Lily Allen's Hypnotic Weight Loss

Lily Allen's Hypnotic Weight Loss

People will go to any lengths to lose a little weight and one of the more unusual methods gaining popularity recently is by means of hypnosis. Lily Allen used hypnosis for weight loss, and it's apparently helped her drop about four dress sizes, and it got her to want to go to the gym. Lily said:

"After the hypnotism, I want to go to the gym every day, otherwise I feel really bad. I just want to get more toned and healthy. I'm really good about everything at the moment — I've never been happier."

Allen does look great these days, but I am still wondering why she didn't ask the hypnotist to get her to stop smoking too?

Sound interesting? Then check out The Zen of Thin for more info on hypnotism and weight loss. If you've had your own experience with weight loss and hypnotism I'd love to hear, so share them in the comments section below.

Lily is still looking slim and trim last time I saw her so I guess hypnosis really is a long term solution to weight loss.

I think it's a good thing she went and got hypnosis done to herself. It's not like she needed to get fit (she's already very fit), but it never hurts to work out. And I wouldn't worry about it like some people are saying. If you hypnotize someone nothing can happen to them that's bad.

this is interesting... i work out with a trainer but i'm struggling with doing cardio on my own.. lol... maybe hypnosis would help! anyway, i saw an acupuncturist to curb my sugar cravings and it was so effective... i would eat chocolates everyday.. 2-4 minis.. and after one session with the acupuncturist, all of a sudden i stopped craving it.. i'd see chocolates at work but didn't want it.. saw people eating it and still didn't feel like i was missing anything. didn't eat any chocolates for 2 months.. now i do eat it sometimes but very rarely..

How do you find a good hypnotist, and someone you can trust?

I really admired her before. It meant that there were women who looked pretty and were "above" the average celebrity sizes of 0-2. I think she has maybe employed more than hypnotism to lose weight in such a short space of time..??

Oh...and if you dont know if you are suseptible to being hypnotized...there is a test you can do if you use the "zen of thin" link. I was rated a 5...the most suseptible. YAY!

My aunt tried Hypnotherapy to stop eating chocolate. (Why just chocolate, I'm not sure - I think it was becoming an addiction!) She said that after a few sessions she started not liking chocolate anymore. Any time she would eat a piece, she said it was like the chocolate was void of taste. She stopped eating it all together after awhile. She lost about 15 pounds just by doing that! I've considered hypnotherapy to lose weight before. It seems interesting.

so as some of you know, and some of you dont..i was in an accident 3 years ago and now have this wierdo nerve condition which i do some very interesting therapy for. one of those is hypnosis and meditation. its actually self hypnosis -- which im learning with the hypnotist, but its all the same. its amazing. its been helping me so much with my recovery. my uncle used hypnosis to stop smoking - he needed one session (thats not normal). and a friend of mine used hypnosis for weight loss. the hypnosis just made her think of unhealthy food as gross, and healthy food as good.

She looks good. I guess the hypnosis works but I doubt it'd work for me. I can't get under hypnosis for some reason. Guess that means more effort on my part to lose weight :D haha

I think she simply stopped drinking and drugging because of her recent and frequent run-ins with the law and poof the bloat and munchies went away and her energy came back. She can call it whatever she likes but she went to "Rehab".

My mom also lost a lot of weight through hypnosis, and she was skeptical at first. I think it's really great for changing your eating habits; the hypnotist would tell her things like "stop eating when you are full" and "leave some food on your plate." She always did -- it was sort of freaky -- but it definitely helped break her cycle of overeating.

She's 21 and she was a 12 on the bottom, 10 on top. She's now an 8, and these are British dress sizes, which are smaller than American. She was kind of my heroine for a while, and I'm happy that she is getting healthy, but disappointed that she succumbed to the weight loss machine when she looked fine in the first place. Why did I immediately click on that hypnotherapy link, though? God, the things we do to be thin.
