In Visualization for Weight Loss, Jon Gabriel expands on the most talked about tool in his bestselling book, The Gabriel Method: visualization. This powerful technique helped Jon drop 220 pounds without dieting or deprivation because it didn't depend on calorie counting or extreme exercise - rather it changed his biochemistry and neural pathways. In turn, this helped lower stress and its associated inflammatory chemicals in his body, allowing him to lose weight easily and naturally. Examining the importance of visualizing for weight loss, Jon takes readers through the latest research on the power of the mind in order to show why this technique works. And then he lays out concrete, unintimidating advice about how to implement visualization into their lives. In addition to teaching readers how to move into the most powerful brain state for enacting change, Jon includes visualizations to help readers:
* Overcome disempowering beliefs surrounding food and weight loss * Melt away stress * Conquer fears of losing weight * Rediscover the joy of movement * Create healthy new habits * Kill food cravings and addictions * Achieve better sleep
Jon not only provides readers with these visualizations but also teaches them how to create their own personalized visualizations that can be even more powerful. He then presents a four-month visualization strategy that can be easily included in anyone's life - no matter what time constraints they face.
In 2001 Jon Gabriel weighed 409 pounds. He'd tried almost every popular diet available without success. Overweight, overworked and unhappy, Jon was ready to give up. Then on September 11, 2001, Jon received a wake-up call. He was scheduled to fly from Newark to San Francisco that day, and it was only by chance that he was not on United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania. This made Jon realize that life was a precious opportunity not to be wasted. He also realized that his weight would eventually kill him, so he decided to do something about it, eventually losing 200 pounds. His book The Gabriel Method is an international bestseller with over 350,000 readers worldwide. www.TheGabrielMethod.com.
