How to Lose Weight without Dieting!

98% of people find that diets don’t help long term – this has been known for some time and was highlighted in a recent BBC Documentary “The Men who make us Slim.”

The programme showed how all the books, clubs, faddy diets, shakes, meal replacements, raspberry ketones pill etc – MIGHT help you lose weight in the short term.

Nutritionists say that nearly ANY starvation or restriction or replacement diet can help you lose weight short term but actually you need to target long term your “normal eating” because every time you get bored and go back to “normal eating” you put on weight, or worse, studies at UCLA show, put on MORE weight!

You need to tackle WHY you overeat and motivate yourself to put in place some easy methods to naturally lose weight. Restriction or Replacement or Starvation diets can actually not be healthy long term and can stimulate the body to defend itself from attack by making you eat MORE.

You need a no nonsense approach based around proper nutritional best practice.

It’s confusing about what you should and shouldn’t be eating, what calories and carbs, how much exercise? Is Red Wine good or Bad? What about Junk Food and Ready Meals?

Time to strip away the nonsense peddled in Books, Newspapers and Magazines – and use an approach to your diet that if you follow it actually works!

 Is it Weight Loss with Hypnotherapy or The Hypno Gastric Band that you have been looking for?

Do you feel like a dieting failure – if so – the dieting industry loves you because you are the ultimate repeat business!

You believe it is all your fault – but actually it has been known for a long time that diets don’t work well long term for most people.

Time to STOP beating yourself up: You are not idle, an idiot, lacking in willpower or undisciplined – you’ve simply picked up some bad habits that seemed to help you cope with the slings and arrows of Life – and those overeating habits made you fat. 

So it isn’t your fault that diets don’t work. Studies at UCLA show this:

“Diets do not lead to sustained weight loss or health benefits for the majority of people.” Traci Mann, Psychologist at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

Repeatedly losing and gaining weight has been linked, in studies, to cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes and altered immune function.

Professor Mann found that, though dieters typically lost up to 10% of their starting weight in the first six months, at least one-third to two-thirds of people on diets regained more weight than they lost within four or five years.

Among those who were followed for more than two years, 83% eventually put more weight back on than they had lost.

One study showed that half of dieters weighed over 11 pounds more than their starting weight five years after the diet.


How would it be to say goodbye to counting calories, sins, having boring Milk Shakes – dreading the weekly weigh in!

 There is a way of losing weight and keeping it off permanently. You can find ways to address WHY you overeat and deal with the reasons that you comfort eat, binge or pick and nibble or eat because you feel emotional.

Would you like to find out how to eat normal amounts of great food and become the weight that you want to be? AND keep the weight off – get into those trousers or dresses again! Then this might be the weight loss course for you.

Imagine a pound of lard.

Now picture fourteen bricks of lard in a rucksack.

 How do you choose the right weight loss hypnosis course for you?

IMG_0280 Weight Loss Hypnosis 3 part course

This is an excellent weight loss option if you want to shed a few stone – you will be UNDER the BMI of 30.

Are you fed up of faddy yo yo diets and slimming clubs not working? Join the 98% that it doesn’t work for LONG TERM.

If you have tried Weight Watchers or Slimmers World or Lighter Life and it wasn’t for you?

You need to target Normal Eating and, like this, you lose weight and keep it off without special diets or faddy eating. Follow the programme and you WILL lose weight at a rate and speed that is right for you.

This weight loss course will help you keep excess weight off permanently. The course uses very safe hypnosis, which is just gently relaxing, natural to you, and you are aware at all times of what is happening. This will help you to overcome bad habits and old ways of coping with overeating – with better tools and strategies to become an “intelligent eater”. Experience counts – it is not enough for someone to just read a script – they need to be able to work with you and over many hours of clinical experience – I feel I have seen and heard and worked with every combination!

You will find better ways to eat great food in a normal way!

