Sometimes, your health requires you to tap into something deeper than just the food you eat to lose weight. That’s where weight loss hypnosis comes in.
To maximize your success with your health and weight loss goals, it’s important to work with specialized hypnotherapists for weight loss.
How Does Weight Loss Hypnosis Work?
Ok, so you are curious, and you would like to give it a shot. But the question remains; does hypnosis work for weight loss and how effective is it? Some people think that hypnosis for weight loss method sounds too good to be true. But think again!
All hypnotherapy comes down to is using the power of your mind to tell yourself how you want you to be. Whether it’s to sleep better, to lose weight, stop smoking, or get the motivation to skydive and break free from your fears.
An example of how weight loss hypnosis works:
First off, weight loss hypnosis is not a magic pill. You don’t go in the therapist’s office and come out a new person with no work or effort from your end.
You need to want to take control of your health and life. That’s where hypnosis can help give you the power and control you need over your bad habits and self-discipline.
Weight loss hypnosis works best when it’s combined with a healthy diet and exercise.
What happens under hypnosis?
When you are under hypnosis, you and the hypnotherapist would typically have a conversation about what your goals are and what triggers you. You might even talk about diets that have worked for you in the past.
You then are guided using verbal repetition and mental images to help you enter a deep state of inner concentration. It is almost like being in a trance state.
In that state, your attention becomes highly focused, and you slowly become more responsive to suggestions. This includes tapping into unwanted behaviors and habits and willingly change it with the power to change your mind.
What you are changing here is your subconscious. It is that inner voice part of your mind that guides your everyday decisions without your awareness.
All the hypnotherapist is really doing here is allowing you to notice and pay attention to that inner voice that guides you. They will help you to speak to it and reprogram your own mind.
In case you are wondering, you are not asleep or unaware of everything. Someone under hypnosis can hear everything and they are still in full control.
To relate to it yourself, it’s almost like when you are starting to fall asleep while the TV is on. You are not completely knocked out and you can still hear the TV. In that state, when someone talks to you you may wake up later and somewhat vaguely recall hearing them and answering back. You are not sure what you said, but you are sure you said something.
How effective is hypnosis for weight loss?
Studies exploring weight loss found that people who used hypnosis lost more than twice as much weight as those who dieted without it.
Another study in the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis found women who underwent Hypno-behavioral therapy lost weight. This improved their eating habits as well as their body image.
Meanwhile, a meta-analysis by British researchers found hypnosis can actually help regulate the release of peptides that control how hungry and full you feel.
We can go on and on and cite study after study, and the truth is it can also vary from person to person. But the point here is weight loss hypnosis does work.
Prime candidates for weight loss hypnosis are emotional and/or unconscious eaters. Also, patients that seek hypnosis usually know what they should and shouldn’t eat and know that they just lack willpower, so they want to do the work necessary to tap into their subconscious mind.

The unconscious mind is like the software that runs your physical body. We use hypnotic techniques to reprogram the way you manage your emotions. We’ll change the way you interact with food.
- Develop mindful eating habits.
- Speed up your metabolism.
- Drop self-defeating behaviors and beliefs.
Let’s review some common weight loss issues, and how we use hypnosis techniques to resolve them.
I’m going to arm you with a variety of “Craving Buster” tools that stop cravings in their tracks. These techniques work anytime and anywhere. Other people won’t even know you’re using them.
Imagine feeling neutral about a food that used to drive you crazy. We can do that!
Hypnosis for Emotional Eating
Emotional eating is the habit of eating in response to stress. It’s eating for reasons that have nothing to do with physical hunger. This could be boredom, loneliness, anxiety, or just being tired.
Using Food as a Distraction
Eating comfort food doesn’t resolve negative emotions. It’s a temporary distraction. Emotional eating takes your mind off of miserable thoughts.
Emotional eating is a vicious cycle. Nothing resolves the underlying stress, but you get fatter!
Hypnosis for Cravings
Some people experience cravings for particular foods. Sugar, sodas, bread, carbs, and Starbucks Frappuccino’s. These high glycemic foods trigger the body’s mechanisms for fat storage.
The Truth About Cravings
A craving is simply a habit. It’s a learned behavior. I’m going to show you how to put up a roadblock that interrupts the craving. By deflating the emotional energy behind it, you’ll stop a craving any time you choose.
Every time you INTERRUPT a craving pattern, it creates new neural pathways in the brain. As a result, you’ll relax around foods that used to make you feel out of control.
Being overweight is the symptom, and negative emotions are the cause. Ask yourself, “What am I feeling that’s causing me to eat impulsively?”
Feeling depressed, anxious, or lonely? Hypnosis helps you release the negative emotions that fuel the desire to reach for comfort foods. Take control of the factors causing you stress, and food loses it’s luster as a distraction.
Healthy Eating and Exercise Motivation
After addressing your cravings and emotional drivers, it’s time for the next step. That is, hypnotic techniques for behavior modification:
- Stop eating when physical hunger is satisfied.
- Motivation to exercise in ways that are fun and energizing.
- Enjoyment of nutrient dense foods that empower you with health.
Hypnosis is a proven strategy to develop new habits and behaviors. Weight loss is not complicated, and it doesn’t have to be a struggle!
