Does Hypnosis Work for Weight Loss?

Few studies have shown a direct link between hypnosis and physical weight loss. Hypnosis can help with your mind-set towards weight loss, though. Because hypnosis focuses more on the mental part of weight loss than the physical, it may help motivate you to get started or keep going. This will fuel the hard work you’re already putting in to lose those extra pounds. The physical part of weight loss is all you – meaning you have to put in the work at home or at the gym.

Hypnosis only encourages a different way of thinking about your body in relationship to food and fitness – so in this way, it can be beneficial.
