January is a really popular time for weight control products and services. Whether you’re reading this post in January or at any other time of the year, there is no shortage of people looking online for help with their weight control goals. A vast majority of new year’s resolutions are related to weight loss. If you want to master weight control so that you can hit your goal and reach it, you’ll find a number of products on the market that are geared to you.
Weight Control Resolutions
Weight control related resolutions can put you on a diet, have you joining a fitness club, have you buying gym equipment. But if weight control has been an ongoing and uphill battle for you for many years, maybe it’s time to consider making an impact on your relationship with food. Maybe diets just aren’t going to “cut it”
Food and Hypnosis
Self hypnosis and NLP techniques can help you master your food-driven behaviours so that too much food or the wrong types of food are not going to cause you problems that result in the inability to control your weight.
The keys to weight control exist in eating and exercise. Calories consumed and calories expended through activity will impact your weight control abilities. Through neuro linguistics, you can be trained to automatically slow down with your eating patterns and be more motivated to exercise. The results will motivate you even further --- perhaps toward a whole new lifestyle that becomes second nature rather than the struggle that temporary diets create.
With help, you can also overcome poor eating habits such as: eating too quickly, eating when stressed, eating when upset, etc. You can learn to establish new patterns and start to see results.
For people who find that diets don’t work, this often has to do with emotional issues surrounding eating. Even if many take weight off, they do so only temporarily because they don’t address the behaviours and habits that cause them to overeat. NLP for weight control can help. You can download weight loss recordings or make an appointment with a skilled hypnotherapist who can help you.
Those who feel that they can't stop eating junk food can benefit from changing that fundamental belief. Diet is within control, as you select the food that you eat every day, when cooking meals, or when engaged exclusively as an eater. You can quit the junkfood habit using an anti-willpower approach.
Many people focus on their willpower in order to overcome poor dietary choices. However, this approach is counterproductive because mental processes, emotional responses and behavioural follow through are not quite so simple. Relying on willpower works against your internal belief system that you deeply desire the food, and that it is difficult for you to quit the bad habits.
An anti-willpower approach completely avoids the use of will to force behavioural responses. Willpower is exhausting because it requires mental focus and intense effort in order to succeed. Why struggle with yourself when you can work through the problem by changing the underlying belief system working against your efforts.
Willpower is not sufficient because you have a subconscious will as well as a conscious one. The realm of the subconscious mind is a powerful influence on your behavioural responses as well as your automatic patterns of habit. Ideally, you can work within this realm in order to overcome you tendency to make poor food choices.
The subconscious mind has will that is greater than conscious willpower because it is backed by deep rooted belief systems. Amongst the most troublesome is the emotional connection you may have to sweets, crisps, and processed foods. Consider the occasions in which these types of foods are present. They are part of celebrations, rewards, and occasions that are closely linked to enjoyment.
Stop Eating Junk Food
You can change the patterns of behaviour that lead you to make poor choices by changing the way that you think and feel about what you eat on a subconscious level. A self hypnosis recording can help, and Discover Food As Fuel is an excellent session that can help you reach your goals.
Some may prefer to see a professional in a one-to-one session, and this approach works well, too. You can Avoid Poor Dietary Choices with the right guidance and support
Overcoming a chocolate addiction can be very challenging, and the problem can be underestimated. Dependence on any substance whether it is drugs, alcohol, or something as innocent as candy should be treated as more than a mere habit. Abuse occurs when portions grow out of control and you have the feeling that you have no control over your impulses.
Those suffering from this underestimated condition know the ramifications of the addictive problem. The trouble with the condition is the availability of the candy. It isn't illegal and it is readily available in many stores and in many homes. Excessive intake of the sweet treat can be very problematic and it should be treated with great concern.
Those who have the tendency to think about the candy excessively may have an addictive problem with it. The tendency to immediately seek this treat whenever you feel anxious, nervous, sad, or any other negative emotion can be very strong, and the process of thinking about when and where you can find relief by eating the sweets is very influential on your behaviours.
The drive to overcome this addictive behaviour may be great but the power of the subconscious mind is greater. Somewhere along the way, you have managed to make a deep-rooted connection between chocolate and pleasure. Considering that the candy has the same effect on the brain as falling in love does, there is little wonder where the connection begins.
It is important to keep in mind that you are not craving the candy; you actually want the chemical response that occurs in the brain. There are many other ways to achieve the point of chemical bliss aside from eating sweets. Getting this notion in your mind—that you can be happy without chocolate—is an important first step in recovering.
