Some Truths About Using Hypnosis for Dieting
Many people who are interested in having thinner physiques visit the Internet from time to time, looking for an easier way to achieve their goals than what they are currently pursuing. Who can blame them? A diet and exercise regimen can be hard (and sometimes dull) work. At any rate, sooner or later anyone who researches weight loss on the Internet will come across hypnosis weight loss audiotapes or CD’s for sale. These listings will often be accompanied by descriptive advertising copy that extols the benefits of the item offered for sale. It is not our intention to recommend for or against any of these products, but merely to state that some are worthwhile and many are otherwise. Let the buyer beware.
Moving on to the more positive aspects of hypnosis for dieting let’s consider the following: research has been unable to draw any conclusion as to the efficacy of products like these when used by themselves. However, it has shown that these products can be of value as reinforcers for behavioral weight management. Put in simplest terms, hypnotic training can help keep you from, say, chowing down on a box of sugar donuts after your workout, because with practice, your mind will overrule your cravings.
So now we know that hypnosis for dieting can be a valuable tool when used to augment more traditional activities such as diet and exercise. Here’s hoping that we’ve also learned to dismiss the notion that listening to any audio product one time will leave an everlasting indelible mark on our psyches. The magic bullet for effortless weight loss may still be out there, and people will no doubt continue to search for it, but for now we will have to settle for continued practicality in our efforts.
If you are interested in pursuing Hypnosis as a diet aid, start by consulting a certified hypnotherapist. He/she can guide you on the path until you understand what is taking place and how to get there on your own. There is no reason to be afraid. Your Self will not allow you to hurt yourself, despite what you’ve seen in the creepy movies. The mind is a wonderful and greatly misunderstood thing. You can use it to become a better person, and a slimmer one as well.
