Lacking Willpower to Lose Weight? We Can Help

Lacking Willpower to Lose Weight We Can Help

Think yourself thin with GM Band

Losing weight is not always easy, but our therapy-based treatment programme can give you the kickstart you need to shed the excess pounds.

Britain is experiencing an obesity crisis, with almost two thirds of adults in the UK classed as overweight or obese. And this has serious implications for the nation’s health, as carrying excess weight can cause or exacerbate a number of serious health problems, including stroke, heart disease type 2 diabetes, and a number of different cancers.

Obstacle to weight loss

With risks such as these, it’s easy to see why so many people are keen to lose weight, trying out all kinds of weight loss methods and fad diets in a bid to shift the excess pounds. Of course, we all know, in theory, how to lose weight. It’s just a case of burning off more calories than you put in. But the reality can be a lot more difficult. Willpower (or lack of it) is a key factor for a lot of people and, in many instances, it can be the biggest obstacle standing in the way of successful weight loss. In fact, research shows that while almost two thirds of us are on a diet ‘most of the time’, most people find it difficult to stick to a diet for more than a few weeks.

Harnessing the power of the mind

Unlike many other dieting methods, the GM Band weight loss system recognises the power of the mind to hinder weight loss but also, conversely, how it can be harnessed to help people achieve their weight loss goals.

Husband and wife team, Martin and Marion Shirran developed the Gastric Mind Band to provide people with a non-invasive, non-surgical weight loss option that is completely safe and, most importantly, offers impressive results. Based in Fuengirola, Spain, the GM Band clinic provides clients with a programme of therapy-based treatment that combines weight loss hypnosis and hypnotherapy with recognised therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and TCBT.

Clients participate in several highly structured sessions over the course of three to four days. These take place with the clinic’s therapists and include a health assessment, conceptualisation and CBT. The final session takes the client through a visualisation process, culminating in the ‘fitting’ of the Gastric Mind Band.

Permanent lifestyle change

One of the key unique selling points of the GM Band programme is the belief that having an unhealthy relationship with food and being overweight is essentially a psychological rather than physical issue, and that these issues need to be resolved in order for people to achieve meaningful and long-lasting weight loss.

Using psychology both as a diagnostic and treatment tool, GM Band aims to retrain your cognitive thinking and permanently change the way you think about food. This combined with diet and nutrition advice and follow-up support gives you the best possible chance of making a permanent lifestyle change.

Weight loss that works

Although GM Band may sound like an unconventional weight loss method, it is a treatment that gets results, as testified by our long list of satisfied clients. So, if you’re struggling to shift the pounds and your willpower could do with a little boost, choose a weight loss treatment that works and think yourself thin with the GM Band weight loss system.
