I have been working all this year to put together my Hypnosis For Streaming package with a simple online income plan for affiliates.
The real SECRET is to read this page and take ACTION.
Any questions at all JUST call me on 07401 719619 or Skype keithaw2k1 me.
Online Income – No Age Barrier – Please Read This And Fully Understand My Plan.
Each week I join a group of people on a weekly masterclass in internet marketing and making online income. In fact the timing of the online meeting is a nuisance to me because I have to get back from badminton and am always hot and disheveled – we are visible on the screen to other participants – I might not look good but it is great that they can’t smell me.
The participants on the Zoom(great webinar service)masterclass call are a great source of knowledge – and I never want to miss the session. I will tell you more about David and Jen who run this group, below.
The participants all have different niches products, experience etc. One lady is a gardener and she is learning how to put out information products about her field.
The Online Income Issue
There is a fundamental issue though with making money online. You need to know how to do it.
It doesn’t just happen. When doing anything online – you have to learn a few tricks to make things happen.
The knowledge you need gets labeled as Internet Marketing;
building mailing lists
social media promotion
etc etc and so on – always more to learn
Yes – Lots to learn – but great fun when you begin to see the action happening and income coming in.
All Great If You Have Products – But What if You Don’t?
Well – One of the best ways to make money online is to sell other peoples products.
NO that is not strictly TRUE — It is about pre-selling – but that is part of the training.
Affiliate programs are what you join and GUESS WHAT! I have one which I am inviting you to join. More about that below – but first of all some background knowledge – an inside look into my thinking.
[**PLEASE NOTE** I Have Moved Away From This BUT It Explains Why I Made Big Changes]
What we have at ‘Hypnosis for Download’ are well over 200 evergreen products to promote. They are audios and videos that are downloadable and sell worldwide – with immediate delivery.
Ideal evergreen products – great value and we have zero refunds. Digital for immediate Delivery – Good products, worldwide audience.
Now obviously I can advertise the website and sell the products myself – and I do – but my aim is much more ambitious than that.
I WANT to welcome some affiliates, BECAUSEpromotion by others is preferable and adds social proof.
My original approach to get affiliates seemed sensible but in reality I was wrong – and I realised I needed to change my approach.
What was my mistake?
I assumed that the best affiliates would be hypnotherapists as they would have the knowledge of the subject and would be able to pre-sell potential purchasers.
That may well be true – BUT what most of them didn’t have was the internet marketing training and knowledge. Most of them did not know how to attract traffic, build mailing lists and attract targeted potential clients via social media.
We had a couple of affiliates who made some money but I began to question whether the the affiliates needed to be hypnotherapists. Mmmmmmm !! ??
The most important thing is that new affiliates need to know all about the products AND have training.
Everything Was Evaluated Early This Year.
The conclusions were clear and can be summed up in this short list
The affiliate program software we had used was not great – find better
The problem with the promoting individual products in our store was too complicated – make the affiliate package simpler.
The internet was now very mobile and downloading of products was a nuisance – better to be streamed and deliverable to any internet connected device.
The affiliates on board needed more training – and I was not the best person to provide that – I was already a member of NAMS and I knew they were the team to work with.
The affiliates do not need to be hypnotherapists – as long as they have some access to the products and understand how to build lists and get traffic etc.
There was no commitment from many potential affiliates that joined and took NO ACTION – so get them to be paying members before offering them affiliate links.
So a new strategy was essential. It looked formidable AND it has been a lot of work- BUT IT IS NOW all in place and getting the message out there is now the task ahead for me.
I have an online income plan in place and I would like you to join me.
HERE IS MY LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE –
NEW ONLINE INCOME STRATEGY
THE STEPS and WHY
1. A Streaming Hypnosis Membership(Netflix type approach) The members have all of the audios and videos available to members. High Value because £1500 (and rising) worth of audios and videos available on all digital devices with wifi or telephone access anywhere in the world.
2. Simple Affiliate Programme and Recurring Monthly Income. The great advantage for affiliates is that a membership offers MONTHLY 50% payments.
[SECRET – just see what is on offer – you pay £7.50 to join – get your affiliate code and just ONE new member gets you £3.75 monthly. Introduce 2 Members and you have FREE Membership. Oh and of course Multiply that up for monthly income – you can do the maths.]
So what you may need training.
3. Training – I Strongly Recommend that You Join NAMS Membership. Above I was writing about NAMS marketing membership. You can be trained to be a great affiliate for my streaming hypnosis – but of course following David and Jen you will ALSO be able to promote many online products.
