What are You Really craving for?

If you are one of many people whose attempts to lose weight were sabotaged by cravings for sugary, salty, greasy, unhealthy food here is what you can do to change the faulty mental programming:

Step One. Develop craving awareness.
Remember, we don't crave food,  we crave love, comfort, security or peace.

Next time you have a craving, pause and become aware of what  are you really craving for. Take a moment to observe, to listen and learn  about you. Do you feel lonely, insecure, anxious, upset or angry?

Learn to be aware of the feelings you have repressed. Because when you become aware of them, you can let these feelings go.

Step Two. Breath through the craving.   

Take a minute or two to pay attention to your breathing. It doesn't matter whether your breath is short or long, deep or shallow. Just focus on your breathing and accept it as it is. Imagine or think to yourself, that with each out breath you exhale loneliness, insecurity, anger or fear. You can visualise a kettle with the steam coming out every time you exhale. The steam was trapped in the  kettle and all you have to do is to open the lid and let the steam out, breath it away breath after breath. Exhaling and letting go of the emotional heaviness, watching cravings shrinking and fading away.

Use these simple techniques to free yourself from cravings.

Look for more self-empowering tools in my next post.

Enjoy your Freedom to be in control of What you Eat, When you Eat and How Much you Eat.

I just love food

I often hear from my Weight Loss clients that they overeat only because they love food.
If you have a similar belief, you may consider letting it go after reading the following:

Have you ever seen coffee tasters? They don't need to have a big mug of coffee in order to appreciate its taste.

These people love coffee. They do. This is why they only need a sip of it to really enjoy the flavour and taste of it.
In order to have a slimmer and thinner body, you first must change your beliefs about food.
Because the change you are looking for in your body begins in your mind!

Here is what you can do:

1. Become aware of how you eat. Practice mindful eating to develop new healthy eating habits.
Next time when you eat, pay full attention to your meal. 
Engage all five senses to enjoy the food on your plate.
From the very first bite you take, really notice the flavour, the colours, the texture of you food. Smell it and take some time to really enjoy it.
Notice how much more time you have in between each mouthful as you place a fork and a knife down and drink some water, truly enjoying each mouthful.

2. Eliminate any distractions while eating. 

  • Avoid negative thinking and making decisions while having your meal.
  • Do not watch TV and stay away from your computer while eating. When you eat, you only focus on your meal.
  • Limit your eating areas at home to the kitchen or the dining room.

As you continue practising mindful eating, you will notice, that you feel comfortable and full with less food consumed.
Once you become aware that you are full and satisfied, you will push your plate of food away. You don't need it. You don't want it. There is plenty of food around you. There is always will be.

You will leave the table feeling comfortably full and in control.

3. Reprogram you mind by giving yourself the following suggestion:

"Nothing tastes better then my own freedom to be in control of what I eat, when I eat, and how much I eat"

Practice giving yourself this positive suggestion every night before you fall asleep for 21 days.

Remember that Your Weight Loss begins in the Mind.

Food trances and how to eat consciously

      • Are you constantly thinking and fantasizing about food?
      • Do you feel out of control?
      • Do you tell yourself “I will eat this big portion just this one time, and I will never do it again”? And do you do it again, and again? Do you feel guilty about this behaviour?
      • Is this true that when you stop eating, you feel overly full?
      • Do you eat when you angry, sad, fearful or lonely?

      Then, you are living in a “Food Trance”.

      Hypnosis helps you to brake the “Food Trance” and become a Conscious Eater.

      This is done by reprogramming your subconscious mind. You will think like thin and slim people do. You will develop a conscious awareness of what you eat, when you eat and how much you eat.

      With Hypnosis you will begin to view food as simply a fuel that is necessary for your body to function.

      • You will put dieting and self-sabotage behind you.
      • You will eat only when you are truly hungry, and stop when you are comfortably full.  
      • Using all your five senses you will develop a conscious awareness around the food you are eating.
      • you will eat only when you are hungry. 
      • You will stop eating when you are comfortably full.
      • You will take control over what you eat, when you eat and how much you eat.
      • You will find that your old obsessive ways with food no longer interest you.
      • Your fixation on weight will disappear.
      • You will find that you comfortably full and satisfied with less food in your stomach. 
      • Food will no longer be an emotional crutch. 
      • You will reward yourself with comfort, support, love you were looking for before without reaching for comfort foods.

      Before you notice it, those extra pounds of weight will literally melt away without sweat or stressing yourself away...

      Stay tuned for more!

      Emotional Eating 102

      1. We can’t become healthy, if we are focusing on illness.
      2. We can’t become abundant if we are focusing on poverty.
      3. We can never be happy with our body image if we are constantly obsessing about food.

      I would like to help you break this painful cycle by directing the healing process where it has started - within your mind.

      You get permanent weight loss with Hypnotherapy because we treat the cause, “emotional eating”.

      The feelings of fear, anger, insecurity, hopelessness, loneliness, sadness or boredom that cause you to turn to food to comfort yourself.

      Once those beliefs and feelings are replaced with new positive healthy beliefs and feelings of being in control, you will no longer reach for foods to comfort yourself. Late night eating and cravings are gone.

      You begin to think like a thin person. The weight starts to come off in just 3 sessions.

      If you want to Lose Weight and Keep it off forever, then make it better for yourself - book your question/answer session asap -
