Hypnosis Doubles Weight Loss

Researchers from the University of Connecticut at Storrs ran a third meta-analysis of the effect of adding hypnosis to a behavioral program for weight reduction. They collected data from 2 more studies, and corrected for computational inaccuracies in the 2 previous meta-analyses.

Averaged across posttreatment and follow-up assessment periods from all the studies, the mean weight loss was 6.00 lbs. (2.72 kg) without hypnosis and 11.83 lbs. (5.37 kg) with hypnosis.
The mean effect size of this difference was 0.66 SD (standard deviations) Correlational analyses indicated that the benefits of hypnosis increased substantially over time (r = .74).
