666 Weight Loss

A very simple way to start your weight loss program is called 666 Weight Loss.

Do not eat anything between 6.00PM and 6.00AM 6 days a week. You can drink water only during this period, definiatly no alcohol, no fizzy drinks or fruit juices – just water. This is not about deprivation because you should be preparing for and experiencing sleep during that period.

One day a week you can eat after 6.00PM and before 6.00AM. from 6.00AM to 6.00PM you can eat normally.

People who eat within 2 hours of sleep, who eat nocturnally risk weight gain.

People who have little self-discipline generally have difficulty losing excess weight too.

The daily 12 hour fast teaches you not to eat in the 2 hour period before sleep. It teaches you not to eat nocturnally. It teaches you self-discipline.

Yes, you’ll be hungry at times—but it’s not necessarily overwhelming or constant.

Challenging the short-term urges to eat will reward you with development of new habits of behavior and weight loss.

It may also lower blood glucose levels and insulin resistance and reduce inflammation and cardiovascular risk.

“Studies suggest you keep more muscle and lose more fat than on other diets, even if you lose the same number of pounds.” That’s because after about 12 hours of fasting, you run out of stored energy from carbohydrates and start burning stored fat.


Anger related to hunger

Anger related to hunger.

Anger related to hunger. Hangry is an anagram of the words ‘hungry’ and ‘angry’. Listed in Collins Dictionary, Hanger describes the typhoon of grumpiness when hungry as meaning “irritable – as a result of feeling hungry.”

‘Food swings’ such as irritability, anger, stress and anxiety related to hunger are caused by a dip in the brain’s neuro hormone serotonin, according to research by Luca Passamonti at  Cambridge University and reported in Biological Psychiatry Journal.

Marjorie Nolan, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association says, “When [blood sugar] is low, the hypothalamus is triggered and levels of several hormones such as growth hormone, leptin and ghrelin are affected.  This imbalance then causes a shift in neurotransmitters and suppresses serotonin receptors.”

Serotonin is a hormone that helps regulate mood and appetite. Cut off your body’s ability to process it, and prepare for some mood swings. Anger and extreme frustration, Nolan says, are common responses.

“An organism, when it’s hungry, can ignore hunger signals if it wanted to, but it wouldn’t survive very long,” says Paul J. Currie PhD, a Professor of Psychology at Reed College, Portland Oregon. “But if, in addition to those growling stomach pains, there was also a mind aspect — increasing emotionality, anxiety and stress — then those signals will be more likely to get the organism’s attention.”

Dr Currie says one hormone called ghrelin is the main culprit. “When we’re hungry, there’s an increased release of ghrelin from the stomach, which increases our motivation to consume food. Elevated levels of ghrelin might also activate the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, otherwise known as the stress axis.”

Ghrelin receptors are also present in the hypothalamus. The more this hormone circulates, the more churned up the brain gets. “Animal studies show that direct ghrelin injections into the hypothalamus increase anxiety-like behavior, suggesting there’s overlapping brain circuits mediating food intake and emotional behavior,” said Dr Currie.

“‘Anger’ as a result of hunger is in part, personality based,’ says Marjorie Nolan  “If you are someone who is more prone to feeling frustrated or ‘moody’ to other life situations you are more likely to have this reaction when hungry.” 

Anger as a result of hunger is also a learned response. It becomes something we do because we are hungry, not necessarily because of the influence of brain chemicals.

The Circus Comedy Hypnosis Show

Circus Comedy Hypnosis Show 

Peter Zapfella has performed his Comedy Hypnosis Show across Australia and abroad too. This has given him a depth of knowledge and understanding of hypnotic trance that few hypnotherapists have ever experienced. then came the opportunity to perform a circus comedy hypnosis show at one of Australia’s iconic venues.

It all started in the usual way… an email inquiry.

An events company was asking me to do a Comedy Hypnosis Show at the iconic Luna Park, diagonally opposite the Opera House on Sydney Harbour. It was to be the annual Christmas Party for one of Australias biggest building and construction companies.

My Comedy Hypnosis Shows  would usually run around 60 – 90 minutes, and occasionally longer. Truth is, my shows would almost always run over time, as the fun and excitement on stage would carry us away.

A second email from the event organizers explained that according to their new schedule for the show I would only have 30 minutes on stage. I was less than happy about the idea, however I really wanted the opportunity to perform at Luna Park so I agreed. In any case, I thought I could somehow squeeze in another 15 or 20 minutes.

They would fly me across the country, from Perth, Western Australia to Sydney and put me up in a top hotel, plus pay me the fee I demanded. It was a good deal for me.

Days before departure I received another email from the organizers to tell me that the entertainment had evolved into a circus. There would be fire-eaters, flying trapeze and other circus acts too. I would get just 10 minutes on stage.

Ten minutes? I thought out aloud. I cant do a ten minute show. By the time I do a pre-show warm-up and call volunteer performers I will be out of time. This is crazy.

I phoned them immediately in protest, and quickly realised I was not going to get any extension of time. If I was only going to get 10 minutes on stage I was going to need to find creative ways to speed up the whole process.

When I worked for Spano, a legendry old time American stage hypnotist,  I observed he often took up to 40 minutes to do his pre-talk, performer selection and hypnotic trance inductions – only then did the show begin. I had a much faster show, but 10 minutes for the whole show was ridiculous. Spanos shows were always honest. No stooges or actors.

You already have a ‘Six-pack’!

You already have a six-pack.

The problem is, it is covered by a layer of ugly fat.

The 6-pack program has a 3 prong approach.

1. A healthy fat burning diet.

2. Overcoming stress, anxiety and depression.

3. A daily exercise program, to burn excess fat and build muscle.

The most relevant muscle groups to develop are the;

  • Transverus abdominis
  • Rectus abdominis
  • External abdominal obliques
  • Internal abdominal obliques

We collectively call them the abs. You already have a six-pack deep inside.

When we make a choice it is a logical, rational decision made between two or more options. It often involves an analytical cognitive thinking process within the cerebral cortex, or fore brain.

Humans are not born with the ability to think in this way; it is learnt. Children do not appear to have the ability to think analytically until about the age of seven, when their consciousness breaks the surface. Before that they are largely thinking unconsciously.
