Has losing weight and maintaining that weight loss become a life long struggle for you? Has the frustration and desire to be slimmer resulted in you embarking on years of soul destroying yo-yo dieting and cycles of over eating followed by feelings of guilt and self-loathing? If you have, then you may already realise that one of the consequences of yo-yo dieting and erratic eating plans is a lowered metabolic rate, which in turn makes it even harder for you to lose weight in the future, which is demoralising and demotivating. Undoubtedly there is no substitute for a healthy and varied diet, complemented by regular exercise, but why do so many of us struggle to either maintain that healthy living plan or indeed lose those extra pounds when we do?

Although we all recognise we have strong food cravings, which unfortunately tend to be for sugar or fat laden foods, and equally strong repulsions towards other foods, we rarely associate losing weight itself as a mind-body balancing act. There can be numerous reasons why you as an individual may struggle to lose weight. It may be that years of unsuccessful dieting have eroded the belief that you can do it, replacing it with an inherent belief that you will fail no matter. Alternatively, there may be more complex reasons, which result in you developing an unconscious decision to hold on to weight or you may be using food as an emotional prop to help you get through difficult times.

Hypnotherapy can help get you out of that diet-binge cycle and on the road to a slimmer, fitter, healthier new you. Using powerful suggestion techniques aimed at your unconscious mind hypnotherapy is able to unlock the deep rooted belief patterns and emotional link you have to eating and help you develop a positive relationship with food and exercise. The aim of hypnotherapy is to change how you feel about eating and to build confidence in both your body and you as a person. By eliminating any negative thoughts you have about eating and exercise you will be able to lose weight responsibly without impacting your emotional well-being.

Make the decision today that will change your whole approach to weight loss and find out what hypnotherapy can do for you.
