Can Weight Loss Hypnosis Speed Up Your Metabolism?

If your idea of weight loss hypnosis is fat melting off your body, like fog in sunlight -- without ANY effort on your part -- well, you may be somewhat disappointed. 

But if you are prepared to use the mind power techniques and mind tools to more easily change your habits -- and by doing so, make your weight loss quicker and easier --  then you are going to LOVE what hypnosis can help you do.

How Weight Loss Hypnosis Makes Losing Weight Easier:

As I mentioned in the self hypnosis for weight loss article:

  • With weight loss hypnosis, you can use the power of mind to create new responses to triggers that, up until now, caused you to eat unnecessarily. In other words, hypnosis can help you overcome unhealthy stress responses that contribute to your weight problem.  For example, you can stop emotional eating and break habits that cause you harm.
  • Weight loss Hypnosis can "change your mind" about "liking" fattening and unhealthy foods.  Hypnosis, NLP techniques and positive reinforcement can help you retrain your subconscious mind to enjoy the foods that are low-carb, low fat, healthy and nutritious, and lose your desire for those that aren't.
  • Using  the power of mind through hypnosis, you can increase your motivation,  a key to success when making any lifestyle changes. Weight loss hypnosis, for example, can help you increase your exercise motivation and help you sustain a healthier lifestyle that NATURALLY keeps your weight in check.

So, what can weight loss hypnosis do
to speed up metabolism? 

First, let's look at WHAT speeds up metabolism. The following tips to increase metabolism are taken from my Fit Fabulous YOU: Hypnosis for Weight Loss Platinum program.

  • Get enough sleep. Lack of sleep can be a serious obstacle to weight loss. When you don’t get enough sleep, your resting metabolic rate (about 70% of the calories most people burn)  slows down. That means  the  number of calories your body burns while at rest is reduced. If sleep is a problem for you, I highly recommend sleep hypnosis and self hypnosis as a natural. effective method -- with no harmful side effects.   
  • Drink more water. Researchers in Germany found that subjects in the study increased their metabolic rates by 30 percent after drinking approximately 17 ounces of water. (Water is also a natural appetite suppressant and it flushes out sodium and toxins.)
  • Include muscle building activity or strength training in your exercise regime. Every extra pound of muscle you carry can burn up to 50 additional calories just to maintain itself -- and with no effort on your part.
  • Eat More Lean Protein and less fat and carbohydrates. Your body burns twice as many calories digesting high-protein foods such as eggs, chicken, or nuts,  as it does foods that are high in carbs or fat.
  • Reduce Stress. More on stress and weight here.
  • Increase physical activity. If you sit a lot for work, set your phone alarm to remind you to stretch every 40 minutes or so. Never sit when you can stand, or stand still when you can walk, take the elevator when you can take the stairs, stroll when you can stride. Look for the furthest parking space from the store, not the closest.
  • Add interval training to your aerobic workout. You can burn another 100 to 200 calories by alternating 3 minutes of moderate intensity aerobics with 30 SECONDS of all-out effort. You will be AMAZED how much quicker you can burn off fat.
  • Take a fish oil supplement. I am not a big supplement taker, but studies show that fish oil increases levels of fat-burning enzymes and decreases levels of fat-storage enzymes. From what I read, you should take at least 300 milligrams of EPA and DHA for it to be effective for weight loss.
  • Eat less -- more often.   Research from Georgia State University shows that people who eat every 2 to 3 hours have less body fat and faster metabolisms than those who eat only 2 or 3 meals per day. Each time you eat, you stimulate your metabolism for a short period of time.
  • Eat more high-fiber vegetables.  A great strategy for weight loss.   Fiber is a non-digestible carbohydrate and the body uses up a lot of extra calories trying to break it down. Plus, vegetables are low in calories, yet high in nutrients.
  • Using the power of mind and weight loss hypnosis, you can retrain yourself to make GOOD habits out of any and all the above tips for speeding up your metabolism. By doing so, you support your weight loss efforts in a healthy, natural, sustainable way that can literally change your life!
