Hypnosis for Weight Loss and Healthy Eating

Are you obese?  Do you overeat?  Are you addicted to unhealthy foods?  If so, it's time to lose weight using hypnosis in a safe and effective way by changing your eating behavior.  Whether you live in Montgomery County, Bucks County, Delaware County, or prefer to do sessions virtually, Achieve Hypnotherapy can help you get slimmer, fitter and healthier.

Weight Loss with Hypnosis Therapy

Losing weight usually consists of following a traditional dieting system where you may lose weight while you are on the diet, but as soon as you stop the “diet”, you gain the weight back and sometimes gain even more weight.  It is estimated that 95 percent of all people who lose weight on a diet, gain it all back again.  Some people will gain even more and you probably know people that have gone through this vicious cycle.  

Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss is better than Diet systems that aren't permanent

Many programs that promote weight loss include a form of deprivation and/or denial (Medifast) and some involve counting calories (Weight Watchers) and others will deliver premade meals (NutriSystem).  These dieting methods program the mind to think about food all of the time.  So when you stop the diet, you are even more programmed to constantly think about food.  Diet systems ultimately fail because they don't deal with a person's mindset like we do with hypnosis. 

Most diets have you deny yourself “pleasure foods” like candy or chocolate or pizza.  Your brain fights against this new eating behavior.  How often do you consciously think to yourself, “Okay, It’s time.  I’m going to stop snacking or I’m going to just eat salad or I’m going to eat right or I’m going to exercise.”  After a short while, you go right back to your normal behaviors and your normal bad eating habits.

How Hypnosis Changes Eating Behavior

Hypnosis for weight loss starts with changing eating habits which are stored in the subconscious mind. Eating habits are like any other habit you develop over time like tying your shoes or the way you brush your teeth.  

Working with the subconscious mind is one of the most effective ways to begin eating healthy resulting in losing the weight you desire.  Imagine not even thinking about eating a piece of cake or a bowl of cereal.  Your mind knows those types of food are unhealthy, so your mind ignores them. 

Weight Loss Hypnosis Therapy

The process of hypnosis works by bypassing the conscious mind to make direct suggestions to re-program your subconscious mind.

If you consciously deny yourself something, you want it even more.  But, if you can eat less and eat the right type of food, you know you will be slimmer, fitter and healthier.  So, we work with the subconscious mind to change the programming to eliminate cravings and desires for unhealthy food.

The Three Protocols

We use 3 different protocols depending on your weight loss needs.  If you are obese and/or a Type 2 diabetic, then Hypnofasting is for you. The Virtual Gastric Band (VGB) protocol works if you tend to overeat and need to lose significant weight.  And, if you just need to eat healthier, lose a few pounds and get on a proper eating regimen, we use the Hypnosis for Health method.  You will find that either method is weight loss hypnosis that really works.  Get hypnotized to lose weight.

Hypnosis for Health

Woman celebrating weight loss

Let's discuss the Hypnosis for Health protocol.  The problem with most diets is the cravings, usually for unhealthy foods, does not go away.  Do you crave sugar, salty snacks, diet sodas and other foods and drinks that you know are not good for you?  

The reason you crave these foods is because you have been eating these same foods since your childhood.  You are conditioned to eat these foods.

Your subconscious mind thinks these foods are good for you since you have been eating them for years and years.  The Hypnosis for Health protocol works with the subconscious mind to accept changes that will have you eating less and eating healthy.

Many of us have been conditioned by our parents to finish your food and clean your plate.  You have done that so many times that your brain is wired to overeat.  

Using hypnosis, we can reprogram your subconscious mind to eat properly, eat the healthy foods and eat smaller portions.  Hypnosis is the best method for weight loss.

Virtual Gastric Band

So, what is it?

The Virtual Gastric Band for hypnosis weight loss a non-surgical technique that is a safe and effective protocol that uses the power of hypnosis to re-train your mind to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food and no real surgery is involved.  This protocol programs the brain to signal your stomach that it's full sooner and there is no need to overeat.

The VGB method is definitely NOT a diet and you know that diets only work in the short term.  VGB changes how you think about food and gives very safe, predictable results and the protocol allows you to eat what you want and enable you to feel comfortable with smaller portions of food.  

The weight loss protocol is not a diet because you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry, which are the usual issues that cause diets to fail.  You are left with a long-term solution to your weight control issues as the Virtual Gastric Band weight loss hypnosis effectively negates these issues.

A typical gastric band medical procedure reduces the physical size of the stomach and may achieve the same result as VGB, but the Virtual Gastric Band can be undertaken quickly and privately without the lengthy delay of scheduling a hospital visit and without costly, invasive surgery and no risks and no on-going medical treatments.

The VGB protocol is done in 4 sessions over a 4 week period.  Weight loss is monitored and each session is designed to build upon the previous week's results.  Goals are set and evaluated week by week.

