Being overweight is the most common medical problem of this decade with as many or more collateral health risks as people who smoke or use tobacco. Hypnosis is proven to be a wonderful tool for working with obesity, however living in a culture that wants fast everything creates a problem for those who want hypnosis today and to be twenty pounds slimmer tomorrow.
Overweight and Obesity is a national public health crisis, and the problem is getting worse. In 2009 East Tennessee reported that 20% to 24% of the population was greater than thirty pounds overweight. In January 2012 that number rose to 49%. Unhealthy weight leads to a greater risk for several chronic diseases including heart disease and diabetes.
Regular physical activity and good nutrition can help promote healthy weight and prevent chronic disease.
