Why Hypnosis Works for Weight Loss
By Roger Elliott
Drive down almost any road in America and what do you see? A number of different places to stop and get gas, some businesses, and likely more than a handful of fast food restaurants. The fast food business is booming due to the simple fact that people no longer have the time to sit down and have a meal together. We struggle and fight every day to make enough money to pay our bills, and by the time we're done doing that, along with all of life's other errands, we find that we do not have the desire nor the time to cook a delicious meal for our family. This can make us gain weight very quickly, especially when we are eating for a reason other than because we don't have the time to cook a home-cooked meal.
Other Reasons We Eat
Alright, so you've stopped at a fast food restaurant to get something to eat, but instead of ordering a small salad and a bottle of water, you order a double-decker cheeseburger, large fries, and an extra large soft drink. The drink, you figure, will last you for awhile, but before you get home, you find that it is halfway gone. The next thing you know you've eaten all of your food and are suddenly hungry for more.
Why do we overeat like this? There are a number of different reasons. Every person has their own reason for eating more food than they need to survive, including:
- Attention seeking - some people have a difficult time being alone, or not being noticed, and may find themselves eating more food because they feel as though they do not have as much attention as they need.
- Security - security is a difficult thing to come by, and when you're insecure, no matter whether it's about your job or your love life, you may find yourself overeating.
- Control - we can't control everything in our lives, no matter how much we want to be able to. If you find that you are in a number of situations that you can't control, you may discover yourself eating more and more.
- Love - there's a reason that love is one of the most sung about and written about topics on the planet - it is all encompassing. It doesn't matter whether you're searching for love or are trying to avoid losing your love, a change in your relationship status (or wishing for one) can cause you to overeat quite often.
What to do
If you're like most people, you've probably been told that you should lose a bit of weight, but how? How do you treat almost anything? By starting at the root of the problem. Hypnosis works to deal with the underlying issues that are at hand, instead of just trying to get you to eat fewer carbs or to exercise more. Hypnosis actually treats the problem that is causing the problem, which gives you a greater chance of losing weight and feeling better about yourself overall, as well. Unlike many diets, hypnosis works to help almost everyone eat less and feel better, because it treats the individual problem, no matter what it may happen to be.
