Virtual Gastric Band
Virtual Gastric Band
What if you could have the benefits of weight loss surgery without the invasive operation, expensive medical costs or lengthy recovery period?
Well, now you can.
It’s called the Virtual Gastric Band.
While gastric band surgery was developed for the morbidly obese, the virtual gastric band procedure is effective—if you’re morbidly obese— or if you’re only several kilograms overweight but you’re tired of the weight struggle.
The virtual gastric band provides the positive benefits of surgery, with comparable results, and none of the risks.
It’s ideal if you’d like to lose weight and either don’t want—or don’t qualify for —physical surgery.
You’re smart enough to recognise that if you could untangle you weight challenge alone, you’d have done so by now.
With the virtual gastric band, there are no specific weight or BMI requirements to qualify. It’s for you if you’re looking to improve your health through weight loss. Maybe you’re already struggling with weight-related health issues or, you know that if you don’t change, you soon will be.
The operation in the mind
The virtual gastric band is a procedure that uses the power of hypnosis, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) to convince your unconscious mind that a silicone band has been fitted around the top part of your stomach.
Because your unconscious mind believes your stomach has a smaller capacity, you start to feel satisfied with smaller amounts of food. And you feel fuller for longer.
Clients say things like:
– I used to obsess about food but I don’t even think about food now unless I’m hungry
– I’m enjoying craving healthier foods
– The ‘new me’ eats to live, the ‘old me’ lived to eat
Since the changes occur in your unconscious mind, the procedure rewires your relationship with food, and over eating and bingeing cease.

Generally though, clients report eating less, making healthier food choices, and feeling more motivated to move their body.
The VGB is often shown like this:
But I prefer to think about it more like this:
What does the programme look like?
The programme consists of four hypnotherapy sessions, tailored to your specific goals and individual needs.
The band is hypnotically installed in the first session, and the three remaining sessions are usually within a four to six-week period.
During this time you’ll be positively encouraged to follow some simple guidelines and you’ll be given two personalised audios to assist you in your journey to the slimmer, fitter, healthier you.
Say good bye to diet hell, forever
Just so we’re clear, the virtual gastric band is a lifestyle change. It’s not a diet. We all know that diets work — but only in the short term. And they’re joyless and depriving. Arrgh!
Instead, this is a natural, organic process where your unconscious mind naturally starts to make healthier choices.
Because it’s not a diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry. Or, any of the many other issues that cause diets to fail.
Best of all, the programme opens you up to loving and accepting your body. Women are heavily objectified, scrutinised and trivialised in the media—much more so than men. As a result, many of us have internalised a sense of body shame or a feeling of ‘not quite measuring up’. This programme guides you to love, accept and nourish your wise and miraculous body.
So, if you’ve got weight-related health concerns (diabetes ii), or if you’ve tried every diet under the sun and gained all the weight back, the VGB might be exactly what you’ve been looking for to help you take back control of your weight.
Sheila Granger’s Virtual Gastric Band
The Virtual Gastric Band is a remarkable weight loss programme pioneered by Sheila Granger in the United Kingdom.
Sheila conducted a free trial for 25 people and found it to be positive for 24 of the 25 people. Total weight loss was an impressive 190 lb (419 kg) in five weeks. A general practitioner in East Yorkshire, UK, arranged for a second trial to be conducted for 12 of his patients who had been removed from the weight loss surgery list on the UK’s National Health Services waiting list. Again 95% of the group experienced a positive result.
Having trained with Sheila, I’m thrilled to offer the programme to clients face-to-face in Auckland, New Zealand. Or, for the good folk abroad or living in regional NZ, I provide sessions via Skype, with the same happy outcome.
