Book Description

Dec 30 2008
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.

    "The most comprehensive and scientifically meaningful method I've ever encountered." ---Jean Bolkelman, M.D. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

    About the Author

    Jon Gabriel has a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Although his background is in finance, he also pursued extensive coursework in biochemistry, organic chemistry, and biology and performed research for the internationally recognized biochemist Dr. Jose Rabinowitz. In 1990, Jon started gaining weight for no apparent reason. He tried every diet and program he could to lose weight but in the end, he just kept gaining. The more he dieted, the more he gained. The situation became critical in mid-2001 when he became morbidly obese and reached a weight of 409 pounds. He wasn’t sleeping well, could hardly reach his shoes to tie them, and had a diminished quality of life that was literally killing him with every breath.

    On September 11, 2001, he was scheduled to fly from Newark to San Francisco, and it was only by a stroke of luck that he was not on the United Airlines flight 93 that was hijacked by terrorists. This event, as well as some equally life-changing events that occurred in the weeks following 9/11, affected him deeply. It was this wake-up call that made him realize life was a precious opportunity not to be wasted. He decided to start living the life of his dreams. He also decided to apply all of his research skills and scientific background toward understanding and eliminating the real reasons for why he was fat. The result is arguably one of the most remarkable physical transformations of all time. Jon lost 225 pounds without dieting and without surgery. Amazingly, his body shows almost no signs of ever being overweight at all—a fact that has astounded many professionals in the medical community.

    After finishing The Gabriel Method, he used his powerful visualization techniques—the power that had brought him a new body and a new lease on life—to bring him an agent that was connected with the very publisher he wanted to work with. Countless letters from fans and those who have used his books continue to pour in, and Jon has received several awards for his work, appeared on radio and television, and continues to use his amazing story to change lives for the better. Jon is an established speaker in Australia and has done many talk shows and events there. He has previously been in contact with Oprah's producers, who had some substantial interest in the astounding message of his work.

    So many people don't realize how much stress they are holding onto from present & past. Jon Gabriel's approach will have different results for everyone as everyone is different. But if you truly follow and stick to his guidance you will have great results. His visualiztions are fantastic. The cd to listen to at night is wonderful! I am recommending his book to all my clients and they are loving it. I personally have benefited greatly from this book and that is why I recommend it so highly.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read July 18 2009
    I was surprised by this book. I have read a dozen weight loss books. This book really deals with the mental side of weight loss. I contains positive visualization techniques. I found myself rereading chapters as the content was a constant reminder on how to change my additude about my body and the way I look at food.

    However you choose to eat to lose weight or eat more healthy, read this book. It's like the lost chapter to every book I have ever read.

    By Linda
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    The problem of obesity is highly complex and needs to be tackled on many fronts: psychological, emotional, physical, spiritual, hormonal and metabolic.
    This method is based on reprogramming your brain to "want to be thin", using tapes of his voice which you have to listen to at night while going to sleep. This method alone is not enough for an obese person to lose weight and keep it off long-term.

    Everyone, whether you need to lose weight or not, should read this book. Dieting will go the way of horse and buggy or steam engines when you read what is in this book. Who would have thought how man's early survival skills could be the cause of so may peoples weight problems!

    An excellent book. Well written. Describes exactly why weight is gained and how to finally remove the excess. I think that everyone who has been unsuccessful in losing weight will finally learn the reasons. That, in itself, makes the book worthwhile, but there is much more adding to the value of the information included! I highly recommend it!
