1.0 out of 5 stars I'm guess I'm the unlucky one, 8 Jan 2013
This review is from: The Hypnotic Gastric Band(CD+DVD) (Paperback)
I have read the book a couple of times... it all makes perfect sense and I think parts of the book are extremely interesting. However, no effect as yet on me, I feel no different in my mind or body. I did feel confident while I was reading the book and was expecting amazing changes to take place when I had watched the dvd and listened to the cd but no, nothing different for me.

Listen again. Might take a few times to sink in. Good luck!

I`ve Pauls " I can make you sleep" book and CD. I had to listen to the CD several times before it began to work, so for some people it takes time for it to take effect. So I imagine it would be the same with The Hypnotic Gastric Band Book and CD too. Obviously not everything works for everyone, but give it chance.

i used his quit smoking cd and i listened to it every night for two weeks and quit smoking for 5 years after smoking for 20 years. You really do need to listen more than once or twice :)

I'm a professional therapist, hypnotherapist and coach. I'd say that there's nothing stopping Paul's book/CD and DVD from working. Not everything works for everybody and it is always wise that the person checks with their doctor & discusses any concerns they may have about whether the book will work for them/is suitable for them. Reading a book like this and expecting amazing positive changes to happen is, of course, natural. And it can be disappointing when those expected changes don't materialize in the short term. But you have a unique mind and body (as we all do) and it's quite possible that the changes will take time to appear in your life.

That said, you say you feel no different in your mind or body. Which means that you are checking in with how your body and mind feels. Which will aid you in knowing when you are hungry and when you are full.

I have no connection with Paul, the publishers of this book etc. I'm just in a position to give a professional opinion from a distance. But as I say, check with your doctor/a qualified professional who knows your circumstances, health history etc.

I've used Paul's books and CD's for years and they have always made an impact on me but not immediately. For me I need to use them once or twice daily for at least a month and then I find that the effects last for quite a while and then I go back and repeat the process to progress further. I don't necessarily get the result I was expecting but it has always been positive with hindsight.

Don't give up. You are not unlucky. Persistence is what will work. This is not a miracle cure you do have to put effort into the work so chin up and try again. I am sure you can do it.

It took me weeks to start seeing results with his 'I can make you thin book/cd' I kept thinking it wasn't working for me but looking back I lost 5 and half pounds in 10 weeks just by tuning in to how my stomach felt. It don't sound much but I'm not that much overweight but I go up and down all the time and food rules my life. I found I hardly ever thought about food and felt better in myself but continued to eat what I wanted. It felt a long time to loose so little but as I was eating what I fancied and it still came off I think its a good result and I was looking at the bigger picture that this is for life. I've just ordered the gastric band book and hope I can continue to looseand feel better in myself however slow it takes. I hope that you give it a bit more of time.

I'm the same as you, all the other Paul Mckenna stuff has worked for me in the past, but this one doesn't seem to be doing anything. I loved the I can make you thin book and lost some weight that way, but I really wanted this to work and I'm so disappointed it doesn't seem to be doing anything. I'm listening to the cd 2 times a day, still nothings happening. I was convinced it was going to as well because of all these other great reviews, I hope it will work, I'm just very unsure now.

Do you think it might be useful to go back to the
I CAN MAKE YOU THIN and re-establish the habits learnt there; then move on to the Hypnotic Gastric Band, starting at the beginning again? I found using the two books, in conjunction with each other, works best for me. I hope, that on one of the CD listenings, things will "click" for you and you will move forward. Good luck in what ever you decide!
