Weight Loss with Hypnosis?

December 27, 2011

This is a guest post by Brennan Smith.


Recently I was contacted by the team at Natural Hypnosis asking if I wanted to try their 3 free hypnosis downloads, or their weight loss albums. It’s not something I have tried before, but after a few emails back and forwards I became quite intrigued and have asked them to write a blog post for you too - explaining how hypnosis can help you to lose weight.

Miracle Solution?

First of all it is important to start off by making it clear that hypnosis is NOT a miracle solution.

If you JUST listen to hypnosis and expect to lose weight completely effortlessly then you might be disappointed. If you eat junk food while listening then yes you will still put on weight, and if you don’t take other action such as eating a balanced diet and exercising, then again, no you probably won’t get the result you want.

The Reality

Although it is not magic, hypnosis really can help you to lose weight, and HELP being the key word here.

Hypnosis can be an amazing tool when combined with your own efforts. If you really want to lose weight then it can give you a real boost and the mental edge which could even be the difference between success and failure.

If you have been constantly going through the weight loss cycle for years; starting a diet, struggling, giving up, going back to your old ways, and then starting over.. then something is missing..

You have the knowledge, you know what you need to do, you even do it for a little while and perhaps even see some results.. but there is something missing, something you are not “doing”.. and this is having the right mindset, the willpower, motivation, and the mental strength to succeed.

  • Motivation: Hypnosis is an excellent way to help you to stimulate motivation. This absolutely applies to losing weight too – hypnosis can get you into that state of mind where you are super charged, positive, motivated, and even excited.. excited about your diet, about exercising, about the possibilities of losing weight, how it will change you life if you lose the weight that is holding you back.
  • Willpower: It can also be an excellent “pick me up”. When you have one of those tough days, when you feel low, or can feel that you are going to cheat, then just pause, play your hypnosis album and see how you feel afterwards. One of the main benefits of hypnosis is that it taps directly into your subconscious mind, and it really can change the way you feel.
  • Mindset: Overall, hypnosis works to change your mindset for the long-term. It is not just a quick motivation / willpower boost, no, the end goal is to make lasting changes to the way you think. If you chat to a hypnotist, then they will tell you that the reason you are still overweight is that you have different patterns of thinking to those people who are naturally slim, eat right without thinking of it and do exercise without seeing it as a chore, exercise to some people is enjoyable or more – just a normal part of their daily life. Imagine if you thought like this too, how much easier weight loss would be – this is the exact long term goal of hypnosis; to make you think like one of these naturally slim and healthy people too, so that you can acquire these habits too, and lose weight much more naturally.

If you start using hypnosis with a mindset of “Right! This time will be different! I will eat right, I will stick to my meal plans, I will go to the gym 3x a week and live healthily, and I will listen to my hypnosis every day for a month and I will succeed” then, yes, with this positive mindset, hypnosis really can help you.

If this interests you then you can get started with these weight loss hypnosis CDs / MP3s from Natural Hypnosis, or get a free introduction to hypnosis you can try their 3 free hypnosis mp3s and see exactly what their style of hypnosis is like and if it is right for you.
