On Monday night we successfully installed 12 virtual gastric band’s in my office.  12 participants have now embarked on a trial program that will see them eat less, drop weight, and live healthier lives without the need for drastic diets or surgery.  We also explored food addiction, why it is we feel compelled to eat tubby foods, and why we eat to soothe.

Of particular interest was one gentleman who had originally signed up for gastric bypass surgery, but was convinced otherwise after meeting with people who had “successfully” undergone the procedure.  In his opinion although many of them had lost weight, they were less healthy, in his opinion, than if they’d not had the surgery.

Most people were optimistic about the endeavour, and we’re all certainly excited to see how it turns out.

More as the trial unfolds..
