It works because it is all in the mind.
When I first came across Tapping, I went crazy tapping on all kinds of emotional issues. Without realizing, within 3 months, I lost 7 kilos (that’s over 15 pounds) of my weight! I had been stuck with my old weight for 7-8 years. So this change was sudden, but welcome.
Although I did not start out with weight loss in mind, somewhere, releasing pent up negative emotions released the extra, unnecessary weight. I kind of like my new avatar.
I have retained my new weight since then (over 5 years now), while still eating all the same things, and having a baby in between. I lost all the pregnancy weight easily. That was a surprise since I had been stuck with my old weight stubbornly for years before I came across Tapping.
Not only me, many other people have successfully used Tapping to lose weight and keep it off. If you want to lose just those pesky few extra pounds or much more than that, Tapping can help you. You may be thinking – I’ve tried everything, my case is different, this won’t work for me, well, you’ll never know unless you try. With EFT, there’s nothing to lose but weight.
In this 5 part weight loss course, we will address some of the underlying emotional causes that stand in the way of your ideal weight. At one lesson per week, you will take about 5 weeks to work through the course.
I suggest that you take your time and work at your own pace instead of running through all the material in one afternoon. If you have questions or need more information, feel free to contact me.
EFT for Weight Loss: Lesson Plan
- No matter how committed we are to eating healthy, everyone of us has slip-ups where we give in to unhealthy food cravings. And while that may be okay once in a while, if you routinely eat based solely on your cravings, there may be more than just your taste buds calling the shots. This lesson includes a tap-along video to curb cravings for unhealthy foods.
Lesson 1: EFT tapping for weight loss: curb cravings
- The goal of this lesson is to bring up your specific limiting beliefs around the extra weight. And to develop a hopeful attitude towards achieving your ideal weight.
Lesson 2: EFT Tapping for weight loss: the mirror exercise and self image
- This week is about training ourselves to detach from the scarcity mentality that food provokes. We will also learn to identify false hunger triggers that lead to overeating. Our goal with this exercise is to learn to think like a thin person.
Lesson 3: EFT tapping for weight loss: false hunger triggers and scarcity
- Whenever you feel like you can’t handle something or feel pressurized to do something or feel trapped in your job or routine, it increases the production of a hormone that can not only lead to decreased muscle and increased fat, but can also increase food intake, especially of carbohydrates.
This week’s plan is to release the need to find an escape from everyday stresses in food. The lesson includes a questionnaire to zero in on your main stress trigger that keeps you from losing weight.
Lesson 4: EFT Tapping for weight loss: the C word and attachment
- In this 5th and final lesson, we will focus on how our need for nurturing affects our weight. The lesson includes a tapping script that goes to the root of where your unfulfilled need for nurturing lies. This need for nurturing and safety creates attachment to self-destructive behaviour – emotional eating, skipping workouts and storing up all kinds of harmful emotions inside the body.
