Imagining yourself or referring to yourself as FAT helps create a self-fulfilling prophecy!
For example, your intellect knows that being overweight is dangerous to your health. But if every day you look in the mirror and imagine, “I’m getting fat, fat, fat”, repetitively saying that to yourself even when you were thinner, then your subconscious will incorporate that belief and act on it. You will get fat even though you would rather be thin. Like when you are offered that huge piece of chocolate cake from a “friend”, you might feel a little peer pressure… then say to yourself, “Oh, what the heck, I’m fat. I’ll start my diet tomorrow”. Sound familiar? Then you’ll continue to stuff those uncomfortable, guilty feelings afterward with more unconscious eating. Thus, the vicious cycle repeats. And you can never get enough of what you really don’t want!
Diets and herbs are not the answer
Hopefully by now you realize that “dieting” or tweaking your metabolism with herbs or drugs don’t work in the long run either! That just puts your body into survival mode, and you end up in a hostile relationship with your body. And what usually happens? Eventually all the weight comes back, plus some…! Then it becomes more difficult to release your weight later because to your body FAT=PROTECTION=SURVIVAL.
Your body is not the enemy
Inactivity coupled with eating too many fatty foods and refined carbohydrates is the problem! We are a culture of spectators living in a toxic food environment that panders to the weaknesses of the overweight majority. Your body has no choice but to digest and assimilate whatever you put into it. You already know that eating healthy is a must. Healthy eating means you get all the protein, fibre, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to trust you enough to release your extra, stored-up fat. Healthy eating means you’ll have more than enough ENERGY for moderate exercise without having to buy vitamin supplements, shakes or glorified candy bars. I can help you stay with any eating strategy (healthy carbs, healthy fats, healthy proteins, etc.) of your choice, as long as you have one and wish to stick with it. Exercise and activity is a must, too. Experts agree: thinness is a lifestyle!
Deal with your mind first
The most important thing about the virtual gastric band in comparison to the actual gastric band is that the virtual version deals with the issues in a person’s mind and their relationship with food. Having a foreign body inside your stomach simply does not deal with psychological factors.
A surgical patient can still over eat and burst the band, plus they have to eat a pureed diet. With the virtual band, if they find they are eating too much, it can be tightened under hypnosis, there is no invasive surgery and they are treating the psychological problems not just the physical.
