The Hottest New Diet: Tapping on Your Face to Lose Weight
I’m not sure there’s any diet that sounds easier than this one.
There’s a new book out called “Tapping For Weight Loss”, and it claims you can lose weight just by tapping your fingers on your face and body.
There are two steps. One, when you’re craving something unhealthy, you’re supposed to dig down deep to the root of what’s bothering you at that moment. Like, are you stressed about work? Are you worried about money? Whatever it is.
Then you tap two fingers on nine specific acupuncture pressure points while you tell yourself things are going to be alright. Say something like, “Even though I’m afraid I won’t be able to pay off my credit card, I accept how I feel and I’m okay.”
The nine pressure points are: The fleshy part on the side of your hand below the pinky, your eyebrow, next to your eye socket, under your eye, under your nose, your chin, your collarbone, under your arm just below the armpit, and the crown of your head.
If you tap each point seven times while you tell yourself things are going to be okay, apparently it kills any craving for junk food.
This sounds crazy . . . but in a clinical study, 89 women tried it and lost an average of 16 pounds in eight weeks. They all also kept the weight off six months later.
