If weight loss was as simple as fewer calories in than calories out, everybody would get the results by following the formula. Unfortunately, sustainable weight loss happens to be a bit more challenging. Numerous additional factors have to be considered, which makes it impossible to come up with a universal formula.

Have you been struggling with your weight loss efforts over the years? Here are some of the common reasons why you haven't seen results so far.

Address Emotional Eating

For many people, food turns into a source of comfort. Excessive workplace stress, personal problems and relationship issues that arenít addressed in the right way can result in cravings. Food turns into a coping mechanism. Stopping emotional eating is an incredibly challenging task, especially if the underlying emotions arenít addressed.

Choosing the right relaxation techniques and considering weight loss hypnosis are two possible options for breaking that vicious cycle and starting to have a healthier relationship with food. Hypnotherapy for weight loss makes it easier for people to come in touch with their emotions, understand destructive patterns and sub-consciously accept healthier patterns of behaviour that will contribute to easier, sustainable weight loss.


What do you see in the mirror? Are you happy with the reflection? Can you embrace every single curve, dimple and imperfection? People that love themselves and accept their appearance find it much easier to lose weight than the individuals that hate themselves.

The premise is easy to understand Ė you canít heal a body that you loathe and you canít work on improving its appearance if you see solely faults. Weight loss hypnosis is once again a great option for overcoming the problem. It can help you understand why you hate yourself and lack self-esteem. Upon understanding the underlying cause of the negative emotions, you can begin working on having a better relationship with yourself and your body.

A Quick Fix?

A quick fix like a fad diet isnít going to deliver the desired results. Sustainable weight loss is all about introducing lifestyle changes and making healthy decisions.

Itís all about finding the balance. You should learn how to cope with chronic stress, incorporate healthy foods in your meal plan and work out at least one or two times per day.

Hypnotherapy for weight loss can make it easier for you to introduce such changes. Sub-consciously, youíll learn how to ďenjoyĒ healthy foods and replace your favourite junk snacks with those. In addition, hypnosis can help you incorporate exercise in your everyday existence without feeling particularly stressed about it.

Medical Conditions

Apart from addressing the emotional factors linked to your inability to lose weight, it may be a good idea to have your health thoroughly assessed.

A number of medical conditions could be making it difficult for you to become fit. Itís not impossible to lose weight if you have those, youíll simply need a specialised plan and you may eventually need to take medications.

Some of the medical conditions that turn weight loss into a challenging task include hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), type 2 diabetes and clinical depression. If you havenít been capable of losing weight for some time, youíll need to schedule an appointment with your physician before doing anything else.
