Can Hypnosis Help You Lose Weight?

The idea of drifting into a state of unconsciousness and waking up able to resist cravings and drop weight sounds too good to be true for most dieters. Hypnosis is widely used to help overcome phobias and change certain behaviours, such as alcohol or tobacco use. This article looks at the evidence to determine whether hypnosis can help you lose weight and keep it off.

What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of consciousness involving enhanced attention and concentration, a decreased awareness of surroundings and an increased response to suggestion.

There are two different theories about how hypnosis works.

The “state” theory suggests that subjects enter an alternate state of consciousness with altered brain function, which accounts for the effects of hypnosis.

Meanwhile, the “non-state” theory says that hypnosis is not an altered state of consciousness. Instead, the subject is responding to suggestion and actively participating in the session, rather than under the control of the hypnotist.

There are various hypnosis techniques. One of the most common is the eye-fixation technique, which involves maintaining a steady stare at a bright object until the eyes gradually close.

Once you’ve entered the state of hypnosis, you are more suggestible and more likely to be receptive to making positive changes in your behaviour.

Entering into a hypnotic trance is often described as a relaxed state of awareness. Once in a trance, the hypnotist will give verbal suggestions, such as “when you wake up, you will feel more motivated” or “you will not drink alcohol.”

Who Should Try Hypnosis

Hypnosis is for anyone looking for a gentle way to lose weight and make healthy eating into a habit. Hypnosis isn’t meant to be a “diet” but rather one tool to help you be successful with eating nutritious food and exercising.

Hypnosis helps people experience in a multi-sensory way what it feels like when they are strong, fit and in control and to overcome their mental barriers to achieving those goals.

Hypnosis can specifically help people resolve the underlying psychological problems causing them to hate exercise, experience intense cravings, binge at night, or eat mindlessly. It helps them identify the triggers and disarm them.

Hypnotherapy May Enhance Weight Loss

In addition to its potential ability to modify behaviour, research shows that hypnosis may increase weight loss.

In one study, 60 obese people with sleep apnea were either given dietary advice, hypnotherapy for stress reduction or hypnotherapy for reducing calorie intake.

After three months, all the groups lost comparable amounts of weight. However, only the group receiving hypnotherapy for stress reduction had sustained their weight loss after 18 months.

In another study, 109 people underwent behavioural treatment for weight loss, either with or without hypnosis. After two years, the hypnotherapy group continued to lose weight, while the control group exhibited fewer further changes in weight.

Moreover, an analysis of several studies found that adding hypnosis to a cognitive behavioural treatment for weight reduction resulted in nearly double the amount of weight loss.

Still, research on the potential effects of hypnosis on weight loss is limited. More studies are needed to measure how hypnosis could benefit weight management.
