The Royal College of Physicians has said that obesity should be viewed as a disease - not as a lifestyle choice. Now, of course there are medical conditions and medications that lead to obesity, which people cannot do anything about. But, the implication is that all obesity is uncontrollable.
This is not so. We are not condemnmed to live our lives constantly grazing on whatever titbits take our fancy. We are not condemned to eat sugar laden foods and live sedentary lives. If people give a little more attention to what they eat, when they eat and where they eat, then they can begin to make small changes in their weight. If they make a commitment to regular exercise as well then they can make bigger chages in their weight.
Hypnotherapy can help by convincing the subconscious mind that someone doesn't need sugar addiction and can find fulfillment in other food intake. It can also help withencouraging them to get active and feel good about their body. It doesn't promise to deliver the body of a supermodel. But if someone follows a program that leads them to lose 2- 5 pounds a week for a period of six weeks they can begin to see a real change. if they carry on following that program for six months or a year then they can be really happy with what they see.
Most resolutions taken up in January are abandoned by mid February> Hypnotherapy aims to encourage more long term change.

The state of hypnosis is very like the state between waking and sleeping. There are various methods of getting you to this state. But once you are there - you are highly suggestible to positive suggestions....
