Hypnosis For Weight Loss - The Single Most Important Behavior For Weight Loss

How To Lose Weight While Eating

Ok, here it is. It is one of the most simple things you can do. It is extremely effective and powerful. And yet, when I first explain to you what it is, you’re probably going to put it aside, ignore it, or say to yourself, “that’s so simple”, or ” I knew that”. Don’t be put off the simplistic nature of what I’m about to reveal. Remember the power is in the action you take, not in your own conscious thoughts. So here is the simple strategy that will guarantee that you will reduce your weight. Allow yourself to only eat in a few specific locations. Period. That’s it, the simple strategy that will allow you to lose weight fast and steadily. There are some additional fine points that I’m going to make but that is pretty much it, in a nutshell.

Where You Eat Will Make You Fat

That’s right, your location choice of where you eat, or dine will most definitely make you fat. Some of those places that you have eaten in the past that have caused you to put on weight are sitting at your desk at work, sitting on the couch in front of the television, sitting in front of the computer, lying on your bed, standing around in the kitchen, or at work, or walking around eating, snacking, or drinking. These are the places that cause weight gain, and prevent weight loss. As far as walking around and eating, the Japanese culture has it correctly. You will rarely see Japanese people walking around the streets eating food. It is culturally unacceptable, even rude. This is obviously a learned behavior that has become accepted in our culture. There is a cure for this…STOP IT!

Mindful choices of where you eat are as important as when you eat and what you choose to eat. That’s because you want to have your full attention on the foods that you are eating. You want to focus and enjoy the foods, relish the taste, flavor, texture, and aroma. Know that you are eating and eating slowly and you will easily become aware of when you have eaten enough and naturally stop. When you focus on the mechanics of eating, you have no distractions and you are able to control the amount of foods you supply your body with, as well as fully enjoy what it is that you are eating. It’s called mindful eating.

How To Develop Mindful Eating

The simple way of developing mindful eating is to create the associations of good feelings with the places that you allow yourself the comfort of eating, and create the associations of bad, uncomfortable feelings with the places that you no longer will accept as places to eat food. In my office in NYC I regularly use hypnosis to facilitate this change in my clients. You can use the self hypnosis techniques that I teach in my self hypnosis mini course to mentally rehearse these pleasure and pain associations on your own as well. Even using your conscious mind to make a change, while taking longer to accomplish, will help you in developing the new habits of a healthy and fit person. And that’s what this is all about, creating the habits of a healthy and fit person.

In Summary

You have the power to take back control of your eating behaviors. It is a simple process once you identify those behaviors that are causing you to gain weight. I have found that many of the clients that come to see me are unaware of what the behaviors are that are the cause of their weight problem. There is also those who know what they are doing wrong, but can’t seem to make the change on their own. Those people are usually driven more by the emotional pleasure they derive from the behavior, or even from the distractive nature of the behavior rather than the need to consume nutrition for survival. With those people it is necessary to work through what feeling component is to their unwelcome behavior before they can make changes in the behavior itself.
