Again, of course we do. Then why is it so hard to stick to a program of healthy eating?
Unlike quitting smoking, we cannot live without food. You can’t just stop eating. And food is meant to be enjoyed. For most of us, from our earliest memories, food was rewarding, soothing and satisfying. It was the way we were validated either for achievements or for painful episodes in our life.
The challenge is to change our patterns and beliefs that rationalize the behaviors that are detrimental to our health and well-being. So …. How do we do that? The real question is: Are you willing to try something different? Are you ready to participate in a program that has proven results with weight reduction?
Hypnosis is a drug-free modality that can help you overcome cravings and help you to choose healthier options in meal planning. How does this happen? Our conscious mind is a constant dialogue. Who doesn’t have that continual chatter going on in their head? Answer … we all do! It is inventing stories and conversations all the time.
Hypnosis bypasses the conscious mind and communicates with the subconscious mind that is open to positive suggestions and strategies for change. While you will always remain aware during the hypnosis session, your subconscious mind is receiving the information it needs to make permanent life-style changes.
