may wonder why there is more than one recording for weight loss. The fact
is that people tend to be overweight for many different wrong reasons
. Let's see if you agree with me:
- Did you ever eat in
front of the television at night less than four hours after a meal?
- Did you ever snack
between meals food with no nutritive value?
- Did you ever crave
some specific type of food?
- Did you ever eat out
- Do you agree with
the statement "if I don't have it in my house, I will probably
not eat it?"
- Did you ever alternate
between privation and excess?
- Did you ever eat to
- Did you ever empty
your plate because someone told you to do it?
- Did you ever follow
a diet or took weight loss pills and then realized , a couple of months
later, that you had regained the weight you lost?
- Did you ever eat food
just because it was there?
- Did you ever eat because
you were sad or lonely?
- Did someone ever give
you a candy or food because you were good as a child?
- Did you ever eat to
a point were you felt physical discomfort from being so full?
- Did you ever take
a new year resolution about losing weight and the next year took it
again (this time meaning it)?
- Did you ever wonder
how chip companies know exactly the amount of chips to put in a bag
because most of the time we empty it?
- Are you now wondering
how chip companies knew our appetite for chips would increase and thus
created the "Mega bags" because most of the time we empty
the idea. You see, we have been programmed to eat for many unnatural reasons
in our life and we tend to have parted from this wonderful, natural internal
gauge we have, called "hunger."
Do not despair
though, your natural signals are still there. They just need to be awakened.
Hypnosis can help you in this. Of course, good eating habits need to be
coupled with regular physical activities, we all know this.
recent use of hypnosis for weight loss was the "dateline
weight loss challenge." Hypnosis
was one of the methods used and here is the result: "In fifth place,
our ladies man under hypnosis, Marc Merlis, also tipped the scales at
210. His total loss was 35 pounds, yet 15 pounds short of his goal."
in the guidelines for selecting a weight loss program and maintenance,
the American Heart association states as a fifth condition "behavior
you should always consult your physician first. This goes without saying.
