Lose Weight, Reduce Stress & Overcome
Emotional Challenges Using Meridian Tapping
Learn this Powerful Mind-Body Healing Technique in Minutes
VIDEO: Stress and emotional trauma create hormonal
imbalances that lead to weight gain. Meridian Tapping effectively reduces stress and breaks harmful emotional patterns that are keeping you “stuck” in your current state.
If you suffer from feelings of overwhelm, depression, or anxiety; if you have trouble sleeping or if the stress of your life feels suffocating; then there’s a very good chance that your emotions are contributing or even causing you to gain weight.
My name is Jon Gabriel, and I used to weigh over 400lbs.
My problem started when I moved to New York City in my 30’s. Back then, my rent was $300 a week and I was only making $200.
My business partner was aggressive and threatening, and even my office felt more like a battlefield than a workplace. Worst of all, as my business grew and my outward life improved, my emotional life just became more and more troubling.
Within a few short years, I ended up with multiple mortgages, 2 car payments, and a long, stressful commute both ways. I was newly married, I was ambitious, and while it probably seemed from the outside that I was doing everything right, the pressure and tension of my lifestyle kept me just below boiling point all day, every day.
Most of the Time, I Could Barely Keep it Together…
I didn’t know this then, but after a decade of biomedical research, I now understand that this type of intense stress over time (stress that I’m sure you’re all too familiar with) actually causes biochemical changes in your body that can lead to massive weight gain.
Have you ever experienced feeling hungry for no reason? Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night and crave the worst possible foods? This happens to everyone once and awhile, and we can fight it off; but when you’re chronically stressed like I was, your cravings are insatiable, day-in and day-out.
Here’s what happens…
Chronic stress mimics a famine state. Your body gets confused and signals you to eat more food in an attempt to keep you safe. Your primitive biology gets mixed up by our modern world—and the results can be devastating.
I remember nights when I’d have 3 different restaurant delivery guys at my door at the same time. I’d turn up the music really loud so they’d think there was a party going—but there was no party. It was just me.
I can laugh about it today, but it wasn’t funny when food took up so much of my conscious thought and seemed to control me throughout the day. Like most people, I thought it was my fault. I thought I just needed to find the perfect diet or get a better fitness program.
But What I Learned Was Completely Unexpected…
After trying and failing at all the traditional approaches to weight loss, I became a fanatical researcher and uncovered a “stress-and-fat connection” that no one was talking about back then.
Very quickly, I realized that all the diet and exercise knowledge in the world was useless if I didn’t balance my body naturally, from the inside out. While everyone focused on calories, my research revealed that hormones held the real key to weight gain and weight loss.
And I’m happy to report that I was on to something.
Over a period of 2 1/2 years, I lost an amazing 220 lbs, and completely transformed my body and my life. I’ve kept the weight off now for 10 years, and I’ve taught this inside-out approach to weight loss to over 350,000 people all across the globe through my books, coaching programs, and seminars.
And I’m pleased to say that this method with its mind-body focus is finally being embraced by both the mainstream and alternative doctors worldwide. Why? Because your mental and emotional health lay the foundation for your physical health.
You simply cannot separate the mind and the body; and in reality, the solution to your weight problem often lies in reconnecting, reducing stress, and finding emotional peace.
And this is why I’m here with you today…
The first step in solving your weight problem is recognizing that the stress in your life is contributing or even causing you to gain—just like it was for me. But the next step is even more important.
You need to find ways to reduce stress safely and consistently without giving up your job, your friends and family. But where do you start?
With this very question in mind, I invited a small group of 12 participants to work with myself and Carol Look, a gifted Meridian Tapping expert, psychotherapist and healer. We came together for a private workshop to talk about the real issues in our lives: workplace stress, relationships, financial struggles, loss, hardship, and pain.
Many people would ask: “What does any of that have to do with weight loss?” And my answer is, “Everything!”
We called the workshop, “Lose the Stress, Lose the Weight” and we decided to use Meridian Tapping as our primary technique for healing and release. If you’re new to this practice, Meridian Tapping is a modern healing modality based on the ancient Chinese system of acupressure points.
On a very basic level, you talk yourself through the biggest challenges in your life while tapping these energetic points in a specific pattern. Immediately, it reduces your stress response and creates a sense of calm. This is measureable, noticeable, and in some cases, extremely dramatic.
Through my own healing process, I’ve used and continue to use over a dozen different mind-body healing modalities—meditation, visualization, yoga, qigong, and more—but what I love about tapping is that it’s a self-healing practice meaning you don’t need to pay a therapist to do it, and you can take it with you anywhere.
That is Very Empowering!
Tapping was new to me too, so I was skeptical but open-minded. But after spending an entire weekend with Carol and 12 other participants, I can honestly say that tapping for stress reduction and weight loss is one of the most powerful tools you’ll ever learn.
And since it’s completely safe and simple to learn, I think everyone serious about personal transformation should learn to use it.
So if you’re struggling right now with stress and feelings of overwhelm, if you have a weight problem and need help…
… then I’d like to introduce you to Carol Look and 12 remarkable people who were brave enough to share their stories and their healing journeys with you on film so you can learn and apply these tools to your life.
Tapping for weight loss is an in-depth and deeply human experience that will provide you with real-world tools you’ll use now and for the rest of your life.

