Virtual Gastric Band Surgery

           Learn to eat anything you want and feel hunger and fullness naturally


What they are saying: 


"The virtual Gastric Band is amazing!  With a little effort and dedication on my part, it couldn't have been easier.  To date (5 weeks) I have eliminated 12 pounds but more importantly, I have seen my body change for the better.  I have lost inches and I have more muscle tone.  I've tried many diets but they always failed because I was terrorized by the things I "couldn"t" have.  This is not a diet in the classic sense.  You can eat whatever you want but you eat a lot less.  The change that takes place is that you choose what you eat more wisely.  The first evening after the first hypnosis session, I could only eat 1/3 of my dinner.  I was truly stuffed!  Over time, you learn what portions you need.  You also learn to listen to your body and understand the "comfortable" feeling.

As an added bonus, you also get a new confident feeling about yourself that is not tied to your body.  You realize how powerful your MIND really is!  Thanks Bob!"

"I spent seven weeks on a tough exercise program with a personal trainer and I did not have one pound of weight reduction.  I am down ten pounds in two week after starting the VGB.  Ten pounds, and very happy."


"I have eliminated 35 pounds since November.  People are taking me more seriously now."


"I have not lost any weight, but my body shape has changed a lot and I feels so much better. It is not about weight, it is about how healthy I am and how good I feel". 


"This is truly amazing. I have struggled with weight for years. Finally, I find I am putting the fork down between bits and I am eating one-third of my unusual amount of food. I feel totally satisfied."


"I could never have believed the power of the mind could actually control my eating habits. There is no deprivation involved."


"My old habit of putting the kids to bed and opening a bottle of wine and inhaling a bag of chips is no more. I am automatically satisfied on much smaller amounts of food."


"I have lost an inch around my waist and my old habit of going back for seconds is a thing of the past."


"After 22 years of struggling to lose that excess belly fat, I can finally feel my hip bones! Wow!"  


"With this program, I am no longer interested in my old habit - constant snacking."


"I like the fact that I can go back and review at no additional cost." 


Sheila Granger

The Virtual Gastric Band


The Virtual Gastric Band is a remarkable weight loss program, and one which Sheila Granger has pioneered in the UK. As the name suggests, the system utilizes the concept of a “virtual” gastric band and clinical hypnotherapy. It successfully harnesses the power that every individual holds within them to make changes to their lives. Many clients have benefited from The Virtual Gastric Band therapy

Sheila Granger is a lifestyle engineer.  She has perfected this technique of using hypnosis and the concept of Gastric Band Surgery to bring about weight control and lifestyle changes quickly and easily.

So, what is it?   

It is not a diet.    It is not surgery.

The Virtual Gastric Band is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain you to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food. It changes how you think about food and gives very safe, very predictable results.

The clinical hypnotherapy convinces the brain that the stomach is full after a certain level of intake, and that there is no need for more food.

It is most definitely NOT a diet - we know that diets only work in the short term. The Virtual Gastric Band allows you to eat what you want, but will enable you to intake smaller portions. And, because it’s not a diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry, the issues which cause diets to fail. As The Virtual Gastric Band effectively negates these issues, you are left with a long term solution to your weight problems.

The medical procedure reduces the physical size of the stomach, and may achieve the same result, but The Virtual Gastric Band can be undertaken quickly and privately, without the lengthy delay of hospital waiting lists, and of course carries no costly invasive surgery, no risks and no on-going medical treatment.

 Here is a short news clip about this process of virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis.


When you have a sensation of being full you stop eating.   Portion Control driven by the natural mechanisms in the body allows one to select any food you want to eat, but to eat small portions of that food and feel satisfied with the amount you have eat.   The "thermostat" gets reset and eating is enjoyable not automatic anymore.   It is easy to achieve this new lifestyle.
