I'm seriously considering it! but does it work? I don't know a single person in real life who has been hypnotised for weight loss purposes and so am relying on you lot to convince me one way or the other. I've tried the slimming clubs until I am blue in the face. I'm a member of a gym. I know it's a mental thing, I'm intelligent enough to know how to lose weight, I just can't seem to actually do it! I'm hoping to 'unlock' the reasons I overeat and make lifestyle changes. Can I get anything on the NHS or would this have to be saved up for? Any help or advise would be appreciated, thank you

There are apps. EasyLoss gets good feedback. I think it's about £5 on Apple. Worth trying?

I haven't heard of it I will certainly research it, thank you

I don't know that it would unlock your reasons though. You may need a more interactive (i.e. Human) therapist for that. No idea if hypnobands are avail on NHS. I wouldn't think so but you could always have a chat with your GP about it. It helps other people with other addictions like smoking, so I don't see why it shouldn't have a chance of helping with food.

(Though obv some people have much more complex emotional reasons for overeating than they do for smoking)

sounds like it would be sensible to talk to GP.

Has anyone actually had any experience of it? I would really like to hear good and bad stories please

I use the EasyLoss virtual gastric band app. It's a bit of a ballache as it takes a while to move through the various stages but I find if I listen to it in the morning it has a definite immediate effect of curbing my hunger to the extent that I can't even finish a bowl of soup. It doesn't last long with me though, so it's definitely a case of needing to keep ' topped up' with the hypnosis

My method is calorie counting using MFP. I've been a bit hit and miss with sticking to my calorie goal but I've lost a stone and a bit since the start of September, so something is working.

I don't know anyone who has been hypnotised "properly" to lose weight though so I can't help you there.