Is Tapping for Everyone?
It would be a mistake to say that meridian tapping is for everyone (nothing is for everyone); but the fact that so many different people of all walks of life have found it beneficial gives me confidence to recommend it to anyone with an open mind and emotional challenges that need to be addressed.
To give you an idea, here are some people I know personally for whom tapping has made a huge difference in their lives:
- Highly-stressed employees who feel like their work is war
- Busy moms who feel tugged in all directions
- Men and women in emotionally abusive relationships
- Parents and spouses who have lost a child or life partner
- War veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorders
- Children struggling to overcome the pain of a parent’s divorce
What the Film’s Participants Are Saying…
“Wow, I am happy to say I am a happier, healthier person. Thank you” – Jackie
“Thanks for the amazing gift which keeps on giving. It has been transformational.”
I have even been tapping with my daughter, and she has seen results. How wonderful is that, you have already impacted 2 generations. I went from worrying about projecting my fears of lack onto her, to sharing this powerful tool that she can use for the rest of her life! Thanks Jon for seeing the potential in tapping and being there for us completely during this emotional experience, and of course Carol for sharing her amazing gift which keeps on giving. It has been transformational. May it touch many lives in as powerful a way as it touched mine.
Frequently Asked Questions…
Q: Is it true that local governments are using tapping to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?
A: Yes, it’s also been used in war-torn Uganda where people have lost their families and are suffering, and in local schools when there has been tragic loss of life.
Q: Is this like hypnosis?
A: No, this is nothing like hypnosis, you do not go into an altered state or use suggestions of any kind.
Q: Is this better done in person?
A: In person tapping with a tapping therapist is wonderful, and if you get the chance to experience that—do it! But tapping is something anyone can safely learn at home too, which is why we recommend it so highly.
Q: Is this like talk therapy?
A: No, this is mind-body therapy based on present emotions. You will not be asked to relive traumatic experiences from the past, this is a different approach.

A: No, tapping is done with 2 fingers, it’s quite simple and effective.
Q: Is this the kind of thing where I have to believe in Eastern religions or chants to make it work?

Q: What if I don’t like it or it doesn’t work for me?
A: No problem at all. If for whatever reason (or no reason at all) tapping is not for you, the program has an unconditional, 365-day guarantee.

Tapping restores emotional balance and turns off the drive to overeat. This film clearly demonstrates the link between stress, trauma and
weight. This is the real weight we are carrying.
“Very engaging. Well worth watching!”
I have to admit I’m impressed with this film. Jon Gabriel really knows his stuff, and his warmth
and passion are inspiring. Carol Look is a legend in EFT circles, and is so great at explaining
tapping and making it accessible. Together, they make an awesome team. The personal stories
of the participants are very engaging. Well worth watching!
“Tapping is a powerful, but underutilized technique…”
I just had the pleasure of watching The Gabriel Method’s Tapping for Weight Loss DVD, “Lose the Stress, Lose the Weight.” Carol Look and Jon Gabriel present several clients struggling with weight loss and show how a tapping session can help them change their eating habits. Tapping is a powerful, but underutilized technique.
“A simple, gentle way to release mental and emotional pain and lose weight for good.”
Having healed my body (and lost over 60 pounds naturally), I know how important it is to go beyond diets, to lose weight and keep it off for good. This DVD shows a simple, gentle way that anyone can use to release their mental and emotional pain and start to lose weight today. I highly recommend this film!
My Hope for You…
I created this program in New York City, my former home. For me, New York is the epitome of stress, and since it was where I gained all my weight, I wanted to go back and work with people in that area to show that even in the most stressful city in the world, you can learn to let go and move forward. You can lose the stress and lose the weight.
My hope is that you find this program inspiring; but most importantly, I hope you find it useful in your life. I know first-hand how challenging it can be to lose weight, but I also know how effective practices like tapping can be for creating positive spirals in your life that lead to massive change.
I wish you all the best…
p.s. You’ll notice we’ve included a number of bonus sessions with other Meridian Tapping experts. As Carol and I went further and further along with this project, more and more people wanted to contribute—so I’m thrilled to be able to share these bonus teachings with you as well.
