When it gets right down to it, the way we eat has a major impact on a variety of deeply important areas connected to health and how we feel, such as:
- How your digestion works
- How your hormones function
- The impact of stress-based illness
- Recurring mood swings
- Yo-yo eating habits
- Changing eating regimes
- Maintaining an exercise programme
So it’s vitally important to ensure you get into a regular eating pattern throughout the day to maintain blood sugar levels, which prevents energy highs and lows and mood change. It’s okay to buy into the 80%:20% rule of healthy versus fun foods, so that instead of being all-or-nothing, you can relax into a mindset of slow-and-steady-wins-the-race.
But what if you’re one of the growing numbers where your eating has gone out-of-control. Are you someone who with all the best will (in the world) feels uncertain that you can ever get off the runaway-train that is weight-on-weight-off-weight-on-again? Are your intentions firm and steady until something triggers you into running-for-cover with your reliable friend ‘food’ who is always there for you?
Why is it so hard to change?
If you’ve made every effort, to bring about considerable weight loss, yet found that over time you’re right back where you were – or heavier – then you’ll be pleased to learn there is a perfectly good explanation.
It’s not you and it’s not your fault!
And it’s important that you know that one important fact because this alone will help you learn that you can move forward into the body you desire, with greater energy levels and top-notch health without having to feel like a failure.
However, if you’re not feeling great nor losing weight despite everything, then the reasons are simple, but they sit outside of conscious awareness so are more challenging to access. For some this may sound far-fetched, but believe me when I say these techniques have the potential to set-you-free, as they have done for many others, myself included.
How habits work
If you join the newsletter (to your right) you can find out more as there is an included report on how hypnosis works, which explains the why’s and wherefores of the conscious and unconscious habits we form.
It shows how unhelpful habits get formed and stick around until you change them, and how this information helps to understand why the sorts of approaches made at KTDH are so good at breaking them, especially where the conscious-minded approaches have failed you before.
It’s not them and it’s not you – it just is. This information can revolutionize how you go about making deep and lasting change for the better.
As an aside, on the whole the approaches I use now, no longer involve hypnosis as such, and this is because I’ve discovered other quicker acting techniques that keep you very much in the driving seat throughout the entire process.

Why does the weight stay despite your efforts?
Our habits, by nature, are deep-rooted and designed to free up your time so you don’t have to consider anew how to approach every task of everyday, otherwise how time-consuming would that be?
But it means that outworn habits can hang around well past their sell-by-date, which is not so great, as you know!
Clients enjoy the insights and often can’t believe just how much their feelings around a past experience have changed into feelings of detachment as they increasingly gain command over previously associated feelings.
It’s commonly known as the Apex Syndrome where clients even talk down how much a particular aspect was holding them back. Of course it’s important for me to keep a record and remind them of how much on a scale of 0-10 something was plaguing them. And it’s a very good reminder to see just how far you’ve come!
Are your eating habits contributing?
Are your eating habits contributing to poor health? As already mentioned your eating habits are vitally important. It’s not about obsessing over ‘good’ versus ‘bad’ food choices every day, but more about the quality of food, how you eat it and being in control of your behaviour in relation to food, without those behaviours derailing some other area of your life.
You will know when those un-natural drivers are gone, because you will be relaxed around food, making choices that suit your body, instead of your emotions.
And therein sits true freedom!
