Health & Fitness Weight Loss Is Hypnosis for Weight Loss Just a Fad?

   I came across a post on a weight loss web site this morning which grasped my attention and I simply felt I had to do my best to set the record straight.Unhappily for me, and many other hypnotherapists, the author made a very valid point.

   The author had come to the conclusion that hypnosis for weight loss was just a fad.Now, before we go any further I want to say that I do not agree with this statement.However, I can see how they had arrived at their decision.Their article pointed out the inevitable fact that to lose weight successfully you have to change your lifestyle.In fact, this is what they said:-

   "Having a healthy body is not a onetime investment. You need to change your lifestyle in case you want to lose weight. All these claims that are being made about weight loss and hypnosis have no back up proof! Everyday there is some or the other "new and improved" way to lose weight that attracts hordes of people towards it. But, ultimately one has to return back to the basic, eating healthy food and exercising. Hypnotism is one such FAD that is getting popularity. Although hypnotism can be used to relax your mind off stress, it really cannot be used to make an individual got from fat to fit. And that is a sure FACT!" (

    Unfortunately everything is open to abuse, even those which are good and beneficial.Hypnosis is no exception.

    In the right hands, hypnosis can be used to create wonderful benefits as it allows you to connect with the subconscious mind. This means that hypnosis can be used to assist in everything in life which has a psychological element, including ones approach to weight loss.

    Hypnosis, per se, is not going to burn up calories or exercise your limbs for you.But it can get you into the right frame of mind to want to exercise, to enjoy exercise and to eat in a healthier manner.Hypnosis can be used to get you to feel more energetic and to see your world from a different perspective.

    Successful weight loss depends upon your attitude towards it and if you want to use hypnosis to get your mind around the pesky subject of weight loss then you can do just this.Hypnosis can be used to create a state of mind which is positive, motivated and conducive to success.

    Hypnosis can however be abused by the hypnotist or affiliate marketer making unbelievable or hyped up claims and it can also be abused by those who don't really give it a fair try.Hypnosis is open to abuse from both ends.

    If you look to hypnosis to "do it for you" you are not giving it a real shot - "trying is lying".Do you try to go to the gym or do you go to the gym?Do you try to go shopping or do you just shop? There is a BIG difference in the outcome which you experience and it all hinges on how you prepared yourself mentally right at the beginning.

    I can see how someone could come to the conclusion that hypnosis is a fad; but in defense of hypnosis I have to say that this is not everyone's viewpoint.Hypnosis is only a fad approach to weight loss by those who treat it as such.

    For those who really want hypnosis to work for them then I urge you to read up on the subject.Look at all the scientific research into hypnosis which is readily available; arm yourself with information and then make an informed choice as to whether you can make hypnosis work for you. I'm not going to point you to a particular place; the information is out there for you to find and to make your own decision about.

    Hypnosis is not a quick fix.It's a natural tool which allows you to see things from a different angle.If you only use it as a quick fix, then you are the one who turns it into a fad instead of a valuable and beneficial therapeutic aid.

Weight Loss Hypnotherapy does work. I can say from my own experience hypnotherapy for weight loss does really work, i know that because i have had it done after struggling with my weight for many years.

I must admit before I heard a radio broadcast on the BBC with Claire Hegarty who was invited on the show for being an leading expert in Weight loss hypnotherapy, i would have said to anyone who suggested that i was hypnotized for weight loss, not to be so stupid. But after struggling with my weight for many years and where my weight went all the way up to 22 stone, i listened to the show after becoming despearate and found it very interesting.

I had tried everything to lose weight, i went on loads of diets, i went to my doctor time and time again and he was not interested, i even asked if i could be given a pill that doctors give out for weight loss but he refused so i was now desperate and would have tried anything.

After listening to claire hegarty on the show and listening to what she had to say about hypnotherapy, i decided to contact her through her website, now you have to understand at this time i was still not believing hypnotherapy could help you lose weight but i did want to know more.

She explained all about hypnotherapy and weight loss and how it works to help you lose weight and i was very interested and started to feel maybe their is light at the end of the tunnel, maybe i can get back my ideal weight. I agreed to meet her and after getting on well with her i became her client. And i have to say, that i am so happy that i am now four stone lighter and still losing weight.

So what i have to say to you is, do research by all means into weight loss hypnosis, but it does work and do go to an expert and see the diference it will make to your life as it has made a huge difference to my life but make sure that they are an expert. Just because they do hypnotherapy, it does not mean they are an expert in hypnotherapy weight loss
