Your Emotions: The Missing Piece in Weight Loss

By Dawson Church, PhD

I believe in EFT for weight loss for many reasons, but one of them is my own success story.

I've lost over 30 lbs using EFT to support my dietary choices, and kept the weight off for more than four years, so I know it's possible!

We're now offering EFT in a state-of-the-art online program called Skinny Genes.

This proven program blends cutting-edge neuroscience, powerful motivational techniques, a warmly supportive community, and Clinical EFT to help you lose weight, and keep it off forever.

Here's what sets it apart from other methods:

#1 - EFT Can Reduce or Eliminate Your Immediate Cravings.

Using EFT for 1 or 2 minutes can arrest your cravings when you're confronted with foods you normally can't resist. You then no longer feel compelled to eat them.

In research studies, EFT has been found to reduce cravings quickly and reliably. In one study (published in the peer-reviewed journal Integrative Medicine), EFT reduced cravings by 83%. A randomized controlled trial, published in early 2012 in Energy Psychology Journal, found that participants using EFT lost more weight than those who received talk therapy.

Even more remarkable, in the 12 months following the weight loss program, they didn't just maintain their weight loss. They actually kept on losing weight steadily and effortlessly over the course of the following year.

#2 - EFT Can Reduce or Eliminate Emotional Overeating.

If you have been using food to tranquilize years of past emotional hurts, EFT may be your best friend. EFT can bring you more emotional peace which, in turn, can lead to more sensible eating habits.

This emotional contributor to overeating, which EFT is designed to address, is the missing piece in most weight loss programs. My best-selling book EFT for Weight Loss contains proven success principles for using EFT to address these emotional issues. It includes a one-page Tapping Plan for Weight Loss that sets you up for success at the start of each day.

EFT has been evaluated in several scientific studies of food cravings and weight loss, and has been found to help people with emotional overeating and cravings. You can see these on our research pages.
