I have successfully lost weight in the past being mean to myself, hating my body, and punishing myself with very low calories, forbidding any fun, and hard workouts. In the end--I still wasn't happy, or happy with my body, and I even injured my knee pushing too hard in a workout.

The Gurgeviches offer a better way. I love this program. I teach yoga, and these 'self hypnosis' sessions closely resemble guided relaxation and yoga nidra. As proof: today, in line at the grocery store, I picked up the new dark chocolate bar. After a few moments, I put it back! That's HUGE! It's the little things, like really learning to listen to yourself and 'eating whatever you want while reaching and maintaining your perfect weight'.

I work at a health food store, and people constantly spend up to $100 on pills, hoping they'll find the magic one that effortlessly melts the pounds from their body, and in the meantime putting some potentially dangerous stuff in their bodies. Try a healthier, more positive way! With this program you will end up LIKING yourself as well as looking and feeling healthier, which is what it's all about.

Warning: you might just get the magic solution! It really is wonderful to make some of these small choices, like forgoing a candy bar without being deprived. It's a change of paradigm, or just a different way of thinking about food and our relationship with it. I am learning to want the best for myself. Americans can definitely learn more in this department!

The book suggests you read the first three chapters, then you can begin using the cd and finishing the book. It has wonderful inspirational quotes, and background into the history and research behind self-hypnosis. It even has a foreword from Dr.

Before I was hypothyroid never had to worry about my weight, so becoming hypothyroid was a major rude awakening. Where before I could lose weight by cutting out a few sodas and chips each week, after my thyroid problem started, I not only couldn't lose weight, I actually gained weight following stringent diets. It was awful. I was so relieved when I finally was able to start losing weight again, by optimizing my thyroid function, changing what I ate, and adding in supplements and appropriate exercise (an approach I've outlined in detail in my book, The Thyroid Diet: Manage Your Metabolism for Lasting Weight Loss). But that doesn't mean that I don't work at this every single day. I always have more to lose it seems, because it's easy to gain, holidays and wintertime can be setback periods, and I'm by nature not an athletic or active person. So weight loss and management is a lifestyle for me, not just something I can do once and forget about!

So, with all this in mind, I have to say that s Steven and Joy Gurgevich's book/CD, The Self-Hypnosis Diet, is a resource that I consider pretty much indispensable, no matter what type of diet you are following -- helping make any diet successful -- whether you're following my Thyroid Diet, or you're doing Weight Watchers, or Ediets, or low-carbing it, South Beach, or making up your own diet as you go.

I've been using this book and companion CD for more than a year, and I consider it absolutely essential to my ongoing diet and weight loss efforts. Dr.

I've bought hypnosis self-improvement tapes before and soon abandoned them. I was too impatient! This time I've discovered that persistence and repetion is the key. You really can change your subsconscious "tapes" but it is not a quick process. Just hang in there, and repeat, repeat.. As to this book and CD set, I did not find the book very enlightening. If you are completely new to the subject, perhaps you will. However, the CD is GREAT! Mr. G. has one of the most soothing voices I have ever heard from a hypnotist. He does not do very lengthly inductions, which I like. He also has another set of three CDs on Self-Hypnosis for Weight Loss that doesn't come with a book. Those CDs are different from the one that comes with this book and are just as good. If you are really serious, I recommend buying them as well. Good Luck!

This is a wonderful book for anyone whether you need to lose weight or gain weight... or even if you don't need to lose or gain but just need to eat more nutritiously this book is for you. It is wonderful because the focus is on eating foods that are nutritious and healthy... or foods that "support your perfect weight" It's not about dieting at all! And the self-hypnosis Cd in the back of the book helps you crave foods that support a healthy weight and helps you desire portions that are just right for you. If you are at all familiar with Dr Andrew Weil's Anti-Inflammatory Diet you will agree that The Self Hypnosis-Diet Book and Cd wonderfully support it. This book is for everyone... and it works!