I can help you to lose the weight and also to keep it off with cutting edge nutritional information allied to an understanding of why you overeat and also addressing comfort eating, binge eating, anxiety, work related stress, depression and many other factors that may cause overeating.

I will also motivate you to take a small amount of appropriate exercise. These courses will help you lose weight for good – safely, with you and I working together to create a bespoke approach – buy this and you are buying into many hundreds of hours of experience with clients addressing a huge range of issues surrounding overeating. If you don’t think you know why you overeat this tried and tested course will help you locate the reasons and address them.

The only decision is whether you need to lose a stone or two or if you are classified as obese – obesity is roughly if you have a BMI over 30. If you have a few stone to lose and eating issues to tackle the 3 part weight loss hypnosis course is for you if you  are otherwise contemplating gastric banding bariatric surgery and a real gastric band, stomach stapling or gastric bypass or gastric sleeve – then look at the HYPNO GASTRIC BAND HYPNOSIS 4 part course below first


Gastric Band Procedure

Hypnotherapy Gastric Band

The Hypno Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis course is a tried and tested weight loss hypnotherapy system using some of the methods in the WEIGHT LOSS HYPNOSIS course above in addition to the HYPNO GASTRIC BAND virtual gastric band.

You would be a BMI OVER 28.

In my opinion this is the best way for weight loss – to lose weight without “dieting” or “slimming” – if you are “classified” as obese!

I was one of the first to implement this slimming system so have many clinical hours of experience dealing with every kind of eating disorder, comfort eating, emotional eating, bingeing, picking and nibbling and addressing the reasons why you have coped in the past with the overeating habit for stresses and strains, ( and yes a lot of overeating is because of stress and strain), or boredom or indeed other triggers which we explore in a bespoke way to build a weight management course just for YOU.

Many people have found themselves yo yo dieting because they haven’t addressed WHY they overeat. This system involves, as well as the virtual gastric band hypnosis, using hypnotherapy, hypnoanalysis, NLP, motivation and nutritional advice.These are explained to you and you undertake any treatment with a clear idea of what will happen and an awareness of the treatment.

I cannot MAKE you do anything – you learn tools for self control and self determination. I am not Tinkerbell with a magic wand! Hypnotherapy depends for it’s succees in the therapist and client working together to find the best possible outcome.

The weight loss course consists of four parts and will help you deal with overeating issues and focus on changing your eating habits to help you become an “intelligent eater” by changing your mind-set. You will be aware at all times. Hypnosis is very relaxing.

If you have been considering a gastro band, gastric band, lap band or bariatric surgery, gastric bypass or stomach stapling – why not have a look at Hypno Gastric Band Hypnotherapy first?

Edge of the World Hypnotherapy has been a registered and certified provider of the Hypno Gastric Band System TM which is hypnotherapy for a virtual gastric band since 2010.

We work together to resolve your issues around food and change your relationship with food. Many people have simply forgotten how to control their overeating.We look at whatever triggers drive overeating to find a strategy INSTEAD of reaching for food. We also put in place a sensible weight management approach.

This approach is a risk free and fun way to lose weight with hypnosis and become slimmer without calorie counting. You will not be dieting either so there will be no slipping back to old fat producing ways of eating.

As a result of this treatment you will also want to up your exercise a little.

Studies at UCLA confirm that slimmers usually gain weight again once they stop dieting and go back to the old ways of eating.

Treatments for Real Gastric Band / Bariatric Surgery after care

I have worked with a number of people who had Bariatric Surgery. They found that although it usually worked that it did not remove the reasons why they overate. This meant that they still felt a strong compulsion to overeat and started finding ways around the Gastric Band. They would reduce food to a mush in a liquidiser or find that sugary snacks pretty much got past the band. Thus they were still having issues with weight. I offer a service to help them deal with the overeating issues holistically to find strategies to replace the overeating compulsion.

DISCLAIMER: Hypnosis is a permissive state and is not a replacement for medical intervention – results can vary but success rates can be high as we work together in a bespoke way.

