The Mediterranean Diet and Self Hypnosis can Eliminate Compulsions So You Lose Weight Naturally!
If you want the body of a Greek god or goddess, you do not have to battle one-eyed monsters or hurl thunderbolts - simply eating like the ancient idols could help you get a physique that others will worship.
The Mediterranean way of eating, which is a diet meal plan featuring a great deal of fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, olive oil, whole grains and red wine, can help you arrive at the ideal shape. The Mediterranean weight loss diet has also been linked to a healthier heart and a longer life span. Fatty dairy products, red meat, and foods with refined sugar are rarely consumed, if ever.
Centuries after the powerful gods shook things up, the Mediterranean style of eating still makes great sense as a weight loss meal plan because you get full on a lot of high-fiber, low fat foods that leave you feeling satisfied longer. The fruits and vegetables eaten as part of the Mediterranean diet plan are naturally low in calories, and are rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, things your body needs to create new and healthy cells.
The Mediterranean diet plan permits a higher fat intake than most weight loss meal plans, but it's healthy fat that comes from olive oil and nuts, which are rich in beneficial monounsaturated fats, and low in unhealthy saturated fats, like those found in beef, ice-cream or cheese.
Just keep in mind that for higher calorie items, like the red wine, olive oil and whole grains, you still have to focus on overall calorie intake and serving sizes. The secret to any successful weight loss meal plan is consuming fewer calories while still feeling satisfied.
When you feel content, it makes it a little easier to defeat cravings that many people who are trying to follow a weight loss diet experience. What good is a diet if you cannot stick to it because your appetite is out of control? Before beginning any weight loss meal plan, you'll need to find a safe, effective technique to eliminate your urges, cravings and appetite to overeat. Lose weight hypnotherapy is a wonderful way to help you curb your cravings.
The typical person experiences cravings and an urge to eat for two major reasons:
A. When you combine eating with any other behavior, the other behavior will trigger cravings and a compulsion to eat.
B. When you feel tense, you feel compelled to put something into your mouth for relaxation and pleasure.
Let's talk about Part "A" first. More than 70% of the population learns much more quickly and easily by seeing, rather then by hearing. Think about it: If you have an urge to eat while watching television, it's because your mind recorded the video image of food in your hand, and then associated that image with the image of the TV. From that point, each time you watch TV, your unconscious mind flashes the image of the food in your hand, and you get a corresponding urge.
You have actually "programmed" your unconscious mind to make you feel cravings and urges as a "conditioned response" to watching TV. The same thing occurs when you eat in your car or while on the phone, etc.
Weight loss hypnotherapy will erase the conditioned responses quickly by reprogramming your mind to have it trigger unconscious images of you watching the TV without eating, and that will eliminate the urge to eat. It will also give you an urge to reject food in that scenario!
But what about Part "B"? Our sensations of stress are created by our thoughts. If you think negative thoughts, you feel anxiety and upset. If you think happy thoughts, you feel happy and relaxed.
If you have an upsetting thought while you are sitting at your computer, your mind can associate that thought with the computer. Thereafter, when you sit at your computer, you have a conditioned response; your mind will flash to that negative thought and you will feel anxiety. Weight loss hypnosis can help you conquer these patterns almost immediately.
The techniques used in some of the most successful self-hypnosis programs are based on Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). This technology works based on the utilization of a person's existing thought processes instead of post-hypnotic suggestion.
Video weight loss hypnosis can program your subconscious mind to use stressful thoughts as a trigger for tranquilizing thoughts. So if you begin to think of something that is upsetting, your unconscious mind will automatically change to a relaxing thought in a millisecond. You become peaceful, so there are no sensations of stress to cause your cravings. And without an appetite to overeat, it's much easier to lose weight and keep it off permanently.
Adhering to a sensible weight loss diet plan, like the Mediterranean style, along with weight loss hypnosis means you can finally overcome your cravings to attain the body of a Greek god or goddess.
