What is Hypno-fasting?

Hypno-Fasting consists of using an 'intermittent fasting' plan alongside various hypnosis/hypnotherapy techniques in order to help you lose weight easily and effectively.


Why use Hypno-fasting instead of "normal fasting"?

"Normal fasting" (intermittent fasting) is great, it works really well in and of itself. However, the whole process can be made much more effective (and easier) by harnessing the power of your mind to work more efficiently alongside your body and your chosen fasting plan. By engaging and utilising this amazing resource (your mind), it means you'll lose weight quicker, and sticking to the plan will be much easier with your new mind-set.


Who can use Hypno-fasting?

Pretty much everyone can use Hypno-Fasting, regardless of sex, age, race, activity level, dietary requirements, etc.


Who shouldn't use Fasting?

You shouldn't use intermittent fasting if:

  • You have any food/diet-related health conditions or concerns (especially hypoglycemia, thyroid problems, diabetes, etc.)
  • You are a child (under 18)
  • You’re pregnant/breastfeeding
  • You exercise excessively (i.e. more than 2-3 hours per day)
  • You don’t get enough sleep
  • You’re under massive psychological stress
  • You’re using appetite suppressants & fat-loss supplements
  • You’re pretending to be healthy to cover up an eating disorder or to drastically control your daily food/calorie intake

If you're unsure, contact your doctor before putting these methods to use.


What is hypnosis - is it even real?

Yes, hypnosis is 100% real, and scientifically proven to exist, but, in reality, hypnosis may be different to what you might expect...

Hypnosis isn't magic or mind-control. You cannot be made to do things you don't want to do, nor will you "black out" or "get stuck in hypnosis" (that's impossible). In fact, hypnosis is a completely normal, natural state of mind, one that we all enter numerous times each day (yes, including you). Hypnosis allows you to become very focused, to the point where all other distractions can begin to become less important.

Contrary to what you may have seen in the movies, people in hypnosis aren't unconscious... they're actually super-focused. It's very similar to when you get into a good book/movie, and everything else takes a back seat. Hypnosis feels a bit like the moment before you fall asleep, where you're aware, but not totally "with it". People often say that hypnosis is one of the most relaxing experiences they've ever had!


Who can be hypnotised?

Pretty much everyone on the planet can be hypnotised...but some people respond better to it than others. Around 20-30% of all the people in the world are highly responsive to hypnosis...these people are the ones who you'll see on stage at a hypnosis show.

That said, almost all people respond to hypnosis well enough to benefit from a hypnosis MP3 (or a hypnotherapy session).


Will this book hypnotise me?

No, the book itself is just a book, it will not hypnotise you. The book contains explanations of many awesome "mind tricks" and hypnotherapy techniques that you can use yourself (outside of hypnosis) to improve your success.

Alongside the book, you also get a Hypnosis MP3 Download - the MP3 definitely is designed to hypnotise you, and will help you to use the techniques within the book as effectively as possible (if you choose to listen to it).


How soon will I see results?

Hypno-Fasting can produce dramatic results, and often very quick progress. Take a look at the transformation pictures page for some examples of "short-term" transformations. Generally, you can expect to see results pretty quickly, assuming you stick to the plan as directed!


Fasting seems hard...will I be able to do it?

Fasting, like many things, is simply a habit. It's something that you need to stick with for a while, and soon enough it'll naturally become easier, until it's almost second nature. Kind of like how tying your shoes used to be hard, when you first learned how to, but you soon got the hang of it. 

Hypno-Fasting also contains a number of tried-and-tested methods that will make your new fasting habit form even quicker than it normally would, which makes things much easier!


Can I make Hypno-Fasting a full-time way of life?

Yes, because the longer you stick to your fasting routine, the more your appetite, your tastes, your natural hunger and motivation levels will all self-regulate and become easier to manage. Intermittent fasting is a long-term weight-management solution, and it can be done indefinitely, whilst actually promoting better health (unlike some other diets, that can cause negative side-effects with long term use). So by all means, use Hypno-Fasting forever if you want to!


Will I feel hungry all the time whilst I'm fasting?

It's surprising how quickly your mind and body get used to operating with longer periods of less food/no food. Sometimes you may feel hungry, but by following the instructions in the book, you'll learn how to easily manage any feelings of hunger. As fasting becomes your natural habit, you will notice that you get hungry a lot less than you may have at the start of the program.


Is intermittent fasting bad for my metabolism?

No, and it's a common myth that fasting "slows down your metabolism". Your metabolic rate is not influenced by how frequently you eat (whether more or less frequently) - the thing that affects your metabolism is how much "energy" (food) you are taking into your body...and with intermittent fasting, you can still eat a normal amount of food whilst continuing to burn fat!


