Hypnotism 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.  

Hypnotism 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 Hypnotism For Weight Loss Changes Eating Behavior

Hypnotism 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.

Eating Healthy and Intermittent Fasting (Hypnofasting)

Life Without Obesity

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 Onesta Process.

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, Life Without Obesity.

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

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, and this allows your body to burn unwanted fat.  Longer intermittent fasts can produce additional benefits by improving the balance of mind and body.

Hypnosis for Weight Loss Success Stories ...

I No Longer Fight With My Inner Self


Nan G.

If will power alone was the key to successful weight loss, than we would all be thin! I had done Weight Watchers, GOLO, and Intermittent
Fasting, all with little success. Weight Watchers allows all foods which leads to constantly being exposed to your triggers. GOLO is actually a low carb, 1000 calorie diet and you are hungry. Intermittent fasting for me was fast for 16 hours and gorge/graze for 8 hours. Then I did Hypnotherapy. Now I no longer fight with my inner self about when and what to eat but truly know the rules of proper eating. I am consistently eating good food at the right times and seeing results. I am not dropping 10 pounds a week but consistently losing 3 pounds per week without hunger and anxiety and inner struggles. YES, it works, and Tom is excellent at what he does. More importantly, I am not DIETING to lose a certain amount of weight so that I can eat all the foods that caused my problems in the first place. Each time I eat, I reinforce healthy eating and feel satisfied. Think of all the money these other diet plans cost and realize what a value hypnotherapy is!

I am Down 10lbs and Maintaining the Weight Loss!


Linda B

Tom is really comforting and kind. My hypnosis was peaceful and truly helped me with not only my weight loss, but my anxiety and stress levels. I am down 10lbs and maintaining the weight loss!

New Perspective on Eating


Caroline G.

I sought out hypnosis because I was frustrated with my weight loss journey, or lack of weight loss I should say. What I ended getting was a new perspective on eating and how to treat my body. Tom's sessions helped me realize that I am worth being mindful of what I consume. They also increased my self-esteem and added some new tools to manage my anxiety. I am excited to continue this journey with Tom!

Helped Control My Diet


Len V.

I have met with Tom 3 times & it has helped me control my diet. More importantly he has helped me with my golf game. Tom has helped me find a calmness when I desperately needed it during my round. I would highly recommend calling Tom if you have issues you would like to change in your life.

I wanted to lose weight


Kathy P.

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.

My experience with Tom was great.


Theresa O.

My experience with Tom was great. I was a bit apprehensive going at first but, after meeting and talking with Tom he made me feel very comfortable. The sessions were very helpful in my weight loss journey and as of now, I have lost several pounds. I do not crave unhealthy foods that were my down fall. His techniques were amazing and I would highly recommend Tom and thank him for his support.
