Rapid weight-loss - myth or truth?

When it comes to losing weight, there have certainly been a great number of diets and exercise plans over the years which promise to shed the pounds quickly. However, many of these diet plans and workouts do not take full hold and most people who try tend to either fail early in the process or they lose some weight only to gain it back again. 

One of the reasons that many people do not succeed is that the weight itself does not come off in stages that promotes positive reinforcement. While this may be due in part to the mistaken belief that skipping a meal or working out extra hard means that more weight is dropped, the truth is that permanent weight loss is created by a combination of diet and exercise over an extended period of time.

However, is rapid weight-loss truly possible or is it just a marketing myth used to sell products? 

What is rapid weight-loss?

The truth is there is such a thing as rapid weight-loss that may be permanent. However, this does depend on your view of what “rapid” means. Generally speaking, it takes time to pack on the pounds, so naturally it will take a little time to shed them as well. 

The most rapid form of weight-loss is water weight which is what many of the false diet programs promise. Shedding off the water weight will only mean it comes back again just as soon as you properly hydrate again. You can lose the fat in a fairly rapid fashion and safely as well if you follow a proper diet, eat the right foods and avoid the ones that keep the extra pounds on you. 

However, to manage maintaining your diet of eating healthy while exercising to build up the muscle tissues so that they can assist in burning away the fat is not going to be easy. In order to accomplish that, you will need to change not only your food, but your mindset as well. Here is where hypnosis can be a great ally in your fight to lose weight. 

How hypnosis can help you lose weight 

For many decades hypnosis has been used to help people lose weight as well as overcome many other conditions as well. While hypnosis has yet to be fully understood, what it does do is help focus the mind and creates conditions that make it easier to accept the new diet. 

The battle to lose weight is not just a matter of buying the right food, but having the mental ability to adjust to the new diet program and stick to it. Many people fail because they are so used to eating the wrong foods that it becomes habit forming. In order to break that habit, hypnosis gets inside the mind itself to re-route the patterns of the brain so that the habits are shattered. Once that occurs, it becomes far easier to eat good, healthy foods and reject the junk food that so many people derived emotional satisfaction from for many years.

Using hypnosis in the right way can help establish a new diet quickly and have you losing the fat in the proper manner.
