Summary

In Visualization for Weight Loss, Jon Gabriel expands on the most talked about tool in his best-selling 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 listeners 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 listeners how to move into the most powerful brain state for enacting change, Jon includes visualizations to help listeners:

  • 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 listeners 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.

As Jon found on his journey, the biggest challenge in weight loss is not finding the perfect diet or the perfect exercise routine; the biggest challenge is convincing your brain that your body needs to be thin.

author, please read. I loved it. Why only 3 stars?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes. I agree with everything the author says

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

1. Rather than visualisation exercises randomly placed throughout the book, having them also at the end. 2. Make relevant visualisations together and in sequence rather than being broken up throughout the book. For example, the author launches in to visualisations to use once in 'smart mode' several chapters after giving the smart mode visualisation method and says you should bookmark and record them or download them from his website. Should I really need to do this? What is the purpose in buying an audiobook if I then need to record sections of it in order to gain the full benefit of it. When purchasing an audiobook this should be provided for you.3. A PDF companion. I don't recall the website you referred to for the free downloads, I was listening to an audiobook so that my hands were free for other tasks so I didn't have a pen to hand. I now find myself having to listen to the whole book again just to get the website addresses for something you should have included in the audiobook. 4. Please make this a complete solution rather than doing what all other bloggers and authors are doing - providing people with half a of solution in order to get people to sign up to your website/blog/healthy forever programme.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

Do you think Visualization for Weight Loss needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes. It needs a free to download update to cover the points raised above

Any additional comments?

I loved the content of this book. I rarely write reviews but I think you (the author) have an important message to give to people and I just wish you had done it in such a way that was more accessible. If you address these points above I bet you would double your sales.

Inspired

Loved this and believe it. Visualising works. I've been doing the night time visualisation for a week and my food desires are changing already and I'm getting great sleep. Will definitely be making this my way of life.

A Life Changer!

Once I started to listen to Jon's story and put his advice into practice, it was a real life changer. For some, the process takes time, but for me, the results were instant! I'm new to this, but astounded at it's effectiveness. I'm a convert. Highly recommend.

Good Audiobook But Not Complete

Excellent book. The visualization, which are contained in the appendix of the paper edition, are not contained in the audiobook. The whole point of this method is to use visualizations! There should be a clear warning in the description of this audiobook that the most important part of the method are not to be found in this audio edition!

Visualization!!?!!?

I think that what ever comes in the book, should be in the audio as well!! This is the 3rd audio book that says there are extra recipes, ingredients or visualizations at the end, and there is nothing there!!!! Why???

good book, but visualisations not included

you'll have to get the paper copy to get the appendix with all the visualizations. there are three free ones online and a couple written throughout the text, but the "16 week program" described recommends visualizations that are not included with the audiobook version :(

This is the answer to sustained weight loss.

Jon presents what I believe is the only way to achieve sustained weight loss! A mind body approach that has nothing to do with calories in/calories out. His method creates an environment where we can get back in touch with our body and learn how our thoughts create what our body manifests physically.

Good for anyone

A very different approach to weight loss. I can see how this could work in so many areas of life. I've been doing this for a week and notice a difference in my energy levels:) There are a lot of freebies in this book. (He gives the links as he's reading)

Gabriel Method

Works for me. I read the Gabriel method first and it changed my mind immediately. Then decided to follow up with this Visualization book. More than pleased with the results. Before these books , I truly believed I could not or would not loss my baby fat. My baby is now 33 years old and fat is melting away without even trying. I must add I have read many nutritional books over the years and have had the knowledge and ate pretty well. Now I put it to use daily and I am loving it. lots of good fats and greens ect. I CAN EAT WHAT EVER I WANT, FOOD IS PLENTIFUL. That's the secret.

Loved it!

Very informative and inspiring! I haven't started regular visualizations yet and I already feel a difference. I can't wait to see how I feel in 16 weeks.

Weights is a head-game...

You probably know much of what Jon is talking about, but he does have it all in one place. If you have something that brings your state/brainwaves to Alpha and/or Theta, and you have some targeted positive suggestion consistently--- overtime, your body will change. I enjoyed his stories of failed diet attempts, even working directly with the late Dr, Adkins. Jon is easy to listen to and gives some examples of meditations. I think some readers want a full CD of meditations, but it seems from this book, he is wanting you to create your own. He does have ones online for free on the Tube of You. All the best to though we have made it their goal to get to a healthy weight and maintain it! This will definitely help me--- should I find it does not, I will update my review in 30 days.
