Lose Weight Fast! Try the Mediterranean Diet and NLP
By Alan B. Densky
If you want the body of a Greek god or goddess, you do not have to hurl thunderbolts or battle one-eyed monsters - simply eating like the ancient idols could help you get a physique that people will worship. The Mediterranean way of eating, which is a diet meal plan that includes plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, olive oil, whole grains and red wine, can help you achieve the best figure. The Mediterranean weight loss diet has also been linked to a healthier heart and a longer life span. Red meat, fatty dairy products and foods with refined sugar are rarely consumed, if ever.
Centuries after the physically powerful gods shook things up, the Mediterranean style of eating still makes great sense as a weight loss meal plan because you get full on large amounts of high-fiber, low fat foods that leave you feeling sated for much longer. The fruits and vegetables eaten as part of the Mediterranean way of eating are naturally low in calories, and are rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, nutrients your body requires to create new and healthy cells.
The Mediterranean way of eating allows a higher fat intake than most weight loss diets, but it's healthy fat that comes from nuts and olive oil, which are rich in beneficial monounsaturated fats, and low in unhealthy saturated fats, like those found in cheese, ice-cream or beef.
Just keep in mind that for higher calorie items, like the whole grains, olive oil and red wine, you still must focus on overall calorie intake and serving sizes. The key to any successful weight loss plan is consuming fewer calories while still feeling full. When you feel full, it makes it a little easier to overcome cravings that many people who are trying to follow a weight loss diet endure. What good is a diet if you cannot adhere to it because your appetite is out of control? Before starting any weight loss meal plan, you'll need to find a safe, effective way to eliminate your urges, cravings and appetite to overeat. Weight loss hypnotherapy is a wonderful way to help you curb your cravings.
The typical person experiences cravings and an urge to eat for two central reasons:
You have actually "programmed" your unconscious mind to make you feel cravings and urges as a "conditioned response" to watching television. The same thing happens when you eat in your car or while on the phone, etc. Appropriate hypnotherapy will erase the conditioned responses simply by reprogramming your unconscious mind to have it trigger unconscious images of you watching the television without eating, and that will eliminate the urge to eat. It will also give you an urge to reject food in that scenario!
But what about Part "B"? Our sensations of stress are created by our thoughts. If you think negative thoughts, you feel tense and upset. If you think happy thoughts, you feel calm and relaxed. If you have an upsetting thought while you are sitting at your computer, your mind can link that thought with the computer. Thereafter, when you sit at your computer, you have a conditioned response; your mind will flash to that negative thought and you will feel tension. Weight loss self-hypnosis techniques can help you overcome these patterns almost immediately.
The techniques used in the most successful hypnotherapy programs are based on Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). This technology works based on the utilization of a person's existing thought processes instead of post-hypnotic suggestion.
Video weight loss hypnosis can program your subconscious mind to use stressful thoughts as a trigger for soothing thoughts. So if you start to think of something that is distressing, your unconscious mind will automatically change to a relaxing thought in a millisecond. You become relaxed, so there are no sensations of tension to produce your cravings. And without an appetite to overeat, it's much easier to lose weight and keep it off forever. Combining a sensible weight loss meal plan, like the Mediterranean style, along with self hypnosis means you can finally beat your cravings to get the body of a Greek god or goddess.
