Most people who follow a traditional dieting system will lose weight whilst they are on that diet. But, as soon as the diet stops, the weight invariably returns, often leaving them heavier than before the diet began! It is estimated that 95 percent 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 will find themselves thinking about food more than 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. 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 thus clients are liberated from having to think about food all the time; they eat consciously, and are able to listen to what their stomachs are telling them. The result is steady, progressive weight loss - without dieting.
The Virtual Gastric Band Programme is conducted over a four-week period. The four one-hour sessions are designed to bring about a permanent change in your eating habits, and focus on you want to be. This is not a short-term fix. Creating new habits to get you to where you want to be, and enable you to remain there will generally take 28 days. The Programme is personalised and includes a support CD which will reinforce the new messages that will bring about the permanent change in your eating behaviour.
