Slim: Ultimate Weight Loss Hypnosis audiobook cover art

yes and no

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

I cannot really say that this is hypnosis as much as it is instruction. But the instruction is positive. Many of the hypnosis programs out there use negative words like don't or no and even words like fat and ugly. The mind doesn't hear the words don't or no which can cause what the hypnotist is saying to be destructive not helpful. So, even though this is not hypnosis it is positive and that is good. I do not like his intake of air in this it freaks me out a bit but that is me. I know that it is a recording and that takes training or sophisticated editing. I do not like that he wakes people at the end instead of letting them sleep. I would recommend it for at least one listen.

It has been shown that negative words like Not, No and Don't are not heard by the mind during hypnosis and often in reading. Also, using negative words like 'terrible' are imprinted just as much as positive words like happiness. In this program Lewis uses both but I think that he uses more positive than negative so I liked it. I would change is that he wakes us up widely at the end but I would like to sleep at this time. Overall I personally liked it.

I wish that Audible would let us hear the meat of the program before buying. It has been shown in hypnosis that the mind does not hear words like Not or No. So when he says 'through with fat' the mind only hears fat. Laing uses a lot of negative words here. If I counted how many times he says "Fat" I am sure that it is over 20 maybe close to 50. These negative words like ugly are terrible words to be pumped into the mind during the relaxed state. How about the word thin, healthy or beautiful instead? He does have some positive but there is so much negative I am concerned that it will make people worse.

I like the sound and voice but he uses a lot of negative words such as 'Not' and No' it has been show that is hypnosis that the mind does not recognize these words so when he says 'Not anxiety' the mind hears 'anxiety' or 'alcohol is No longer needed for you'. The mind hears alcohol is longer needed. If he did this only once or twice I would say that is is probably okay but the there is more about what Not to do instead of what to do. No control. Punish & Poison. All of these words are being pumped into you mind instead of health, happiness, freedom success. I am concerned that Bonetti's programs will make people worse.

Not worth 1 star. I am wondering if this 'doctor' has ever listened to a hypnosis CD. It was simply terrible. I feel bad for anyone that has a real problem with depression, seeking help and waste their time with this. I hope that it doesn't hurt anyone it is so poor.
