The majority of people coming to hypnotherapy for weight loss have been people over 50 or 60. The reason for this is because body chemistry changes with age. Because of this, we must change our eating habits to deal with this significant change. I now only eat two meals a day and two very small snacks (an apple, a handful of unsalted nuts and raisins, is my go-to snack. My Life with Weight Loss and Hypnosis When I turned 30 (33 years ago), I remember getting a fat content test at the gym. From the time I was young until that day, my problem had been keeping weight on my body. I was skinny, a size 28 waste. So, when I discovered that I had 22% body fat by the practitioner grabbing my back fat and measuring it, I was mortified. I had never even looked at my back. This began my process of learning to eat for health. As most of you know, I have been some kind of vegetarian or vegan since 19 years old. I have always known how to eat for health, but some of my choices and the amount I ate had to change. At 30, I simply had to eliminate some simple carbs, unhealthy snacks, and listen to my body for when to stop eating. When you’re younger, losing weight is easier because most of us are more active. With the dawn of overuse of cellphones and social media, more children are morbidly obese. Limiting computer time and gaming is imperative to help these kids. I am from a family who was fairly poor. Getting seconds at the dinner table was rare. In fact, those siblings who got seconds were one of the six children who were the most aggressive or the ones who ate the fastest. This caused me to eat quickly. When you eat too fast, your appestat doesn’t have the chance to tell your brain that you are full. This was my biggest problem as a young man. A spiritual friend told me that if I chewed my food slowly, thanking God for all the people who touched my food before it appeared on my plate, I would probably be eating slowly enough for my appestat to begin working again. This helped a lot—when food didn’t taste delicious. However, I’m a chef, so food generally tasted really good and savory. This makes stopping even harder. However, putting a proper portion on my plate and not taking seconds was my first thrust forward in exercising my will over my perceived hunger. Next, exercise is a large portion of maintaining a healthy weight. I find that people who are in pain have the most trouble with this part of the process. We all must find a way to activate our healthy hearts with some kind of movement for at least 20 minutes a day. I used to do yoga every day for an hour. As a 62 year old with 6 bulging disks, exercise had to change, too. If you are in pain you can bounce on a fitness ball, walk more often, or swim. Even walking around a swimming pool can help you lose weight. Mostly importantly, I always do some form of stomach exercises. We can all find some kind of abdominal work that doesn’t hurt. I have found as a hypnotist, eating better doesn’t do much when you are sedentary. You must get off of your chair for at least 20 minutes twice a day. If you’re not losing weight, but doing hypnosis, and haven’t begun exercising, you probably will plateau with your weight regimen quickly. Most people do. Find some form of exercise. This is a requirement for weight loss. Lastly, emotions matter in dealing with fluctuating weight. If you haven’t dealt with your anger, pain, bad relationships, and work anxiety, you will hold onto your fat content, because of the chemicals these emotions emit in the body. Cortisol and epinephrine will keep weight on the body every time. Can Hypnosis Help You Lose Weight #hypnosisonlasolas #bosebastian
When it Really Matters

The High Cost of Life

The high cost of life is contingent upon our laziness or our willingness to take some extra steps that most people in generations before us did without thinking. We have all become accustomed to premade, easy, and life taking little thought, coffee in a cardboard cup. 

The High Cost of Life

Most of us go to the grocery store, the hardware store, the supermarket and get amazed at the amount of money we have to spend now compared to one year ago. My grocery bills are about 25-30% higher than they used to be. As a result, I have been cutting back on prepared foods and buying more perishables, whole grains, and dried beans. 


The. High Cost of life

My Experience with Higher Prices


I am amazed at how much less I spend. At the end of the week my refrigerator is generally empty. The food tastes betters, because it’s entirely fresh. And my digestion is better for it.

This “price of life” wake-up call happened for my family because we are wanting to buy a home this year. As a result, we have been cutting back to save every penny. The fact that loans are more expensive makes us feel as if the more money provide upfront for our new home, the cheaper it will be in the long run. Because it’s for our future, a little cutting back doesn’t feel bad at all.


We used to spend money on lunches everyday and going out to eat 3-4 times a week. When we looked at our monthly expenditures, we were spending 800-900 dollars more with those extras. However, I realized it was more laziness and self-entitlement than frustration about cost.

This made me try something. What if on my day off I made four different dishes for the entire week. I put them in the refrigerator in containers. Each day we take these dishes to work. We have also decided that we feel better if we eat a bigger meal at lunch and then something lighter for dinner, as in Europe. 


In the evenings, I usually eat some nuts and fruits, a light snack that doesn’t affect my sleep. 


Instead of bitching about the high cost of life and everything; instead, I have been working a bit harder, but the result is fresher, better, tastier food. Interestingly enough, I actually have begun to enjoy cooking again. 



The purpose of this blog is to realize that the stories in the brain are impulses from Spirit to help us heal, if we are willing to take the time to understand our own pain.