Hypnofasting

Hypnofasting Book

Certified Hypnotherapist, Joseph Onesta, was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes 15 years ago.  Even though his doctor prescribed medication to control his insulin levels and had him eat a USDA balanced diet, his diabetes got progressively worse and he gained even more weight.  Because of his deteriorating health, Joseph developed the Hypnofasting protocol.

Eating Healthy and Intermittent Fasting

Joseph needed to change and he knew it.  After much research, he discovered the work of Dr. Jason Fung.  Dr. Fung introduced him to better ways of eating and the benefits of intermittent fasting.  Joseph authored a book about his journey, the Hypnofasting Program Guide.  

The book takes you step by step through Hypnofasting, a program emphasizing the Proper Human Diet along with intermittent fasting and integrated with hypnosis.  This combination makes losing weight and choosing a healthy lifestyle easy and effective.

Understand that "fasting" is not starving and most of us fast naturally.  Simply count the number of hours from your last meal the night before and the time of your first meal of the current day.  You are fasting if you calculate 12 to 14 hours between meals, which allows your body to burn unwanted fat.  Longer intermittent fasts can produce additional benefits by improving the balance of mind and body.

The Hypnofasting protocol requires more sessions than Virtual Gastric Band and Hypnosis for Health because it's a lifestyle commitment.  You will find it easy to maintain your ideal weight as your mind is realigned with your your desire for a new, healthy life.

Get started with the Hypnofasting Program by having a required free consultation with me.  I need to determine your commitment level and to establish how the Program will be administered for you.  Click here to schedule a free consultation.

I feel better, have more energy, and just feel like a new person

I must admit that I was a doubting soul going into this hypnosis to essentially focus myself once and for all to lose weight. I tried every kind of diet program out there, and regardless of the hype made by each one, they just didn't work for me. I often wondered about hypnosis and reached out to Tom for some help. I am real believer now in hypnosis as it truly has impacted my life with just two sessions and a little bit of focus on my part. I have lost in 5-weeks' time 35+ pounds with intermittent fasting, eating a keto diet with minimal carbohydrates, and walking every single day. I don't snack in-between meals especially after dinner, and really don't have a yearning any longer for chips, ice cream, breads, cakes, etc. ever since the hypnosis. And keep in mind, that I requested that Tom during his hypnotic sessions with me to get my sub-conscious mind thinking "no more carb-ladened snacks and such, but rather healthy foods. Now I feel better, have more energy, and just feel like a new person, and the weight loss is not over by any means for me. So thank you very much to my new friend Tom, the hypnosis guru. He is a such a nice individual, easy to talk with, and he really cares about helping people through any issues.

My experience with Tom has been great!

My experience with Tom has been great! I came to him at a loss on how to stick to a healthy diet in order to lose weight and curb the cravings that have always taken over and prevented me from losing weight in the past. I started with Tom two months ago and have lost 26lbs so far! After the very first session, I was able to immediately make changes and my whole outlook on food has changed! I no longer look for food that will fill my belly. I choose food that will nourish my body instead. It feels almost effortless bc I just simply do not want the junk food anymore. I was also an avid diet iced tea drinker. I would drink about 2 gallons a week. I now only drink water and my morning coffee. Processed foods and added sugars are a thing of the past and I owe it all to this process!

I struggled for years to give up drinking diet soda

I struggled for years to give up drinking diet soda. I drank it all day long. I saw Tom on September 10, 2018. I have not had a diet soda since. I wish I would have done it sooner. I also saw Tom to help me lose weight. I’ve lost 30 pounds. Not only has Tom and hypnotherapy helped me lose weight and give up Diet soda, it’s helped me with my everyday life. It’s helped me look at life differently. I can’t thank him enough.

Hypnotherapy was a wonderful experience

Hypnotherapy was a wonderful experience. Tom is a caring professional who puts you at ease day one. He listened to my concerns, developed a plan keeping my goals in mind the entire time, and helped me to execute a program to achieve my weight loss goals. 4 sessions later and 10 weeks in, I've lost 15 pounds and feel confident that I can continue to reach my total goal. Thank you Tom for all you did to help me! Tom puts you at ease and explains everything thoroughly. It is truly a very relaxing experience.

I wanted to lose weight

I reached out to Tom because I wanted to lose weight. I gained a significant amount of weight during the pandemic and while I was working from home, my eating habits took an unhealthy turn. I ate more often, snacked all day long, and always felt hungry no matter the time of the day. It was especially bad while I watched TV, seeing all the food commercials and watching people eat on TV. I needed to train my mind that I was NOT hungry and I reached out to Tom. Tom and I discussed my weaknesses and I wanted hypnotherapy to reinforce my mind that I was full and not hungry. Tom assured me this was a common problem and we got to work immediately with hypnosis. It's been about 6 weeks and I've lost 6 pounds. I don't feel the hunger pains and know sooner rather than later when I feel "full". I feel like after my hypnosis sessions I just "snapped out it". It was the reinforcement I need and I feel great. My goal is 10lbs, I view this as a Marathon and not a sprint and plan to be at my goal weight in late October. I highly recommend reaching out to Tom and set your weight-loss goals with hypnotherapy.