[SECRET – The same situation applies. As a NAMS Insider you will also get the opportunity to be an affiliate – and get 50% commission for new members – Two new members in and you have FREE training!]
4. Both Affiliate Programmes Are Only Available To Members. If you want to be a successful (and some affiliates are super successful) then you need to know and enjoy the product you are promoting. If you are a member you have every opportunity to use the product and speak about it from first hand knowledge. Your recommendations will be authentic and will ring true.
To put it bluntly ‘No BS’
Your Chance To Get Started Today By Checking Out Both Memberships
1. Hypnosis For Streaming – Three Days
What I have on offer to you right now is three days access to the Hypnosis For Streaming membership site. Free Access with no obligation. Please take a look and I will be available to you to answer any questions.

I am not suggesting for a moment that you get the internet market training just to promote our products. The fact is there are countless affilate projects and the training with David will help you acquire the skills.
Don’t forget – you can join and with your affiliate links find potential members (much as I am doing here) to get further income for yourself. Just two new members and you have your membership covered.
Having been around the scene for many years I can tell you that there is an abundance of poor internet training online. – I can put my hand on my heart and tell you that David and Jen offer the best training resources I have come across online.

Hypnosis Introduction With a Professional Hypnotherapist
My introduction to hypnosis was accidental. It was 2004 when I met Adam at the BNI business network meetings.
When you set yourself up to develop websites for clients one of the fascinating things is that you learn a lot about different businesses. How do they work? What makes them tick?
So that was the case with Adam Eason and his clinical hypnotherapy business.
I developed a website for Adam who was working out of a clinic near Bournemouth. To say I knew nothing then about hypnosis is a fact. Nothing that is about clinical hypnosis. Hmmm – But I had in the past seen stage acts – but that was all.
But here in front of me was a guy who was very passionate about his subject. I was intrigued and wanted to discover more.
AND as far as I was concerned that was good …
Adam was training hypnotherapists and what we decided to do was to video the courses and also develop audio hypnosis products. Front pew for me with the video camera.
How could I fail to learn all about hypnosis – when I was shooting the recordings and editing them.
Of addition I also got to know other people who trained with Adam and are now themselves trained hypnotherapists. Some of those have developed specialist areas – such as hypno-birthing.
When Hypnosis Works – The Seed Takes Roots
What is a common story from people who have moved into the field is that they had an issue that was driving them insane – all attempts to find a solution had failed.
Adam himself is an example of that. All his attempts with medical consultations and ointment treatments for his psoriasis had failed. Someone suggested hypnosis and do I need to say – within a couple of weeks all had cleared up.
All his work is research based and you can pursue that as far as you like with Adam as he has written a book called Science Of Self-Hypnosis. Also his blog and podcasts are full of his professional approach to all of these psychological therapies. You can even go and train in the field with him via his online courses.
AND NOW !!
OK – that all said – I am going to take a totally different approach right here with my retirement Wats-on My Mind project.
I am getting away from the academic theories and discussions about what hypnosis is etc.
I just so want you if you are sceptical about all of this power of the brain – to just give it a go and learn hypnosis skills. You can learn more about the theory at a later stage. I am keen that you go for a ride first.
Here on my blog you will get my:
simple real anecdotes approach
my end user approach
my simple language approach
my if it works that is great approach
so what that is good – approach.
For example: If you ask me what hypnosis is – a typical reply from me would be – focused imagination.
The interesting thing is that people who try and get some release from a problem will want more.
I have a RETIREMENT PROJECT. Shouted out loud with huge letters because it is EXCITING for me and hopefully for you.
Who wants to come along for the ride? Well …. let me not get ahead of myself.
During the last six months I have been setting up a membership area for my new ‘Wats-On My Mind’ project. Work, work and more work.
Now the promotion of the membership area begins and it is for a NEW audience(s) – so all of the social media work begins.
First of all I want to tell you story after story about why I am setting up this is setting about a retirement project being 70, years old.
I am 71 years this month – which must seem a strange time to start something new, – BUT of course just wait for the story …
In fact many of my life decisions have been weird – but fantastic stories…
Any regrets? – NO.
Made awful mistakes at times – but what a way to learn.
The strange thing for me writing a blog is actually wanting to say too much at once. As I am writing this – I am pulling back from stories today as I am trying to set out a structure and putting a plan in place.
So here it is – below is a basic plan of the areas I will cover if you follow my blog this month.
HEALTH – MENTAL AND PHYSICAL.
