This guy had a PhD., had experienced his own challenges and hardships in life - coming out of it through the power of hypnosis, and was a self-proclaimed "rich" man selling his books (one entitled, "I can make you thin!"). I was sitting in anticipation of learning something new, of opening my mind to a cutting edge technique, of being challenged....I ended up just more frustrated and confused. It was as if the audience was already under a spell before they even got to the studio. He did nothing to show hypnotherapy works for weight loss except provide some testimonials (there was no research, no decent explanation, and no attention to the other reasons we gain weight). He talked about eating slowly (something nutritionists tout every day, I'm sure) and then guided the group in a visualization exercise.......that was it. All the while, the audience was ooohing and aahhhing over his wisdom and message.

So I'm going to give you the "Simple Weight Loss Facts" (based upon decades of scientific research...I know....not sexy, but it is what it is).
To lose fat you must consume less calories than you burn. If the body needs approximately 800 calories just to "be" (i.e. if you just sat on the couch all day) and you are taking in 1500 calories a day...you must find a way to burn over 700 to loose fat. Hint: there is 3,500 calories in ONE pound of fat (crappy, eh?). So to lose one pound of fat a week (suggested healthy weight loss rate) you have to find a way to avoid or burn (or both) 3,500 cal/ week. Try smaller servings, cutting out the empty calories, or eating more vegetables and less meat while adding 20 - 30 minutes of walking a day...that'll do it!
|Don't be fooled by the promises of fast results or the offering|
of secrets you may not have heard. I promise you, you have
heard it all and know everything you need to know....or your money back!
To lose fat you must move your body. Physical activity, although many try to avoid thinking about it and focus on dieting, is a necessity (and I'm not even going to get into all the health benefits it offers). The larger muscles used (i.e. the big butt muscles and leg muscles) the more calories you will burn. The rule to this is easy...if you have a bend in the knee - nothing extreme - you are using more larger muscles. So try including a little hill in your walking routine OR pick up the pace.
..........................................that's it. There is NO secret to weight loss. I'm sorry for any dissapointment this has caused.
I purposefully did not add the health benefits to various food choices (i.e. processed vs. whole foods) or the amazing benefits of physical activity. This is all about fat loss.
