There is a solution
You might be wondering exactly how does this program work? If you’ve been a veteran of the weight loss wars then you probably already know almost everything there is about taking weight off and keeping it off. The problem lies in DOING IT for the rest of your life! Knowledge by itself just isn’t enough for most folks. That’s why lifestyle behavioral classes and support groups don’t work for most people.
The sky is green and the grass is blue. Let yourself feel how unsettling it is to read something so out of line with your inner perceptions. Feel the conflict created when new input is so opposite from what you’ve been taught all your life. This is what makes habit change such a problem. It’s why will is powerless over imagination. When your subconscious mind must choose between deeply rooted emotions and logic, emotions will almost always win.
You need a deeper kind of mental approach to make critical changes to habits you’ve spent a lifetime establishing. The Slender For Life™ Hypnotic Weight Management System has been designed to support and guide you through making these changes deep within your own mind’s internal computer—your subconscious mind. This system is made up of several strategies, that when combined, form the foundation for successfully managing your weight for the rest of your life.
As the first step, you’ll master the art of self-hypnosis.
The techniques presented for practicing self-hypnosis are very powerful and easy to learn.
Mastering these techniques empowers you to reinforce your healthy new lifestyle habits for the rest of your life, plus you can use these same techniques to make changes in any other area of your life.
Hypnosis allows you to bring previously unattainable goals into reach. Don’t worry about how to do it—this technique in self-hypnosis is easy to learn and use. It’s natural and completely safe.
The use of self-hypnosis allows you to retrain your mind to easily and effortlessly adopt the behaviors you desire. You will simultaneously replace your habits, beliefs and mental roadblocks that prevent lifetime weight control. When used correctly, you can use hypnosis to establish control by accomplishing the following:
- Let go of desire for fattening foods
- Increase desire for healthy foods
- Stop eating when satisfied (control portions)
- Only eat to nourish the body
- Reduce or eliminate emotional eating
- Learn new stress coping skills
- Put a halt to binge eating
- Improve self-esteem and confidence
- Motivate daily exercise
- Modify your mental cognitive patterns to support all of the goals above.
Phyllis, who has gone down 80 pounds, had a typical reaction to the hypnosis part of the program. “Probably like most people, I was a little apprehensive at first because hypnotism was new to me. I was a big chocoholic—candies and sweets, a lot of diet sodas rather than water. Almost more than a craving was using food as a comfort thing, so that I would eat large quantities of it in an attempt to make myself feel better. Now my cravings for sweets are gone and I no longer use food for comfort.”
The next step in our system is the identification and elimination of your mental barriers and roadblocks to making these changes. Behavioral psychologists refer to these mental blocks as cognitive patterns. These are your mental thought processes that dictate your self-limiting beliefs and values about food preference, eating habits, your physical appearance and self-image. These cognitive issues also include bad habits involving your coping skills when dealing with stress, anxiety and other emotions. Using hypnosis, you’ll learn how to overcome your roadblocks and also learn how to deal with emotional urges to eat.
As the next strategy, Slender For Life™ recommends a flexitarian low-fat and high-starch eating strategy. Why low fat and high starch? It’s healthy and it works. Throughout history, the healthiest people were the peasants. They ate fruits, vegetables and whole grains. They ate old European breads; they ate corn, rice and potatoes. The kings and queens ate the fatted calves and died of the diseases of obesity, cancer, heart attacks and high blood pressure.
In our era, Taiwan has a high percentage of healthy centenarians that live on root vegetables, rice and fruit. They use fish as a seasoning—not as their meal. One client likened this eating strategy to how her parents and grandparents lived. They killed a cow once a year and it fed a family of five for the entire year. When company came for Sunday dinner a chicken might be served. They lived from the garden in the summer and on root vegetables in the winter. I can hear the protests from everyone who bought into the low-carb craze, but if you read Chapter Five, you’ll learn about different kinds of carbohydrates and why this really is scientifically sound and not just a different fad diet.
It’s really all about getting back to a more natural, healthier way of eating where fats and sugars are treats— not the daily fare.
It may help to think of food choices as a continuum from horrible for your health to fabulous for your health, and starting from where you are right now, just start moving toward the better end of the spectrum, one food selection at a time. If you are deeply addicted to high fat and/or sugary, empty foods, you may want to make gradual substitutions and improvements. We’ll discuss this in more detail in Chapter Five. Despite the drama we’ve all seen on TV when the food police sweep in and empty someone’s refrigerator and pantry of virtually everything they were used to eating, making a 180 degree change can be challenging for most people. If you don’t have too many changes to make, you can probably be successful at making them all at once.
Lynn is the most extreme case I’ve encountered, and it’s taken her a decade to clean up her act, but she’s about 85 percent of the way toward her goal and much healthier for her efforts. “I grew up subsisting on junk food, and as soon as I was on my own, it’s all I ate. I never cooked. I ate all my meals in restaurants, and I gained weight steadily until I was very fat and very sick. I never ate vegetables or salads—and I mean never. My idea of a vegetable was French fries or carrot cake.
“Finally, in my 40s, my sky-high cholesterol scared me toward change. But I was too far gone to make wholesale changes, so I just started making a few substitutions at a time. Every January I made a new list of what I eat, and when I compared it to the previous year’s list, I could see I was making progress. I worked with a nutritionist to learn how to rethink my eating, and I dared myself to experiment more. I even started cooking for myself.
“The key for me has been to never say I can’t have a certain food. Deprivation doesn’t work for me. I may only eat carrot cake once a year now, but knowing I can eat it makes all the difference for me. I can live very nicely as a flexitarian. I’ve gone from guzzling four cans of Coke a day to sipping on one serving of watered down fruit juice as my afternoon treat. I’ve gone from living on frozen TV dinners to preparing vegetable- and starch-dominant dishes. I still eat some meat, but it’s not the star attraction anymore, and I often have meals that are meatless. My energy is so much better and all my tests come back in the normal range now.”
By following the guidelines in this book as an ideal, you should experience maximum weight release and enjoy considerable increase in your energy level. You may also notice improvements in your general health. Slender For Life™ clients attest that making changes using this eating plan is the EASIEST program of all to follow.
Pam writes, “I thought this was going to be hard. I thought no way am I giving up meat and cheese. But this week I have had no meat and no cheese. My food has been great. I feel better and I have more energy. I think this is doable!”
I have never known anyone to experience anything but positive effects from making this a lifetime eating philosophy.
Blood sugars usually become regulated in as little as three weeks, blood pressure lowers, people with irritable bowel syndrome and fibromyalgia report they are doing better and people with arthritis say that they are experiencing less pain.
The eating strategies I recommend are derived from plans designed by Dr. John McDougall and Dr. Neal Barnard, both medical doctors and nationally known experts in nutrition. In the Appendix I’ll also give you lots of resources for further exploration of this topic, including books by both doctors.
These strategies are supported by the guided hypnosis sessions provided on the companion CDs. Repeated listenings in conjunction with your own self-hypnosis exercises provide the keys to making Slender For Life™ work where all other diet plans fail. Not only will you be able to attain your goal weight, but you will be bolstered in your ability to maintain your perfect weight for life.
Finally, you’ll learn new attitudes about the role of physical activity in your weight release strategies. Before you turn up your nose and sink deeper into your easy chair, at least read Chapter Six with an open mind. You may notice that so far I’ve avoided discussing the “E” word. Well, here it comes: exercise does NOT have to be torturous. Just because Janice enjoys getting up at dawn to run for five miles every day, doesn’t mean that’s the answer for you. When you read all the suggestions I offer, I really believe you’ll be able to find something you can wiggle into your day—so to speak.
