Scientific research shows that sugar and fat trick the brain. Junk foods muddle your brain’s satiety-control mechanism, sending your appetite into hyperdrive. Fats and sweets actually change brain chemistry in a way that drives you to overconsume. Since 1990, Slender For Life™ hypnosis for weight loss has helped hundreds of people throughout the U.S. and in several countries to lose weight and keep it off. Weight loss hypnosis can truly help you to rewire your neurology so that you can create a healthy relationship with yourself and a healthy relationship with food.
Many of us with a long history of yo-yo dieting gave up on weight loss. I never thought it would be possible. But, hypnosis weight loss saved my life. I lost over 115 pounds, my blood pressure and blood sugar became healthy and normal.
How Sugar and Fat Trick the Brain into Wanting More Food
Scientific American, Ferris Jabr, January 1, 2016: It turns out that extremely sweet or fatty foods captivate the brain’s reward circuit in much the same way that cocaine and gambling do. For much of our evolutionary past, such calorie-dense foods were rare treats that would have provided much needed sustenance, especially in dire times. Back then, gorging on sweets and fats whenever they were available was a matter of survival. In contemporary society—replete with inexpensive, high-calorie grub—this instinct works against us. “For most of our history the challenge for human beings was getting enough to eat to avoid starvation,” Lowe says, “but for many of us the modern world has replaced that with a very different challenge: avoiding eating more than we need so we don’t gain weight.”
Research has shown that the brain begins responding to fatty and sugary foods even before they enter our mouth. Merely seeing a desirable item excites the reward circuit. As soon as such a dish touches the tongue, taste buds send signals to various regions of the brain, which in turn responds by spewing the neurochemical dopamine. The result is an intense feeling of pleasure. Frequently overeating highly palatable foods saturates the brain with so much dopamine that it eventually adapts by desensitizing itself, reducing the number of cellular receptors that recognize and respond to the neurochemical. Consequently, the brains of overeaters demand a lot more sugar and fat to reach the same threshold of pleasure as they once experienced with smaller amounts of the foods. These people may, in fact, continue to overeat as a way of recapturing or even maintaining a sense of well-being.
Emerging evidence indicates that some hunger hormones that usually act on the hypothalamus also influence the reward circuit.
I remember how demoralized I felt when I weighed 260 pounds. I ate crap, didn’t feel like moving my body and had no self-respect. Hypnosis for weight loss helped me to change all of that. I was able to create a healthy relationship with myself and with food. 20 years ago, after a life-long history of yo-you dieting, I was able to lose the weight and discover that I love to be active. I’m happier, feel better and I have abundant energy.
