Most of us have a complex relationship with food. You only have to step in to your nearest restaurant to see that no two people interact with food in the same way. We have options for vegetarians and vegans, gluten intolerance, low fat diets, high protein diets, possibilities for complex and simple carbohydrates, diabetes, and hypoglycaemia – and this is just in your local everyday food outlet!
No two people have the same tastes when it comes to food, which is evidenced by marketing campaigns such as the ‘Marmite’ advert, which capitalised on the fact that the nation was divided as to whether it is a much-loved or detested spread!
The fads, trends and preferences for different types of food are worth millions to the consumer market, but they also give an indication of just how complex we Humans can be when it comes to eating.
When these complexities become problematic, however, they can have a real impact on the quality of our lives.
There are reasons for your eating habits
I see people every day who have issues with their approach to food.
Some people are desperate to gain weight, and it seems no matter how hard they try they simply can’t increase their body mass. On the other side of the spectrum, I see people whose weight increase has led to them suffering from obesity, and all the associated confidence and health issues that come along with this challenging condition.
The issue for most of us is that our approach to food and our eating habits are governed on a sub-conscious level, rather than a conscious one. Our eating habits and patterns have likely been formed and developed within us for many many years, perhaps stemming from our childhood associations with eating, or arising from an awareness of our body image as we hit a certain age and become self-conscious for the first time.
While there may not be any benefit in tracing back our eating hang-ups to early years, hypnosis can really help us to re-shape our approach to food and change our attitudes on a sustained, sub-conscious level.
All of the thoughts and ideas that govern our eating patterns are usually very deep-seated, and it is hard to tackle them on a daily basis without getting right to the core of the issue and providing more positive foundations for sustainable change. This is why hypnosis is so effective in controlling your eating habits – it works on a deeper level than traditional diet theories and counselling, challenging your habitual responses to food and replacing them with a healthy, balanced and positive attitude that lays the foundation for life-long improvements.
