Gastric Bypass Hypnosis Surgery Halfway Point

As I mentioned before, I was going to try Rena Greenberg's Gastric Bypass Hypnosis Surgery program, a non-invasive tool to help me lose weight.

The program consists of several CDs, one of which is the actual "surgery." Greenberg's voice guides you through the experience of having gastric bypass surgery so that your subconscious mind believes that you actually had the surgery, resulting in your firm belief that your stomach is now the size of a golf ball.

The experience is described in explicit detail -- surgeon, nurses, anesthesiologists, operating room -- the whole shebang. After listening to the CD (during which I was relaxed yet fully awake) I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about the "hypnosis" diet.

The answer so far is yes. After listening to the initial CD (which is then followed by listening to the reinforcement CD at least once a day thereafter), I felt an immediate change in my body. Let my clarify that -- I actually noticed a change in my mind.

When I went to eat breakfast the next day, I was satisfied with several bites of food, as opposed to an entire breakfast. To give you an idea, let's say that I normally eat two eggs, two strips of bacon, and a slice of sugar-free wheat bread. After listening to the disc, I was satisfied with one egg and one slice of bacon.

I was really surprised (see skeptical above) that my mind had actually accepted the fact that I needed less food to feel satisfied, but it did. When I would get hungry throughout the day, I would eat a few bites of food and feel satisfied, not full, not stuffed, but satisfied. I was just no longer hungry.

I'll admit that I have not used the reinforcement CD as much as I should, and because of that I have been able to drink a diet soda here and there (the CDs also turn your mind against unhealthy food) and once drove through Sonic at midnight and picked up a junior cheeseburger (although I couldn't finish eating it).

But my eating habits have greatly changed. I eat three really small meals a day and have started taking walks (she also reinforces the fact that we need to care for our bodies). My official weight loss is at 22 pounds as of yesterday. So far, so good. I'll keep you posted with a follow-up in another two weeks.

There are so many people world wide who are suffering from over weight problems and want to get rid of it in a natural way. Hypnosis have worked so well for such people. The information is very nice related to it.

halfway point? I am glad that you have been able to lose 22 pounds.  Very good for you.  But who cares how much you can lose in a month?  The real results are what you are weighing after two to five years.  Unfortunately most people (about 98%) can not keep the weight off.  Only bariatric surgery has been shown to keep the weight off long term in a large majority of the patients and has many studies that show decreased mortality and medical complications as compared with the group staying obese. Society needs to stop blaming the obese and ignoring the physiology behind obesity.  Sure there is a behavioral element, but genetics plays a huge role.  Learn the truth, don't be an ignorant bigot.

Thank you Ily for this excellent article. Yes, medical hypnosis and self-hypnosis can be very helpful to anyone that is trying to lose weight. Both hypnosis and self hypnosis have beenproven to help increase motivation to exercise, inspire better food choicesand, ultimately achieve significant weight loss.

I am practicing physician and hypnotherapist and have usedhypnotherapy with hundreds of weight loss patients with excellent results. For those readers that are trying to lead healthier lives, I highly recommendit.

Hey Doc,

I had never really given hypnosis much thought and when I did, I was skeptical to say the least. Now though I'm pretty much in shock. Especially your point about exercise. Since using the program I have been walking one to two miles per day whereas before I felt like walking around my block was an insurmountable task. I definitely think that the hypnosis has had an impact on my motivation to exercise as well as my portion control.
