Ketogenic. Paleo. Weight Watchers. Atkins. Jenny Craig. The list goes on and on. Many people use a commercial weight loss plan to assist them in their efforts to get to a healthier size and shape. Is hypnosis compatible if you are using one of the popular diet programs?
Most of these plans are effective when persisted with. At a conscious level of mind they provide guidance on food selection as to quality and quantity. However, the data tells us that long term compliance is uncommon and that most people will relapse into their previous habits. Your subconscious mind runs your habit patterns and none of the diet plans I am aware of address that.
A curious fact about the subconscious mind is that it resists changing habits, even when they are harmful. Some speculate this comes from our evolutionary heritage; the more primitive part of the mind figures you made this far doing what you have been doing, so don't change it.
Hypnosis can enable you to make changes at a much deeper level of mind than simply being told to eat this, don't eat that. Some of the benefits of adding hypnosis to your weight loss program includes:
-Make desired habit changes feel permanent and natural
-Address negative past experiences or mental blocks that may be holding you back.
-Learn how to reduce stress naturally.
-Get the placebo effect to work for you; your body responds to what you are thinking.

P.S. A massive public health study, the National Weight Control Registry, studied people who were successful at maintaining long term weight loss. About half used a commercial weight loss plan and the other half didn't. You can succeed either way.
P.S.S. I offer classes on Effective Weight Loss Strategies, its a great way to see if hypnosis is right for you. Visit the Upcoming Events page to learn more.
