Weight Loss & Weight Management


Positive Change Hypnotherapy Gran Canaria

People who are happy with their weight and keep to a healthy weight don’t actually have to try very hard. They just do things in a certain way.

Dieting usually leads to the feelings of despair and the self punishment of denying oneself of certain foods can wear the dieter down. If you are able to achieve your weight loss the punishment is perceived to be over and then the abuse of food starts again.

Dieting usually then turns into yo-yo style weight loss/gain but inevitably the weight gained is more than the person lost and there begins the unhappy weight loss cycle.

Does this sound familiar? The secret to dieting success is breaking an existing habit and replacing it with new ones. People obtain habits throughout their lives, either from being taught by our elders or peers, or through trial and error.

Advice and Tips for Losing Weight

BMI Your BMI is a measure of whether you’re a healthy weight for your height. BMI is the best assessment of weight and can be used by most people. However, it’s not suitable for children under the age of two. Body Mass Index is a number calculated from an individual’s weight and height, that is used to determine whether a person is within, or outside of, a normal weight range.

Use the Body Mass Index Calculator to find your BMI.

  • BMI below 18.5: A score this low means that you may be underweight. There are a number of possible reasons for this. Your GP can help you find out more, and achieve a healthy weight.
  • BMI 18.5-24.9: This is a healthy range. It shows that you’re a healthy weight for your height. However, it’s still important to eat a healthy, balanced diet and include physical activity in your daily life if you want to maintain a healthy weight.
  • BMI 25.0 or more: Your BMI is above the ideal range. This means that you’re heavier than is healthy for someone of your height. Excess weight can put you at increased risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. It’s time to take action.
  • BMI of 30 or greater A BMI of 30 or more is considered obese. Being obese increases your risk for serious conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. See your doctor to learn how to manage your weight.

Become Active All you need to do is be active for 30 minutes per day. This doesn’t have to be in one go, it can be made up of multiple activities as long as the activities make you slightly out of breath and make you feel warm. If you were previously active remind yourself why you were previously active, what your motivations were and what you got out of it.

Choose an activity you enjoy and don’t expect to be as fit as you were and start slowly increasing the duration and frequency. Your experience of exercise will help you get back into it quicker than someone who’s never been active. Here are some tips for building exercise into your lifestyle:

The office worker

  • Cycle or walk all or part of your journey to work. Get off a bus one stop before your destination
  • Go for a walk during your lunch break. It will re-energise you for the afternoon without impacting your “free time” in the evening
  • Stand up straight and relax your knees while talking on the telephone
  • Take the stairs instead of the lift, or get out of the lift a few floors early and use the stairs
  • Use your lunch break to exercise. Go to the gym, or you may have access to a nearby swimming pool or a park to take a walk

The busy mum

  • Walk your children to and from school. This will also assist in helping your children develop patterns of activity
  • Take your children to the swimming pool or join them in the garden or the local park
  • Housework is a good workout. Put on some of your favourite upbeat music to dance to as you clean


  • As you get older it’s even more important to stay active. Exercise will help you to stay mobile and independent in your later years
  • Cooking, housework and walking while you’re on the phone can help to keep you mobile
  • Work in the garden or mow the grass. Pushing, bending, squatting, carrying, digging, pruning and picking things up will use different muscle groups, improving your balance and co-ordination
  • Go out for short walks. Start with five to 10 minutes and increase the pace from leisurely to brisk and the duration of the walks
