The Weighting is Over
Okay, now that we've got your attention, let's address a few reasons that might not have occurred to you when it comes to maintaining your desired body weight. We will then get into a bit more detail on each one.
You may not be enjoying your food. Yes, that is very possible. This may be the biggest (pun intended) help that we may be of to you. We want you to enjoy what you eat. Every bite of your food. Every moment of the meal. When you are consciously aware of every bite, you have the opportunity to really enjoy the experience. How can this lead to weight loss? Most people that overeat aren't even aware that they are overeating. This is called Mindless Eating. Many times people don't enjoy eating because they are not even aware of what they are "shoveling" in their mouths. They may be mindlessly eating when watching TV, driving in the car, or on the telephone. Think about it. Have you watched a TV program, and then asked yourself, "Did I really just eat a whole bag of potato chips?"
Someone else does the cooking. Hmmm, cooking sounds like a hassle. "When's dinner going to be ready?", you may be asking someone. Food preparation is a great exercise (there's the "E" word again) in becoming aware of your food. Besides, we want you to enjoy your food, and cooking a meal can be a gift to yourself and your loved ones.
Someone else does the shopping. Yes, it's a lot quicker to call in a takeout order compared to getting in the car, etc., but once you start to enjoy cooking this will be fun. In fact, try going to the store and buy the food for just one special meal that you will be preparing. You'll be surprised by the results.
You only eat twice a day. If you took the same amount of calories and spread them out over 3-4 meals, your body would burn off significantly more calories. This is because your body will slow down the "calorie burn rate" when you skip a meal.
One of the many ways that Hypnotherapy can help you release the unwanted weight is to help you stop the mindless eating that you may have difficulty with. We want you to think about your food and enjoy it. Furthermore, you may also have subconscious triggers that "remind" you to eat when you're not even hungry.
