An exciting, new, safe approach to teenage weight loss, with the Elite Clinics Gastric Mind Band®.

Parents should be concerned; Thigh Gaps and the Bikini Bridge are, worryingly often, the body shape that an ever increasing number of teenage girls dream of achieving. A Thigh Gap for most is of course an impossible unachievable reality, with many health professionals believing that it can often be the precursor to a life of eating disorders. The Bikini Bridge debate with the daily appearance in the media of celebrity images lying on a sun kissed beach does little to inspire their body confidence; usually it establishes an unrealistic level of expectation around how teenagers should and can look. Often fuelled by the media and the fashion industry, it’s a topic that is not going to go away anytime soon….

Indeed Google either of the terms and you will be exposed to literally thousands of listings of blogs, forums and web sites dedicated to the two trends, you will even see a number of Inspirational Weight Loss and exercise sites that dangerously promote them. A recently released short film by Guy Aroch based in New York which appears to glamorise the Thigh Gap has received considerable media coverage both sides of the Atlantic, mostly negative….

The Gastric Mind Band® promoted as the Gold Standard in weight loss was developed by Martin & Marion Shirran at their Elite Clinic in Spain. The treatment is surgery free; incorporating a refreshing new advanced psychological approach to permanently changing a person’s eating habits and their relationship with food. They researched and perfected the concept, over a five year period, to provide a real alternative to having a surgical, Adjustable Gastric Band fitted. Their Gold Standard treatment is now the subject of the bestselling book, The Gastric Mind Band, published by Hay House; and has been featured on TV on both sides of the Atlantic and in the worlds press.

Over the last twelve months the Shirrans have become increasingly aware of the growing number of teenagers and parents contacting their clinics enquiring about the treatment specifically for teens. This has resulted in them developing a completely new, exciting and dedicated approach – “GMB for Teens”. Recently launched, and already receiving considerable interest, the product offers a real, safe and permanent weight loss solution for teenagers. In addition to the normal in-depth GMB treatment it incorporates additional sections, one of teenagers parents are encouraged to attend at least one of the sessions. Issues around body image insecurity and levels of self esteem are also incorporated, along with the encouragement and benefits of them adopting a healthy and active lifestyle with Healthy Weight Loss Diet Plan.

Martin and Marion have accumulated close to 6,000 hours of clinical time with weight loss clients, allowing them to constantly improve and perfect the treatment. GMB involves a clever combination of a number of proven psychological approaches, including CBT, Time Perspective Therapy, NLP, Hypnosis Gastric Band, Guided Imagery, and their very own Pause Button Therapy® http://www.textfixer.com/html/convert-word-to-html.phpand TactileCBT®.
