Are you “eating under the influence of negative emotions?”
Are cravings and overeating a problem for you?
Our relationship with food and our ability to lose weight is complex, to say the least.
Our thoughts and emotions play a huge role and we’re finally starting to recognise that permanent weight loss is SO much more than calories in/calories out.
I know you’ve been wondering about EFT and my 7 Week Weigh Less with Words Programme and wondering how effective it actually is so read on for enlightenment ..
The method used in my 7 week Weigh Less with Words programme is EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as Tapping.
Several studies show that EFT is effective for weight loss. In an outcome study, participant cravings for treats like chocolate, cake, sweets and alcohol were reduced by 83% .
A second outcome study of a 6 week online weight loss program showed participants losing 12lb between the start and end of the program, and a further 3lb in the following 6 months .
A randomised controlled trial showed that in the year after an EFT weight loss program, participants lost an average of 11lb . These studies show that not only is EFT effective for weight loss, but unlike yo yo diets, the effect is permanent, and that the skills participants learn result in ongoing weight loss among other benefits long after the programme has ended.
