Weight loss has been a popular if not sensitive topic over the recent years, gaining people’s attention and eliciting a lot of debate. What is described as fat varies from culture to culture and region to region. Everybody however, agrees that after a certain point you will need to lose some weight. There are a lot of choices out there to help you on this but hypnosis is a rather unorthodox way. With all the stories going around regarding hypnosis it’s no wonder that such an old idea is still considered novel by a lot of people.
Is it any good?
Hypnosis has however been received by the medical community as a legitimate tool for health improvement and as a way to help people break away from unhealthy habits or addictions. It is impossible at this point not to mention the success of hypnosis in getting smokers to quit. It is with the same technique that can get you to lose weight. Its effectiveness is said to be three times that of getting smokers to quit. These success rates have staying power. This form of weight loss treatment has been around since the 1980s. In fact the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology cites five studies that showed high rates of success.
That being said, it should be known that hypnosis will deal with the cause of weight gain as opposed to burning the fat in your body. This means that you will not magically turn slim after a hypnosis session, rather the triggers that make you indulge are going to be turned off are at the very least have a reduced effect on you. It will therefore be easier to pick up healthier alternatives to food and adapt to a healthier lifestyle overall.
Why is it good then?
Weight loss through hypnosis has been tried and tested with great results. Making the choice to go for this type of treatment is not considered a gamble or a nothing-to-lose type of last resort alternative. It approaches the weight problem in a different way. Perhaps even a better way when compared to the other types. This is because while the rest choose to treat the symptoms which in this case is excess flab, hypnosis gets to deal with what got you there in the first place. Ensuring that while you lose weight, you do not default back. If anything it complements the diets and exercise regimen that has always been put on focus as the only way to lose weight.
