Why diets alone do not work

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:59 pm by hypnosiscenterofva

If you’ve ever tried to lose weight, you know how hard it is. Many of us have tried every new diet out there and maybe lost a few pounds in the beginning but eventually end up gaining it back. Why? Because

Diets don’t address the reason you are overeating to begin with. 

The number one reason for overeating is STRESS! Stress creates cravings of sugar, salt or carbohydrates and we all know that carbs turn to fat quicker than protein. Another reason we over eat is due to our emotions. We eat because we are bored, sad or lonely. Food is a way to change these emotions so that we can feel comfort, satisfied, and it temporarily takes away that empty feeling in our life. Food and weight gain can also provide a sense of safety and security by keeping relationships at a distance or it can be a “reward” or a treat to ourselves. Think of how many celebrations that we attend are focused around food. 

There are many more reasons for overeating and gain weight and for each person the reasons are unique, but the key is the same. Adding hypnosis can increase your success and help you keep the weight off.  

How? Using our hypnosis weight loss program we start with helping you change your perception about food and exercise. Food is no longer just a reward or a comfort and exercise becomes a way of life. We provide you with techniques to help manage your daily stress. We also provide valuable information regarding proper nutrition and help you uncover and let go of the underlying reasons that you overeat. 

Our program is not a quick fix but it will help you to make lasting changes in the way you treat yourself. Love yourself and your body enough to make a decision to be healthy and you be rewarded with lasting good health and maintaining your optimum weight. 

Weight loss affirmation: 

“I am at peace with my own feelings. I am safe where I am. I create my own security. I love and approve of myself.”  Louise Hay
