Hypnosis has been an effective tool in the obesity battle. Here are 4 studies supporting the effect of weight loss hypnosis.
Weight loss continues 2 years later: 109 people completed a behavioral treatment for weight management either with or without the addition of hypnosis. At the end of the 9-week program, both interventions resulted in significant weight reduction. At 8-month and 2-year follow-ups, the hypnosis subjects were found to have continued to lose significant weight, while those in the behavioral-treatment-only group showed little further change. (Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology)
Weight loss hypnosis 30 times more effective: Researchers investigated effects of hypnosis in weight loss for 60 females who were at least 20% overweight. Treatment included group hypnosis with metaphors for ego-strengthening, decision making and motivation, ideomotor exploration in individual hypnosis, and group hypnosis with maintenance suggestions. Hypnosis was more effective than a control group 17lbs vs. 0.5 lbs on follow-up. (Cochrane, Gordon; Friesen, J 1986)
Hypnosis clients lost more than 90% of non-hypnosis clients: Researchers analyzed 18 studies comparing a cognitive behavioral therapy, such as relaxation training, guided imagery, self-monitoring or goal setting with the same therapy plus hypnosis. Those who received the hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of the non-hypnosis, and maintained the weight loss two years after treatment ended. (Allison DB, Faith MS. 1996)
Hypnosis doubles effect of dieting: An analysis of five weight loss studies reported in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology in 1996 showed that hypnosis can more than double the effects of traditional weight loss approaches. (Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology in 1996)
