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: •Overcome disempowering beliefs surrounding food and weight loss •Melt away stress •Conquer fears of losing weight •Rediscover the joy of movement •Create healthy new habits •Kill food cravings and addictions •Achieve better sleepJon 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.

About the Author

In 2001 Jon Gabriel weighed 409 pounds. He’d tried almost every popular diet available without success. Overweight, overworked, and unhappy, Jon was ready to give up. Then on September 11, 2001, Jon received a wake-up call. He was scheduled to fly from Newark to San Francisco that day, and it was only by chance that he was not on United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania. This made Jon realize that life was a precious opportunity not to be wasted. He also realized that his weight would eventually kill him, so he decided to do something about it. Over the next two and a half years, Jon lost more than 200 pounds without dieting, pills, or surgery. He also stopped feeling stressed and overworked and started living the life of his dreams. His book The Gabriel Method is an international bestseller with over 350,000 readers worldwide. Learn more at

When it comes to weight loss, the mind is as important as the body. I always say, it’s not just about what you’re eating—it’s also about what’s eating you. In this book, Jon Gabriel teaches simple, practical ways to use your mind to totally transform your body. If you’re heartbroken from failed weight-loss attempts and tired of feeling at war with your body, it’s time for this book. Filled with eye-opening research, powerful tools, and practical tips, it will guide you to harness the power of your mind and body to achieve the weight loss (and life) you want! This book is highly recommended.  I’d also recommend The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution, which is on sale right now on Barnes & Noble. The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution is one book that will definitely change how you look at maintaining your weight loss, including showing you why every diet that you have ever tried, until now, has failed, what your ideal or goal weight should be and how to reach it (you will need it when it comes to Jon Gabriel’s book) and how to avoid making one of the biggest dieting mistakes ever. I kept making it until I found The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution. This book is also a highly recommended book even if you have to borrow it from the public library.