More about Hypnosis for Weight Loss and Virtual Hypno Gastric Band Hypnosis

Losing weight is often seen as a struggle – we go to Weight Watchers or Slimming World or do the Dukan diet and it might work for a while a and then you go back to the old ways of eating and put some if not all of the weight back on.

This is because you haven’t addressed WHY you overeat:

It can be a range of things that make you a “yo yo dieter”.

•    comfort eating or binge eating when stressed or anxious or emotional
•    you were told to “clear your plate” when a child
•    you may have a skewed idea of portion size
•    maybe some unresolved issues or limiting perceptions around eating
•    you don’t really exercise
•    you eat “rubbish food” which makes you “feel better about yourself”
•    you might habitually drink more than half a bottle of Wine a night

The problems that can come from being overweight or obese can range from heart disease to diabetes and osteoarthritis or even cancer. If you imagine each pound of fat as if it were a brick of lard – you get the idea- put fourteen of those bricks in a rucksack and try to even walk around and your joints and you will protest loudly you may have difficulty breathing and you will soon feel worn out. Yet you may be carrying not just several pounds but several stone which puts pressure on your body and could lead to osteoarthritis, heart trouble, blood pressure, type 2 diabetes or cancer.

The answer in my view is NOT to diet or slim – but to become “an intelligent eater” who chooses what they eat and how they eat it.

A person who could walk into a buffet and cherry pick what they eat – put a small portion of delicious healthy food on the plate and eat it slowly with pleasure and STOP when you feel full.

This person knows how much is enough and wouldn’t want to pollute their body with rubbish food – that is like putting paraffin in a Rolls Royce.

This person has also learned how to deal with their feelings rather than feed them and has strategies for anxiety and stress feelings or lack of self confidence and depression.

This person feels more in control of their eating and their life. They feel motivated to take a little exercise.

This person may well have been through my weight loss hypnosis course and if they are classified obese (BMI over 30) they have also had a Hypno Gastric Band fitted under Hypnosis and so they simply eat about half of what they used to eat.

They now take some exercise and eat mindfully they are therefore losing weight and keeping it off.

The weight loss hypnotherapy courses are available at one of my practices in Central Colchester Essex Ipswich and Hadleigh Suffolk or by Skype.

 Testimonial for the Hypno Gastric Band Hypnotherapy:

“My Gastric Band Hynotherapy was so much easier then I thought, I almost instantly felt motivated and wanted to change the way I eat, A month later I still keep a food diary, go for long walks and enjoy eating the better food! I’m so pleased with my weight loss so far, of 13 pounds after four weeks, and would recommend it to anyone’” Ms H E

Hi Graham – I trust you are well? I’m sure you will be delighted to know that I am progressing well with my weight loss – since my final session, I have lost 1 stone 4 1/2 pounds and I have dropped a dress size! And I am starting to get my confidence back. And running again which has astonished my other half and my colleagues! As I’m doing really well with my weight loss, I’ve obviously benefited from having my HypnoGastricBand fitted. We’ve been out for dinner a few times but on each occasion I haven’t felt the need for a dessert and I have stopped eating when I’ve been full, even though a large part of me has wanted to carry on eating because I was enjoying what I was eating. Every time I’ve ‘fallen off the wagon’, I’ve been straight back at it the next day. Thanks so much! Ms RA

Hi Graham,

I hope you are well.

I thought I would email you to let you know my progress. It has now been almost 7 months since my last session with you.

On Friday at weigh in, I hit my 3 stone target (in fact I have now lost 3 stone 1 pound) and I have 5 1/2 pounds to go to target. I am now fitting into size 10/12 clothes and have new found confidence in myself. I’d like to keep going and lose another stone if I can … What an achievement!

