America is in the middle of an obesity epidemic. We are inundated with advertisements for weight reduction programs, special diets with expensive prepared foods, invasive surgeries, and weekly counseling or group meetings. But none of these options is a magic solution to a very personal problem.
No one denies that being overweight is a serious health risk that could lead to diabetes, chronic heart conditions, high blood pressure, and often shorter life expectancy. Losing weight can be extremely difficult, especially due to the lives we live. We are busy and often do not have the time to cook healthy meals. We love to socialize which often includes eating out and our world is full of offerings of tasty but highly caloric food and drink. Not only is losing weight difficult, but it also is not fun if it involves depriving ourselves of things we love.
Most people truly want to lose weight and they try any new diet, eating program, exercise regime or medical treatment that comes their way. Many of these will produce results if they are rigorously followed. But as soon as the weight has been lost and regular life resumes, the weight comes back on. So, we try another program and lose the weight only to gain it back. This yo-yo dieting is not only frustrating but also poses a threat to general health. Weight loss is more than just briefly changing what we eat and what we do. It is changing the way we think about who we are and what we eat.
Hypnotherapy approaches general weight loss by helping you reset your focus and learning healthier eating habits. For people who need to lose more than twenty-five pounds, a more intensive treatment called Hypnotic Virtual Gastric Band System uses the power of hypnosis to retrain you to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food.
