Sugar and Weight Loss

I have had several phone calls since the holidays from people interested in weight loss hypnosis who tell me that they are addicted to sugar. It seems that they can’t keep the muffins, cookies and candy out of their mouth. They tell me that they start out each morning resolved to eat healthy and lose weight and by lunch time they are well into their sugar high. Hypnosis for weight loss can help you overcome your food addiction. If you are ready to take back the power you have given to sugar and other processed foods, weight loss hypnosis with Slender For Life™ can work for you.



Sugar and Excess Weight: Evidence Mounts

WebMD, January 15, 2013: Eating less sugar is linked with weight loss, and eating more is linked with weight gain, according to a new review of published studies.

The really interesting finding is that increasing and decreasing sugar had virtually identical results [on weight], in the opposite direction of course.

Since 2003, the World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended that intake of “free” sugars be limited to 10% of calories daily. The WHO is in the process of updating that recommendation, and it commissioned the review of this research to help that process.

Free sugars are defined as sugars added to foods by the manufacturer, cook, or consumer, or those naturally present in fruit juice, syrups, and honey.

In some of the studies evaluated, adults were told to lower their sugar intake.

Those who did lowered their weight slightly. Over the course of the studies, which lasted for up to eight months, the average weight loss was about 1.7 pounds.

Adults who increased their sugar intake over the same average time period increased their weight nearly the same amount.

When they looked only at sugary beverages the link between a sugary beverage habit and being overweight in children was strong.

Those who had the highest intake after a year were about 1.5 times as likely to be overweight or obese as those with the lowest intake.

Keeping sugar to 10% of calories, if on a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet, would mean eating and drinking just 200 calories a day of sugars.

One way to cut down is to eat whole fruit and not drink sweetened juices. Sugars from whole fruits have not been linked with weight gain.

Seventeen years after losing over 100 pounds, I still remember the sugar cravings that drove me to the bakery, coffee shop and cookie jar. The pounds were piling on and no matter how hard I resolved to diet, I continued to gain weight.

Then, I discovered hypnosis for weight loss. I lost over 100 pounds, I became physically active and I ate healthy foods that actually nourished my body. Since 1996 I have had the honor of teaching weight loss hypnosis to clients in my Seattle weight loss hypnosis and Bainbridge Island weight loss hypnosis offices so that they too can over come their food addictions and take control of their life, what they eat, how much they eat and their weight. Learn self hypnosis and discover how you can support yourself in loving, joyous ways.
