Does weightloss hypnotherapy work?

Hello,
I saw in the newspaper today that there is a weightloss seminar in a few days by a hypnotherapist that says he can help you lose weight permanently. He claims to help you end your cravings for sweets and fatty foods and how to naturally increase energy and metabolism. Has anyone tried one of these seminars or know anyone who has? It's $49.00 which isn't bad if it works "permanently". It's in just a couple of days, so please send me lots of opinions and replys so I can make an informed decision. If I do end up going, I'll let you know what I think. Thanks for your advice! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bouncing.gif">

Re: Does weightloss hypnotherapy work?

Hi,
I see no one has replied yet. The reason I'd be willing to try this is because my husband tried everything to quite smoking for 19 yrs. and nothing worked for more than 3 weeks. He went to a hypnotherapy seminar to quite smoking, and instantly he was a non-smoker with little cravings that were controlable he said. He was the most sceptical person about this technique, but he was willing to give it a try. It's been 5 months now and he's doing great. Hasn't smoked since before the seminar! That's the reason I thought weight loss may work to control the temptations of unhealthy food subconciously. What do you all think?????
Thanks

Give it a shot... you already know somebody personally that has been successful with hypnotherapy, so i would say you're a better judge of it's effectiveness than most of us. Do they offer any kind of money-back guarantees?

Re: Does weightloss hypnotherapy work?

I have a friend who has done a clinical hypnotherapy course and she is quite convinced as to the efficacy of hypnosis in weight loss. She keeps trying to get me to work with her on it and I will - one day, if only I can find the time!
