One of the hottest trends going around right now is that of weight loss hypnosis. People who have tried to diet before in the past and failed miserably are now giving this trend a try, hoping that it may hold the key that unlocks them to greater success.
But, will it really work? Is it the answer to your prayers?
There are a few things that you must understand first before you make an informed decision.
Let’s go over what you need to know.
You Must Be Suggestive
The very first thing that you must remember is the fact that in order for weight loss hypnotherapy to work, you do need to be suggestive.
Those who are easily moved into a suggestive state will be able to be hypnotized fairly readily, while those who can’t, won’t.
It’s really as simple as that. Some people are great with hypnosis, but for others, the effects aren’t going to have that much of an influence on them. Of course, this does in part depend on the skill of the hypnotist that you’re working with, but keep in mind that some people will just find it naturally works better for them.
It may be worth your while to be hypnotized for something relatively minor (such as for entertainment purposes) first to see how suggestive you really are.
You Will Still Have To Work
Second, it’s important that you do remember that just because you are hypnotized, this does not mean you won’t have to do some work.
You’re still going to have to put in effort to eat properly an exercise regularly. It won’t take away from that so for those who hope this is some magic cure that means they will no longer have to even try and weight loss will just come right off, they are in for disappointment.
You do still have to put in effort to see results. Failing to believe that is setting yourself up to fail.
You May Need Repeat Sessions
Finally, the last thing that you’ll want to keep in mind if you’re considering using hypnosis as a method of losing weight is the fact that you may need to get repeated sessions with the hypnotist.
Some people view it as a one-shot cure-all. They go once and magically, they are no longer doing behaviors that prevent weight gain from occurring.
While in a few cases it may be this simple, in most, it’s more complex than that. Especially if your habits have been highly ingrained in you for years, you may require multiple sessions on an ongoing basis until you finally reach your goal weight.
And even then, you may still require occasional check-ups to ensure it doesn’t become a problem again.
So if you’re going to consider it, just be sure that you are open to the idea that it could be a long term endeavor.
So there you have the facts to know about this rising trend in weight loss. If you’re really struggling, it may just be the thing to help you out.
