Weight Loss You Don’t Mind

Browsing Posts published by admin

Most of us want to be fit and thin so that we look sexier, or fit into our clothes better.  But did you know you now have a better reason to stay fit and healthy?  The well being of your unborn baby.

A new study has shown a link between overweight and obese moms and a greater frequency of a preterm birth.  This also comes with other serious health problems from being born early.  And some of the study group had births as early as prior to 32 weeks.

From the study it appears that with overweight and obese women carry a 30 percent greater risk of a preterm baby.  Earlier than 37 weeks.  And the heavier you are the greater the risk.  For very obese moms the risk climbs to over double at 70%.

There is also a similar increased risk for early preterm birth.  that would be a birth earlier than 32 or 33 weeks.  And these risks increase for really obese women over that of overweight and just obese moms.

With the increased risk of a preterm baby comes what happens to the preterm baby.  Preterm babies have lower birth weight.  They have a higher incidence of morbidity.  So we’re talking about a higher death rate for these preterm babies.

The problem is getting worse.  It’s now shown that the most common cause of complications from pregnancy in most of the developed countries is the result of overweight and obese moms.  That’s a startling reflection on how the number of overweight and obese women have increased over the years.  In Canada it’s been reported that almost 30% of the women are overweight, and almost a quarter of the women are obese.  Pretty sad statistics about the state of health in the developed world.

Part of the problem lies with the assumption that pregnant moms are eating for two now.  And that is just not true.  If a normal diet consists of 1500 to 2000 calories, if you thought you were eating for two you might just end up eating 3000 to 4000 calories.  When in reality, as a pregnant mom, you only need to add about 300 calories onto your diet for your baby.  With all those extra calories, it’s no wonder there are so many obese and overweight pregnant moms.

But when you’re pregnant it’s probably not the right time to go on a food restricting diet.  So you should definitely get into shape prior to getting pregnant.  And after you are pregnant make really sure that you only increase your caloric intake by about 300 calories.

Take the time to get some free tips on how you can use your mind with weight loss through hypnosis to eliminate junk food from your diet so you can release your excess weight and feel great about yourself. Visit my website, HypnoticState.com and get your free self hypnosis course or ebook on how to use your mind correctly and learn how to lose weight with hypnotherapy weight loss to take control and set yourself free to enjoy your life.

This self hypnosis info is the same stuff I wrote in the book I co-authored called Real World Hypnosis, Insider Tips From The World’s Leading Hypnotists that can be found at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other booksellers.

Have you ever tried to change a habit of yours or even just a regular behavior that you do? It was difficult for you at best. You might have even given up on it before too long because you kept sliding back to your old ways. There’s a good reason for that, and I’ll tell you why.

As you read through the rest of this article you’re going to have a better understanding of how your mind works, and why you do the things that you do without thinking. These things are called habits. We create habits to help us get through the day. These habitual behaviors are responsible for most of the things we do without any conscious thought. Which hand you use to hold your knife, which foot gets your sock first, what thought pops into your mind when the phone rings. All pre programmed behaviors that have no reliance on any conscious decision making.

And all of that is a great benefit for you. If you were bogged down with having to make a choice with everything you do, you’d get even less done than you already do. So while our unconscious behaviors are being processed automatically, our conscious processes continue. We can think about what we’re going to do in the next few hours, who we need to speak with, what letter or email we need to answer. All the things that do need some decision making in order to respond properly.

We originally created those habits by learning the behaviors consciously. Think about the first time you put on a sock. You probably struggled getting the sock spread apart at the opening enough to get your toes inside. You might’ve even caught a couple of very little toes on the outside as the the rest of your little toes slid in. You might have rolled around on the floor as you lost your balance with your little leg up in the air.

That was all conscious effort. But getting dressed is a daily requirement. And you repeated this process daily on a conscious level. Until one day magically, you stopped thinking about it. You just did it! What happened was that the part of your mind that keeps your habits decided that this behavior must be important because you’re doing it all the time. And it’s the same. There’s no need to have to choose or make a decision about this behavior, it just needs to get doe. So that part of your mind allowed this behavior to become a habit. And it remained there.

So to make something a habit you need to do it repeatedly over and over again. In the case of putting on your socks, you might have to wait weeks for that to become a habit because you usually only put on your socks once a day. But what if you did it 10 or 20 times a day? would that make the habit creation faster? Yes it would! But that would be cumbersome and time consuming still. We could use our mind to make the process extremely fast.

It has been shown that when we imagine something with enough vividness our body’s response is the same as if we are actually doing it. So we can mentally rehearse any behavior and our body will practice doing that behavior as if it is actually happening. How do we do it vividly enough? With self hypnosis, that’s how!

