In order to lose weight, several techniques are possible: changes in food, increase in physical activity or use devices. A new method is currently being validated, the hypnomagnetism. The overweight subjects have to listen to a soundtrack. The aim of this protocol is to validate this technique. The study population consists of a “Patients” sample who received the treatment HypnoSlim® and a “Placebo” sample who received placebo. To monitor changes in body composition of the subjects during the protocol, measurements of weight, circumferences and multifrequency bioimpedance were performed every 15 days during the 3 months of treatment. There are no significant differences at baseline between the placebo and the patient samples. After 3 months of treatment, in the “Patients” group, 61.4% of the population lost weight. According to BMI at the start of treatment, the effects are more or less significant. The average weight loss of 3 kg but can stretch up to 7.5kg. The weight lost is mostly fat. Some patients gained muscle mass or lost total body water. Placebo group did not lose weight on average during this treatment. At the end of this treatment, there are significant differences between “Patients” and “Placebo” on Weight, Fat Mass and Muscle Mass. This technique is useful for weight loss method, it would be interesting to practice for longer to analyze the long-term duration. It would be interesting to review the topics one year after the study to control their body composition. In order to lose weight, several techniques are possible.