The help that you need is in your subconscious mind. You merely need a guide to help you along the path of recovery. A self-hypnosis recording like Stop Overeating offers the guidance necessary to overcome this addictive problem.
Many people want to stop overeating in order to address serious health problems including diabetes and obesity. Even though the drive to quit eating too much is strong, willpower often falls short. This leads to significant feelings of frustration. Dieting can be very challenging because the mind is naturally wired to be anti-diet.
Compulsion to eat excessively can be very powerful because the act is fundamental to survival. You need to eat in order to function properly; go without eating long enough, and you perish. There is little wonder why the subconscious mind fights so hard to undermine your dieting attempts.
The pattern of trying to quit excessive eating followed by failure leads to deep rooted feelings of inadequacy and frustration. In many cases, people seek comfort from food, making it easy to seek food for comfort in other areas of your life.
The pattern of emotional eating leads to the tendency to follow the wrong cues to determine when to eat. Instead of eating when you are hungry, you reach for food when you want to change your emotional state. This is a very difficult pattern to break, especially on the conscious level.

Many people need help to stop overeating. Following proper diet and exercise guidelines can be challenging in the quest to develop a healthy lifestyle. In order to quit poor habits and adopt an anti weight gaining routine, it is necessary to engage your mind in the process. This is a healthy first step to weight management.
Thought and Weight Loss
Weight loss begins in the mind. Those who want to lose weight need to make significant changes in their patterns of habit. This begins with changing thought patterns, especially in the realm of the subconscious.
Consciously changing the way that you think about food is very difficult considering the nature of the problem with overeating. Many people have spent a lifetime developing a relationship with food that is comforting. Changing eating habits must begin with changing the relationship you have with food.
Subconscious Support to Stop Overeating
Your subconscious mind is a valuable resource that has much to offer in your efforts to overcome the habit of over eating. This is especially helpful when dealing with the subconscious connection to food for comfort and security. Hypnosis and neuro linguistic programming help to create new connections in the subconscious mind.
Reprogramming the subconscious mind is particularly effective because the subconscious mind controls automatic behaviours. Your habits stem from the processes at work in the subconscious. You do not have to put conscious effort into your daily habits since they occur automatically.
Relating to Food
As you begin to relate to food in new ways, you begin to recognize that food is fuel. It is not comfort or companionship and it should not be a source of security. You enjoy healthy meals for the benefits they offer for your body and overall health.
Stop Overeating Support
One such self hypnosis recording is Debbie Williams’ ‘Stop Overeating’. Debbie's recordings use both hypnotherapy and NLP to retrain the mind at both conscious and unconscious levels and carry a full guarantee. You will need to listen repeatedly for best effect. Debbie overcame her own personal battles with an eating disorder many years ago and now has more than ten years of clinical experience helping people with such issues as bulimia, anorexia, binge eating disorder, weight control and overeating.
There are a number of tried and tested methods to help someone to eat a sensible balanced diet, to stop overeating or stop binge eating. If you were to closely follow the following regime it would almost certainly work for you:
• Only eat when you are hungry
• Eat slowly, very slowly, and always put the knife and fork down while you are chewing. Really focus your mind on the taste of the food.
• Eat whatever you want to
• Just eat when you eat, don’t watch TV or read a newspaper whist eating.
• Stop eating when you are full
These are proven methods to help someone eat well. They do have some drawbacks, though.
• It is very important to eat breakfast every day, so what if you are not hungry at breakfast time?
• How do you get into the habit of eating slowly?
• The idea of eating whatever you want to seems bizarre to those who overeat. Wouldn’t this make overeating and binge eating more likely? (no, by the way)
• How can you have a social meal with the family, or a business lunch, if you are focussing only on the food?
• How do you know when you are full?
• How do you stop overeating when you are full?
Eating well as a way of life
Some people do get their heads around the principles above and are very successful. Many others, however, try to adopt these principles but find themselves slipping back into old habits, and it seems to them that trying to eat this way was just another ‘diet’ that didn’t last. What many people need, to stop them from overeating and to start eating healthily, is help.
Stop overeating: How self hypnosis can help with over-eating problems
Overeating is a habit, and hypnosis is brilliant at dealing with habits. It deals with them at an unconscious level, using suggestion, relaxation, visualization, and a host of other things that have been proven to help people change these habits. Some self help recordings to stop overeating also use NLP techniques which more consciously ‘train’ your mind to begin to create the sort of outcome that you desire.

