To kick off the new year we're delighted that Paul McKenna will be joining us again to talk us through his latest venture, Hypnotic Gastric Band which Paul describes as 'the closest thing to real magic that he's ever witnessed'

Hypnotic Gastric Band is step-change in helping people achieve and maintain permanent, healthy weight loss. The audio programme and book offer 'a psychological procedure that convinces the unconscious mind that a gastric band has been fitted, so the body behaves exactly as if it were physical present'.

The procedure recently caused a stir in the States when Paul demonstrated the procedure on the Dr Oz Show and he's anticipating a similar response as the book is launched this week in the UK. The webchat will take place between 12.45 and 1.45pm on Monday 7 January. Join Paul then or post a question in advance of the webchat to this thread. Everyone who joins in the discussion will be entered into a draw to win one of five copies of the book.

After the web chat is over, we're giving four people the opportunity to talk directly to Paul McKenna over webcam in a live Google Hangout at 2pm.

If you've never seen a Google Hangout before, it's essentially a group video chat that anyone can watch. You can see an example here.

To be able to take part, you do need...

* To be available on Monday at 2pm

* To have a webcam either in, or attached to, your computer

* To have a good internet connection (wired, ideally, but wifi is OK if it's a top-notch signal)

You don't need to have a Google+ account set up right now. We can talk you through how to set it all up nearer the time.

If you'd like to take part in our Google Hangout with Paul McKenna please email us on hangouts@mumsnet.com. We'll get straight back in touch to talk you through what you need to do next. Everyone who joins in the hangout will receive a copy of Hypnotic Gastric Band

And we'll let everyone know more details on when and where you can watch the Hangout in a few days' time.

<sulks because I can't come too WMMC >

Anne - if you mean my bed, it's carved bronze, super king and one of the nicest places to G+ from in the world.

Ummm everyone who was on the hangout, I'm heading down on the 23rd for the event, if anyone wants to meet up with me, PM me and I'll give you my cell number. I'll be in London early and will happily meet for coffee with whoever. Oh and yes try and avoid the phrase 'what the F* are you doing at a weight loss seminar' if you wouldn't mind. smile I still have five pounds to go.

I'm too lazy to reliably turn up to my own meetings let alone your weight loss threads grin

This was more of a bedstead - it was gorgeous.

escape Mon 07-Jan-13 19:46:06

Me too - in an unlit room with a dark headboard behind me - was just a big head smile

NettleTea Mon 07-Jan-13 19:41:07

not me. I was the one who looked like I was in a cupboard full of bags and books, with terrible lighting that made my face look purple (always a good look!)

AnneEyhtMeyer Honduras Mon 07-Jan-13 18:18:59

It was good to be on it and see some other MNetters!

My laptop overheated and cut out just after he answered my question - good job it didn't cut out while he was talking to me. Don't think I missed much, but I then had to hold the laptop up above the worksurface for the rest of it, so was a bit wobbly!

Who had the gorgeous headboard?

ppeatfruit Mon 07-Jan-13 17:46:17

The echo was so bad on it I just tried to watch again and had to stop, shame you don't use your mn names!!!

sammimammy Mon 07-Jan-13 15:32:07

How about just eat a bit less rubbish every day, cut down on snacks and do a little bit of exercise. Oh yeah and have lots more sex smile

Don't know who else was on the hangout though, I was!! it was my son who ran in saying 'i love you, I love you' during my question, but was too short to be seen onscreen. Just in case anyone thinks it was me blush
