Hypnosis Weight Loss 30X More Effective

This study investigated the effects of hypnosis weight loss. Treatment included group weight loss hypnosis with metaphors for ego-strengthening, decision making and motivation, ideomotor exploration in individual hypnosis, and group hypnosis with maintenance suggestions.

Weight loss hypnosis was more effective than a control group.  An average of 17 lbs was lost in the hypnosis group vs. 0.5 lbs in the control group.

Hypnosis Subjects Lost More Weight

Researchers analysed 18 studies comparing therapies such as relaxation training, guided imagery, self-monitoring, or goal setting with the same therapy supplemented by hypnosis.

Those who received hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of those who did not.  They also managed to maintain the weight loss two years after treatment ended.

Hypnosis Weight Loss can more than double the effects

An analysis of five weight loss studies reported in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology in 1996 showed that “…  hypnosis can more than double the effects” of traditional weight loss approaches.

weight loss is greater if hypnosis is used

Research into cognitive-behavioral weight loss treatments established that weight loss is greater where hypnosis weight loss is utilised. It was also established that the benefits of hypnosis increase over time.
