Editorial Reviews

Review

“Dr. Sadeghi is the doctor who has changed my life. This book will change yours.” —Gwyneth Paltrow

“Habib Sadeghi is an insightful, kind man who approaches healing in a fresh and uncomplicated way. If one is able to acknowledge that illness is created by an imbalance in the body, and that one’s state of mind and emotional well-being are integral to the overall health of the body, then Habib has practical suggestions on how to achieve a new realm of health and healing.” —Tim Robbins

“Dr. Sadeghi has shown me how my outside often reflects my inside; how our minds and bodies mirror each other. He has helped me a great deal, and I hope that through this book more people can enjoy the benefit of his compassion.” —Chris Martin

“When you locate a person in your world that is able to understand who you are at a very deep level—you rejoice at your great good fortune. When you locate a doctor in your world who is able to know what is going on throughout your body in a holistic way—you also rejoice at such a fortunate discovery. When you find that the doctor you have met is also such an intuitive person—you are permitted to spend a few moments in completely honest disbelief . . . it is totally natural. Dr. Habib Sadeghi is such a person and such a doctor. . . . Welcome to the wonderful world of life’s realizations and health filled resolutions that reach way beyond your brightest expectations.” —Guru Singh, DD, MSS, spiritual teacher and author

“I don’t think I’ve come across anyone who understands more about the mind/body connection when it comes to changing our health or our lives, than Dr. Sadeghi. In fact, he’s living proof of it.” —Emily Blunt

“Dr. Sadeghi approaches overwhelming issues with a soft and gentle approach. He gives us support to life’s challenges in a way that removes fear and shame. We have the power to change our lives and Dr. Sadeghi helps you to help yourself.” —Stella McCartney
--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I couldn't put this book down. Dr. Sadeghi's perspective on weight loss is revolutionary. He shares that our perception of our bodies is one we have created in our own minds -- and each of us have the power to let go of, and re-write this story. Life is an inside job, not an outside job (diets, fads, genetics) and the power of our mind to affect the way we FEEL is our truth. This book is not just for someone looking to lose weight; it's for anyone looking to transform their life. Each chapter gives exercises to reflect upon your own beliefs and circumstances, and the book concludes with a 40-DAY PLAN to elevate your consciousness and awaken to your true essence, and most alive self. Thank you to Dr. Sadeghi for sharing your brilliance. You make happiness and loving your body so accessible to us. ~ Christine

Format: Paperback
Though billed as A Spiritual Awakening to Love and Weight Loss, Dr. Habib Sadeghi’s new book Within is really more a spiritual guide to self-love and self-mastery, with a stellar 40-day weight loss program tossed in as a bonus.

That’s not to say the book fails to address the subtitle it claims; it absolutely does. But, instead of tackling the weight loss issue from the standpoint of calories and cardio, Sadeghi speaks straight to the underlying issues of shame, guilt, self-loathing and self-sabotage that actually inspire weight issues and obesity, while providing practical and accessible explanations, perspectives and exercises that allow the reader to unravel anything and everything that’s keeping her from being her ideal weight, rocking the career of his dreams or finding a soul mate. But, that’s a lot of promises to fit on a paperback spine, as well as an almost absurdly ambitious intention. And so it is that Sadeghi’s book is a spiritual guide to weight loss (and awakening – that part fit).

Contextualized through the mind and experience of a doctor, Sadeghi breaks down a handful of popular spiritual and metaphysical ideas, and applies them to weight, as well as to overall health and happiness.

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it. – Albert Einstein.

Sadeghi tackles the weight issue from the levels of consciousness that contribute to it and gives the reader practical tools, as well as a very clear knowledge base from which to raise their consciousness, their emotional intelligence and their vibration. He touches on beliefs, feelings, the power of words and thoughts, visualization, meditation, affirmations, heart smarts and epigenetics, among a handful of other trendy spiritual topics.

There are things that do make sense...the mediation, some commonsense food advice, caring for yourself.

But too much of this book I ended up rolling my eyes and mumbling to myself that this guy is nuts. Ferment wheat berries to make a carbonated drink? Yeah I'll get right on that...

And he needs an editor..too many typos and errors. And lots of repetition. Lots. The same ideas presented over and over again. A good editor would have helped him distill his message down and present it more concisely. Sometimes more is just more.

The weight loss piece didn't come to the end and again...lots of repetitive steps. The way he lays it out is that every day you have your "core" of meditation, visualization, gratitude, and exercise. Then he adds in two wild-card pieces. Something nutritional (did I mention the fermented wheat berry brew?) and some activity. The nutritional pieces were pretty much different every day. But the activities tended to repeat themselves. Want to talk to your inner child? You will have LOTS of opportunities to set up two chairs facing each other and switch back and forth between the present you and the 8-year-old you. Really.

While I really do agree with some of his life force theories, overall, I was completely not impressed.

Maybe all this stuff is why Gweneth Paltrow (who writes the introduction to the book) is consciously uncoupling?

This is a revolutionary book about letting go of much more than just excess weight. In fact it is about letting go of the negative voices in your head, the self-judgments that plague us, the search for constant improvement, the guilt, resentments and misunderstandings piled up in our psyche. Dr. Sadeghi guides the reader profoundly, yet gently, toward self-love and acceptance, radiant health and inner calm. His understanding that extra weight represents an uncomfortableness in our own skin and that healing from within allows us to be in the world without that barrier resonates deeply and true.

Not focused on weight loss specifically but more about total well-being and the factors that can help (or get in the way). The book has lots of little exercises to help really take in the message/ideas presented

This is NOT a diet book. This is a book to help you better understand yourself and the world we live in. It's both profound and simple. I cannot say enough good things about this book. Don't hesitate: buy!

What a WONDERFUL book! I bought copies for my friends and clients. WITHIN is so powerful, I literally felt like Dr. Sadeghi was speaking right to me.

You know when you read a book, and each day what you're reading stays with you all day long, and you start to connect the dots? This book is INCREDIBLE & does just that. Normally exercises in books annoy me, but these were so revealing, so easy, I loved them.

Now people everywhere can learn what this profoundly gifted, brilliant man is sharing. This man changed my life, my health, and my family's life forever. Without a doubt my favorite book of the year. Oh, and I'm wearing my skinny jeans while pregnant (just unbuttoned!)