Health has has been my life. I trained as a nurse when I was 21. You will get background to how I moved from being a electronics engineer – through a temporary job and on to a starting out in a job that was predominantly women in those days. I loved being in a set of nursing recruits – 48 women and me and one other guy – hey the joy. Stories… well carefully selected stories
A confession though – I still admit that I never really learned how women think – even with that constant exposure. Men are from Mars, Women from Venus. Stories …
When I retired from nursing in 1996 – I set up a web design company. One of my clients was a guy called Adam Eason who is a hypnotherapist. Together we developed audio and video products, books and a training school. What a fabulous subject hypnosis is – BUT very often totally misunderstood. The shame is that so few people understand the power of the mind. There is total ignorance about the subject – Stories …
In fact, there are many stories about my introduction and growth on the internet. For eight years I was out in the Muscat, Oman helping to commission a new hospital. It was a University Hospital and while I was there I first came across the www – very basic but infancy of something very important.
I put up my first website about antiques in 1994. and been involved with 2500 websites since. Can you even imagine the changes over those years. Putting up my first website with a very slow modem over phones from the Middle East is the first of my Internet Stories…
PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET
Anyone wishing to run any sort of internet business needs help. It is impossible to know it all. Just keeping up with new developments is a full time job – without earning a penny. During the month I will introduce you to some of my mentors and professional experts. You will never get a recommendation from me about anyone suspect. There may be the odd affiliate link – but again that will be explained and I will have always used the service or know the person that I am recommending.
I will introduce you to some of my online mentors and friends.
I will introduce you to people that are mustard.
Let me give you an example – Paul Taubman
Paul is the man to turn to for WordPress Security. I came across Paul and this challenge through a marketing membership – so more about Paul, David and Jen and others another day – via stories.
MY RETIREMENT PROJECT – FROM PRODUCTS TO STREAMING MEMBERSHIP SERVICE
This is a time in life when I can really do what I want to do and not worry so much about the financial income, although income will be fine. But it’s more about doing something that is enjoyable and worthwhile.
The reason that I called my Blog ‘Wats-on My Mind’ is to introduce and educate as many as possible about controlling what goes on inside our heads. As a nurse I realised that people with positive approach to their illness or surgery responded so much better than those that worried and were anxious. My work with Adam reinforced that point.
I am not a hypnotherapist or Cognitive Behavioural Therapist – BUT I have recorded hours of videos and audios and have indeed used hypnosis sessions for my own personal issues. More stories…
OK – SO WHY THE STORIES THIS MONTH
My Secret Tip For Today.
If you have read yesterday’s blog you will see that I listen to podcasts every morning as I take my exercise walk.
This morning I listened to the 100th podcast recorded by a guy called Brandon Gaille. I have listened to them all and what an education – all for free. I feel I really know him though and that is the key point.
Here is a paragraph from his home page. In fact this below is an introduction to many stories that punctuate his podcast.
FROM BRAIN TUMOR TO 1 MILLION After a brain tumor left him physically and mentally disabled, Brandon overcame the odds to regain his health so that he could help his pregnant wife beat breast cancer. Three years later he launched his blog, BrandonGaille.com. Within four months, his blog had surpassed 100,000 monthly visitors. Less than two years after his first post, there were over 1 million business owners reading Brandon’s blog every month.
The thing is that the stories improve the relationship. I know and respect Brandon – and I have never met him.
MY SECRET EXPOSED
If you have found your way to the bottom of this blog post then you may be somebody I am looking for.
I am looking for affiliates for my evergreen hypnosis membership website. Affiliates care who they work with – rightly.
The most important issue for me is that anyone working with me – can understand me – trust me – know how I click and so on.
The stories I will tell you during October will help you get to know me – warts and all. I will also have to add some video as well. For you to comment and make contact – you will make my day.
Yes indeed, a fairly well-known UK hypnotherapist who markets her one-hour stop smoking programme actually also refers to the 1964 study by Von Dedenroth (conducted in 1964, published in American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis in 1968) who made these claims of a 94% success rate. She claims to have a ‘comparably high success rate’ and there are many others that use this study in their marketing literature if you google it.
Then Adam points out there have been several other bits of research since that have not been so convincing.
Then he points out:
However, however, however, all is not lost, oh no…
Racing to our rescue in the early 1990s, as featured in the New Scientist and referred to by many of us in the field, was published a study by Viswesvaran and Schmidt (1992) who had conducted a metaanalysis on 633 studies of smoking cessation which included a whopping 48 studies in the hypnosis category which they investigated.
