It's not a magic pill at all. What it's done for me is I crave fruits and vegetables. I haven't had any sweets since before Christmas. I listened to recordings every night for quite some time.
1 week is confidence and self acceptance.
2 week healthy eating
3 week stop binge eating
4 week portion control
5 week exercise
6 week motivation
I would listen to each week then if I needed more time on a particular one I would listen longer. The exercise one didn't start kicking in for like a month and a half. At week 2 I started going backward and didn't think it would work. My husband said that was a very common thing and there is some limiting belief that is blocking your success. My belief was that my mom would tell me daily that I would never be thin. That genetically it was impossible. Both sides of my family is capable of losing weight if they don't over eat. Once I realized that the weight started falling off. My husband also listened to recordings and he's lost 25 lbs in 3 months. My husband is NOT a dieter. He just craves good healthy food now and eats much smaller portions.
Yes it may not work for everyone. Some are more suggestible than others. I think also the type of hypnotherapy is important as well. We've seen some that have background music and some that don't. There are special beats in the music my husband uses that help you go in the level of trance that is very effective.
I no longer binge eat. I no longer emotional eat. I rarely think about food. When I do it's only when my body needs it. I absolutely believe that I will achieve my goals and maintain the rest of my life. I'm no longer fighting for my health any more. I'm just happy.
