What is a Virtual Gastric Band Program?

The Virtual Gastric Band program is not a diet. We all know that diets only work in the short term, and that once the diet is stopped, any weight that was lost whilst on the diet quickly returns.

Sheila Granger’s Virtual Gastric Band Program uses hypnosis to condition the sub-conscious mind into believing that a band has been placed around the top portion of the stomach in order to create a small stomach pouch thus reducing the amount of food that one needs to eat in order to feel satisfied. And, because it’s not a diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry, which are the issues that usually cause diets to fail.

How does it work?
virtual gastric bandingThe hypnotherapy process retrains the mind to become satisfied with much smaller food portion sizes, so there is no need for more food. It changes the way you think about food making it easier to achieve your ideal body weight. The Virtual Gastric Band provides the benefits of weight loss surgery, but without the risk of an invasive operation, and without the expensive medical costs of a physical operation..

The Virtual Gastric Band is for people who are aware they overeat. The Virtual Gastric Band is available at a fraction of the cost of real surgery and has comparable results. It is very safe, has no side effects, does not involve the use of drugs, it is completely painless, and there is no need to take time off from work in order to recover.

Sheila Granger has conducted a free trial for 25 people and found that it was positive for 24 of the 25 people. After 3 sessions Sheila was astounded to record that they had lost over 14 stones between them in only three weeks. All but one reported a change in their eating habits.


What the program involves:

The Virtual Gastric Band program involves 4 sessions, each a week apart. In the first session, we ask you to record your starting weight, and take measurements so that we have a starting point. Our program is not just about weight, it is about shape and size, hence the reason we also focus on measurements. We go through the rules of the program with you, and you receive the first of two support CDs. We then insert The Virtual Gastric Band hypnotically in the first session. Following the first session, portion sizes are reduced accordingly, thereby leading to the weight loss

In the second session, we record your weight loss for the week, and we ensure that you have been correctly following the rules of the program without any problems. In the second session we hypnotically reinforce what was achieved in the first session, and address any issues that need to be addressed.

In the third session, we once again check to ensure that some more weight loss has been achieved, and we do some release work hypnotically, so if you are having any issues with certain foods or habits we can address those issues with the release work that we do hypnotically in the third session.

By the fourth session, you should have formed a good solid base, and the rules of the program will become habitual to you. We check in on your weight loss and measurements again, so that we can see not only how many kilo’s you have lost, but also how many centimetres you have lost. At this point you receive your second support CD, and you will be given your progress report card so that you can continue on, tracking your own weight loss going forward. We wrap the program up hypnotically and you continue on losing the weight on your own with the tools you have gained over the four sessions.

By this stage, you won’t need us to continue achieving weight loss, as you will have gained the tools and formed the correct habits to continue losing weight on your own.

However if at any point in the future you find that you do need some additional support, we will be there to help keep you on track.

As well as the four sessions, we also provide two support CD’s for you. The CD’s are hypnotic sessions in themselves and they run for approximately 15 minutes each. You will need to listen to one of the CD’s each day throughout the program.

The sessions are held on a one to one basis. They are not group sessions. The first session runs for approximately two hours and sessions 2, 3 and 4 run for approximately 60 minutes each.
