In a randomized, single-blind, crossover trial tested whether participants who used Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT - EFT Tapping) maintained reduced food cravings after 12-months and updates previously reported 6-month findings. 96 overweight/obese adults were allocated to a 4-week EFT treatment or waitlist condition. Degree of food craving, perceived power of food, restraint capabilities, and psychological symptoms were assessed pre- and posttest and at 12-month follow-up for collapsed groups. It appears EFT can result in participants maintaining reduced cravings over time and affect weight and BMI in overweight and obese individuals. Try tapping with this video because if you tap along doing EFT while watching the sessions of other people, your problems improve too! Several research studies have documented this phenomenon, called "Borrowing Benefits." For more about EFT for Weight loss, see or or visit our EFT for Weight loss page at
