If you try hypnosis to lose weight, you will subconsciously be changing your eating habits so you will never have to diet again. Hypnosis is a process that helps your conscious mind relax so suggestions can reach your subconscious mind. When hypnosis is used because you want to change something in your life, it really does work.
Dieting usually works for a short time when you are trying to lose weight, but the problem is that the pounds usually come back on when the diet is over. The best way to lose weight and keep it off is by changing your eating habits. If you find change hard to do on your own, being hypnotized to shed those unwanted pounds can help you make the change and keep those extra pounds off.
Hypnosis to change something in your life is not done in one session, you need to reinforce the suggestions of eating healthier to change your habits. If you decide to go to a hypnotherapist, they will teach you how to relax your conscious mind and give suggestions to your subconscious mind. The therapist will tell you that you need to come back repeatedly so the suggestions to lose weight stick in your mind.
You can do self hypnosis to lose weight. The process of learning to relax your conscious mind is the same except, it will be done with a cassette tape. Instead of listening to a therapist in their office, you will do this in your home. The expense is a lot less but the results will be the same.
The key to having hypnosis work, is that you want to lose the weight. If you are doing this for someone else, hypnosis will probably not work for you. Your subconscious only knows to follow instructions that it hears. If you are fighting between what you want, and what someone else wants any suggestions may not stick with you.
Your subconscious mind does not know the difference between reality and imagination. Given the suggestions that you want to eat healthy foods and that larger portions make you sick your subconscious will eventually instruct your conscious mind that those things are real. This may not happen in a few days or even a couple of weeks, but it will happen.
Most of the self-hypnosis tapes that are available for weight loss deal with willpower, self image, and balancing your eating habits. You will be given the suggestion to imagine yourself as you want to look and to focus on that image. You will also be told that small portions of food make your stomach feel full, and that a big dessert makes you feel sick and that you do not like the taste of it. These are just of few of the suggestions you might be given.
Your success depends on if you want to lose weight and on how often you listen to the hypnosis tape. It is recommended that you listen to the tape once a day for a few weeks to really set the suggestions in your subconscious, and to let those suggestions convince your conscious mind. Hypnosis to lose weight has none of the drawbacks of a diet, no cravings, no feelings of hunger, just a stress free way of changing your eating habits.
