I have lost 83 pounds and have kept it off. It has been the greatest bit of knowledge I have ever learned.”
Exactly three years ago I started the Gabriel Method. I have lost 83 pounds and have kept it off. It has been the greatest bit of knowledge I have ever learned.
Because of my improved health and stamina, I went to London two years ago and had a great time. I am returning to London in September for a three week genealogy research trip. This is something I would have never been able to do pre-Gabriel.
In my lifetime, I have lost huge amounts of weight only to put it right back on. I even lost 140 pounds in 1991 and gained it all back in 1992.
I've been told that a woman post menopause couldn't lose weight.....totally not true!!
I was told, by an M.D., that I could eat ANYTHING I wanted, just not eat after 7 pm. It amazes me on how much the medical community doesn't know about nutrition!!!
Weight Loss: 38kg (84lbs)
“We feel great and people tell us we look great too.”
I ‘knew’ that it was common for metabolism to slow down in postmenopausal women and had unconsciously accepted this as indisputable fact, believing that weight gain was inevitable.
When I heard about how the Gabriel Method worked, it immediately resonated with me, because I am convinced that our brains and mindpower are currently grossly undervalued. When I read about visualizing for weight loss, I knew I had hit the jackpot.
The idea of losing weight without effort, without strenuous exercise, by adding nutrients rather than focussing on denial, held huge appeal. So after reading the book I started listening to the Evening Visualization at bedtime. My husband George was automatically subjected to listening as well. After he lost 9kg (20 lbs) and was looking very trim and youthful, his doctor told him he shouldn’t lose any more weight. As I had more weight to shed than he, I now have the visualization on my ipod and still enjoy listening to it, as I feel it helps promote better sleep as well as addressing issues around weight.
We were travelling around Australia and this free and easy lifestyle made it easier to change our eating habits. I listened to my first visualization in May, in Gympie, north of Brisbane and by the time we reached Darwin, 4 and a half months later, I decided to weigh myself for the first time. Initially, I was a little disappointed that I had only shed 7 1/2 kg (16.5 lbs), until my husband pointed out that this equated to 7 1/2 of the large tubs of the yoghurt we enjoy for breakfast. On making it back to Brisbane by Christmas, 7 1/2 months later, I had to buy some more clothes as I was down to a size 10 from a size 16.
The big omission in my nutrition studies was that I didn’t know that your body triggers the hunger response specifically for nutrients and that if you provide it the nutrients early in the day you won’t be hungry later. I’m not actually hungry in the evenings now, it is just habit and for camaraderie to serve up something to nibble. I don’t believe fruit is the enemy; enjoying fresh fruit for breakfast satisfies sweet cravings.
For 6 months this process had cost me nothing since the purchase of the book, which I actually found at a neighbour’s garage sale, but I then joined the Support Group and have reaped many benefits from this. Once you lose some weight, introducing exercise becomes a pleasure. I laugh joyfully during the 4 minutes of Tabata exercise Support Group Fitness Coach Brian has introduced us to, and my doctor was pleased that I was doing his hip exercises. On our travels we enjoyed many scenic walks, and flexibility exercises in the morning are no longer a chore. Having access to the SG visualization archives is wonderful, and I see that so many of them can benefit people I know. As well as helping myself, I have been able to help others and I love to tell people about the Gabriel Method for losing weight.
It was obvious to our friends when we returned that we had lost a significant amount of weight. I had lost 12 1/2 kilos (28 lbs) and my husband 9. We feel great and people tell us we look great too. Although I have more weight to release before achieving the body in my photo (when I was 28), I know it will continue to drop off without any effort or worry on my part.
"I lost 61 kg ... your books' secrets changed me and my life"

I Couldn't be Happier!"
My first step was to embrace compliments. From the moment I had this realization, I took it upon myself to force myself to say "Thank you"and smile whenever I got a compliment. And trust me, when you're losing weight and EVERYONE is noticing, you really do get used to it fast.... I couldn't be happier!

"I Lost 51 Kilos in About Six Months"
I lost 113 pounds (51 kilos) in about six months and I've kept it off now for over a year. Also my blood sugar levels went from a dangerously high 19 down to 6. I'm now within the normal range. They say I still have diabetes but I don't think so.

"I Have Never Felt this Happy in My Life Before"
It has been exactly as you say on the CD. I listen to it and say "that is so true".
How can I thank you for your dedication and years of research. Without it, I'm sure my life would still suck and I'd still look abnormal!
I know by December I'll have a flat stomach, good arms and my ideal body. Then we will really celebrate.

"I Was Losing Weight Without Much Effort"
Every night I would visualize my body exactly the way I wanted to look. It wasn’t hard work; in fact, I was losing weight without much effort. After a few weeks, my blood pressure was within the normal range and my kidney levels had also come down. Jon’s method helped me have another two years of freedom off dialysis and effortlessly I lost another 53 lbs (24 kg).

"A new you, instantly"
I purchased Jon Gabriel’s preloaded visualization MP3 player and immediately started using it nightly. I think this tool has been the feather that tipped the scales to success in my weight loss efforts. Jon’s visualizations help your brain associate with fitness, ease of weight loss, being your ideal body weight. Do them and your brain helps you “match" your visualizations with what you see in the mirror.
Since getting into Jon’s programs, I learned about detoxing, insulin resistance, leptin resistance and many other things that I consider priceless.
By all means, I highly recommend Gabriel Method training. Begin implementing his programs. They work! You create a new you, instantly.

"...Best Investment in Myself I've Ever Made"
It's not a diet, it's not a quick fix, it's not difficult at all... I have found several of your nutritional suggestions to be both reasonable and delicious. I have lost roughly 5 inches off my stomach, and inches off other places as well.
I love seeing people that I haven't seen in a while, because they all tell me how great I look, and ask me what my secret is... it is the best investment in myself I've ever made.

"I'm Now Slimmer than I Was When I Was a Teenager"
I have struggled with my weight for years, and thanks to a low self-esteem I have never been able to gain my ideal body. Until someone suggested I read your book.
Until then I had no idea of the impact a change in mental attitude could have to weight loss. I began doing the meditation and activities every night and just months later I have lost a total of 37lbs and 20.5 inches. I'm now slimmer than I was when I was a teenager, and I feel amazing and it's all down to you, your CD and your book.

"I Used To Wear A Size 44 Inch Pants..."
Thank you for your book, it is fantastic. My weight was 116 kgs and today I weigh 75 kgs, in six months!
I used to wear a size 44 pants, and now I'm down to a 30, which are even kinda loose for me. About a year ago I bought a pair of slim jeans, and this has been the motivation for me to lose weight - I really believe I'll fit into them soon.

"I feel like I have a future full of hope and happiness."
It makes sense!!! After only a month I've noticed a significant change in my moods and it's helping with my chronic muskuloskeletal pain (Tension Myositis Syndrome) and my migraines are not as painful and less frequent.
I started at 178 lbs but have not weighed myself since. I took Jon's advice and put the scale away for now. For me it's about feeling better - the weightloss is just a bonus!!!! My husband Brian has enjoyed this process as well. Now, Brian understands what he is doing and more importantly WHY. The selling point: No Deprivation. I feel like I have a future full of hope and happiness. Thank you Jon and the Gabriel Method Team. You are changing the world. God Bless You!
I have lost 83 pounds and have kept it off. It has been the greatest bit of knowledge I have ever learned.”
I have been telling anyone who will listen. And I have not yet lost a pound, but I was able to see how stressful my life had become, and how badly I have damaged myself from dieting for 40 years....and I am only 52. I have been working for months to understand the concept of nourishing my metabolism into a healthy balance, without success. Then a friend recommended Jon’s book.
I jumped in a few weeks ago, into every program of Jon’s that I could. I had a chance to speak to Jon and as I began to tell him my frenzied story, he stopped me, and helped me see why I am stuck, and assured me that we would figure out the details. I was pretty stunned to see how genuine he is about finding solutions for his clients. The visualizations have been very helpful to me. I already meditate, and Jon’s audio visualizations have opend a new realm for me, of safety and peace. I am documenting my journey. I do not have a massive success story yet. But I will, just as soon as some details are ironed out in my mind and body. I hope to be a great success story to guide my friends and loved ones to a true source of wellness.

“The fear of gaining the weight back is gone, replaced with an understanding of how my body and mind work.”)
I am a 51 year young woman and have been overweight since my university years. Really obese since 1999. I’ve weighed 150 – 155kg most of my life, losing a couple of kgs and then gaining that and more. I could never understand why I could not lose the weight – I’m an intelligent person with a nursing degree, a lot of willpower, but nothing ever worked.
I was absolutely gob-smacked after reading the 1st three sentences of your book and by the end of chapter 1, I just broke down and cried. When my husband asked me what was wrong with me, all I could get out was that it was not my fault! The years of self hate/criticism just all came rushing out. This was Feb 2014. I have since lost 38kg and feel fantastic. The fear of gaining the weight back is gone, replaced with an understanding of how my body and mind works.
I am enjoying the meditations very much and can’t wait each day for the next one. Words cannot begin to say how much your book has meant to me. Thank you so much.

"To our perfect life!"
One week down and loving the Case Study program, especially the visualizations. Thank you for taking the time to create this program.
My session with Brian Killian was just what I needed. I was a little overwhelmed with the food choices, especially how to incorporate the big 3 into meals and snacks, when I would have normally just eaten just veggies and fruit. Talking to Brian was amazing, he helped me work out that I wasn't eating enough protein, so I could immediately work with that. I felt very connected and he gave me plenty of suggestions and made sense. He suggested the genetically thin visualisation and it is amazing, as the 'ideal me' steps into my cells I tingle in delight!!
I was a little anxious going into the weekend as we had a very heavy social agenda of two restaurant meals (including a degustation!!) and a dinner party lunch. Normally after a weekend like this I would have added two kilos. This morning I weighed the exact same as I weighed on Friday morning. Amazing! I was less interested in the food and even left a lot of food on my plate. It was no big deal. My husband asked me this morning if I was taking an appetite suppressant!! He is so used to me cleaning my plate.
Thank you. I have always loved my life, but now I am looking forward to the weeks and months ahead when I can run and dance on the beach.
To our perfect life!

"I found my self-confidence growing"
I had given up on trying to lose weight. I had lost a lot of weight a number of times before only to gain it back again. I reached a point of absolute despair. I was either going to lose the weight or my life.
In January 2012, I decided to fight for my life. This time I wanted to change my life, not only lose weight. I wanted answers to why I kept on regaining the weight. I did research on the internet and came across The Gabriel Method.
After reading Jon’s book and listening to the evening visualization CD, I found my self-confidence growing. I started wanting to exercise and my food choices changed. As of January 2013, I have lost 54 kg (119 lbs). I am confident that I will reach my goal weight by the end of of 2013.
Jon and his staff are my go-to guys and I am always learning and discovering new things through their website. I am eternally grateful to Jon and his staff for their unselfish love and care for us. Thank you and God Bless.

"...my Body Did What it Did to Protect Me!"
Your story of how you grew to be bigger than your business partner enabled me to realize that I had done the same thing.
My father was a big man, probably 110-120 kgs, so in an effort to protect myself, my mother and my brother, I grew to be 140 kgs. I also realized that I was using my fat to physically distance myself from my father's rage. I am still dumbfounded that my body did what it did to protect me.

"I Look Forward to Getting my New Body"
The hardest thing now is for me to not run over to family and friends and preach about how their eating all the time is causing their FAT programs to switch on etc.
I look forward to achieving my new body in a few months, and hopefully spreading the word, to people who are ready to hear it.

"I feel so good inside that I'm almost bursting out of my skin."
My belt now does up 3 notches further in; my pants are all baggy and horrible looking (but I still wear them!); my chins have reduced in number and my puffy cheeks are de-puffing too. I LOVE it. And even better .... I feel so good inside that I'm almost bursting out of my skin.
I have gone from a size 22 to a size 18 between December 2012 and April 2013. Still losing and noticing big changes in my body shape. Especially my arms which have never before reduced in size with diet or exercise.
My eternal gratitude for your support!

