Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body. It is usually of plant or animal origin, and contains essential nutrients, such as fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. The substance is ingested by an organism and assimilated by the organism’s cells to provide energy, maintain life, or stimulate growth.
How can hypnosis help me to lose weight?
Excess weight is a curse of modern times. The human body is both brilliant and adaptive. However, nothing in our evolution prepared it to deal with the quantity of food that is now available to us. The body is better prepared to deal with a lack of food. Studies have shown that various animals and humans live longer, healthier lives when they are fed lightly.
In the face of plenty it it is a common instinct to overeat. We have taken this tendency to an extreme and have become a culture addicted to excess.
Hypnosis is a proven way to change habits.
At PHC the hypnosis process for weight loss can help you change unhealthy patterns of eating. We will work with you to help form a pattern of eating that works for you. Hypnosis is not magic, you need to be determined and ready to make important dietary changes. We can then help you establish healthy patterns and follow through with forming a new approach to food.
After deciding how you want to approach your changes, you will be guided through the hypnosis process. In this cooperative state, you receive suggestions customized for you. You only need to follow instructions to make the changes that you came in to make.
Here is how it works. There are two main factors that contribute to weight gain:
1. Eating too much, or eating the wrong kinds of foods, habits that can be picked up as early as childhood (though often later). These unwanted habits are difficult to change on your own. Hypnosis makes it much easier.
2. The overlap of food and emotions. Most of our clients are very aware of the connection between food and emotions. Many people eat when they are bored, nervous or lonely. Some eat because of stress. Others are emotional eaters and don’t even know it. Our approach offers you a process that helps develop control over your habits. You can tame emotional eating, and positively change your relationship with food.
Our work is designed to help you overcome any patterns of eating that are related to stress or emotion. This process will reduce the desire to eat when you are not truly hungry. Understanding these factors improves your ability to control the quantity and quality of the food you eat.
Self-hypnosis can also help assure lasting results
Our primary goal is to help you achieve lasting change. .During the hypnosis sessions, you will gain additional insight into your eating patterns and how to create more healthy new patterns. As part of this process you will have the opportunity to learn self-hypnosis, a powerful aid to ongoing self-improvement.
Will I have to be on a highly restrictive diet?
Each client is different in this respect. It depends on many factors such as: how much weight you want to lose, how quickly you want to lose it and whether or not exercise is part of your effort.
Many hypnosis clients report that they did not have to restrict the foods they ate to reach their weight loss goal, they simply ate more carefully. Others lost most of the weight this way, and then used a diet to get off the last few pounds.
There are also those individuals who may need to follow a formal diet while they are using hypnosis to lose all the weight they want to lose. The primary benefit of hypnosis is that it makes it easier to eat in a more careful and balanced manner. You will have the choice to determine the eating pattern that will most benefit you.
