Tapping For Weight Loss?

Woman doing EFT on the karate chop point for weight loss

This month I have decided to really dedicate some time to learning more about the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also called tapping. Why? For a few reasons.

1. I’ve tried it and it has worked.

2. I keep reading about it in every self-help book that I get. Seriously, I can’t escape it.

I’ve decided that there must be a reason that everywhere I turn I hear about EFT, and I try to take signs from the universe seriously. Hence, I’ve made it a goal to learn as much as possible this month about tapping, and, incorporate it into my life.

Tapping 101 – History and Science of EFT

Following is a great video that explains how tapping came about.

EFT For Weight Loss?

Normally when I start to think about something, I see a lot more of it. Call it what you want, but I feel that it is the law of attraction. So, when  I woke up today and found a video on ‘tapping for weight loss’ in my inbox, I wasn’t surprised.

As I said, tapping is something I want to learn more about, and weight loss is something I have been thinking about for a long, long time.

The video I received in my inbox was done by Nick Ortner’s (The guy behind The Tapping Solutionir?t=behati 20&l=as2&o=1&a=1401939414) sister, Jessica.

She starts out by talking about dieting…or at least the way most of us go about it. There are some real simple truths, such as:

  • It is important to change the way you look at food and dieting.
  • It is important to let go of the idea that there is a perfect diet, cause there is not.
  • The pressure we put on ourselves to be perfect is the downfall for us.

Then, she goes through a tapping session that quite honestly brought tears to my eyes. Obviously I have some stuck energy around the issues and pressures of dieting, and the stress that comes with it, because the emotions that came up while tapping were very strong.

Two Tapping Videos On Common Weight Issues

After Jessica’s video, I searched for some other videos focused on tapping and weight loss. The following videos hit home for me, and I figured that they may hit home for you as well.

1. I’m Too Fat!

When I found this first video about being ‘too fat’, I was a little offended. But then I realized that I say this all the time. My friends say this all the time. Strangers say this all the time. ‘I’m too fat’ just looks different – almost offensive – when it is written under a video and used as a topic for tapping.

If you find yourself saying, “I’m too fat!” then you will find this tapping session helpful. It will really help you to think about what you say, what you mean when you say it, how you really think, and then it will help you to push through the negative emotions of being ‘too fat’.

Seriously, take the time to do this one…I think you will like it as much as I did.

Note: He doesn’t say it, but do what he does (tapping on the points he taps) and repeat everything he says. 

2. Lose Your Jelly Belly

The dreaded stomach. Almost everyone struggles with the belly – even if they can tackle almost all the other areas on the body. The stomach is the hardest spot to lose the weight and the easiest place to become obsessed over…am I right?

This tapping session addresses the emotions around the ‘jelly belly’ and fat. She is quite a cute woman, and while the tapping is on serious issues that we deal with, it feels very lighthearted as you do it.

I came out of it determined to have more fun and less stress around my weight. If you do it, let me know what you felt after it in the comments below!

Tapping For All Issues Surrounding Weight

I think that weight, dieting, and worrying about how others view us, are highly emotional things for many of us. Since EFT is about releasing stuck and negative emotions, it just makes sense that tapping and the subject of weight loss would go together!

With tapping, we can stop focusing on the diet aspect (which never works out anywase) and start focusing on the issues behind why we eat what we eat, why we overeat, and why we always fall back into our old eating habits. And then, hopefully, move through those issues to better health.

  1. Bellaisa,

    Thanks for sharing this great information on tapping. I thought both videos were very interesting, and I absolutely agree that taking the time to flush out those negative thoughts around dieting to understand the greater reason behind everything that we do. I struggled with this and weight loss for years, and tapping seems like a much deeper realm that ill have to get into.

    Thanks again!

    1. It really is an interesting thing to use. I find that when I feel anxious or upset about…well, anything – tapping really does work to help me feel better. The more I learn about it, the more I trust it as a viable way to make that mind-body connection for good health.

  2. This may seem irrelevant, but is it really necessary to be looking good? Isn’t it the intellectual property of a person which really matters? I don’t disagree with any of your ideas of the post but somehow after reading the post, this question came to my mind.

    1. Totally relevant Khaiche. I think there is a lot of pressure on women to look a certain way, and that it really shouldn’t matter what we look like – at all, but how we feel.

  3. Hey Bellaisa
    Tapping sounds like an interesting method. Weight loss is emotion filled and stressful and any relief would be welcome. I also find that the stomach is the absolute killer area as you said. Even when I am at my thinnest, I still have a belly!
    thanks for the motivation

  4. i did tapping already. it makes me feel more concentrated and focused on what have to do (and also what i’ve done). it is similar to mediatation for me. Thank you for interesting article.

  5. Great article Bellaisa !
    I have heard before about the tapping method as well. Glad to hear that it worked for you. I think if you are working upon this method then you should first learn to control your mind and get out the tension from you mind. Only then thing thing can work out…!

    1. Tapping in itself helps you to get the tension from your mind. Every day I’m hearing about more and more people who use tapping for everything from weight loss to dealing with stress. It is simply a great tool.

  6. This is the first time I read about tapping to lose weight. Wow, I never knew it is quite effective for improving one’s weight. Thanks for the great read 🙂

  7. Hi;

    Thank you for sharing these video’s and for your very informative article.

    I love Emotional Freedom Technique EFT and have used it for many symptoms but never really thought of it for weight loss.

    I will use a combination of these along with my Zen Bodi Fit – which helps me increase my leptin receptors which in turn tell me that I am full and to stop eating.

    Thanks again
