Seattle weight loss hypnosis clients learn how to create a positive future fantasy of living the rest of their life, Slender For Life™. If you are like me, you lost weight and then regained it and more so many times that achieving your healthy goal weight and maintaining it seems impossible. I know that 17 years ago when I weighed 260 pounds I had a very negative future fantasy of living my life fat and sick. Today, thanks to hypnosis for weight loss, healthy eating and exercise, I have a very positive future fantasy of living a slender and active life.

Visualizing the Future Can
Aid in Weight Loss

PsychCentral, September 2, 2013: A new study has found that behavioral interventions that improve the ability to delay gratification work just as well with overweight and obese women as with lean women.

According to the study, women who thought about future scenarios were able to postpone gratification, whether they were overweight or thin.

This research is certainly welcome news for people who have struggled to lose weight, because it shows that when people are taught to imagine, or simulate the future, they can improve their ability to delay gratification.

Many people have difficulty resisting the impulse for immediate gratification. Instead, they engage in “delay discounting,” in which they discount future rewards in favor of smaller, immediate rewards.

This tendency is associated with greater consumption of highly caloric, ready-to-eat foods, he said. Experts speculate that if people could modify delay discounting, they would be more successful at losing weight.

Now we have developed a treatment for this. We can teach people how to reduce delay discounting, where they learn how to mentally simulate the future in order to moderate their behavior in the present.

The researchers found that those who engaged in the future thinking exercise were able to reduce delay discounting.

A study published earlier this year demonstrated that overweight and obese women ate less when they imagined themselves in enjoyable future scenarios. This also reduced their inclination to engage in delay discounting.
