I have been doing a deep dive into the latest research into food addictions and obesity, because while hypnotherapy can help you drop excess weight, there are other factors that need to be taken into consideration to make it easier for you to stick with a new eating plan for the rest of your life.
The new science research is mind boggling and it really is astounding that sugar especially was ever allowed to become so commonplace in our food chain.
Sugar’s addictive qualities are well documented and like heroin or cocaine, the only real way to get free of its effects is to eliminate it completely and go through withdrawal.
I’m now on Day 16 of my sugar and flour elimination eating plan and I feel so good. Last night at a night out at the theatre, a friend had brought chocolates for us all to enjoy. Normally, I would have taken a couple and been consumed with thinking about when I could get more, did someone take more than me, how can I get more and I would have missed the entire show because of my sugar fixation. And I’d have been still craving more today, cursing myself for eating what I did and wanting more. A vicious never ending cycle.
Last night, while I was tempted for a few minutes, I simply said, I don’t eat that, its not my food and I was free from thinking about it at all.
There’s a phrase in AA, one drink is too much and one drink is never enough. For some people sugar and flour are exactly the same. The brain science is compelling. For me, one chocolate is too much and the whole world’s chocolate is not enough. I know because I’ve tried to eat it all in the past.
I am now hard at work on creating a new Weight Release for Life programme that combines the science I’ve been researching with hypnosis. I can’t wait to share it with you xx
And for those of you that need some inspiration right now, here are my best Weight Release articles:
