The Gabriel Method – A Revolutionary Way To Lose Weight
Jon Gabriel lost 220 pounds (102 Kg) in two years. His book, The Gabriel Method, was the first one that I read when I started to look for a different thing so as to put under control my issue with weight once and for all. When I am asked about this book, I like to say that the information within it saved my life. Some people answer that I might be exaggerating but, I know how I was feeling by the time and the strange things I had started to experience all around my body. The book explains in a comprehensive and easy-to-follow manner the theory and practice of a non-diet way of living. It unveils the true nature of numerous well spread myths and lies in which I believed myself and offers information that is not disseminated so frequently and extensively. Furthermore, the book is written with sincerity and many personal details. I connected with his story straightaway; I had gone through several of the anecdotes and sufferings that he tells in the book. I thought “he knows what he is talking about. And if he had finally succeeded, I can do it as well!”. It is a book encouraging and motivational.
The main tenet of The Gabriel Method is that the body must achieve a state of security; otherwise, it will not lose weight. You will continue exhausting yourself with diets and exercise but your body will not respond to your efforts and weight loss will not naturally occur. Thus, it’s really important that you and your body find ways to feel safe.
To this end, Jon Gabriel suggests several good tips such as visualization. For him, the psychological component is as crucial as your eating habits. Your feelings and thoughts determine to a large extent whether you feel safe or not. Also, he helps you to learn to identify very harmful, hidden ingredients which are present even in foods that you thought you knew very well already; in addition, he explains how eating “empty calories” sabotages your weight loss and teaches you how to identify them as well.
If I Have To Mention One Negative Point…
I would say that the only not-so-positive thing that I have to mention is that if you are a scientist or an expert on nutrition you may find some missing references and data you don’t agree with.
But, overall, I recommend this book for anyone who have had weight issues for a long time and have tried several diets, but now is looking for something different that ends the problem once and for all. I’ve gone through the pain of trying diet after diet for almost 20 years and I can say that this book helped me to break away from such a torturing and frustrating paradigm.
