The Changing Landscape of Weight Loss

Anyone who is attempting to lose weight or gain control over binge eating has most likely noticed the new drugs for type 2 diabetes and to lose weight.

Ozempic, Manduro, and others are all the rage, especially in Hollywood and other areas where the cost is no concern. However, for the average person, the drugs are not only expensive but can be dangerous, and the results are not permanent.

These drugs work by mimicking a naturally occurring hormone. As those hormone levels rise, the molecules go to your brain, telling it you’re full. It also slows digestion by increasing the time it takes for food to leave the body. This is similar to the effect of bariatric surgery. 

Unfortunately, these drugs can have unpleasant side effects. Also, as with bariatric surgery, many people regain the lost weight, and the makeup of the weight gain tends to be more fat than muscle, creating a slower metabolism.   

In my practice using hypnotherapy for weight control, I have many new clients attempting to get off the drugs and maintain the weight loss. 

With my weight loss program, we work to make the changes permanent. Losing weight can be difficult, but the most challenging part is changing the underlying cause of unhealthy eating and making those changes part of a healthy lifestyle. If a person doesn’t change their behavior permanently, they will regain the weight.

People are conditioned to overeat. Last night we went out to eat. We had a glass of wine each and two large sushi rolls. For dessert, we split a Crème Brule. The couple next to us had appetizers and an entrée. I didn’t wait around to see if they had dessert, too. The sheer quantity of the servings in restaurants is over the top. Whenever I think they can’t make the portions bigger or fattier, they do.

I help my clients feel full faster and listen to their bodies’ signals. Eating is part of life. That doesn’t mean it’s the only enjoyable part of life. There has to be more. It’s essential to find other ways to experience pleasure. Getting outside and moving around more doesn’t need to be “exercise,” just movement. Play with your children or pets or go for a walk in nature. It all counts. By making these changes, you can have a normal relationship with food and enjoy other aspects of life.

You can’t think of weight loss as a diet because a diet has a beginning and an ending. Most people do this, and when they reach the end, they return to old behaviors. My program is different because, using hypnosis, we help the person to change their thoughts and feelings about food, and since all behavior comes from thought, their behavior around food changes, too. Changing behaviors creates permanent weight loss and, even more importantly, brings increased health and well-being into your life.
