Women, Food and God - How Hypnosis Can Train You Quickly

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

There’s a book that is highly recommended by Oprah Winfrey. It is written by Geneen Roth, and it deals with the emotions behind your eating behaviors. In fact, Oprah is now placing Geneen in her special guru category and is now claiming that this author is the reason why she has decided to take back the good fight and work toward losing the weight she needs to lose to be happy.

Being happy is the goal, and not the weight loss. But they certainly will go together as Oprah remains steadfast on her journey toward emotional freedom. That’s the freedom to feel the emotions that come up so she can respond to any and all emotions in a way that is most satisfactory.

Geneen Roth explains in her book that food is a teacher for those who use food to deal with their emotions. Sit back and take some time before you eat. A food meditation can be revealing to you.

You can speed this process along considerably when you combine what you learn in Roth’s book with the hypnosis techniques that I frequently use to rid clients of their past relationship with food. The emotional reasons that cause people to eat are learned responses that do not hold up under the scrutiny of the meditative experiences that Roth recommends. And using the hypnotic techniques of the masters can have those emotions debunked in your first or second session. When the emotional reasons for using food wrongly are corrected, you become free to treat food the way it was intended. For nourishment and rebuilding your body to equilibrium.

Join me for your affordable group or one on one training to learn the correct way to respond to your food choices and free yourself from emotional eating forever.

Gastric Bypass Surgery - Does the Surgery Work or is it Something Else?

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Gastric Bypass Surgery is a medical procedure that is performed by a doctor in a hospital operating room. The surgeon will cut into your body and perform some kind of reworking of your digestive system that makes it almost impossible for you to eat too much food. And if you can’t eat too much food then you will start to lose weight.

It sounds like a wonderful way to lose weight for people who are unable to do it on their own. But does the surgery make the patient lose weight or is there another factor that is the cause of the weight loss? The reason that I question the surgery is because after the operation the patient is then forced to eat a special diet. They must eat small portions. And I believe that it’s that process that causes the weight loss. Not the operation.

Here’s what happens during the operation. the surgeon goes in and cuts away part of the stomach or parts of the tubes leading to the stomach. He then reattaches them to the rest of the digestive system. The intent is to make the patients stomach smaller an unable to hold their normal amount of food. In fact, if the patient should eat too much they will end up vomiting up the extra portion, or worse, cause damage to their internal organs. this would require another surgical procedure that would add additional danger to the entire process.

So what this process has done is take the condition of being overweight, which is a long term danger, and made it into an acute short term danger. And it does require the patient to re learn better eating and dietary habits. These new better eating behaviors are the reason for the loss of weight. And if the patient doesn’t adopt the new behaviors they will have an acute attack of sometime that could result in death. It seems kind of a drastic measure, just to get you to take back control of your eating, doesn’t it?

But what if you could have the motivator of the surgery without all the risks of the surgery? Would that work? And then working with a professional to stay on track with your new dietary choices start to lose weight the natural way. Without the risk of immediate death and without the cost of the hospital bills and the surgeons expense.

What has been developed is a process called a virtual gastric bypass. And it is performed in the office of a hypnotist trained to guide their client through a visualization process that has the client believing they underwent an operation that decreased the size of their stomach. Making it impossible for the client to eat too much or they will end up vomiting the extra food. With the effectiveness of the hypnotic techniques used these days, this is a wonderful workable solution. And one that should be considered.

It has been reported in News across the world about these type of virtual operations being performed. According to one hypnotist they achieve a 95% success rate in one month’s time. Some of the participants reported losing up to a pound a day. With this encouraging news, I am looking for participants to join me in a study of this new procedure. We are forming a group that will do this radically new hypnotic process. If you are interested in being a part of this limited group, please call immediately 212 223-1832 and see if you can be accepted.

And what do you think of this process? Do you have any experiences with trying to lose weight and reservations about whether this could work for you? Post your comments below.

Hypnosis To Lose Weight - What Type Of Foods To Eat

Monday, April 6th, 2009

I was recently asked by a young woman if she ate unhealthy food but in small amounts will she be able to lose weight.  And the reason she questioned this is because she had a male friend who ate very little but he would eat junk.  Cookies, chips etc.  Not what anyone would consider  a diet of food.  So to answer that question more fully I decided to go over some of the basics of nutrition and weight loss.

Calories in, calories out.

On a very simple level, weight loss can be equated strictly with the number of calories you put into your body and then subtract the amount of energy you expend in caloric value.  You need to eat an amount that is less than what you burn in order to lose weight.

With that said there is a number of variables that will affect each individual’s weight loss as well.

Man vs. Woman

One of those seems to be gender.  Women naturally have more fatty tissues available to them, and this is for survival of themselves and the species.  Fatty tissues that support the reproductive system and are necessary for our human survival.

What is your age?

Another factor is age.  As we age, our body’s metabolism usually slows down, so food intake should adjust to our aging.  Unfortunately, as we age we often condition ourselves to eating for comfort.  We have more unpleasant experiences which require comforting and so we eat for comfort more often.  The longer we do this the more habitual this becomes.  And this works against us as well.

Re-Conditioning

To overcome this conditioning requires mentally retraining ourselves to respond in a different way that is more appropriate for what it is that we truly want to become.  If you want to lose weight, you will want to condition yourself to respond to food as if it is just fuel for your body and not a way of getting comfort.  You need to train yourself to rely on other means to derive comfort.

Hypnosis - A way to take back control

While this might seem difficult for some, the good news is that by using hypnosis you can accomplish this pretty easily.  Changing your mind from the source, is the quickest way to make changes that are unthinking.  And you already know how effective that is as it has been your unthinking programming that has probably gotten you into this trouble already.

What is your BMI?

Another thing that is important is what is your BMI.  That is your Body Mass Index.  It will determine if you are fat or not.  Muscle is important, and you want to make sure that you are not losing muscle just to have a lower number on the bathroom scale.  The number really has less meaning than the way you look, feel, fit into your clothes, and how you get around in the world.  That is the type of fitness that is most important.  Here is a free BMI calculator for finding out your  Body Mass Index over at this link:  http://hypnoticstate.com/hypnosis-tools/hypnosis-bmi-calculator.html

Thin or Healthy?  Why not both?

And finally, do you want to be thin or healthy?  Do you want to be attractive, or just be able to say you weigh a particular number?  Your answer will probably be that being thin will provide you with something other than bragging rights over how much you weigh.  Most people want to lose weight because they want to feel better and be more attractive.  Increase their self esteem, improve their chances for promotion at work, or socially.  It’s really about feeling better more than about looking better.  The result of fitting into your clothes more comfortably.  The freedom of not having to focus on food and meals so much, so you can put your mind onto other more productive and pleasing thoughts.

Self Hypnosis To Reprogram Your Thoughts

You can learn to refocus your mind on a healthier life, and lifestyle using self hypnosis.  You can take an active role in re programming your mind to think the thoughts that make you feel more successful, which will lead you to being more successful.  There is a great free course on using self hypnosis to lose weight that you can get over here: http://hypnoticstate.com/hypnosis/lose-weight.html

Long Term Consequences

There are also long term health consequences that result from eating unhealthy foods.  So all of your worries and concerns over weight might be short lived if you find yourself succumbing to a life threatening ailment as a result of eating really poorly.