OK, here’s a brilliant technique for reducing or eliminating any pain you may be experiencing. This works, I have done it with many clients, and also on myself, from time to time, but before we start.
Go to the doctor’s
That’s the number one tip for pain relief. If you are in pain then for goodness sake seek qualified medical assistance. It would be silly to use self hypnosis to get rid of a constant chronic headache if that chronic headache was a sign of something more serious...

Just covering myself here but if you have a slipped disc then self hypnosis techniques to get rid of pain are going to be of limited use!
Here it is then, Self Hypnosis For Pain Relief
Now I don’t know what your idea of self hypnosis is, but my definition is quite broad as I think everyone is already in a trance of one sort of another. For the purposes of this exercise simply think of self hypnosis as a way of relaxing creatively.
Do this in a time and a place when you aren’t likely to be disturbed, sitting down comfortably with your back well supported and your feet planted firmly on the ground and you hands relaxed in your lap. If you are unable to sit down for some reason then just get as comfortable as you can.
Select A Number
Think about the pain you currently feel and give it a number between 1 and 100, 1 being zero pain, 100 being excruciating agony. From now on we will refer to the ‘pain’ as the ‘feeling’
Look Around You
For the purposes of this I am going to assume that you will be doing this self hypnosis technique indoors. Anyway, look around you and notice what is in the room. In detail, If it is a room you are very familiar with you might think you know what is around you but look again as if you are looking for the first time.
Close Your Eyes
Obviously read this through first before you do it, otherwise you aren’t reading these words because your eyes are still closed!
Anyway, close your eyes and see the room, in your imagination, as if your eyes were still open, where the furniture is, the colour of the walls, the floor, the ceiling etc. Do this for about 30 seconds in a relaxed manner. Then open your eyes and look at the room once more. This time look for what you weren’t necessarily aware of before, the direction the light is coming from, the shadows. Look around and behind you.
Now close your eyes again so that you can begin to build a more detailed inner ‘picture’, or, as it is more usually called, memory.
Step Out Of Your Body
In your imagination, that is. Float to about ten feet in front of yourself and look back at yourself sitting in the chair. If something would be intervening (like a wall, for example), then just see straight through it as if it wasn’t there. See as much detail as you can, what you would look like from that direction, what the room would look like from that direction, what you would be able to see behind the ‘you’ sitting there ten feet away in the chair, the folds in the material of your clothes etc etc.
Once again, only in your imagination... See what you would look like, and what the room would look like, from ten feet away from the right of the ‘you’ sitting in the chair. You would be able to see the right side of your head and body, and the room would look different from that perspective, you would be able to ‘see’ different things.
So that you are now imagining what you would look like from ten feet behind yourself. Once again, take time to fill in the details. Then do the same from ten feet from the left
Repeat The Procedure From Further Away
Now repeat the entire procedure from about thirty feet away, in your mind’s eye.
Float Up And Above
Now imagine you are fifty feet above yourself, looking down through the building as if there were no roof and no ceiling in the way. See yourself sitting down there in the chair, see the room from this new perspective.
Float Up And Away.
So now float upwards in your imagination so that the little ‘you’ down there in that room becomes more and more distant. See the town and or countryside around the building, and keep going, until the building itself is just a dot, until the land drops away so that you can see the horizon curve all around, until the earth itself becomes a shrinking blue, green and white ball, until you are surrounded by the vastness of space and thousands of distant, shining stars.
Then check what number the ‘feeling’ is now. Typically the number will have reduced, sometimes even down to zero...
OK, so it got a bit poetic towards the end but you get the general idea.
Get Someone To Help You
It can often be very helpful to have someone talk you through this process. Either way, do it softy and gently and take your time. It gets easier and easier with practice so be gently persistent.
This Often Works, I Have Used It With Dozens Of Clients
The first time I came across this disassociation technique was about twelve years ago during a hypnosis and NLP course. He had left the room because of a migraine headache and was standing outside, thinking of going home to lie in a darkened room. One of the trainers, Michael Breen, noticed my friend was in pain and just casually talked him through this process, it took about five minutes. At the end of the five minutes my friend’s migraine had totally vanished, to his total surprise. You may need to spend a fair bit more time than minutes, or, you may not...
I am an NLP Trainer and a hypnotherapist with more than ten years clinical experience and I work in Harley Street, London, England. Over this time I have seen more than 5000 clients and have helped many people to resolve a wide variety of issues.
