I Tried Hypnosis to Change My Terrible Eating Habits


Can you relate to eating habits that include stuffing yourself one day, then starving yourself the next day, only to gain weight in the end? You know what to do: eat better and less, but your willpower fails. Could hypnosis change your attitudes and therefore, increase your diet success? The author of the attached article found that it wasn't willpower she needed, it was changing her attitudes.

Key Takeaways:

  • People are motivated to see a hypnotist due to the negative "I can't" self-talk, which makes them feel out of control and therefore, leads them down a path of failure.
  • Hypnosis can interrupt the negative self-talk as well as interrupt mindless patterns, such as eating what everyone else is eating and eating unconsciously.
  • As the author of this article found out, diet success is based on feeling in control, not on making huge diet changes.
  • In fact, a study by the International Journal of Clinical Experimental Hypnosis of 60 obese women found that 2 different types of hypnosis helped eating behavior and weight lose.

"Hypnosis is all about changing people's attitudes, which in turn shape their reality."
