Yes, and no.... weight loss hypnosis, or self hypnosis for weight loss, will only work if: #1 the hypnotic script contains suggestions to the user for a proper, healthy diet and calorie reduction, #2 the hypnotic script encourages the user to excercise more, and #3 the user actually acts upon these suggestions.

The mind is the most potent weight loss tool a person has; a strong sense of self, a strong desire to succeed, and the self discipline to change the bad habits that led to weight gain in the first place are the key ingredients for successful weight loss. If a person only "imagines" themselves as thin, that is where the image will stay... in the imagination. The desire and discipline to enact the dream in the 3D here and now world is what will ultimately accomplish real world, 3D results. Weight loss hypnosis can be a very valuable, key tool in motivating an over weight person to action, by instilling valuable, habit changing suggestions deep into the mind. Deep in the subconscious mind is where your "Being" evolves, and it is there that you can literally change who you are, mentally. By changing who you are mentally, you can then proceed to change who you are physically, by changing your physical habits.

Hypnosis for weight loss is key for "changing your mind" but you will still need to change your physical habits, in order to change your physical body. Eat right and excercise, it always boils down to that, but weight loss self hypnosis can be a key motivator!
