I was looking at the weight loss surgery videos on you tube because I am thinking about getting it when I saw this video that warns not to do it because of the dangers and he was a hypnotherapist with a health service. I looked at his web site and he seems to be genuine and he is very qualified so I thought I might try it and wondered if anyone has any advice. I talked to my doctor and she had a quick look on her computer at him and said hypnotherapy can't hurt me if I want to try it, his name is Master Hypnotist Adam Snailham Has anyone else tried it, I am a little bit nervous about it but after looking at the operations on you tube I don’t think I want to do that. Any advice would be appreciated.
P.s I posted this yesterday but it didn't work so I am trying again in case it comes on twice, thanks

I didn’t think about hypnosis for weight loss. I went to one years ago to stop smoking and it worked for me. I've heard others say it didn’t work for smoking but I think it's like anything you have to find a good one.

Weight loss surgery should be a last resort and from what I have seen on youtube you have to do even stricter diets after the surgery than you normally would so I don’t see the point. I can't really comment on the hypnosis. If you give it a try I would be interested to hear about it as it isn't something I have considered.

Like Mick, I tried hypnosis for smoking but it didn't work. Went cold turkey years later.

Have you talked with a nutritionist who might be able to help you put together a program for weight loss? Or perhaps looked at this site and see all the diets around.

As Susycolleen said, surgery should be your last resort. And know that after the surgery, the amount of food you will be able to eat at each meal will equal the size of an egg. Try and eat more than that, you'll start drooling. Yeppers. I had 2 nieces do it and they're both gaining it back.

Take the time to check out all the diets.

Good Luck.

My mom tried it years ago and it didn't work. I've heard that it depends on how suggestible you are, and she's a stubborn lady so that could be why.

I dont know about everyone, but i've listened to suggestive hypnosis tapes and while doing them I certainly felt better. Visualizing goals is easier for me because I am a visual learner. It just depends on your capability to let go and listen completely to what the person is suggesting to you. Personally though, Intermittent fasting has brought me the best results. I've lost 13lbs in a month by eating better and fasting 1 day a week for 16-24 hours. i'm in my 2nd month now and I haven't officially marked my weight loss until I go to the gym but my home scale has changed 4lbs.

Different hypnotists have different programs. Some are more flexible than others. Ask for a consultation to find out what sort of diet program they will be encouraging you to follow. Hypnotists are not nutritionists and should not be prescribing a specific diet.

Thank you for your support,
I am glad you understand as I thought you might think I was stupid and I am going to give it a try I have decided. He says that if you do it there are no diets or will power and he programs you mind so I imagine you will not want to eat as much or bad foods cause your mind will be programed I think, I don’t really know but he has a lot of good recommendations on the internet and on youtube you can see him hypnotising people and stuff. His website is hypnotherapyhypnotist.com I am surprised no one else has tried it thanks, Mary.

There are a lot of techniques that can be used to help you reach your goals. Hypnosis is one of them. I often recommend EFT (tapping).

I'll try this. hypnotherapyhypnotist and you will know the start and end. That looks Interesting the EFT but according to this he does it all for you and he re-programs you mind to just not want to eat as much and then I won't have to worry about food all the time because I am so sick of it, what will I eat next, how many calories and then feel bad for eating it anyway. If you watch him on youtube he does it and makes this man not want to eat junk anymore and a lady stop smoking in 5 minutes. Maybe it's fake but it looks real enough, I've tried everything else except surgery and this is a lot cheaper option. I don’t know, maybe I am just wishing, but it would be a pretty cruel joke if he wasn’t for real.

I am 100% certain that hypnosis in some shape or form can help you lose weight. I have earlier on posted videos from Paul McKenna's show "Paul McKenna Will Make You Thin". He is a constant help for me, not so much through actual hypnosis, but little exercises that helps you keep your head in the right place.

I know a couple of people who are happy with their weight loss after hypnosis. I also know some that has tried it with little to no success.

They hypnosis in itself won't do it if you challenge it and just go back to eating what you usually eat. If you are able to truly listen to your body and your food urges, and then can stay away from the things that the hypnosis "tells you" that you no longer want, then it might work for you.

If you decide to go for it, it would be interesting if you would post your results here. Let's all learn from it. Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Weight loss is a long-term project. If you are properly motivated, hypnotherapy and EFT can be a great start. But you will probably need to continue to at least occasionally have sessions for a while to help you develop strategies to deal with challenging situations.

Thank you, thats really encouraging and i will sign up tommorow and certainly let you know how I go. I will do what he says and I am hoping it will ge me some respite from constantly obessing about food all day. If I can just get those thoughts out of my head I know i will do better.

EFT is great for obsession.