“Dear Graham I wanted to update you on my progress. Well it is week 7 since I first saw you and I have now lost 20lb in total. Last week my Doctor wrote me a lovely letter about how interested he was in my virtual gastric band and said that he thought other patients might benefit and wanted your details. I photo copied your card several times and wrote a nice reply saying that I hoped other patients would benefit from this type of treatment. I am still very happy and doing really well and joined a Gym at the weekend and have been swimming daily since – I am going to have an induction for the Gym equipment at the weekend and they also have great classes at the Gym one in particular I am hoping to attend next week is “Salsa” it is without partners and just the movements to music which would be ideal for me as I love the music.

It really is changing my life and whole outlook on things. You may certainly post my letter as a testimonial -as I am truly very happy and I really hope other people get the same success. I am on holiday on … for a week and may come and see you for my floating appointment on return to keep focussed. I will take my CD with me and listen daily! Regards Mrs M (Name withheld for confidentiality reasons)”

“Hi Graham

It’s been a few weeks now since I last saw you. Thought I’d let you know that all’s going to plan. I’m still listening to the CD’s, not everyday but when I can. I’m still keeping a food diary and the books that you recommend have been very good. Particularly the ‘Eat Less’ one that seems to talk to me. From time to time whilst I’m reading it I found myself say ‘Ah but’ only to find the response to what I’m thinking is in the next few lines. Spooky.

Another spooky thing that happened, it has made me realise that the Hypnotism worked – I have consciously decreased portion sizes and now consciously eat and look for more nutritious way of eating, never being quite sure how much influence the hypnotism has had, then I was out last Thursday night at a Harvester, I conscientiously went for all the healthiest options and my dinner arrived. I had planned to eat the lot, after all it was OK for me to do that, I had planned it and then half way through I found myself saying ‘I’m full up and I don’t want any more’ and for probably the first time ever in a restaurant it was really ok for me to leave half, I was satisfied I wasn’t telling myself to be good, I genuinely wanted the healthy food options and was genuinely happy not to clear the plate, I knew at that moment that it is the hypnotism working at a sub conscious level and not me telling myself consciously what to do because I was aware I was thinking how much I wanted to carry on eating but it was OK not to.

It’s 6 weeks since I first came to you, I usually lose interest in ‘diets’ after 6 weeks but find myself totally committed to carry on . I have lost 17 1/2lbs to date and I am totally confident that my weight will continue to fall. I still find it difficult not to make weight loss the target, so concentrate very much on food on a day to day basis.

Hope you are keeping well, are as busy as you want to be and that you find the feed back interesting, it’s so nice not to be on a diet and still be losing weight.”

Take Care


“I was waiting until today to give you a progress report as I had a Doctors’ appointment this morning and he was VERY pleased with my weight loss he said 11 pounds since he last weighed me in January but I know it is 1 stone now so am also VERY pleased and VERY happy. I did tell the Doctor of how I was achieving my weight loss and he was very interested and supportive and thought it was a good choice for me as it certainly seemed to be working. I did miss my weekly appointment slot this week and think I may book in a couple of weeks to have the band tightened a little so that I do not lose focus. I have been listening to week two CD every day at least once. I am feeling exceedingly HAPPY and keep smiling and it certainly is changing my life and I thank you for this and will certainly keep you updated weekly as I think it will help me too. I am thinking about some excercise now and am going swimming. On Saturday my friend has invited me to …. House in Colchester I really need to start doing some walking or swimming or something and then feel the weight would reduce quicker so I am working on that! Any way Thanks again and keep in touch” MF

“Magic Wand effective – Half stone lost this week! Thanks for the top up session!! RW

“It has taken a Year to reach my Target weight and size – but what do I care – I reached it and the key thing is my Life is so much happier and my Legal Practice works so much better with all those tips on prioritising and ending procrastination and also stopping being a doormat. The process also showed me to see what I really want in Life.” A FEMALE BARRISTER

I have lost four stone and my Wife two stone – my Doctor is delighted as the knee op is holding and, as my blood pressure has dropped, my risk of heart problems has diminished! I find the system easy and the CDs I listen too regularly to relax and still one year on. I still hear new things.