"...it Was a Breeze"
The visualization CD helped me to sleep better at night, and after just one week, I knew that my body was losing weight.
I have lost 66 lbs (30 kgs) so far. Once the 'switch' was turned off, it was a breeze; the first 26 kgs came off in 26 weeks. Incredibly, this has been one of the easiest tasks I have ever completed, yet it has come with so many benefits. It is no understatement to say that The Gabriel Method has changed my life."

I am living proof of your book's success. Whoever asks how I lost my weight, which as you know are quite a few people, I have told them about your book ... everyone is amazed and lots of people don't recognize me. So again thank you!

"I feel so in control of my life now"
I'm writing today 13 kg lighter and feeling so well! I can now fit into every garment in my wardrobe, things I have not fit into for two years. My cholesterol level has come down two points. I feel so in control of my life now.
I think a huge part of it was, one day I was driving and it suddenly hit me, I no longer needed to protect myself, as I am safe. In my waking moments, I now hear you in my head saying 'your body wants to be thin'. At present I am losing about a kilo per week and well and truly still going. I am eating nutritious food and craving nothing! Thank you for not keeping all this research to yourself.

"I Have Taken Around 8 Inches off My Waistline"
Here are some of my photos, the first one is from 10/10/08 and the second one is from 3 months later, 1/13/09.
In that time I have taken around 8 inches off my waistline and dropped from 265 lbs. to 225 lbs. It's as if weight loss is only a small, but such a crucial part of my transformation. I am really feeling so different. Like never before.

"The Gabriel Method worked, plain and simple"
I have been doing the method since last year but I truly worked out what it was all about 2 months ago. I now feel as though the FAT switch has really turned. I am a London cab driver, so I go long hours without exercise. I have lost 10kg in 2 months with absolutely no exercise!
I started The Gabriel Method in April of 2008 when I weighed about 280 lbs (127 kgs). Since then I've lost 50 kgs and I feel great!
I think The Gabriel Method simply reminded my body that it should be youthful at age 16. When I look at photos of the 'old me' I can hardly recognize myself. If I were to go back in time right now, I'd think I had a long-lost older brother with a bad ass pony tail!

"As of August 8th 2011, my 48th birthday, I have maintained my 60lb (27kgs) weight loss for a year!!"
Last May 2009, I was diagnosed with Insulin Resistance Syndrome and was requiring 500 to 700 units of insulin a day. I was instructed by my doctors to go on an insulin pump. Last December I read your book in great relief because; finally someone who has actually lost weight through a permanent life style change had written a book on exactly how they accomplished such a monumental task.
Since December 2009 I have lost 60 lbs (27 kgs). I am also now only requiring about 30 units of insulin a day. My doctors look at my A1C records and tell me it borders on miraculous, I have you to thank for my life style change.

"I’m losing weight and it’s improving every area of my life. I look better, feel better and my relationship with food has completely changed..."
I’m losing weight and it’s improving every area of my life. I look better, feel better and my relationship with food has completely changed. I’m on track to a new beginning, had about 30 pounds to lose to get back to a lean body. Nothing has worked till now. It’s been easy, effective and it’s also having an effect on my alcohol consumption. I just don’t crave it like I used to.
Though I still enjoy good wine, I just don’t drink as much because my body doesn’t want it and I don’t feel the need for the stimulation. This is having an effect on my weight too and it’s being done totally naturally. I give my body what it wants and if it doesn’t crave something I don’t give it that and it’s an amazing transformation I’m going through. I don’t crave the same foods I used to and when I eat, whatever it is, I have a spot inside that becomes full before my stomach really feels it and I can stop eating, take a break even, and I’ve never been like that. This is easy and I feel fantastic. I love to walk and have done so for a long time, I’m really enjoying that even more now as I listen to the audio’s in this package (do wish I had more audio though as I’ve listened and listened over and over to what I have). The pounds are not coming off "fast", they’re coming off slowly but very naturally and easily. I’m really starting to look different, leaner, and I’m keeping off the scale for a few more weeks. It doesn’t matter what the scale says, I look better and know I will continue to look better and better because I’m not dieting, not fighting in a battle to limit food intake and I can tell my body is "working right", like lean people I now. My fat programs are turned off. The difference in the way I feel is SO AMAZING.
