No Diets, No Changing Foods, No Will Power

"Let me explain our weight-reduction program," the hypnotherapist  said to the inquiring prospective client. "We don't, in most cases use  diet procedures. We find that a problem with diets is that there is a  major change of eating habit patterns and that all the time the client  is looking forward to achievement of the weight goal, at which time the  client can resume eating "normal" food.

Once the weight loss is achieved, the client celebrates by enjoying a reward meal of favorite tastes. Then there often begins an upward  weight trend which can recover all of the lost weight and even add a few pounds more.

Therefore our approach is that the client, if this is a personal  enjoyment, may eat steak and potatoes, or perhaps spaghetti and meat  balls-what ever is most desired. The only difference is that, through  the effects of hypnosis, a much smaller amount of food will be desired  and consumed.

The advantage is that since no enjoyable foods are denied, nothing  is given up: there is no need or desire to return to foods that have  been forbidden. The client simply continues to eat what has been  enjoyed all along, except that quantities are vastly reduced and through hypnosis the appetite is fully satisfied with modest portions of food.

The above scenario and weight-loss program

is just one of the many  that utilize the powers and benefits of hypnotherapy to enable a client  to take off unwanted pounds and keep them off. In this program, the  client need not give up enjoying cocktails or hors d'oeuvres at a party. The client will enjoy one of whatever is served, but on completion of  this "taste" will be completely satisfied, neither desiring nor  accepting further offerings. The hostess is satisfied that her efforts  have been appreciated. Everybody wins!

The above procedure is particularly effective with people whose  excess weight is from overeating, especially where the habit involves  taking of multiple helpings at meals. There are those whose excess  weight is due to physiological causes. Such cases may require medical  intervention.

However, where undesirable weight is due to overeating, metabolism  is likely much less involved than the mind. Changing thoughts and  attitudes of the mind can lead to major changes in life. It can be very helpful, therefore, to determine what may be the causes of a tendency  to overeat.

Sometimes this information is evident or well-known. Other times  it may be suppressed, buried in some incident or event of the past for  which overeating provides a sense of compensation or relief from  pressures or anxieties, lacks in life, grief, anger or other emotions,  sometimes dating back to childhood. Regression under hypnosis is often  effective in ferreting out causes, and sometimes even the simple  understanding of causes can result in elimination of the problem.

Why People Eat

Overeating usually fills a need-or at least is viewed as doing so.  The possible needs, real or imaginary, are many. Some people overeat  to compensate for an unpleasant experience. Others eat excessively to  reward themselves, or possibly for self-entertainment. Some want to be  noticed, and may use a large body to offset a small ego. Eating is used to compensate for the lack of love, to offset fear, to overcome  frustration, to deal with boredom, or sometimes even to avoid sex.

Helpful to the therapist are lists answering such questions as WHEN overeating usually takes place-what psychological or emotional activity is associated with excess eating, and at what usual time of day or  night. WHERE the overeating is done is important-home, at parties, in  restaurants, while watching television, etc. And WHY (for what purpose  or to satisfy what need) is also a factor in understanding the problem.

The consideration of the above-mentioned matters leads to the  establishment of three goals: To achieve the desired weight loss; to  maintain the desired weight once it is achieved; to adopt permanently  the new habit patterns that make the first two goals possible.

Programming For Success

A hypnotherapy program for weight loss will involve several  specific elements which are essential to the achievement of established  objectives:

The client's self-esteem and confidence will be evaluated and  fortified as necessary to achieve a positive outlook and the ability to  visualize mentally the perfect, desired body structure, at the  appropriate weight and with the physical modifications important to the  client.

The client's attitude toward food, overeating and related  satisfactions will be altered to reduce the conceived importance of food as it relates to feelings of well-being.

The client's food interests and tastes will be modified to increase the desire for healthy foods with appropriate nutrition, and reduce the desire for foods high in fats and other harmful elements. Emphasis  will be placed on such matters as quantity consumption, special tastes  (sweet-tooth enjoyment) and negative calorie foods (wherein digestion  requires more calorie burn-up than the total calories in the food  consumed).

Finally, programming will deal with such behavioral matters as  establishing times, places and patterns for future eating, elimination  of harmful habits, and positive reinforcement for relief of stress or  anxiety factors or other causal elements which may require hypnotic  desensitization.

It must be kept in mind that very slow reduction in weight is the  safest procedure. Weight will and should come off very slowly-perhaps  two pounds per week on average. Much reinforcement of the programming  can be accomplished by tapes specifically created to save time and money for the client.
