When your weight goes over your ideal weight it is basically due to a mismatch between the amount you eat and how much energy your body needs.

There are some medical conditions which can alter the way your body uses the energy you take in eg a low thyroid hormone level ( hypothyroidism).

It is important to see your general practice doctor to check if there are any medical causes for your weight gain which can be treated.

Hypnotherapy along with cognitive behaviour therapy can help you to reduce and then keep your weight down long term.

It can help you identify and change the unhelpful attitudes, habits and patterns of behaviour that you have developed over the years which lead to eating more than your body needs.
