Almost everyone with the desire to lose weight will try dieting at some point. Unfortunately most dieters aren't 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 program. However, there are many options for those trying to lose weight.
Unlike a diet, hypnotism for weight loss will help motivate you to naturally have a healthier diet and exercise more. Here, I will discuss some of the diet programs you may have heard of, the keys to permanent weight loss, and how you can achieve weight loss through hypnotherapy techniques.
The high numbers of Internet searches for free diet programs and free online diet plans show just how many of us want to lose weight. Some popular diet programs are:
The Atkins diet, which is a well-known low carbohydrate diet, is centered around the limited intake of "refined carb" foods such as sugar and white bread. By limiting carbohydrate intake, this weight loss program is supposed to make the body switch from burning carbohydrates for energy to burning fat (the state of 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 requires 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 in hopes of increasing the body's metabolism to use up more calories. The products contain many ingredients typically found in diet pills. The Suddenly Slim diet is supposed to work without more exercise or making other significant lifestyle changes, although exercise and better eating habits will increase results.
The Zone diet balances fat, protein, and carbohydrate intake, with 30% of calories coming from fat, 40% from carbohydrates, and 30% from protein. Like the Atkins diet, this diet is often categorized as "low carb." The Zone diet pays close attention to calorie intake and physical fitness levels to produce results.
The Cabbage soup diet is a component in many free online 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 typically lead to a few pounds of weight loss, but when you resume normal eating habits, the weight tends to come back. Furthermore, staying on this unbalanced diet plan for more than one week may lead to inadequate nutrition and poor health.
There are hundreds if not thousands of diet programs all promising fast results, but what many of these popular diet programs claim is not what they really offer. They are based on meal plans that are irregular, 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 weight loss are not in fad dieting or even expensive diet plans, but in portion control, selecting healthy, filling foods, and exercising regularly. This sounds easy to do, but it can be difficult to stay motivated to maintain healthy habits and undo years of bad dietary choices.
We often lose our motivation to exercise and eat healthy. Hypnosis can be used to reverse our negative habits and lack of motivation. Hypnotherapy weight loss programs work by tapping into the power of the unconscious mind to give you the desire to exercise and treat your body right.
Even the best diet plans fail if they are not followed through. Research reveals that most diets fail because dieters just cannot stick to them. After years of eating oversized portions, many of us compulsively overeat and our appetites are out of control. This is where hypnosis for weight loss is especially effective. Hypnotherapy weight loss programs are excellent at helping to regulate food cravings and control the appetite.
For many people, another component to weight loss is stress management. Many people are emotional eaters. We eat in response to our feelings, such as when we are sad or bored. This emotional attachment to food can make it easy to gain weight. We can use hypnotism for weight loss to create alternative strategies for dealing with stress and break the habit of associating food with our feelings.
Hypnosis techniques can be self-taught using a good self-hypnosis program. There are weight loss self-hypnosis programs specifically designed to promote weight loss through hypnosis. With simple techniques from weight loss hypnosis CD programs, you can stop fighting to lose weight and become naturally enabled to shed pounds.
