2015 was an exciting big news year for healthier eating. Mainstream studies and news reports are reporting the health benefits of eating whole plants instead of animal and processed foods. While I’m not a proponent of fad diets, the current movement is that the whole food plant-based lifestyle will soon be the trend du jour. What I do hope is that people will focus on the evidence. When I’m explaining the Slender For Life™ hypnosis weight loss program to clients, I now explain that we use an evidence-based diet. The evidence that has been mounting for the past 100 years is that human food should like you dug it out of the earth, picked it off of a plant, bush or a tree. If you are still hanging on to the notion that you need or want chicken, fish, beef, pork, eggs and dairy products (including yogurt) – you are ignoring the evidence. The meat and dairy council marketers are selling you disease. I challenge you to consider the evidence and to use weight loss hypnosis to make it easy to change your nutritional lifestyle.

By Thomas Campbell, MD December 22, 2015: 2015 was a big news year for healthier eating. At the T.

The thought of letting go of a life-long meat and dairy based lifestyle conjures up a host of emotions and thoughts of “I could never do that,” and my “partner would never go for that.” People will often have a deer in the headlights look in their eyes when they think of dining out with family and friends and not eating meat or dairy. I remember those thoughts and emotions myself. It really gets down to, what do you want?
Do you want to live a life of obesity and disease that requires you to take prescription medications that cause other health complications? Is eating meat and dairy really worth the physical pain and inflammation in your body that keeps you from keeping up with your grandchildren? Sadly, the people who are often most admit about wanting their meat and dairy are the ones who are the most overweight and diseased.
So many illnesses such as heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis can be reversed with a whole food plant-based lifestyle. Slender For Life™ weight loss hypnosis can help you to create a large amount of NO desire for the Standard American Diet foods that make you fat and sick. I love to hear hypnosis weight loss clients share with me that in just a few weeks they have can’t remember the last time that they ate meat or dairy – and they haven’t even missed it! People who swear “I hate vegetables,” or “I don’t feel well when I eat grains,” are telling me that without the meat and dairy they are feeling so much physically, mentally and emotionally better living a whole food plant-based lifestyle. If you are ready to live an evidence-based plant-based lifestyle, give me a call or send me an email now.
