Category Archives: Weight Loss

Weight loss is such a huge topic regardless if you’re talking about losing a few pounds to look good for the summer or hundreds to cope with failing health issues because of obesity. Whatever the reason, it isn’t just about diet though. There are lots – too many most would say – of diets to choose from, and unfortunately many were developed because of conflicting scientific and medical thoughts. It is confusing.

What isn’t confusing though is that our relationship with food is complicated. It’s emotional and in some respects learned when we were growing up from our parents, who passed it on from their parents, etc. I’d argue a simple diet of protein and vegetables small portions should support most peoples needs. However, could most people stick with just that? While my weight loss programs don’t dictate any one diet – anything reasonable will suffice – there are staple things that should be included and excluded if you will – like limit the process and/or natural sugars.

But getting to your ideal weight or right size as I call it is one outcome. In some restricts weight loss should be achievable for most of us, but then that hard part comes – staying at your right weight. Not so easy. Because maintaining your right size requires long-term commitment to changing your food choices. And this is where hypnosis comes into play because a diet is just a diet and what you eat is a habit, and you can easily slip back into poor eating and portion sizes quickly and put on all the pounds, and more, you lost on that wonderful special diet program.

So, the articles you’ll find here cover an array of topics around food and weight loss and will give you a solid foundation in the things to watch out for as you embark on your own weight loss program.
