Wake Forest University in America conducted a study of which the aim was to find a safe weight loss method for the elderly.
Their research showed that not only did hypnotherapy help to shed unwanted pounds, but it also it increased life expectancy.
Lead author Kyla Shea explained that there were far fewer deaths in the group of participants who lost more weight compared to the group who did not. “Our data suggests that people should not be concerned about trying or recommending weight loss to address obesity-related health problems in older adults.”
The study was conducted over a period of 18 months and incorporated 318 people over the age of 60. The participants who were given a weight loss programme lost an average of 10.5 pounds and had a lower mortality weight compared to those in the other group who received no programme.
