Losing weight naturally is made easier by understanding how weight loss through hypnosis works. There's no doubt that using self hypnosis techniques represent some of the best ways to lose weight, as evidenced by many research programs and surveys around the world which have demonstrated that weight loss through hypnosis is highly effective in bringing about and maintaining weight loss in motivated volunteers. Things like overcoming bad habits can be easy or difficult, successful or unsuccessful, depending on the method you use to achieve your aim.
Willpower alone is unlikely to produce long term success with regard to a habit of compulsive overeating. Let's imagine you're in a supermarket and you come across cakes, candy or whatever and you're gripped by the urge to grab them, but firmly resist.
Let's say you've made a promise to yourself that you're going to lose weight and you know that if you buy the tempting food it's but one short step away from defeat and betrayal of your promise to yourself, so you dig out more reserves of willpower and force yourself to walk past the temptation.
Nevertheless, thoughts, memories, images of those cakes or chocolates keep sneaking into your conscious mind. The thought of the taste of them has got you practically salivating and then it's as if something gives way in your mind and you find yourself thinking of all the "rational" reasons as to why you in fact should go and buy that tempting food.
Your desire for not only the taste of but also the subtle emotional high represented by the food is beginning to outdo your desire to lose weight.
Finally, if not today or the next day, but soon, your willpower deserts you completely and you give in. However, your eager anticipation and the pleasure derived from eating the forbidden food is swiftly replaced by a sense of guilt and remorse because of the failure of your willpower to maintain its defense against the temptation, and now your dream of slimming down and getting comfortably into those good looking clothes has been, well, postponed. After a few weeks or so, during which time you may have actually gained more weight, you resolve once again to lose weight, and so the cycle goes on.
Let's take a look at what's happening here, and why weight loss through hypnosis is more readily achievable than by grimly clinging on to your last shred of willpower. If you're constantly thinking that you want sweet or junk food, and that it's going to be impossible or at least very hard to permanently deny yourself the indulgence, then it's almost certain that you'll never lose weight permanently and reap the benefits of being the slimmer, healthier and fitter version of yourself that you want to be.
The first thing you need to do in preparation for weight loss through hypnosis is to establish, consciously, in your mind whether or not you actually really want to lose weight. If you come to a definite conclusion that the answer is yes, then you've planted the seed of a realization that you strongly desire to lose weight, and this strong desire to lose weight is the catalyst through which you will achieve weight loss through hypnosis and also begin to realise that it's going to be much easier than you might have thought.
There could be any number of reasons why someone would develop the mental habit of seeing food as a respite, but the fact is that whatever the reason for emotional overeating may be the mental habit that causes it can be eliminated.
The key phrase to note in the above paragraph is "mental habit". If you eat too much and are overweight it's not because you need to or even really want to overeat, it's simply because your conscious mind is always telling you that you "need" or "want" to overeat. The good news is that with self hypnosis for weight loss it's not actually difficult to change that mental habit even though right now you may feel that it would be next to impossible to do so on a long term basis.
Your subconscious mind will manifest as an actual physical reality in your life whatever thoughts and images your conscious mind is constantly impressing upon it. If you're always consciously thinking that you need to or want to overeat and that it would be incredibly difficult to break the habit for good, then your all powerful subconscious will work to create and sustain that very situation.
Your subconscious does not discriminate between what is "positive" or "negative". It takes what it gets from your conscious mind and attracts into your life whatever reality and conditions suggested by the conscious mind. To put it simply, if you think success, your subconscious will ensure that you succeed, if you think failure, it will ensure that you fail. Likewise with weight loss through hypnosis. If you train your conscious mind to consistently send to your subconscious thoughts and images of yourself as a slim, healthy and attractive person, that is what you will most surely become, and your excessive desire for sweet and junk food will disappear. This is how weight loss through hypnosis - via the "reprogramming" of the subconscious - is achieved, and much more easily than you might think.
Self imposed diet regimes often fail because not only has the dieter not taken into account the all important need to get the subconscious positively attuned toward the fulfillment of their aim, but also because of a lack of knowledge of some of the simple and practical steps that can be taken to help to lessen food cravings.
Understanding some of the facts about sugar, particularly refined white sugar and its tendency to become psychologically habit forming, can give a real boost to your motivation to succeed in your drive to lose weight.
Compulsive and deeply ingrained habitual behavior can give the impression of being almost impossible to overcome for any significant length of time, leaving you feeling that you're stuck with it for life. Not so, you have the power within yourself to break any habit or compulsion and leave it behind you, permanently.
Being depressed and seeking respite through comfort food sometimes goes hand in hand. To break the cycle you need to get to and deal with the root cause of the depression first.
If you have a serious binge eating problem, you first need to consult a medical health professional. Thereafter, combine their advice with knowledge of the facts and self hypnosis and you WILL overcome it.
A selection of quotes relating to food and losing weight which will help to strengthen your desire to succeed in your aim of creating for yourself - and others - the body that you want.
The daily use of an affirmation for weight loss will, if it has focus and desire behind it, result in a positive change in the way that you see and relate to food, with weight loss itself being the outcome.
With regard to achieving weight loss through hypnosis there are two main strategies involved, and you can employ one or the other or both. The daily use of a weight loss related affirmation combined with creative visualization, if carried out under the right conditions of relaxation and if you're determined and prepared to be persistent, will eventually produce the desired result.
The other method of weight loss through hypnosis would involve for perhaps a couple of weeks a daily and/or nightly session of listening to one of the weight loss themed hypnosis downloads. This is for many people an easier way of achieving weight loss through hypnosis because the suggestions and images working into your subconscious are coming from outside and so it's easier to just relax and let them sink in and do their work, which is to create and deeply embed a permanent change in the way you subconsciously relate to food, through which you will benefit from the gradual weight loss you soon begin to experience.
