If you've arrived at this page because you seem to have spent most of your life dieting, only to find that after a while you've gained back the weight you lost and some extra pounds. Then you can take comfort in realising that you are not alone
One of the problems with diets in that they require ongoing and constant determination, and as such many people who have trouble managing their weight feel like they are constantly fighting their eating habits.
Being told constantly about healthy food choices, portion size, food addiction, nervous eating, cravings, binges and the latest slimming plan, doesn't actually help, and in many cases can have the reverse effect, causing you to think constantly about food.
The weight management programme I offer is based on some simple observations, and one of those is that dieting does work, but only in the short term. For many people, once the target weight has been reached, they ease off dieting and go back to eating normally, and that's part of the problem, as what they were eating before wasn't normal.
Dieting alone will usually end in failure for most people as there are many other factors to be taken into consideration, and from my experience, dieting can leave people feeling sad and miserable. So a major part of the programme is helping you to be happy with who you are, both inside and out.
In many cases, food itself is never really the issue, it can be simply old engrained habits and thoughts, or it can be a misguided distracter, sometimes known as emotional or comfort eating, using food to cover up emotional issues and feelings. The trouble is that no amount of food is going to satisfy any hidden emotional issues.
None of us were born with the desire to overeat, if you watch a baby feeding on a bottle or being fed, it knows when its full, and if you try and feed it more food, it will spit it out. As we grow up we can become conditioned to having food used as a reward or as a punishment, or being made to feel guilty for not cleaning our plates.
Eventually, this behaviour overrides our natural internal voice that tells us when we are full, and as such we can gorge or overeat, unknowingly.
Changing your relationship with food and how you feel about yourself, is they key to transforming yourself permanently into a slim and healthy person, and as such the programme helps you address:
Together we will focuses directly on changing the behaviour at the root cause, as well as creating new habits. Hypnotherapy will also help deal with the underline emotional issues that are the cause of the overeating. So instead of relying on dieting and slimming programmes alone, we can work together to change how you feel about you, and how you think and act about food at a deeper level. As a result, you gain control over your habit and lose weight naturally.
When these habits are addressed at a subconscious level, you can regain control which allows you to achieve weight loss. As a result, proper nutrition and exercise can become a matter of simple choice rather than a constant internal struggle.
