Eating Regularly Scheduled Meals Just Makes Sense

Eating regularly scheduled meals just makes sense. Developing a routine of eating three meals and two snacks each day is a good idea for a variety of reasons. Hypnosis can help you to establish an eating routine, and maintain it long-term.

If your goal is to lose weight, it just makes sense to develop a “habit” of eating on a regular schedule. Most of us are familiar with what happens when we don’t eat enough and our bodies go into starvation mode. It stands to reason that eating three meals and two snacks each day will keep us from getting too hungry, and bingeing on foods that are not good for us.

But did you know that if you include protein in each of those three meals and two snacks you can stabilize your blood sugar and minimize, or eliminate, unnecessary cravings? It’s true! In addition, developing the habit of eating healthy nutritious foods in the just the right amounts, at just the right times all through the day, can also improve your mood.

The types of food we eat, along with the amounts have an effect on our outlook. According to this article there is a strong connection between negative moods and disordered eating habits. It makes sense that if you put junk in your body that you’re not going to feel well. However, I think the psychological effects of unhealthy eating are just as responsible for the negative moods as the chemicals in the food.

When you are not in control of your eating habits and you have a weak moment of binge eating you just feel rotten. You feel frustrated, angry, hopeless, and out of control. Many of my weight loss clients have experienced this level of negativity in relation to their eating patterns. Hypnosis is a very effective way to develop the habit of eating regularly scheduled meals and snacks. Control your hunger, and your mood, and let hypnosis show you the way!

Self-Hypnosis is Easy and Fun!

You may be interested to know that we all experience self-hypnosis several times each day. Wouldn’t it be nice to be aware of the ways in which you are hypnotizing yourself, so that you can deliberately choose which habits and behaviors are running the show? Learning how to use self-hypnosis deliberately can do just that!

When we talk about hypnosis, we’re talking about the co-mingling of the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind, as if there are two minds. Well of course there is only one mind, and so it’s more accurate to speak of conscious processes and sub-conscious processes. A conscious process is something you do, or think about, consciously. Conversely, a sub-conscious process is something you do automatically, kind of like being on autopilot. Hypnosis is a process of bringing the two together so that you’re in charge of those automatic behaviors. » Read the rest of this entry «

Emotional vs Physical Hunger

With the holidays and the New Year drawing near, I want to spend some time talking about weight loss. It is one of the most common reasons people seek help from a hypnotherapist, and one of the many behavior changes possible with the use of hypnosis.

The majority of my weight loss clients are able to achieve success after 3 to 4 sessions. On occasion, more or less sessions are required. One of the most important conversations I have with clients has to do with the exploration of why they eat. There is a big difference between emotional hunger and physical hunger. » Read the rest of this entry «

Hypnosis for Weight Loss

Weight Control

If you have problems controlling your weight, chances are you have tried a variety of diets, pills, and other methods to reduce your weight. Some of these work, some don’t. Overeating is a personal and individual condition. You don’t overeat for exactly the same reasons someone else does.

Permanent weight loss can happen. It happens through nutritional awareness, long-term physical fitness and exercise, altering emotional ties with eating and changing poor eating habits into healthy ones.

Hypnosis CAN help you to achieve these goals, but make no mistake: YOU make the changes in yourself. I am more than happy to show you how easy it can be to achieve your body image goals through the use of hypnosis. Yes, you can do it!
