Results: For the last 35 years, many North Americans have sought to attain lasting, significant weight loss. A variety of programs have been utilized, most of which show short-term weight loss with rapid return to, or beyond, initial weight following the treatment period. Hypnosis has been employed, with some success, to aid in the identification of related psychological issues, to develop healthy alternatives, and to reinforce the alternatives chosen. Appropriately designed case studies can provide valuable information for the development and refinement of therapeutic techniques. In this paper, the five cases discussed have been selected to demonstrate more specifically the types of hypnosis activities employed, some characteristics of the successful subjects, and some specific strategies they utilized for lasting success.
