An Important Note from Paul McKenna

How would you like to eat whatever you want whenever you want and still lose weight?

I know that seems like an outrageous claim, and it's true.

The simple weight-loss system you are about to learn has created a revolution in England, where millions of people are using it. Now it's arrived in America, where it is really needed.

We live in a culture of obsessive dieting and exercise addiction, yet recent studies have shown that two thirds of the population of the United States is currently overweight. What's gone wrong? A growing army of medical doctors has been compiling more and more evidence that proves what I've known for years:

Diets are the enemy of weight loss!

The overwhelming scientific evidence shows that diets work for less than 10 percent of the people who use them. The problem is that the vast majority of people who come off a diet end up putting on more weight than before they went on it. And diets are not just a symptom of the problem-they are a significant part of its cause. I am completely serious when I say that there is a better case for banning diets than banning smoking when we consider the health consequences to America. I am on a mission to help the world lose weight and to make the process as easy as possible. My system is so simple you may find it difficult at first to believe how quickly it will work. That's because you have been brainwashed by the dieting industry to believe that weight loss is difficult, and it's not. If it's difficult, you're doing something wrong. Here is all you need to do to begin using what millions of people agree is the simplest weight loss system in the world:

1. Read this book. It will take you approximately two hours.
2. Follow the instructions.
3. Use the hypnosis CD every day for two weeks.
4. Notice your eating patterns change and the weight drop off.

It's that simple!

Recently I met a lady who attended one of my seminars and lost a considerable amount of weight. She told me that she was angry. When I asked her why, she said it was because she had spent years torturing herself with diets and feeling like a failure. In fact, she'd added up all the money she'd spent on diets, weight-loss programs, and special foods, and it came to nearly twenty thousand dollars. If only she'd known how easy weight loss really is, she could have saved herself all that money and years of unnecessary stress.

Much of what I am about to say will fly in the face of what you've done in the past and what you think is "right." You've tried other methods of weight loss and they didn't work or they only worked temporarily. No matter what you've tried before, it's time to do something radically different. The exact same approach that I am about to share with you has helped millions of people to lose weight easily and feel significantly better about themselves. In fact, two independent research studies into the effectiveness of my system showed that what you are about to learn is seven times more effective than any diet.

Now it's your turn!

To your good health.

--Paul McKenna

The Weight-Loss Hypnosis CD

Your mind is like a computer -- it has its own software, which helps you to organize your thinking and behavior. Having worked with all sorts of people with different problems over many years, I have learned that almost all problems stem from the same cause: negative programs running in the unconscious mind. This book comes with a powerful hypnosis CD that will fill your unconscious mind with positive willpower. While you become absorbed into a natural state of relaxation, I will reprogram your computer -- your unconscious mind -- so that you will change the way you think about food and feel better about yourself. I will give you suggestions that will help you to change your behavior, eat better, speed up your metabolism, and escape from the fixation with food. It's best to listen to it when you have about a half hour where you can safely relax completely. As you listen to it regularly, you will reinforce all the changes you are making. In fact, it will make it much easier to stick to the golden rules I share with you in this book. The latest research into the effectiveness of these and similar techniques has shown that listening to this CD over and over again, every day, will dramatically enhance your ability to lose weight. You don't have to believe it, only use it.
