I Don't Want To Be the Fat Bridesmaid

Sally came to me three months before her best friend's wedding. She had been invited to be a bridesmaid, as had two other friends. One of the friends was very overweight, at least five stones or 70 pounds on the heavy side. Sally wanted to lose two stones or 28 pounds to look her best for the big day. She did not want to be the "fat bridesmaid" in her best friend's wedding photos.

Both girls met me when I had an exhibition stand about Gastric Band Hypnosis, or Virtual Gastric Band. I explained that this is safe and relaxing. We pretend that the person is having an operation to fit a gastric band at the opening of their stomach to restrict the amount of food they will eat and the power of their subconscious mind makes the experience real, giving all the benefits without any of the pain, discomfort, time off work and large investment of money.

Gastric band operations are quite common procedures now but there are always risks of undergoing general anaesthetic and ensuing stitches, scar tissue, even burst bands can pose problems. The operation's true cost is around £10,000 but available free on the NHS within the UK providing the patient qualifies by being sufficiently overweight with a high enough BMI. Sally was only two stones overweight so would not have qualified. The average cost in the USA is currently $25,000.

Gastric Band Hypnosis is completely safe, deeply relaxing and available in the comfort of your own home via the technology of hypnosis over Skype. Wherever you are in the world, I can help you. My current fee for the programme is £500, considerably cheaper than £10,000 or $25,000 for an operation which will cause discomfort and time off work at the very least.

Sally's friend chose not to book this programme. She muttered something about the price as she fiddled with her BMW key fob.

Sally did book the programme. From the first session, she noticed the difference in her eating patterns, as did her family and colleagues. She wasn't hungry and she found it easy to lose the weight - all two stones in time for the wedding. She wasn't the "fat bridesmaid" but we know who was.

No Need for NHS To Spend On 50,000 Gastric Band Operations a Year

A thousand people a week should have anti-obesity surgery on the NHS, experts are urging.

There are currently around 6,000 gastric band and gastric bypass operations a year. But a study wants it raised to 50,000 as Britain struggles with an obesity epidemic.


Each operation costs the NHS £2,588 but the benefit to the NHS is between £2,000 and £4,000 a year as patients need fewer obesity-related treatments. So that seems a good return on investment. However, each patient costs the NHS time in consultations before and after the operation plus there is lost working time for the patient and the risk that something will go wrong. A dear friend of mine recently died totally unexpectedly in a routine back operation.

I help people achieve all the benefits of gastric band surgery without undergoing surgery. How? With gastric band hypnosis. Virtual surgery if you like. The subconscious mind relaxes and the body thinks it has had gastric band surgery. I know, that sounds crazy which is exactly what I thought until I looked into it and found the remarkable success rates that have been achieved over the last few years. I decided to add this area of hypnosis to my existing training and am delighted to say that I have helped hundreds of people. My most dramatic result is a 32 year old lady who lost 7 stone, that is 98 pounds or 45 kg. She had actually been turned down for gastric band surgery on the NHS as her BMI was not high enough! In effect, her doctor told her to put on more weight just to qualify for the operation. Shocking. She came to me in tears and together we changed her life.

Gastric Band Hypnosis is a course of four sessions of deeply relaxing hypnosis with a back-up CD for the current fee of just £450, far lower than the NHS is paying for each op and clogging up surgical theatres which could be used for other types of operations.

My Gastric Band Hypnosis is available over Skype anywhere in the world in the comfort of your own home so it is ideal if you are self-conscious about going out. We deal with your psychological issues and don't just treat you as a lump of blubber. You are a person who eats too much and we need to find out why to help you to change your eating habits. You're not a number with a five minute appointment. I will listen to you and help you overcome the problem with your eating habits once and for all in a safe and relaxing way without any potential side-effects.
