 Course Descriptions
What most overweight people need is a change in
their feelings about themselves and about food.
People use food for many reasons and we will
explore these reasons. This program is designed
to improve your self-image, change your
relationship with food and lessen the amount of
food needed to satisfy you. Get a handle on your
eating habits and feel better about yourself! This
program uses the power of hypnosis to lower the
intake of carbohydrates. We will access the power
of the mind through hypnosis, to be aware of the
amounts of carbs consumed on a regular basis.
We will then lower the need and desire to eat and
over-indulge in consuming carbs. Using hypnosis,
we will reinforce healthier eating, as well as,
discovering ways to setup boundaries to maintain
proper carb eating. Learn to take control!
