Publisher's Summary

What's missing from the hundreds of diets on the market to help us achieve healthier bodies? "The most important element," teaches Dr. Steven Gurgevich, "is not in the body, but in your mind." As a key member of Dr. Andrew Weil's physician's training program, Dr. Gurgevich has brought hypnosis to the forefront of modern medicine. With The Self-Hypnosis Diet, he shows that anyone can use medical hypnosis to achieve long-term success in shifting our appetites to healthier foods and reaching our desired weight. With over three hours of instruction for using hypnosis to reduce your appetite, increase your metabolism, remove emotional barriers, and more, plus an "emergency" session to instantly deal with cravings.

Outstanding!

I've found this audiobook very helpful in my efforts to get "jump started" at loosing weight. The hypnotic sessions have helped me tremendously. I am trying to listen to different trance sessions at least twice a day. My motivation is up in just a week, and I am making progress.

Dr. Gurgevich is an exceptionally talented hypnotist and psychologist. He speaks in a sensitive, soothing voice that is in itself theraputic.

I highly recommend this audiobook!

slight disappointment

The author has a pleasant demeanor and voice, but he talks too much on this audiobook--both before, during and after the "trance" sessions. It's hard to believe anyone could actually slip into a trance with his incessant, unfocused chatter. More and better music would improve this audiobook, as would more goal-oriented exercises. The exercises he provides are a bit of a hodge-podge....

Recommended

Highly recommended. With consistency and repetitive usage, this will help you reach your weight goals. There are quite a few hypnosis sessions to choose from. There's also one that you can listen to as you fall asleep.

Great Guide

This book was meant to be an audible book. It was instructive and helpful.

Finally something that works

I have literally tried everything to control my appetite. I had read about this book in a magazine and while unsure how it would work for me I decided to give it a try. I listened to it everynight while I slept and the results have been amazing. I have lost 15 pounds in th past month and my appetite is under control. I would highly recommend it to others, but would caution that you need to listen to it consistently in order to get the results.

Surprisongly effective

As a skeptic who had never tried self-hypnosis, I bought this audiobook to help me make some major changes in my life. My first listen was superficial and I was tempted to dismiss the suggestions as sounding 'cheesy.' But as a seeker of personal growth, I finally gave the program the attention and focus it deserves. After several weeks, I finally realized that my cravings had been lifted and belief that I could succeed moved into my life and the choices I make.

A Lighter Side

I really love the positive reinforcements. Instead of being told how to diet, believe me I'm a veteran, I am given suggestions on how to think and appreciate the vital body I do have. I like the gentleness. I am truly thankful. Oh yes, down 7 pounds in a week is a bonus.

Separate tracks/bookmarks would be helpful

Listening to this on my iPhone using the Audible app, and it's divided into 3 "chapters," one for each disc.
Chapter (disc) 1 is about WHY and HOW hypnotism works. It's great for a listen to once, but then you don't really need it.

Chapter (disc) 2 has 4 trance sessions you're supposed to be moderately aware for. Here's a helpful breakdown of the approximate times each new session starts - I recommend you create a bookmark for each one, so you can skip straight to the session you want.

0:6:00 Changing taste for foods, putting a positive spin on weight loss efforts

0:29:15 Self exploration, why did I gain weight?

0:49:50 Loving yourself

1:06:00 Emergency session - Craving Control

Chapter (disc) 3 has 3 sessions that you can sort of listen to while you do something else, to listen to during particular times of the day. The section titles should be self-explanatory.

4:25 Morning Motivation

25:00 Before Dinner

41:00 Bedtime Hypnosis

Hope this helps you utilize this program a little better! :) Other than the issue with all the sessions being smooshes into one big chapter, I like this audiobook. Dr. Gurgevich has a very soothing voice, and is helpful about carefully framing the suggestions so your subconscious will accept them and do what you actually want them to do. I've only been using this a few days so I can't really speak as to if it "works," but I do feel more optimistic about my weight loss journey after listening to this tape.

If you've struggled - try this!

I have struggled with weight loss motivation for 25 years. This audiobook has made it effortless for me. I have lost 16lb in 5 weeks and most important, it has changed my whole attitude towards food and myself - I feel so positive all the time. I only wish I had tried it years sooner!
A hint - choose one color forever, not a different one each day.
