ABOUT THE BOOK

Millions of people worldwide struggle every day to lose weight and fit into their ideal dress or pant size. Even when people try their hardest with the latest celebrity dieting craze, slimming down can be very difficult. There are thousands of fad diets on the market that are designed to speed up the weight loss process, many of which are unsustainable or difficult to manage. Alternative therapies act as a kinder, and often less challenging, alternative to dropping excess pounds. They adopt a natural approach that tends to your mental and physical well being.

Alternative therapies for weight loss are no longer exclusive to those who live in cosmopolitan areas. There has now been an emergence of therapists who have opened offices across the country, ready to offer their services. Even small towns have alternative therapists who can help you take approaches to your diet and overall health that you will not get from a fad diet or doctor. It is also possible to find herbal treatments in health food shops, as well as online.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Meditation for weight loss is ideal for those who are willing to take a patient approach to losing weight. As meditating is an art that comes with practice, it is better to move slowly rather than rushing the process and expecting miracles. As meditation focuses on building your self image, you need to assess why you eat and when you eat. If you are someone who tends to eat when you feel stressed or when you wish to cope with extreme emotions, meditation is likely to be ideal for you. If you are someone who eats on a constant basis, you may want to consider slightly more invasive therapies, such as acupuncture or herbal remedies.

Before heading for your first meditation session, decide whether you are capable of leading this therapy for yourself. Anyone can meditate; it does not require guidance. However, if you have a hard time committing to something on a regular basis or if you lack in confidence, you may wish to consider trying your first few sessions with a professional or with the aid of an MP3.

Hypnosis

If meditation appeals to you, but you feel that a speedier approach is needed, hypnosis is another option you might wish to consider. Hypnosis for weight loss is a therapy that has been endorsed by many celebrities, including famous singer Lily Allen, who claims to have gone from a size eight to a size four. After her astounding weight loss success, Lily spoke out about how she felt following hypnotherapy, stating "After the hypnotism, I want to go to the gym every day, otherwise I feel really bad." Hypnosis works on reprogramming the brain, encouraging you to naturally adopt eating and exercise habits that will make you lose weight...
