When feeling stuck, do something

A growing body of studies shows that, when it comes to losing unwanted fat, hypnosis is an extremely effective tool. If you live in Gold Coast, clinical hypnotist Greg Thompson has the skills that will make a difference.

But even with the help of Greg and his techniques, losing weight takes time, especially if you have a lot of kilos to shed. That can be discouraging, especially because, in our well-established culture of overeating, you will face constant temptations to feed your face.

Everywhere you look, food is being waved at you, especially the sugar and fat-filled foods that are the worst for you. Walk down the street, and you pass fast food places. Turn on the television, and the ads are filled with tempting, high-calorie delights.

And, of course, you have your own, well-established habits, situations and feelings that trigger a craving to eat.

Your hypnotic sessions will confront those cravings and blunt them, and you will learn trance skills that will make a huge difference over the long run.

But still, it will take time, and the cravings will sneak up on you.

When that happens, the thing NOT to do is to just sit there and hope the urge to eat will go away.

The best response to a craving is not to try to ignore it because that just makes it stronger. Instead, take action. Get up and do something. Fill that time with something besides just thinking about how you would love a snack.

Take a walk. Call a friend. Vacuum the carpet. Lift some weights. Maybe best of all, since Greg has probably given you some training in self-hypnosis, put yourself into a relaxing trance. By the time you emerge from that trip into yourself, the urge to eat will have faded away.

So when the urge to eat tries to snuggle up to you, don’t just sit there. Do something, just about anything, until the urge goes away. And the more often you do that, the weaker the craving to eat will become. Eventually, it won’t be there at all.
