Lose Weight Hypnosis

 

Get and Stay Healthy Fit and Trim

Don’t need more knowledge

You probably don’t need to be told what to do to be healthy, fit and trim, i.e., what to eat, when to eat how much to eat and how much to exercise… you maybe could write the book! So, the question is: How do you get yourself to behave consistent with what you already know?

 

Most clients who come if for hypnotherapy to lose weight and to get fit have been on an eating plan and exercise program that have worked to some degree but for one reason or another they fall off the wagon (some were successful for years others for a week).

So, it is not a question to know what to do but rather a question of staying motivated and enthusiastic about doing it and then continue to do what you already know. Once the new behavior becomes a habit then it is easy to stick to.

If you choose to come in and use hypnotherapy to help you take charge of your eating and exercise behavior to be healthy, fit and trim, bring with you an eating plan that you think would be the right one for you (It can be an advertised weight loss plan or one you come up with yourself), and I’ll help you make it stick!

 

Hypnotherapy helps you break old habits and establish new ones


Wrong eating and putting off exercise are just habits.

With my approach to hypnotherapy I help my clients break old habits and establish new ones that are in harmony with their being healthy fit and trim.

A habit is a behavior that is triggered by some stimuli… a habit is classical conditioning: Pavlov rings the bell and his dogs salivate. (See the footnote about Pavlov)

Here are a few stimuli that clients have told me that motivate wrong eating:

  • Stressed-out (Pavlov’s bell) you feel like you need to eat (salivate)
  • Walk in the door after work (Pavlov’s bell) you march to the fridge (salivate)
  • Something good happens (Pavlov’s bell) you feel like you need to celebrate with food and drink (salivate)
  • Sit down to watch TV… break out the chips
  • Have a drink… feels like you need something to eat with it
  • Lonely… feel like food is your best friend and it will comfort you
  • Being alone (no one there to see you munch) … sneak a bag of Nachos
  • Driving… feel like you need something else to do
  • A Holiday… there is seldom a holiday or celebration that is not centered around food and drink.
  • Weekend… need to relax by eating and having a drink or two

If you will pay close attention to when you do most of your wrong eating, I believe you will discover it is triggered by an external stimulus. Most of wrong eating is not engaged in because of being hungry, it is engaged in because it has become a habit, a conditioned behavior (Pavlov rings his bell and you salivate).

With my approach to hypnotherapy I help my clients break old habits (disassociate the stimuli with the old behavior) and establish new ones that are in harmony with being healthy fit and trim by changing their self-perceptions.

Footnote: Pavlov

Pavlov was a physiologist, not a psychologist, who did a study on digestive processes.


He resolved that the first step in digestion was salivating. So, he set up an experiment by using dogs to determine how much they salivated when presented with food.

In order to make this measurement he could not make it after his dogs chewed or digested food. He resolved this problem by strapping his dogs in a cage that would keep them from moving their heads with a collection dish under their muzzles to collect their droolings (saliva). He then would spray meat powder near their nostrils (a dog’s natural instinct is to salivate when it smells food). The amount of saliva was collected and easily measured.

Then one day he noticed when the door opened where he kept the dog food his dogs began to salivate. The dogs could not smell the food or see the food but when the food door opened, they began drooling!

So he set up this experiment: He would spray meat powder and when they started to salivate he would ring a bell. After repeatedly doing this over time the sound of the bell became associated with salivating. Once the stimulus of the bell became paired with salivation all he would need to do is ring the bell and they would salivate even in the absence of meet powder or food. In psychology this is called classical conditioning—a conditioned response to some stimuli. In real life we call a habit.
