NLP & EFT Weight Loss

What is EFT and How Does it Work for Weight Loss?

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is the name Gary 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. Karate Chop Tapping Point

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

This "alphabet soup" of different techniques (all based on the same premise) has created names such as TAT, TFT, EFT, BSFF and others. Check the Weight Loss Tools page for links to many books and tapes for learning to use EFT for weight loss and other emotional issues.

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 years.
