Food As A Reward – Definition

Using food as a reward is a habit stored in your subconscious mind. Hypnosis can help you change this habit and replace how you feel with new, positive, healthy patterns.
Meridian Peak Hypnosis works with clients in our offices and from anywhere worldwide via Internet hypnosis sessions.

Food is frequently given as a reward to reinforce good actions or achievements. This can be observed in a variety of contexts, including parenting, education, and the workplace. In the short term, using food as a reward can be successful because it can encourage people to engage in desired activities or accomplish certain objectives. Long-term, though, using food as a reward may have unfavorable effects.

Using Food As An Escape From Unhealthy Relationships

Using food as an escape from unhealthy relationships is a common coping mechanism people use to deal with emotional pain and stress. When someone is in an unhealthy relationship, they may feel trapped and powerless, and turning to food can provide a temporary sense of comfort and control. Using food as an escape is not a healthy long-term solution. In fact, it can lead to a number of negative health consequences, including weight gain, poor nutrition, and an increased risk of developing chronic diseases.

Food As a Coping Mechanism for Stress or Unpleasant Feelings

When food is used as a coping mechanism for stress or unpleasant feelings, food as a reward can result in overeating or binge eating. Additionally, rewarding behavior with food can lead to the development of disordered eating patterns, especially in children and teenagers.

Hypnosis Can Help You Break Free of Using Food As A Reward

Meridian Peak Hypnosis can help clients replace unfavorable connections with food and establishing new healthy routines by gaining access to and working with the subconscious mind. Hypnosis gains direct access to this part of the mind, gives the habits/routines/responses a ‘way out’ and most importantly: replaces them with a new habit, routine and/or response.

Hypnosis helps your mind create the change you imagine: a relationship with food that is healthy.
