In a study conducted at the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh, individuals successfully used imagery to increase their metabolism up to 600 calories per day by using visualizations. Remember, your brain is the part of you body that regulates all of your bodily functions including your heartbeat, your breathing, your digestion and everything else! By using visualizations, your brain can reprogram your body to become a fat burning machine.
With each visualization you enhance the mechanisms within your body that regulate your metabolism. You imagine them functioning at full levels. As your brain begins to imagine these mechanisms intensified, your metabolism increases. As your metabolism increases, you begin to lose weight without effort. You become one of those people who can eat and burn the calories without doing much.
Your set-point is the weight that your body is naturally pre-determined to be. As you have no control over how tall you will be, or what your eye or hair color will be, you don’t have control over your set point, thus it’s difficult to change your weight. Some people do it through excessive dieting, but that can contribute to an eating disorder. Your body is biologically and genetically determined to weight within a certain weight range. So, after you lose the weight, you will quickly regain it. However, it is possible to lower your set point. When that happens, you instantly decrease your appetite and your body maintains the homeostasis of a lower weight.
This can be done through hypnosis, visualizations and guided imagery. One of the best ways to get this done is with the think & shrink hypnosis program. This program contains certain guided visualizations to help people lower their set points and increase their metabolism. Check it out.
