Gastric band hypnotherapy became available as a weight loss option a few years ago and unlike some things that are popular for a while then gradually become less popular, this does not seem to be the case - as more and more people seem to be choosing this option. Sometimes because they know someone who has been successful in losing weight with this method or perhaps because having an actual gastric band is not an option that they feel comfortable with. Or perhaps they have seen media coverage of someone’s success story.
Whatever the reason for each individual choosing gastric band hypnotherapy, it’s still very popular - helping people to lose weight and enabling them to get on with their lives.
And when someone chooses to do something rather than feeling pressured into doing something, it helps them feel much more in control.
Most people will research gastric band hypnosis well before they go to see a hypnotherapist and when an individual decides that this option is right for them it can sometimes feel like a great relief for them; Especially having probably tried every different diet there is, they feel optimistic about becoming slimmer and feel happy about the thought of being able to do things that perhaps they haven’t been able to do for years!
Whether to choose gastric band hypnotherapy or other weight loss programmes?
Whichever option feels right for you, covering it from all angles can make it easier and more achievable.
Being in the right mindset, wanting to lose weight, and deciding to make some changes.
Doing practical things to make it easier to lose weight, such as eating from a smaller plate and using a small fork. Removing unhealthy snacks and foods from the house so you’re not tempted, after all, if it’s not there, it can’t call out at you to eat it!
Eating healthily and being prepared to try new foods will probably have you starting to enjoy foods that you may have never thought of trying.
Exercise: Choose exercise that can be enjoyed - the main thing is being physically active. It may just be going for a walk at first and you can change to something more physically challenging later.
Enlisting the help of others: Asking friends and family to help you with your goal of losing weight, by encouraging and supporting you.
Getting help from the professionals: There are lots of good books out there with nutrition advice and healthy tasty recipes in them. Why not take advantage of the hard work that people have put in preparing these?
Don’t be of afraid of asking for help… after all, we all need help at some stage in our lives!
