The bottom line is that we have been “sold” and “marketed” an idea that has been blatantly false.
That “fat will make you fat and cause you to drop dead from a heart attack.”
This notion has been pounded into our mass cultural awareness to the point where we literally have been hypnotized to take the “low fat” choice.
The skinny about fat
The problem is all these “low fat” choices are processed foods that are high in sugars and other carbs, which cause us to actually store fat, reduce our metabolisms and feel hungry all the time.
Part of the solution I offer in my Course “It’s Not Just About The Food!” is to address the kinds of foods we eat, back to healthy whole foods with healthy fats, proteins and vegetables. As a hypnotherapist, it became clear to me that I was often competing with the mis-informational hypnosis of endless TV ads touting low fat.
One of the motivations behind my weight loss course is to support your Mind to make the changes that your Body needs in order to shed the pounds and inches and increase your health and vitality. The power of the mass media is significant. Many of the clients who come to me worry that somehow hypnosis will enable me to “control” them.
The truth is there is no way I could ever compete with the deluge of hypnosis being spewed out 24-7 by the mainstream media. That is truly hypnosis.
Don’t believe me?
See for yourself…
I also highly recommend that you explore the work of Dr. Joseph Mercola’s recent article on the subject:
Here’s just a taste of what he has to say on the subject:
For the past half century, cholesterol has been touted as a grave health hazard, and dietary fat and cholesterol have been portrayed as being among the “deadliest” foods you could possibly eat.
This may finally change, as limitations for cholesterol will likely be removed from the 2015 edition of Dietary Guidelines for Americans. It’s about time really, as 60 years’ worth of research has utterly failed to demonstrate a correlation between high cholesterol and heart disease.
Not only does undamaged natural cholesterol not cause heart disease, it is actually one of the most important molecules in your body; indispensable for the building of cells and for producing stress and sex hormones, as well as vitamin D.
Cholesterol is also important for brain health, and helps with the formation of your memories. Low levels of HDL cholesterol have been linked to memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease, and may also increase your risk of depression, stroke, violent behavior, and even suicide.

Ultimately if you actually want to lose weight instead of being trapped on the diet roller coaster, you owe it to yourself to get the facts and the kind of support that will enable you to shake off the webs of mis-information that is directly aimed at hooking you on their artificial foods. Food that have been engineered in laboratories to be high in “Craveability” and “Snackability”.
Personally I’m done with being Pavlov’s dog. How about you?
