By far the best way to lose weight is to shrink the size of your stomach. Here, Paul McKenna offers a completely new approach to doing just that. If you remember, 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.
