Excerpted from an article in Prevention Magazine about weighing yourself every day. It is not effective for most people who have issues with emotional eating. See why below: "Seeing how much I weighed impacted my mood, but not my habits.
When the scale was a pound (or even a half-pound) lower, I was elated; when it was higher, I was angry and disappointed. But in neither instance did it inspire me to make positive changes. When I saw a lower number, I'd think "Great! I can eat another cookie and not really worry about it." When the number was higher, I'd tell myself, "You might as well eat what you like if you're not going to be thinner." Maybe that's some messed up logic, but it's the truth.
I didn't lose any weight."

Tap Your Forehead: Curb a Craving.
Weird? Yes. But researchers tested a few 30-second techniques to stop mindless eating. This one worked best at distracting obese study participants from their favorite foods, thus reducing cravings. Next time a chocolate doughnut is calling your name, place your finger on your forehead and tap away your desire. - Frpm Reader's Digest

Researchers at Erasmus University in the Netherlands asked people to write about a time when they either gave or withheld forgiveness. The human guinea pigs were then asked to jump as high as they could, five times, without bending their knees. The forgivers jumped highest, about 11.8 inches on average, while the grudge holders jumped 8.5 inches--a huge difference and a startling illustration of how forgiveness can actually unburden you. - From Reader's Digest

Glad to see the many uses of hypnosis being validated by the media.

In a study at Arizona State, dieters were given positive or negative messages about sweets. Then they were given cookies. The ones who got negative messages ate 39% more cookies than the positive message group. When you're trying to lose weight think about the pros of eating healthy rather than the cons of eating junk.
I knew that!

Doctors are among the biggest group "fat shaming" their patients. I hear this from clients all the time. It makes me really angry. I wish doctors had more training in psychology and compassion than they do.
