Having a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 25 or more may indicate that you are overweight.
Being overweight is caused by eating too much and moving too little. If you eat high amounts of energy in fat and sugars but don’t burn this off through exercise and physical activity, the excess energy will be stored by the body as fat. Being overweight can be unhealthy and can lead to the following health conditions:
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- High cholesterol
Eating a well-balanced diet and exercising more can help to lose weight, however, what makes losing weight harder is the emotions we associate with food.
Do you struggle to lose weight, always attempting a different diet to find that you lose weight and then put it back on just as quickly?
Being overweight is a big problem for many people and whilst faddy diets and the cycle of yo-yo dieting focusses on what you put in your mouth, hypnotherapy focusses on changing how you feel about the food you eat.
Hypnotherapy will help you develop a more positive relationship with food and exercise and gain control over your eating habits. Hypnotherapy uses suggestions and visualisations which can help you gain control, not only of what you eat but also help you to enjoy the taste of healthy foods, encouraging you to stop craving fatty, sugary foods. This will give you more control over your other areas of your life too.
By changing your thinking patterns, and changing a negative relationship with food will help you to gain control over your eating habits and develop a new positive relationship with food and exercise.
Being overweight can affect your relationships and career and may lead to feelings of inadequacy or low self-esteem, depression or anxiety.
Hypnotherapy is a complementary therapy and should be used alongside a healthy eating plan and exercise program.
