Author Jon Gabriel uses his own remarkable transformation--from 409 pounds to 184 pounds--to show the solution to changing the inner belief systems that keep our bodies from thin.

The pile of recent dieting books is growing faster than the average American's waistline. From the well-known programs that deprive and restrict to ones that rely on juice alone, it seems that everybody has an answer to the growing problem of obesity.

When Jon Gabriel's life took an unexpected turn, he suddenly was awakened to the marvelous gift that he had been given -- the opportunity to live -- and was disgusted at how he had treated his body. At over four hundred pounds, walking, sleeping, and working was a struggle against gravity, and his life was a constant battle between emotional and physical satiation. He was slowly killing himself with food.

Like the estimated 58 percent of Americans, and rising numbers in other countries, Jon was trapped in what he came to call the FAT - Famine and Temperature - trap. By studying biochemistry, Gabriel learned that your body has an internal logic that determines how fat or thin you will be at any given time. The way to lose weight is not to struggle or to force yourself to lose weight but to understand this internal logic and work with it so that your body wants to be thinner. When your body wants to be thinner, weight loss is inevitable and becomes automatic and effortless. You simply crave less food, you crave healthier foods, your metabolism speeds up and you become very efficient at burning fat, just like a naturally thin person. And that's the real transformation -- to transform yourself into a naturally thin person, so that you can eat whatever you want whenever you want and still be thin, fit, and vibrantly healthy.

After reading The Gabriel Method , you will learn:
-Your body has a reason why it's holding on to weight--and it's not your fault.
-Fat is a cushion--a protective barrier that our mind believes is helping to protect us.
-If you can change that belief, you can change your body; Stop the cycle of crash dieting and start eating what you want, when you want it.
-How to choose healthy, nutritious foods that nourish the cells in your body, not starve them.
-Delicious shakes and smoothies, and super-power supplements, that can jump start your success.
-The simple way you can train your mind and body to work with your goal of health, not against it.
-Eliminate the emotional and mental reasons your body holds on to weight in just 10 minutes a day.

It certainly worked for Jon; he lost 225 pounds in two-and-a-half years, going from 409 pounds to 184, without suffering, dieting, or anguishing over his body. Unlike most people who lose an extensive amount of weight, his skin tightened up and now is indistinguishable from that of a person who has been healthy his whole life.

Truly a revolution (revelation?) in weight management. Not a diet, not really psychological, it focuses on how our instinctive minds overrule our logical minds when it comes to weight control and how to reprogram that part of our minds. Personally, I had one of those 'epiphany' moments - saw the error in my thinking and adjusted. I've lost 6 lbs. in 3 weeks from just reading the book - and that includes an indulgent Thanksgiving day feast and a leftovers day feast! This is powerful stuff!

The essence of this book is that you will not be successful at losing weight unless you can convince your subconscious that being thin is safer than being fat. As long as your subconscious equates security with being fat, it will sabotage all of your efforts to lose weights, including, but not limited to, influencing your metabolic rate. There are many reasons why you may subconsciously believe that it safer to be fat, and Gabriel tries to address as many as he can, with strategies to circumvent those reasons. Once you can align your subconscious with your conscious, Gabriel states that it becomes easy to lose weight.