Self hypnosis is a way of using your mind more effectively. Here’s a quick and simple example. Sit in a chair. Keep your arms and legs uncrossed, and make sure that you are comfortable. Breath in deeply two or three times and then close your eyes. Using your imagination, imagine yourself doing some behavior that you would like to make part of your routine. See yourself doing that behavior as vividly as possible. Add in the different senses to your imagined behavior. What it looks like, sounds like, smells like, tastes like, feels like. And keep imagining that behavior being performed by you over and over until you’ve spend about 3 minutes doing that. Bring yourself out of this daydreaming like state, and notice how comfortable you feel.

Take that process and do it a few more times during the day. Remember, repetition is the process that creates habits, so the more often you do this the quicker this behavior will become your new habit.

When we think of weight loss and how to accomplish it, we usually believe it works by the formula of food in, energy out. This should create a comfortable weight maintenance program. Or using an equation:

X Calories – X Activity = 0 gain/loss of weight.

This simplistic version is what we use when we diet. There is more to weight loss and weight maintenance than this simple equation. Because we are complex and constantly adjusting organisms.  If we are used to a certain amount of food coming in, then when we shift gears quickly our body might not respond the way we expected.  In addition there is also the attitude we have toward food and how it controls us.

Let me first explain about how our constantly changing body can affect our weight loss plans.  You, like most every other organism placed on this planet are designed to live.  You are programmed to live long enough to reproduce and create the next generation.  In the grand scheme of things that is all we humans are really designed to do.   Just accomplish that simple task of living long enough to be able to replicate.

So there is no mechanism in place to be skinny.  The struggle to survive is supposed to help us maintain a healthy enough existence to survive long enough to reproduce.  And since we reach puberty around 13 years of age, we really only need to survive for 13 or 14 short years.  Probably a little longer, so we can care for our young until they can fend for themselves.

Here’s the problem.  The struggle for survival isn’t what it used to be.  So you don’t exert that much energy to survive as we used to.  That means you have to create activity so that you don’t become overweight.  There is also another factor that comes into play that has to do with your genetic survival toolkit.

If our body senses a drop in calories it will respond by slowing down our usage of food supplies.  Your food is stored as fat, so when I say food supplies I mean that your fat usage drops down.  You can rev up the exercise rate, but if food usage or metabolism drops, it will be hard to lose weight.  That’s your survival toolkit.

The way around that survival mode is to eat enough food to keep your metabolism at a normal or increased level.  You certainly don’t want your metabolism to drop.  So it’s important not to adopt a drastic drop in calories like some of the more restrictive diets require.  Depending upon your frame size, age and gender you probably want to maintain somewhere around 1500- 2000 calories of food a day.

This is not as difficult to maintain as you may think.  Because mostly you have been eating in response to emotions and not the need for calories it becomes a matter of changing your attitudes, and emotional responses that revolve around food.  Food does not satisfy emotions, so you can continue to eat without feeling “full”.  Because the “full” feeling you are looking for is to satisfy the emotion.  A correct response to food is to feel physically full and satisfied.

Depending on how much out of shape your stomach has become, you can take back control of this mechanism and be free to live your life while your body finds equilibrium.  This happens when you focus on what you are eating and in what amounts.  This also requires that you set boundaries as far as where and when you allow yourself to eat and not eat.

All of these things can be accomplished on your own or with the help of hypnosis for weight loss.  Using these advanced tools for coming to terms with emotional eating and being freed from that driving force that serves no positive function is a very liberating experience.

Boy this internet stuff is a real distraction or a boon to our knowledge base.  I just read an interesting article about hypnosis for weight loss.  It had a bunch of things that I liked about it.  You can check it out here:

Is A Fasting Detox Important?

When anyone attempts to go on a diet, they are attempting to lose weight.  But not just any weight.  They are attempting to lose weight from fat.  Coincidentally, fat is where most of the poisons we ingest are stored.  Our body acts like a filter, and anything that we cannot metabolize, digest, break down and use in a way that sustains our life, we will store or get rid of.  Many of the poisons we ingest are so foreign to us, that our body doesn’t know how to deal with them.  So it is stored away in our fat cells.  So when we start to lose weight, and the fat starts to be dumped into our removal system to be excreted by our body, the poison is dumped into our body along with it.

Unintentional Detox Fasting

This weight loss then becomes an unintentional detox.  And if you are knowledgeable about detoxing you will be way ahead of the game.  There are specific actions that you can do that will assist you in detoxing. This will also assist you in fat loss.  This is a double barreled approach to weight loss.  Not only will you be able to lose weight, fat, and poisons, but you will be assisting your weight loss long after your detox program is over.  Because once the poisons are out of your system, it becomes easier to lose fat.

