Fear of hunger

I received this email from Doreen in Cathedral City who asked about hypnosis for fear of hunger.

“I have been overweight all of my life. I’m a champion at yo-yo dieting. Recently in a conversation with my sister I realized that I have a fear of hunger. In fact, the thought of being hungry almost terrifies me.

I don’t even know the last time that I was actually even hungry. I eat so that I don’t get hungry.

Can hypnosis help me to overcome my fear of hunger and to lose weight? I have about 100 pounds to lose and I am hoping that you can help me.


Fear of hunger

I ate so that I would not be hungry

“Hi Doreen,

I so identify with you. For most of my life I too was overweight, I mastered yo-yo dieting and I ate so that I would not be hungry. I can remember the almost terror that I felt at the thought of becoming hungry so I made sure that I never got hungry.

Twenty-three years ago, thanks to weight loss hypnosis, I let go of 120 pounds and I have kept it off ever since. I no longer fear hunger, in fact, I welcome hunger! Hunger is a wonderful thing! It means that I now get to eat.

Here are a couple of thoughts for you to consider:

  • True physical hunger takes about 90-minutes from the first inkling of hunger until you really need to eat. It’s like noticing that you have a ¼ tank of gas. It’s not a crisis, you don’t have to stop immediately to get gas, but soon it will be time to refuel and you have time to plan ahead. The need to eat immediately is mental and emotional hunger.
  • Most likely, you are never far from food. You probably have more than adequate amount of food in your cupboard. Your neighbors most likely have food and you are probably within a few minutes of a grocery store or restaurant. As one client recently observed. “You will not starve between breakfast and lunch.”

Doreen, weight loss hypnosis can help you to end your fear of hunger and to lose weight and keep it off. That’s the goal, right, to maintain your healthy ideal weight throughout your life? And, wouldn’t it be great to have peace of mind about food and to joyously savor the taste of healthy food?
