A Startling New Approach to Weight-Loss and Fitness by One of America’s Most Successful Board Certified Hypnotists.

Have you suffered through too many trendy diet programs without lasting results?

Have you worked yourself to the point of exhaustion in the gym?

Have you ever taken a “miracle” pill to help you lose weight?

Does your weight still fluctuate more than the stock market?

Are you pleading for a weight solution that actually works?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you must read Thinking Thin — a startling new approach to weight-loss and fitness developed by Tom Nicoli, BCH, CI, one of America’s most successful Board-certified hypnotists who has been seen on Dateline NBC and praised by SHAPE Magazine as the “Hippest of the Hyp!”.

Tom has shown thousands of people around the world how to live free from the anguish of obesity — all without the struggle associated with most weight-loss programs and diets. Why put up with dangerous diet pills or waste another day of self-starvation or dreaded workouts when you don’t have to? Make the decision today to embark upon the joyous path to a better you. It all begins with Thinking Thin…

From the Author of Thinking Thin, Tom Nicoli…
If you’ve picked up this book, hoping for a handbook that tells you how to really buckle down and lose all your excess weight in the next 30 days – or sooner – you might as well put it down right now, and grab one of the many others next to it on the shelf. Not that any of those others will work, at least not on a long-term basis, but maybe you’ll feel encouraged by all the promises they make, or perhaps have your sense of guilt alleviated by the pain so many of them will tell you that you must bear (and have been led to believe you certainly deserve). And as for that 30-day promise, I have always felt that promises of a “quick fix” are misleading, if not downright deceptive. Yet we gobble up these promises up, so to speak, because in our society we’ve become accustomed to instant gratification of all our desires. But many of us have found out the hard way, wasting time and money and feeling worse than when we started, that the “quick fix” just doesn’t work for permanent weight control. If you’ve devoted years to training your body to accumulate excess unwanted fat – however unknowingly you may have done so – you simply can’t expect to reverse all that “training” in 30 days or less and automatically maintain the changes. You most likely have done it before and know it just doesn’t work!

If, however, you would like to learn how to lose the weight, get healthier, and improve your sense of well-being – for the rest of your life – without the familiar pain, struggle and constant internal debate making you feel worse about yourself instead of better, this book may well be for you. But enough of the sales pitch…let’s get down to what this book is, why I wrote it, and how it can really help improve your life, while making the pounds go away. It may help you to know that thousands of people in 16 countries have already experienced the results of what you are about to learn.

Here’s the premise: We are the most affluent society in earth’s history, with a standard of living beyond the dreams of most of the planet’s population, and beyond the comprehension of those living just a couple of generations ago. That’s the good news. The bad news is that our butts, bellies, and thighs give clear testament to that affluence. To put it delicately, we are a society of fat people, and that excess weight threatens to offset many of the advances science has made toward allowing us to live longer, healthier, and happier lives.

Granted, some people are obese as a result of genuine physiological dysfunction, such as glandular disorders and the like. For those whose obesity has a medical cause, there is no substitute for professional medical care. But these people are a small fraction of the obese population, and even they would almost certainly benefit from my approach in concert with treatment from their physician.

But back to the premise. First, how did we come to accumulate all the excess weight in unhealthy, unwanted stored fat? More to the point, how can we solve this problem once and for all? We must not be doing something right, because while we feed the weight-loss industry over $38 billion a year, we just continue to get bigger (as does the industry itself!). You would think that, being as how we’re so incredibly affluent, we ought to be capable of spending ourselves thinner, trimmer and healthier. But it just doesn’t work that way, any more than we w
