Commercial weight loss programs

Commercial weight loss programs

Has anyone ever used a weightloss clinic like Dr Bernstein? Their's sound quite good but only if you can spared $1200. -- $2000. Some people might consider the $2000. grant if you can afford to pay in advance. I, personally, can't afford it!

How to effectively lose weight for weight loss surgery?

How to effectively lose weight for weight loss surgery?

I'm not even sure if weight loss surgery is the best way to deal with my weight problems. I just keep gaining weight no matter what i'm doing. I am on c-pap machine to help me breath and any excursion and i'm unable to breath. All i can do to be comfortable is to lay still. I feel hopeless.

Has anyone tried hypnotherapy for weight-loss

Has anyone tried hypnotherapy for weight-loss

I realise that my inability to lose weight is psychological. I've been through a lot of therapy over the years and we've identified the sources and triggers. But even though I am aware of my triggers and emotional eating and secret eating habits, I just can't seem to get into the mindframe of "now I will only eat clean and healthy", "no more bingeing" etc. The big irony is that I do really enjoy eating healthy, but I also go and eat lots of rubbish.
