Next time you eat a chocolate bar or packet of crisps or any other junk food that you know is not good for you, do so slowly. Really slowly. And concentrate. Focus on what you are doing. Notice the flavour, the textures, the temperatures and the consistency of each bite. Pretend like you are a food critic at a fine cuisine dining experience. And as you are eating slowly (and consciously) begin to get curious as to how eating this food is helping or hindering you from becoming slimmer, more energetic and more confident.
What you will notice is rather than mindlessly eating (bad habit) you are in fact mindfully or consciously eating (good habit). You will most likely have had enough after 2 squares of a chocolate bar. And whatever feeling you get then, notice that feeling. That is the feeling of freedom you get when you no longer eat mindlessly, when you actually focus on what you are doing. Now, you are in control.
Try it also when you are having your dinner. Eat slowly and consciously (as if you are a food critic tasting fine cuisine at a cooking competition) and you will notice that you eat much less. Not near as much as in the past.
The reason that eating slowly and consciously is so powerful is that it allows you the time and opportunity to listen in to your body and notice that point at which you have had enough food for now.
At that point everything else in front of you immediately becomes waste. It doesn’t matter if there is still food on your plate. If you eat it, it will be stored on your body in the form of fat. Guaranteed!
So your choice now becomes: “do I want this waste in my stomach or do I want it in the bin”? (Of course you can always put it back to the fridge for later, but you get my gist). So, get curious as to when that point is, when your body has had enough food for now. (Here’s a hint, it often happens long before you ever thought before).
As you eat slowly and consciously and become more aware of that point at which you’ve had enough food, you will notice your eating habits drastically change. Your appetite and your portion sizes become smaller and smaller and you have no interest in eating as much food as in the past.
By eating slowly and consciously you engage your brain in the activity of eating which means you are less likely to mindlessly finish off food without a second thought. This means you are eating far less food each day, which means you are taking in far less calories and are therefore on the right road to losing weight naturally and easily.
Hypnosis can help you to eat slowly and consciously and really take control of your eating habits, your portion sizes and dramatically reduce your calorie intake which leaves you firmly on the road to reaching whatever weight you wish to be.
