There is a lot of debate surrounding the concept of permanent weight loss, with some people claiming that it is an almost impossible goal. We have helped hundreds of people to achieve their dream weight, and maintain it. We always say that helping someone to lose weight is relatively easy. However, ensuring that the weight loss is permanent, well…that is the silver bullet. And that is what we strive to deliver, every single day.

Martin and Marion Shirran: About us…

So is it Possible to Lose Weight Permanently? We are Martin and Marion Shirran, and in 2004, we opened our Elite Clinic in Southern Spain. Initially, we treated a range of conditions, including general addictions, cocaine, alcohol, nicotine etc. Our successful treatment protocol for Bulimia resulted in the clinic receiving considerable media exposure.

Is it Possible to Lose Weight Permanently?

During 2007, we started to develop our psychology-based, weight-loss treatment, the ‘Gastric Mind Band’. At the time, we were aware of a need to offer non-surgical, risk-free weight-loss alternatives to help people lose weight safely and permanently. I (Martin) was one of the initial trial candidates for the treatment. That’s me in the photo below. I subsequently went on to lose 85 pounds. We also have a dedicated page where you can read more about us.

Risk-Free Weight Loss

Is it Possible to Lose Weight Permanently?

Marion and I personally financed the research, development and real person trials of the new weight-loss treatment. Our programme was then trademarked in both the EU and North America. The unique treatment incorporated a range of proven therapies, along with our own, upgraded version of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Then each therapy was unpinned by another, resulting in an elevated success rate. Sarah Hart, below, was one of our first clients, and she went on to lose over 140 pounds.

Our science-based treatment also incorporated the Time Perspective Theories, as developed by Professor Philip Zimbardo, at Stanford University, in San Francisco. Additionally, we incorporated the very latest research findings linked to Neuroplasticity. This area of science has progressed considerably with the advances in brain-imaging technology.

A Unique Approach

Our pioneering treatment includes our unique underpinning technique, along with our own Forensic Weight-Loss Questionnaire. Surprisingly, the success rate of the treatment proved to be similar to that of weight-loss surgery. However, it was a fraction of the cost of the surgical alternative. And also, because there was no need for a general anaesthetic, the weight loss achieved was completely risk-free. As a result, national newspapers, magazines, and lifestyle TV shows around the world quickly started to take an interest in our treatment. You may also like to read our blog post “Best Diet Secrets”

In 2009, we began to research and develop PBT, which was an upgrade to traditional CBT, and the foundation of TactileCBT®. PBT is a vital part of our weight-loss treatment. It also ensures the treatment remains totally unique. Reija, below, lost 65 pounds following her treatment. She also appeared in the UK national press.
