How Hypnosis Can Help You Eat Less Sugar

Did you know that hypnosis can help you to eat less sugar? Eating sugary foods is a type of behaviour that you may have gotten used to over many years. With the help of hypnosis, you can re-programme your subconscious mind so that you have a different attitude when it comes to sugary snacks.

Eating too much sugar is one of the main causes of weight gain. Sugar is pure calories and provides almost no other nutrients. When you take in excess calories, your body processes them into fats, resulting in an increase in body fat.

Sugars are broken down by the body very quickly and turned into glucose. This causes your blood glucose levels to rise massively. While this gives you a short burst of energy, it will not be long until you need more. As a result, it's likely that you'll reach out for another sugary snack like a cookie, and you'll keep eating because those sugary snacks are being processed into glucose so quickly.

Numerous experts suggest that in order to lose weight we need to decrease our sugar intake and eat foods that provide us with other nutrients as well as sugar. In order to solve your problem with sugar consumption, you need to focus on eating foods with a low or medium Glycaemic index value. These foods satisfy your body better and provide energy for longer.

The solution is obvious, but it's easier said than done. If you've been addicted to grazing on sugary snacks for a long time, it won't be easy to give them up straight away.

Adopting new habits is something that the subconscious mind does not like. When your repeat similar behaviours over a long period of time, your subconscious accepts them as the norm. If you try to break these patterns, you will probably feel very agitated as your subconscious will not be too pleased.

Luckily though, it is possible to communicate with the subconscious through hypnosis. When in a deeply relaxed state, the subconscious mind is open to suggestions. In this state, it can be taught a new perspective about sugary foods which will you give you the urge to eat them less.

Suggestions that could be given to your subconscious include things like "You can enjoy sweet foods more if you eat less of them" and "you are forgetting to eat sweet snacks".

These suggestions give the subconscious a new perspective and cause your usual urges for sweet and sugary foods to fade away. Thanks to this encouragement from hypnotic suggestions, your desire will fade away and it's likely that you will find yourself adopting healthier eating habits.

As your habits change and become healthier, it will give reinforcement to the new perspective of your subconscious and it will now accept your healthier eating habits as the norm.

As you can see, hypnosis can help take away a lot of unconscious resistance that occurs when you try to make behavioural changes. Some people find that hypnosis is the catalyst for change after months or years of unsuccessful dieting.