Will intermittent fasting put my body into "starvation mode"?

No, that's a myth too! Our bodies only go into starvation mode when we are literally starving. To get to this point, you would need to go without food for many days or even weeks, and to a point where your fat-stores have dropped significantly. By fasting for a day (or even a couple of days), you are nowhere near the point of starvation.


Are there any age limits?

Intermittent fasting is not recommended for children (under 18 years old), as the body is still growing and changing, and it's not something that you want to mess around with. There is no real upper age limit, so it should be fine, assuming you're of good health and not frail. Again, if you're over 65, it might be worth double checking with your doctor before you begin your Hypno-Fasting plan.
 


Are there any side effects with intermittent fasting?

Aside from a little hunger (when you get started), there are no side effects that happen across-the-board for everyone (as we all react differently to things). There have been some cases of low-energy, dehydration, poor sleep, etc., however, these are all on an individual basis, and are not "the norm". As with most things, we can actually talk ourselves into experiencing negative side effects (think "the placebo effect"), so it's a good idea to adopt a positive mindset when you begin fasting, to avoid giving yourself a side effect! lol

This topic is covered in detail within the book, but it's worth noting that the list of "positive side effects" certainly outweighs the potential less-positive ones (that you're not as likely to experience anyway).


Will I feel shaky/faint when I'm fasting?

Generally, people don't feel faint or shaky (unless they expect to...see the point above). Your body can technically go for days without food, so it's unlikely that not eating for a few hours (or eating a few less calories) would cause shaking/faintness. If, however, you do find yourself feeling faint, initially approach it as you would with a feeling of hunger (drink some water and give it a few minutes), generally it will pass. If it persists, then it's up to you if you decide to break fast early. or push on.

If, in the unlikely event, that you always feel faint during fasting, it may be worth exploring in a checkup with your doctor/GP.


Can I exercise and use intermittent Fasting?

Yes, you sure can. Exercise is not a mandatory part of the Hypno-Fasting process, however it is covered thoroughly within the book, because exercising alongside your fasting plan can dramatically increase your results (if you want to do it). #NoPressure


Is this like 16:8, 5:2 or alternate day fasting?

The Hypno-Fasting book actually contains all three approaches, so you can choose whichever fasting plan best fits you, rather than trying to fit yourself to one pre-selected plan. We're all individuals, so being able to choose which approach you take is one of the very first steps to ensuring your continued success with Hypno-Fasting.


What are the best foods for fast days?

There are no mandatory food choices for fast days, however, information on food choices and dietary nutrition has its very own chapter within the Hypno-Fasting book.


Can I drink alcohol whilst using Hypno-Fasting?

Yes, you can drink alcohol during the fasting process, however, you've got to remember that alcohol is high in calories and can also make you hungry (and reduce your self-control, which won't help you). So, whilst it's not a "no", it's often advisable to limit your alcohol intake in order to make a more significant change to your body fat, in a shorter amount of time.

Don't get in your own way!


Can I have cheat meals/days?

Unlike many other diets and fat-loss plans, Hypno-Fasting allows you to eat pretty much whatever you like, so the concept of needing to "cheat" doesn't really exist for us. You don't need to cheat when you can eat whatever you like!

The key thing not to cheat on is sticking to the plan as much as you possibly can. Sure, sometimes other commitments may mean you have to have a day off fasting, or cut a fast short, and that's fine, because we all have lives to live, but so long as you are sticking to the plan for the majority of the time, you'll get good results (...again, this topic is covered extensively in the book).


Can I snack whilst fasting?

This depends on the type of fasting plan that you choose, but you pretty much can (assuming you're snacking at the right times, and being relatively sensible in your portion sizes/food choices).


Should I weigh myself every day?

No, you don't need to weigh yourself daily. TBH, you don't even need to weigh yourself weekly, however, if you feel you must weigh yourself, I'd stick to once-a-week as your maximum... If you can leave it longer, that tends to work better for your motivation (as explained in the book).


What if I stop losing weight?

If, after a while, you stop losing weight, you may need to be honest with yourself as to whether you're sticking to the plan fully... and if not, then work on that first. After that, if you're still lacking results, then you may need to tweak other aspects, such as food choices and exercise options... Sure Hypno-Fasting works great (amazingly, in fact), but if you sit on your ass doing nothing all day, and you eat 5,000+ calories every day, it ain't gonna work.

If you need more info on how to make changes to your diet and exercise routines, check out the final 2 chapters of the book.
