How do you lose weight and then control it?

It is a case of mind over matter. People who have the desire, willingness and the determination to reduce weight and then to maintain a healthy weight can succeed by taking a Mind and Body approach.

  • Drugs on their own don't work

  • Diets on their own don't work

  • Surgery on its own doesn't work

Hypnotherapy and related complementary therapy techniques can help an individual as such techniques combine a Mind and Body approach.

We always advise people work in conjunction with doctors as complementary therapies are not a replacement for traditional medical consultation.

The first step is to make a decision to lose weight (or to maintain a healthy weight) ... you need the will and the determination to make the change ... and then you can take action.

The Obesity 'epidemic' is now global, affecting 63 countries. This is confirmed in a study published in The Circulation Journal. Being overweight or obese is a health problem in itself but it also leads to a number of other serious illnesses and diseases.

Anti-Obesity Drugs study published in The British Medical Journal :-

Conclusions: Anti-obesity drugs (3 were tested) modestly reduce weight, have differing effects on cardiovascular risk profiles, and have specific adverse effects.

"Selling antiobesity drugs over the counter will perpetuate the myth that obesity can be fixed simply by popping a pill and could further undermine the efforts to promote healthy living, which is the only long term escape from obesity. ... Top ten diet pills include several products that are known to be dangerous or are devoid of evidence that they actually work (or both)."

Editor's Note: What many people miss is one vital piece of information - (in what I term) the Speed For Greed - consumers are offered Genetically Modified Foods and/or foods contaminated with harmful chemicals and additives. Prevention is better than cure. It's just like smoking - why poison consumers in the first place?

Overweight Kids Lose Weight Eating Peanuts Every Day in School-Based Study 

New research published in Pediatrics is showing that high risk overweight adolescents, ages 10-15, can lose weight while substituting an ounce of peanuts or peanut butter for other less healthy snack choices. The study, "Weight Loss in Overweight Mexican American Children: A Randomized Controlled Trial" describes the "Family Lifestyle and Overweight" (FLOW) Prevention Program, which is in a school setting. It is being conducted by Baylor College of Medicine and the United States Department of Agriculture- Agricultural Research Service (USDA/ARS) Children's Nutrition Research Center in Houston, Texas.

For the nearly 100 million Americans who are overweight or obese, physical activity must be a crucial component to weight loss and better health, which is the focus of National Physical Therapy Month.

According to a recent study conducted by the Trust for America's Health, a research group that focuses on disease prevention, obesity rates continued their climb in 31 states last year. Health officials say the latest state rankings provide evidence that the nation has a public health crisis on its hands. Last year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cited evidence that more than 22 percent of Americans did not engage in any physical activity in the previous month.

"To say the least, the results of this study are cause for concern," notes Deusinger. "People are dying from the effects of obesity, and it's not just our parents and grandparents anymore; it's our friends, siblings, and colleagues. No one is immune from the dual epidemics of obesity and sedentary behavior."

Universite de Montreal study finds that kids eating (junk food) in their bedrooms leads to obesity. 

We always advise clients to have just ONE eating zone. No eating in any other rooms, or when watching TV, etc. That helps you maintain a healthy habit, regular eating times, avoiding junk food, only eating when you are hungry, and so on.

In response to a flurry of news attention to a new study in The Journal of the American Medical Association that investigated correlations between body weight and cause of death, the Campaign to End Obesity, a non-profit, non-partisan coalition dedicated to driving policy changes that will reverse the obesity epidemic, is warning individuals and policy makers to use caution when applying today's headlines to their lives and work. Although this study found that overweight does not appear to be associated with increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease or cancer, it is associated with increased risk of death from diabetes and renal disease. It is also linked to obesity, which is associated with increased risk of disability and death from not only cardiovascular disease and cancer, but from a host of other disease as well.

Campaign to End Obesity

Obesity is becoming an increasing issue with hospitals. Many papers reported the crisis - hospitals are having to spend extra cash on "supersized" beds, trolleys, etc. for obese patients. One hospital is also reported to have said its upper floors can't support obese patients.

What is the obesity crisis missing? The powers that be seem to be addressing the "outcomes" rather than the causes. They are not paying attention to the power of the mind - they are focusing on the physical body. They are also ignoring the dangerous effects of "junk food."  In short, prevention is not on the priority agenda - that means hospitals are left to "fire-fight" as best as they can with the resources available.

It's like Smoking in the early days - the profiteers happily package and advertise poison to the masses. The general public only becomes aware of the poisonous effects when it's rather too late.

An American research team reports that obesity may be "contagious" - if your family and friends are obese, you risk obesity. This of course doesn't come as much of a surprise to advanced complementary therapy practitioners. We have known for decades about the effects of matching and mirroring, positive and negative imprints, conscious and subconscious behaviors, etc.

After studying current research, the American Medical Association (AMA) concluded that high fructose syrup does not appear to contribute more to obesity than other caloric sweeteners, but called for further independent research to be done on the health effects of high fructose syrup and other sweeteners.

"Obesity continues to be a major public health problem in this country. Overweight and obese adults and children are at an increased risk for chronic health conditions like heart disease and diabetes" said Dr. Dolan. "Eating a healthier diet can help maintain a healthy weight and drastically reduce your chances of developing weight-related illnesses."
