Have you had it with dieting? Do you take off a couple of pounds, and gain back more? Do you get your hopes up every time a "miracle" diet arrives on the scene, only to find out that you still can't beat your cravings?

What you need is a diet that will let you lose weight by sitting and watching the television. Think it's a daydream? Continue reading.

You have probably read and heard the statistics: Society is getting fatter than ever before. From young to old, the numbers tell the tale: Obesity is epidemic. Why?

There are many explanations, but here is one explanation that I do not think you've heard: We have been programmed, hypnotized--if you will--to pay for and consume more and larger portions of everything, in particular junk food, sugary soft drinks and fast food.

How did this take place? What could possibly have such a dominant, insidious result on so many millions of people? The answer is sitting in your living room. It is your TV.

Yes, advertisers have slowly and methodically hypnotized you. They peddle their empty calories using the most powerful and effective marketing medium ever invented: television commercials.

Commercials are carefully crafted to entice and motivate. They can literally make your mouth water as you watch a sizzling steak being delivered to a table or a succulent candy bar being devoured by a happy, and athletic actor.

What is happening to you during these commercials? You are being hypnotized! Your mind is being programmed to want...even NEED...a candy bar of your own, right NOW!

The television screen is zoomed in on the candy bar so it covers the entire screen. You can almost see every grain of processed sugar, because they get so close!

And guess what? You are probably salivating right now, at this very moment, just from this description? Your mind has conjured up images that were stored deep in your unconscious from when you watched commercials long ago. Can you see how influential the video images on television can be? Yes, they can control even your physical reactions!

If you are familiar with hypnosis, then you know that it's the alpha level of consciousness. You pass through this dream like state of mind as you fall asleep at night. And you pass through dream like state again as you awaken in the morning. Research has proven that if you watch much TV, you are in this alpha state for two-thirds of your viewing time. What can you do to beat this indoctrination?

First, of course, you can stop watching television commercials. But what about the programming that advertisers have already embedded in your subconscious? How do you remove it and reprogram your thoughts? Video hypnosis made you put pounds on, and video weight loss hypnosis will supply your solution.

If you have read this far and you still think that I am jesting, I can assure you that I am not kidding! Video lose weight hypnosis is a reality and a United States Patent was even granted on the technology! Here is a semi-technical explanation of why and how it works:

The average person feels cravings and oral urges for two main reasons:
A. When you feel tense, you feel compelled to put something into your mouth because it provides relaxation and pleasure.

B. When a man pairs eating with any other behavior, the other behavior will trigger cravings and a compulsion to eat.

Let us talk about Part "B" first. Over 70% of our population learns much more quickly and easily based on what they see, rather then by what they hear. Think about it for a moment: If you sense an urge to eat or smoke as you watch TV, it's because your unconscious recorded the video image of either a cigarette in your hand, or food in your hand, and then associated that mental image, with the mental picture of the television. From that point on, every time that you watch TV, your subconscious mind flashes the mental movie of the food or cigarette in your hand, and you experience urges and cravings.

So you have actually "programmed" your subconscious to make you feel urges and cravings as a "conditioned response" to watching television. The same thing happens when you eat in your car, or while on the phone, etc.

Video weight loss hypnosis will erase the conditioned responses. It will program your unconscious mind to have the television (or whatever) trigger unconscious images of you watching the television without eating.

When the video weight loss hypnosis makes you lose your unconscious image of food, then you will lose your cravings. When you see yourself in a behavior, you get a compulsion to generate that behavior. So with video lose weight hypnosis, you will actually get a compulsion to reject food when you watch television.

But what about Part "A"? Our feelings of tension are created by our thoughts. If you think unpleasant thoughts, you feel stressed and upset. If you think cheerful thoughts, you feel happy and pleasant.

If you think an unpleasant thought while you are sitting at your computer, your mind can associate that thought with the computer. And thereafter, when you are working on your computer, you have a conditioned response, your mind flashes to that unpleasant thought and you experience the feeling of tension.

The techniques used in video weight loss hypnosis are based on Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). This technology works based on the utilization of a person's existing thought processes instead of post-hypnotic suggestion. With Neuro-Linguistic Programming, we use the thought processes that are creating your problems, to eliminate your problems.

Video lose weight hypnosis can program your subconscious mind to use unpleasant thoughts as a trigger for blissful thoughts. So if you start to think of something that is unpleasant, your unconscious will automatically change to a blissful thought in a millisecond. You become relaxed, so there are no feelings of tension to cause you to feel oral urges and cravings. And without an appetite to overeat, it's much easier to lose weight and keep it off permanently.
