Reaching out to adults, adolescents, and families.


Hi my name is Bruce Lockhart

I'd like to talk to you about the possibility that this may be the time, possibly your time to lose some weight. That there may be a reason if that was or is something you may have been thinking about, and the reason you're looking at this information right now.

I would like to share with you what could be some very useful information.

Emotional Eating Triggers

Subjective emotional attachments; Let me give you some examples of these types of emotional attachments going back and starting right at the beginning when you were child.

As a child did your caregivers reward you with special foods like ice cream or pizza for good behaviour?

Did your caregivers give you treats when you were feeling sad or not well?

These emotionally based childhood eating habits can carry over into adulthood. Wow think about that, it could've started right there, but of course as we get older things become more sophisticated.
From there one may consider the emotional attachments to stress eating, which doesn't relieve stress. Emotional eating doesn't relieve emotions.

If we look at comfort foods, so many people love their comfort foods laden with carbohydrates, sugars, and fats.
All of these types of eating habits can lead to binge eating as well.

Binge eating can be supported by very powerful emotional attachments comparable to that of addictionOh boy there's the word, addiction, the truth is it's hard to break what seems like normal eating habits. For the average person, it's a struggle. You have to know and work with your emotional triggers.

Last year I met a man who went to a weight loss program regularly every week, most weeks he showed no loss but continued to go faithfully and on the way home every week he stopped at a fast food restaurant. 
He finally learned how to identify and deal with his emotional triggers and has successfully lost over 44 pounds.

Hypnosis can be one of the most powerful interventions when dealing with subjective emotional attachments.
