Hypnosis for weight loss is more popular than ever. CBHypnotherapy can address eating habit disorders in all its different forms, whether it is overeating, under-eating, binge eating, or unhealthy eating patterns.
Having a balanced diet is an essential factor in both physical and mental health. A healthy body responds to the stresses of daily life better than an unhealthy one. Nutrition, along with exercise, is one of the essential tools for maintaining good health.
When talking about weight-loss, it is essential to establish the fact that there is not one body shape or size that is better over others. It is necessary to keep this in mind because of the popular tropes promoting a certain standard. Thinner is not better. This reality is, unfortunately, something prevalent today. You can’t work on weight loss without working on the beauty standards of our society and how we choose to fuse with them to some extent.
Your ideal weight is not a number. It’s the moment where your perception of your body and your general health allows you to enjoy life to the fullest.
The word “diet” is originally a noun, not a verb. And in my opinion, it’s the root of a big problem.
Hence, everyone has a diet and but modern society repeat you that you should diet. The difference is the notion of restriction. At the moment, what’s society tells you is to compensate for unhealthy behaviours.
A good jog justifies being bad through an ample serving of sweets, leading to surplus calories.
We do a restrictive diet at the beginning of the year to compensate for the excess of the end of years festivities.
The consequences are that you never change what creates the imbalance at the beginning, and you never can maintain long term benefits.
Cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy will help stick to a diet on an ongoing basis that serves both your health and wellbeing and free from the curse of perpetual restrictive dieting.
Successful outcomes demand the right combination of three components: proper nutrition, physical activity, and behaviour modification. We generally pay a lot of attention to the first two nutrition and exercise but not so much on the last component, behaviour modification, which is put far on the backburner. And it has consequences. The “yo-yo” effect of dieting and gaining weight back again is a result of failing to modify problematic cognitions and behaviours.
Everybody (nutritionist, magazine, family, and friends ) tells you what to eat or not to eat, what exercises to do.
BUT Nobody tells you what to do to :
- manage cravings and urges to comfort food,
- handle difficult emotions when you’re in a stressful situation,
- be assertive when someone offers you food in a social environment,
And that’s just a few examples.
Hypnosis can help you with that.
Weight problems are often the symptom of a broad range of complex issues. Consequently, a multi-component approach is the most appropriate for weight loss or and management. Most of the weight problems are also linked with a counter-productive way of thinking, a vicious circle, that creates an eating behaviour that is not healthy for you.
Cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy can help you change cognitions and behaviours now so you can manage your weight in the long term.
This multi-component approach will help you to think differently about planning meals, to stay active, and prioritise physical health, learn surrounding yourself with supportive friends and family.
