Brain tweak for weight loss

The Tribune (NZ) - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

Tra­di­tional meth­ods for los­ing weight can prove in­ef­fec­tive and ex­pen­sive.

Once the dis­ci­pline of a diet or diet clinic is re­moved, the weight creeps back on and the di­eter of­ten be­comes heav­ier than be­fore. Giv­ing up smok­ing has been found to com­pound the weight-loss prob­lem as food may get sub­sti­tuted for cig­a­rettes.

‘‘The prob­lem with nor­mal di­et­ing is that the mind hasn’t fully ac­cepted re­spon­si­bil­ity for self-man­age­ment, for bet­ter liv­ing and wiser food choices, ‘‘ says Jenny Hudgell of All About You Hyp­nother­apy. ’’It’s al­ways go­ing to be a bat­tle as some­how the brain feels dis­con­nected to the hand and mouth.’’

All About You Hyp­nother­apy pro­vides an al­ter­na­tive treat­ment, The Vir­tual Gas­tric Band pro­gramme, with con­tin­u­ous long- term suc­cess. This is the only hyp­nother­apy plan tri­alled through Hull Univer­sity in the UK. Through­out the ex­ten­sive tri­alling it had a 95 per cent suc­cess rate and proved that weight loss starts at a sub­con­scious level.

‘‘Weight loss re­ally should start by re­train­ing the brain. It takes a re­set­ting of at­ti­tudes and mindset to achieve per­ma­nent weight loss. Our Vir­tual Gas­tric Band ses­sions pro­vide the men­tal pro­gram­ming to make changes at a foun­da­tion level.’’

Vir­tual Gas­tric Band Ther­apy is a sug­ges­tion un­der hyp­no­sis for bet­ter per- sonal dis­ci­pline and self-man­age­ment, help­ing to re­duce the client’s ap­petite and make bet­ter food choices.

A four-ses­sion weight loss pro­gramme us­ing Vir­tual Gas­tric Band and other self-man­age­ment tech­niques has been found to lit­er­ally change the di­eter’s way of think­ing and there­fore be­hav­ing.

‘‘The real weight loss bat­tle is all in your mind. Eat­ing habits are deeply in­grained in your sub­con­scious and hyp­nother­apy can re­ally help you over­come these old habits.’’
