It’s less of a diet and more a way of life. The claim is that ‘with hypnodiet, when you’re not hungry you simply will not want to eat’. Well, it definitely worked for Lily Allen, who went from a size 12 to 8 after visiting Susan.
The aim with this diet is to reach your subconscious mind, the one that tends to undermine all your good intentions, through hypnotism. The CD, included in the book, has daily meditations for you to follow, through which you will start to ‘reprogramme’ your eating habits. Along with the daily meditations, Susan encourages you to keep a food diary so you can understand which feelings make you reach for the biscuits when you’re not hungry.
The key to this diet, is to follow the programme and really address once and for all why you have bad habits and banish them for good.
Rather than forcing yourself to eat less and restricting yourself, this book helps you explore why you have the cravings in the first place.
Susan told ELLEuk.com the ‘Hypno Diet is a stand alone method’, but Susan is available to see clients, you can visit her at her Harley Street clinic for a kick start. Price per session £275.
You need to put 20 minutes a day aside to listen to the CD. If you used 20 minutes everyday for exercise you would probably get the same results... However, by addressing your demons, you should want to start exercising more and break your cycle of bad eating habits too.
