You could benefit from hypnotherapy if you engage in emotional eating. You might feel the urge to eat even when you’re not physically hungry, and it’s often triggered by stress, boredom, or anxiety. Emotional eating might be a way to comfort yourself when feeling down. It might feel like a way to fill the void you’re feeling inside. And it’s a way to numb the emotions you don’t want to feel.
If you’re struggling with emotional eating, know you’re not alone. It’s a common issue that many people struggle with. But there is hope. Hypnotherapy is one of the best ways to help with emotional problems. In addition to using hypnosis to create better habits, you will also experience emotional healing on many levels.
Hypnosis is safe and effective adjunctive therapy to aid weight loss, according to a 2021 review. A 2020 study showed that hypnosis could lead to weight loss and significant changes in leptin levels in obese people, a hormone that helps control food intake. In a 2018 randomized controlled study, regular self-hypnosis users reduced their caloric intake and lost significantly more weight than those who did not use the technique. The hypnotherapy group lost an average of 9.6 kg over one year, compared with 5.6 kg in the control group. On average, someone who learned hypnosis but didn’t practice it regularly lost 6.5 kg.
How does Hypnosis for Weight Loss Work?
Hypnosis can help you overcome your cravings and eat healthier. There is research to support this idea. For example, a study published in the International Journal of Obesity found that people who underwent hypnosis for weight loss ate fewer calories and lost more weight than those who didn’t.
When you’re in a state of hypnosis, your mind is more open to suggestions. So, if you’re given suggestions that promote healthy eating and exercise habits, it can be easier to adopt them.
Hypnosis can also help you let go of any negative thoughts and emotions holding you back from losing weight. For example, if you have a history of yo-yo dieting or have been unsuccessful, hypnosis can help you release any negative thoughts and emotions that keep you from reaching your goals.
Self-Esteem and Body Image
Self-esteem can be negatively affected by body-shaming by family, peers, and popular media news. According to a survey, about half of 13-year-old girls in America report being dissatisfied with their bodies. That number rises to about 80% by the time a girl is 17 years old, and about one-fourth of U.S. male children and adolescents report being dissatisfied with their body shape.
Additionally, many people with compulsive eating-related behaviors report shame and guilt, contributing to lower self-esteem. During hypnotherapy, the therapist helps the person improve their self-esteem and view of their body. Methods used to achieve this include hypnotic suggestions, regression, positive affirmations, etc.