This also had a total number of 6,020 participants. Which is impressive. Hypnosis did prove to be better and more effective than just about every other treatment it was compared to including nicotine replacement therapy and aversion techniques, yet still only really offering up a success rate far inferior to that of the Von Dedenroth 1968 study.
It is complex and there are other factors.
Our Stop Smoking Product Warning
In our Hypnosis For Download store we have a self-hypnosis product called ‘Stop Smoking Now’
But right at the top of the sales page we have the following copy:
Let me be honest with you.
Please please – do not buy this product if you REALLY DON’T want to give up smoking.
The straight forward truth is because it won’t work. So you might as well save the purchase price of this product and buy another pack of cigarettes instead.
Please don’t buy this as a gift for someone else if they don’t REALLY WANT to give up smoking.
The absolutely essential first step is to WANT TO GIVE UP SMOKING
Hypnosis will work if you want your behaviour, addiction or whatever to change.
Without the desire – well forget it.
I like to think of hypnosis as the ‘willpower assistant’.
Many people who have used hypnosis will say the same thing. “I don’t know how it worked – but it did.”
Now The Stop Smoking Story
I remember Adam telling this story to a class of his hypnotherapy students. Adam is a great story teller and this is not exactly word for word but the giso is there.
A man (who I will call John) came to see Adam at his practice to stop smoking. All the usual chats were done. John made it clear that somebody had suggested hypnosis – but he himself, didn’t believe it could work because he was sure nobody could hypnotise him.
Adam tried to give him examples of how we are all in a trance like state at times, reading a book or watching a film. Just think how absorbed you are and ignoring people around you. What about calling a child downstairs for lunch – when does play and imagination not interfere.
John and Adam agreed to give it all a go.
The hypnosis induction was done and Adam could see that John’s eyes were flickering and that there were breathing changes. In fact Adam knew that John was in hypnosis. The stop smoking script was provided and after 20 minutes it was time for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and now you are back in your surroundings.
Well asked Adam “How was that”.
“No” says John, I can’t see that working. I could hear you but I wasn’t hypnotised.
Adam then suggested that John wait till the next session in a weeks time to discuss it again.
During the week John rang Adam to tell him that even though he had paid for the next session that was no problem. He wasn’t going to attend because he didn’t thing he could be hypnotised.
AND then came the funny bit.
John carried on by saying to Adam that he really didn’t need it now ANYWAY as he had manage to stop smoking all by himself. He pointed out that he didn’t know how that had happened but he clearly didn’t need hypnosis.
I love the title of this blog post written by Sarah Ban
I Tried Hypnosis for Insomnia. Then My Skin Cleared Up.
I don’t understand it, either, but I’m not complaining.
How often have I seen that.
So many people who have used hypnosis will say the same thing. “I don’t know how it worked – but it did.”
Adam Eason my hypnotherapist friend was amazed when he was treated for his psoriasis by a clinical hypnotherapist.
He was completely surprised by the effect on his skin as he had tried everything else prescribed.
That is in fact what led Adam to learn about hypnosis and start his hypnotherapy career.
Back to Sarah’s article…
The blog post by Sarah is well worth reading and she points out various studies and research in the field.
She finishes her blog post:
Whether or not I can explain how my skin got better, I’m pretty positive that my hypnosis sessions had something to do with it.
Whichever confounding variable was responsible for the clearer skin I saw after my hypnotherapy sessions (stress reduction, better sleep, placebo effect, or all of the above), I’m just thrilled to have seen results at all.
I was finally able to get my racing mind under control with the help of hypnosis. That meant I went from getting maybe two measly hours of sleep a night to a solid eight hours, which is a massive improvement for me. When I’m well-rested during the day, I’m more equipped to handle hectic situations, which means my stress levels are more under control, and I’m pretty sure that’s resulting in a newly clear complexion. My skin still breaks out when I’m frazzled, but it seems a lot happier overall. And so am I.
It is very easy to get wrong impressions about hypnosis. The showmen want to make it all look mystical and unreal.
I have videoed many courses where hypnotherapists were being trained. Many wonderful people with a real desire to help people with annoying behaviours, habits, addictions, pain, self-esteem and so on.
The problem for them especially in their early days is convincing many people out there who have very little knowledge about the therapy.
Ten years ago I was among those who knew very little about hypnosis.
Here are a few facts about hypnosis.
This is a difficult one for clinical hypnotherapists to deal with. The on stage guys are clever and use hypnosis and distraction techniques well.
