Will Using Hypnosis
Lose Weight For Me?
As a Consulting Hypnotist one of the questions I am most often asked is, Will using hypnosis lose weight for me? I tell people that hypnosis can very definitely work to help them lose weight although how well it will help them depends of a couple of important points.
First things first. Before I get to whether hypnosis can work for you, a fair question would be, How can I be so sure that hypnosis can help you lose weight? Proof of how well hypnosis helps people lose weight comes from three sources.
- Clinical research,
- The success of my weight loss clients,
- My personal success with using hypnosis for weight loss.
Hypnosis Lose Weight Research
It is a surprise to many people to learn that hypnosis has been rigorously tested in a variety of clinical research studies and shown to be extremely helpful for people wanting to lose weight. These studies are not well publicized, perhaps because you can not turn hypnosis into a pill and market it for millions of dollars!
For example, in a study detailed in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 60 women were divided into groups that used hypnosis for weight loss and those that did not. Convincingly, the hypnosis weight loss groups lost an average of 17 pounds while the non-hypnosis groups lost a mere half a pound on average.
Another valid concern people have is whether or not their weight loss success will last. After all, how many people have lost some weight only to put it all back on (and some more) quite soon after their initial success. Again, the clinical evidence strongly supports the use of hypnosis for a lasting effect.
For example, a study reported in the Journal of Clinical Psychology followed the results of groups that used hypnosis to lose weight and those that did not. Those groups that used weight loss hypnosis encouragingly continued to get good results in a two year follow up to the original study while the non-hypnosis groups had no further results to show for their weight loss efforts.
Weight Loss Hypnosis in Action
The clinical research results accurately reflect the experience that clients regularly achieve in my busy Hypnosis practice at the Queen Elizabeth Health Complex in Montreal.
People come to see me every week with a wide variety of weight loss challenges that they desperately want and need to succeed at. Some have a lot of weight to lose while for others it is those stubborn last few pounds that they just can't seem to let go of.
Some people come to work with me who overeat, eat unhealthy foods, have food cravings or are emotionally driven to use food to distract themselves away from feelings they do not like (stress, boredom, anger etc.).
Whatever the weight loss challenge, hypnosis can and does make the difference for these clients. They finally achieve success in turning their weight problem around.
Of course, I also personally use hypnosis to control my weight. After all, what is good for my clients is equally good for my own health and well being!
Will Hypnosis Help You Lose Weight?
Now that you understand the potential that Hypnosis has for helping you in a completely new way to finally achieve permanent weight loss success you may be curious about trying it for yourself. However, a word of caution. I will not work with just anyone in my Hypnosis practice for weight loss and you deserve to know why.
The reason is that Hypnosis will work for you only if you really desire to lose the weight. If in truth you really could not be bothered one way or the other if you shed those unneeded pounds then hypnosis is not going to work for you.
This is because you remain completely in control while in hypnosis and your mind is very aware of whether you really want to make the changes in behavior necessary to let go of the weight. It will not cooperate if you really do not care. You need to be emotionally invested in your weight loss project.
Not only do you have to want to lose the weight, you have to want to do it for yourself. This means it is not helpful wanting to lose weight just to please someone else. Your mind works for you and no one else while you are in hypnosis!
By-the-way, it does not matter what the reasons motivating you to lose weight. The important thing is that you have a reason or reasons to let the weight go. You may be motivated by wanting to be healthier, able to wear that new outfit for a wedding, or to look good on the beach this year. Makes no difference as long as the reasons are important to you.
The final factor that determines success with hypnosis is for you to have no fear of hypnosis. Many people I meet have picked up all sorts of unfounded fears about hypnosis.
I imagine this is the result of them having seen or heard about some strange antics of a stage show hypnotist or the wild imaginings of some Hollywood script writer.
If you are fearful of hypnosis then of course you will not allow yourself to enter into this natural state in order to do the necessary weight loss work. Such fears are of course easily put to rest with a little explanation in my office before clients relax into an enjoyable state of hypnosis.
However, for those of you who do not have the benefit of talking to a professional hypnotist you need to know that hypnosis is a completely natural and safe state of consciousness to be in. You remain aware all the time and are very much in control.
