The Virtual Gastric Band is a remarkable weight loss programme that can help you as it successfully harnesses the power that you hold within yourself to make changes to your life. It is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to:

Retrain your mind to be satisfied with smaller portions of food.
Change your attitude towards food and helps you regain control over cravings and bad habits.
Enable weight to be lost naturally and consistently without dieting.
Increase your willpower.
Remove the need to deprive yourself of food you enjoy.
Increase your physical and mental wellbeing.
The VGB therapy involves 4 sessions at approximately weekly intervals plus a final follow up session around 4 to 6 weeks after the 4th session. You are also provided with an audio file to reinforce what has been achieved during the sessions. After the four weeks there should be a permanent change in the way you think about food. This is not a diet, you do not have to deny yourself any particular food, you simply gain greater natural control over your portions and choices. VGB allows you to change your habits so you don’t encounter the destructive ‘yo-yoing’ associated with dieting.

As with all therapies and treatments there are no guarantees, however, people have lost various amounts of weight ranging from 1lb (450g) to 7lbs (c.3kg) in the first week only. Of course you have to put effort into the process to help you achieve your goals but bear in mind that a weight loss of just 1lb per week, which may feel slow, adds up to 3 and a half stone (c.22kg) over the course of a year.
