Hypnosis Over 30 Times as Effective for Weight Loss

Effectiveness of hypnosis as an adjunct to behavioral weight management

Bolocofsky DN, Spinler D, Coulthard-Morris L

Abstract

This study examined the effect of adding hypnosis to a behavioral weight-management program on short- and long-term weight change. 109 subjects, who ranged in age from 17 to 67, completed a behavioral treatment either with or without the addition of hypnosis. At the end of the 9-week program, both interventions resulted in significant weight reduction.

However, at the 8-month and 2-year follow-ups, the hypnosis clients showed significant additional weight loss, while those in the behavioral treatment exhibited little further change. More of the subjects who used hypnosis also achieved and maintained their personal weight goals. The utility of employing hypnosis as an adjunct to a behavioral weight-management program is discussed.

Two Years Later: Hypnosis Subjects Continues to Lose Significant Weight

A behavioral treatment for weight management was completed by 109 people either with or without the addition of hypnosis. Significant weight loss was accomplished by both interventions. However, at the 8-month and 2-year follow-ups, the hypnosis subjects were found to have continued to lose significant weight, while those in the behavioral-treatment-only group showed only minimal additional weight reduction.
