COVID WEIGHT LOSS THROUGH HYPNOTHERAPY
As Covid restrictions continue or ease depending where you are, have you found yourself with a #lockdownbody?
Have you managed to acquire #quarantine7 (the average kilos taken on during lockdown)?
Or have you always struggled with weight throughout your life, after having kids, following menopause or as you become older?
I have no doubt that you will have tried every diet under the sun, every passing fad and each celebrity-endorsed product!! This is nothing to be ashamed of – most people have been on a diet at some point because they are marketed to us in such a way as to appear to be the ‘next best thing’.
However, as you will have found, NONE of them work long term. This is because whilst they might help us to loose weight at first, they are restrictive (eg fasting on Tuesdays, no food after 7pm, no carbs etc) and do not reflect real life.
This is not to say you should throw your hands in the air and give up however!! The exact opposite in fact because everyone knows the detrimental affects of excess weight. It hits in so many places:
• Mental wellbeing
To achieve real long term freedom from poor nutritional habits and excess weight requires CHANGE. This doesn’t mean change by way of committing to eating 5kg of kale every day or signing up for a marathon. It means making change within three of our key relationships:
- Our relationship with food (obviously)
- Our relationship with movement (it should be joyful!!)
- Our relationship with self
Covid weight loss can be acheived through hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy for weight loss (covid related or not!!) covers these areas and helps you make change at the subconsious level because that is where true change takes place. There are no diets, no restrictions – we teach balance, and intuitive and mindful eating.
Tailored programs can change your mindset – your habits and behaviours – around food that that have been acquired over a lifetime. The foundations can be put into place that will alter and transform the way you think about food – for good! And again – all without dieting. If you want to eat chocolate cake you still can!! But it will be because you want to and enjoy it, not because it’s an habitual source for emotional eating. See the difference?
Whether your weight gain is new to you, or whether you have battled weight most of your life, hypnosis can change:
• How you think about food, your mindset and behaviour towards it
• Your habits and portions
• Your choice of food
• Your enthusiasm to exercise
Hypnosis will give you a foundation for a life changing new relationship with food that will enable you to become the person you want to be.
