The Virtual Gastric Band Programme is conducted over a four week period.
Tuesdays 21st March, 28th March, 4th April and 11th April at 10am via Zoom
(Recordings of each session will be available.)
The four one-hour sessions are designed to bring about a permanent change in your eating habits, and focus on the person you want to be. This is not a short-term fix.
The VGB Programme includes a support recording, which you will listen to every day, and which will reinforce the new messages that will bring about the permanent change in your eating behaviour. Other resources are also made available to support your new behavioural patterns.
Weight Control without dieting
Most people who follow any sort of weight loss dieting system will lose weight whilst on the diet. As soon as the diet “ends” the weight invariably returns, often leading to a further increase in weight beyond the original starting point. It is estimated that 95% of all people who diet experience this cycle.
Most diets involve some form of deprivation or denial; some involve counting calories or points, but all serve to programme the mind to focus on food. This means that when you stop following a diet, you think about food even more than before.
In the denial of your comfort foods, in eating different meals to the rest of your family or friends, three things happen:
The brain fights against it!!
The body fights against it!!
The day to day environment fights against it!!
Each New Year, or new month, or Monday morning you hear people say to themselves, “That’s it! I’m going to stop eating. I’ll just eat this and then I’m on the salad!”
Of course the good intentions quickly lapse and it’s back to square one - and the misery starts again. Because most eating habits are deeply engrained in the subconscious, the outcome is programmed to be the same each time a certain set of circumstances prevail.
Conscious self-denial of something can often increase the desire for that very thing, so eating a little less than we did before – but eating anything we want – can actually lead to weight loss. Cutting out favourite foods completely is virtually impossible for many people, but cutting down on those same foods is achievable and sustainable. Everyone knows that eating less and exercising more will lead to better body-shape, improved fitness and all round health. This in turn leads to reduction in weight related health issues including diabetes, joint pain and digestive issues.
This process involves a Virtual Gastric Band and other mind management techniques, and is not a diet. It enables you to form new habits that you can maintain: there is no deprivation and thus you are liberated from having to think about food all the time; you will learn to eat consciously, and are able to listen to what your stomach is telling you. The result is steady, progressive weight loss – without dieting.
Once we have created a habit of eating mindfully and listening to the stomach, then we can move on to healthier choices of food.
Here's what some past VGB clients have said:
"I have never been able to stick to a 'diet' because I always feel hungry and want more food than I am 'allowed'. This process however, stops me from feeling hungry, and providing I eat consciously, I feel full on much less food." R.W.
"I highly recommend Karen to anyone looking into virtual gastric band therapy. Karen worked diligently with compassion throughout the programme to help change my mindset and habits towards food. I went into this wanting to make a life change and feel I have found exactly that. Since starting the programme, I have lost half a stone with ease and no longer feel the urge to over eat. I am now content and relaxed around food and eat when I am hungry. This is a remarkable position after just four weeks, and I thank Karen for her support in helping me on my weight loss journey."
