Book Synopsis(via Goodreads):
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 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:
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.
As Jon found in 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.

This insomniac's opinion:
I've struggled with my weight for years. Even when I religiously count calories and exercise regularly, the pounds don't really seem to budge. So, I've been wondering for a long while if there was more that I could do. Thus, this book seemed a good place to start.
I really enjoy Jon's down to Earth writing style and he made a lot of great points. The book includes some audio recordings of the meditations which were wonderful and I found myself using them everyday.
I truly believe that there is a mental connection to not only our weight, but everything in our lives. So, I haven't had any miracle success yet, but will continue using these techniques as I find them really helpful!
