Publisher's Summary

Placing conditions on our lives and our happiness has become the norm: We must establish a career before looking for a relationship. We must find love before feeling fulfilled. We must feel stressed out until we finish everything on our to-do list. But by far, the most common conditions we put on ourselves revolve around our weight - no love until we lose the weight, no pursuing a dream until we lose the weight, no happiness until we lose the weight.

But now there’s a better option.

Using tapping, also known as EFT, Jessica Ortner walks you through a process that helps you drop stress so you can drop pounds - without dieting, deprivation, or extreme exercise. Using her own struggles with weight loss, along with success stories of some of the thousands of women she’s worked with, Jessica teaches you not only the basics of tapping but also how to use it to address the deeper facets of your weight and self-worth challenges. Plus she teaches you to overcome some of the most common weight loss obstacles. Say good-bye to the cravings, panic, and self-doubt that keep you in a constant fight against your body!

Amazing resource

This book is really amazing. Jessica gets to the heart of the real issues behind a struggle with weight.

Personally, I didn't expect to be able to relate to all of the issues in this book since I am not technically overweight (my problem being that I fluctuate between being obsessed with getting 'skinny' and taking time off from doing any kind of exercise). In spite of this, I decided to go ahead and do all of the exercises as they came up anyway. While doing these exercises, I soon realized that all of the issues covered do apply to me - the behavior was just so engrained that I failed to recognize it upon first sight. As a result, I learned a lot about myself and was able to really examine my relationship with my body.
I just finished the book but I am fairly certain I am on my way to a much healthier self-image and relationship with food and exercise.

Jessica does mispronounce one or two words and there are a few times when music plays awkwardly but these are only minor distractions.

I highly recommend this book to women of all ages. If you are a woman, chances are our society's obsession with thinness is affecting you in some way and you will be better off after examining the impact it has had on your life and using Jessica's exercises to release this pressure.

Transforming!!

This is NOT just about weight loss, it's about self-love....which is the root of true joy anyway. I've listened once and plan to listen again and again. My future is bright and I can feel the beginnings of true self-acceptance that I don't think I've ever experienced in my entire life. I can't recommend this book enough. EVERYONE should experience it.

Like listening to your beloved best friend

Would you consider the audio edition of The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence to be better than the print version?

Well, not in my case as I use to come back and read again certain pieces of the text, I use to highlight parts and put bookmarks and with the audio is tremendously difficult. I wish I knew the whispersync service before buying also the kindle version. Yes, I've bought this book twice as as I also like to "read" books while I'm driving by using the audiobook.

What other book might you compare The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence to and why?

I do not know of other books on the subject. I simply bought this one as I loved Jessica's speeches in the World Tapping Summit and recently I started to have some emotional eating issues so I guessed that she would be of help also in this subject.

What about Jessica Ortner’s performance did you like?

The calmness of her voice, the warm and comforting tone of her voice, the confidence, sometimes fun listening peaks and also the feeling you have that she's not lecturing you but speaking from the very bottom of her soul to you.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Well, no, it was overall calming, soothing and illuminating. I felt not crazy but understood a lot of things of myself, and not alone in the world with this problem.

Any additional comments?

Hope to see Jessica deliver some other great books! If I could met her, I will thank her personally and give her a big hug. :-)

Not a good audio book

What would have made The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence better?

This book has a lot of really good information but it is not a good choice for an audio book since they do not provide all of the tapping scripts separately either as a mP3 or as a document. You will need to go back to them over and over in order to get the results and trying to find them in the book is difficult.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jessica Ortner again?

I would probably not listen but i would buy the books or kindle edition

Have you listened to any of Jessica Ortner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Same

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence?

None

Any additional comments?

Maybe if the whisper sync was available this might work better

Life changing ~ life saving!

Is it possible that a lifetime of pain and hopelessness could be healed with the words of knowing from one wise soul? I dare to say, I now believe it could.
I know there is much work to be done, and I am willing to do it. I've always been willing to do it, if only I had known how an what to do. With the encouragement of your book, dear Jessica, a new day has dawned, filled with promise.
God bless you for the courage to share your story with those of us who have lived it.

So very helpful

If you could sum up The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence in three words, what would they be?

Ok I can't do anything in three words. But I found this book insightful and so much more than a 'weight loss book.' This is a 'look deeper into the issues why you are overweight and unhappy about it' book. Do I necessarily believe it is the tapping that is helping me? Honestly, no but it doesn't matter.

By tapping you are taking time every day to dig into your issues and feel them, accept them and release them. Is this new stuff? Nope. What is new to me is that by tapping I actually do all the emotional work my therapist has been trying to get me to do for the past year.

10 minutes a day, twice a day and I am facing the root causes of deep seeded anxiety and I am making real progress. I highly recommend this book.

What other book might you compare The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence to and why?

I've never read another book like this before.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I both laughed and cried. Ok, I didn't sob or anything but there were times where she would hit a little closer to home than I was ready and I would well up. But to me that is what makes this book as helpful as it is.

Any additional comments?

The only distraction for me is that Jessica Ortner mispronounces words all the time. Plus she uses the word 'often' all the time. I might not notice the latter while reading but in an audiobook it stands out like a sore thumb. Given she pronounces the 't' in 'often,' it especially stands out.

A MUST-READ

As someone who has spent most of her life searching endlessly for answers to her battle with weight, body image and emotional eating, I wish I had read Jessica Ortner’s book FIRST. While I had heard of tapping, I had always resisted it bc it seemed weird to me. I’m so happy I was able to put that aside and purchase this book, and I worry others may be missing out on Jessica’s incredible insights if they’re turned off by the tapping aspect of it. I cannot stress enough: EVEN IF YOU’RE UNFAMILIAR WITH OR UNSURE ABOUT TAPPING, this is the THE ONLY BOOK IVE FOUND THAT COVERS THE SEEMINGLY INFINITE/OVERWHELMING ARRAY OF FACTORS & EMOTIONS THAT COMBINE TO CREATE WEIGHT PROBLEMS UNIQUE TO WOMEN.

