I was addicted to chocolate and haven't touched any for over three weeks now and I've also lost 5kgs
(PRWEB) September 9, 2009
The World Health Organization predicts that by 2015, 700 million adults will be obese.
Such a grim statistic has inspired renowned Australian Sport Scientist to discover what he believes to be the missing link to sustainable weight loss - and keep it off forever….and it is as simple as a tap on the head.
Andrew McCombe, author of the revolutionary new book and program, Activate Your Weight Loss, believes the reason that most diets and exercise programs fail is because they only address the physical aspect of the person. They don't address the negative or stressful thoughts, feelings or beliefs of the individual and it's these things that influence the behaviours which contribute to obesity, diabetes and coronary heart disease.
A recent study published in the July 15 American Journal of Epidemiology supports this evidence, with findings that people worried about jobs, bills and other aspects of daily life tend to become and remain obese, according to a study of psychological stress and body mass index.
McCombe believes that when people address and dissipate the stressful thoughts, feelings and beliefs that cause their poor lifestyle choices, such as food addictions, cravings and overeating, their body will improve by default.
To dissipate the stress McCombe uses a revolutionary technique, which has a growing following in the US and UK, has already helped thousands of people combat their food addictions, banish their chocolate cravings, and stop overeating.
Tapping or EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is like acupuncture without the needles. "It sounds like another crazy weight loss fad but this really works," says McCombe.
"I was addicted to chocolate and haven't touched any for over three weeks now and I've also lost 5kgs," says Margaret, McCombe's former client.
Another woman lost 5 kg after just three tapping sessions and another has not eaten banana bread or lollies since doing the simple tapping technique.
A chocolate craving can disappear after just five minutes of tapping specific acupressure points on the head, eye, under the nose, chin, and arm.
"If you're addicted to chocolate, can't stop at just one Oreo or keep overeating this can really help and it takes away the need for sheer willpower and determination," he says.
"This is revolutionary because it means that if people were to spend 5 minutes a day doing EFT on their negative, limiting or conflicting thoughts, feelings, beliefs, doubts, fears and stressors they will begin to lose weight with ease and therefore eliminate the need for those extra gym sessions and all that unnecessary calorie counting."
