Hypnosis for Weight Loss: Does it Really Work?

Hypnosis for Weight Loss: Does it Really Work?

Hypnosis for weight loss is one of the most popular issues that Joymind works with. This is because the topic of weight has always, and will always be, an area of great scrutiny as it pertains to the media’s standards of beauty versus what looks good and feels good to us. Sadly, this can look like two different things entirely, leading many of us down a path of self-loathing and unhealthy coping mechanisms. 

The reality is, healthy weight varies from person to person and is based on a multitude of factors that range from body composition to our genetics, so what may be considered healthy weight for one person may not be true for the other. Nonetheless, surpassing the weight which is considered ideal for us leads to an increased risk of chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes as well as cardiovascular, respiratory and digestive complications. Not to mention, feeling like we “look” heavy can negatively impact our mental and emotional well-being. But despite these understandings, one universal truth remains – losing weight and keeping it off long-term can be quite the challenge, as yo-yo dieting and numerous failed attempts discourage us. 

Hypnotherapy can help us address emotional and behavioral factors contributing to weight gain, because ultimately, that’s where the root of the problem lies. They don’t call it “emotional eating” for nothin’! We reach for food when we are stressed for a reason. We eat way more than we should for a reason. We self-soothe with processed foods for a reason. And those reasons lie within the subconscious mind, unbeknownst to us. That’s where hypnosis for weight loss comes in. It’s the job of our hypnotherapist to help us identify our triggers. Why is it that we turn to food in times of great distress? Why do we eat more than we should? Why is it so hard to approach our diet with a dose of healthy moderation? Why do we reach for the unhealthy thing over the healthy thing when we know better? And why does food often feel like our only friend? These are the questions that are answered in hypnosis, and it is within the answers that the real solutions exist. 

Ultimately, our weight loss journey will only be successful if we make healthier lifestyle choices, improve our self-image, and increase our motivation. Hypnosis is all about peeling back the layers of the onion and planting new seeds which lead to better outcomes and behaviors in order to make these changes possible. Hypnosis is powerful in that it can help us change our old, unproductive mindsets regarding food and exercise in order to help us manage our weight loss in the long-term. With consistent practice of hypnotherapy, we typically see a shift in our eating habits, feel an increased motivation to exercise, and form a much healthier relationship with our bodies, resulting in sustainable weight loss. There are no short cuts, but hypnosis can help us get there.
