Hypnosis - a jump start to start losing weight!!!

It was not long ago when I was 10kgs overweight. Years of poor diet, lack of exercise, increased stress levels and constant excuses for being time poor had added rings of at around my mid-section. The feeling of being overweight constantly weighed on my mind. I lost my self-confidence and resorted to comfort eating to get over my depressed emotions on how I looked which further aggravated my situation. This affected not only my confidence of not looking good, but affected many other areas of my life. I felt diffident in job interviews, diffident in meeting and making connections with people, I reduced my social life, would wear loose ugly looking clothes to hide my gut making me look even worse and so on and so forth. Many of you may be very familiar with what I am talking about.

Since then, I have managed to reduce about 7kgs in 7 weeks and it is due to a combination of mindset shift, food habits, exercise and most importantly I needed a trigger to get on this journey. More like a jump start and I got this from a very good therapist. If you are keen to understand this more, then read on.

Weight loss is a journey involving a multiplicity of elements, including diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes. However, one facet that often goes unnoticed is the psychological component of weight loss. In the current era of wellness and mindfulness, strategic psychotherapy and hypnosis are emerging as revolutionary methodologies to facilitate weight loss.

Strategic Psychotherapy and Weight Loss:

Strategic psychotherapy is a type of psychotherapy that aims to help individuals change specific, identified behaviors. It’s highly solution-oriented, helping individuals to uncover and change their unhealthy eating habits and lifestyle choices. The first step involves identifying destructive patterns and thoughts that lead to weight gain, and subsequently developing healthier coping mechanisms.

Critical Considerations for Hypnosis:

Hypnosis and psychotherapy form a very effective combination to achieve weight loss. There are 2 kinds of hypnosis: Traditional and Strategic and both have proven quite effective in this area. However, when contemplating hypnosis for weight loss, it's crucial to realize that it is not a magic wand. It is most effective for individuals who are highly motivated to change and have a genuine desire to control their eating habits. It may not be the best option for those looking for a quick fix without addressing the underlying issues related to their eating behaviors.

In addition, people with severe mental health disorders or certain cognitive impairments may not be suitable candidates for hypnosis, and medical consultation is always recommended before embarking on such a journey.

Virtual Gastric Banding – A Novel Approach:

One of the fascinating breakthroughs in weight loss hypnosis is Virtual Gastric Banding (VGB). This technique uses the power of hypnosis to convince the mind that the stomach is smaller than its actual size, which helps in reducing food intake. It does not involve any surgery or medication, making it a safer alternative for many individuals struggling with obesity.

Virtual Gastric Banding:

  1. Non-Invasive: There is no surgical procedure involved, reducing risks and recovery time.

  2. Behavioral Change: It helps in modifying eating behaviors, leading to a long-term solution for weight management.

  3. Cost-Effective: Compared to surgical options, it is relatively less expensive.

When to Consider Hypnosis for Weight Loss?

If you find yourself trapped in a cycle of yo-yo dieting, emotional eating, or have tried multiple weight loss programs with no success, hypnosis can be a potential game-changer for you. It is especially relevant if you are motivated to address the psychological barriers preventing you from maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
