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.

(10/1/13)
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...

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.

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.

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.

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
