Can I Use Hypnosis to Lose Weight?

For decades, people have turned to hypnotherapy to help them in all sorts of way, from unearthing and resolving hidden issues from one’s past to severe behavior modification. Hypnotherapy has been used with great success in helping people quit smoking, build self-esteem, and learn new subjects and skills. It’s no wonder people are turning now to hypnosis to also help them lose weight.

Does it work? For some. Hypnosis works on the unconscious mind through the power of suggestion, and the effectiveness with which a person can be hypnotized depends on how receptive the subject is to the experience. Put another way, hypnosis works best for people who come at it with an “open mind”.

How does hypnosis help a person lose weight? The same way it helps modify any behavior, by targeting your habits. It is one’s habits that lead to excessive weight gain and obesity, and it’s a change in those habits, replacing old “bad” ones with new “good” ones, that produce the kind of changes that can be sustained.

To build new, desirable, and sustainable habits, you must break down all your old associations regarding yourself, your weight, your appearance, food and eating, exercise, etc. and build new, positive and desirable associations. This is where hypnosis can be of tremendous aid.

In a hypnotic state, you can more easily overcome those unconscious obstacles that hinder your weight loss efforts. Most people already know full well that proper diet and exercise is the way to lose weight, and yet so many find themselves helpless to do what they know they “should” be doing.

What causes that is usually an unconscious association from our pasts that we’ve habituated in our everyday lives. These associations become so much a part of us we don’t ever think about them, much less question them. But when we remove our conscious mind from the equation, we’re more easily able to access those deep-seeded assumptions and reprogram them.

A person who continually struggles with diet and exercise programs, jumping from one to another as each in turn proves increasingly fruitless is most likely unconsciously resisting their own aims. As long as this condition remains, every attempt this person makes at weight loss will be equally counterproductive.

Losing weight is a state of mind. A person must be willing to lose weight to lose it – not simply be willing to diet and exercise, but deep down willing to lose weight. Success depends on a winning attitude on an unconscious level that permeates everything you do, whatever you do.

Hypnosis can help you build a new self-image, allowing you to envision yourself at your future weight. Hypnosis can help approach your weight and weight-loss program from am ore relaxed and stress-free perspective. Hypnosis can help build your optimism, enthusiasm and (most importantly) self-esteem for the task. And hypnosis can help you experience some of the benefits of living at your ideal weight here and now, in the present, even whilst you live in the body in which you currently live.

The key to having a successful experience using hypnosis to lose weight is realizing that hypnosis alone won’t do it. No amount of hypnosis can replace a healthy and balanced diet and an active lifestyle with a blend of aerobic and anaerobic exercise. Nothing can replace these cornerstones of maintaining a healthy weight, but hypnotherapy can certainly make adopting these new habits easier and more pleasurable, as it can put you in the right frame of mind to reap the benefits of all you do to get your weight loss goals met.
