Diets Dont Work

Why Diets Don’t Work

They reckon that by the age of 45 the average woman has been on 61 diets and will spend 31years of her life on a diet of some kind. Men are not far off with an average of 28years dieting. So we’re all getting thinner, right?
Clearly not, as statistics show that 30% of the world’s population is overweight or obese and at current rates it will be 50% by 2030. So what does this tell us?
First and foremost it must tell us that, in the long term, diets don’t work!
When you diet, especially those ‘Lose 6lbs in a Week’ kind of diets, your body recognises that less food is being consumed and goes into ‘famine’ mode. It produces an enzyme called Lipoprotein Lipase which helps to store extra fat, to be used in emergency (imminent death). You are now a super-efficient fat-storage machine. Lipoprotein remains in the body for up to 3 months, even after the perceived famine (diet) is over. As soon as you start eating normally again, the body sends it all straight to storage, making you fatter than before! And then to top it all, the body, to preserve that store of fat, will start to use the lean mass (muscles & bone) as its fuel – so the diet seems to have worked because you lose weight.
Less muscle & bone means the body needs less calories to keep it going which means, as soon as you stop your diet, weight goes on quicker than before. This is why so many people who have dieted repeatedly find they are eating less and less but still putting on weight.
Added to this, the body has a natural balance that, over time, becomes a default position. In other words, if someone has been overweight for some years, the body then accepts this state as ‘normal’ and will do anything it can to hold this status quo. So that, when they diet, they lose weight to begin with, but then the body will start to regain its status quo by slowing the metabolism and holding on to every calorie it can.
It works like the central heating system in your home; you set the heating to 20°C and the house warms up to that temperature. If you then open all the windows, the temperature will drop initially, but then the boiler comes on and works hard to push the temperature back up to 20°C. If you then close all the windows and put a fire on, the boiler turns itself off, continuing to keep the house at that 20°C. The only way to reduce the temperature of the house is to actually turn the thermostat down.
Hypnosis and NLP can help you to switch the ‘thermostat’ down by allowing your mind to begin to see the ‘thinner you’ as the ‘default’. It also helps to speed up the metabolism, encourage that ‘full’ feeling sooner, motivate you to enjoy movement, remove emotional eating from your life, encourage healthier eating and reduce cravings for sugary foods. Adding hypnosis to your weight loss regime has been shown, in research, to increase weight loss by an average of 97% and even more importantly increased the effectiveness long term by over 146%!

Have You Been Here Before?

Have you ever experienced the feeling of knowing someone you’ve just met or recognising a place you’ve never been to before? Perhaps you have a connection with them in a previous life. Even people who have no belief in past lives are heard to say ‘I must have done something really bad in a previous life to keep suffering like this’. Albeit that it is not as simple as this there may be some truth in the statement – karma is not about judgement and often those who suffer the greatest are learning at ‘postgrad’ level!

Past Life Regression was probably discovered accidentally by hypnotherapists directing the client back to the first time they experienced something. We now take this step intentionally to reveal deeper seated problems, repetitive behaviours or unexplained phobias and illnesses.

Past Life Regression can be an extension of Regression Therapy or a ‘tourist trip’ to a past life. Where it used as a therapy it can alleviate problems that have been affecting your life for which there seems to be no cause or for understanding experiences that have seemed to blight your life.

It is common for people to describe pain in ways that reveal their understanding of its origin – a pain in the shoulder ‘like a knife in my back’; headaches like ‘a band being tightened around my head’. Most of us have no experience of these in this life, however, under hypnosis, if we are taken back to the origins of these experiences, our subconscious can take us to a life where these things actually happened to us. By understanding the true origins of these pains and understanding the connection with this life these pains can completely disappear.

 Reincarnation is the basis of many of the worlds spiritual beliefs including  Buddhism; Hinduism; Sikhism; Gnostic and Esoteric Christianity, to name but a few. I have found that more and more people, especially children, have some memory of a past life, although they are not always encouraged to trust that memory because of the wider spiritual connotations and so begin to forget the memories.

 It has a beautiful logic to me and answers all the questions that I could find no other sensible solution to, including déjà-vu; karma (probably the most misunderstood); intuition; energy or spiritual healing; not forgetting ‘why are we here?’; ‘why is life unfair?’

 It is not necessary for you to believe in reincarnation for Past Life Regression to work for you. Modern psychology doesn’t seem to have a lot to say about this – some say that it is a metaphor that your subconscious has constructed for you to understand your problem – whatever you believe, it can have remarkable results with a wide range of physical and emotional problems that have no clear source. Often it can be a deeply profound and life changing experience.
