Chocoholics! Overcome your Chocolate Addiction!

Are you a chocolate addict?Hypnotherapy for Health Leicester

When it comes to chocolate addiction, chocoholics usually find the best of intentions get thrown out the window. No matter how hard you ‘put your foot down’, the chocolate usually finds some way to convince you to eat more.

So why is it that mere motivation or willpower is not enough? Anybody who experiences cravings for any substance finds that simply trying not to eat it falls short of what is required to quit successfully.

This is because this ‘decision’ is made at a conscious level whereas the chocolate addiction is being driven unconsciously.

What you need is a boost to your unconscious determination so that the desire to remain free of chocolate addiction becomes stronger than the desire to eat chocolate.

Overcoming your chocolate addiction will help you gently re-educate your unconscious mind to give you more freedom to choose when it comes to chocolate.

Why not see if you can give up chocolate from now until Easter, how much weight do you think you could lose by doing that? Get in touch to see how chocolate therapy in Leicester can help you today.

Is it going to be New Year New You for 2013?

Hypnosis Health Leicester 

Its happening already isn’t it, the dreaded Christmas countdown is already upon us! If you follow Santa, the Coca Cola Truck or Rudolph Reindeer on Twitter you will already know ‘how many sleeps till Christmas’

The radios are now playing all those classic Christmas hits that we know and love, they sound fun now, how long will it be before they become tiresome? As well as all the festive movies on the TV. – Are we having Happy Holidays or a Merry Christmas?

No one wants to think about dieting or being overly healthy over Christmas. It is often the perfect excuse to eat, drink and be merry to complete excess ‘go on, it’s Christmas’ you hear everywhere you go. But just because it is the season, it doesn’t mean you have to take complete leave of your senses. How are you going to fit into that sparkly little¬†party dress or dinner suit if the pounds start creeping on now?

Christmas dinners on their own, with all the lovely trimmings can come in at 2000 calories or more. By the time the Roses tin has been round, mince pies ate and left over turkey sandwiches consumed washed down with lots of mulled wine, how many notches will your belt be going up by?

One pound of fat on your body is made up by 3500 calories. Thats quite some going don’t you think? See how easily it can creep up on you? By all means have a great and happy Christmas but don’t make it extra hard for yourself in the New Year.

We should be eating 3 – 5 times a day, 7 days a week. The majority of those meals will not be out socialising, so be careful where you can, and indulge yourself when it matters.

For those of you thinking of stopping smoking in the New Year, I will be running a special promotion for you, keep in touch for further updates.

Take care all, Shelly ūüôā

Losing Weight As You get Older

Leicester Therapy Centre

The older we get the harder it is to lose weight unfortunately.

We know its unhealthy to be overweight. We know that additional body fat can cause problems for our internal organs, our blood pressure and our bones and joints which which are all ailments that appear to rise with age.

This is another good reason to to reduce weight and improve your health and quality of life. With age the importance of weight loss can jostle for position with all the other responsibilities, lifestyle and health niggles we face.

But as medical experts continue to predict the rise of obesity especially with our reliance on processed foods and sugary drinks we must reassess our priorities and perhaps refocus. Obesity shortens lifespan and can lead to classic diseases such as heart failure and diabetes.

So achieving and maintaining a healthy weight as you get older may be the best way of improving your health and prolonging your life.

To help you refocus, see how hypnosis for health and weight loss can help you.

Know Your Nuts

Leicester Therapy Centre

There is a lot of talk about eating nuts and seeds as a healthy snack, and quite right too.

A good variety of raw nuts like almonds, pecans, macadamia and brazil nuts in your diet add many health benefits giving you a whole host of powerful vitamins, minerals and fats, essential for your good health.

Nuts and seeds contain heart healthy fats which maintain the normal structure of every cell in our body. The problem with nuts and weight loss is when we eat too much of them. A small handful of raw sunflower seeds can be 150 cals, have that twice a day for a week and you have added 2100 calories into your diet which will impact your weight loss goals.

Incorporate them into your meal planning and if necessary measure out your portions in advance. I know it’s all to easy to scoff a good few anything¬†before you get to the actual portion part. Have say around 20g of mixed nuts with an apple as one of your daily snacks and you will see how it¬†diminshes hunger pangs¬† as well as giving you important protein based energy.

Try it for a week instead of your usual snack and see how you get on.

Do you suffer from bloating, IBS or stomach cramps?

Hypnosis Health Clinics Leicester UK; Dubai UAE

Many people suffer from bloating, IBS, stomach cramps ect and its an awful feeling. There are many over the counter remedy but natures way is always the best way, unfortunately these remedies don’t have the financial backing as the super companies do, so their benefits can be lost along the way.

If you have trouble going to the loo for whatever reason, you need to add Psyllium Husks to your diet.

‘Psyllium husk is an excellent source of soluble dietary fibre derived from the small herbaceous plant Plantago. Dietary fibre can help promote regularity and support heart health as well as helping with satiety after meals.

Psyllium Husk Powder can be a convenient way to increase your intake of dietary fibre. It has the ability to swell up to 50 times its initial volume when added to liquid which plays an important role in maintaining regularity and gastrointestinal health. It has also been shown to help lower cholesterol.

A daily fibre intake of at least 25 grams is recommended for good health, but on average people consume only 10 to 15 grams.

Psyllium husk is often used in high fibre breakfast cereals to boost the fibre content’

This can be bought very cheaply from Ethnic food stores or you will find it easily online, add it to your daily diet to see the difference it can make to you, immediately! All you need is a good spoonful added to a glass of water taken in the morning with breakfast, it couldn’t be easier to keep yourself healthy on the inside.

I have it every morning, give it a go and let me know what you think?

Why You Should Be Using Coconut Oil

Hypnosis Health Clinic Leics UK. Dubai UAE

What oils do you use to cook with? Vegetable oils, Olive oils, butter or ghee? Different oils have many different properties and you absolutely need fats and oils in your body for good health – particularly if you are trying to loose weight.

Vegetable oils have no place in your diet, its highly processed and you will find this in abundance in your cakes, biscuits, sweets and crisps. Real Olive oil is very beneficial for good heart health and is best consumed as a drizzle, heating it can change it’s molecular structure so you lose the benefits.

Butter is ok to eat. There, I said it. What do you think is better for you, a completely dairy natural product with no additives or a tub of trans-fat lardiness that will NEVER ROT. EVER. That’s right, leave a tub of margarine or low fat spread out in the kitchen and it will stay exactly the same. You could even leave it out in the garden for years and not a bird, animal or insect will touch it. What do you think that’s doing to your insides?

A lot of people use those 1 kcal spray oils, take a look at the ingredients in these things. If you must, please use sparingly and rarely. Having tried to cook (unsuccessfully) various ways without oil, minimal oil, oil replacements and ‘steam frying in water’ I am thankful to have discovered the wonder of cooking with coconut oil. So beneficial for you, you can eat it by the spoonful.

For the science part, take a look at this article by the Huffington Post and get yourself fit and healthy with Coconut Oil in your cooking.
