Virtual Hypnotic Gastric Band Procedure…

Why would you choose the ‘Hypnotic Gastric Banding’ method over the ‘Surgical Gastric Banding’ to have your stomach shrunk? Simply because you can achieve the same, if not better, results without having to risk having surgery and going under the knife. You can be the shape and size that you want to be. Weight loss is very challenging and there are many drastic diets and exercise programs that people try over and over again….going from one diet to the next feeling disillusioned and disappointed from repeated diet failure. The Virtual Gastric Band, VGB for short, is not a diet. It is a powerful weight loss hypnosis program created to help maintain a healthy lifestyle. As, you may know the gastric band is a physical band that is fitted to the top region of the stomach which restricts the amount of food you can eat, making you feel fuller quicker…..but after having this surgery there is nothing to stop the types of foods you eat and you can fill up on chocolate, takeaways, biscuits and sweets. A hypnotic gastric band changes what you eat by gradually changing your attitude towards food, in a non-invasive, inexpensive and risk free way. It reprograms your brain to eat treats in moderation, to control the size of the meals you eat, drink more water, to make healthy food choices along with some daily exercise. It is designed to create a permanent positive change in your eating habits, getting you to where you want to be, easily, safely, naturally without feeling deprived, providing a long-term solution for weight loss. Hypnosis is a deep relaxation natural method and when used for weight loss you would focus on exercises to retrain your brain to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food…which then sets you up to shed weight effortlessly and to improve many areas of your life. By taking people through this effective weight loss hypnotherapy method it can successfully change a person’s attitude towards food and help them to regain control over their cravings and bad habits around food. It unlocks the power you already have to make a positive change in your life and to then be able to visualize what you want.

We need to eat as it is a survival requirement but it is how we eat and why we eat the way we do that needs to be looked at. It is not only food that is the problem it is the emotional demands behind the reasons that cause us to overeat. Unless these emotional drivers are looked at and resolved the undesired eating habits will resurface time and time again.   Ask yourself this question…What will you gain from losing weight?   How will you feel when you have achieved your weight loss goal, what does it mean to you and how will your life be different. Knowing 'why' you want something and having a clear vision of the outcome will mean to you, makes it easier to keep on track, when you hot a hard patch. If your 'why' is big enough it is easier to focus on the 'how' you do it. If you take a few seconds to think ahead before you eat as to how you will feel when you are finished. Ask yourself, will eating this food make me feel good? This can help you to make a more helpful and healthy choice….and to not react from a snap decision of eating whatever is convenient, making excuses that it won't matter just this once.  Often we over eat to comfort ourselves, to feel better, to beat boredom. To swallow down emotions so they don’t surface and holding back feelings we’re afraid to feel. We contain the fear of failure, anger, disappointment, frustration, sadness. You have to behave, think and act like the person you want to be to shift the mental and emotional habits to support what you want. Instead of reaching out to chocolate, biscuits, pizza and the like when you’ve been upset, stressed or overwhelmed. When it becomes our go-to strategy for dealing with emotional distress, the consequences for our physical and mental health can be devastating. Psychologically comfort eating doesn’t do what we imagine it will in helping us to cope with life’s difficulties. Instead, it can make us feel worse with numerous negative feelings of guilt, shame, futility, disappointment, worthless, ugly, weak …so that buzz you might feel from the mouthfuls of food is not worth the emotional price that goes with it. A major cause of weight gain is sugar, it is a dense food which means you can eat a lot of it even with a smaller stomach. To eat a very large meal and then eat another large meal would make you feel very uncomfortable, but you can always manage to fit in a sugary dessert even if you are quite full as sugary foods go into your bloodstream straight away and so take up less space in your stomach – allowing you to eat more even with a medical gastric band. Unlike hypnotic gastric banding, surgery gastric band fails to address cravings. When you eat sugar, your body is looking for nutrition, and because it is not getting any it will keep looking for some and encouraging you to keep eating. Even with gastric banding it is possible to eat quite large amounts of chocolate and cakes and this is a major problem. It is essential that you eat real and proper food to get the essential nutrients you need.  People can learn after banding that if they eat very slowly, they can eat more and take in large amounts of calories. Also, they might live on smoothies and juices and the high sugar content in some of these continually raises their insulin levels leaving them more prone to fat storing. If you want your body to become a fat burning machine you need to avoid refined sugar and starch like bread, pasta and pastry. Starch turns to sugar really quickly. Your body can only store fat if insulin is present and insulin is present in the body when you have eaten carbohydrates therefore the most effective way to become slimmer and maintain a slim body is to cut back starch and sugar. Eat foods like meat, fish, poultry, eggs, fruit and vegetables. You don’t need to limit quantity as your body cannot store fat if no carbs are present. A gastric band can discourage you from eating the very foods that burn fat and encourage you to eat the foods that make your body store fat, so that is why it is very important to have the right attitude and mindset to help keep you on track to achieve the outcome you want.   