In the Seattle hypnosis office of Slender For Life™ I say yes to more fruit and fewer calories for school lunches. One of the big challenges in working with school children of any age for weight loss is what to do about school lunch. The good news is that kids are naturals at weight loss self-hypnosis. And, with hypnosis for weight loss, kids have a winning edge over the junk food. I have always been impressed with how quickly and naturally kids learn self-hypnosis. As a parent you may have concerns about hypnosis so I have a hypnosis course just for you. Most school lunches are filled with fat, sugar and processed food. Lets take a step in ending childhood obesity by supporting our schools in cutting calories.
On October 20, 2009, Reuters had an article titled, More Fruit, Fewer Calories Urged For School Lunches. that read in part: U.S. children should get more fruits, vegetables and whole grains in their school meals even though this will push up costs, and calories should be limited, a panel recommended to the federal government on Tuesday.
As obesity among adolescents continues to rise, a report from the Institute of Medicine, an arm of the National Academies, proposed updating school meal programs to meet nutritional needs and foster better eating habits, but recognized healthier, fresher ingredients would boost costs, especially at breakfast where fruit servings would increase.
Many school cafeterias serve such fare as hot dogs, chicken nuggets and french fries and a dearth of fresh produce. Under the new guidelines, most school food providers would need more government money to help pay for food, training and equipment, the report said.
“Today overweight children outnumber undernourished children, and childhood obesity is often referred to as an epidemic in both the medical and community settings.”
Obesity rates among U.S. children have doubled in the last 20 years, and almost a third of American children are either overweight or obese. The epidemic of obesity is linked to a host of health problems such as higher risks for heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Read More Fruit, Fewer Calories Urged For School Lunches in its entirety.
Seattle hypnosis (office on Bainbridge Island, too) is all about ending childhood obesity and cutting calories in school lunches is a an important element. I have spent a great amount of time brainstorming ideas with children and their parents about healthy school lunch alternatives. One alternative to fat, sugar an processed food in school lunches would be to have microwaves available for students to warm up their lunches. (Yes – I know the concerns about microwaves – but I will still take that over a hot dog or peperoni pizza!)
I love working with kids. they are such naturals when it comes to self-hypnosis. Weight loss is tough enough for anybody, and I think it is even tougher for kids. But weight loss self-hypnosis sure helps make it easier. And, when kids learn hypnosis, they can use it for their school work, sports and pretty much any other area of their life.

Note: Statements and testimonials are representative of our top active participants using hypnosis. Some people may make little or no change with hypnosis. Why? It does take effort to make change (in any system) and it just won’t happen if you do not learn and apply the tools. Worse, some people never even complete the training and sessions and therefore never see any results. These claims are not a guarantee of your change, and may not be average of participants. Individual results will vary greatly and in accordance to your commitment, effort, determination, hard work, and ability to follow directions. Summary: As in any self-change program and with everything in life – you get out what you put in.
