Visual Cues Are Critical to Controlling How Much We Eat

Mindless Eating

www.sciencedaily.com

What do you do while you are eating your breakfast, lunch or dinner?  If you are like many Americans, in our fast-paced culture, then you are probably busy multi-tasking during many of your meals.  It is so common for folks to be watching TV, on their phone, working on the computer, or something else while munching away on snacks or a meal.  And it is true that many who do this also routinely overeat and have trouble loosing weight.

“The human stomach isn’t designed to keep accurate track of how much we have eaten. In fact, it takes about 20 minutes after we eat before our stomachs register that we are ‘full.’ Visual cues are critical to controlling our much we eat,” according to Brian Wansink, a food psychologist at Cornell University.

He goes on to explain how plate size makes a difference as does minimizing distractions and paying attention to what you are putting into your mouth while you are eating.

Loose Weight with Hypnosis Virtual Bypass Surgery

In 2011, I became a Certified Bariatric Surgery Support Consulting Hypnotist at the the National Guild of Hypnotists annual convention. If the following article interests you and you’d like to have the same experience, please give me a call!  The program I am trained in is not only for virtual weight loss surgery, but it was specifically designed for working with anyone who has actually had bariatric surgery (bypass, banding, sleeve) and has continued to struggle with their weight.  Altering your anatomy is not usually sufficient for permanent weight loss — your must also alter your mindset as well.  Hypnosis is Bariatric Surgery for the Mind!

Do You Avoid Exercising Due to a Fear of Sweating?

Do you avoid exercising due to a fear of sweating? This woman in England did – until she used hypnosis to overcome her phobia. The phobia of excessive sweating, called hypothermosis, made her afraid of working out. Once she conquered her fear with the help of hypnosis, she began exercising and lost a bunch of weight, dropping from size 18 to size 12 pant size in a year!

Bank worker overcomes bizarre phobia of SWEAT to lose eight-stone

“In early 2010 Tracey Stone overcame her ‘nemesis’ thanks to a course of hypnotherapy. At her biggest, she was a size 24, but she has now dropped from a size 18 to a size 12. She said: ‘I’ve had a fear of excessive sweating since I was at school. It got to the point where I was literally not walking anyway through fear of breaking sweat. I freaked out at the thought of going to the gym. But now I feel happier and healthier after finally overcoming the nemesis that had haunted me for so long.'”

http://suncoastpinellas.tbo.com

“OZONA – Spiritualists say answers to coping with today’s fears, vexing behaviors and stressful issues can be found in past life regression. Problems people struggle to deal with everyday, ranging from eating disorders to depression, low self-esteem to anxieties and fears can all be traced back to something that happened decades or even centuries ago, in a past life, said Dayna G. Weissfeld, a nationally certified hypnotherapist and master of Reiki, the Asian touch therapy technique.”