First off, go see your doctor and get his approval for any weight loss or detox program you wish to follow. I am not a doctor, and can only relate to you my own experiences with my cleansing fast and other weight loss programs.  I cannot and will not take your weight loss and body cleansing detox on as my responsibility.  You have to take responsibility for your own health and actions.  That’s only fair, because at the end of your program you will totally own your wonderful fit body.  You must supply your body with enough nutrition to keep yourself healthy and thriving.  The basis of this program is not to starve yourself, but to flood your body with nutrients and detox herbs that are necessary for vibrant health.  So it’s important to eat as much of the foods recommended as your body asks for.

Setting boundaries with food is important of course.  You know what I mean, what foods are right to eat and what foods are wrong to eat.  Well I was just reminded about setting boundaries with people as well.  And this is very important when it comes to weight problems with emotional eaters.

Other people can set off a negative emotional response that could trigger an eating frenzie that can sabotage any weight loss plan or lifestyle change.  So it’s important to make sure to remember to set boundaries, and remember that it’s you who is in charge of your life, reponses, and emotions.

I just read a neat blog that reminded me of this whole boundary setting thing.  You can read the whole post here:

Just a very simple example of what hypnosis is and how you can respond when you visit a competent and experienced hypnotist.

How Does Weight Loss Hypnosis Work?

Using hypnosis to help people lose weight is not about creating a zombie that will blindly follow instructions without using any conscious thought whatsoever. I know that is what many people think and hope for. They don’t want to be responsible for their own weight loss, because it’s been hard to follow through in the past. So what is scary about hypnosis to many people is actually what they really want. In essence they want someone to program them to automatically respond in a specific way so they don’t get sidetracked in their efforts to lose weight, be thinner, be able to wear a bathing suit and look sexy and great this summer.

Well all of that is possible but it won’t be achieved without your decided effort and understanding that it can be easy for you to avoid certain foods, in fact it can be a natural response to eat a normal sized meal. And what I mean by normal sized, is a meal that is healthy for a thin and fit person. So let’s get started in giving you some examples of how this is done.

Hypnosis Can Be Used In A Number Of Ways To Help With Weight Loss.

The first way is to remove unnecessary stress from your everyday life. This is the worries and concerns and added stress that make us feel uncomfortable. this negative feeling is sometimes responsible for us looking for a comforting agent. Since that comforting agent is often an extra helping of food, then that feeling alone will add a significant amount of weight. You know how this works, something to take our minds off of the discomfort. Well imagine what happens when that discomfort is lifted. If the need for comfort is gone, then we can avoid eating too much, or at the wrong times, and we can start building habits more appropriate for removing weight. So this can be the first step to weight loss using hypnosis.

What Do You Do When The Stress Is Gone?

So now we got rid of the excess stress using self hypnosis, what do we focus on next?  Building the habits of a healthy and fit person would be my best response. So, if a healthy person looks at food as fuel for their body and not something to deal with negative thoughts and feelings, we should use self hypnosis to start building better associations. You know, associations of pleasure when we eat when properly hungry. We can use self hypnosis to train ourselves back to the responses we were born with. Eating when we are just a little bit hungry and stopping when we are just a little bit full. If you can think of our hunger as it would appear on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being starving and ready to eat anything that comes close to our idea of food, and 10 being so stuffed that we have difficulty moving, then our ideal place to eat would be around the number 4 and the ideal place to stop eating would be around 7.

In Summary

These are the preliminary steps to retraining our minds using self hypnosis. Practice makes perfect. The idea in change is to start with something that you can accomplish and then moving it to the next level. Stay on track and you will find it easier to add to your success.

And I invite you to learn to do self hypnosis for weight loss. There is a nice introductory course in the techniques to get you started at this self hypnosis for weight loss link.

2 New Studies indicate that hypnosis is effective for people looking to lose weight.

The most recommended site for weight loss hypnosis information is here:
Weight Loss Hypnosis

There was a recent New England Journal of Medicine article about how your life span is determined by your waist band. If your waist is 2″ larger than your hips, you decrease your average lifespan by a couple of years. And your lifespan continues to decrease as your waist size increases.

This seemed to have an interesting affect on folks who heard it. They now know that they certainly want to lose weight because it will affect the length of their lives. But I don’t think this will help people create any greater changes in their behavior than before this report came out. Knowing that smoking decreases your life hasn’t stopped people from starting or continuing to smoke, in my opinion. So I don’t expect this new information to make any major changes in people’s weight.

Certainly it appears important for to have a healthier life, but if the negative feelings of being out of shape, and overweight, hasn’t gotten you started yet in getting slimmer, I doubt that the future bad health risk will make it easier or more important for you to begin. You just have to focus on all the tools you already have. They are the most powerful motivators that you have. Knowledge is nowhere near as powerful as emotions. Emotions are very easily created and maintained using your imagination. So get started right now.

All that is required to get started is a desire to make changes consistently. As you do so you create new habits, that become easy to follow. Hypnosis is the King at quickly making habits and maintaining habits,so get started with a hypnosis program to amp up the motivation and quickly transform your life into the one you deserve.
