Weight Loss research Overview
This particular research investigated the effects of hypnosis in weight loss for 60 females, at least 20% were overweight. Treatment included group hypnosis and individual sessions with therapeutic story telling for strengthening their ego, decision making and motivation, exploration of causes in individual hypnosis, and group hypnosis with maintenance suggestions for long term results.
Weight Loss with Hypnotherapy Results
The results were clear, an average of 17 lbs lost by the hypnosis group vs. an average of 0.5 lbs lost by the control group. I’m sure, like me, you think they’re great results!

Mind Solutions and Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss
Other solutions focusing on the mind certainly also work but as the research below shows adding hypnosis to these has been proved to increase the results.
Researchers analyzed 18 studies comparing a cognitive behavioral therapy such as relaxation training, guided imagery, self monitoring, or goal setting with the same therapy supplemented by hypnosis. Those who received the hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of those not who did not and they maintained the weight loss two years after treatment ended. Exciting results I’m sure you’ll agree.

This is clear evidence that hypnosis isn’t just mumbo jumbo but gets real scientific results.
