Why am I dieting but not losing weight and why does the weight come back?
I cant remember how many times I’ve heard someone say “Oh…I’ve lost 20 or 30 pounds with the “Insert latest diet fad here” but the weight keeps coming back”. There are numerous reasons for this but the #1 reason is that as soon as you are off of your diet, you go back to your old eating habits and guess what happens?
Most diets deal with eating certain foods and abstaining from other others or taking pills, injections, etc… The person on the diet feels like they are being punished and since they are all on a diet, all they think about all day is food. “What can I eat? What can’t I eat? Why am I craving what I can’t eat?”
Imagine a program where you are rewarding yourself with all of the foods that you love but you are still losing weight. How is this possible?
Introducing “The Virtual Gastric Band”.
To explain the concept of this program, imagine owning a house with a basement that fills with water every few months. You have the water pumped out but a few months later the water returns again, so you need to to pump it out yet again. This cycle continues year after year… This is how diets work. You lose weight on the diet but the moment that you stop dieting…the water returns….the weight returns….
The Virtual Gastric Band program was designed to find out why the “water is flooding the basement” and stop it from coming back in. Not only do we deal with the amounts of food that you eat but why we eat. Let me explain…
Everything that we have heard, seen and experienced in our lifetimes, good and bad, has had an effect on our thinking. “Eat everything on your plate”, “There are Children Starving in China so you should feel guilty about unless you clear the plate”. We have been taught from infancy that food is the cure all for our problems. When a mother hears her baby crying, she checks the diaper and then feeds the baby, even if it isn’t hungry. So from childhood we are taught that food is the answer to all emotions.
Our program is two fold. First we reward our clients with eating the amount of food necessary to be full but to stop eating when they are aware of being full. We uses hypnosis and suggestions to consciously and subconsciously make them aware of when they are full, and they stop eating when they are. The Virtual Gastric Band program conditions them to be aware of when they are full by placing suggestions in the subconscious that a gastric band has been inserted around the top part of the stomach so they full fuller faster. But our program goes beyond the band technique because we realize that food is consumed for many reasons other than hunger such as:
Our program deals with with their emotions and directly and gives them the tools to deal with these situations without food. The goal of this program is simple, yet very effective.
“Food consumption is fuel and only used for fuel”
You can enjoy all of the foods that you love but will only eat portions necessary to fuel your body. Also, food is not the answer for your emotions and we will make you aware of all of the emotions and how to deal with them in the proper manner.
The first session is the introductory session explaining what we do and asking as well as answering all questions about our program. There are 6 sessions and each is designed to address the specific needs and issues that are pertinent to each client. In other words, it is NOT a cookie cutter program. It is tailored to each and every client’s needs and circumstances. We welcome as much feedback as possible from our clients so that we can address all of their personal needs in order to allow for faster results.
Did I mention that you can eat whatever food that you want? There is no dieting involved in this program.