The people selected to go on stage and take part are actually expecting an outcome. They are more prepared than they believe to respond and play the part.
The thing to realise is that they are willingly being led and are NOT really under the control of the hypnotist.
I personally love Derren Brown who actually calls himself a mentalist and illusionist. That is much better title although other people talk about him being a hypnotist. He often will show at the end of his performance how he has been misleading the audience. He will show video and you can see the clever language that is feeding the imaginations of those being manipulated.
Myths and Mystery and Bad Journalism
Oh dear I don’t know what to say about this one.
There are TV shows and humour “look into my eyes, look into my eyes” and all of that nonsense.
There are journalists who write for a living who are writing err … garbage!!
There are exceptions like Sarah Bar above who is giving a sensible researched article.
Firstly, the Telegraph, which you’d expect to have a more sober perspective on the story carries the headline: ‘Hypnotist thief puts shopkeeper in trance before robbing him’ The hypnosis article can be found here if you’d like to read it.
Before I do anything else, let me address the fact that the Telegraph uses the word ‘Trance’ in the title of their article and then assumes that trance and hypnosis are the same thing. They are not.
Hypnotism Is Not A Hypnotist/Hypnotherapist Taking Control
The problem, of course, lies in the way hypnosis is presented again and again by the media, having to explain to clients over and over that hypnosis is something THEY do sometimes feel like a losing battle.
Self-Hypnosis is a skill that can be learned by anyone. Yes it is a learned SKILL
To Take Control Issue Further – For My Christian Friends.
I wrote about this a long time ago in 2008 but I won’t send you to that post.
What I will do in fact is update that blog though as there are some new links to add.
Let Me Rant a Bit – Which Is Not My Usual Style …
(you will see that this post is rather sombre for me – but I so want you all to know more about the subject before criticising)
The usual thing is that people think they know about something without having ever studied the subject at all – they simply have an opinion based simply on intuition, gossip or whatever.
Several of my church friends have questioned my interest in what they describe as taking control of someones mind and over somebody’s thinking?
What? … WHAT?
I have videoed and sat through hundreds of hours of clinical hypnotherapy and cognitive bahavioural therapy training – AND it is NOT taking control of the clients mind.
If you think there is exasperation showing – you are right!
Let me bow out.
Really I am wise to leave this to somebody qualified to talk about it.
I am no fool.
Here is a YouTube video – well audio reallywith a ridiculously strange splash screen – about Hypnosis and Christianity. This is a video interview with Rev Dr Scot Giles. This is about his work using hypnosis with cancer patients.
The talk therapies offer help harmlessly. There is a lot of research about the effectiveness of many interventions – for example pain relief. The weakness is that there much more research needed.
So What About Psychiatry?
The very same people that object to hypnosis therapy WILL accept and endorse psychiatrists offering treatments and medication.
From my young nursing days back in the 60’s I had the horror of working with a team giving Electro-Convulsive Therapy (ECT). Notice my strong word horror. I could not believe what I was witnessing. I will say no more about that as it was a long time ago and I may exaggerate.
I was shocked (there’s a pun) when I found out recently that this therapy was in growing use again.
“The figures, obtained through freedom of information requests, show that despite being a crude, controversial treatment, which fell sharply out of favour around the turn of the millennium, ECT is enjoying a revival.
The procedure involves anaesthetising the patient and passing electricity through the brain to induce seizure. Despite ghoulish depictions in popular culture and a marked lack of science explaining how and why it works, treatments can prove effective. Patient stories range fromlife-changing benefits to tales of lives being ruined.”
Hypnotherapists are not wanting to get inside your head and control you. There intention is for their clients to learn the skills of focused imagination and suggesting to themselves the changes they want to make. That is my simple interpretation. Don’t let me tell you though. Better to learn directly from a hypnotherapy practitioner. I can put you in touch with the best.
What If Hypnotherapists Could Get To Control You?
I remember when I first met Adam, the guy who introduced me to hypnotherapy.
He was introducing his business in a breakfast BNI meeting. At each BNI meeting you were allowed 60 seconds to tell a story about your business. A bit like twitter really.
Adam was charismatic and I looked forward to his spot.
One of his minute stories was about hypnotherapists taking control of your mind.
Adam asked us “Why would I be standing up there at 7am to get some new business if I really could use magical hypnosis skills to control somebody? No! Surely I would simply make an appointment with my bank manager and get him to write me out a million pound cheque.
Of Course There Are So Many More Question – Another Day
There are so many other questions.
What does being hypnotised feel like?
