Hypnosis Can More Than Double the Effects of Traditional
Weight Loss Approaches
An analysis of five
weight loss studies reported in the Journal of Consulting and
Clinical Psychology in 1996 showed that the "… weight loss
reported in the five studies indicates that hypnosis can more
than double the effects" of traditional weight loss approaches.

Clinical Psychology in 1996 (Vol. 64, No. 3, pgs 517-519).
Hypnosis More Than Doubled Average Weight Loss

treatments for weight reduction, additional data were obtained
from authors of two studies. Analyses indicated that the
benefits of hypnosis increased substantially over time.

Two Years Later: Hypnosis Subjects Continued To Lose
Significant Weight109 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.

Hypnosis As "An Effective Way To Lose Weight"A study of 60 females who were at least 20% overweight and not
involved in other treatment showed hypnosis is an effective way
to lose weight.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical
Hypnosis Subjects Lost More Weight Than 90% of Others
and Kept it OffResearchers analyzed 18 studies
comparing a cognitive behavioral therapy such as relaxation
training, guided imagery, self monitoring, or goal setting with
the same therapy supplemented by hypnosis.
Those who received
the hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of those not
receiving hypnosis and maintained the weight loss two years
after treatment ended.

Hypnosis Over 30 Times as Effective for Weight LossInvestigated the effects of hypnosis in weight loss for 60
females, 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: an average of 17 lbs. lost
by the hypnosis group vs. an average of 0.5 lbs lost by the
control group, on follow-up.

by University of Connecticut scientists, dieters who tried
hypnosis lost almost twice as much weight."

vary, so do results, and that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis.
Results are ultimately achieved through the client's own
personal efforts at applying these techniques over time for
which each client must accept full responsibility. Relaxation
