What is EFT and How Does it Work for Weight Loss?
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is the
Craig gave to his brand of TFT (Thought
Field Therapy). TFT was developed by Roger
Callahan, Ph.D. which is taught at his site,
Dr. Callahan believed there were specific
protocols for each problem, and he teaches
complex algorithms for each individual problem,
so for instance if you wanted to lose weight,
you would tap on certain specific areas
in a certain order.
Craig took Callahan's training
then said to himself, "why not just use all the tapping
points?" reasoning that you were likely to
hit on the proper ones by default. Craig
method was successful beyond his wildest
dreams, and EFT has become a worldwide sensation.
There are many variations of
energy therapy, starting from
TFT, to EFT and beyond
soup" of different techniques

EFT for weight loss and other
EFT is an easy to learn, easy to use method
of eliminating the blocked emotional passages,
and interrupting your habitual thought patterns.
This same technique is employed in NLP by
interrupting your patterned behavior. Since
most of our so called "phobic"
responses, and triggered behaviors, including
overeating, are based on patterns, or habits,
this simple process which can interpret
the patterns is very useful and effective.
If you drive a car but don't understand
how an engine works, then you can use EFT.
No Ph.D. is required. There is nothing to
be lost by trying it, and everything to
be gained if it does work for you. No drugs,
no needles, and no lifetime therapy needed!
What is NLP?
NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is the
study of self communication. How we communicate
with ourselves through our beliefs, values
and expectations will greatly influence
our outcomes. In other words, if you tell
yourself you are a fat cow, you'll most
likely continue to overeat (self fulfilling
prophecy). The name NLP was coined by John
Grinder & Richard Bandler. Their work
evolved from their study of expert communicators
such as Milton Erickson, Virginia Satire,
and Gregory Bateson.
What Grinder & Bandler discovered through
a method they called "modeling"
was that if any person could achieve a result,
then other people could be taught to do
the same thing, by following the same basic
actions, including thought patterns of the
person they were modeling.
NLP Fast Phobia Cure
Early NLP worked with techniques such as
the "Fast Phobia Cure." This and
other rapid change techniques were adopted
into psychological treatments as they produced
a better result in less time. Most traditional
therapists believe they cannot eliminate
a phobia, but instead work to desensitize
a person -- hoping to lessen their symptoms.
EFT and NLP on the other hand can eliminate
the phobia entirely in a few sessions, rather
than life-long therapy.
NLP Practitioners are skilled communicators
and are able to assist clients in determining
their underlying motivations, internal conflicts,
limiting belief patterns, and more. Using
these simple methods, men, women and even
children have learned how to create and
obtain the results they want whether for
weight loss, career success, or relationships.
In the OneMoreBite-Weightloss
program we'll use many NLP patterns
including Parts Therapy, Time
Lines, Changing Limiting Beliefs,
the Compulsion Blow-out technique
and more. Sessions are geared
for the issues you face - it is
not a cookie cutter process where
everyone gets the same treatment.
We are all different, and we all
have different experiences and
beliefs we've formed based on
those experiences. Once you learn
these methods you can continue
using them throughout your life
and change your own limiting beliefs,
thus achieving the results you
want. This can be achieved in
as little as a few sessions, rather
than weekly therapy for several
