How to Lower Your Set Point and Increase Your Metabolism Using Hypnosis and Guided Visualizations
In a study conducted at the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh, people successfully used imagery to increase their metabolism up to 600 calories per day through the use of visualizations. Remember, your brain is the part of your body that regulates all of your bodily functions, including your heartbeat, breathing, 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 working at full levels. As your brain begins to imagine that these mechanisms are intensifying, your metabolism increases. As your metabolism increases, you begin to effortlessly lose weight. You become one of those people who can eat and burn calories without doing much.
Your set point is the weight that your body is naturally predetermined from. Since you have no control over your height, or the color of your eyes or hair, you have no control over your set point, making it 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 weigh within a certain weight range. So after losing weight, you will quickly get it back. However, it is possible to lower your set point. When that happens, your appetite instantly decreases and your body maintains lower weight homeostasis.
This can be done through hypnosis, visualizations, and guided imagery. One of the best ways to do this 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.
