Celebrities using Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss
Over the years, society’s standards of beauty have drastically changed. Nowadays, a slim figure is considered to be the ideal body for a woman. Moreover, the media constantly propagates the belief that people who weigh less are happier and possess a more positive outlook in life. However, wanting to have a slim figure or losing weight does not always necessarily entail narcissistic purposes. Studies have proven that slim people or people with average-sized bodies are healthier while plus-sized people are generally more at risk of suffering from several illnesses like heart conditions and diabetes.
Celebrities, being always in the limelight, are faced with the constant challenge of appearing good in front of the cameras. Thus, most of them are in a perpetual journey of weight loss, dieting and exercising. But since traditional ways of losing weight sometimes do not work well for everyone, some celebrities have resorted to other means of losing weight, and that is through weight loss surgery. There was a time when liposuction, which is a type of cosmetic operation that removes fat from different parts of the body, was all the rage in Hollywood. While surgical means of losing weight no doubt yield effective and faster results, they often also result to complications. Moreover, going under the knife to slim down also requires maintenance, meaning, after being done with the operation, you will also have to observe proper diet and exercise to preserve your body.
But since its introduction, hypnotherapy for weight loss has been well-received by many, celebrities included. Although it is a rather unusual method compared to the other traditional ways of losing weight, it nevertheless guarantees effective results. What is more, weight loss hypnotherapy cost less and is a much safer alternative to surgical operations.
Hypnotherapy for weight loss involves the use of hypnotizing or entrancing the mind to direct it towards the goal of losing weight. To further emphasize the effectiveness that this therapy guarantees, some celebrities have offered their testimonials on how hypnosis has helped them lose weight naturally.
British singer-songwriter Lily Allen 27 years of age, daughter of actor Keith Allen is among those celebrities who have sworn by hypnotherapy. Lily has stated that she used to be confident about the way she looks. “I felt like it didn’t matter if I was a bit chubby,” Lily had said. But pressure from the media because of her status as a celebrity perhaps pushed her to attain a more attractive body.
This is achieved by instilling subconscious messages in clients’ minds to remind them to control their eating. Since most people aiming to lose weight often fail to do so because of laziness. Also techniques involved having clients connect exercise or other strenuous physical activities, like jogging, working out and dancing to happiness. Basically, programming clients’ minds to enjoy working out. That’s why in some statements, Lily Allen has remarked that after the hypnotism treatments, she suddenly ‘wants’ to go to the gym everyday because she feels bad otherwise.
"I just ‘want’ to get more toned and healthy. I'm really good about everything at the moment - I've never been happier,” Lily has stated. She has gone from size 12 to size 8 thanks to hypnotherapy for weight loss.
So many celebrities have turned to hypnosis for weight loss include singer and former Spice Girl member Geri Halliwell, model Sophie Dahl, former Philadelphia Eagles coach Chuck Clausen and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, the list goes on.