Are you addicted to junk food? You crave junk food and can’t stop at one biscuit, that you go back for another…and another….until you finish the whole packet. Do you feel powerless around sugary treats or maybe its salty snacks that are your downfall? You say to yourself I just don’t have the willpower to overcome the addiction to junk food. Do you feel like no matter how many diets you try; you can’t stick to them? You might go weeks, months following a strict eating pattern and then suddenly you give into your cravings and your right back where you started. It is a huge disappointment and let down to yourself, feeling like a failure and beating yourself up. You can continually repeat this cycle unless you have dealt with and faced the reasons that you reach for food. Willpower alone is not enough, it also takes looking at the pictures you create in your mind, the thoughts and words you say to yourself, the beliefs you have around what you are eating. So many of us attach our sense of self-worth to our weight, shape, and size. Looking at false images of perfection in magazines and on social media feeds the idea that we need to look a certain way to be attractive and to feel good about ourselves. We can then end up in a vicious cycle of starving ourselves, punishing our bodies for not looking like those airbrushed images that we see everywhere. Then we step on the scales and don’t see the weight loss we hoped for, and then feel like we have failed. So, then we comfort eat, our emotions drive our eating habits and all those sugary, high fat snacks are the ultimate comfort food. We overeat, then we feel bad about ourselves and then the cycle starts all over again, this is learned behaviour and this means you can learn a new behaviour and change your patterns. You can have a healthy relationship with food and your body. Become aware of what you are eating and drinking in a day by keeping a food diary and write down what you have eaten. Also record things like what time of the day it was, who you were with, what physical daily exercise you done even if it was only for a few minutes. Note your thoughts and feelings around your impulses to eat and the emotions that you experienced. This will help you to identify what emotions you are responding to when choosing food so that you become consciously aware of the choices you are making. This awareness of how you respond to food and what the void is in your life that the food is filling. This helps you to find other ways of satisfying theses needs that is not food related...it is helpful in cutting down your need to reach for all those snacks during the day. When it is an ingrained habit of reaching for food you are not aware of just how much you are eating in a day. Be honest with yourself and even if you had a tough day still record it in your diary. No matter how powerless you feel you can change it and be the shape and size that you want to be. The Hypnotic Gastric Band procedure works on the whole body, your mind, emotions, feelings, your self-worth and belief in yourself and is incredibly powerful about creating the change that you want. You can enjoy a healthy relationship with food and your body. Be totally honest with yourself and identify the connection between your emotions and your food choices and behaviours. Develop healthy patterns to get your mind and body working together to overcome comfort eating. Eating to soothe our emotions is very much a human thing to do. Try to be mindful of what and when you are eating, start slowly making changes, avoid self-judgement as you try out a new way and give yourself self-love, prioritizing sleep and eating regular small meals is a simple way to tackle the issue. The more ownership you take over your health and the food you eat, the more likely you’ll be able to make lasting change. You can be the shape and size you want to be, what you choose to be. Everyone is a different body shape and size…it’s about accepting the diversity of body shapes, it’s about enjoying foods and not being fearful of them – it’s a psychological approach to food, rather than counting calories. Hypnotic Gastric Banding is a safer non evasive long term option by addressing the main issues that caused the overeating helping you get to the root cause of why you put on weight in the first place – providing the fast results of surgery without the risk, setting you up for long-term success. It encourages you to eat less and to feel full quickly now that you have a small, tiny, shrunken stomach, eating less as you become slimmer. It conditions you to only want to eat real and nutritious food while becoming indifferent to and disinterested in sugar and junk food. It is a four session hypnosis program requiring no time off work, no special pre-treatment diet, no shakes, no formulas, no pills, no potions and another plus with today’s technology the sessions can be conducted from the comfort of your own home or office via Zoom or Skype video link….in comparison the surgery would require time in hospital and at least two to three weeks recovery with no strenuous activity, including driving.   Obesity News Today in their writings say that “Gastric Bypass Surgery does not provoke weight loss on its own, but helps patients achieve weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and regular physical activity.” The problem with this is, if the patients were able to successfully diet and exercise to achieve their weight loss goal, then they wouldn’t require the surgery at all! Virtual Gastric Band therapy not only provides fast results without the surgical risks, but it also helps you get to the root cause of why you put on weight in the first place. It is helpful in supporting people of all shapes and sizes to look after themselves in a healthy and sustainable way, which sets them up for long-term successful results. If you’re contemplating surgery for weight loss, I urge you to seriously consider Virtual Gastric Banding. Success rates using hypnosis after a through consultation for weight loss issues are high at 85 to 100% and can also help with any other correlating issues such as stress, addictions, past trauma or maybe it’s you don’t have time just for you, that your life is on one continuous treadmill….whatever the underlying cause is it can be helped with hypnosis. I’m happy to answer any questions you may have regarding this process. Book a free, 15 minute no-obligation advisory session. www.karensydne.com
