The Dallas Hypnosis Convention 2012 is April 19 – 21, and I am excited! I am especially excited about Saturday, April 21. I will be speaking 1:30-5:00, on “If It’s Not About The Food … Then What?” There are countless diets available today and people can lose weight on most any diet. Few people succeed in attaining their goal and maintaining that goal weight throughout their life. Even people who have had stomach surgery struggle to keep the weight off and sometimes gain it back. Diets don’t work and it’s not about the food! If taking the weight off and keeping it off is not about the food then what is it all about?
“If It’s Not About The Food … Then What? “ will explore six mental and emotional roadblocks that keep people from losing the weight.
- Commitment: What are the stages of change?
- Discomfort: Food as a drug of choice.
- Inner Control: After all of these failures, will I ever be successful?
- Perfectionism: Since I’ve eaten the cookie I’ve blown the whole day.
- Secondary Gain: This weight is protection?
- Stress Eating: Coping with life.
Each of these roadblocks will be explored and methods of working with them will be offered. Be more successful with your weight loss clients. Find out how to ascertain your client’s roadblocks and offer them the tools to progress through these barriers so that they may take the weight off and keep it off.
