Change your mind to lose weight Monday 27 April 2015 PDF Print over a stone in weight has easily been lost and I feel like I'm changing habits of a lifetime in a positive way. Thank you! A new and easy way to lose weight with the help of hypnosis and mindfulness Reducing levels of obesity, improving the quality of what we eat and managing stress are some of the most important issues facing the health of the nation today. For most of us, losing weight, changing our eating habits and learning to distress are challenges that we face and ironically are challenges that most of us find stressful and hard work in themselves! If you can relate to that, then here is a new, accessible way to make the challenge so much easier and more achievable. The new Lose weight through healthy choices download or CD teaches you effective hypnosis and mindfulness techniques, both of which have been clinically proven (see editors notes) to change eating habits, reduce stress and help with weight loss, and will help you feel more in control, stop unwanted habits, de stress and make healthier choices. “As a confirmed chocoholic with a serious biscuit addition I was sceptical about how well this would work. However after just listening to the track once I found myself indulging in apples, craving vegetables and generally eating less and moving more. My energy levels have increased, and along side my weight watchers tracking I'm discovering a whole new me – over a stone in weight has easily been lost and I feel like I'm changing habits of a lifetime in a positive way. Thank you!” Deb Cooper “I love this track! It really removes all of the pressure and anxiety about being 'on a diet'. It aims to do what is most important - make healthy choices. It gives you control over your behaviours and doesn't lead to the same guilt that you have when you eat something on a diet that you 'can't have'. I also like the 'me time' I get when listening to the track. It helps me feel like I'm doing something good for me and looking after myself.” Yvonne Hopkinson The Lose weight through healthy choices has been developed by one of the Uks leading Hypnotherapists Maggie Howell: “For many people, the reasons they over eat have little to do with hunger or their actual need for energy. It is often for reasons such as stress, boredom, habit, addiction to sugar and even dehydration. Many people feel they are unable to consciously control the desire to eat certain types of food and have ingrained negative thought patterns around food. It is often these negative associations with food coupled with lack of will power or control that prevent them from making the necessary changes to reduce their weight.” The process of hypnosis and mindfulness enables powerful communication between your conscious and subconscious and so by listening to and absorbing the words and suggestions, you are able to easily change patterns, thoughts, beliefs and habits at both a conscious as well as deeper subconscious level. Using these kind of techniques to change your thoughts, patterns and eating habits is becoming more and more popular with celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Geri Haliwell, Sophie Dahl and Lilly Allen using them to help reduce and manage their weight. As the saying goes – there is no diet that will do what healthy eating day in and day out does. There is a great deal of evidence that diets do not actually work in the long term. It is only by changing your thoughts, triggers and eating habits to ones which are healthy and beneficial for you that you will reduce your weight and size to one which is right for you. By listening to this track once a day for 7 days, you will soon notice a change in your patterns, you will be drinking more water, feel less cravings, enjoy the food you do eat and feel more in control of your choices. Available as a CD (£11.99) or MP3 (£7.99) from www.hypnosisforhealthychoices.co.uk. The track is also available on itunes. Editor’s notes Skeptical?
