Last year it was reported that UK researchers discovered a commonly occurring gene variant that may explain why some people become overweight while others do not. The obesity gene FTO is found in more than half of some populations. The findings were published in Science, the journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
The great news is that those of us who have the FTO gene can overcome our genetic predisposition for obesity and we can be fit and healthy! A study by the University of Maryland School of Medicine shows that exercise can help to prevent weight gain even among people with the FTO gene. In the study, those who had the gene but maintained high levels of activity weighed about the same as those who didn’t have it. In other words, just because I am genetically predisposed to obesity (and I used to weigh over 100 pounds more than I do now) does not mean I have to be a victim to my genes! I do have a choice and I can take control of what I eat, how much I eat and ultimately my weight and I can move my body. I have a choice and I chose to live Slender For Life™.
My book, Becoming Slender For Life and it’s Becoming Slender For Life hypnosis audio reinforcement system teach the Light Switch Self Hypnosis and shows you how easy self hypnosis is. At Slender For Life™ we use the Light Switch Self Hypnosis technique as an easy way for you to use hypnotherapy to change your eating behaviors and to no longer be a victim to the FTO obesity gene.
Studies show that the benefits of using hypnosis for weight loss increased substantially over time. (Kirsch, Irving (1996). Hypnotic Enhancement of Cognitive-Behavioral Weight Loss Treatments–Another meta-reanalysis. Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 64 (3), 517-519.)
