Weight Loss: The Power of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Clinical Nutrition


with Reine DuBois

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as “tapping”, is revolutionising the weight loss journey by addressing the critical, often overlooked emotional and psychological aspects of weight management. This innovative approach goes beyond traditional diet and exercise, targeting the root causes of unhealthy eating patterns and weight gain. EFT involves tapping on specific meridian points on the body while vocalising personal statements, aiming to release emotional blockages, thereby reducing stress and anxiety, common triggers for overeating and binge eating.

Incorporating the expertise of a clinical nutritionist into this process enhances the effectiveness of EFT. A clinical nutritionist can provide personalised dietary guidance, ensuring that nutritional needs are met while addressing emotional eating habits. This combination offers a holistic approach to weight loss, focusing on both emotional well-being and physical health.

By addressing the emotional triggers that lead to unhealthy eating habits, individuals can better understand and break these cycles. The partnership between EFT and clinical nutrition offers a comprehensive strategy for sustainable weight management. As stress levels decrease and nutritional balance is achieved, the inclination to use food as a coping mechanism diminishes, leading to healthier eating habits and weight loss.

Moreover, EFT promotes self-acceptance and body positivity, essential components of a successful weight loss journey. The added support from a clinical nutritionist ensures that dietary changes are not only effective but also maintainable in the long term. This approach empowers individuals to take control of their health, making weight loss a more attainable and fulfilling endeavour.

In essence, the combination of expertise from both a clinical psychologist trained in EFT and a clinical nutritionist offers a powerful and holistic approach to weight loss. This strategy addresses both the psychological aspects of eating and the importance of a balanced diet, leading to lasting results and overall well-being.
