Woman praises hypnosis for helping her to lose weight fast
A woman has spoken about how being hypnotised led to her being able to lose weight fast after years of struggling.
Primary school teacher Kim Robinshaw, 31, had ballooned to 21 stone and a dress size 24 because thyroid problems and a hysterectomy had plunged her into a cycle of comfort eating and feeling too unhappy to go to the gym, the Daily Mail reports.
When she realised she was so heavy, she confided in a friend and was urged to go and see a hypnotist, who convinced her she had been fitted with a gastric band.
Ms Robinshaw ate the same diet as someone who had gone under the knife for the procedure and even felt sick if she overindulged, just as she would have with surgery.
Consequently, she has slimmed to a size 14 to 16 in just nine months and said her life has changed completely.
"I think the results are incredible … I just can't get over it," she enthused.
Last month, a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition recommended avoiding restaurants to lose weight fast, as people tend to eat healthier at home.
