psychology of weight loss program has a goal of both
decreased and maintained weight. Results should lead
to a comfortable weight that also promotes good health.
A series of short-term goals leading to the long-term
goal are emphasized. A short-term goal might be fitting
into a dress that was slightly too tight or decreasing
one notch on your belt.
The first step is to accept that you are
overweight without self-criticism and self-degradation. The
next step is to increase motivation for behavior change that
will lead to a slow and steady reduction in weight. The final
step is replacing harmful eating behaviors with healthy ones.
The client must receive nutritional counseling from a nutritionist
or a program, such as Weight Watchers, and must have approval for an exercise program by a physician. The five-year success rate of most programs is rather poor when
the dropout rate is taken into consideration. The psychology of weight loss program provides
tools to take off the pounds and keep them off.
Dr, Nadler will guide the client through the psychology of weight
loss. In the treatment, there is an emphasis on the therapeutic use of imagery and hypnotherapy
to bring about behavior change.
After losing 15 pounds, a client remarked "I feel so much
better and my doctor has reduced my medication."
Call or e-mail Dr. Nadler to set up a no cost telephone consultation
to discuss how you can lose weight and how the psychology of weight loss can work for you..
