Losing Weight For Good in 2012

Article by Steve Miller

We caught up with Steve Miller, presenter of Fat Families and weight loss and confidence coach, to ask if he could help us kick start our post Christmas weight loss efforts.

Q: What is your top tip for 2012 to keep the excess weight off for good?

A: I think there are two. First of all I recommend people use mind programming tool.s I always use clinical hypnotherapy with my clients because I find it brings about the most effective weight loss. Rigid diets are doomed in my book so i recommend people use the 80-20 rule eating healthily for 80% of the time and some treats 20% of the time. Of course always be aware of portion sizes!

Q: What is your top tip for managing portion sizes?

A: There are three things to do here. Firstly think before you fill your plate, secondly be conscious of your eating and thirdly make sure each meal takes a least 20 minutes to complete.

Clinical hypnotherapy for weight loss

Q: You are an advocate of clinical hypnotherapy for weight loss. How does this work exactly?

A: Hypnotherapy works by programming the unconscious mind. It installs new ways of controlling food and as a result you begin to eat less and eat better.

Q: Are you an advocate of applying tough love on ourselves to lose weight?

A: Absolutely! I often tell myself to quit moaning and stop making excuses. At the same time though it is important to praise yourself for doing well; after all motivation is carrot and stick.

Q: Do you set any ground rules for people wanting to lose weight?

A: Yes. There are three. 1. Eat 3 meals and day and balance the 80-20 rule 2. Keep your mind busy so you don’t become bored and pick at food and 3. Link your weight loss to an end goal such as getting a new job or a new relationship.

Q: What is the weight loss event about that you are running on 21st January in Birmingham?

A: I will be hosting the event to help like minded people ditch excuses, build a plan for long term weight loss and showing them how to use self hypnosis as part of the journey. Of course it will all be delivered with fun!

Q: Finally what would you say to anyone doubting their ability to lose weight?

A: Well, I know it doesn’t come easy to people but I would say begin by making a plan of what they can do to eat less, eat better and move more. Then consider visiting a hypnotherapist for a few session to help change bad eating habits. Finally always make sure you hang out with people that inspire you. Ditch the drains!
