Although not true of everyone, it is frequently the case that if you find yourself constantly indulging in rich, fatty, or sweet foods you may be eating them for more than just hunger reasons. It is normal to enjoy eating such foods as treats now and again, but if your relationship with junk food is worrying you it may be time to examine why you have developed such a relationship. Some people ‘comfort eat’ when they feel sad or stressed, or your parents may have fed you such foods as rewards for good behaviour as a child, or if you are the rebellious type you may associate such foods with indulgence and pleasurable mischief. Whatever your reasons, finding out and breaking down what draws you to regularly eat these foods could help you understand the relationship with such foods better. Knowing not just what foods you should eat, but why you choose unhealthy and processed foods, can help you to move on from them and form healthier (both physical and emotional) eating habits.
Hypnotherapy is an extraordinarily powerful means of bringing about a shift in thinking, which enables people to stop eating junk food. This is achieved by aligning the “subconscious” beliefs, habits and associations with the “conscious” choice of the client to stop eating junk food. Often the client feels in conflict… part of them wants to stop (the conscious mind) and part of them does not (the subconscious mind).
When a client comes for Hypnotherapy they hold a firm belief that they are a confirmed “junk food eater”, even though they have made a conscious choice to stop. They also have created fixed habits and associations in connection with their eating i.e. ; they may eat junk food as a way of calming down, feeling sad or depressed. The way the client feels about their beliefs, habits and associations must be changed to allow them to feel and act differently.
