The Suddenly Slim diet program is an herbal weight loss program that offers a quick way to lose weight using nutritional shakes, pills, and supplements. This plan claims that in just ten days, it can boost the metabolism to help the body burn off more calories and lose weight without altering diet or exercise practices.

The products used in this plan have a variety of herbal ingredients often found in herb-based weight loss products. The program claims that the herbal ingredients work by quelling the appetite, boosting energy levels and rate of metabolism, and detoxifying the body.

The plan lasts for ten days, in which time the dieter drinks meal replacement shakes and takes diet pills. The shakes are supposed to satisfy and reduce hunger and provide the body with essential nutrition. The diet pills and supplements contain ingredients such as green tea, caffeine, and soy protein to promote health and losing weight.

Before trying any herbal supplement or diet drug, it is a good idea to ask your doctor about the safety of the diet and whether it is the right plan for you. Many herbal ingredients may have positive health effects, but as with any drug, there are health risks involved. One such case is with pills that have the popular herbal ingredient Ephedra, which is currently banned due to health risks (current formulations of Suddenly Slim products have replaced Ephedra with bitter orange).

The Suddenly Slim diet is considered by many to be a "fad diet" that works for some but not all. One of the reasons this program can fail to work is because it is hard to achieve permanent weight loss in such a short amount of time. Many people on the Suddenly Slim diet program, report losing weight but end up regaining it after the diet is completed. For most people, it takes commitment and lifestyle changes to successfully keep weight off. Usually, long-term commitments such as healthy eating habits and regular exercise will result in weight loss.

Unfortunately, many of us have difficulty maintaining a healthy lifestyle for keeping weight off. Many struggle to shed pounds because they experience uncontrollable appetites, emotional stress, food cravings, or a lack of motivation. Since these are mental or "thinking" problems, hypnosis has been recognized as a great tool for weight loss that helps eliminate these problems and helps people shed pounds naturally.

One of the best uses for weight loss hypnotherapy is for appetite regulation. Hypnosis therapy works by tapping into the power of the unconscious mind to treat the underlying causes of an out-of-control appetite. Many people struggle to control their appetites because they are "emotional eaters," who eat in reaction to their emotions, such as when they feel angry or sad. Hypnosis therapy breaks the unconscious link between our emotions and food to release emotional eaters from the impulse to overeat.

Another reason why a person may suffer from an out-of-control appetite is because the individual is unconsciously "conditioned" to eat in certain scenarios. For example, it is easy to "zone out" in front of the TV and consume a ton of junk food, even when you're not truly hungry. Hypnosis therapy helps re-train the unconscious mind to eliminate the urge to overeat, resulting in appetite suppression without drugs or pills.

Hypnosis therapy is also a powerful tool for fighting stress. Stress and tension often cause people to overeat, or reduces their motivation to exercise and care for their own health. Hypnotic techniques, especially the newer forms called Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), can make you keep an optimistic frame of mind and cope with stress in a manner that promotes your health and relaxation.

A lack of motivation is another major issue that stands between many dieters and success. Hypnosis and NLP techniques are the answer for enhancing motivation. First, you explore and list what is most important to you in your life. Then you use NLP to make yourself think that the important things in your life will enjoy gains if you exercise and improve your health and your appearance. This lets you stay powerfully motivated to exercise and slim down.

Anyone can learn hypnotic techniques and NLP from a good hypnosis diet CD guide. Hypnosis weight loss CDs use the remarkable abilities of the unconscious mind to make dieters take off weight. By extinguishing cravings and urges to overeat, the appetite is controlled in a non-invasive, efficient manner. Correctly formulated hypnotic suggestions will easily increase one's motivation to exercise and help achieve one's weight loss goals. Because hypnosis is so good at helping dieters to lose weight naturally once and for all, it has become an immensely popular weight loss aid that is suitable for everyone.
