Virtual Gastric Band Rules

  • Buy Something New

The law of concentrated attention very powerful psychological concept.
If there is something in life that you really want, and you behave in a way that you already have it – and you are very likely to actually get it.

Buy an item of clothing in the size that you want to be.
It has to be something brand new and NOT something that you already have from your past that no longer fits.
It does not have to be anything expensive.
When you get it, hang it on the OUTSIDE of your wardrobe in a place where you will see it often.

  • There are 4 separate Virtual Gastric Band recordings.

You will receive one of these each week
(the last one on the last day of this programme)
You need to listen to each one in the correct order – ideally a week apart.
You only need to listen to each one, once.

  • There is an additional daily 15-minute homework recording to listen to.

This will reinforce the main sessions and create new neural pathways in your brain regarding your associations and attitudes towards food. 

  • Eat Mindfully

Slowly and deliberately
Enjoy every mouthful of food, but consciously slow your eating down. 
Chew your food thoroughly (approx 15-20 times a mouthful).
Put your cutlery down between mouthfuls.
Put your sandwich down between mouthfuls!
Do not eat in front of the television or while reading as you will not be conscious of what you are eating.
Sit down, at the table ideally, and focus purely on the food.

  • Take a good multivitamin/mineral

Have a chat with your local pharmacist who can advise what would be best for you.

  • Eat 3 appropriate-sized meals a day.

We would add – add 2 planned healthy snacks in between that, as your portion sizes will probably drastically reduce.

Choose protein first, as you’ll probably need 50-70 grams of protein per day.
Also, don’t be frightened of healthy fats – we have been conditioned to avoid them, but we absolutely need them.

Fill up on leafy vegetables and try to minimise white carbs > they are often the culprit for excess fat rather than fats.

This is so that you get sufficient calories of the right type – and you need to make them count.
Undernourishment is as unhealthy as overnourishment!

Drink at least 3 litres of water a day

If this is a long way from where you are at the moment – steadily increase each day until you get there.

Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day
