Holiday Weight Loss without sacrifice

christmas-89Weight loss can be very difficult during the holiday season and many of us simply decide to deal with the weight gain and take it all off in January.  We all look forward to the delicious cookies, pies, eggnog and hot chocolate that accompany our holiday festivities but quickly  add pounds to our waistlines.  We all look forward to Thanksgiving and amazing turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes that leave us completely incapacitated for the remainder of the day as we lie on the couch in a carbohydrate coma after finishing off our meal with some homemade pumpkin pie.

So how do we enjoy the holidays without putting on extra weight?

You can certainly diet during the holidays and try as hard as you can to avoid the fat or carbs (depending on which diet is popular this year) and just say no to the amazing cookies, pies and homemade treats that we grew up with and remind us of holidays past.  But diet is such an ugly word… Diet means SACRIFICE and doing without.  How can you possibly enjoy the holidays if you can’t eat the things that brought you so much joy?  As it is well documented at this point, diets simply don’t work.  You lose the weight temporarily only to gain it back again later.  You can visit a weight loss clinic that will put on a very low calorie diet and tell you to eliminate fat or carbs while prescribing dangerous medication that will offer short term results, but this is STILL JUST A DIET that involves sacrifice and short term results.

How about working out?

It’s basic math, right?  If you burn more than you lose then you will absolutely lose weight.  If you build muscle during your workout, then the muscle is going to work around the clock and keep burning fat.  Now we are on to something!  We certainly can’t dispute that working out is a great way to lose weight.  It also helps to eliminate stress, help you to sleep better and offers a myriad of NATURAL health benefits that provide quality of life, energy and most of all, weight loss.  But there’s a catch!  There is always a catch, right?


You need to spend time in the gym and most of us simply don’t have the luxury of spending an hour per day in the gym due to our hectic lifestyles, and if you do….kudos to you!  The time that it takes to drive to the gym and spend an hour building muscle and hitting the treadmill simply isn’t sufficient for most of us to do on a daily basis.  So what is the answer to losing weight without sacrifice and without spending an hour per day at the gym?  How can I possibly enjoy the holiday foods and maintain my weight or lose weight without all of the sacrifice of my time and taste buds?

Virtual Lap Band and Whole Body Vibration Machines

The virtual lap band helps you to subconsciously think that you have a smaller stomach and and helps you to become fuller faster.  You will actually stop eating when you are full and not continue to ingest copious amounts of food because it’s on your plate.  The best thing about this program is that you can eat whatever you want, you are simply going to eat less of it.  The virtual lap band program uses hypnosis to help you to lose weight naturally with no pills, no surgery and NO DIETING.  Our clients are reporting weight loss of 10 to 20 pounds in their first month WITHOUT SACRIFICE.  The program is an 8 week program that requires 2 hours for your first visit and 1 hour per visit after that.


  • The other key ingredient is working out without sacrificing the hour per day at the gym.  How can you receive the same benefits of a one hour workout without actually working out?  The answer….Whole Body Vibration.  The whole body vibration program give you the same benefits as a one hour workout in only 10 minutes!  Whole Body Vibration machines offer a laundry list of benefits including:


  •  Improve circulation and blood oxygenation
  • Decreased diastolic blood pressure
  • Reduces back pain and stiffness
  • Increases muscle strength, flexibility, mobility and coordination
  • Improves cellulite reduction
  • Improves collagen production as well as bone strength and density
  • Boosts levels of testosterone and natural HGH
  • Decreases levels of cortisol (hormone produced under stress and adds weight)
  • Extremely effective body fat combustion


The list of natural benefits from whole body vibration goes on and on but the greatest benefit is that you only need 10 minutes per day to lose weight and create a healthier body.  And please keep in mind that these are the units that cost thousands of dollars at the mall.  Our stand up units are priced under $600 and include a session with our staff as well as a video that will show you an effective 10 minute workout that will provide greater benefits than a one hour workout in the gym.

So, to wrap it up…. If you really want to lose weight without dieting and without spending 7 hours per week in a gym, the virtual lap band plus the whole body vibration is for you.

Just one hour per week and 10 minutes per day for a healthy holiday weight loss and eat whatever you like!

And remember, this is not a diet.  This is a permanent lifestyle change.  This is not a fad or a machine being pushed by a fitness celebrity that’s going to end up in your garage.  Just 10 minutes per day and 1 hour per week for 8 week can change your life and certainly make the holidays a much more pleasurable experience.
