The Virtual Gastric Band
Weight Loss Program
Use the power of your mind to think and feel differently about food
It is not a diet !
What is it ?
A completely safe, natural, non-invasive, non-surgical weight loss option that provides permanent results ,with no side effects and at a fraction of the cost of Bariatric Surgery.
Pioneered in the UK by Sheila Granger, The Virtual Gastric Band Weight Loss Program is a safe and non invasive system designed to change the way you think and feel about food.
It is not a diet !! nor does it evolve shakes, calorie counting or endless hours at the gym ! Yay ! It works by using the power of Hypnosis to retrain your mind to be satisfied on smaller amounts of food.
Initial trials in the UK showed positive results in the 24 out of the 25 people that participated and as a result of this success, clinical trials are currently being negotiated with the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK. This groundbreaking system is having great success across the UK, USA, Canada and Australia.
Current research is showing that even a weight loss of 5% can have significant health benefits to the body such as reducing the risk of Type 2 Diabetes, lowering Cholesterol and decreasing blood pressure. My clients that have undergone the program not only do they lose weight they report they feel better , they sleep better are happier and more in control than they have been for along while.
This program that gives safe and predictable results consists of four, one on one sessions, the first 60 minutes in duration ,the remaining three all 30 minutes. After the first session you will receive a set of guidelines to take home and a download to listen to each night. When followed clients are losing on average between 2-3 kg in the first week, followed by a kilo per week thereafter.
Who is it for ?
Majority of our clients know exactly what to do when it comes to losing weight, in fact they could all probably write a book ! However, they struggle with staying on track, or their old patterns and beliefs about food keep getting in the way of their goals. You know those words we all use to hear as children," eat up all your dinner and you will grow up to be a big boy/girl," "or clear your plate there are children starving in the world". So we then wonder why we can't leave food, or why we eat for the wrong reasons, bored, sad comfort. When you think about it any diet will work as long as you stay on them and that's where people struggle, they struggle with that all or nothing attitude. You go on a diet, then eat something you're not meant to eat and think you have ruined it, so you eat the rest of the ice cream, block of chocolate, telling yourself you will start again on Monday and Monday gets further and further away.
The Virtual Gastric Band works to update your most powerful software, your mind ! to think and feel differently about food. By using Hypnosis we can access the subconscious mind where all your patterns and behaviors are stored, when we have access we can then change those old outdated patterns and beliefs about food and replace them with more beneficial and positive ones.
The Virtual Gastric Band is not a group program, nor is it a 500 calorie diet based off the HCG diet. The HCG diet is a 500 calorie diet, comprising of hot water and lemon in the am (not a bad idea and lots of articles pertaining to its detoxifying benefits) 100 grams of protein with vegetables (above the ground) for lunch and the same for dinner., water and grissini sticks. It is separated in to 3 phases, loading, weight loss and maintenance . You weigh daily and there's no exercise. This is not a new diet and it was originally developed by a Doctor around 1950's.
Anyone will lose weight on a 500 calorie diet if they stay on it long enough and I have seen a lot of clients who have tried it only to lose the weight and put it on again. I had a client who lost 40 kg and put 50 kg back on or as he said "with interest" If you are about to try this way, please discuss it with your GP or a dietitian. The Virtual Gastric Band is based around 3 small meals, no special meals, no calorie counting, we look to change the way you think about food. All sessions are one to one and therefore tailored to the individual. To book use the above booking tab
How does is work
The program consists of four, one on on sessions. The initial session is 60 min in duration, the following three are all around 30 minutes long. You will receive a set of guidelines to follow and a download that you listen to each day, this will reinforce everything that we cover in the sessions, you will then receive another download at the end of the program, this will assist you to continue with your weight loss. The program is not a diet ! When you think about it any diet will work....if you stay on them ! That's the hard part as they are not sustainable, it doesn't matter which one you choose, they are all the same and will all work while you remain on them and usually, when the wedding is over or you get into that dress, you revert to old eating patterns.
The Gastric Band looks at retraining your mind, so that you eat when you are hungry and when you aren't you won't. It is not restrictive, nor does it require special meals. It is designed to be sustainable and easy, it just requires making small changes each day.
Cost is currently $650, payable in full at the first session. All sessions must be taken within a two month period. Some health funds do cover Hypnotherapy, you would need to contact yours if applicable to you.
Cost for the Gastric Band will increase 1st May 2021, all bookings made on or after this date will be charged the increased amount.
Results can vary from person to person, the above is for information purposes only and not a replacement for any medical advise or diagnosis.
