Changing eating behaviors can be achieved by hypnosis and result in dropping some unwanted pounds. When combined with a behavioral weight- management plan, hypnotherapy can have the strongest effects on weight loss. By addressing the subconscious mind, hypnosis can work on feelings and patterns of brain waves that want to motivate the person to eat healthy, rather than just think they should. Hypnosis can help people distinguish between processed food and real foods. Suggesting that the mind focus more on fitness and health rather than just weight loss can result in positive results.