Do I go to sleep?
Is it like being in the zone – like sportmen?
I really do want you to find out. So more to follow.
There has been a lot of reporting today here in the UK all about a new sugar tax. It is on drinks that have a high level of sugar in them. For example a litre of Coca Cola will cost 24p (approx 30 cents).
Caroline Cerny from the Obesity Health Alliance of charities says that says “This alone won’t be enough to tackle rising obesity levels and that we need the government to take further action.
The reason for her comments is because of the alarming figures from our NHS. (This is all there data so of course this is UK related but please add comments below about your countries.)
Twice as many patients are admitted to hospital with problems related to obesity as four years ago.
Stop – and look at that again. What a rapid rate of change.
In 2016-17 about 617.000 hospital admissions were caused at least in part by obesity, up 18% in a year and NINE times higher than a decade ago.
STOP again. I am just ramming those figures in. They are shocking.
A total of 10.705 admissions were primarily the result of obesity, about two thirds of them for weight loss surgery. This is up from 3,800 a decade ago. The rest of the admissions were for conditions that obesity makes worse such as joint problems and heart attacks.
Obesity has been an issue for me – well since I was forty
I was looking this morning for a picture of me just before I was forty playing table tennis. I was on holiday and wearing only my shorts. I couldn’t find the picture unfortunately – (you are probably disappointed).
Up until that age I had no weight issue at all.
Suddenly An Issue
Then bang!! I put on weight.
I went through that period (well quite a few years) where I would use some latest faddy diet, lose weight and go through the yo-yo process over and over again.
I am currently about 12 stone but I got up to regularly 15 stone.
Here’s an old belt that shows the battle.
Here’s a picture that has been added to a wall in our home. I did not choose this picture and the detailed image below will show you why.
Here is the reason I would like this picture removed.
I was NOT happy with constant and continual up down of battling with this problem.
Diets were not the answer.
This photo is about eight years old.
I Was Fedup With My Weight – What Would Be Permanent?
At that time I was learning about hypnosis by working together with Adam Eason producing audios and videos about hypnotherapeutic techniques. Adam had in fact done a lot of face to face work as well as his producing his self-hypnosis products.
Not hard for me then to get to work on my weight problem.
The programme I used at the time was called ‘Think Yourself Thin’ and I set about using this set of audio products.
There were hypnosis sessions within the package but alongside that there were narrative files, workbooks etc.
I analysed everything and the situation was this.
There is one irrefutable fact – The amount of food / drinks / cals put into your body is measurable and if you put in more than your body needs to function for the physical you will put on weight.
Straight forward maths. NO use arguing – that is a fact.
I wrote a blog about boxer Anthony Joshua and I read last week about his diet. He consumes about 10,000 cals a day simply because he needs that much for the physical activity of boxing training.
Relate this to a car. The fuel tank is filled with petrol. Drive the car fast, crashing through the gears fast, and braking last minute and guess what the fuel runs out fast. Drive steadily and braking softly and the fuel will go further.
When I began to work through my eating issues and really wanted to find a solution – everything became obvious.
My Bad Behaviours Were:
Eating quickly – often when working and not stopping for the meal
Always eating everything and never leaving anything on my plate
If there was a seconds available – having them
Eating too many snacks between meals that were high in calories.
Drinking wine regularly during the week.
Bad behaviours are learned behaviours.
My worked out solution – ongoing.
So my formula was ok on one side – I was exercising a reasonable amount – but not enough to use all of the calories coming in.
I had to learn new behaviours and get them set – into a new mindset.
The solution was not with the food I was eating. That was actually ok apart from the amount of alcohol.
Here are the solutions that were right for me.
Eat slowly – you actually enjoy the tasting of the food longer AND you recognise faster that you are full
Learning to listen to my body – I realised when analysing things that I hated the feeling of being overfull. Avoid that.
Reduced size portions – that fits with the eating slowly. It takes longer to eat and you don’t feel as if it is a smaller amount
Leave food on the plate – and definitely not second portions.
In may case drinking only Friday evening till Sunday evening.
Avoid snacking between meals. Not hard when your mindset is reset.
Hypnosis sessions were all around getting this new mindset to make all of those behaviour changes. Hypnosis is focused imagination. You see yourself with a new approach. Quite simply it works.
Within a few days I was not even thinking about going to the fridge for a snack and so on.
I have really not changed anything in my diet. I am simply eating less and don’t even realise it.
Some eight years now in a controlled way.
What about you? You are the person that can change You – Your call.
