I probably do more weight loss sessions than any other issue, and it seems that most of these clients are coming in by referral. Clients are coming in and saying “Do to me what you did to my Mum, Dad or Brother, etc.”
The reason most people fail at weight loss is that the approach that they use is just too simplistic. Dieting alone will end in failure for most people. How you eat and how it affects your body weight depends on many factors. For example:
- Family training
- Mood and emotions
- Quality of your diet
- Sensitivity to different foods
- Knowledge about food
- Exercise level
- Genetic predisposition
Programs that do not take a number of these factors into consideration are going to have only limited success. Limited in either the amount of weight you lose or how long you can keep it off.
Hypnosis or hypnotherapy (done right) affects subconscious factors such as family training, mood/emotions, habits and exercise level. Diet programs alone are unable to do this. Even diet programs that include exercise programs are not going to work for most people in the long run.
Most people who come to me have tried diets and have failed. They have tried exercise programs too, and have also failed. This is both good and bad. It is bad because clients will come to me feeling frustrated because of past failures. The good news is that I don’t have to educate them on how they should eat and exercise to lose weight. All we have to do is remove the subconscious programming that is getting in the way of their success.
