When Aaron Kershaw, West1Media CEO, quit smoking using hypnosis we at Westchester1.com (a division of West1Media) became quite curious. We asked George Wissing, Westchester and Rockland’s premier Smoking Cessation Specialist, how he helped Aaron “quit”. Maybe we should have worded our question differently. Mr. Wissing stated, “We are not wired to “quit” or lose anything – our mind is designed to perform as reliably as gravity.” The word “quit” does seem to be almost synonymous with stopping smoking so we were surprised that Mr. Wissing took exception to this word. He continued, “Your inner mind takes what we say very literally and words like “quit’ and “lose” (referring to ‘losing’ weight) have negative meaning. We are taught to never quit. We like to win not lose. Your mind is more likely to support goals if they are worded in a more positive manner.” Changing negatively worded goals to positive ones seems to be quite an easy thing to do. In other words it is better to set your goals in positive terms such as; “I am a non-smoker” or ”I now live a healthy lifestyle”. “Quitting and losing are synonymous with failure and can fight your inner nature,” says Mr. Wissing. Certified by bothrepparttar American Board of Hypnotherapy andrepparttar 147108 International Hypnosis Federation, Mr. Wissing sees clients in Westchester and Rockland for private hypnosis sessions. He helps people reduce weight, stop smoking, get over bad habits, relieve fears and even helps clients reduce chronic pain. But is it true that he can help people in only one hour? We checked this out with our CEO Aaron Kershaw.

What should you do if you have 33 pounds of fat on your body?

If you are man that weighs 200 pounds...nothing. It's normal.

With allrepparttar obesity epidemic scare and weight loss diet hype being tossed around inrepparttar 147107 media these days, people are easily confused about what's healthy for them.

For example, have you heardrepparttar 147108 "fact" that no body fat is better?

Nope... it's untrue.

The ideal percentage of body fat for men is generally between 15 and 18 percent, while for women it is between 18 and 22 percent.

That means if you are a man that weighs 200 pounds, Your ideal amount of fat to have would be around 33 pounds.

In order to look great you need to be at or near your ideal weight. Your "ideal weight" is where you don't look obese, while you still have a healthy amount of body fat.

Is too much fat bad? Of course it is. Research suggests it can lead to diabetes, heart problems, etc.

But how do you know what is right for you?

* Should you have a daily intense workout plan involving heavy weights? * Should you use dieting drugs and low calorie diets to lose weight? * Should you try supplements and steroids to increase muscle mass and lose body fat?

The answer to these questions is...you need expert advice.
