Weight Loss

Positive Weight Control

Life can be great again– at your best weight!

Factors that can contribute to weight gain include stress, depression, traumatic events, divorce, and job loss.

In most cases, taking more calories into your body than it can burn causes unintended weight gain. Weight gain is also common as you reach middle age and your metabolism slows down.

Brain retraining can help you lose weight, while gaining energy and improving your awareness of your body’s needs and signals.

Cravings are powerful desires. Our brains are ‘hard-wired’ to appreciate and to pursue natural rewards such as food and sex.

Uncontrolled food cravings can lead to obesity and all the health problems it creates. Cues that can trigger cravings may be sights, sounds, smell or thoughts. Cues activate the brain’s powerful “go!” circuit creating cravings.

The inhibitory system in our brain is responsible for putting on the brakes to our cravings – for telling the rest of the brain to ‘stop.’

Research suggests that some people have better ‘brakes’ than others. Those with weaker brakes will have greater difficulty managing food cravings, which puts them at a higher risk for weight gain and potential obesity.

Brain retraining to increase Alpha and Theta brainwave patterns has been shown by research to decrease cravings and improve the likelihood of sustained recovery. (Peniston & Kulkosky, 1989 & 1991; Saxby & Peniston, 1995).

Alpha-Theta brainwave patterns are associated with deep relaxation, increased spirituality, and sense of personal well-being.
