1 Part - Fed Up With Diets
1 Part - Intent
1 Part - Desire
1 Part - Motivation
1 Part - Imagination
A dash of self discipline
A great hypnotist!
Mix these ingredients together and POW! SUCCESS! The weight slips off your body, you feel
GREAT! If you get off track, simply mix another batch and WOW! It’s easy to get back on
This recipe eliminates feeling deprived, eliminates the need for will power as your main source
of motivation and eliminates excuses.
Here’s how it works:
1 Part - Fed Up With Diets: Diets DON’T work. A diet starts, and as we all know, diets ends.
You may lose the weight and then you put it back on. That yoyo dieting is terrible for your body
and confuses your metabolism. That Monday morning resolve, “I’m going to be good today”,
only makes you feel bad about yourself when it inevitably fails.
1 Part - Intent: A new year’s resolution is a good thing in that it creates intent. No whining,
complaining, or poor me stuff that you did all last year. A strong intent is motivated by a desire
to take care of your body because when your body feels good, everything is better!
1 Part - Desire: If you care about yourself, you can dredge up some desire to make changes to
your body. Hmm, that new outfit would look great! Maybe you’ll even be happy with your body.
And if you think you’ll never be happy with your body, then desire to be satisfied, content or
accepting of your self.
1 Part - Motivation: OK, it’s true, there has to be some motivation to take off weight.
Motivation is the desire to let go of what you have been doing that doesn’t work, to do
something different. It’s best to be motivated for yourself, but ft motivation happens because you
are going on vacation or to a wedding, it still works.
1 Part - Imagination: When you can “see” it in your mind, you can make it happen in your life.
A simple premise and a powerful one. Tapping into your imagination makes weight loss easier,
if not fun and effortless.
A Dash Of Self Discipline: When you were a child you were disciplined by your parents.
Follow the rules, do things a certain way, meet expectations, put off gratification for a better
goal. So tap into that training, or muster up the self discipline that you have used tons of times
when you created successes in your life.
A Great Hypnotist: Everyone needs support and that is just what a hypnotist is. Gently guiding
you to create your positive body image, inspiring you to move forward towards your goal and
guiding you through the blocks that have been holding you back. What a relief not to have to do
it all on your own.
Two things are important for successful and long lasting weight loss. What you put into your
body and how much fat you burn. Hypnosis helps you gain control by helping you to desire the
foods that are fresh, clean and nutritionally valuable. You change your eating habits easily and
comfortably so you don’t “feel” like eating the sugary, fatty foods that contributed to your
weight gain. You shift the fatty, sugary foods to the category of occasional foods but never
deprive yourself. You learn how to pay attention to your “I’m satisfied” body signals. Once
activated, you stop eating much earlier with less food. You support your weight loss by burning
off those layers of fat with exercise that makes you feel good inside and out.
You also address emotional eating and begin to separate emotional hunger from physical hunger.
If you get off track for a day or so, you can easily get back on track so that you do not put the
weight back on.
Hypnosis supports general weight loss as well as helping those with obesity, which is a common
problem in our society and stems from old family programming around food, years and years of
food commercials and low self esteem. Gastro bypass or lap band surgery is the current rage and
it works! However the struggle can still be there because the emotional issues remain when the
willpower and newness of the procedures wear off. Even after surgery, there is still hard work to
do. Old habits to change, and emotions to deal with. Hypnosis makes this life changing event
easier and more tolerable and allows you to become comfortable with your “new image”.
