Book Description

3 Jan 2013




A Gastric Band is a radical, surgical operation that reduces the available space in the stomach. Paul McKenna's Hypnotic Gastric Band is a psychological procedure that can help to convince the unconscious mind that a gastric band has been fitted, so the body behaves exactly as if it were physically present.


Along with the book, the system contains a hypnosis CD and an instructional DVD to provide complete support for physical and psychological change whilst you lose weight. There's no physical surgery, no scarring and no forbidden foods. Just follow all the instructions and let Paul help you lose weight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing to lose but those unwanted lbs 7 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My husband pre-ordered this for me as I have previously followed Paul McKennas 'I can make you thin' system.

I have to say that I'm normally quite cynical when it comes to these kind of products but after years of dieting and reverting back to my pre-diet weight, I figured why not just give it a try?

I read through the book in a day. Much of the book content is similar to the 'I can make you thin' system as the golden rules still apply. Much of the plan is common sense: Eat consciously, eat when you are hungry, eat until you feel satisfied and then stop! This sounds like such a simple concept, but if it was that simple in real life, we'd all be slim!
This is where the pre-op and gastric band surgery trances come in to play. So far, the trances have been more effective than I ever expected. I genuinely feel as though I can no longer over eat and I'm already having to revise my portion sizes!
I appreciate that it is still early days, so I'll update and re-review this in a few weeks time.

I know I said that I would re-review in a few weeks (and I will properly) but I just wanted to share my first week's results! Not only have I lost just over 7lbs in my first week, but as much as I can almost not believe I'm typing this... It has genuinely seemed utterly effortless!

(3/2/13) Apologies for not re-reviewing at the 4wk mark as I initially intended as I have been busy! I just wanted to share that this system continues to work brilliantly for me.

My weightloss slowed/plateaued a little at the 2/3week point but those weeks, I began to lose inches!
At week 4, I am down by a fabulous 12lbs and a whole dress size and I'm still shrinking!

Long story short...

I didn't think it would work but so far it does, but you have to stick to the rules and listen regularly to the CD.

I'm so pleased with this book and CD. The first time I listened I didn't notice any change but I was so interested to hear what was on the CD that I didn't allow myself to truly relax and let the suggestions work. Second time was completely different - I was able to submit to Paul's suggestions and I can - with complete honesty - tell you that this system works! I listened this morning upon waking. When I sat down to my usual 30g cereal for breakfast instead of wolfing it down in three mouthfuls and wondering what to have next, I adopted Paul's system of eating slowly and consciously and I stopped when I felt full - there was still cereal in my bowl when I'd finished - first time that's ever happened. My evening meal was when I really noticed the effects - after only 7 or 8 mouthfuls I felt full and had a very distinctive discomfort in my stomach like what I would get if I'd eaten too much. There isn't any way that I could continue eating through this feeling!! I'm really thrilled - could this be the system for me? I think so. Can't thank Paul McKenna enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars It actually works!!! 24 Oct 2013
By Kesha82
This book is really great. I've had my 'hypnotic gastric band' fitted of two weeks now and I have already lost a stone. I lost 8lb my first week and this week I lost 6lb. For once, my future in regards to losing weight and becoming healthy, is finally looking bright and I look forward to the coming weeks. I am not saying it will work for everyone but I am one of the lucky ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the way it makes you feel too 29 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've had this installed for almost 2 weeks now and have lost 9.5 pounds. I love the way it makes you feel too, loads of energy and its really weird but you really do steer away from unhealthy foods without realising it... I used to eat Chocolate every day, I can't touch it now it makes me feel sick! Crisps I could easily eat 4 packets a day, I have eaten 3 packets in 2 weeks.... I cannot recommend this enough...

5.0 out of 5 stars hynotic band 25 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book after seeing Paul McKenna on Loose Women i was slightly sceptical if it was just a waste of time and money but after being overweight now for many years and trying every diet, what have i got to lose. I read the book in around an hour then spent days before i decided to go and find a quiet space and time to do the trance. i lay down on the bed closed my eyes and listened to the CD i then not sure if i had be put in a trance or not as i felt just the same as i did when i started. i went and weighed myself and spoke to the family and told them that eating times will be conducted a little different as directed by Paul McKenna. Today is day 5 and i can honestly say i have not yet finished a plate of food or even a full cut of coffee. i have slowed down my eating and making sure i eat every mouthfull chewing 20 times. after a few mouthfulls i get a a sort of tummy ache not painful but a funny sensation so i take that as my signal to stop. i have not felt hunger pains but im always ready at meal times to eat. i have not wanted to snack or pick up a biscuit or packet of crisp. i had a weigh in today just before i wrote this and i can tell you that i have lost 6lb in the 5 days so far. i never thought i would be the sort of person to write a comment on something but if this is working i want to tell everyone about it. i will add to this comment in a few weeks time to let you know if i still am on track. goodluck if you are about to try this Gastric Band.

14th February 2013 Since buying this book 4 weeks ago i am now a stone lighter. I have changed my way of eating totally, i dont crave food, i eat what i want, an not eaten a full plate of food since i did the trance. So a big thank you to Paul Mckenna for changing my life after 30 years of yo-yo dieting
