About the Author
Martin Shirran and his wife Marion, trained clinical hypnotherapists, pull no punches. Their belief in their Gastric mind Band therapy is absolute and absolutely passionate, and this extends to their belief in their first book. Martin, an ex marketing and PR man, is a gregarious, persuasive individual whose written style reflects this. His natural ability to 'sell' his beliefs about obesity and the GmB therapy shines through in person and on the page. Marion, a former teacher, has done much of the backroom development and fine-tuning of the various techniques involved, and her thoughts on the subject are equally clear and articulate. They both prefer to talk straight to the reader just as if you were in the therapy suite with them. It's a bit like tough love. Tough love that they've put to the test first hand . . . . when they started developing the therapy Martin was a hefty 264 lb and Marion a seemingly effortlessly slim 124lb. They worked sometimes 24/7 much of the time for two years testing, tweaking and developing their therapy . . . . Martin now weighs in 57lb lighter and Marion's understanding of her relationship with food has played a key part in how they approach 'The Hunger Question' She, naturally, has remained within a few pounds, the same weight throughout. Now Martin understands why! Fiona Graham is a former London journalist working as a freelance writer from her home in Spain.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who needs to lose weight this year - I certainly will be carrying on with the solution and will have this book to refer to and re-read as I get rid of my excess weight!
The content of this book written by the Shirrans, offers the reader the opportunity to access the therapies used by the authors professionally, in their clinics. It is written in a conversational, straight-talking style which gives the feel of personal attention to the reader by the authors, and it takes the reader on a journey through the stages of the treatment. Some 'case studies' are included, which demonstrate how people can achieve weight loss by participating in the therapy.
The book is also full of tips and ideas to help the reader to work towards their goals and the technical medical jargon contained in the book is minimal, so easier to read.
Anyone with problems relating to weight management should take a look at this book as it is upbeat, positive and can give the reader the motivation to be able to say 'yes,I can do this'!.
The self-hypnosis parts are brief and somewhat limited, but they do give the key parts necessary to make it work. As a hypnotherapist, I can make sense of them, and so would people who have at least some prior knowledge of hypnosis. For people who are totally new to hypnosis and hypnotherapy, and who want to use it as a self-help guide, I would recommend reading up a little on hypnosis before attempting to do the sessions for themselves.
