There are numerous methods to lose weight. These methods may vary from ditching junk food to exercising hard to practicing yoga to consuming weight loss pills. But Hypnosis? Sounds a little out of place, doesn’t it? But an increasing number of people are turning towards this off-beat method, hypnosis for weight loss.

A person under hypnosis is highly responsive to directions, questions and suggestions. It is used to treat various ailments and psychological problems.
Hypnosis for Weight Loss:
Hypnotherapy for weight loss is a common practice these days. It may not directly reduce weight like weight loss diets or exercises but it does gradually cure the root problem that causes weight gain in the first place. It is highly effective if the cause of weight gain or obesity is non-genetic. Obesity caused by psychological issues like stress, sleeplessness, mood-swings, emotional eating, eating-disorders and depression can be cured by hypnosis. This is an age-old technique that predates carb and calorie counting by few centuries. It is all about controlling your mind and altering your needs and cravings.

- It will improve your ability to think more clearly
- It will increase your ability to focus
- It will increase your self-awareness
- It will lower your stress levels
- It will increase the production of brain chemicals that are related to the quality of life. Eg serotonin
- It will improve your emotional and mental health
- It helps in weight management
Process of Hypnosis for Weight Loss:
The process of hypnosis weight loss is very simple yet complicated. Many people opt for self-hypnosis where they practice this therapy on their own. This can be a tough thing to do and may not give you expected results. It is always better that you consult a hypnotherapist for this therapy.
Basically, the process of hypnosis for weight loss require 4 sessions:
1. First Session:
Understanding root-cause and removing past obstacles.
2. Second Session:
Working with your subconscious to create a new success plan.
3. Third Session:
Testing your plan, checking if it has worked or not.
4. Fourth Session:
Reviewing the plan—if the aim has been achieved, the therapy is stopped. If not, the plan is modified and the process is repeated.
Usually, each session has a week long gap in between. For these seven days, you’ll need to follow the therapist’s suggestions about daily routine activities, diets and exercises. Four sessions are usually enough to lose the desired weight if the activities, exercises and diets are followed as advised.
A Brief Synopsis:
Hypnosis for weight loss programs is all about caring for yourself. It teaches you the real priorities of your life—your needs, your wants and your lifestyle choices.

Healthy and happy—isn’t that what life is all about?
The market is full of pills and oils that may help you lose weight quickly, but these options are not always healthy.

The gradual process of weight loss is always good for your health and hypnosis is a great way for gradual and permanent weight loss.
