The concept of a “Virtual Gastric Band” for weight loss, using hypnosis, has been around for years and has generated a lot of positive press and results globally.
Most people who follow a traditional dieting system will loose weight whilst they are on that diet. But as soon as the diet stops, the weight invariable returns, often leaving them heavier than before the diet began! It is estimated that 95% of all people who diet experience this cycle.
Most diets include some form of deprivation and/or denial; some involve counting calories, or points, but all merely serve to programme the mind to think about food. Thus, when an individual gives up a diet, they find themselves thinking about food more than they ever did before.
And, in the denial of comfort foods, in eating different meals to the rest of the family, three things happen: the brain fights against it, the body fights against it, and the day to day environment fights against it
How often do you hear of those who say to themselves each Monday: “That’s it! I’m going to stop eating. Just as soon as I’ve had my dinner. And then I’m going to eat salad only salad’ of course , the good intensions quickly lapse and its back to Stage One…………and misery all over again!
Because most eating habits are deeply engrained in the subconscious, the outcome is the same each time a certain set of circumstances prevail. Certain triggers can cause poor eating behaviours.
Conscious self denial of something can often increase the desire for that very thing, and eating a little less than we need – but eating anything we want – can actually lead to weight loss. Cutting out favourite foods completely is a bad idea, but cutting down on those foods is achievable and sustainable.
Everyone knows that eating less and exercising more will lead to a better body shape, improved fitness and all-round health. This programme employs a virtual gastric band and other mind management techniques, and is most decidedly NOT a diet. It enables clients to form new habits that they can maintain; there is no deprivation and these clients are liberated from having to think about food all the time; they eat consciously, and are able to listen to want their stomach and head is telling them
The results is steady, progressive weight loss – without dieting.
