iCan Lose Weight: learn self hypnosis and control your weight

iCan Hypnosis
Anyone can diet! Some people have been on diets most of their lives - stepping on and off the faddy roller-coaster of the latest hot diet, which then is almost inevitably interspersed with furious eating binges.
All this does is to reduce your general health levels while degrading the immune system! Yes, anyone can diet, the trick is to get your weight down and then keep it down with a sane diet that is good for you and good for the long term - and this is of course a state of mind rather than a particular diet per se...

Are you obese ?
Obesity is now calculated by a formula called the Body Mass Index (BMI) where your weight in kilos is divided by the square of your height in metres. If, say for example, your weight is 90 kilos and your height is 1.8 metres then your BMI is 27.7 (90/1.8x1.8) which makes you overweight.

BODY MASS INDEX
Underweight: less than 20
Normal weight: 20-25
Overweight: 25 - 29.9
Obese: over 30
Morbidly obese: over 40

BMI is not infallible, in some circumstance a sportsman, for example, could come out as obese because of unusually low body fat... but I think we can eliminate such anomalies at a glance.

Latest obesity research
Many doctors now believe that obesity causes more health problems than even smoking…leading to a range of serious risks such as:

• Heart disease.
• High blood pressure.
• Diabetes.
• Arthritis.
• Gallstones.
• Indigestion.
• Breast and prostate cancers
• Snoring
• Apnoea
• Stress, depression and anxiety

While people with lower BMI’s live longer, death rates are significantly higher for those with BMI’s of 25 and above. As life for most people in the west becomes more sedentary, weight problems will only get worse. So it is up to the individual to do something about it - and the only sure long term way to lose weight and then keep it down is to attacks the causes of obesity, not the symptoms.

Hypnotherapy is ideal for this because, as with anxiety and panic attacks, it does not deal with or repress symptoms, but takes on the root causes - indeed, can only take on the root causes around weight control. Unable to supply a list of the latest 'must have' diet fads, hypnotherapy instead talks directly to the underlying causes, reaching into the unconscious to persuade and assuage the psychological issues that indirectly trigger overeating. It gets down to the basic root causes which lead to overeating... which is, I'm afraid, the usual lineup of suspects; issues of compensation, self esteem... etc.