It was SUCH A RELIEF to start each new chapter and hear Jessica articulate YET ANOTHER set of questions, feelings and experiences I’ve had but never been able to (or heard others) put into words. Most books about mental & physical health focus on ONE explanation, solution or strategy in an attempt to give a simple, definitive answer to complex problems (which often backfires and leaves readers feeling MORE lost when we’re left to reconcile all the disjointed (or blatantly contradictory) explanations and advice out there. Ortner instead covers the ENTIRE gamut of the subtle, unseen cultural, evolutionary, physiological, psychological and spiritual factorsthat snowball into a complex body image/emotional eating problem that feels impossible to untangle. And while she does some “untangling” complete with citations of scientific data and expert interviews, she does something I’ve never seen another author do: she helps the reader let go of the need to fully understand and fix all of these problems, but instead, acknowledge them, process the self-blame and shame they’ve caused us, and then move on.

Moreover, her tone is wonderful: informative yet caring, assured yet humble, and profound yet humorous, as she weaves anecdotes from her and her students’ lives throughout the book where applicable. She makes the reader’s journey through the revelations in each chapter feel like you have a new best friend or therapist at your side, explaining the detective work she has done to help you feel better. Even her voice is pleasant, and I’m glad I opted for the audio version of this book so she can guide me thru the tapping exercises in her soothing way.

Thank you Jessica for writing a book that helps women to addresses tough, often invisible issues so we can release them, heal and be free.

Very helpful and inspiring

This was a great book to listen to. I loved the mediations and thought that all of the major points applied to my own life and my current struggles with weight. I am a tapping beginner and I think that it is something that I will continue to use throughout my life. Thank you for the book Jessica!

How I shop

First of all I want to tell you how I came to purchase this book. I had only heard of tapping in passing and thought it was tapping on the desk to be honest. Anyway I had 4 credits so I spent hours in the online book store deciding on which self help or personal development books I would buy. Lots made it to my wish list then to my basket only to be replaced by another title. Finally I listened to the sample and was first won over by the easy to listen to voice and your sample intro. I have already started following gut health guidelines after several courses of antibiotics. For many years I have searched relentlessly for a solution to my weight accumulation and while I had winning diets over the years, I have struggled to maintain the loss. I am very great full for the information in this book. It has given me incite why I know what to do and what is healthy but still struggle. Am I really just ‘weak’? Thanks Jessica for your lovely calm reading and instructions. I look forward to benefitting over the coming months and look forward to adding a PS of my success. If I am allowed to edit my post.

Jessica has really nailed it

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I've been studying EFT for a short time and I also struggle with my weight in that I find it hard to let go of the last 7 kilos. I have tried lots of different methods and I have realized through Jessica's book that it is all psychological. The reasons we eat and what we eat has more to do with our brain than with our hunger. Jessica talks thoroughly about the reasons we want to hold on to our weight and what we can do to control these feelings.

What did you like best about this story?

All of it

What about Jessica Ortner’s performance did you like?

Jessica's way of communicating is straight forward and to the point. She uses real case examples which explains how EFT has helped. She also gives the EFT scripts in her book and explains how to tap effectively and what to say, which I sometimes am lost for words.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

You want to lose weight, look inside your mind.

Any additional comments?

By reading Jessica's book, I have utilized EFT for other areas of my life which I need to clear. I loved the way she explains EFT point by point in a way that is concise and easy to follow.

Great informative read

Jessica, I really enjoyed the content, the research and the delivery of this book. I found a great understanding and empathy in your beautifully narrated book. You really nailed the struggles woman have to the perception of ourselves. Even though I listened to you while in the car and going for my daily walks, and couldn’t really do the tapping, I still found myself repeating the tapping technique and doing it in my head as you lead, I have found solace in your voice and your genuine feeling of understanding.
Thankyou.

Jessica is my female version of Wayne Dyer...

Wayne Dyer has been my literary mentor for years .. so inspired by his amazing ability to put language to the thoughts in my head and make sense of everything I flew overseas to attend his seminar "I am light" before he passed. Jessica has filled the void Wayne left (for me) with a wisdom and gift for explaining psychology, weight issues, health, wellbeing and of course, tapping so eloquently yet accessible to the mainstream public. You are a amazing Jessica .. I listen to both your books on Audible regularly - thanks for making my drive to work so inspirational! Michelle from NZ

The Best Book I've listened to

What made the experience of listening to The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence the most enjoyable?

The content was excellent and the narration was great. I prefer when the author narrates their own work.

What other book might you compare The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence to, and why?

The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins. Excellent content, case studies and narration by the author

What does Jessica Ortner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She has a very hypnotic way of speaking and you make a connection with the person and what she's trying to bring to the world

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes. It was so relevant and respectful.

Any additional comments?

The only thing I found was when doing some of the tapping the sequence finished abruptly and the next section or chapter started immediately.

Amazing book on tapping

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss & Body Confidence?

It has opened my mind in many ways and has really helped me understand how I can cultivate a more loving relationship with myself. Jessica explains and taps through many of the limiting beliefs and past experiences that may be playing a part in your weight issues.

Any additional comments?

I read "The Tapping Solution" first and found this book to be an excellent companion to delve deeper into my weight loss journey. You do not need to read "The Tapping Solution" by Nick Ortner to get the most out of this book, but I highly recommend it as a starting place. It went through the very basics of using tapping on everything from stopping a head ache to overcoming childhood traumas and by the time I had finished it, I read this book from a more open and willing place.
