While the Virtual Gastric Band program focuses on portion control and doesn’t advocate a specific diet plan, I’m sure nobody would argue against when you eat you should eat healthy foods. After all, you could eat 3 meals a day of sugar right? But instinctively this wouldn’t be good for you.

Paradoxically, in the corporate world, the people who bring change to others are usually the worse to embrace change. People, generally, fight change, even when it’s good and necessary because it moves us out of our comfort zone.

A key component of my Virtual Gastric Band and weight loss hypnosis programs is eating until you’re satisfied. This may seem obvious but unfortunately is not the norm.
