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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sceptic converted! 13 Oct 2014
It's not often I write reviews, but I thought this one was worth it.

I am a true skeptic when it comes to NLP, I just can't believe that if you tell yourself something often enough it will happen and I bought this (Kindle edition) only because I had a free Kindle credit.

I've been a yoyo dieter all my adult life, and I've slowly been losing weight since May 2014 using calorie counting and increasing my exercise, but I still struggle with knowing when I'm full and feeling hungry between meals.

With a "it can't hurt" attitude I dutifully downloaded the booklet and read it cover to cover before beginning the "pre-op" chapter of the audio track. It does advise that you walk for 20 mins per day and decrease high fat and high sugar food for a week before your "op" as if it was a real operation, but since my diet is already good and I exercise daily I dove straight in.

The first time I listened to the full program I did it before I went to sleep, which may have been a mistake as i really didn't get to listen to most of the 30 minute "operation"; the second time I listened (and you have to listen to it once a day for a week to make the programming "stick") I found a quiet 30 mins on a Sunday morning to fully concentrate on it.

Mr. McKenna has a perfect hypnotists voice, deep and lulling; and although I never felt sleepy or tranced during the 30 mins I did feel very relaxed afterwards.

The "hypnotic gastric band" claims to reprogram your brain into thinking that you have had a physical band fitted to increase early satiety and also to prolong that feeling of fullness.

Imagine my suprise when, even after listening to the program twice, I can no longer eat as much as I could.

Hi got this 11th August 2014 its now 6th September 2014 and I have lost 18lb I do listen to the cd every night before I go to bed its become a bit of an addiction but it has worked I'm still eating all the foods I like but just less of them and it has stopped me snacking on chocolate bars ( which was a BIG problem ) . I would just like to say that I dislike all diet food you know salads, tuna, chickpeas , I like normal food which is why I have never gone for diets because I always fall at the first gate because I just don't like the food they insist that you eat to lose weight. This idea just makes sense to me its is something that you can do for the rest of your life without giving up whole food groups. Please give it a try. I would also say that I'm now walking at least 20 miles a week and doing a fitness class once a week . I started walking to ease myself into exercise ( and also because it is free and you can go at your own pace )in the beginning I walk 40 mins a day by walking the long way to and fro to work but I found out I enjoyed it so now I walk for miles for fun try it , it might work for you and it makes you feel so much better in your self. Just to let you know I'm not a skinny Minnie I still have another 2 stones to lose until I'm a normal weight for my height but I'm closer now and I will do it .
