How Does Hypnosis Help You Lose Weight?
Listen, you're a smart person so you already know most people don't turn to hypnosis as their first step in weight loss. After all, most people's understanding of hypnosis comes from dramatic movies and misinformed television shows. In fact, hypnosis is so misunderstood that the running joke in the industry is that people tend to choose to see a hypnotist because they cant find "Witch Doctor" in the phone directory.
But you're here now and because I've been doing this for so many years now, I know you've probably tried the weight loss fads like supplements, starving yourself and the exercise programs and had some success and got sidetracked and ended up right back where you were.
It's the Yo-yo Effect that most weight loss techniques have and it’s incredibly frustrating, I know.
But you want to know the biggest secret to losing weight? It’s not just facing up to the the difficulty of exercise or the frustration of changing how you eat, it’s managing the behavior and thought patterns that lead you to fall back to your old weight. It's getting the thoughts in your mind and the feelings in your spirit set up right.
As humans, we all have those little habitual thoughts that we can do without. Nasty little unconscious elements that tell you that you somehow deserve to be heavy, that's it's "just how things are" and you cant really fight it or you somehow should feel bad about yourself and wouldn't a snack make you feel better?
Undoing those thought loops doesn't just enable you to lose weight...it changes your entire outlook on life. Imagine not only losing weight, but actually enjoying doing it, knowing that you can actually do this and feel happy about it.
Let me be the first to tell you, the person you’ll become when you find those elements of your unconscious, master them and put your unconscious to work according to your will… deserves to be heard, deserves to be seen and deserves to emerge. Your loved ones need that person in their lives and you absolutely deserve to live that life.
Of course you want to lose weight, look great and feel confident! Of course you want to be able to move easier, be healthier and enjoy your life more. And OF COURSE you want to live longer, happier and pass on those good habits and health to your children and grandchildren!
So, it's now time to take control. Time to step up and break down the barriers that are holding you back! It's time to go and meet the life that's waiting for you!
Hypnosis is the tried and true way to learn about the internal mechanisms that sabotage you and turn them to work in your favor. Using hypnosis, you and I will explore the profoundly deep seated motivations you need to choose your weight loss path and STICK TO IT!
This is the call to adventure in any good story, including yours! Step one is acceptance of where you are in life and why it is you want to change. This is the assessment stage, where you and I are going to work through what happened to get you where you are and how to remove the mental blacks that stand in the way of your success.
This is where we determine your current exercise and fitness limits and whether your approach will be purely hypnotic or involve a degree of physical exercise as well.
We'll also determine what your ACTUAL goals are, beyond weight loss, and put together a hypnotically structured program to help you bust through those barriers and get well on your way to your goals.
This is where the magic happens!
The work. This is where you will sweat it out and delve deeper into your mind and body as you forge new muscle mind connections and begin to realize your true potential. I’ll be with you every step of the way as you discover new purpose and meaning through this program and discover a new you.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer nutritional guidance?
I’m a lot of things, but I’m not a nutritionist. I’m happy to discuss what macro-nutrients your body will need but for a detailed plan, I strongly recommend a nutritionist or your physician.
Do I HAVE to exercise? Won't hypnosis work without exercise?
I will always recommend exercise because of it’s truly MASSIVE AND SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN wealth of evidence showing how it improves mental health, confidence, Muscle/fat ratio, immune response, manages your weight and hormonal levels and generally improves your life in too many ways to accurately count.
That said, hypnosis can change the behavior patterns that tend to lead to destructive eating habits. So if you have an impairment that prevents exercise, you will still massively benefit from my program.
Will I lose Too MUCH weight?
Your unconscious mind exists to keep you safe and won't let you reach a dangerously low level of weight through my program.You and I will also be checking in routinely and fine tuning any changes you need as we go so there is no need to worry that you're on your own or left to struggle through this change.
I've always been tall. I was born big, and like most people, just got bigger. Because of my size, I've always had a huge appetite. Once I reached my adult height of 6'3, I didn't change my eating habits, I just kept eating. Because I was highly active through most of my youth that wasn't a huge problem... until my thirties.
As more sedentary pursuits became a mainstay in my life, my weight very quickly got out of control. At my largest, I pushed up to nearly 300 pounds. To make it worse, because I am very broad shouldered, this change wasn't immediately visible and the shock of finally checking my weight and seeing how close I was to the big three-oh-oh floored me. I was massively overweight and massively out of shape.
The guy I used to be was gone, hidden somewhere inside of me, buried under the weight that I didn't need. I liked that guy and I wanted him back. So, like you're doing right now, I made a choice. I changed my mind and my life. I educated myself more thoroughly on exercise and nutrition, became certified as a personal trainer to further my knowledge base and, most importantly, I used hypnosis.
At 43 years old, I’ve since lost nearly 90 pounds of body fat while gaining lean muscle mass.
The one thing that absolutely stuck out to me is that If weight loss and fitness consisted only of knowing the right strategies and methods, we’d all have our summer bodies year round. But just knowing what to do doesn't get the job done on it's own. It takes work, dedication and most importantly, taking the time to make the choice to finally make that change. The kind of deep, internal choice you get only when enlisting your unconscious mind in the process.
Look, I've tried the pills, the exercise fads and starvation. It all works for a while...but it's the long term lifestyle change that really keeps that weight off and helps you change your life for good. Because those external changes require internal shifts in mindset, It wasn’t until I changed my thoughts that I took the weight off and kept it off.
And, I’m incredibly excited to share this hypnotic transformation process with you.
