Almost everyone trying to lose weight will start going on a diet at some point. Unfortunately most dieters are not able to permanently keep weight off. This is because it is often difficult or impossible to commit to a diet and keep up with a weight loss plan. However, there are other options for those who want to lose weight.
Unlike a diet, hypnotherapy will help motivate you to naturally have a healthier diet and get more exercise. Here, I will discuss some popular diet plans, the keys to losing weight, and how you can achieve weight loss using hypnotherapy.
The high numbers of searches for dieting advice and online diet plans indicate that many people are looking to lose weight. Some popular diet plans are:
The Atkins diet, which is a popular low carbohydrate diet, is centered on the limited intake of “refined carb” foods such as sugar and white bread. By restricting carbohydrate consumption, this weight loss program is supposed to make the body switch from burning carbohydrates for energy to burning fat (a process called ketosis).
The Ornish diet is a very low fat, vegetarian diet, is an entirely vegetarian diet, and when followed diligently, a scant 10% of total calorie intake will come from fat. The Ornish diet also strongly encourages stress-management and exercise, and has been used successfully to help reverse heart disease in many dieters.
The Suddenly Slim diet program involves taking diet pills and meal replacement shakes with the goal of stimulating the body’s metabolism to use up more calories. The products include many ingredients typically found in diet pills. The Suddenly Slim diet is supposed to work without more exercise or making other major lifestyle changes, although exercise and better eating habits will increase results.
The Zone diet balances carbohydrate, fat, and protein intake, with 30% of calories coming from fat, 40% from carbohydrates, and 30% from protein. Like the Atkins diet, this diet is frequently considered to be “low carb.” The Zone diet pays close attention to calorie intake and physical exercise to deliver results.
The Cabbage soup diet is a component in numerous diet plans and is largely considered to be a fad diet. It consists of eating only low calorie cabbage soup for seven days. Following this diet will usually lead to some weight loss, but when you resume normal eating habits, the weight will usually come back. Furthermore, staying on this unbalanced diet plan for more than a week may lead to poor nutrition and poor health.
There are countless diet programs all promising fast results, but what many of these popular diets claim is not what they actually offer. They are based on meal plans that are unbalanced, unsustainable over a long-term period, or downright unhealthy. The truth is permanent weight loss is rarely achieved through a short, one-time diet session.
Successful dieters know that the keys to success are not in fad diets or even diet programs, but in portion control, selecting nutritious and filling foods, and exercising regularly. This sounds simple to do, but it can be difficult to stay motivated to keep healthy habits and undo a lifetime of bad dietary choices.
We often lose our motivation to exercise and eat right. Hypnosis can be used to change our bad habits and lack of motivation. Hypnosis weight loss programs work by tapping into the power of your unconscious mind to motivate you to exercise and treat your body right.
Even the best free diet plans will fail if they aren’t followed through. Research shows that most diets fail because dieters just can’t stick to them. After years of eating oversized portions, many of us compulsively overeat and our appetites are out of control. This is where hypnotherapy for weight loss is especially effective. Hypnosis weight loss programs are highly successful in helping to control food cravings and control the appetite.
For many people, another component to losing weight is stress management. Many people overeat because of emotions. We eat food in response to our feelings, such as when we are bored or sad. This emotional attachment to food can make it easy to gain weight. We can use hypnotherapy to develop better strategies for coping with stress and to quit associating food with our emotions.
It is easy to learn hypnosis by yourself with a good self-hypnosis program. There are weight loss hypnotherapy programs specifically developed to help you achieve your goal of permanently losing weight. With simple techniques from self hypnosis CD programs, you can quit struggling to lose weight and become naturally enabled to shed pounds.
