When people choose to do weight loss hypnosis, there are many myths and misconceptions that must be overcome right from the beginning. One of the most important is a concept that roller coaster dieting creates; it is the belief that there are "bad" or "forbidden" foods that should be avoided at all costs. During hypnosis weight loss, clients relearn an appropriate way to view food. The reality is that food is food. If eaten in a balanced way with fat, fiber and protein, your body will regulate its weight and give you plenty of energy. When you label food as "bad" or "forbidden" or as "cheat foods," you are setting yourself up for feelings of guilt and deprivation, feelings that later drop you to the low point of the roller coaster where cravings and food bingeing happen. Several of the Positive Changes Hypnosis Centers weight loss self hypnosis programs are designed to help you make peace with food so that it no longer controls you.
Another important issue that comes up in the hypnotic weight loss process is improper motivation. This is especially true for women who want to lose weight in the hope of looking good for their other half. They believe that if their partner is happier, they will, in turn, be happier as well. It is unfortunate that so many riders on the weight loss roller coaster are trying to lose weight to look good for someone else. This is a no-win situation. If you are not successful, it creates negative feelings toward the person you were trying to please. If you succeed, it will probably be temporary because you didn't do it for yourself and, chances are, you will resent the other person for not appreciating your success. This is the reason that a hypnosis weight loss program works to heal the self-image.
Your self-image is the blueprint your mind uses to build your body. Without the proper blueprint, even a master builder will struggle. At Positive Changes Hypnosis Centers, the nation's only hypnosis franchise, a weight loss hypnotist strives to help his or her client change the inner blueprint from a fat mind to a naturally thin mind with hypnosis. If you try to change this from the outside in, you are fighting an uphill battle. On the weight loss roller coaster, when you become thin outside and still posses a fat mind, you live in fear every day that the weight is going to come back. Then, as Job once said, "What I have feared greatly has come upon me." With hypnosis weight loss, you can focus on the solution and then all of the unseen forces of the mind will go to work solving the problems of the past by producing results in the present and future.
When riding the weight loss roller coaster, most people start to have moments of fantasy believing that once the weight is shed, they will be a different person-one who is happier, luckier, or sought after by others. The truth is that you already are a different person! There is no one else like you in all creation. Abe Lincoln said it best, "People are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." Hypnotic weight loss puts you back in control of your own mind. It has been said that all unhappiness stems from unfavorable comparisons. It is time to get off the roller coaster and stop looking outside yourself for the person you wish to be. Tune your subconscious with the help of hypnosis for weight loss, and you can become the best you possible!
