You’ve probably noticed that diet shakes and quick fix weight loss plans are everywhere right now. In the age of Instagram, everyone wants to get the perfect body – and fast! These shakes seem to be the perfect solution. Well, they are too good to be true. Read on to find out how they’re just not an effective solution in the long term, unlike our Gastric Band Hypnotherapy treatment.
Shakes Aren’t as Nutritious
The key to keeping your weight down is a balanced diet, and meal replacement shakes just aren’t as wholesome as an actual meal. Just think about it. They are designed to sit on shop shelves for weeks or even months on end, without refrigeration. So as you can imagine, the ingredients in them are heavily processed to ensure a long shelf life. As a result, there is very little left in the way of whole food or nutrition, and elements that are essential for a balanced diet, nutrient absorption and healthy digestion are hugely diminished.
They’re Not as Satisfying as a Meal
You don’t need us to tell you that glugging a diet shake isn’t quite the same as tucking into a delicious meal. It’s human nature to experience joy from eating, and a diet shake doesn’t have the nuanced flavour profile of say, a delicious chicken salad with fresh vegetables. They also don’t look as appetising, so you don’t get that same kind of excitement and enjoyment. As a result, you are much more likely to fall off the wagon and turn to foods that are unhealthy, just for some instant gratification.
You Need a Long Term Solution
If you have always struggled with your weight, then you need a permanent solution, not a quick fix. That’s where our Gastric Mind Band comes in. Built on some of the most effective hypnosis and CBT therapy techniques, this treatment will really get to the root of your issues with food. It’s natural to have some questions though – so we’ve addressed some of the most frequent ones that we receive.
Surely diet shakes are better for my budget?
We understand that you don’t want to spend a fortune on losing weight, but the reality is that using diet drinks is a very expensive habit to maintain in the long run. While you will have to make a larger initial payment for the permanent Psychology Focused, Clinical Hypnosis at the Elite Weight Loss Clinic, you could end up saving money in the long run, as you will achieve your target weight, and be free of dieting for ever….how nice will that be….
I rely on diet drinks to save time, how long is the treatment?
Diet drinks are such a temptation for people short on time, as they require zero preparation. However, our weight loss treatment takes just three days to complete at our clinic in sunny Spain. So you can easily fit it into some leave from work or even a long weekend, as there’s no recovery time to worry about. If you really don’t have the time to travel, we also offer treatments over Skype.
What if I get cravings for unhealthy foods?
Sticking to a meal replacement plan is tough, especially when you’re battling cravings for other foods. Our Gastric Mind Band treatment helps to eliminate the temptation for unhealthy foods; cravings are eliminated, so you will automatically opt for more nutritious options. Best of all, as your mindset has been totally changed, you won’t feel like you’re on a diet!
